    I Walked The Runway As A Plus Size Model…

    I walked the runway as a plus size model! I still feel like squealing when I say that. I still can’t stop looking at pictures from that night, just a few short weeks ago! And I’ll never forget how sassy, sexy, empowered & confident I felt in my body… My plus size fat body. Taking up space. To go from, not even a year ago, when I HATED my body and was still stuck in the yo/yo ball of dieting, feeling uncomfortable in my own skin, etc. to strutting down the runway… Well, I think that’s pretty damn powerful, brave, bold and truly embracing my shining self and living my…

    Have You Seen This Nike Ad Yet?

Something that brings tears to your eyes because it hits so close to home? That’s exactly what just happened when I saw this video. Check it out for yourself and I’ll explain more below: Good grief that just sends me into so many emotions (I’ve cried the last three times I’ve watched it!)!

    It’s taken me a long time to finally accept and love me, the whole me. To finally be ok in my own skin. To finally look in the mirror and love my body – jiggly thighs, saggy arms, big belly full of stretch marks and a c-section scar. It’s taken a really long time…but I promise you when you get to this point, it is so worth it! Speaking of loving myself and my body, Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching. I used to be so against this day. I despised it. I hated all those happy couples around me being all gushy lovey dovey. Because I used to think I…

    What Price Are You Willing to Pay?

    You want to feel accepted & fit in but it means… Dieting – take it to whatever extreme you have to just to lose weight because that’s what you’re told you should do (by well meaning family and friends, doctors, and the media). Your extreme and my extreme will be two different things. I starved myself, landed in the emergency room because of diet pills (thanks ephedrine…I think the FDA finally banned diet pills with that shit in it several years after my scare!). I binged & purged, tried Weight Watchers, cabbage soup diet, Atkins, calorie restriction , and so many other fad diets out there to lose weight. Why?…

    Setting New Year’s Resolutions? Here’s How to Do It Shame Free

    I’ve been kinda bashing New Year’s Resolutions lately and for me personally I don’t set them anymore, haven’t in a long time. Instead, I pick a word (usually it ends up being 2-3 words)/theme for the year to focus on. New Year’s Resolutions never worked for me and left me “hating” myself more for not being able to stick, yet again, to another diet/weight loss program, exercise routine, etc. But for some, New Year’s Resolutions are what they still do. So, today I’m saying if you’re going to set some do it shame-free and I have a great resource for you to check out. Amber from Body Positive Yoga has…
