Fisher has struggled with her weight for the past three years, but has joined Jenny Craig in hope to make a necessary change.
“A day comes when you can no longer face not wanting to leave the house because you don’t like the way you look,” said Fisher.She went on to say, “A day comes when you want to stop apologizing for it. When you want to make a decision to live the rest of your life in a healthy way.”
Fisher will appear in Jenny Craig’s new advertising campaign starting in February and will join the slew of celebrity spokespeople including Sara Rue, Jason Alexander, Nicole Sullivan, and Valerie Bertinelli.
