You’ve probably seen a version of this story in the news: a fat person is publicly shamed, becomes “motivated” to lose weight then shares his/her “secret”. Or, like Shauna Arocho, are fat shamed but vigorously defended because they’re in the process of losing weight. While I respect people’s choices to do with their bodies as they… Continue reading Jamie Lopez – Being the Change
As a fat woman who wears size 26/28 and sometimes 30/32, it’s disappointing when clothes are promised to be for “all women” but the size charts belie that promise. It’s a topic I’ve written on several times before when Old Navy, Kelly Osbourne and Melissa McCarthy launched collections that did not fit all bodies. I’m… Continue reading #AllMeansALL!!!
I wear very little makeup… mostly eyeliner, mascara and lip color… so skin care is an extremely important part of my daily routine. As my skin ages and becomes drier (hello mid-50’s!), I’m on the lookout for products to help keep it clear and moisturized. When my friend Lissa offered to send samples of products… Continue reading Product Reviews – Perfectly Posh
Earlier this week I posted on my personal Facebook page about my latest blood test results… still improving since they were mentioned in an earlier blog post. Almost immediately there were messages asking what I did. It reminds me of those who brag about weight loss or post before/after photos. Invariably someone wants to know their “secret” and… Continue reading Ch-ch-ch-choices

Hello beauties. Here it is, the first day of 2017 and I’m starting it with some self love. Between work, the holidays and family matters the last few weeks had been hectic. I started to feel run down but errands have to be run and things have to get done, right? So it was no surprise… Continue reading Taking Care of Me
It’s that time of year when we’re bombarded with hype in order to pour over 60 billion dollars into the coffers of the weight loss industry. Between ads for diet programs (like Weight Watchers with famous stock holder Oprah Winfrey) and products (like prescription medication Contrave), the message is that our bodies… and even our brains… aren’t acceptable. We’re… Continue reading ReVolution, Not ReSolution!
November is one of my favorite months. The days turn brisk and cold and it’s the start of the holidays. In a few days, I’ll celebrate my 54th birthday and still say that it’s never too late to overcome one’s fear of trying new things… Like getting my hair cut short… … and wearing 2-piece swimsuits I’m… Continue reading Another Year Older…
Hi there, beautiful people! I hope you’re all doing well and enjoying the Fall (or Spring if you’re in the Southern Hemisphere). Fall is such a great season, don’t you think? Crisp air, red and golden leaves, freshly picked apples and pumpkins, soups and stews simmering on lazy Sunday afternoons… what’s not to love? One… Continue reading OOTD: Leggings, Tunics and Boots. Oh, Yay!
Calling my NYC area female readers, sizes 12 and up… how would you like to help make a difference in how clothes are sized for plus-sized women?
