She said that while everyone was focused on her changed appearance, she was caught up in how it made her feel about herself.
‘And the truth is I was so f***ing happy and I felt amazing,’ she told Extra.
‘I did it for me. I did it because I wanted to live. What I saw in the mirror… I wanted the body to match the mind, because I spent so much time working on my mind and then I spent a year working on my body and now it’s about the soul… did the mind, the body, now the soul.’

She said she was ‘not proud’ about what had happened but said she wanted to be ‘honest’ with fans.
The TV personality went sober in 2017 and previously admitted that she never thought she would be alive at 35 after passing out every night from drugs and partying at the height of her battle.
In 2020, Kelly spoke about her past battle and said that she used to take so many drugs she ’embalmed’ her body every night.
‘I was in a haze of hangovers and withdrawals. I don’t know how I did it for as long as I did,’ she shared.
The former wild child revealed she regularly took a cocktail of amphetamines, tranquilizers and marijuana at the height of her battle.
The star told her friend DJ Fat Tony on his podcast, The Recovery: ‘A lot of my friends didn’t make it and burying them was hard. I had survivor’s guilt for a long time.’
