During her interview with Parade, she said, "It was important for me to be healthy not only for the way I look or feel but also for the message that I was sending to my kids. I was telling them it's OK to be overweight and not take care of yourself, and that's not the message I want to send them."
For her journey, she took the help of an application called myfitnesspal. It helped her count the calories in her food and kept it under 1200 per day.
