Ricki Lake shares how she lost over 100 pounds in the latest issue of Us Weekly, on newsstands now.
The 38-year-old former talk show host once weighed in at 250 pounds and now checks in 123 pounds.
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.”
Ricki debuted her new fab body (size 24 to 4!) at the premiere of her documentary The Business of Being Born at the 2007 Tribeca Film Festival on last month in New York City.
