Ricki Lake is Back and She is Fit!

OK, so you may have read this title and laughed but I've gotta say Ricki looks good! She was recently on the cover of Us Magazine and I was stunned to see her looking so fab.

Here is what reports that she is saying on her dramatic weight loss:

Once weighing 250 pounds, newly transformed former talk show host Ricki Lake has revealed exclusively to Us Weekly the secrets behind her 123-pound, size-4 shape.

Lake, 38, who just debuted The Business of Being Born, her documentary about home birth and midwifery, sits down with Us and explains exactly how she got thin – and finally made peace with her shape after a painful past.

On crash dieting in 1991: “… I went on this extreme diet. I used to faint because I wasn’t eating and I was always exercising.”

On the most exciting thing about her new weight: “For the longest time, when I was very heavy, I couldn’t cross my legs. I couldn’t physically do it. LOVE that I can cross my legs now ... Even my shoe size is changing. My Jimmy Choos are too big now.”

On what she thinks of super-skinny actresses: “I think I have no wrinkles because I always had fat on my face. Really skinny girls age so fast.”

Talk about a blast from the past -- Does anyone suspect comeback? Regardless the woman looks great and I love commending anyone with the will to lose so much weight.
