Kelly Osbourne: How I Got Thin (preview of US Weekly)

Kelly Osbourne US Weekly Cover
Kelly Osbourne, why do I love you so? Is it your infectious smile? Your potty mouth? The fun energy that you and Louis Amstel brought to Dancing With the Stars? Is it because you have traveled the rocky road to Sveltesville and survived to tell the tale?
I just finished reading this week’s US Weekly magazine (due to hit the stands on Friday, February 26), featuring YOU, Kelly, in all your adorableness.
YAY, Kelly! You did it! You’ve dropped how many dress sizes? From a size 14 to a size 2! And you’ve lost how many pounds? From 160 to 118! Big time congratulations.
As your unofficial, self-appointed, Weight Loss Coach and as a person who has traveled the rocky road herself (I permanently lost over 50 pounds 8 years ago), I do have a few questions for you, if you don’t mind, based on your interview with US Weekly.
A bit of clarification for those who you have undoubtedly inspired and will now want to walk the walk and talk the talk (or is it walk the talk?) with you!
You mentioned that one must say, “I’m just not going to eat that anymore. I’m going to change my bad habits.” Brava, chicklette! That’s exactly right! I don’t know if you realize it or not, but those are ‘identity’ changing words. You are now a person who just doesn’t eat ‘that’ anymore!
However, a word to the wise. Science tells us that you cannot change a habit. Rather you can only create new ones. I believe that you have created a super-system of new habits. Just beware. If the old habit gets triggered, and you fall off the wagon, repeat after me “All Is Forgiven, Move On.” Don’t let a tsunami of defeat come in and crush you. It’s pretty much impossible to never have a bad day.
I noticed you used the word “try” quite a bit. “I tried to follow a diet, but ….” “I try to have no carbohydrates unless they are natural ….” “I try to drink a gallon of water …” Just remember, Kelly, as jedi Master Yoda from Star Wars said, “Do, or do not. There is no try.”
If I say I’m going to ‘try’ and make it for dinner, don’t set a place for me! It’s been my experience that when people say they will ‘try,’ they are creating wiggle room. I don’t think you are, I’m just saying … for your fans! I don’t’ want anyone to create wiggle room!
And … I was stunned that you “received more hell for being fat than for being an absolute raging drug addict.” Geeze Louise, what are people thinking. But after thinking about it for a second or two, I confess to not being entirely surprised!
There was a poll taken some time ago that indicated that people would gladly live 10 years less if they could just be thin! Oy! I do hope you will do your best, as the fabulous public figure with a stunning figure that you now are to help normalize the ‘fat’ thing.
Kelly, you most certainly did “dig yourself out of hole,” and I am genuinely happy for you! I loved the article. I’m sure that this issue of US Weekly will fly off the stands! A testament to how much we all love you.
Spread the word … NOT the icing,

    It’s really important to value ourselves no matter what size we are. If you lose weight and you still don’t feel happy with who you are then you may find another habit to distract yourself from feelings of low self esteem. A ‘weight problem’ is really a self-care problem. Start to care about yourself and start to do the things that make you happy and food loses it’s power. Eat ‘consciously’, you are more likely to eat appropriate amounts. Depriving yourself of anything can never work long term because our inner ‘rebel’ will sabotage us eventually. Freedom to choose what is right for us is key. Remember it’s only you that gets in your way!

    You are absolutely right to point out that by using the word ‘try’ Kelly could end up sliding back to her old habits. Using more decisive language will lead to taking better actions. It sounds like Kelly has been making good decisions lately.

    Kelly shows persistence& an uncanny ability to break away from both her parents and make her own persona-a real celebrity. I celebrate her excitement and passion!! At her age, I was so heavy and began one part of this wt-shedding journey, a behavior modification type program, and shaped up at that time. The old school use-one-plate, don’t clean the plate, eat your vegies program. Use a combination of changes-I agree, there is no “try”: took a 15 mile bike ride yesterday so forty years later I am still living it. Go girl!! Dance your heart out!!!

    Don’t miss meals. This is where most people fail. Contrary to popular belief, skipping meals doesn’t help you stay skinny. All it will do is put you down the path to anorexia, which is a path best not travelled. Eat all of your meals, especially breakfast, as it boosts your metabolism for the rest of the day, and without it, your metabolism will just be low and you’ll burn less fat when you do eat.
