There’s nothing like the first week of January to make a woman feel bad about her appearance. That’s when talk shows and magazines are filled with experts telling women to change—primarily how to lose weight. With the vast majority of women in the US and Canada wearing more than a size 12, this is disheartening to say the least.
Supermodel Emme, the first plus-size supermodel back in the 1990’s, and Natasha Stoynoff, the former People magazine writer who famously told her story about being assaulted by Donald Trump, and then lived through his public bashing of her appearance, are coauthors, along Amy Newmark, are proud to present a groundbreaking approach to the New Year, New You news cycle, with Chicken Soup’s latest release, 101 true personal stories by women who are curvy but confident. Women who have learned that they are okay, and that they can wear pretty clothing and swimsuits, do all the things that skinnier women are doing, and live their lives with gusto.
Join Amy Newmark, the publisher and editor-in-chief for Chicken Soup and me on Tuesday, December 27, 10-11 A.M. CT US. Amy and I will be discussing deeply personal stories from Supermodel Emme, Natasha Stoynoff, Sherri Shepherd (actress, former host The View), and other influencers in the plus-size community.
