Well, after being hospitalized, Stacy started to eat again and unfortunately, eat she did! She dove into binge eating and within one year, ballooned to 180 pounds.  Stacy's new book, The Truth About Style, outlines her emotional and physical struggles with her own body with the hope to help others dealing with their own body image issues.

"When you can talk about something and shine light on it, you're obliterating shame. And that to me was always the really hard part – to feel so filled with shame and having no recourse to thinking it could get better." 

Thankfully, she realizes her value in life "doesn't simply come from [being thin.] Instead, she says "it comes from me and solely from me." Her new book will be released next Tuesday.
