ABOUT

Fat To Fab Over 50

I am an award winning TV producer and Advertising Executive. By all objective measure, I am successful in my personal and professional life. My husband loves me, my children are healthy, my business is one of the top Ad Agencies in South Florida, I’m a co-founder of a digital technology company, and I joyfully volunteer in my community. During Women’s History Month this year, the Mayor of Miami-Dade County, Florida chose me as the Pioneer Woman of the Year and the National Small Business Association nominated me as one of the top 5 Small Business owners in the country.

I am also 100lbs over weight. Many of our longtime clients think I’m clever no matter what size I am. But not every potential client I pitch immediately sees beyond my size. I must work harder to overcome their initial internal question, “If she can’t manage her own weight how can she manage my account?”

Like many women, I organize everything and everyone else’s life. I have made everyone and everything else the priority. I have somehow lost myself in the process.

The catalyst?

Not too long ago, I had a woman come up to me and say “Your children are so gorgeous” and I laughed just thrilled at the compliment. “Oh my god aren’t they gorgeous? I can’t even be modest!” I beamed with pride. She then said “You need to lose a lot of weight. They really deserve better.” I was rendered speechless. I walked away, hid and cried. It was a painful thing to hear. It was a cruel thing to say…out loud. I knew she was saying what others think or say behind my back.

I decided to look at it as an unintended gift…

I am fat, over-fifty and relaunching my life. The journey is just beginning.
