Now, she’s challenging herself to conquer the pull-up and she runs a Friday night running club, building a community of like-minded running fans. If you’ve set yourself a resolution to get into shape in 2020, read Kirsty’s story!

Out now in Top Sante.

In Best Magazine this week, we delve into the debate around normalising obesity. This was an interesting report to write, taking in comments from a GP and a nutrition expert and looking at how dangerous it is to be severely overweight OR underweight. Ultimately, the most important lesson is to look after ourselves and that includes being mindful about what we eat and how active we are.

Out in Best! now…

I would say it seems odd to think about Christmas while sipping on cocktails and topping up our tans, but let’s face it, summer’s a washout. It’s been raining for weeks… but, nevertheless it is sort of nearly Christmas, at least in mag land. In August, we start thinking about our Christmas ideas. By Christmas, we’re over at Mother’s Day.

Christmas stories…We are looking for any stories around the Christmas theme. Perhaps this will be your first Christmas with a long lost family member or your first Christmas since someone you love passed away. It might be your first Christmas alone, or maybe you love spending Christmas alone, or abroad, or both! Maybe you’ve lost weight since last Christmas or stuck to your new year resolutions in 2017. ANYTHING festive, get in touch today!

WELLStiffanyPrima1A story to celebrate the powerful connection between mother and daughter, here’s Tiffany in Prima’s Baby and Pregnancy Magazine out this month. Tiffany had been overweight before taking diet and exercise to the extreme, seeing her weight drop to a dangerous new low. It was the birth of Tiffany’s adorable daughter Amber, that taught her she couldn’t mess with her health anymore. Wanting to set a good example for her daughter, as well as be as fit and healthy as she could be so she can keep up with Amber’s toddler-energy, Tiffany is now a healthy weight and happier than ever.

Obesity and anorexia are tricky subject matters to cover, but Prima have done a superb job. If you’re keen to share your weight-related story, we’d love to hear from you. Thank you!

This week in Bella, best friends Cath and Claire tell their incredible story. When they met, both women were overweight. Then Claire started the Cambridge Weight Plan and transformed into the slim, healthy woman you can see in the pictures. Inspired, Cath followed suit. Only once Cath had lost weight did she discover a lump in her breast that turned out to be advanced and aggressive cancer. Had she not lost weight, she wouldn’t have found the lump.

Cath won her cancer battle and both women are now a fit and healthy size, they’re both Cambridge Weightloss consultants and both enjoying their fabulous friendship, their lives changed forever!

Cath and Claire were great to work with and their story celebrates friendship, while serving as a stark reminder to all women, make sure you check your breasts. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month so buy a copy of Bella and help spread awareness!

SchoolSport (Medium)So thrilled with my story in this month’s Essentials magazine. Not only do our lovely ladies Michelle, Cazz and Karen look super-fit, their stories are inspiring and wonderful. School sports tend to get forgotten as we enter adult life but these women are testament to the fact that a little bit of an old school sport can pay dividends for your health, fitness and social life.

You can read the story in Essentials this month.

We’ve all been there. You proudly lose a few pounds, so you reward yourself with some cake… and before you know it, you’ve gained more than you lost. The eternal yo-yoing of the frequent dieter. For Natasha, it was a back and forth journey that lasted years and saw her lose and gain hundreds of pounds. Eventually, she broke free of the cycle of dieting and realised the secret to the success of a constant, happy, healthy weight. 

To join her, you’ll have to read her excellent book, The IntoTrim Plan, available at
Natasha’s story appeared in the Mirror and Woman Magazine. Read more below
