Transcript for Tory Johnson's 'Shift for Good' to Say Goodbye to Negativity and Find Happiness
Hanging out with my friend, Amy, both fellow thrivers and we'll talk about our other friend, Tory Johnson with a new book out, "Shift for good." Simple changes for lasting joy inside and out. It's a sequel to her best-seller "The shift" about her impressive weight loss and how she did it. The book inspired many people to do the same including one young woman who got a shift surprise. 20-year-old kaolin blonstein hit a major milestone. I'm down 71 pounds. Studying journalism at quinnipiac university inspired to lose weight last summer after Reading "Shift for good," a "New York times" best-seller written by Tory Jones. Here with bargains up to 77% off. I understood how she struggled her whole life and was overweight and how she felt self-conscious in her job. She kept a blog and took no shortcut posting pictures of her progress. I have a fitbit and use it to track my food, my water. To keep me on top of things. When I first started, my jeans were super, super tight and now I'm in 12s that are getting big. To understand how much weight I had lost I'll go to the grocery store and pick up 70 pounds of kitty litter. You can't understand how much you lose until you're physically holding it in your hands. Reporter: When Tory lers of kaolin's story they connected with Tory cheering her on all the way. I'm here at quinnipiac university to surprise her. I brought an extra treat, a $500 gift certificate to the gap. I think I hear her coming. Kaolin. Oh, my god. Hi. You're gorgeous. Thank you. Do you feel great. Yeah. I brought you a little present. Are you serious? Thank you, thank you, thank you. Reporter: The gift certificate will help kaolin with one of the most costly parts of losing weight, buying a new wardrobe for her new body. I've changed as a person and changed my whole personality. It's more than just weight loss. It is and I tell you, nothing brings this woman more joy than to bring other people joy like you did with Cailyn. She's one of so many others who we heard from who say I could never do this and inspired her father to lose 50 pounds, her mother that day was crying to me saying we cried everything and nothing worked. Nothing will work until you are ready and I know that. I know that. You know that because you wanted to show before and after pictures. You wanted people to remind people this is what you wanted to do. Yeah. Oh, my gosh. How did you allow me on television. Oh, come on. Seriously, seriously. When somebody said to me you don't look your best there's no way around that. There's no way to argue that. That's true. We don't need to show it anymore. And so what I think about, your mom, your mom saying make your mess your message and god knows I had a mess and to be able to use that to help other people for me is the greatest thing. I got to say this, we never saw that Tory. We just saw -- we saw the beauty, we saw the Test Text1 underline Test Text1 italics Test Textessage Everyone is those. So I believe from morning till night so I have my secret drawer here, red underwear, okay. The STO -- Do tell. When you bake up in the important and feel like the world is against you and you've got so much to do, that's your little hidden power secret. That's you being able to say to yourself I got this. Are you weighing it right now. I am wearing it right now. Of course, my big day then I end the night I made this pill show for myself. A little "Deals & steals." What went wrong? We're thinking about all the stuff we forgot and all the things we didn't do so this helps me to sort of celebrate the good things. I took a page from George and Dan Harris and learned meditation. If that's not your thing a ten-minute walk around 9 block every single day in the middle of the day, no device, that's your moment of calm. My last thing, okay, when you feel like doom and gloom, the world is against you, instead of reaching for cupcakes or chips like I used to you grab a balloon, right. You grab a balloon and empty moon and you release all that negativity. Instead of taking to social media and being a hater on bingeing on stuff, you sort of blow into that balloon all that stuff you've got to release and you let go of it. Let it go. With every breath I blow into this balloon I'm releasing negativity that can no longer occupy precious space inside me. "Shift for good." That's what it's about. It's changing the way you think in order to change the way you feel. Absolutely. Absolutely. And that for me is the key to losing weight, to being happier in all ways. Are we happy? Thank you. Thank you. Thank you, Tory, for always sharing and bringing such joy and "Shift for good" is on sale now and get more tips from Tory and read an excerpt of her book on on Yahoo!
