Jackie ‘O’ Henderson has revealed her incredible new figure after losing a whopping 10kg in just a few months.
The KIIS FM radio host, 46, embarked on her weight loss journey in June after signing with WW (previously known as Weight Watchers) as a celebrity ambassador.
Now, having finally hit her goal weight, Jackie says she’s feeling better than ever.
Brand-new me! Jackie ‘O’ Henderson showed off her trim new figure on the cover of Woman’s Day on Monday, after shedding 10kg with WW (previously known as Weight Watchers)
‘I feel great. I’ve got so much more energy and I don’t walk past the mirror anymore and think, “My God, how did I get to this point?”‘ she told Woman’s Day on Monday.
‘I can wear what I want, and I finally feel like my old self again.’
Jackie signed up to WW after noticing her weight was spiralling out of control due to her busy schedule, irregular sleeping patterns and poor food choices.

Jackie’s day on a plate
Breakfast: Chicken or vegetable soup
Lunch: Turkey burger or Cruskits with ham, cottage cheese and tomato
Dinner: Fish and vegetables, or poached chicken
Snacks: Nuts and yoghurt
Since signing up to WW, Jackie has been following a strict, yet nutritionally balanced, meal plan.
Describing her day on a plate, Jackie told Woman’s Day she prefers to eat savoury food for breakfast, such as chicken or vegetable soup.
For lunch, she’ll have a turkey burger or Cruskits with ham, cottage cheese and tomato, while dinner typically consists of fish and vegetables or poached chicken.
For snacks, the mother of one has swapped unhealthy options for nuts and yoghurt.
Discussing her weight loss on Monday’s Kyle and Jackie O Show, Jackie said she ‘never exercised once’ during her 10kg slim-down.
Weight Watchers does offer an extensive range of exercise plans for clients, but it seems Jackie chose to avoid that part of the program.
Jackie, a notorious yo-yo dieter, has struggled with her weight for years.
Last May, she admitted she was ’embarrassed’ about the weight she’d gained during lockdown and was desperate to lose the kilos before starring on The Masked Singer.

Embarrassed: She even revealed she was so self-conscious she would no longer let her daughter 10-year-old daughter, Kitty (left), see her naked
Jackie even revealed she was so self-conscious she would no longer let her 10-year-old daughter, Kitty, see her naked.
‘Over the weekend I was in my bathroom and the door was closed. I took off my clothes because I was going to get in the bath,’ she explained at the time.
‘Kitty went to walk through into the bathroom and I screamed, ‘Don’t come in!’ And she said, “Why?” And I said, “Because I’m naked.”
‘Kitty said, “You’re my mum. I see you naked all the time.” And I said, “I know, but I just don’t want you seeing me naked right now.” Because I’m just so embarrassed about how much weight I’ve put on.’
Three months later, Jackie revealed she’d begged The Masked Singer’s producers to remove ‘unflattering’ footage of her looking bloated after gaining 5kg overnight.
She said she’d experienced water retention and bloating after eating 80 seaweed snacks backstage the previous night.
‘I didn’t want to leave the house’: In June, Jackie spoke about how her weight gain had affected her life, after she stacked on the kilos during Covid and became the ‘biggest I have ever been’
Unfortunately, it was too late for a costume change, so Jackie had to squeeze into her dress and felt uncomfortable throughout the taping.

‘I stopped wanting to leave the house and was avoiding social outings because I just didn’t feel well, motivated or confident anymore,’ Jackie said on air, adding that she would spend up to $300 per week on Uber Eats.
Woman on a mission: ‘I joined WW so that I can feel healthier, be more active, feel good about myself, and fit into my old clothes again,’ Jackie said in June
She went on to explain how her busy lifestyle and early-morning starts affected her sleeping pattern and energy levels.
Before she knew it, she’d slipped into unhealthy eating habits.
‘It can be a challenge to set a good standard for the day when you’re up at 4:30am and running out the door – your whole day and eating schedule can be a little bit out of whack from there,’ she said.
‘I was never cooking for myself, Uber Eats was my best friend. It was expensive and a really unhealthy habit, which made me feel so bad about myself.’
‘I joined WW so that I can feel healthier, be more active, feel good about myself, and fit into my old clothes again,’ she continued, adding: ‘It’s also important to me that I set a good example for my daughter [Kitty] about a healthy lifestyle and approach to eating.’
