In other unrealistic news: talk show host Sherri Shepherd is telling everyone she wants to fit into a size 2 dress for her upcoming nuptials. The 43-year-old co-host of TV's 'The View' says she hasn't started shopping for her wedding dress yet because she wants to drop enough pounds to fit into a "single-digit" wedding dress.
Sherri recently announced her engagement to TV writer Lamar Sally, who, reportedly, fully accepts her 5-year-old son from a previous marriage.
There is nothing wrong with losing a few pounds to please your man, but drastic weight loss is never advised. The trouble begins when you radically change your look despite the fact that your man doesn't ask you to change anything for him.
Obviously, Sally is happy with Sherri at the weight that she is, or he wouldn't be marrying her. And if he isn't happy with her weight, then why is she marrying him?
It seems as though Sherri is self-obsessed with her body image, and as I wrote yesterday in my Medical Minute post on Body Image Disturbance -- that is always a bad sign.
