Now, 10 sizes down from a size 16 to a size 6, Jennifer says she's still not used to shopping for smaller size clothes—and not used to the attention she gets from fans over her appearance.

Oprah: A size six, when you say that to the world, sounds unattainable. ... Because I wasn't a size six in the third grade! So, a size six seems like a foreign concept.

Jennifer: It was foreign to me at one point too.

Oprah: Now does it feel real?

Jennifer: No, not yet, because it's a mental thing. Your mind has to catch up. And to me, I'm still the same. I'll have somebody come up to me and say, "Wow, you look amazing." I'm like, what have I got on? What are they talking about? I forget what I look like.

Oprah: Are people treating you differently?

Jennifer: It's the weirdest thing. I mean, men have gotten a whole lot friendlier!

This kind of attention is something Jennifer says she's still not used to, since she says she used to think of herself as "the voice."

"I'm like, 'Don't look at me—listen to me. I want you to hear me sing because that's all that ever really mattered to me,'" Jennifer says.
