Thirty-nine year-old actress Marissa Jaret Winokur has dropped a whopping sixty pounds! Good for her, she looks like a completely different person! She lost an entire Olsen twin!
She revealed in a new interview, “When I was a size 14, I was super happy. I felt confident in my body. The doctor was saying I’m not healthy, so I needed to change my way of life.”
She also said that even after all of her hard work and determination to shed the excess pounds, she still doesn’t believe that she can compete with the thin actresses in Hollywood. She said, “I definitely have moments where I’ll go to an audition or a meeting and girls are just so much skinnier. I’m still in Hollywood. I still will be considered a chubby actress.”
She doesn’t seem to be staying positive for the future, either. Apparently she has decided to keep all of her larger sized clothing just in case she puts some weight back on. She said, “I know it’s horrible. But here’s the thing…My fear is, what do you do? I have jeans that fit me great and what if I gain it back? I need those jeans.”
She went on to say, “There are moments in my life when I felt more comfortable in that body sometimes than in this body. I’ve had a great career. I’m happily married. I have a beautiful son. I’ve never felt like my weight defines me.”
Kudos to her for remaining so strong!
