Also, I had the support of the panel and my team. We would call each other and talk about our struggles or how well it was going. I had my Jenny Craig consultant on speed dial. I called her sometimes twice a day! Exercise wasn't my problem. My problem has been overeating. For instance, pizza was a staple in my diet. When I'd come home and there was nothing in the refrigerator, I'd order a pizza and eat it in front of the TV.
But I didn't feel good. Now, I eat vegetables. That's the biggest change for me. How have you been doing since the show ended? Are you happy with the results? It's up there with my American Idol experience in things I did for myself. I love the way I look. I'm down like four sizes. I'm not a shopper, but I spent eight hours shopping one day just buying new sizes. I feel great, and it's contagious.
My mom is overweight, and she sees me eating my Jenny Craig and working out, and now she's lost 11 pounds. My brother's losing weight, too. Before I lost the weight, I'd learned to love myself the way I was. I felt pretty and sexy and confident. I grew up in the South, and my friends and I were all thick girls. I was one of the smallest. It never occurred to me that I had a weight problem, though I did struggle with it right after Idol.
If I had not been a strong person I would have been another statistic, a girl with an eating disorder. You can't stop liking yourself because of what people are saying about you. Now I think, losing weight the healthy way, making all these lifestyle changes, I can only love myself more now and be better at being me because I'm a healthier person. The first single from your new album is called "Change," pretty appropriate, isn't it? I cowrote nine of the songs on the album and it's percent autobiographical.
Every song is based on what I was going through. I was engaged and the relationship was falling apart. I wrote about my breakup, friendship, and my relationship with myself. I'd lost friendships, and those were hurtful, but had moments of real growth. I wrote whatever came out and let it evolve. It would have cost a fortune to get the therapy I got from writing!
Change is scary for a lot of people, but if something isn't working, you need to change it. Now after Fit Club, I've made a positive, permanent change within myself. Are you dating again? It's easy to get stuck in that place of "all men are bad and I'm just going to be by myself.
I don't think that all men are the same. I do believe that there are some good guys out there. I'm a relationship person. I want that in my life so I leave myself open to it.
I haven't found anybody yet, but I'm looking! Do you see yourself married with a family? I want to be a wife. I think I'd be a good mother, but I'd focus on being a good wife first because I'd want to make sure I had that connection with my husband before I even thought of bringing kids into my life.
It's not that I don't love kids - I do. She has appeared on the covers of the July issue of Figure magazine and the summer issue of UneQ magazine.
