Gayle King likes her cake.

And she'll eat it, too—even if she is on a diet.

The CBS This Morning anchor went on Weight Watchers and September. She opened up to me last night about her healthy journey at the opening of The Color Purple on Broadway.

"This is the beauty of Weight Watchers—you can eat exactly what you want and I for one needed structure," King said. "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. I had salad the rest of the day, but then the next day you get right back on it," she said.

Gayle King, Weight Loss


King, 60, looked fab last night in a purple dress and heels and matching jewels. Earlier in the week, she was also showing off her slimmed down figure in a green gown at the Kennedy Center Honors gala in Washington D.C.

"Slow and steady wins the race," King said.

King's bestie Oprah Winfrey became partial owner of Weight Watchers earlier this year.

However, the two haven't teamed up to shed pounds together. "I'm doing it with myself—with me, myself and I," King said. "I'm not new to Weight Watchers. I've done it before."
