This July, Declare Independence from your Inner Bully!

Sometimes the biggest obstacle on the path to self acceptance is an inner bully. An inner bully is a negative force that lives in the subconscious and destroys acceptance and esteem with criticism and hate.

SSBBWs to blog about their lives each month...

My vision with this magazine is to let you know that you are not alone. There are other SSBBWs around the world with the same issues, thoughts, worries and joys as you have. Whether you have accepted your weight and love your body, whether you are actively working to lose weight or whether you want to get healthier and have more mobility but don't know where to start, you are not alone.

Whether you are single or in a relationship, have children or not, work or are unemployed, housebound or relatively mobile, healthy or have medical issues, you are not alone.

Let's band together and share our stories, our triumphs and our pain. Click here to view this months blogs.
