Too Much Weight Cause Ricki Lake to Faint

“I was fainting and once had to be hospitalized with an IV drip,” she said. “I took it to an extreme. It wasn’t a size I could maintain. My goal weight is a healthy 10 stone now.”

Although she has achieved her goal weight, the 44-year-old star says she hasn’t conquered her battle with her weight.

“I wouldn’t say I’ve conquered it,” she said.

“I still battle with it and always will. Doing Dancing with the Stars in 2011 got me in amazing shape – the best of my life – and now I’m at a healthy weight. I’m not obese anymore.

“I was enormous, so I’ve got a handle on it. Would I like to lose another stone? Yes. But I’m not a big person anymore.

“I’ll never be skinny. I’d rather be fit and happy than emaciated and malnourished. I have to be at peace with my body no matter what size it is.”

Isn’t that what we all need? To be in piece with our bodies regardless of our size…

Ricki LAke is not the kind of girl that gets a Nose Job
