"As I arrived through the gate, there's this $23 million mansion ... I mean even the diva was shocked," she says about herself.
"I met Dr. Phil and I'm not saying that he looks fat on TV," Judith continues, "but he's much slimmer and you know how they say... 'fine.' Looking for words to describe Dr. Phil, she says, "He's boink!"
She privately tells the video camera:
"I've never been two weeks without eating fast food. I do want to binge, but just the few pounds that I've lost have really changed my attitude."
"I'll tell you one thing," she says. "I'm coming home with a little backbone. I'm taking control of my life for the first time in my life."
"I'm not going to put up with the 'beep-beep wide-load' stuff anymore," she tells him, referring to his comments about her weight.
"Well, I'm not going to do it anymore," he says sheepishly.
Monika nods and says, "Or it's going to be hazardous to your health."
"Charlie wants me to get well, he wants me to get better, but it upsets him that he's not the one to make me get better. He wasn't the medicine that I needed. Now that I've come home things need to be changing."
She pulls the waist of her pants to show her husband how much weight she has already lost. "Look at that," she says. "They fit me when I left."
On their way home, Leslie shares some of the knowledge she gained about her body and her health. "There are reasons why I'm tired all the time," she says. "I'm anemic. But it's so cool. This is not a diet. This is total health."
"That was a shocker," she says.
Later she tells the video camera, "I'm really getting to know a lot about myself. I'm really excited about getting
started on the program."
"Instead of eating fast food, I'm going to cook. I got inspired and after work I went over to the grocery store and I picked up a bunch of groceries," he says while stocking his refrigerator and cabinets with healthy grains, fruits and vegetables.
"I learned a lot of things. ... better ways to eat... to change your way of thinking," she says. "No more Bon Bons for me, that's right," AnnMarie continues. "There's no turning back."
"I had my first real craving and I dealt with it," she says. "I'm starting to listen to my body."
She continues, "I made apple chutney for our dinner. I made it without sugar and it was great."
Later he tells the video camera: "Because of the way I'm eating now, I feel like I've got newfound power and pride and respect."
As for the name change, he says, "It immediately had an impact." Dr. Phil supports his return to his original name, particularly because "Donnie was always known as the pudgy, fat kid."
