Judith Ripka

Judith's Weight Loss

Started 1282573046.857 in Judith Ripka | Last reply 1282619059.287 by ~dece8~

I missed last night's show and saw Judith on the videos this morning. She looked amazing. It appeared to me that she had dropped even more weight from her last visit to QVC. I'd love to know how she is doing it - it's so difficult at that age and something is workinig for her. I'd be shocked if she's working out hours each day or anything drastic. Does she ever mention it on air? TIA!

She looks great. Not sure if she lost more but she does look wonderful, fresh and younger, I think. I am sure it is nothing more than good diet and a bit of exercise. There really are not tricks or shortcuts.

I agree. She looks great.

You can tell Judith is truly happy, for it seems to me, 2 radiate outwards.

I agree with you, Judith looked fabulous!!! The clothes she chooses to wear really compliment her. I can only wish that I could look half that fabulous at her age or any age!! She is so upbeat and great with the callers. She's a person I would love to meet someday!

She has always looked great but I think she looks a bit younger now. Very pretty and glowing. I enjoyed watching and listening to every show except the 6 am (would have been hard to explain to DH why I was up watching tv at that time). She didn't mention directly about losing weight but at one point Lisa said to her "you wear an average bracelet, right"? And she said "I do now".

Judith looked great and I thought it looked like she had lost alot of weight. It really makes her look younger. I watched her son during the night and you can tell he loves his mother and family. He has respect for her, but to him, she is his mother!! She has I think three sons who are in the business and the one that was on, Brian, is president of the company. Such a humble and nice family. He said that they (brothers and mother) never raise their voices to one another and they seem to really get along. He said he doesn't care about titles. He is really a good looking young man.

Her hair looked GREAT too - I don't know if it was just weight loss or a combo of other things but she she looked wonderful - kudos to her!

ITA, great job Judith! We never see her standing up-- always behind a table, but if we can tell from our vantage point then she probably really has lost quite a bit of weight. And the fact that she is happier and looking younger is the best part!

I think from the look of her face that she had lap surgery

courtnab1282582006.0271617 PostsRegistered 5/15/2010Colorado Springs
Hmm, didn't even think of that Jenni. You mentioned her face-- how do you tell that someone has had lap surgery from that (not skeptical, just wondering for my own edification)? Eitherway, you gotta do what you gotta do to take care of your body and be healthy.

I had the lap band surgery...and from the speed of her weight loss, it was my first thought

{#emotions_dlg.laugh} I doubt that. Maybe she lost 20-25 lbs, hardly a lap candidate.

FYI, lap band surgery is only doctor approved for those who are 100 pounds overweight, or (less) if the patient has a life threatening health condition.

Our dear Judith looks like she is drinking more water and doing flexibility exercises. Thats all it takes! (I know! Wink)

I thought she looked amazing in Shoshona's necklace during the her premier. Judy looked so good that I bought the necklace! It rocks!

I wonder what she did? I need any help I can get. Perimenopause coming here. :(

I am a bit confused. Are we talking about the same person? Why would Judith Ripka wear Shoshona's necklace?

Yes Judith looks beautiful! It looks like she has layers in her hair now instead of all one length.

Judith acted as an advisor during the design process of Shoshanna's fashion jewelry line. My understanding is that Shoshanna (sp?) has been a long time customer of Judith's. HTH!

Judith is 'mentor' to Shoshanna and was helpful in the launch of her fashion jewelry line. She made a brief appearance at the beginning of the show's premier.

Judith had the surgery. She lost more than 25 lbs. (I know an exec at the Q and it's generally known).

More power to her! She looks fantastic!

I think Judith looked amazing - I especially loved her outfit on the first show. Great to see a "softer" look (no suit jacket with the braid around the collar). I always wondered what she looks like standing up? Is she short or tall? Has anyone ever seen her from the waist down?

I also loved her hair in the last few visits. I wish mine would hold that style!
