Weighing yourself can be sucky under the best of circumstances, but Today co-host Hoda Kotb says she got “mad” after she did it live on national TV.
The weigh-in, which happened on Tuesday, served as a kick-off for an intermittent fasting experiment Hoda and her co-host Jenna Bush Hager are trying. On Wednesday, Jenna and Hoda had their first meal of the day at 10 a.m. (avocado toast and egg whites for Hoda, and an egg white omelet with spinach for Jenna).
“We decided to stop eating between 6 p.m. and 10 a.m.,” Hoda said. “So we’re trying intermittent fasting, we’re seeing how it works. It’s supposed to help with not only weight loss but brain health, and energy and skin.”
Hoda said she’s already feeling the perks. “Yesterday, when I was coming home from work in the car, usually I’m kind of vegged out listening to something—I was weirdly alert,” she said. “I was texting people, I was responding to things. I’m sure people here were like, ‘oh my gosh, is she okay?’ But I was like, ‘yes, I can do it, let me see the video.’ It was very unusual for me. So maybe it’ll help.”
But Hoda hasn’t been happy with everything about this journey so far. She said went to the gym after she weighed in on live TV at 158 pounds. “I was mad after our weigh-in yesterday,” she said. “I was just sweating. They say that if you’re sweating, your fat is crying, right? So that’s what was happening.”
Jenna, who was 171 pounds at the weigh-in, also said she wasn’t thrilled with her number. “I was reminded why I don’t weigh myself yesterday,” she said. “I was playing with my kids and I kept having that one number in my head. And I was like, no, no. I don’t want life to be controlled by a scale.”
According to Hoda, the two won’t weigh themselves every day. Instead, they’re going to check their weight here and there to check on their progress. But Jenna said she thinks the weigh-ins are important for her. “I think I needed it, because I think I’ve been delusional,” she said. “The thing is, we’re not saying we need to be some number to be us—we’re happy with us. But we just want us a little svelter.”
