In May 2008, she appeared on the Today Show, accompanied by Amy Astler, Editor-in-Chief of Teen Vogue magazine, and talked about the increasing pressure to be thin as a model. She stated that she "hadn't had [her] period in over a year" and had a wake-up call on a plane, when, she said, "I ran my fingers through my hair, and when I took my hand away there was a dry brittle clump of hair in my hand". Michael began to see a nutritionist to deal with her weight and eating issues, including bulimia nervosa. Regarding her interview on the Today Show about her weight loss, Michael said, in the February 2009 issue of Teen Vogue, "I've had a lot of girls come up to me to say 'Thank you,' and that makes me feel good". She also said that she was not alone in her weight struggles, and that many models starve themselves. Ali subsequently returned to Texas to complete her schooling.
