I get a lot of emails from girls like me and it never surprises me how similar our experiences are. For most of us, we started dressing when we were younger and whether it was conscience or instinctive, we knew we had to hide this. Some of us felt shame, some of us were embarrassed, … Continue reading The T Word

I fully accept that I will never completely understand why I am who I am. It could be genetics, it could be nothing more than how I am wired. I know I also overthink this aspect of myself.

Hi girls! Let’s start this week with the cheerful realization that the world will never be ready for us. AND! Since the world will never be ready for us than the world will never let us know it’s okay to be who we are. Some of us are waiting for the day for the world … Continue reading The World isn’t Ready
I work hard to stay in shape. It gets harder as I get older and it’s not always easy to work out early in the mornings or pass up dessert, but these simple(?) things are really how I stay a size 12. I mean, it SOUNDS simple but it’s so easy to tell myself that I’ll … Continue reading Shattering the Hourglass Figure
