Down but definitely NOT out!

Okay so it is a brand new day and one of the many great lessons I have learned from Dr Tim on Excess Baggage is to not go down for the count but to fight on, [more]

Down but definitely NOT out! Down but definitely NOT out!

Cover (up) Girl!

“Oh wow some random celebrity has the very same bikini as me”. I can’t see the face of the alleged celebrity cause there is a big box across their face,  [more]

House rules for losing weight

A few people reached out and asked if I would share my hints and tips for getting started on a new healthier regime. That’s right, I didn’t use the word diet because it is so much harder to “diet” than it is to be “healthier”. We put so much pressure on ourselves to achieve celebrity…

Fat Don’t Crack

I woke up this morning to the Internet blowing up over Rebel Wilson’s alleged age. According to website Mamamia.com.au Rebel’s past is somewhat not what she has portrayed it to be, most significantly the idea that Rebel is 36 and not the 28 she is purported to be in various places around the web. Now…

It’s time to “drop the plus”

The whole world knows I have struggled with a range of eating disorders my entire life or to be EXACT – a single eating disorder that manifests itself in various conditions. We like to only discuss the idea that only skinny girls can have an eating disorder and prefer to lump bigger people in with…

Could Mobiles be the Future for Wellness?

Could Mobile be the Future for Wellness? Whenever a new piece of technology comes along, we instinctively ask ourselves, “How will this impact my life?” Before investing in a new computer or a new phone, many of us spend hours trying to determine just how much we’ll be able to use it, and how well…

Free The Spanx

(You are  welcome to share this article and the photos but please credit people where appropriate and include original post link. Thank you) I have to share a really cool thing I’ve learned lately and I want you to trust me and try it. Just recently I separated from a group of girls who were…

I’m getting married in the morning……

Well, not quite but I’ve said yes to the dress but just like in Muriel’s Wedding, I am yet to find the man of my dreams but I am determined to meet and marry him by the end of 2015….except it’s April already so I had better get a move on! I don’t care if…

Go Fund Yourself! Go Fund your mother! Go Fund ME!

They say one door closes and another opens and I am a firm believer of following the energy. I will never stop fighting for equality for all people but now perhaps it is time to turn my attention to my other great passion – anti bullying and a project I have been working on and…

Lazy, genius or just downright nasty?

This little gem that just popped up on Twitter feed this morning. Jen Widerstrom, my all time favorite coach from Biggest Loser USA, who I have written a multitude of wonderful articles about tweeted this today. This was my response: None of us know this woman’s story. You question if it’s genius but we really…

Dropped from DropThePlus

Really disappointed in Stefania Ferrario….when ‪#‎droptheplus‬ started she was an unknown model who happened to stand up for me when I shouted out about a certain Aussie model being called plus sized and how that affects real plus sized women and/or distorts the self images of those struggling with eating and body dysmorphia disorders. She…

Curve Appeal

I have been body shamed my entire life…..not just by the world in general but my myself as well. I’ve given myself a harder time than anyone else about my body and what I find ironic is, even though I’m currently bigger than I would ever have previously allowed myself to be without feeling a…
