Valerie Bertinelli has long been open about how she internalizes her weight and the effects it has on her mental health.

“I haven’t gotten on a scale since I finished writing the book,” Bertinelli stated during the interview. “I’m searching at the display and attempting not to decide myself  

too harshly proper now because I recognize that I’m still holding onto this weight as it’s protective me due to the fact I’m going thru a lot of challenges, quite a few heartbreaks

“When I get more healthy internally and emotionally…the weight will come off, due to the fact I know I’m treating my body better, I’m drinking much less alcohol,  

I’m eating much less sugar, I’m getting extra veggies into my frame, however, my body is doing this for a reason…because it wishes protection.”
