I have rules about eating, exercising and rules about staying positive. And these rules are sacred to me.

I don’t know about you, but every time some joker points me out as I walk through an airport wearing extra-small Dolfin shorts, a tank top and leg warmers, I get a little upset.

Puberty for me was graduating from Thousand Island salad dressing to Caesar salads. It was like going from hot dogs and hamburgers to beef stroganoff, or from ice cream in a cone to creme brulee.

When I lost my weight, I went and bought about 15 different types of underwear to see what would look good on my new body. It’s exciting!

Take a moment every day to find peace. Pull over to the side of the road, turn off the radio, and find peace.
