Let me ask you a question? When did you go on your first diet and why? Can you even remember? For me, it is all a bit blurry. I can remember when I was still going to dance school at the age or 10 or 11 hearing the mums of other children discussing our changing…

Now I will be completely honest with you guys here. I have a real love hate relationship with yoga…well with any kind of stretching or slow contemplative movement really, but it is something I have tried time and time again over the years with little success. I can remember going to a class at my…

I read this poem by Maya Angelou when I was 16. I had really poor body image at the time and thought I was hugely overweight, which I wasn’t at that point. I still have a copy of this scribbled in a notepad from that time and reading it back it makes me realise that…
