Nikki talks exclusively to HEAT magazine this week about her anorexia relapse. Having to work out 2 times a day and only taking in 1200 calories. Nikki was on the road to recovery after attending regular body awareness sessions at a clinic. However she has now confessed that she is once again obsessively exercising and dieting.
Nikki has also admitted that her low weight makes her miserable, and that she fears she'll struggle with her body issues for the rest of her life.
"When I allow myself to get below 40kg (6st 4lb), I'll always be unhappy because my brain is starved. I've just got to stay above that weight." Continues Nikki, "It's something I will battle all of my life, but I want more than anything to get it under control." Read more at HEATWORLD.
Nikki came to Australia with her mother on Australia Day and stayed through February. She enjoyed her stay with visits to Taronga Park Zoo (see picture), Bondi Beach, Manly, Sydney Aquarium and around Darling Harbour. The weather wasn't that kind to her in Sydney which was being affected by the La Nina event (Pacific Oscillation) bringing a lot of rain. But she stayed on in Melbourne for another two weeks and enjoyed the sunshine there, visiting the Neighbors TV set and travelling The Great Ocean Road. Nikki seemed happy enough but she struggled with diet and the need for exercise and made regular visits to the gym even on holiday.
Nikki I am glad you are seeking help to overcome your issues with dieting and exercise. I just want you to know I am right behind and support you 100%. You also have lots of fans who love you, and you continue to inspire many suffers that read your book. You can overcome this Nikki as you have done before, just want you to be happy. Look forward to next time you and you mum come back to Australia.
