Thrive Any Weight – Where a woman thrives in spite of her size

Yes we have a weight issue. Yes we wish we were thinner, in better shape or just felt better about who we are.

It’s a challenge to have a full life outside of the hurdle we call ‘Body Image’. We have been inundated by the media about how size matters. We have been beaten to death with the facts about who is acceptable and who is not. And you know what? We believed them. WE BELIEVED THEM!!!!

We’ve held back from dressing with reckless abandon, playing fully, having extraordinary social lives and relationships and that’s not OK.

It’s time to delete the brainwashing that we are unacceptable, unattractive or undesirable the way we are now. We can’t blame ‘them’ either. You know; those who criticize us for being this way. We can’t blame them because they too have been brainwashed and their thoughts and opinions came from yet someone else’s prejudice.

I proclaim that the solution to the issue of body image lies within each of us. It is our right and our duty to dare to go out and be GREAT in spite of our size.

Hello new friend! I am Fran Asaro.

I live in Stuart Florida and am originally from Long Island NY. I am a life and business coach by day and I created this site for fun and to support other women who have been thwarted in some way or another in their lives because of their weight. My philosophy is that everyone should Thrive In Spite of their current circumstance. That includes those of us challenged by size.

I am a plus size woman as well who, even though my greatest vision is to have an ideal body – I’m not there, yet. I have had successful businesses and amazing relationships. I have had a very full social life and I continue to be daring at a level that is comfortable to me. I also know that I am held back in certain areas of my life and would like to break through as well.

I began Thrive Any Weight because for years I wanted to help make a difference for other plus sized women. I thought when the time came that I lost weight that I would make a difference helping others do so.  Well, even after studying nutrition, veganism, raw foods (even becoming a raw food chef) I didn’t lose the weight. That’s when I realized that my contribution was to help people get through this portion of their lives. We probably don’t need another person telling us how to eat, right?

So here the platform I created to communicate with you. One where I can contribute to those of you who are like me – Large and lovely. I want to create a place where we can talk openly about sex, relationships, career/business, wellness, visions, socializing and much more.

Sign up for this blog if you want to be a part of a group of large women who are ready to move beyond their size and step into the highest version of themselves. Also, please look for teleclasses and programs to follow.

This is not a weight loss program. I am an advocate for wellness and we may bring in thoughts and ideas about that, however this is for those of you who are being stopped or consumed by your weight and have forgotten how to really live!

Even though this blog is about thriving beyond our size, I plan to bring up size a lot, because I don’t want to ignore that we think about it.

If you want to communicate with me privately, please email me at  fran@thriveanyway.com  I am here to support your living a large life!
