Divorce isn't the child's fault. Don't say anything unkind about your ex to the child, because you're really just hurting the child.
People come up to me and tell me how I changed their life and I've inspired them. And they tell me their stories, and that keeps me going.
I'm excellent at losing weight, but I've never been excellent at maintenance. I have some better days than others in terms of being hypervigilant, but with maintenance you don't know if you've been good at it until you're done.
I have faith in faith. God is there, whether we have faith or not, so why not have faith in him?
If you say you're fat, all of a sudden people like you!
I started thinking: 'Okay, what's wrong with wearing a bikini? I look better than I looked in quite a few years, so why not? What am I afraid of?
Happiness is a choice. You can choose to be happy. There's going to be stress in life, but it's your choice whether you let it affect you or not.

My eyes aren't special, my nose isn't special, my mouth isn't special.
Honesty is very sexy.
Ed is very sexy because his emotions are really there - not forced.
I kept buying bigger and bigger jeans, and once the size 14s got too tight, I thought, That's it. I'm not buying the next size.
I've realized that I'm more important than food is. I love a big slice of pizza, but I love myself more. Being thin is about changing the way you think about yourself. It's about saying that you deserve to be healthy.
I'm a food addict, that's my downfall.
We all have our painful pasts we have to get through.
Professionally, I have no major goals. That's partly because I'm really flaky. I want things, but I don't go after them. I'd rather they be placed in my lap.
I never, ever, ever had deltoids! Oh my God, when I'm doing exercises and I see them pop out, I'm like, Yes!
If I sleep in and don't run, I'll feel a little bit off because I didn't do what I was supposed to do. But I'm not going to beat myself up because of it. I'll just get right back on track.
I think a lot of people think because I was getting the divorce, that was really the catalyst for gaining so much weight.
I thought, If I'm so afraid of a bikini, there's something wrong. And so I had to get back into one!
Anybody can have this body if you do enough sit-ups and you just make a decision that 'Every day, I'm going to work out.' There are some days that I just don't feel like doing it, and I don't. But more often than not I get up and I get on the treadmill that I want to shoot and just do it. The first 20 minutes are the hardest.
I'm a full-time mom right now and a part-time actress.
Any partying I did, I did at home. I didn't want to be in the spotlight... There's an easy way to get away from the paparazzi; they're not that difficult to hide from and you don't need to go out for coffee every five minutes.
The only things I really love about myself physically are my ankles and my hair.
I have obsessed about my weight in some sort of way all my life. I used to write in my journal what I weighed every day.
Once a food becomes off-limits, then it takes on this whole other personality. 'Forbidden' is more tempting. And it becomes something evil, but food is food. It's there to nourish your body.
As an emotional eater, I eat to soothe.
I've earned all these years on my face. I don't want to be a liar if in five or 10 years I do get some Botox, but needles in the face scare me, so I don't really know if I am ever going to do that.
After a lifetime of losing and gaining weight, I get it. No matter how you slice it, weight loss comes down to the simple formula of calories in, calories out.
I've got this old-school workout - push-ups, sit-ups, tricep dips. And it worked. Anybody can do this at home.
