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!

Darryn Lyons the epicenter of one of the worst and best few weeks of my life. And you will have to watch the show, weeknights at 7pm to see it play out, but for now... [more]

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]

It’s time to cut the crap!

Okay so it’s a new year and I am very excited. Someone sent me this clip of Excess Baggage and I loved it. So funny! Having been a part of Biggest Loser [more]

It’s time to cut the crap! It’s time to cut the crap!

Safety first!

Michelle Bridges filed an AVO because she was photographed in the supermarket? Oh boy, where do I start? First of all, AVO stands for Apprehended Violence Order because they are designed to protect victims of stalking/domestic violence – to keep them safe and more importantly ALIVE! We have fought for YEARS to have these taken…

Birthday Botox!

“If I could turn back time….” Yes Cher, if I could turn back time I would on so many things but not the ones you might think. Life is too short to dwell on what might have been. I’m an optimist and far too preoccupied with what might happen next to think about my shoulda…

It’s time to cut the crap!

Michelle Bridges came out on Australian Story last night and claimed she has never met a morbidly obese person who was happy. And before we get into this and before we think of “morbidly obese” as Gilbert Grape’s 400 kilo mom being forklifted out of her home, “morbidly obese” is a term dictated by an…


It’s 4 am and I can’t sleep. I’m angry. After waking up to go pee, I foolishly clicked on a link someone had mentioned me in on Facebook. The Australian Women’s Weekly had a conversation going about whether or not it is okay for ME to be asking/BEGGING strangers for money. Interesting. There’s always so…


Taste the Rainbow

I needn’t explain to you the Supreme Court Ruling allowing same sex marriage across the United States, just last week…….but what has been enlightening and somewhat disturbing is to see how it has impacted on those who don’t support it. In an ironic twist, when the power is no longer in their favor it is…

Mobo helps your Mojo

A couple of months ago I stumbled upon a nutritional supplement that has changed the way I view my hunger. Now, I’m not talking about one of those nasty hunger busting pills every chronic dieter has taken. They are horrible, dangerous, most don’t work and I’ve tried most of them. They leave you grinding your…

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 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…
