The Naked Truth: Amy Rangel

As a teenager in Texas, Amy Rangel "never felt ugly"--no matter what size she was. Then she moved to Los Angeles. "It's really brutal here," she says. "Someone I was dating...well, I had put on some weight, and she told me 'I'm not attracted to you anymore.' It was really hurtful. I don't think there's anything wrong with being heavy. I'm from Texas!"

Still, the experience inspired her to begin dieting and exercise, and this year she lost 50 pounds. Assessing her new body, she says, "This is the smallest I've ever been in my life. I'm a size 12. That's like giant for here, but back home people come up and say 'Oh, my gosh, you're so skinny.' " But Rangel says she's happy to have shed the pounds. "I do feel good about myself," the 26-year-old says. "But I'm choosing to be the size I am because I'm trying to be healthy. I'm not trying to be stick-thin or copy something I see in a magazine." Recently, her now-ex-girlfriend apologized for what she said. "She told me that I was beautiful," Rangel says. "She even told me that she thinks I'm the most beautiful woman on earth, which is kind of nice, you know?"
