Shonda Rhimes is one of the most successful Black women in TV history but for the past several years, she’s also been struggling with her weight. Well, if you’ve seen her recently, then you know that struggle has been in the words of, Olivia Pope, the character she created, “handled.”

Rhimes says she lost 117 pounds over the last year the old-fashioned way – through diet and exercise. She told Extra that her main motivation was her children. Rhimes has two adopted daughters and had another one via gestational surrogate.

Still, Rhimes says she hates both dieting and exercise. But obviously, she likes both looking and feeling good.

    Losing 100+ pounds in a year can be done – especially when you are determined and have other things to occupy your mind (like three of the top shows on TV) plus the determination to accomplish what you set to do for yourself and your babies – – but if (as J Ant Brown suggested) she had surgery – so what!

  2. Great job Shonda, I too am on the mission to be fit and fab the old fashion way, exercise and dieting or eating healthy! I agree with Shonda I too hate it but it gets easier as the pounds are shedding away! Keep up the good work!
