After revealing a stunning 60-pound weight loss last year, Marissa Jaret Winokur has gotten the motivation to maintain her new physique from her 5-year-old son, Zev.
"It honestly is my one reason for being healthy," Winokur told PEOPLE at the American Diabetes Association's Tour de Cure bike ride in Santa Monica on Thursday. "I never ever did this before, and I truly did it to be there for my son."
"I'm a 40-year-old and I have a 5-year-old kid," she says. "I don't want to be unhealthy. I want to be around for as long as I can."

No junk food? No problem.
That seems to be the case with Elizabeth Banks, 39, who manages her eating habits like a pro, telling Women's Health, simply, "People ask me how I stay thin, and I'm like, 'When you go to the grocery store, buy more bananas than cookies.' "
And when she does splurge on sweet treats, "[The freezer] is where my Girl Scout cookies are," she shares, adding that the prime location allows her to forget about them – instead of eating them.

Sharon Stone has one of Hollywood's most enviable bodies – and she credits it to an unconventional workout.
"I put on dance mixes and I really dance my brains out at home because I enjoy that," the actress told PEOPLE at the New York premiere of her upcoming film Lovelace at the Museum of Modern Art on Tuesday.
"That saying – 'Dance like nobody is watching' – I do that. I dance like nobody's watching and I dance hard until I sweat and I think that that’s very good. It’s good for the mind and the body."
Along with her dedication to her dance moves, there's more that keeps Stone, 55, in phenomenal shape.

Since becoming a mom nearly 11 months ago, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi has been focused on getting fit.
And on Tuesday, the Snooki & JWoww star showed off the stunning results.
"I work out in the gym seven days a week. I go with my trainer five days a week, I have a treadmill downstairs or I do crunches," Snooki, 25, told PEOPLE at SELF Rocks The Summer Party in Manhattan. "I try to do something at least once a day."
Once famous for going clubbing and her drunken shenanigans on MTV's Jersey Shore, Snooki now seems to be a proudly reformed party girl.
