Hollywood actress Valerie Bertinelli successfully maintains her new shape after a 20-kilograms weight loss.
Valerie made a bet on a healthy diet, an active lifestyle and a reasonable, not a fanatical approach to eating.
56-year-old Bertinelli after her incredible weight loss looks great, but it was not easy – it was hard work and sometimes she came to tears in an attempt to restrain herself from eating.
The actress perceived indulgences in food as a disability or a bad habit from which she should have given up. Her consultant strongly frightened her at the beginning, and the actress is still afraid of food. Thought, now she understands everything and she’s very grateful to her coach.
In Valerie’s life there were drug abuse as well as alcohol addiction that the actress had to overcome. Still, the most interesting thing according to the actress was that giving up cocaine was much easier than reject occasional slice of pizza. Drugs and medicines sow chaos in our bodies, it is not necessary to use them.
Valerie thinks that overeating captured her because of low self-esteem. The same situation was with drugs.
She thought it would help her, but every time she looked at herself in the mirror, she felt much worse, so that she began to hate herself. That’s when Valerie realized that she needed to take some actions. Now she feels just fine, she doesn’t well up with tears when she looks at her reflection. What is more, she feels fine, even on the beach in a bikini, though she’s already 56. She’s so glad of her transformation, that she became a new person.
Valerie became famous for her role as Barbara Cooper in the comedy series One Day at a Time that was on the screen from 1975 to 1984. She revived her career after she lost the extra 20 kilograms in 2009, when she joined a television show about diet (Jenny Craig show).
The same year, Valerie appeared on the cover of the printed edition of People wearing bikini that she wore when she was 30. She thought it was impossible. She was afraid, but then she thought it was just a swimsuit.
