Are you hitting your 40’s (50’s?) and cursing the fact that you’re still locked in that same old battle with your body?

Did you hope you have it all figured out by now? But here you are, you still haven’t lost that last stubborn stone (or two!) and your body’s starting to change in a whole host of different ways. Wrinkles, sags, skin tags, thread veins.  

Things you never really thought about until now ……… the face of body positivity that you don’t see cropping up on Instagram very often. And that leaves you feeling even more ashamed of yourself. And now here you are, trying desperately to squeeze in gym sessions and slimming club visits around the kid’s piano lessons, dance competitions and rugby tours.

Taking your mum and dad to their hospital appointments, getting the dog walked before the office, hitting your work deadlines……. The roller coaster feels never ending. And when you look back at the last 20 years, your prime, you realise how much of it you wasted on bloody dieting and being at war with your body! I’m here to help you make a vow, right here, right now, not to make the same mistake with the next 20 years. This is Your time, your life and it is far too precious to waste on yet more pointless diets.

I get it, I really do. I’ve been there, and I’d love to share with you the fabulous life that exists once you quit dieting and learn to listen to, live with and fall in LOVE with your wonderful body. After 3 decades of despising my body and being locked in a never-ending battle with it and food, believe me, I know how soul destroying the struggle can be. But as I discovered, there is another way, and now I want to help you discover how much easier life can be can be when you kick the diet mentality to the curb and start to make peace with your body! So here I am, at Happilicious, and I can’t wait to help you become the best version of yourself, body, mind and soul.

I’m Amy, a 40 year old Mum of two living in Cornwall in the UK.

After a lifetime of dieting and hating my body I discovered how to ditch it all and finally live a Happilicious life.

Getting My Body Positive Pants On

We have one life, and one body to live it in. Is mine the body I’d have picked out from the pre-life catalogue had I been given a chance? For years I’d have said no, but  do you know what? I’m getting to the stage in my life where I’m thinking that maybe it is! Because so far in my 40 years on this earth it has done me proud (even with the pretty serious demands I’ve put on it) and it enables me to live a bloody brilliant life that I am thankful for every day.

Am I body positive? You bet your bottom dollar I am!

Sunshine State (of mind)

What has changed this year? Well……me! And when I say me, I mean my mindset, NOT my body. I am not suddenly the taut size 10 I once dreamed of being. I am still the wobbly size 16 that my body seems to have settled at since I ditched the diets a couple of years ago. But, a few things have occurred to me which encouraged me to unleash my tankini on the beaches of Cornwall so I thought it might be worth sharing them.

Step away from the scales!

Gone are the days when I would weigh myself umpteen times a day and then allow the number before my eyes to dictate how the day was going to pan out. It’s time to find some fabulous ways of kicking the weighing scales into touch!
