Let Go Of Perfection with Your Diet, Body and Life

Video taken from the channel: Kimberly Platt

Amy lost 116 lbs in 13 months. That might sound like a big, daunting number. Amy certainly felt that way once.

She had no idea how to go about losing weight, had tried and failed before, going in half heartedly: I would cut my portions or eat salads for a week but I really did’t have the information to lose weight in a healthy way. I’ve lost 116 pounds so far and my journey isn’t over yet. It hasn’t all been easy.

Every day is a battle with food. It’s very hard on me but exercise does help me combat my cravings. Now I’m ready to conquer the next thing on my bucket list: to go on a cruise to a tropical island and love life in the sun!”. I had just finished telling her about my efforts to lose weight: 25 pounds in six weeks. She did not approve of my chosen methodology, and she was not alone.

I didn’t give up alcohol. → OPEN FOR IMPORTANT LINKS AND INFO After I filmed this video, I weighed myself and the scale read 188.7lbs!! → BECOME A PATRON: One day I had an awakening when my brother wouldn’t let me ride in his new car because I couldn’t fasten the seatbelt. I cried so much. I weighed 350 lbs.

See my before and after weight loss pictures, and read amazing weight loss success stories from real women and their best weight loss diet plans and programs. Motivation to lose weight with walking and inspiration from before and after. You may lose 5lbs, you may lose 10lbs, you may lose 20lbs! Perfection is not found in results. Perfection is found in your effort.

Making sure that you do the right things to make progress every single day. That is the only thing you can control when working. Don’t beat yourself up You went overboard at the restaurant last night. Now you’re feeling bloated, guilty, and ready to beat yourself up—while reaching for a pint of ice cream.

Perfection is an age-old myth that creates more pain than joy, more confusion than calm, more angst than creative productivity. Being perfect is a farcical fantasy that distracts us from being present. Constantly driving toward perfection creates a sort of black and white, all or nothing perspective that invariably leaves us colorblind.

Back in 2001 I weighed more than 400 pounds. I tried every diet I could think of to lose weight. I even worked face to face with the late Dr.

Atkins for two months, and after charging me thousands of dollars, the best he could do was yell at me for being so fat. Every diet I tried ended up. Perfection is a terribly misplaced goal and most often compensation for what really troubles us.

In the emerging worldview of a flowing and participatory universe, the construct of perfection.

Her medication was restarted (at a lower dose to produce fewer side effects), and within 6 months Amy was completely well, had lost most of the weight she’d gained, and was trying out for the soccer team at her high school.

  • If she has a nutritionist, because that isn’t the legally protected term and anyone can call themselves a nutritionist, she could just have a really shitty nutritionist.

  • I am in pre-op stages. My surgery is set for February 4th. I am so scared and happy and nervous and excited! I have subscribed to your channel because I love your energy and positivity and advice. Thank u!

  • Thank you for your videoes, they r very helpfull.. I have one big problem that wont go away.. Im allways, even in the morning bloated, like 8/9 months pregnant.. Severely after eating gluten again.. I have continued eating gluten the past 5 months, but still bloated.. Is that normal, i feel sooo awfull when its like this.. Maybe give my digestion a rest, and se if things go back to normal?? Or what to do? Pls i hope you can help me.. Btw i take hcl, enzymes and sometimes bile also.. But still doesent help..

  • I think this video hit home more than the rest. I’m so glad I found your video’s. My surgery is in 4 days. I’m so nervous but you are helping. Thank you

  • How your skin has so much glow. And what you did with the loose skin, did you go under knife? I’m going for my sleeve surgery tomorrow and have butterflies in my stomach ��

  • You are my guardian angel! I know this video is back in 2017 but it helps so much today as am
    a 4 day post opt and ur videos are so motivational and helpful!!! wish u could videos now!

  • Hello everyone.Yesterday was my month. I already lost 40 pounds but 10 days before My surgery I already lost 10 pounds the total pounds is 40. Pounds My weight was 263 pounds

  • 100% about the food and hobbies thing!!! I had NO idea until I became responsible with my food intake how much I used it as entertainment. 
    Now my husband, friends, and I go on hikes, explore new cities, garden, and Im even learning a new language for petes sake. Im doing all of this instead of constantly trying new restaurants, or just cooking for social gatherings. 
    Its wild but I actually feel like Im LIVING my life now. So some real truth here, don’t just use food as entertainment or as a means of socializing, and while you’re at it maybe turn off your TV. You’ll be utterly amazed at how much time you have to really live your life and create amazing experiences when you ditch these two time sucking/wasting habits for entertainment!

  • I’m 5wks post op and I never get on the scale until doc appointments everyone thinks I’m crazy cause I’m not obsessed with the scale. I was 217pre op now I’m 199 not much on weight but damn the inches are shrinking away….

  • all carbs are not created equal. Broccoli has carbs. Leafy greens have carbs. Unless she is going on an all meat and fat diet, she’ll be getting some carbs

  • There is no such thing as a “nutritionist”. It is a made up term. Dietitians are licensed practitioners. Anyone can read a few books and call themselves a “nutritionist”. She is looking for a quick fix, and an excuse at the same time. It is crazy how many people I know like Amy, “know-nothing-know-it-alls”.

  • Kimberely i have moderate Gastritis will the gas that they blow up your stomach with hurt me even more and how am i going to get up and walk when i cant im crippled i cannot walk im using a scooter because i want to have the surgery but i have no life because i cant walk im convinced thats why im not loosing weight and i eat so healthy i do have An auto immune disease too would that be an issue?

  • I love a lot of the things you touched on. These are things I’ve thought about for a long time. Like I have never been at a healthy weight. The last time I was 144lbs….. was when I was 4 years old. I’ve been working on my weight for years n just now taking the steps for bariatric surgery. I’m nervous, but I feel like it’ll finally b that extra tool that I need to finally get healthy. & I’ve been measuring since 2014….. my measurements have yoyoed

  • I’ve begun the process. I will look at your videos as tool to keep myself motivated. I’m sure that for everyone that has done it, it was scary but also an exciting experience to watch your body transform into a healthier version.

  • Thank you for making this video and talking about non-scale victories. I got gastric sleeve two weeks ago and am down 10lbs, and I can’t help but compare myself to all these people who lose twice that much in the same amount of time. But today I tried on a shirt I had a picture of me in from a couple of months ago, and I took another picture, and the difference is already noticeable. I need to stay off the dang scale, but it’s so tempting.

  • Anything that causes a calorie excess causes weight gain. Sugar, fat, protein…it all can. It’s finding whole, healthy foods and balance. It’s not one food is better or worse than another. Some are more nutrient-dense than others, but it isn’t one type of food that causes weight gain.

  • I am only 1 1/2 weeks out and I am blessed to hear this from you. Thank u so much. I am down 28 lbs from march when I started the program. I am 5 lbs from my surgery date. I am in tears listening to you. I have been struggling watching everyone else in my home still eating the same. I foind myself chewing up food and spitting it out. I have issues. Thank you for letting us know we are normal.

  • I don’t think there’s anything inherently wrong with elimination diets. It can be helpful to discover sensitivities and intolerances. But for someone with an unhealthy relationship with food it might be triggering, I think you’re right about that.

  • Detox Tea�� helps with weight loss, cleansing and makes you feel awesome! �� You guys should definitely couple this with your weight loss regimen. Cool website to shop for different detox tea brands…

  • I can only attribute finding you and your channel among the sea of gastric stuff out there just literally days before my gastric sleeve surgery to pure divine intervention. I googled a couple of broad questions and found your videos. And thank heavens for that! You speak my language and I understand your messages in all the reality that they are. The videos I watched pre-op brought me such comfort and peace. I’m just a week on the other side of surgery (yes, new little baby in all of this) and your tips and real advice have been SO helpful. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I’m so glad I have so much to glean from your archives!

  • Love your videos it’s encouraging me to move forward on this journey. My next visit is in April only my third visit it will be with NSD

  • One month out from gastric sleeve, 40 lbs lost and 4 inches off my waist. You speak TRUTH young lady. No longer diabetic 2, Hypertensive, and sleep apnea. ALL GONE!!!

  • Bag of frozen peas=hillbilly ice pack. But you only ever use the one pack, not a different one every time, unless she’s cooking them up after they thaw.

  • Loose skin my arms and theighs have so much loose skin and i only lost 70lbs so far also im more judgemental when it comes to my body i pick the little things that are wrong with me and i never did that before

  • Hi Kim, just thought I’d write to tell you I have looked at probably all of your videos and took notes on everything you said. The picture you see here was me probably 25 years ago. Today I am 310 lbs. and literally feel like crap. I even had to leave my job because I was traveling 80% and covered the eastern half of the country. My back has been so incredibly painful that I can’t even walk outside to the mailbox. When I get back inside I have to immediately sit down. Upon sitting the pain almost instantly disappears. You mentioned seats on an airplane in one of your videos. For me that was not to bad. My weight is mostly in the belly. Most people would think I must drink a case a beer a day when in fact I don’t drink at all. I have an additive nature and I don’t think anyone eats as many cookies, cake and mountains of candy. Mostly the type candy the kids eat such as gummy bears. Gum drops, jelly beans. Mike and Ike my favorite. Normally would eat the whole box.
    Getting back to the pain. Every week I had to fly out and many time I needed to take connecting flights. It never would fail that my plane was at a gate 35 which is the furthest away. Then at the connect I’d have to go from Terminal A to E or F. At Charlotte NC this is a mile and impossible for me to walk that. It killed me to have to hire a wheelchair guy. So after 35 years of this I could not take it anymore. For the last three years I have blamed this on the fact that I must have a Spine problem. I’ve gone to Ortho docs, Neuro Surgeons
    Have had Cat Scan and 3 MRI. Aside from some stenosis there is nothing they see that they feel I need surgery on. And these type docs are not the type of guys to look you in the face and say, Jim, you just too damn fat, get on a diet. I always rationalized that they,re thousands of guys like me and they don’t have this back pain and their fat as hell. I am know convinced that it must be this weight issue. I used to be 5’ 11 but was shocked when I learned I shrunk to 5’9” not to mention the fact that other thinks shrink too. An inch here and there can be terrible LOL. My BMI is 45.8. I have my first appointment with the Bariatric Surgeon on October 20th 2017 and I am hoping he will do this. Honestly I will not take no for an answer. I must do this. I’m concerned and hope it’s not a problem that I have (recti-diastasis) In case you don’t know this is where you get a separation in the abdominal muscle and what happens is that your large intestine will pop out and when laying down and you just lift you head you get this huge lump in your belly that looks scary. I need my life back. I used to have a V shape 25 years ago and now I look like shit. My wife and I are happily married and kids are grown. My wife is same age as me but I look 15 years older. She could pass for in her 40s if she wore makeup and maybe a hairstyle change.
    I think once I start the motivation will be there. As I drop weigh I will always remember the tremendous pain I was in post op. I may not suffer as many downfalls that you did but the sweet tooth deliverance will be my hardest goal as well as Diet Coke. I can drink 6 cans a day right now. I am glad I watched your videos because you’ve empowered me even more with you encouragements and I must saw you are one hot looking size 6 girl. Your husband may get jealous when he sees guys turning there heads to gaze upon you. You’ll have to tell him to grin and bear it cause your loving every minute of the attention. At 360 you didn’t get those looks but now you will. Your simply gorgeous.

    Congratulations Kimberley on your successful journey. I might even set up a video progression like you did. But I don’t like the way I look in pics and movies. Loosing my hair and having a fat chin doesn’t sit well. I’m just not a photogenic guy, theres always a little vanity in all of us. I don’t care about my appearance as much as the improvement in the quality of like. If I was in my late 20 or early 30s like you then of course the appearance factor is meaningful. At 62 your not turning anyone’s head. In thought you are always in your 30s. This is a long response and I apologize but I thought I’d give you the background of my intentions so you can know how grateful I am post op for these suggestions. I will keep in touch. I did subscribe to your channel. My email is [email protected]

  • Unlike you I have really pretty clothes packed up!cant wait to fit back into those clothes again and a sexy nightie for my husband! Mine is emotional eating!

  • This may be in poor taste, but, did you have skin surgery? I am afraid of my face sagging even worse than it does now. I am 46, will be 47 in October just next month. You may be young enough to not need skin surgery on your face. My bff has sagging skin (she had gastric bypass) anyhow, you look good, no sagging jowls and chin.

  • Thank you I just got sleeved on the 30th of May and the struggle is real I’m on the liquid diet and everyone else is eating things I wish I could have but I keep telling myself that I have a new stomach and I have to do this.thank you

  • Good tips…one tip I will add is the mental games you will experience. Meaning your mind sometimes can’t keep up with your weightloss. Still thinking you are larger than what you really are. And taking pictures…lol

  • I’VE BEEN IN THE NURSING FEILD FOR 15. Years but I Am terrified the surgery to come. I just had my salpingectomy less than a month ago, my general surgeon referred me to have the sleeve before removing all three hernias ����‍♀️����‍♀️ I’ve also just completed ✅ the first three mandatory meetings before consultation with the surgeon. Everyone thinks because I’m a nurse I know everything or should about this procedure WRONG lol I am totally apposite, I DO NOT CRAVE FOOD, SWEETS AT ALL!!! Before I got injured in 2005 I was always small I was a gym rat and trainer due to my disability with my leg that limited me 100%������ THEN I HAD MY BLESSING MY ONLY CHILD IN 2006 and my body / metabolism is just shot and I’ve been stuck in this body going on 11 years �� it’s really heart breaking that one injury changed my whole life. SOO, my biggest challenge is making myself eat at least three times a day. It’s SOO hard, I have to educate people that because I’m thick/over weight it’s nothing to do with food it’s my restrictions of exercise ���������� I need my life back. I now have chronic asthma and high bp. Hopefully Dr. eslimi can help. They said eat three times a two snacks sooo hard I’m not hungry I’ve always been this way����‍♀️ on top of being a nurse I work 12-14 hour shifts I literally had to force myself to eat just now.

  • She is carrying a ton of weight in her abdomen which we all know pulls on her back. Anyone can find some back strengthening excercises on the internet. Come on Amy.

  • I have been watching your videos since I had my surgery in April! I am 3 months post op now and down 50lbs! Thank you so much for all the info and how real your advice is! It’s hard at times…. and wasn’t sure if that is how I was suppose to feel! A lot of things have changed along this short journey… but knowing it’s okay and the stages of change is normal!!! Thank you!

  • I’ve been following you ever since my doctor mention LSG to me. I’m having surgery in September and I’m excited but at the same time nervous. Your videos calm me down though. Thank You. HA!

  • Very helpful! I’m having surgery in 50 days, so I’m super excited! I haven’t taken pictures yet, but I intend to.:) Glad to see you’re feeling better!

  • Off topic but have you thought about getting bangs? Maybe side swept bangs that are a little longer? I like your hair and videos and think it would suit you☺️

  • I actually came to this video because I feel like I failed my body today. �� I ate date cookies and Doritoes at 11 pm at night. Actually walked to the store and bought them to eat! HOW do I stop myself from doing this again? I have to, to get over my SIBO, so that I can start keto. ������

  • Some educated Dr’s believe it is not necessary to overly focus on getting optimal health through keto dieting/nutrition but it is more important to occasionally (yearly or so) do really long fasts. That will allow the body to regain its health and become much stronger and adaptable.

  • Not to mention none of this exercise and shit matters anyway when she is still shoveling in 4,000-6,000 calories a day. If she wasn’t she would have lost weight by now. Also a couple of her subscribers live in the same town as her and have seen her at Sonics drive thru many times during every week.

  • Your guest is not anti carnivore or protein. High protein…low carbs…sounds like Dr. Atkins is coming back. Steak and whiskey. Who says diet has to be no fun.

  • Happy to have a smart young woman talking about this-i always want to share this info with the younger folk and you (Siim) have been one of the few doing it hardcore, and now i’ve found a new one with KetogenicGirl. I want to see y’all do more stuff together, TBH.:)

  • Can’t wait til you hit 50K Subs! I still think you’re crazy for jumping into that lake in the middle of the winter like it was nothing lol

  • Vanessa There is so little research on the roll that uric acid plays. example why does uric acid ramp up doing a fast when you are not eating anything? is it stored also in the adipose tissue? also they say that it is a waste byproduct of fructose but if you do not eat carbs where does it come from?

  • God’s Grace? A response to Our Individual efforts to become and be More and Better…than We were. The greater Our effort, the greater the application of God’s Grace.

  • I respect your level of empathy and compassion but you need to grow some balls aswell… Saying stuff like “I don’t deserve this donation” Please stop yourself before I puke all over my screen…

  • “Accept disagreement” up to some broad point where the differences begin to threaten one’s tribe…its stability, its health, its survival…its positive contribution to Human Evolution On Urth.

  • Polarization has its value to Us. But this can be taken too far. We need to learn and apply “Intelligent and Moral Limitations Of Decency” to Our use of “polarization”.

  • Hi hun. I’m a Registered Nutritionist in the UK. In my practice I tend to not focus too much on tracking every single calorie my clients consume or give them strict diets to follow. I do weight check ins and discuss their progress however I rather focus on overall health and support them in optimising it. First thing I would do if Amy was my client though is to send her to therapy. She will never get healthier if she doesn’t address the underlying issues. Hope that helps:)

  • This is a good follow-up to your previous videos and I’m glad I finally got around to finishing it. I had things I needed to work through in my recent past, hence the late post. It is also good to see you have a healthy interaction with the people who watch your videos. Keep up the good work.

  • ughhh i hate it when laymen look up so called “articles” on online newspapers or random unauthorized websites and call it research & think they know something.

    go to a Professional! you lack basic knowledge on human biochemistry and physiology, how do you expect your understanding of nutrition to be correct if you dont have the knowledge to contrast to what you read online!

    on top of that, the only sources you should be reading are authorized scientific papers or studies by reputable publishers, the type you find on pubmed, scopus and sciencedirect.
    the problem with these studies is that they typically handle advanced concepts and terminology without bothering to explain them, because theyre not meant for laymen.

    if you find an article that reads “gluten affects the action of alpha-MSH in the centran melanocortin pathway” (COMPLETELY MADE UP, idk if gluten affects it at all), how can you believe what it says when you probably dont even know what MSH is? also, energy homeostasis from a neuroendocrine pov is ridiculously complex and i doubt anyone who doesn’t a PhD on it can truly grasp it.

    another example is certain diet trends making sense from a biochemical point of view but being undesirable from a physiological or endocrine perspective…

    so yeah. listen to your nutritionist or a specialized doctor. its good to educate oneself but be sensible abt making decisions on things you dont truly understand

  • I think because she’s been putting the emphasis on the “Ah” and not the “lee”, we assumed it was Ollie. I guess in the end it’s trivial but it’s because of the way she pronounces it that we’re confused, and it sounds like she’s trying to play like we’re dumb.

  • I think you’re misunderstanding her intent. She states she wants to do a restart type of diet wherein she cuts things down before adding things back in to her diet. You are definitely wrong. I did this myself, and it completely worked. Many others have used this method to great advantage.

  • Ramadan is starting Friday. Most of us try to reset our diets during this month. Not sure if any of them fast, but it’s a good time to restructure.

  • Shes just smashing all the fads into one… A recipe for disaster, she ain’t proving anyone wrong… She says all the right things, but won’t do them….

  • I’ve been there and the frustration is so common when you bust your ass in a workout and you aren’t losing!! But, it’s 80% diet and until she acknowledges that she will keep disappointing herself over and over and over again. I hope she seeks help through the proper channels.

  • I’ve done Amy’s new diet before no dairy, no sugar, no carbs. I lost a shit-ton of weight to start with, then my weight stalled because I was STILL eating too many calories so I flipped out and binged HARD, gained all the weight back plus some. Now I’m doing what I should have before counting calories and eating more balanced (which includes carbs!).

  • I think I know what is going on with her…it’s desperation. It is becoming an “all or nothing” mentality. She is thinking in extremes. Look at her workouts and her diet. If someone is strong and committed to change, then they can flip things around. It is really hard! I think she really needs to work more with a therapist.

  • For someone her size she doesn’t need to be doing these workouts that could potentially cause an injury. Just eat well & go for short walks, than once shesdown 100 pounds then increase ur exercise! These ladies really over complicate things!!

  • I’m glad you & Rose do reactions on Amy. I don’t know why many of the reaction channels will not touch her. Maybe the kids? She is the one that puts her kids on YouTube. She said recently, that her kids will be in her videos again. If you think of all the things Amy has done, like getting medicine from Mexico, to help her get pregnant at almost 500lbs. Can you imagine if Amberlynn or Chantel did something like that how much negativity they would get! Amy has done some terrible things, and I don’t understand why the reaction channels don’t hold her more accountable. Amy has more excuses and lies then anyone else I’ve seen on YT. She should not be doing the exercises that are irritating her back. She should just start walking outside.

  • I mean, she can work out all she wants but that’s not gonna make her lose weight and that’s shown. She’s still only losing and gaining the same 1 lb.

  • WIth your dietician, how many days do you have to record for your mettings with him/her? I only meeting with mine every few months and she has me only record three days. I am just wondering what is typical. Thanks!:o)

  • I don’t know if it’s your camera being further away. But you’re looking a bit smaller. Kudos. But either way, you’re always looking adorable:)

  • I don’t like looking at pictures of me. When I do I’m like what happened and how. But I look at them and look forward to seeing the change to a hopefully healthier me.

  • Dude, she gave Mohammed Ali as en example but she didn’t even say it right! It’s pronounced “o-lee”, is it not? And she says “olly”. So what is she correcting us for, when even she doesn’t say it right ��

  • Your are such a wonderful person and I love all of your videos ‼️ I’ll be having surgery this October/November. I’m on my last dietitian apt in September and all the rest is done. One thing tho and I will take your advice (but) lol right now I just can’t stand looking at myself/body in the mirror. I look and feel so fat. This past weekend I was at the beach and when I came in to take a shower after the day, I just happened to really look at myself in the mirror. When I turned and look at my dimpled, cellulite big butt and stomach, it just made me sick. I can’t stand looking at myself and it’s been so hard to even let my husband look at me. You know. I am trying to love myself in all aspects (but) I hate saying “but” ��, I just am not able to right now. Did you feel like that too? Thank you for everything ������

  • I found it much more easy to cut out sugar and carbs than to do like a halfway. But I think it depends on the person. Maybe it will work for her. But cutting sugar out of my life was one of the hardest things I ever did. I actually had withdrawal symptoms like night sweats, Shakes, and mood swings.

  • She’ll take a day off from walking and working out so that doesn’t hurt her but taking a day off from going out during a global pandemic because Corona virus might hurt her isn’t a concern.

  • I have to say overhauling my lifestyle and dropping to the very low carb count my doctor advised was hard but I am 6 weeks in and just crossed losing 25lbs. So it can be done, but it take a heck of a lot of determination. I don’t know that Amy has that.

  • She should continue walking every single day. There are no breaks from walking, nothing is improved by avoiding it. She needs a schedule for workouts, menu planning, and meal prep. She should not be snacking at all. I don’t get a vibe of seriousness nor gravitas from her. She’s not being nice to herself by slacking.

  • Great video once again. I do keto…but the rest of my family does not. I am always cooking from scratch for my 2 teenagers so I do envy the freedom you experience from fasting ie…not cooking or shopping for food. Do you have any tips for me?

  • It’s so interesting what you said any sizes. It took me so long to believe that I really am as small as I am. I always went for bigger sizes and then was shocked time and time again when it was way too big on me.

  • “Amy has amitted she doesn’t understand numbers or grams”.. I really don’t want to be rude here, but I feel the need to express something in writing, find it rude racist or what not…Her husband is a joke. A prototype of a southern Mediterranian hustler..Lies when it suits him, cheats everytime he can. And he surely hasn’t got a clue about how to battle obesity as he is most likely illitarate and uneducated like his wife, or beyound his wife if that is possible.

    If somebody wants to challenge me on my ‘racists’ opinions I welcome a debate about cultural and societal differences effecting individual behaviour. It’s reality here in Europe.

  • Gosh I really did feel like I “wasn’t good enough” for so long, thanks for this video. Gaining weight was an incredibly humbling experience, I’m glad you shared your recovery from HA so much. Also your hair looks so luscious!

  • around January she was speaking about weight loss surgery which for her would be a good plan! and is she even seeing a nutritionist anymore? i mean, they would never prescribe meal replacement shakes. And what happened to the counsellor? Great commentary Cherry! when are you weighing in?

  • Just wanna say I love your videos CherryBerry! I had a difficult relationship with food from childhood and wasn’t happy with how I was treating my body. I got therapy and started exercising as stress relief and most importantly started loving myself in the present. I can now jog 1k in 6 minutes, I’m down to 212lbs and I’ve never been more confident. Still a way to go but I feel so much better!

  • “Nothing is really working”… Amy, if you lost a 10 % of your current weight it would help a lot with your pain..

    Amy’s like a 500 lbs? She would lose 5 10 lbs a week just by eating 2500 3000 kilocalories a day.. And that’s a fair amount of food. It’s about time she gets this basic level understanding of energy laws under her hijab.

    Her crying video about not been able to walk with her family was weird. At first, I felt sorry for her but I felt something was a bit off.. Then I realized she knew already she couldn’t do it. She’s told she can’t even stand up doing kitchen chores.. So, it was a pre-planned, manipulative, stupid attempt to gain sympathy. Crocodile tears or true tears? Who knows..maybe true tears bc it must be awful to be almost immobile due to her weight. A prison of her own creation. Self pity, but not real sorrow for missing out of family activity. (IMO I think she doesn’t even understand the concept of family activity let alone child education, another topic I observe in her behaviour.)

    And BTW, she had Oli to film her wabbling…Ollie-Ali should have been walking with the kids at that moment, but no, he was filming Amy. I bet no-one in that family exept Amy walked that day.. And to be totally blunt, honest and truthful, kids don’t enjoy strolling on a pavements. They RUN whenever they can to a DESTINATION. Be it a park or an icecream van.

    Exercising in the gym or taking walks outside is not essential for any of the members of super morbidly obese orchestra. To preserve, or to gain to be more precise, functions and mobility required for everyday life is more important. For Amy, it means being able to stand while cooking, doing the laundry and cleaning. It basically means to lift that butt off of the chair as often as average people do. And to think of it, the same instruction is good for AmberXL and Chanty too. Not to mention our wheelchair-fixated, totally-able-to-walk Jennifer Gwen Ann, The Liar Gigantus. As long as they ate like an average ‘fattie’ they’d loose the 5 10 lbs a week I mentioned before.

    And you should not compare yourself with these ladies. Your BMI’s are totally different.

    PS: Her explanation about proper pronouciation of Ali is just rediculous. I’ve studied basics of Arabic. Most A’s are pronounced closer to Ä’s like hat, bat, twat…for us westeners anyway. Ali is no exeption. IT’s not open like Ollie.. Is there something wrong with her hearing?

  • Idk I won’t support Amys lie journey what so ever. She is abusive, scamming, lying, manipulative, narcissistic, vile human being. I just can’t with her. I also don’t believe she will ever lose weight. She isn’t serious. If she was she would have lost weight already. Idk people can not like my opinion. Also most insurance companies won’t pay for anything until you try physical therapy first.

  • May I ask why did you choose the Lose it app vs MyFitnessPal. I currently us MyFitnessPal but if there is something better I’m willing to try ��

  • How has she managed to go to the doctors more times in the last three weeks, in the middle of a pandemic, than most people go in five years?

  • there’s no way she will do this even for a week. Next video will be Amy talking about how she couldn’t do it bc it was just too drastic

  • I have been trying to get my period back for a year (haven’t had it in 2 years). I have HA from anorexia. I am too scared to completely cut exercise I work out only 4 times a week and I drink a smoothie after I workout to make sure I don’t go to a calorie deficit

  • Yeah she shit out her last sonic meal. That’s why she was done 2 lbs. also I don’t think she was at Walmart there. I think she wAs sonic.

    She is gonna end up hurting herself anyways. She always ends up with a mysterious injury anyway which is just a set up for her weight gain. But we all know it’s gonna happen

  • I think it’s funny how she thinks that she’s automatically saying her husband’s name correctly just because he’s her husband!! ��������

    My moms name is Cheryl but my dad has ALWAYS pronounced her name wrong, he calls her Sure-rull ����‍♀️����‍♀️

    My mother gave up correcting him after 2 weeks of dating & they’ve been married 39 years!! ������

  • What a precious little princess. Lovely, altruistic, kind-hearted, “real”, sincere and pure of heart. The planet is blossoming into paradise once again as people transform into what Nature intended and becoming the best versions of themselves to cross-motivate each other. Hope springs eternal.

  • I did almost no carb (less than 20 a day) for two years. Transitioned off it and ate “normally” (truly) for another 2 years. Even had a tummy tuck for loose skin (lost 120lbs), ran 8-10km DAILY, but then a very VERY bad bout of depression hit me and I gained it all back because my eating disorder came out in full force as a way of coping. FEELS. BAD. I guess I consider myself lucky to be alive after that depressive episode, because God knows there were times I didn’t want to be, but man it hurts thinking about how badly I screwed up what I worked so hard for.

    As an aside, I have tried many times, with many therapists to work on my ED, but they always focus on depression, trauma, whatever else. I’ve yet to find a professional who takes it seriously, and I have had numerous ones (really good ones, too) for years at a time. It’s such a misunderstood and painful condition to have, honestly. People so often think it’s willpower…but when you have an ED and you’re having a bad day and end up with McDonalds it’s easy for people to say “just don’t go get it, then” yeah, I could…but it would make my day even worse. Your world can revolve around food as coping with this disorder. It’s not as simple as “just don’t eat so much”, as you know!

    Sorry for the essay, but I felt the need to share lol

  • Paused at the beginning…you look different. Granted that I haven’t been a sub too long but somehow you look different and I’m not sure why. Anyways, you look pretty but then again you always do.

  • Her “workouts” have been on a steady decline from day one. She went from twice a day, walking, to once a day to every second day, to days off.
    Does it really matter until she stops eating 4000+ calories a day it won’t really matter.

  • I think the hardest part for her is having kids who eat like crap and then trying to force herself not to eat the same foods. I agree, she shouldn’t buy the crap (bc then the whole family is eating better) but my guess is she buys it bc it’s easy to make for the kids and then she ends up eating it herself.

  • re: intuitive eating at my level of body fat, i’ve learned to not listen to the ghrelin signals of hunger…it’s not telling me much…i think once i get into maintenance, this will become a good way to eat?

  • im in a really bad spot in menopause since 2013 before i was 350 and lost 100 in a year walking eating healthy now my hormones are messed up no sleep apnea, emotional drs cant help me and now my weight went to 285 and cannot loose it was juicing, eating organic proteins and now im 3 years bone on bone omg the pain i cant walk anymore in a scooter and my primary Dr said i hate to say this Robin but… because your not eating bad food i hate fast food, fried food soda all i like is decaf and water, i was doing the plant bases high vegan protein powder omg i have not lost anything and now i feel pushed against the wall honestly did not want surgery the sleeve i love your video;s but i have no more quality i cant walk anymore and if i dontget my BMI down she said your quality of life is going to the craps you really need you h ave all positive reasons to do this Robin you already heardly eat you eat healthy my only uses are due to being wide awake i eat healthy snacks but im not hungry all day so and i dont have time to loose weight fast enough i have hobbies im a known beaded tapestry artist and do diamond painting at night but i need a good surgeon in south Florida….. im scared

  • She said something very telling: “I’m going to have to accept that this is my new life”. In other words she’d rather keep eating herself to death if she could.

  • Actually, the average person in the US walks around 5,000 steps, which would equate to about 40-45 minutes. It’s recommended to walk at least 8,000 steps a day though, which would be closer to an hour.

  • Shes still eating way too many calories and if she ate3times a day and less just losing2-3lbs per week in less than3yrs she could reach her goal.
