About Me

Well, where do I start… I have been “plus size” ever since I can remember. Around the age of 6 I ballooned and have yo-yo dieted ever since. Now I’m 31 and it’s taken many years for me to become comfortable with my body. Am I happy? No, I don’t think anyone can truly say they love everything about themselves but I am at a place in my life now where I no longer let it control my every move. I eat relatively healthy however I am prone to snacking and I am no where near as active as I should be but with a busy job and family life the hours quickly go by! I want to make a point that I am not promoting weight gain or unhealthy lifestyles. I believe that you can be any size and healthy with the right combination of eating and exercise. I know many women including myself who are a size 18 plus and never visit a McDonalds!

I recently embarked on a healthy/weight loss mission and things are slowly changing for me.  My reasons behind this are completely different to previous attempts as we are hoping to try for a baby this year! I wanted the best start in life for both me and baby if that day should ever come.  I started calorie counting using the TDEE -20% method which can easily be googled, and took part in plenty of exercise. I even learnt how to swim!  In November 2014, I hurt my knee while in London and since then my weight loss has slowed right down so I joined Slimming World in January 2015.  So far since the beginning I have lost around 3 and a half stones.

I’m currently a 14 UK size and I’m not afraid to dress sexily, yet classily. I feel that curvier women shouldn’t feel the need to cover up in baggy clothes and I started this “fatshion” blog with the aim of showing women that they can be absolutely stunning no matter what size they are… and to give them a guide on where to find fashionable clothing in plus sizes since the high street still fails to deliver. So I hope you enjoy my blog and let me know you’re reading it! I love to hear from fellow fashionistas!
