Sally Struthers got off to a hot start in her career, breaking through at just 23 years old in the hit film “Five Easy Pieces” with Jack Nicholson. The next year, Struthers was cast as Gloria Stivic in the sitcom “All in the Family”, which helped her to become a household name. The series also resulted in a spin-off series for Struthers (though it didn’t last long), and then starred in the series “9 to 5”. Though her popularity would end up waning during the 1990s, Struthers was still a well-known name because of her previous acting work and her activism, most famously with the Christian Children’s Fund.

Early on in her career, Struthers didn’t seem to have a problem with her weight. After her career peaked in the 1970s and 1980s, however, all of the talk about Struthers seemed to focus on her weight that had increased over the years. It was estimated that during that time, Struthers had put on close to 100 pounds since her “All in the Family” days. She became the focal point of a lot of criticism and jokes, and her career suffered as a result.

Struthers had been getting plenty of work in Hollywood, but she wasn’t the main star like she was before, and many of her roles involved voice acting. Then, in 2012, Struthers surprised many when she seemingly turned her weight around. Even though she surfaced in headlines for an unfortunate reason (being arrested for driving under the influence), she was seen smiling and healthier than she had in years.

A source close to Struthers said that “Sally has lost a lot of weight, and this is the first time she’s been back to New York since. She’s as tiny as when she appeared as the apple of Archie Bunker’s eye on ‘All in the Family.’ She looks fabulous.” The source didn’t reveal exactly how Struthers was shedding the weight, but said that she was living a much healthier lifestyle.

In the years since then, many of Struthers’s fans were expecting her to keep the weight off, or even continue to lose a few more pounds. It appears that Struthers has regained some of the weight that she lost, though she’s still lighter than she was at her highest when the 5’1” actress was estimated to be around 230 pounds.

Struthers was said to have dropped to around 150 pounds when successfully losing weight a few years ago, and is around 200 pounds right now. Back in her prime years of television success, she was around the 120 pounds mark. The ideal weight for someone at her height is estimated to be between 100 to 131 pounds, while 132 to 157 pounds would put her in the overweight category, and anything above being classified as obese.

Now 70 years old, it’s not as easy for Struthers to lose weight. Doctors suggest that by the time you turn 25 years old, your metabolism starts to drop by as much as four percent on a yearly basis. While that means the odds of weight loss are stacked against someone that’s Struthers’s age, it’s not impossible to shed the pounds. She already did it once in her 60s and can certainly lose the weight again.

In her most recent television appearance, Struthers was seen on the series “Maron”, and she’s also been on stage in recent years. She hasn’t been exactly hiding from the public, though she hasn’t appeared in as many mainstream roles lately. We’ll see if she’s able to lose the weight once again as being on stage so often requires a certain amount of fitness, but Struthers doesn’t seem deterred no matter how much she weighs. With as much as she’s accomplished in the tough entertainment industry, it’s easy to see why.
