You almost have to be living under a rock not to have heard about the 47-year old unemployed, Susan Boyle who sang her way into frame on the TV program - Britain Has got Talent. If you have somehow missed it - please take 7 minutes to be inspired!

It really does just go to show that we should never judge a body or a book by it's cover. I recently had my own little Susan Boyle moment. I was going for a big interview - I needed to make a good impression. I wanted to sell a bunch of executives an idea they wouldn't normally buy into.

But would you believe that I managed to leave all my 'interview clothes' at home? Small problem - ahem... I didn't think they'd approve of the naked version!

So here I was frantically searching for something to wear. With my short legs finding anything that doesn't need to be taken up is an enormous challenge. All I could find were some stovie jeans - 3/4 pants for any 'normal' woman (whatever that is - normal for me is short, even if most shops don't think so).

However, I can't say I felt comfortable. That's how strong is the idea that we're 'supposed' to dress to impress. Then I had this 'aha moment' that they wouldn't be able to judge me only by my cover(ing) if I was just my cheeky self. So I decided to Susan Boyle my way through the interview - I was going to rock them. I wasn't going to even let them notice my covering.

It was quite strange but just deciding this gave me a weird kind of freedom - they were going to see so much of me that they wouldn't even notice my covering. I was sassy, I was cheeky, I teased and challenged them, they loved it and I walked away with what I wanted.

Susan Boyle, you're an inspiration! And you can be too, please share your Susan Boyle weight story here. Living light takes a MENTAL shift, its something that has to happen internally. And that's why I've called my website Ditch Diets and Live Light.

And you can't live light when you're allowing heavy thoughts to dominate! So why not join me on the 2nd May in Napa California at my 4-hour workshop.

I LOVE this website. It's really thought-provoking, it's given me ideas about dieting and weight loss that I would never have contemplated. It makes such sense in a world where much about dieting doesn't. Bravo! I also loved your quizzes. I will be a repeat visitor. PS I have signed up for your free Joy-Filled Body Tips.

The Green Eating Guide

I am a university-bound teenager from the United States. Two years ago I was diagnosed with anorexia, a battle that eventually found me in the hospital.Dieting has robbed me of too much time. I found this website by chance. I've spent a lot of time browsing through articles and reading stories. It has changed my attitude and made me want to be MY ideal weight, not someone else's. Thank you to all the contributors and readers of Mind over Fatter. I deeply appreciate everything you do.(abridged by Cari)

Food Advertising Lies

It's easy in our society today to feel that our value is determined by the number on the scale. I am encouraged to change my mind so I can love myself for who I am not how much I weigh. Thank you so much for your website. It is such an inspiration to me!
Thank you! Rachel, USA
