“For your heart to pump, pump, pump, pump, it needs the least amount of weight possible to do that.’ So all of the people who are saying, ‘Oh, I need to accept myself as I am’ – I can’t accept myself if I’m over 200 pounds, because it’s too much work on my heart. It causes high blood pressure for me. It puts me at risk for diabetes, because I have diabetes in my family.”

She explained that being skinny isn’t the goal, but that staying a healthy weight is crucial.

“This whole P.C. about accepting yourself as you are – you should, 100 percent. Weight Watchers is a mechanism to keep myself on track that brings a level of consciousness and awareness to my eating. It actually is, for me, mindful eating, because the points are so ingrained now.”
