Oprah: Valerie Bertinelli Recaps Her Weight Loss With Jenny Craig

Oprah-Valerie Bertinelli Loses Weight on Jenny CraigJun 1, 2011 – The Oprah Show has officially aired it’s last show but fortunately for us “Ultimate Viewers” the network is airing reruns called The Best Of Oprah. ANewDayANew Me caught this one, Losing Weight in the Public Eye With Star Jones, Valerie Bertinelli & Marie Osmond. Even though it originally aired April 1, 2009, their message is still relevant today as America tries to cop with our current obesity epidemic.

Valerie Bertinelli started her battle in the public eye when she signed on with Jenny Craig in March 2007 weighing in at 172 pounds. But battle she did. We all can remember her Bikini Body Jenny Craig national commercial when she showed of her 47 pound weigh loss after once saying she would never wear a bikini. I guess at 47 years old, she had no idea she could look that good! If you got it, flaunt it! And if she can do it, we can do it!

Valerie says the Jenny Craig diet works for her because while there are plan-specific meals, she can also eat something of her own. “For dinner last night I had salmon and some veggies and a glass of champagne.”

To keep her size 6 body in shape she does an old-school workout of push-ups, sit-ups and tricep dips. And it worked,” she says. “Anybody can do this at home.” She lost the first 40 pounds in the first year. That’s about 3.33 pounds a month,  a little less that 1 pound a week.. Very Doable!

At the time of this interview she was two years into her journey and admits that her new body still feels new to her. She has yet to get rid of her “fat clothes” and says “…I won’t know if I’ve conquered maintenance until the day I die!”

So ladies what they say about “don’t diet but make a lifestyle change” rings true because it’s not losing the weight that’s the hard part but maintaining it!

On a visit to Valerie’s Jenny Craig Blog today, her last entry says Three Years and Counting!  and Congratulations Valerie on your hit show Hot in Cleveland!
