Michelle Duggar Talks Weight Gain And Loss After 19 Kids

Ahead of the eighth season of "19 Kids And Counting," 20 of the 21-member Duggar clan joined HuffPost Live to talk about life as a Duggar and the show. During the conversation, matriarch Michelle Duggar opened up about what has worked to help her lose baby weight after so many births.

"I think accountability for me -- and Weight Watchers has been a great thing," Duggar shared. "And then friends, and my sweetheart. And my friend Cindy, that keeps me accountable."

"And she's so beautiful, she looks like she hasn't had any children," Jim Bob Duggar added. "And yet, she just looks amazing. And so I think it actually makes her younger. She's found the fountain of youth. I think having these children really has made her younger than women her age."
