1 Being able to fit into clothes I couldn't before is great. To be able to walk into a room and not feel self-conscious, I don't ever remember feeling this way.
2 I thought I couldn't get up and sing about freedom when I had been chained for so long.
3 I want to be healthy, and I believe my body will get to whatever it's supposed to be. It could be a size 8 - but personally I like a girl with a little meat on her bones! I don't need to look like the models on the magazine covers in order to be beautiful.
