Phylicia Rashad Will She Lose the Weight?
At 60, Phylicia Rashad often gets fans telling her that she looks good for her age. “I don’t know what that means!” she says. “Honestly, it’s about the way I feel.” Three months ago she wasn’t feeling great: After walking up three flights of stairs, Rashad became winded. “I thought, ‘Hmmm,'” says the 5’6″ actress, who spent many years as a comfortable size 8 but says the pounds steadily crept on because she wasn’t eating “appropriate” portions. “I was hefty!” But since Nov. 24, after signing on as a Jenny Craig spokeswoman, Rashad has lost 16 lbs. on a 1,200-calorie-a-day meal plan. Where the scale will end up, she isn’t saying—because she prefers to focus on another goal: “I just want to be light on my feet.”
