Every first Wednesday of each month (always at noon, pst), our show is dedicated to bariatric, weight loss surgery, and weight loss topics.  This week, my good friend Dagny Kight will be filling in as host for me. Dagny is an active health and wellness advocate and the author of Powerful Hunger.

Today’s program is all about well-known sayings and what they mean to you, or how the make you feel, and we’d love for you to discuss this on the show.  The phone line and live chat will be open that day, or you may leave comments on the blog here.  Examples:

  • We’ve all heard “Diets don’t work.” What do you think most people think of when they hear that phrase? Do they take it literally? What does it mean to you?
  • .A widely-recommended weight loss strategy is “Think like a thin person.” How does that make you feel? Do you think it’s a legitimate strategy for losing weight? How DO thin people think??
  • When people hear “Weight is not an indicator of health” they often interpret that in different ways. What does it mean to you? What do you think most people believe it means?
  • What do you think people mean when they say “Weight loss surgery is the easy way out. It’s cheating.” Why do you think people use this as an insult? There are a lot of angles to consider with this one!
  • What does “Fat Acceptance” mean to you? It’s closely associated with “Health at Every Size.” The Association for Size Diversity and Health lays out specific principles for FA and HAES but they are interpreted many different ways. Tell us what they mean to you and how you think others view FA and HAES.

I recently read a very interesting article by Marianne Kirby on xoJane called, “I’VE ONLY GOT 1 THING TO SAY TO FOLKS WHO DON’T UNDERSTAND FAT ACCEPTANCE,” which was a response article to Carolyn Hall’s “6 THINGS I DON’T UNDERSTAND ABOUT THE FAT ACCEPTANCE MOVEMENT.”  The article has almost 600 comments – which are incredibly interesting, provocative and informative all at the same time.

As a former morbidly-obese woman (311+ lbs), I am incredibly sensitive to the bias and stigma against overweight people. However, I struggle with the terms and ideaologies that are core to the Fat Acceptance movement.

Today’s discussion will feature a panel of smart, intelligent folks from both sides of the table discussing the ideas and issues.  My aim is to keep the discussion respectful and moderated.  Interested in being on the panel?  Please email me at: info@divataunia.com.

NO RADIO TONIGHT: AND HERE’S WHY

25 Sep

Hello Lovelies!

So I’ve been trying like heck to balance my new jobs and my wls work and radio program, but I’ve been failing miserably at it.  There’s just not enough hours in the day!

Producing a radio program is a LOT of work.  Without constant attention to detail, coordination, quality guests, products, and information – it’s pointless. I don’t want to get in the habit of doing a show “just to do it.”  I have more respect for my listeners than that, and I want to make sure that I respect people’s time and support.

It really requires such a tremendous amount of time and energy that I know right now, I cannot sustain it.  And therefore, I’m going to postpone doing any additional radio programs for just a bit.

The good news is that I’m still going to be doing LOTS of promotions and giveaways, so the blog is going to be much more active than usual.  I have some amazing companies running some great promotional giveaways here and on The Dress Addict, so I hope you’ll bookmark and come back often! :)

Lastly, I’m considering opening up The Backstage Pass Radio Program to become more of a “network.”  My plan is to come back on air in either November and December, but with an entirely different topic theme:   music, voice, singing, and music education.  I’ll also continue focusing on my love of fashion, so the new programming will be a combination of the two.

What I’d like to do is get some great new hosts to do their own regular weekly program on MY Backstage Pass Radio network.  That means TONS more new shows and content for listeners and the Backstage Pass Radio becomes a network of programming rather than one specific show.

If you think you have a great on-air personality and topic angle, please contact me and let me know you’d be interested in being a host on the network.  I’ll be happy to give you more information.

For now, my time and energy is being spent on my first love(s):  music and teaching music.   The new direction will be bringing a new blog, website, and lots of exciting new ideas.  I hope you’ll stick around for them!  And as always, thank you, thank you, thank you for your continued support.  I’m very lucky to have such a great network of colleagues and friends.

Cheers,

SAME DAY, NEW TIME! 9pm EST

21 Jun

Recently, I’ve signed on as Voice & Piano Faculty at The Real School of Music.  I’m absolutely loving my new job, and lucky to be able to do what I love!  It does present a scheduling issue for me as I teach pretty close to air time, so I’ve decided to push back the show another hour (to make sure I can get home for air time) and start the program at 9:00pm EST.  The show will still air on Monday nights, just at a slightly later hour.

Please be sure to bookmark the URL at www.backstagepassradio.com and make note of the new time:  9:00pm EST.   Thanks for all of your continued support!
