Much-loved comedian Magda Szubanski appears to be struggling with her weight again.
She has been spotted in Sydney carrying a few extra kilos – but her agent tells 7News she is happy and healthy.
In November 2008 she very bravely took her battle with the bulge public, becoming the spokesperson for diet company Jenny Craig.
"I couldn't get clothes to fit me in the fat lady's shop and quite frankly I went enough is enough," she said at the time.
Initially weighing in at 121 kilograms, she shed an impressive 36 kilograms in nine months and kept it off for three years as the face of the weight loss giant.
But in photos, obtained by 7News, there is a very different side to Magda on show than the one she has long promoted with Jenny Craig.
She split with the company in June this year, and since then has put on around fourteen kilograms.
Nutritionist Susie Burrell believes rebounding after losing a significant amount of weight is a common issue among dieters.
"The key thing is to get back on track because the more times you rebound, the harder it is to lose weight," Ms Burrell said.
Magda’s agent advises she is proud of the kilos she shed with Jenny Craig, but more importantly hopes she has helped inspire thousands of others to take the first step to losing weight.
