Magic is also the host of "A Magical Life- health, wealth and weight loss". never truly felt well. After surviving a rough childhood, torn between a narcissist of a father and an unfeeling and emotionally neglectful mother, Magic stated "I learned that I was the only one I could depend on'. "I always felt like 'the black sheep' and found it hard to trust anyone". In my teens, my lack of control in my life led to anorexia and binge eating disorders. My weight was about all I could truly take charge of. By the age of 17, I had also become a binge drinker- leading to becoming an alcoholic by age 21. After transferring this lack of self-relationship to relationships with others, I found myself at the end of a string of emotionally vacuous and harmful relationships- culminating in a marriage to a narcissist (don't all girls end up marrying a version of their father?). Those self-esteem issues came back and again via my weight- I protected myself by becoming morbidly obese. That was the only way my body could physically be off-limits to an abusive husband (or so I thought). After enduring 14 years of being told I was ugly, worth nothing, a horrible mother, and much more- I left! I packed the kids, dogs, and cats into the car, loaded a truck, and fled town.
