Today’s episode features Shannon, who is the founder of FabUplus Magazine, and Tone, of the Cosmic Rogue Tribe podcast!
Shannon is breaking the media mold by offering a plus-size, body positive, health, fitness, weight neutral, and lifestyle PRINT magazine!! Listen in as she describes her leap of faith that has lead her on this awesome journey.
Shannon’s body positive journey began in the summer 2015 when she was just done, done with the body hate and the shame she felt over how she looked.
In July 2015 Shannon was on a mission, a mission to get thin.. she couldn’t stand her body any longer. At 250 pounds, She had been running 23 kilometers a week for 2 years and not getting the results she wanted.
She was eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly, why was she still fat?
She made an appointment with her doctor to explore weight loss surgery as an option. Bottom line, it wasn’t. Her tests showed she was healthy, fit, and therefore NOT a candidate for surgery.
Shannon set out on a mission, a mission to find others like her. She discovered a whole community of amazing plus size women living their lives to the fullest. Right then and there she knew the plus size community needed a media platform that was designed for them. A place that wouldn’t try to change who we are, but one what would celebrate our diversity. FabUplus was born!
