It's such a rush doing a concert and seeing people actually mouthing the lyrics.
I'm a working mother… You try to pay the bills, you try to keep your life going and there's pressure.
It's normal to gain weight during pregnancy. It's something that has to happen to your body.
I have a child to feed and a spirit that can't be crushed, so I'm able to move ahead.
I have a real issue with radio these days. I just am not into the current music.
Was I a perfect gastric-bypass patient? Yes. Was I a perfect gastric-bypass pregnant woman? No. I made a decision to enjoy my pregnancy… So sue me!
If I'm known as the girl that lost weight and it's been six years later and I've still kept off the 110 pounds, God bless. Because I never kept off 100 pounds before in my life.
The most important thing I think we need to remember is that we're a work in progress. Do not be ashamed or afraid to ask for help. That's what I did. I asked for help.
If you walk down the street, within five minutes you will see someone who is morbidly obese or obese.
It's more about going to a place inside of me as a woman who knows that I'm never going to have perfection. And that I deserve to be healthy and feel healthy.
Going from 300 pounds to 150 pounds was the biggest change of my whole life.
I used food as a coping mechanism for many, many years, and it was my best friend for a long time.
I always think I am one of the millions and millions of people that struggles with an addiction to food. I don't know how to relax, that's my problem.
It's not just being overweight that's dangerous. Stress is dangerous.
My husband and I are best of friends first and foremost. We fight like cats and dogs, but never stay mad for long. I was lucky to find him, he is in every way, my soulmate.
Life presents itself in constantly changing ways, but you're able to accept the challenges, rather than recoil, throw up your hands, and go on a binge.
When someone has a weight problem when they're pregnant, they will struggle before, during and after to lose weight.
I decided that it's either, you know, if I want to have children, have a family and – and live a long life, I've got to make some real, real serious changes.
There are days where I've lost weight and I feel bigger or fatter or uglier and I want to just hibernate. I'll find every excuse not to exercise. I hate it.
When you film a reality show, it's so jumbled. They shoot episodes in all orders!
My fat cells have a memory like Einstein! I'm proof that surgery is not a magic potion. There are many ways to sabotage it.
I've had so much stress in the last year so it's really a struggle. I never hide, when I walk down the street, someone's going to take my picture, that's what I look like.
I never hide, when I walk down the street, someone's going to take my picture, that's what I look like.
I'm definitely up in weight. I'm looking forward to getting an exercise routine again. It's like a daily decision.
I started to put on weight when I was about four and a half and it got really bad when I was around nine. I ballooned. I was about 110 pounds.
When my work gets crazy, I make sure to always have vitamins, water and proper food with me. That has helped me to lose 33 pounds.
The surgery will always be a huge part of my life. I'm going to need to help people with weight problems for the rest of my life so that I can maintain my weight.
When you love food as much as I do, staying healthy is not easy. I mean, moderation, not deprivation. That's my new way of living. I always want more and that's just my life.
I did have reconstructive plastic surgery and a tummy tuck. And from hip to hip, there's a very big scar. It looks better than it did… So I say, if you don't like that skin, have it removed. This is my advice: if you're gonna do it – just go for it.
Certain foods no longer agree with me. If I eat French fries, I might feel sick to my stomach.
You know, after all these years, it's just like we are who we are and it's a struggle for me and sometimes I'm heavier and sometimes I'm thinner.
