Ricki Lake may have recently lost a ton of weight, but she's also got a healthy mind and spirit. To us, she's a role model in every way possible and her latest blog is definitely one worth checking out!
The Dancing With The Stars alum has been a size 24 and a size 4 in her lifetime, but admits she wouldn't change a thing. Her size not only helped her snag a lead role in John Waters' Hairspray, but helped her realize that living a healthy lifestyle has nothing to do with the size of her jeans — it's about enjoying life to the fullest!

It's hard to believe that the star of Bravo's Thintervention, Jackie Warner, was anything but rock solid. The reality TV star revealed to In Touch that even she struggled with her weight.
Here are some HIGHlights:
On gaining 50 lbs in college:
"I was alone in LA, and it was a huge culture shock. I was depressed and ate junk food every day. I was miserable and felt so out of control. I tried covering up with baggy clothes, but I was insecure from the time I woke up until I went to sleep.
On losing the weight:
It took four months. I was ambitious, and knew I wouldn't get anywhere carrying all that insecurity. So I started walking to school every morning, exercising and eating healthy.
Going from 169 lbs to 118 is quite the accomplishment! We like hearing about anyone who takes control of their life the healthy way!
Looking good, honey.
