How she stays happy and healthy:
"I've been on every fat diet you could imagine, and I've also had moments where I wouldn't work out for months. But for me, being healthy really begins in my mind. I've realized that words have great power and they will make you or they will break you. If you're telling yourself that you are stupid and ugly and fat, that is what you will become, and you'll deteriorate because of those words.
Now if you tell yourself that you are bold, brilliant, and beautiful, then that is exactly what you are going to be. Kind words have an impact on your actions, and your actions have an impact on your exterior, and it'll encourage you to reach your goals. I always tell myself in the mirror 'I am bold, I am brilliant, and I am beautiful,' and then I talk to all the things I've hated over the years, my thick thighs, the cellulite on my ass, and now I show them ALL off."
