Osbourne makes it clear that it was her health, not just her appearance, that she wanted to improve through losing weight.

"I did it because I wanted to live," she explained. "I wanted the body to match the mind, because I, 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."

She says people have focused on the wrong aspects of her transformation.

While Osbourne had her own reasons for wanting to transform her body, she said that many people assume they know what prompted her journey. "Everyone was so, like, caught up in how, how I look. They never asked me how I felt," said the star.

However, Osbourne said she's eager to see what the next chapter of her life holds. "I'm excited about what I don't know. I'm excited about what I do know… the world is scary right now, but… it's an honor to be a part of the world."

While Osbourne admitted to relapsing after four years of sobriety, she said that she's not letting it derail the impressive progress she's made.

Admitting that she often finds herself engaging in self-destructive behaviors when her life feels like it's going too smoothly, Osbourne said that she now realizes she's not a person who can drink casually.

"I am an addict and had thought that I had enough time under my belt and I could drink like a normal person, and it turns out I cannot and I will never be normal," she explained. "I don't know why I even tried it. It's not for me and it took me a matter of days and I was like done, not doing this."
