Ricki Lake lost an astonishing 20 pounds during her six weeks on Dancing with the Stars. Has that been too much weight too fast for the former talk show host?
Right now the slimming down bride-to-be sports a figure that is more svelte than ever. It is hard to believe that she weighed 270 pounds at one point isn't it? This dramatic weight loss should be good for Ricki Lake's wedding gown hunt after DWTS is over. She decided to wait to start shopping for the dress she will wear down the aisle because she knew that she would experience a transformation on the popular dancing show.
Of her weight loss, Ricki Lake said, "I'm definitely a size six now. I'll probably be a size four by the end of it. It's come to the point where it doesn't matter. I no longer wear Spanx."
While 20 pounds is more than recommended for healthy weight loss in six weeks (that is 2 pounds a week), it is not too crazy. Obviously she has been putting in the hours at dance rehearsal, and she is bound to lose weight due to the new activity level she is at right now. In fact, according to her partner Derek Hough she is "going home and eating a balanced meal. It's really that simple."
Now if only everybody could go on a crazy stint on Dancing with the Stars, then maybe everybody could have Ricki Lake weight loss. Have you noticed her transformation over the past several weeks of the show?
