According to I Love Old School Music, Jackson revealed that,

"My struggle with managing my weight goes back to my childhood; to when I played Penny on "Good Times." The first day, I was in wardrobe, and they bound my breasts because I was developing early. That told me then that I was not good enough the way I was. The second season they told me that I needed to lose weight.” 

The actress continued that her co-star Mike would also call her names such as "Dunk and Slaughter Hog," and although he meant no harm, it got to her.
