To keep people away from them. I never wanted someone to want to approach me in a sexual manner because of my physical body because of child abuse issues. The talk show host made her much anticipated return to the series. The year-old has shed the weight in the past 14 months since having vertical gastric sleeve surgery after suffering a heart attack the previous year. It seems Rosie is almost unrecognisable following the staggering weight loss, as she said that a group of fans failed to realise who she was when they were chatting at the cinema.

The star revealed that after 10 minutes of talking to the group, one of them said: When Rosie informed them that it was in fact her, they were apparently in shock. She's not the only one: Meanwhile Whoopi has shed 'about 35lbs'. She is pictured right in April of last year. While Rosie is returning to the show and Whoopi is staying on, there are two new faces in the form of Rosie Perez second from left and Nicolle Wallace.

While Rosie and Whoopi are said to be butting heads — with rumours swirling the talk show host is not pleased the actress is still moderator — they can agree on one thing: The Sister Act star also said: Kristin Chenoweth was a guest on the show and performed a tribute to the late Joan Rivers. Rosie and Whoopi were moved to tears by the performance on the season 18 premiere.

Then I would start the next day. If I was lucky, I could make it through the day and not mess up again. There were many times that I would start a diet, only to gain weight because of that kind of thinking.

I tried them all too. I tried low fat, no fat, low carb, high carb. I tried liquid diets, cabbage soup diets. I tried diet pills and shakes and bars. I tried cycling, where you eat this or these kinds of foods one day, and these kinds on another. I tried only eating things that say low fat, or low sugar. But everything ended up being so restricted, that I always failed to keep the weight off. Looking at pictures of myself was painful.

I would hide behind the camera. But it made me think. Someday my kids will look back and not see pictures of me. They will not see me having fun with them. I wanted them to see us together, being happy, active and a family. I knew it was time to get the weight off. Besides not being in the pictures, I was unhappy.

While I was not as big as some, I was bigger than a lot, and I could feel it on my body. I am a little girl and all the extra weight was dragging me down. And when we went to the park, all I wanted to do was sit. When I decided that I needed the change, I was very interested in Nutrisystem. I had heard good things about the program. I had seen the commercials where the celebs lost massive amounts of weight. What intrigued me was that the food came to the door.

But the best part was the food was pre-portioned. It was the exact right amount of calories I needed to lose weight, in a healthy way, and learn what I had been doing wrong for so long. I loved the fact that there were self-stable meals because with a family my size, fridge and freezer space is limited. Like I said, I was bigger than a lot and smaller than some. I joined the program at It was hard writing that number down.

It is still hard seeing that number. All I could think, was how did I ever get this big. I am sure I blamed it on having 5 pregnancies.

I am sure I blamed it on genetics. No matter what I blamed it on, it was because I love food. I used it for comfort for being happy, for being sad, and because I was bored. It was also because I never knew how to limit my food. And I was lazy! Not hard because I was losing out on anything.

I hate great meals, everything that I could want, really. It was hard because I freak out on a diet. And suddenly I want all of those forbidden things. The only thing that was actually forbidden was eating food not on the plan. But really, all of my favorite foods were on the plan. I was losing weight. And by week 5 I had lost 17 lbs.

I was so much happier. I had more energy. I was able to run around with the kids, and not feel worn out and drained all of the time. My skin looked healthier and even my hair seemed to shine. I was finally feeling confident about myself, for the first time as an adult. The really nice thing was that I was learning portion control. Hubby was working at a pizza place and would bring home a large pizza almost nightly.

Once in a while, I would cheat and enjoy a slice of pizza. Before Nutrisystem, I would never have a slice of pizza. I would cave and eat a slice of pizza. Then I would say when I messed up and eat 4 or 5 slices of pizza. On Nutrisystem, to be able to eat a slice of pizza and a side of veggies was a huge step for me. When I would hit a small plateau, I would cut out my small cheats and my body would jump-start back on track. Like most people when starting a new diet, I had a few concerns.

I wanted to change my life. Could eating food on a plan, food that was sent to my house, really be a life change? But also could the food actually taste good? I mean it is diet food. Of course, then there is the actually sticking onto a structured food plan.

But the food was actually good. I did not LOVE all of it. But over all the food was ok. And since I could have pizza, donuts and hamburgers, sticking to it was easy. I had heard some people say that it took them time getting used to eating small portions, but I was stuffed.

I was not used to eating that many times a day.
