Weight Watchers sure is working for Gayle King!
The CBS This Morning co-anchor and BFF of Oprah Winfrey started the weight management program back in September. Since then, both ladies have both been updating fans on their progress, and on Friday, Gayle revealed a major milestone in her weight loss journey via Instagram with a before and after picture of the scale. "In 9 months have a baby???" she wrote, "orrrr lose 27.7 lbs on@ weightwatchers I chose to count points-it all begin 9-12-15...almost there"
Gayle went on to post another image of her scale that showed she was at 30.5 percent body fat. "Love this @underarmour scale so friendly!" she wrote. "greets you by name & tells you when you're DONE ! Body fat# YIKES!"
We think she looks great, and so does Oprah, who became an owner of Weight Watchers last year. These longtime best friends don't have a rivalry between them, though, when it comes to who will reach her goal weight first. "We don't compete about anything," Gayle told E! News. "We truly are cheering each other on always."
When it comes to her own weight loss philosophy, Gayle has a mantra: "Slow and steady wins the race."
She also doesn't believe in denying herself. "This is the beauty of Weight Watchers—you can eat exactly what you want and I for one needed structure," she told E! News. "But what's great is you can eat whatever you want and you decide how you want to your points. The other day I had two pieces of cake!"
"I don't recommend that," she noted. "I had salad the rest of the day, but then the next day you get right back on it."
