Queen Latifah Talks Weight Loss

When Queen Latifah signed on to be the new celebrity face of Jenny Craig, she wanted to lose weight, but mostly she was just looking to get healthier.

She set a goal for herself to lose 5 to 10 percent of her body weight and keep it off.

"For me, it's not about a body image thing. I feel pretty confident. I do realize I'm a role model to a lot of people, and I've been a role model for confidence. I feel being a healthier person is a good thing. If I can set the example for confidence on the inside, why not set it for confidence on the outside as well?"

Kirstie Alley lost 75 pounds and Valerie Bertinelli lost 40 on the plan, so Queen Latifah should have no trouble making her target.
