"My life today is almost unrecognizable to my life one year ago. Yes, if you look at me compared to one year ago, the first thing you’ll see is there’s much less to see. I’ve reduced my weight by 85 pounds and gone from size 20 to size 6. As incredible as that is, and I do look great, it’s the way I’m living my life now that means the most to me.
