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.

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.
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.
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.
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 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?
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.
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?
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.
Honesty is very sexy.
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.
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.
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 never, ever, ever had deltoids! Oh my God, when I'm doing exercises and I see them pop out, I'm like, Yes!
I thought, If I'm so afraid of a bikini, there's something wrong. And so I had to get back into one!
My eyes aren't special, my nose isn't special, my mouth isn't special.
We all have our painful pasts we have to get through.
