Country star WYNONNA has found a new way of tackling her weight problem - she's thrown her scales away. The singer, a self-confessed food addict, has been struggling to lose weight after ballooning to 280 pounds (127 kilograms), but she admits stepping on the scales was a depressing experience. She tells American news show The Insider, "I threw away my scales. I don't live by numbers anymore, what a drag. I now have a programme that I work every day. "At some point you have to sort of stare in the mirror, naked, and go, 'I'm not perfect but I'm real.'"
