I've been watching Sherri Shepherd on her new Lifetime comedy, Sherri, and she looks fantastic. How did she lose the weight?

Shepherd, 42, was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and jokes she was forced to go on the "Lose-Weight-Or-We'll-Cut-Off-Your-Foot Diet." Kidding aside, the Emmy-winning co-host of The View took the diagnosis seriously because her mother died of the disease at age 41. "I am feeling really great," she says. "It is not so much about a diet. It is about making healthy choices in my life and learning not to beat myself up when I do slip."
