About Me

I support the five principles of HAES℠:

1. Accepting and respecting the diversity of body shapes and sizes.

I designed Healthy Eating with Bliss™, Lifestyle Coaching, and wrote - Don't Weight, Eat Healthy and Get Moving NOW! My next book was a print version of my directory Plus Size Yellow Pages - THOUSANDS of Resources for living large in a small world.


While I was sleeping is when I figured out how to keep being my best self and contributing, even if I have many seizures a day.
