HOW LOVE MADE STAR LOSE 100LBS!

By JIM NELSON

The View diva Star Jones credits her husband for inspiring her to shed 100lbs!

At 41, she weighed her heaviest at 250lbs and was desperate to find a man. But after meeting financial advisor Al Reynolds, she fell in love, they married a year to the day after they met and the weight came off.

That's just one of the secrets Jones, 43, reveals in her candid new book Shine: A Physical, Emotional And Spiritual Journey To Finding Love. "I wanted to find someone who would be my life-mate," Jones writes. "I knew I had to work on myself — make Star ready for him."

Jones also puts her weight loss in her book down to a program in which she limited the portions of food she eats and and exercising. With a goal of weighing less than Reynolds did by their November 13, 2004, wedding, Jones says that for eight weeks she did "intensive boot camp workouts with four different trainers" and Pilates.
