Not too shabby (music starts) Okay, so, today marks
the first day of one of my personal training
sessions. This is what my body
looks like. Bam boom! This is a lot harder
than it looks. Ta-da! Sitting down on the
toilet was the hardest thing I’ve ever
had to do. My muscles are
killing me. So I guess it’s time
I finally addressed the elephant
in the room. Yes, I have lost
a bit of weight. I honestly was never
gonna address it. But as the months went on,
and the more videos I posted, the more the comments
seemed to focus on one subject. Now the big question
I always get asked now is, ‘So how exactly did
you do it, Elle?’ And in a perfect world, I would
be making a video giving you advice on
how you should lose weight. But instead, this is the video
explaining why I won’t. I’m just, like,
starting to think, ‘Am I doing this for
the right reasons?’ (music stops) Well, we’ll find out.
I don’t know. Cool. Hi, I’m Elle Mills! And today I’m here
with Kati Morton. So Kati is a
licensed therapist. That is correct, right? – Yes, that is correct!
– Cool! And, what are you, uh, like,
is it specializing? – Yeah you’re so good! Look at you!
– Thank you, I know! I specialize, actually, in
eating disorders and self-injury. I’ll just tell you but
I might not even put this in. I’ve been dealing with
a lot of body image issues. So I’ve been doing a lot
of weight loss stuff. And I think it got to
an unhealthy point. (music starts)
I’ve been really trying
hard to film. But it’s really hard, because I can’t even
look at myself in the mirror. To the point where, like, I just didn’t eat
for two to three weeks. And then I would
eat a bit and then go another
2-3 weeks not eating. Then I would binge,
and then I would hate myself. – And I’d be like, okay..
– And then the cycle starts over. – It’s been a constant cycle
for a few months now. – It’s probably a sign of your burnout. – Okay gotcha. – And it’s a coping skill.
– Yeah. – I bet you, when you’re,
it’s like, drinking, or spending,
or eating. And I bet you toggle
between them. If you were my patient,
I would say I want you to track back. So the last time you had
struggles with eating, do you remember
what was going on or how you were
feeling? And when you see
the pattern, then we have to come up
with some healthy coping skills. So that could be:
calling a friend, going for a walk.
And then figure out which ones of those work best.
– Yeah – And doing those more. It’s just a coping skill,
in any way, other things that we do in our life are.
– Yeah – So it’s usually just a sign
of something else. Uh oh, it’s a webcam shot! She must be getting serious! So this whole weight loss
thing is something I’ve been avoiding
for a while now. I know it was very evident
that I was losing a lot of weight very fast. But I refused to
address it because I didn’t want to lie about
how I was doing it. But I also didn’t want to show
unhealthy weight methods to an impressionable
audience. I had to learn
the hard way that what I did was
extremely damaging both physically and mentally. And getting out of
these habits was even
harder to do. And to this day,
I’m still working on it. So if there’s one thing
you take from all this, just know that
there are no shortcuts to a healthy lifestyle. And if you are hoping
to find body image advice or healthy eating and
fitness tips in this video, there are so many
sources online that are way more
qualified than I’ll ever be. But what I can do is be here to root you on
from the sidelines. As cheesy as
that sounds. (music stops) I am fully stopping
the flow of this video because I don’t feel
like I have driven in the message enough. I think the video so
far is heavily focused on flow
and storytelling when I think I need
to sit anyone down. (sigh) When I think I need
to sit anyone who is, has
ever experienced what I had gone through
or is experiencing it or having bad thoughts
about themselves, I feel like the video
so far has just been me brushing over a subject
that I’ve been avoiding getting in to
for a long time because I find it
very hard to face. And I think if I’m
gonna address it I have to address
it face on, and just
be totally real. Like I said, this is something
I’m still working on. My weight fluctuates
an insane amount because of what
I’ve done to my body. It’s not healthy.
Like I said, I don’t want to
lie about it. But I really don’t
want anyone to do what I did. There aren’t really
any answers in this video because I’m still
working on it. I’m getting better. I’m definitely..
I’m at a healthier weight. I’m eating.
And the first step I took to get better
was I told someone what I was doing.
And then I told another person and
another person. And those people, you know,
made sure that I got help. So if you are struggling
with body image issues, eating issues, please
reach out to someone. Tell anyone.
Just a friend, your parents, a professional. It’s important to
get out because it’s a very
serious problem. So please,
please, please reach out to someone
you trust and support. And don’t go
through it alone. Now spoiler alert.
The next part of this video is my brother and I
getting me new clothes. I really don’t want it
to come across as I use this shortcut
and it worked and I look great now. I want this last
part of this video to come across as me
being comfortable with my healthier weight, and being more
comfortable in my body. And I’m feeling
a lot better from where I was
a few months ago in terms of eating
and my weight. So, please take this
next part of the video as me finally becoming
comfortable in my own skin. Okay, let’s continue
on with the video. (‘Play that Funky Music’
by Wild Cherry) Well, yeah, we have
a lot of f*cking work to do. Hey Jay! (Jay, what’s next?) (- H&M, probably.) (- Look who has
come to join us?) – And we’re spending
money baby! Not my money!
(Elle laughs) (- Alright boys. Let’s
hurry up!) (Pick up the pace!) (Why do I feel like
I’ve heard that before?) (Uhh I hate you
so much) (Yes!)
– Yes! (laughs) (Thank you so much!)
– You’re welcome! Take care! (muffled) (sigh) Jay is exhausted. Only Jay can make this,
and turn it into this. (Play that funky

And in this video, I mentioned that there are
plenty of online sources that could help you in
living a healthier lifestyle. I didn’t want to
leave you guys completely empty-handed. So I worked some magic and teamed up
with an app that I think would be
an amazing resource for you guys. LifeSum is a nutrition
focused app that helps you keep
track of your health. You can log in
your meals, water intake,
and exercise. And what I think is
super helpful is that they provide some great
eating plans for you. I personally find using
this app has helped me ensure that I’m eating a
healthy amount of nutritious food
everyday. The app really helps
me understand what food is good
and bad for me. And I try to get a good
balance of carbs, protein and fat in
my meals by looking in
the detail section. It’s a really easy
way to ensure you’re on track for
your health goals. So if you’re interested,
be sure to click the first link in the
description to try it out! Thank you guys
so much, and I’ll see you guys
in the next video. Bye!

100 thoughts on “My Weight Loss

  1. I ligit can’t lose weight through an eating disorder, I’m just so obsessed with food that it’s so freaking unhealthy, I want help but like…I think I should get help in the future since right now I’m just a kid @[email protected]

  2. Nobody listens to me tbh and I don't think I'm changing in a healthy way cause ”youre just a drama queen” is what I constantly get to hear and that no one could help me but myself so why do I have to keep mentioning that I need a little boost or kick start cause I'm really far from being ready to do it on my own coping with all the negatives and bullying ugh I'm out of words now but hey! THANK YOU though.. at least you showed what I can't reveal myself.

  3. You is strong.
    You is smart.
    You is beautiful.
    Don’t let anyone tell you differently💕🤗🤗
    Much love for you girl💕

  4. im glad that u actually used this social platform to bring awareness to these kind of disorders. seeing that clip of u struggling and those clips of exercise and such brought me back some flashbacks of when i went through this. anorexia took over a good five months of my life to bring me to an end where it was nearly too late. at first i found it satisfying to see the numbers drop so quickly on the scale and see that clothes were growing baggy on me, but later finding how torturing it was to focus on nothing else but food and harm relationships with people i love. this topic is not so easy to speak about especially when it affected u so much but u did just enough to address the situation in a way that opens people’s eyes of these kinds of disorders. to this day i cry just by trying to speak about my story. u did a good thing and trust the process. i find it so hard sometimes to love myself but im getting better now (I think). ur not alone and niether am i, elle <3

  5. In no way am i making light of the subject matter of this video but this production quality and editing 👀👀👀😍

  6. Oh your that one girl who lost her v card with Zane hijazi or something like that idk how to spell his last name

  7. I love that you are still “you”. So many people put so much effort into changing “who they are” when losing weight because being overweight has become who they are.
    Maybe i’m wrong. I believe all the things i believe.

  8. You are such a beautiful person I love how raw it is I’m literally are in tears. How amazing it is to see you staying the facts and trying to be as open as you are love you!!!

  9. Elle is so beautiful, and the fact that she wants to save others from being unhealthy makes her even more gorgeous!!! 💘💘💘

  10. I have tested out every single fat loss manual and also this weight loss plan “Yamzoko Weebly” (Google it) is the one that works for me coupled with their items to burn up fat. I don’t really feel jittery or maybe feel a crash, I am also not as hungry as I used to. Since applying the strategies described in this plan, I lost 15 lbs already. .

  11. I lost respect for this girl right after she put the lifesum ad in. U trying to get people out of eating disorder and then straight after promo unhealthy calorie count obsession?

  12. You aren’t alone I actually done the same. I would eat then cry about it and binge eat one day. Skip meals for days. And I’m still experiencing it.

  13. Okay so i pressed on this video and the first thing I saw was McDonald’s ad what this video is literally about weight loss bitch what the fuck

  14. AMAZING! so inspiring! you rock girl dont worry you look incredible at any shape!! the video is really awesome haha i hope i can make such great quality and fun videos like that someday

  15. i relate to this sooooo much. ive been dieting for a year and i developed an ugly eating disorder and its been so tough to get out of it.

  16. The first video ever I watch from her and I just wanna say one thing:
    My eyes are itching, I wanna cry, I think I fell in love.. wtf so random, how.
    Literally.

  17. Even though my story isn’t an eating disorder or anything I lost a lot of weight too and everyone around me would point it out I never even knew after having my daughter I weighed 180 and I’m 5’3 so it was a lot, & one day I was at work and it felt like ants where just all over me and my face turned red I couldn’t focus on anything so I went to the ER and turns out I’m type 1 diabetic and my body was eating itself to stay alive I was very close to death. I went from 178 to 130 in a month and now my weight is up and down bc it’s hard to get it at a steady rate after something like that happens. But I get comments like you must’ve done drugs although I’ve never even touched anything like that in my life.

  18. It would have been better if I found out this kind of “Yamzoko Weebly” (Google it) a few years back. For 3 weeks of pursuing the plans, I dropped TWELVE lbs Needless to say I work out more than once weekly, and also eat right. The results shown to me is astounding. Certainly, this plan is highly recommended and I do hope this would deliver the results to you too mainly because it did to me. .

  19. I am currently 14 years old. I was 130 pounds and I lost 10 pounds, so now I weigh 119. I’m still trying my hardest to lose weight. And this story is 1,000% true. I’m not asking for any likes. I just want to share my story with people.

  20. Wow thanks for the video . Really struggle with the same issues . Personally I Binge eat and then begin STARVING myself so yeah….But I’m working on it and it’s a day by day . Your amazing keep up the great work !

  21. I had eating disorders in 2016 when I was using lifesum actually.. I was eating under 500 calories just so I could lose weight fast and have a skinny body until one day I experienced a sharp pain in my belly after coming back from school..eventually my parents found out that i had been skipping meals and had been abnormally losing weight. I'd rather suggest not to use lifesum honestly cause I'm living better without it now…when I was using it I was more focused on eating less for the sake of lower calorie intake and losing weight fast so I could have the "body" of kpop idols.

  22. Ironically I used Lifesum to ruin myself. Nothing was more exhilarating than seeing the "you need to eat more" warning at the end of the day. But in general, if you aren't that mentally low I'd say it's good.

  23. Thanks for the video, I absolutely loved it!
    As for me, I've tried many programs but most of them were not really efficient…until I found out about this program:
    @t
    It really worked out for me, I hope it will also for those who really want to lose those extra kilos!

  24. well i told my best friend but spoiler alert he dont believe me of course he dont no one ever believes me cause i was once a really skinny girl n now im binge eating to a point i cant control it

  25. I'm in so much denial right now that I'm suffering from eating disorder due to depression and it's been a year. I came here from time to time to remind myself that things will get better. Elle Mills 💙

  26. I think you look beautiful just the way you are and no matter how you look I love your show I wish I look like you and be like you

  27. Of all people Elle is the last person in this Earth that should feel that way about themselves .. I literally started to cry 😭😭💚💚

  28. Ahhhh I love this!!! ❤️ I’m a new fan but have binged probably almost all your videos. You’re super cute & I love your confidence! You look great!

  29. Elle, I may be coming from the future, and I only just addressed this video. I’m gonna be honest, it made me cry. It made me feel so many emotions. I’m so happy when you are happy, and it makes me sad to see you sad and not loving yourself. You are so fucking beautiful in every way. Your personality, your beautiful freaking face and I could name so much more unique things about you. Never worry about how you look if it makes you uncomfortable. From the future, we love you Elle. — All of us!
