Here´s a little side step from my comics, music and other creative work.
In the past 10 years I have worked really hard to arrive at a place of body positivity. I finally like what I see in the mirror and absolutely love this soul and the body it is currently living in. For me body positive means that any body is good, fat, thin, tall, small etc. This also means that when I weighed 101 kg I was good. And if I was to lose 20 kg I would still be good. My worth isn't defined by my weight. I am and I will always be funny, creative and beautiful but my focus at the moment is on my health. I suffer from fibromyalgia, I'm getting aches in my knees and recently my feet have started hurting. As I grow a little bit older I realize more and more that I will need this body for at least 40 more years and in order for me to feel less pain and feel healthier it may be a good decision to lose some weight. Not for the looks especially (I find the idea of looking a lot different suddenly quite scary to be honest) but for my health. So this is the frame from which I pursue weight loss.
It is possible that you feel I shouldn't lose weight because you dig my curves or like me to stay as I am. Fine. That is your opinion. This however is my website and I blog about my own opinions and decisions. This is my journey and with this blog and my update videos I am not saying everyone should lose weight. Just do you and let me do me. I don't really know what to do with comments saying that I am not fat. This is MY body. I have about 25 kg overweight, I am obese, it is a simple fact. And I chose to do with it what I want. And at this point in time I choose to lose weight to get healthier and feel better in my body. Please respect my wish to do so.
I made an English video review of the herbal drink SkinnyLove on my own youtubechannel and in it I talked about my relationship with food and how I tried out this product. I concluded that it's great because it takes away some of my chronic pains, supports healthy weight loss, with healthy eating tips and positive live streamings. I also asked if there was maybe a nice millionaire who'd marry me, so that I could drink it for the rest of my life Alain from SkinnyLove then sent me a personal message saying he isn't a millionaire and he already has a wonderful wife but he did want to offer me SkinnyLove for at least a year. So folks, from this point onward I am sponsored to keep using SkinnyLove and will continue this interesting journey of health, food and weight loss. I'm truly humbled by the amazing offer, thankful and so excited! Those who know me, know I will still give honest information, even if I'm sponsored
Once every two weeks there will be a short Dutch update on the SkinnyLove youtube channel and on the SkinnyLove Facebookpage! Here below is the first update.
On my own youtube channel there will also be regular (monthly) English updates in which I will talk more about how I feel, my emotions in this journey and how it's all going with me and Skinnylove. Stay tuned, subscribe to all these channels if you don't want to miss a thing. Have a wonderful day!

Your positive feedback and especially support is very welcome. But do make sure your comment fits in with the body positive view; be positive and supportive. Negative feedback will not be published. I am not looking for advise about how I should do more sports or how I am doing things wrong. I have chronic pain and I know this body best; I follow my own program. I take advise from one person only and that is Alain Indria, he is my coach. Feel free to approach him with any Skinnylove questions you may have.
