Why did I create the More To Love Class?
Not too long ago, I believed all my wildest dreams would be possible when my body became smaller. I would look and feel beautiful. I could wear whatever I wanted without hesitation or scrutiny. I'd feel more at ease in life, have more fun and be praised for losing weight, finally.
Years of dieting only provided me this: I felt exhausted and disappointed from the whole weight-loss scheme. I was tired of feeling like I had to apologize for the way my body looked. I didn't want to keep living just a fraction of my life, waiting until the weight was gone to start being happy. Yet I still believed in order to feel better, I had to weigh less.
Until something really amazing changed for me...
I'm sure you too are tired of feeling like a failure for being bigger. Tired of keeping yourself held back due to fear around your body and how it looks to others. Maybe you're still waiting until the pounds go away to find love, find peace, to wear that beautiful sleeveless dress, to walk into a room with a confident stride and beaming smile.
I know how much you want to stop being mean to your own body, to stop critiquing, judging, depriving and hiding. To be able to confidently push back against nit-pickers in your life who keep moralizing your choices. To be able to say "Yeah, I'm bigger—but the scale doesn't measure the whole person I am!"
So let me ask you then....
is your pant-size worth more than your happiness?
When I asked myself this seemingly small question of revolt against the norm of dieting and body-shame, a revolutionary idea emerged: Even if I NEVER lost a single pound again—I am still allowed to love my body.
Whoa - pretty radical shift from like, 99% of the media out there! It was one of those realizations that zap something into you and everything seems different. I was excited! Inspired! I hid my scale in the closet and exclaimed "I'M DONE DIETING!" for the world to hear.
But then, silence. "Ok...now what?"
We often hear "just love yourself!" as if it were the special ingredient to overcoming body-shame. But honestly, what does that even mean? Where do you start? What does "loving your body" look like?
It can feel daunting to navigate a new diet-free world while still running on lots of old programs and mechanisms from the previous way of thinking about your body. I knew I wanted to connect the dots of self-love and body acceptance, but found very little help in this realm.
So, I decided I had to carve out my own path towards body acceptance if I wanted peace. The insights I discovered during my own self-love quest became the foundation of the More To Love Class. Today, I am privileged to help women, just like you, learn to love their plus size body and not be defined by the number on the scale.

Alright, sounds good - but what are the 28 daily activities like?
Each day during MTLClass, you will learn something incredible about how you connect to your body and yourself. For 28 days, everyone works on the same daily activity and shares within the group. The activities cover an array of topics related to body-image and size acceptance, with special attention to overcoming negative thoughts and beliefs, understanding your relationship to food, the movement of your body and self-care habits.
The activities are designed to foster deep reflection of your unique body-story and inspire you to respond creatively, authentically and honestly. Some activities will include journaling, vision statements, goal-setting and digital collage making via PicMonkey.com.
Some days will be challenging, but that's the point—you cannot grow unless you experience, understand and consciously move beyond what has been holding you back. Not only will you have my help and encouragement, you'll also have a loving community to cheer you on! All of the actions are designed to help re-frame your view of your body to one of kindness, love and vitality.
