My Shift from “Get Skinny” to “Get Healthy” | #PSPfit Cycle 3


I’m always looking for new ways to measure healthy curves success… Do you have specific things you do to celebrate healthy curves outside of the scale or what size you wear?

One of my favorite things about the #PSPfit Bootcamp community is watching the bootcamp babes define success for themselves. Whether its quitting smoking, cooking more or taking a challenging gym class there are so many curvy girls making positive changes towards our health and in my opinion, that’s success.

For me, taking “skinny” out of the equation is changing my definition of success. I’ve spent half of my life obsessed with a body ideal that I’m pretty sure isn’t for me. If I keep focusing on skinny, I’ll always feel like a failure, but as I focus on healthy, I feel like I can set attainable goals for myself. Instead of a number on the scale or a pants size, success to me is doing the right things for my body (fitness/food/self care) and loving my body every step of the way.

Changing my focus from “Get Skinny” to “Get Healthy” has made a world of difference as I try to navigate healthy curves, PCOS and my body. Twice a year I share the resources I have available to me (fitness/nutrition coaches) with my readers. You can join the #PSPfit bootcamp here (Use 50% discount code APR201450)

    Its amazing the shift in mood and self-confidence once the “skinny” factor is taken out. I too had been always focused on being significantly less than I am now, realistic or not. This past year has been a boost to my self-esteem as started to view my weight loss classes as fitness classes and really started to dress how I wanted now and not wait until I was skinnier. And the classes now are such fun and you know if I miss one, its not the end of the world. Thanks for being such a wonderfully positive woman. You Rock!

    I’m so glad to see you separate health and positive self-care from weight-loss goals! I think it’s not only inaccurate to use weight to measure health, but it introduces an unnecessary poison pill into one’s relationship with self care practices. We will never all be thin and why should we want that lack of diversity? A weight-loss goal contributes to the general negativity that fat people face, whatever one intends. Did you see the research that finds what we believe about food actually changes the good we get from it? I feel vibrant when I focus on joy in movement and joy in eating and…as you say…joy in my embodiment as I am right now.
