First, it was Jenny Craig that was supposed to be the saving grace.
That diet did not work out for her.
Was it really a surprise given the statistics?
It really wasn’t her fault as she had many resources that any human could possibly want and a great financial reward.
After she gained it back Kirstie sought to fight her public weight loss again on her own reality show and started show some progress.
After the show? She sort of disappeared from the TV airwaves.
It wasn’t until recently when she showed up in the public. She did not appear to be the happiest person- as I know that feeling when you try and hide in shame. The one thing that I have learned in the last two or three years making this film is that Kirstie should not be embarrassed or ashamed as she did not fail at dieting. The dieting failed her.
It just tears me apart emotionally that we all blame ourselves and try and hide away as if we are social outcasts.
It is going to take some time and there is no quick fix. It is possible though. So Kirstie, please come back in the public eye and be proud. I would much rather see you work on yourself for awhile then just drop fifty pounds in a month for Jenny.
