Tina Fey Trimmed Down With Weight Watchers

I've been a fan of Tina Fey ever since she was on SNL. With her hit TV show 30 Rock and her recent outstanding imitations of Sarah Palin, I love her even more. She's adorable, smart, and smokin' all rolled into one.

Apparently, she wasn't always as slender as she is now. In a recent Vanity Fair interview, she says that during her early SNL period, she started dieting after seeing herself on camera. She weighed around 150 pounds, and though that's not much for a 5'4" frame, she felt she was starting to look unhealthy. She said, "I looked like a behemoth, a little bit." The star joined Weight Watchers right away. This program involves a pretty strict point system that limits the amount of calories you take in. Good for Tina for losing weight in a healthy way. You can catch her on the cover of January's Vanity Fair looking fabulous.

I love Tina Fey! I think it's great that she is a "normal"-looking celebrity who doesn't seem obsessed with her weight. And I love her style!

She is sooooo beautiful. I love that she embraces her ineer nerdy girl and lets it shine through. I hate when girls/women abandone who they really are in favor of trying to be like "insert-name-of-starlet-here" because they think this is what will get them noticed. I hate to say it (and I consulted with quite a few guys I know about this) in a sea of the same old clevage and same old ill-fitting dress you can always spot the hot-librarian (who's hotter because she doesn't advertise it and stays true to who she is). I love hot librarians...I bow to the queen.

how much does she currently weigh now? I'm 5'4" so it would be interesting to compare. She does look healthy and fit. :)

Sugasuga, I agree. I am 5'7" and I weigh 146 pounds. I still feel like I need to lose some more. I think 150 seems heavy for 5'4", but I guess it all depends on the person.

I can express surprise honestly here, because I believed that 150 lbs. was quite a lot for a 5'4" woman. I am 5'8" and weigh 150 lbs. and am trying to lose a healthy way (lots of work I'd rather not do!) :)

Fit, I just want to thank you for the following statement: "She weighed around 150 pounds, and though **that's not much for a 5'4" frame**..." (emphasis added) I've never heard anyone admit that on a health-based blog--I'm 5'4' and have gone from 180 to 145 lbs and feel GREAT. Then I read some "health" writer's ramblings about how huge my weight is for my body. Thank you for being a bit more realistic. And I agree, Tina is an inspiration and looks great!

Weight Watchers is the most realistic diet I know of. I believe in it because nothing is off limits; it's just about controlling your portions. She always looked good to me, it never struck me that she needed to lose some weight during her early SNL days.

well this just shows you that if you're able to monitor your in take and be healthy about things - then that's a good thing. she looks fantastic - and it's great that she realized how things were going when she could get a handle on herself. i'm proud of her!

Good for her! I really like seeing celebs break through the fad diets and do it the right way. I can also vouch for Weight Watchers. I joined in March of 2006 and hit goal in August of 2007 after losing just over 70lbs. I love my new, healthy lifestyle.
