Reunited with her birth mother, her birth mother died suddenly soon after. Using food both as a comfort, and as a punishment, and as a security blanket (thinking that if she became fat then she wouldn’t be a target for sexual abuse and harassment.) Non-existent self-esteem, totally f***ed up ideas about beauty, fitness and health that she doesn’t even get halfway through processing with her therapist during the course of the memoir.
So yeah, it’s easy to sit behind a computer screen and made snarky fat jokes.
She needs to take responsibility for herself in getting better/working out her issues. And now back to your regularly scheduled programme…
She has more $$ and resources available to her than many do. For example, when we go out I have a steak with chips and salad, I put half the chips on Mr R’s plate. Thanks Rosie so you did it the ‘normal’ way just cut out the crappy stuff and the sugared stuff. I don’t usually go for chips but I suppose they are always good especially the smell.
Her personal history as she relates it kind of explains basically everything. Being sexually abused by a teacher for two years who would ridicule her in public and prey on her in private.
Being raped as a teenager and told by the guy she was his least impressive conquest.
I am no expert but I’m sure it can affect people in different ways.
So I would not be so quick to judge AJ on how it affected her.
It seems to me that she has had issues in her life and has struggled.
Not excusing her behavior with centrelink of course not but the public might not know the whole story. I lived with a pedo step father and cruel, narcissistic mother.
I have read a bit about her unpleasant past but these outbursts arent helping. I noticed Margie Cummins doesnt have nice things to say about Bridges either or TBL, which is weird because she’s flogging ‘her’ diet plan in an ebook which she admitted she just took from TBL? The reason many of us just plain don’t trust Ajay, is that she lost a lost of weight, then wrote a book about it. Now if I had been someone who had paid her money via that website, I’d be feeling pretty ripped off right now.
She then set up a website – at the same time she had the Biggest Loser gig (and was defrauding Centrelink while she was at it) where she charged desperate fat people for her advice on how to lose weight the way she did. But no, I lost my 44 kilos the old fashioned way, and it has stayed of for a few years now. @Pippy, fat people aren’t a protected species for God’s sake!
