Thank you for visiting my blog. : ) As a happy co-creator with my lovely, round, and healthy body, a body that I have spent the last 51 years getting to know and loving deeply and profoundly, it’s long been an interest of mine to chronicle my experience with learning to love my form and hopefully, inspire others to do the same. We’re not victims of our bodies. Regardless of how we look, we create our physical form (and all of life) with our thoughts, our emanations. It’s time for us to recognize the powerful role we play in life and body creation and, for the betterment of all humankind, accept our physical creation regardless of size, shape, fitness, weight, tone, etc. Why? So we can find our way toward love. Anything less than love is less than us.
I didn’t always love and appreciate my body. Even when I was rail thin (anorexic-induced thin), I thought my body was just plain wrong and out to ruin my life. I was adversarial with her. I dominated her with four hours of exercise daily; I rarely ate. I hurled insults at her constantly and hated the way that I looked. The process of learning to love my body has been fraught with pain, doubt, anguish, fear, and finally, through lots of work, acceptance, love, and peace. I’m largely (ha, ha!) peaceful now and I truly love the way that I look and feel. I am healthy. I am strong. I can lift an 800+ pound motorcycle if I have to. That is what it’s all about.
So, in an effort to help other people, primarily women, understand on a deeper level the connection between thoughts and what we physically manifest by way of our bodies and lives, I offer this blog, a place for us to celebrate whatever we manifest, a place to praise all of us in all of our forms (whether big or small).
My name is Liz Casey. I’m a widely published freelance writer, size activist, co-creator, self-esteem promoter, and lover of the dialog between the body and consciousness. Professionally, I’m a 20-year Technical, copy, and creative writer. Hoh-boy, I write. Alot. I live with my husband of 23 years, an adorable cat, an equally delicious Harley-Davidson Street Glide CVO (yes, all mine), and about 1000 (actual, real) books.

And, if you’ve made it this far, here’s a photo of me at The AZ State HOG Rally from 2014. I was being a bit naughty with a boy named “Jack”. Honestly, it was my very first time drinking this particular form of strychnine. I will not be doing that again. LOL!
