Jackie O becomes WW ambassador as she seeks to lose 10kgs
KIIS FM and The Masked Singer’s Jackie ‘O’ Henderson has joined the WW family as a national brand ambassador ahead of her own weight loss journey.
Henderson will enlist the assistance of WW’s (formerly Weight Watchers) program and mobile app to support her on her mission to lose 10 – 15 kilograms.
The radio host said she joined WW with the aim to feel healthier and happier in her own skin, as well as setting a positive example for her young daughter.
“I realised I’d stopped wanting to leave the house and was avoiding social outings because I just didn’t feel well, motivated or confident anymore,” Henderson said.
“I joined WW so that I can feel healthier, be more active, feel good about myself, and fit into my old clothes again. It’s also important to me that I set a good example for my daughter about a healthy lifestyle and approach to eating.”
Henderson also touched on her fast-paced lifestyle as a contributing factor to her unhealthy eating habits, citing her early-morning commitments at KIIS FM as being particularly tough to manage.
“It can be a challenge to set a good standard for the day when you’re up at 4:30 am and running out the door – your whole day and eating schedule can be a little bit out of whack from there,” she said.
WW’s Australia & New Zealand managing director Mathieu Le Renard said that the brand was excited to see Henderson assume the role of WW ambassador.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Jackie O to the WW family,” Le Renard remarked.
“She shares our passion for the positive impact our science-backed program can have on people’s lives and we believe her journey will resonate among our community and inspire many who wish to lose weight and get healthier.”
Henderson actually announced the news on Seven’s Sunrise program and then spoke about it on her radio show this morning.
Henderson said she approached WW for the assistance, rather than the other way around.
Co-host Kyle Sandilands noted Henderson had already lost some weight, making her “almost rootable”. He said he was proud of her commitment, but had no interest in joining her on the journey.
“You’re looking good, I’m telling you. Whatever you’ve done, it’s a remarkable change the last few weeks,” he said.
