Jenny McCarthy's career started after she posed for Playboy, but these days she's all about being a mother. She's known for her incredible body, but that doesn't mean she hasn't battled with her weight like every other woman.

"For anyone that doubted my 211 lbs at pregnancy here is a photo I found! Meaty meaty ass! Whoa!" McCarthy tweeted, along with the photo of her pregnant belly.

McCarthy managed to slim down after the 2002 birth of her son, Evan, with the help of Weight Watchers. However, the pressures of Hollywood that hasn't stopped her from enjoying life.

"Good summer thus far. Gained 10lbs. Good for me. Meaty butts rock!" she tweeted.

Weight Watchers is one of the most popular weight loss programs for us mere mortals, but more and more gorgeous celebs are turning to the common sense program.

Jennifer Hudson

Singer and actress Jennifer Hudson dropped 80 lbs. after having her son, thanks to Weight Watchers. Now, the gorgeous Oscar winner is a spokeswoman for the company.

"I didn't expect to go as far as I did!" Hudson told People StyleWatch. "I go into the store and they try to put me in 4s and 6s and I'm like, 'Who are you trying to talk to?'" says the former size 16 singer. "My mind hasn't caught up yet."

We think she looks incredible!

Ginnifer Goodwin

Diminutive actress Ginnifer Goodwin has the sort of body that makes us think she's always been super thin. Surprisingly, that's not the case.

"I have been a member of Weight Watchers for 23 years," the 32-year-old told Health earlier this year. "It's the only thing on the planet that doesn't dehydrate you or just make you miserable. I've never had a dramatic weight problem, it's just that I tend to indulge, and then I need to get back on track so I can button my pants."

Well, that makes us feel a lot better!

Sarah Ferguson

The Duchess of York Sarah Ferguson has had her share of struggle and scandal over the years, but one of her biggest successes in life is her weight loss with Weight Watchers. Fergie has lost 50 lbs using the system over the past 10 years.

However, it wasn't always easy for the red-headed royal.

"It's very, very difficult to keep focused and motivated," Ferguson said earlier this year. "You have to learn to control the darkness in your mind. And you have to be honest with yourself about what your triggers [to overeat] are. Because if you don't, you'll choose food instead of anything else."

Don't we know it!
