Raven-Symoné Says Wife Miranda Inspired Her to Lose Weight: I Want to Be 'There for Her'
Raven-Symoné said back in May that she had lost 28 lbs., telling Good Morning America the following month that she is "low-carb as much as I can be"
According to Symoné, 35, she had "horrendous numbers" at a doctor's appointment before embarking on her weight-loss journey, and Pearman-Maday, 33, "doesn't want to take me to an early grave."
"I want to make sure I am there for her in the best health possible," she added.

Symoné and Pearman-Maday celebrated their one-year wedding anniversary on June 16, for which the latter shared a sweet set of photos and video footage from their big day.
In her own tribute, Symoné posted a selfie of her wife and said in the lengthy, heartfelt caption that despite the "whirlwind" of the past year, "You have done something to me that I thought wasn't possible."
"You've made me smile," she continued. "Not the one where I know people are watching or because I'm a girl and I need to. No babe the smile comes when my hurt brain tries to take over and then I see your face. A smile that reminds me everything is gonna be ok now."
"Our path together will be and has been covered in ice, but walking with you by my side, each step we take together melts it and my heart," Symoné added later. "I love you MVPM, you da plug, the snatcher, the writer, the lover, the mistress, the chef, the brain, the smuggler, the friend, the front and side chick, but most importantly your [sic] my wife."
