    Default Ginnifer Goodwin: I've Been Dieting Since I Was 9

    Big Love's Ginnifer Goodwin has a big secret: she's been dieting since the age of nine!
    "I have been a member of Weight Watchers for 23 years and I'm back on it right now," she reveals in the January issue of Health magazine. "It's the only thing on the planet that doesn't dehydrate you or just make you miserable."

    Growing up in Memphis, Goodwin admits she wasn't always so health-conscious.
    "I really did go through a period when I was very little when I remember realizing that vegetables did not come out of the ground deep-fried," she recalls. "I changed my eating habits in fourth grade because I was a heavy little girl and I was unhappy."

    "I remember my mom making dinner for me the first night that I was on this new program, and I burst out crying because the vegetables were green," she tells the mag. "I thought she was trying to starve me to death."
    Now that she's older, Goodwin balances her diet with ballet classes and heavy cardio sessions at her local gym.

    "I have a trainer who used to be a New York City Ballet ballerina, and she does a lot of hybrid Pilates ballet," she says. "I like the elliptical, 'cause I feel like I'm dancing. And I'm also big on speed-walking outside. Like, I'll speed-walk a couple of miles, get a cup of coffee, speed-walk back. It's so easy! Just break a sweat for 30 minutes and you're fine."
    Though she sometimes still struggles with her appearance, the actress -- who's currently dating actor Joey Kern -- says that she's learned to embrace her figure.
    "Even when I'm too heavy, I'm still confident because I never actually let myself go," Goodwin says. "I can be indulgent for six months and put on some weight, but I still never actually get to the point of being unhappy and self-destructive."

    For some reason, I love this girl. And I think she's one of the rare natural and normal sized women.

    So you're happy to count calories for the rest of your life? That would make me miserable and it's totally not necessary.

    Side note: The spelling of her name bugs the bejebus out of me.

    Well, the kind of parents who would give a child a name with "creative" spelling are probably the same kind of people who led her to believe deep fried is a vegetable's natural state.

    ^^^ i dunno. my parents gave my normal name a cutesy spelling and i didn't realize that it was 'off' until my 20s or even later. if you are used to it you don't think about it. and no, my parents aren't hippies or even artsy.

    i know your name and as far as 'cutesy' spellings go, i'd say it's common enough that it doesn't seem weird anymore. it's definitely way better than 'ginnifer'.

    ^^^ well it's not as 'out there' as ginnifer but i STILL get comments about it. and back in the 70s got comments but i guess i didn't care. people assume that it is a nickname and i did the dumb spelling myself. then i show them my driver's license.

    isn't she also a vegan? i don't think i've ever seen a "fat" vegan. her body looks great. it looks normal, not too skinny and not fat, just right. and she's pretty.

    i hate the spelling of her name, too.

    Her wiki page indicates that she herself changed it from Jennifer to Ginnifer (Ginnifer Goodwin - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia). I don't know what she was thinking.

    ^ wtf?!

    I like her, but I really don't believe constant dieting is necessary or healthy. Sure, think about what you eat and plan your meals, but counting calories or weight watchers points just isn't necessary in most cases imo. If you're trying to lose a lot of weight or drastically change your eating habits, then it's a good thing to do. It's good to count your calories at first to get an idea of how much everything is, but I can't imagine doing that for the rest of my days. People get so obsessed with it. I think for someone of normal size just trying to maintain their figure and stay in shape it's crazy to obsess over every little calorie.

    I know a few chubby vegans because they live off french fries and pasta much.

    I have a friend who is vegan and quite overweight. Her son (also vegan) is overweight as well but to a lesser degree. They eat tons of pasta and bread.

    I wouldn't be surprised if she's the one who changed it and it used to be normal.
