    Default Ricki Lake: 'I can't believe I was fat'


    Ricki Lake has trimmed 140 lbs. from her all-time top weight of 270 pounds and says she is holding steady.

    "I cant believe I was a fat person for most of my life," the former talk show host, rocking a sexy black Herve Leger dress (size small), told PEOPLE at a recent benefit for the New Space for Women's Health, a New York City birthing center slated to open in 2010.

    "I didnt have surgery and I worked hard. There's no secret. Im active. I watch what I eat," Lake, 40, adds.

    But she's certainly not immune to the pressure to stay thin. "According to Hollywood standards, I'm not a thin girl. Im a normal girl," says the mom of two boys, Milo, 11, and Owen, 6. "I dont want to perpetuate that obsession but yet I am also guilty of wanting ... to lose weight."

    "I'm just grateful that I have sons and not daughters because its that much harder," she says.

    Lake sticks to meals delivered by a service called Fresh Dining ("It's organic, it's fresh, and I still love it," she says) but admits unpredictable factors in life could one day interfere.

    "With the weight stuff I don't have any answers," she says. "Something tragic in my life could happen and I could balloon and gain weight. I cant promise I will be like this forever."

    Recently, Lake has been focusing on making a sequel to her 2007 documentary The Business of Being Born, and is working on a guide to pregnancy, due out in May.

    And with the holidays in full swing? "I will be really conscious because I have this book coming out and I want to look great," she says. "I dont need to lose anymore weight. [But] I dont want to go backwards. So I'm not going to pig out this Christmas."

    I can't believe that she thinks I am dumb enough to believe she weighs only 130.

    130 looks about right to me. I think she's kinda short.

    She looks good.

    I always think of her from Cry Baby, she was HUGE in that movie.

    She's around 5'4" and she looks around 130 to me. *shrugs*

    I think she looks great, especially for someone who's lost half her body weight.

    i've always liked her. it sounds like she has very realistic expectations & a good head on her shoulders about her weight loss. good on her!

    She does look amazing! Very pretty...

    Anyways, I don't know about anyone else but in that particular picture of her I totally see a curvier version of Lisa Edelstein or 'Cuddy' from House!

    Right on cue. Another celebrity (and counting) whining about, crying about, bragging about, blah blah blah about, her weight and anything related to body image and blah blah blah.

    As predictable as death and bloody taxes, wait for the weight gain rebound.

    Already she sounds "born again", one of those former fat people who have scorn for those who are still fat
