Sherri Shepherd is following in Mo’Nique’s footsteps when it comes to upping her weight loss game.
The former co-host of The View is out there showing off her snatched waist after losing 25 pounds giving up this simple thing….SUGAR!
“Getting it in!!! Over 260 days #sugarfree … can’t begin to describe how #amazing I feel. Energy, clarity of thought and mind. Focused … patient w my son. Hearing from God a lot more clearly. Present,” she wrote on Instagram over the weekend.
Adding, “I’ve done this slowly and steadily and since March I’ve come down over 25lbs. This is not a fad- it’s my life that is at stake. – It feels so good to feel.”

Tried on some swimsuits from @Torridfashion & they fit!!! It’s been a long journey full of prayer, self-encouragement, wanting food, craving sugar … forgiveness when I fall, cajoling myself into the gym & onto a jump rope… crying when I did 3 min of jump rope (may not be a lot to you but THREE min jumping rope- almost took me out🙌🏾) … thankful for the love & encouragement along the way of friends & some beautiful people I met on IG … at 168.4 lbs, I am still not where I want to be but I feel AMAZING! Mental clarity, focus and more discipline due to removing #sugar from my life (154 days #sugarfree)… as I was eating a Reese’s Cup, Jeffrey asked me who was going to be his bodyguard if I died … hit me like a ton of bricks. So much going on… I was trying to numb myself with food so much so that my son was having anxiety attacks. I realized God had given me everything I needed to take control of my health… I feel like I am getting there one choice at a time. Hopefully this encourages you ♥️🙏🏾 #sherrishepherd #singlemom #workinghard #teamhealthy #keto #lovemyson #nothinggoodcomeseasy #bekindtoyourself
Throughout the years, Shepherd has been very open about being diagnosed with type-2 diabetes back in 2007. She told USA Today in 2013 that learning she had the disease saved her life.
“If I didn’t have diabetes, I would probably be at the International House of Pancakes eating a stack of pancakes with butter and syrup,” Shepherd said.
“I learned how to eat. I learned how to get rid of the white foods — the pasta, pancakes, cereal, anything loaded with sugar.”
We are more than happy that Sherri is living her best life at her best weight.
