In this week’s Best magazine, the feel-good story of three women refusing to let naysayers stand in their way, crush their dreams or dampen their spirit. I love this kind of story, it makes me want to fist-bump the air and say YEAH! I’m particularly inspired by Kathy, because I’m going grey at a rate of knots and despise society’s expectation for women to hide and dye every grey strand, lest we embrace our age!

If you have an inspiring story about how you defied the critics, I’d love to hear it – 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!

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

Anna is a shining example of fitness – and she doesn’t want any women thinking that just because they aren’t built like Cameron Diaz, they’re not fit and fabulous. Anna spoke up in Best magazine to show readers the true meaning of fitness.

Just saying – you don’t have to be thin to be fit.
Anna, 36, says:
Fat back, chunky arms – that’s what people think when they see me coming.
You probably think I’m a layabout, right? Wrong. I get it all the time. When I enter my Zumba class, people think I’m there to dawdle at the back. When I go to the front of the room and take charge, their faces are a picture.
How can I possibly do up to eight hours of exercise a day and still wear a size 14?
