Sherri Shepherd premieres her bathing suit body on The View

Sherri comes out at 3:20

Sherri Shepherd, one of the hostesses on The View, has lost weight through a three month regimen of diet and exercise, chronicled on the show. Shepherd, who suffers from diabetes, dropped 10 inches on the program but what’s better is that she was able to stabilize her blood sugar naturally and go off all medication for her condition. Last week she underwent her first bikini wax, a painful experience which she taped for the show and called “worse than having a baby.” Yesterday Sherri premiered her bathing suit body and she looked great. Sherri says her goal was to show people that “you don’t have to do anything crazy” to get to a size where you feel comfortable in a bathing suit.

Hot topic: Sherri Shepherd’s slim new body!

After months of dieting and exercising, she fulfilled her promise to walk out on stage in a bathing suit on Thursday’s The View.

Walking on stage to “I’m Every Woman,” Shepherd, 42, proclaimed, “I feel really great. I just wanted to show people that you don’t have to do anything crazy. You just have to make some choices and exercise and the weight will drop off. I hope some folks were inspired.”

Since May, she has lost 5 inches from her waist and 10 inches overall. (She didn’t reveal how many pounds she shed.)

Barbara Walters said her colleagues “were very proud” of Shepherd, who celebrated by indulging in ribs and M&Ms that exec producer Bill Geddes brought her as a treat.

Dieting hadn’t been easy, Shepherd told in June.

She had been eating “a lot of grilled chicken, a lot of salad, a lot of water,” she said. “I’m miserable!”

In terms of exercise, she told Us, “I do a lot of stairs, a lot of planks, a lot of squats, a lot of treadmill, a lot of screaming — and I do it four times a week.”

Though the work-outs were intense, she told Us, “I have a lot of energy.”

Sherri is also featured in People Magazine this week in an article titled “I like the size I am!” Sherri looks incredible and she probably feels so much better about herself. I don’t watch this show, but I heard her say during her bikini wax segment that she was married for 12 years and either got divorced, or was going through a divorce. (Wikipedia has her marriage ending in 2007.) It’s got to be a great boost to her self esteem to lose weight. Checking out pictures of Sherri, she did have a date to the BET Awards in late June so I bet there’s already a special man in her life. Good for her!

    Good for her. I know a lot of people think she’s an airhead… but she seems like a NICE airhead, at least.

    More than the shape of her, I am so pleased that her blood sugar is self-regulating. That takes work and dedication, but will mean a longer life for sure.

  2. yeng says:

    still don’t like her, but good for her. she did something about it.

  3. Diane says:

    Watched the show briefly, the comedic talent is good. The hosts are uninformed and rather boobish on any topic. Sherri’s schtick was the JW, which wasn’t a pleasant listening experience. (I’m not into being recruited = )

    What is cool about what she did is the change in her diabetic condition … she’s dropped all meds = )

  4. daniel says:

    looks like a tranny from the waist down

  5. .... says:

    Even though she’s had to many abortions to count Christians love her.

  6. MaiGirl says:

    As someone who has several diabetics in my extended family, I am very happy that she has been able to get off medication, and that she feels comfortable in her own skin. Her body is really unusual in that she seems to carry her weight from the waist up. She is shaped like an upside-down triangle.

  7. lovesit says:

    Wow her legs look great. Good for you Sherri! It is an inspiration, and a good deed on her part to show that American women can address their health issues in this way, instead of living a lifetime on meds and just accepting bad health. I would hate to be that busty, though. It always just makes a person look bigger. Maybe in the future she will consider a breast reduction to go with her reduced figure – that has gotta be hard on her back having a bust like that.

  9. fizXgirl314 says:

    thin enough to wear a bathing suit? don’t they make those in all sizes? what exactly does that mean? I never understood why women set that as a goal… that’s a fairly abstract goal…

    anyway, that guy she’s with looks pretty good. At least she has no problems finding a man at any weight…

  10. Tia says:

    She is still is disgusting and gross because she is so hateful. She judges others and claims to be a Christian but yet she herself has had so many abortions she lost count. Way to go, take the focus off of yourself by spreading hate about others.. SHAMEFUL and pathetic.. she is nasty.

  11. Katyusha says:

    Presenting someone who just did all that work with ribs and M&Ms seems counterproductive, doesn’t it? I would be pissed!

  12. Neelyo says:

    Wow that’s great. Now if she could learn to read she’d be a total package.

  13. Ron says:

    Don’t like her, but I give her props for being honest. Unlike Star “diet and Pilates” Jones. Good for her.

  14. lena says:

    I read on another site that she is shaped like the tazmanian devil, and i couldn’t agree more, sometimes a breast reduction wouldn’t hurt, but anyways congrats on the weight loss, it’s not easy and she should at least be commended for that

  15. fizXgirl314 says:

    oh wow, she needed a staff of four people to lose the weight… way to keep it real :/

    btw, why does she look so white in the middle picture?

    ok i’m just being a “hater” now… props, whoever you are :-p…

    and does that show include ANY of the original members? way to be loyal barbara bitchers…

  16. the original kate says:

    she looks good, but that is an unflattering bathing suit for someone who is topheavy like she is. however, i still think she is annoying. also, i’ve had bikini waxes and i don’t think they are that painful…ladies? what do we think?

  17. wow says:

    I like Sherri. She is still top-heavy so her shape in this bathing suit looks out of porportion. But she is on a great path and I am happy for her.

  18. fizXgirl314 says:

    the original kate, whenever i have bikini waxes, i wish for death… yes, it’s THAT bad…

    i’ve got course hair down there (yes, lovely i know :/) so it’s extra painful… so it does depend a lot on how much and what type of forest you’ve got growin… evergreen, tropical, coniferous, that sort of thing :-p

  19. sassenach says:

    I do not like her and she looks gross. I also can’t believe that she has the nerve to trash other people but her dumb ass didn’t know if Earth was round or flat.

  20. Lenora says:

    I’m shocked that people are saying that she looks good. What the heck are the standards for what looks good? She looks awful.

  21. chachunkins says:

    holy cans!

  22. hatsumomogirly says:

    I wonder, whatever happened to going Au natural down there? I mean, its not nasty and if your worried about flashing hair, why not a cute boy short ensemble?

    When I was doing my hospital hours in the E.R., ( you know if you’ve been to the e.r. on the receiving end- you’re stripped and loosely covered with a sheet for easier treatment) I was surprised with how many women and teen girls waxed or shaved them selves- bald. I think its completely unsexy and what man would want to bang a woman who looks like a prepubescent girl down there?

  23. Victoria says:

    Good for her! Why to take care of your self girlfriend!

  24. Jess says:

    Great for her! Xtra kudos for being able to completely rid her life of meds for Diabetes…

    Im diabetic insulin-dependent(Type I) so sadly I have to remain so till there is a cure but she’s a perfect example of how for those where wieght-loss IS the cure(Type II), you should and CAN totally do it…bangin body lady;)

  25. Green Is Good says:

    She should get a breast reduction. She’ll look more balanced and it will be easier for her maintain a workout regimen. It will no doubt be easier on her back, too!

  26. Katyusha says:

    @ Original Kate
    I’m going to disagree with fizXgirl.
    I mean, the first time you ever do it, it hurts like hell, but after time, it’s not that bad. And I got brazilian waxes.

    I doubt it can be compared to birthing a baby. I think good ole’ Sherri is exaggerating. Has she even had a baby?

  27. Katyusha says:

    @ Hatsumom

    “I think its completely unsexy and what man would want to bang a woman who looks like a prepubescent girl down there?”

    More than you’d think 😉
    But that being said, i don’t think it’s a matter of looking like a prepubescent girl.
    Some people just cannot stand to have body hair on them.

  28. fizXgirl314 says:

    you can’t disagree with my experience lady… i already told you it depends on how course it is and how much you have…pain is a pretty individual and personal thing… :/

    hatsumomo, i also agree with you. none of my boyfriends have ever really cared… i think a real man just wants to get it on… if he’s gonna nitpick about every little hair on your body or the ten extra pounds you gained or something, then he’s either gay, or way too superficial… either way, i ain’t interested.

    I have to admit though, this new trend of men shaving/waxing their chests is HIGHLY disturbing… PLEASE STOP!

    in any case, i don’t do it much these days anyway. a little trimmy trim usually suffices. once in a while i’ll get a wax with girlfriends or something… i dunno why… maybe i’m a masochist? :/

  29. EvilPenguin says:

    Okay, so she lost some weight. Good for her. She says she’s miserable doing it, which means she won’t maintain it. Losing weight isn’t the hard part…keeping it off is the hard part. And she has to keep the boobs. Without them, she looks like a man. Is there any difference between her hips and waist? What an awful bathing suit for her body type.

  30. Michele says:

    Lenora – seeing that the average American woman is a size 14, she does look great.

  31. Katyusha says:

    You’re right, you’re right.
    I used “disagree” for lack of a better word that I could come up with at the time.

    Also, in my experience, it’s never the dude who requested the hair removal. I think men really don’t care, I agree with you there.
    From what I know, it’s the chicks who just don’t want the hair there.

  32. mo-knower says:

    she was “miserable”??

    with that attitude she’ll gain it all back, and then some.

  33. Monalicious says:

    I just think it’s funny she is dating “MVP” a WWE Wrestler. And he’s got a hell of a history himself. Was a bad kid who got into a gang, spent 9 1/2 years in prison for kidnapping and robbery, and then ended up in the WWE!! Now, he has become a very popular wrestler, and kids everywhere love him. Matter-of-fact, they had a storyline on Friday Night Smackdown(the show MVP wrestles on) about him and Sherri getting together.

  34. Faith says:

    I say good on her. Yes shes top heavy, what alot of people may not know, is that having breast reduction surgery is major surgery. If shes happy with them good on her.
    Yes she may have had a staff of 4 to help her, but why not? She ultimately stuck to the diet and did it herself, they didnt lose the weight for her.
    In regards to her history, thats not the issue here, its about her weight loss.
    Hopefully she will keep the weight loss off as this will also help with her diabetes.

  35. Tony says:

    Needs breast reduction. weird shape. Not supposed to reward a diet with food.

  36. Amber Taylor says:

    She may not be as fat, but she’ll always be a retard…

  37. Snoopchew says:

    While on vacation last week, I happened to turn on the View and they had a chef who turned out at least 7 classical dishes of Julia Child (they were also reviewing the movie). This lady, whatever her name, was scarfing down on all the dishes that she forgot she was supposed to be taking part in the interview. If she lost any weight she more than likely has put it back on. What an over-eating pig. She even tried to talk with the food stuffed in her mouth. No class.

  38. Ti says:

    She’s no dating MVP it’s just a storyline.

  39. Magsy says:

    Is this really necessary on a talk show? Do we have to see Barbara WaWa and Whoopi in a bathing suit too? How funny, these ladies act all smug about their all women “View” show and they resort to showing skin? You’ll never see their male counterparts wearing bathing suits. Was Tyra Banks involved with this?

  40. Acne face says:

    Then specify the most common treatments that can be applied to remove, treat or eliminate acne. These treatments may be oral or topical (applied directly to the affected skin).
