Do I Have a Food Addiction?

My weekend was rather busy, celebrating my husband’s 30th birthday in Dallas. And while Friday was consumed by it, I decided to make a point to attend a film festival the next day. It was the Attic Film Festival, a series of redemptive films, that I felt would not only be a great addition to…

Ready to Ditch the Diet?

Imagine waking up tomorrow feeling comfortable in your own skin, knowing you are worthy and perfect just the way you are. Imagine having a positive relationship with food; no more stress, no more tension, just enjoyment and nourishment. As an advocate for self-love and true happiness I have talked to many who have found that diets…

A Breakdown to a Breakthrough

This weekend my husband and I had one of those epic fights. If you’re married now or have ever been married, you know what I’m talking about. It seems to happen about once a year. A knock-down drag out fight that really defines the relationship. It’s painful to go through but we always come out…

Hips Don’t Lie 36,000 Feet Up

I arrived two hours early with a bit of anxiety about the flight I was about to take. Thoughts had been mulling over inside of my head about how things would work out for me. It would be the first time I would travel in my extra plus sized body. I kept hoping that my…

If The Shoe Doesn’t Fit, Why Am I Wearing It?

I think everyone who is a size 14 and up can say that finding decent clothing that fits well is a challenge. Every time I have to find an outfit for a special event, I feel like I am gearing up for battle. I know there’s a good chance I’ll visit 6 different stores only…

Contouring- Why Should We Care?

I’ve gotten to the point now where my face is carrying some of my extra weight. I used to have cheek bones and a nice pointy chin. Now everything’s a little more muddled together. I’ll admit it’s not my favorite thing but I it’s not something I obsess over either. For the most part, it…

I Have a Limit

I realize this is a body positive blog and I constantly encourage others to love themselves right where they are. That will never change. I personally work hard every day to find joy in my current size. However, I do have a limit and I don’t think anything’s wrong with that. There’s no doubt that…

Let’s Talk Panties!

Oh boy, this is a subject! Ever since I’ve been plus sized, I’ve struggled finding underwear. In fact, when I gained a substantial amount of weight after my pregnancy, I found that only maternity panties were doing the trick for me. Talk about not feeling sexy, huh? I mean, yeah there are plenty of brands…

Women on a Mission

Ever since I started my Facebook group, it came unbelievably apparent to me how much plus size women struggle to find clothes that they both love and feel fit well. It’s a subject that often dominates the forum. I myself am no exception. Most plus size brands charge more than I can afford to have…
