Janet Jackson

The pop singer was recently announced as the new face of Nutrisystem‘s “Get On It” program, saying that she was looking for an easy way to maintain her weight loss. “My success plan is to be healthy and feel good about me,” she toldGood Morning America.”

So far, it appears to be working, with Jackson reporting that she quickly shed 10 pounds in the first month. “There are millions of women like me who want to be successful but don’t have the tools to do it on their own. I hope I can help inspire them.”
