I will never forget the day Karen Carpenter of “The Carpenters” Grammy-winning band, died of anorexia! She was only 32 years old, 1 month shy of turning 33! I was listening to the radio when I heard the horrible news.
I had been an anorexic for several years; because that was the only “control” I had over my life as a teen and young adult living in L.A. My dear mother, maternal grandmother and grandfather were quite obese. I did not want to be that way. My mom used to stuff her emotions down with food, anytime she was stressed, anxious or unhappy. There was a lot going on in our lives during my teen and young adult years; and I thought the only “control” I had over my life was starving myself and being as skinny as I could be!
I used to go to bed starving; and would have horrible nightmares! Apparently, my subconscious mind was communicating with me, but I ignored it! Until ……
The day I heard on the radio Karen Carpenter died of heart failure due to a long struggle with anorexia, on February 4, 1983! It was a big wakeup call for me, and it scared me to death! She was so young and talented! It was then that I realized starvation was not the way to stay slim. I knew then that I needed to eat healthfully throughout the day to keep my body from shutting down. I also wanted to be healthy, get married and have children.
There was also the famous “Twiggy” who was a super skinny model! So many of we teen and young-adult girls wanted to be skinny like Twiggy! She was 5’6” and weighed only 91 pounds in 1966!
Several years later, I realized that eating small nutritious meals and snacks about every 3 to 3-1/2 hours throughout the day, eating 5-6 times a day; and drinking lots of water before and after every meal and snack, would keep my weight down where I felt and looked slim and healthy. I also incorporated exercise into my daily routine.
As I continued educating myself on health and wellness, I created a comprehensive journal, “The Ultimate Vital Weight Release Management System”, and 12 corresponding hypnosis MP3s to guide, empower and inspire others to live leaner, firmer, healthier, happier lives!

I encourage everyone who has an eating disorder to seek professional psychological help so you can live a healthier, happier, more wonderful, fulfilling life!
