The Bigger You Are, The Better

I'll bet you're not used to hearing that. But for the purpose of workshops I created just for YOU, that is the case. My name is Gabriela Falarz. I am a large woman. At first glance, some people might call me: disgusting; gross; ugly; lazy; morbidly obese. But these are the adjectives I prefer: Wonderful. Beautiful. Kind. Caring. Amazing. And YOU are every one of those adjectives as well.

Have you been struggling with your weight for years? Have you been on countless diets, starving yourself in the hope that it will work this time? Have you been hypnotized and bombarded by images of thin, top-heavy models in bikinis, and used them as a signpost for how you should look? Are you tired of trying to please the masses, of trying to meet their self-serving demands? Are you ready to take charge of your own life and start living it for the most important person in your life -- YOU?

For far too long, fat (overweight/chubby/plump/full-figured/Rubenesque, whichever euphemism you prefer) people -- women especially -- have been treated as if they are less worthy, less deserving, and less important than everybody else. I, personally, have had enough of those negative messages. I created these workshops designed SPECIFICALLY for women like me: women who are overweight, who have battled with their weight for years, and who have come to the realization that it's what is inside us that's most important.

It can be very difficult to navigate in today's world, where we are constantly bombarded by the message that we are not acceptable, that we are not attractive enough, that we are not good enough. My workshops will help you to discover how amazing and gifted you truly are, to sift through the lies we have been told to find the truth, and to fulfill your highest potential.

Please join me at my first series of workshops, coming in early 2011, and learn how to celebrate who you are. We'll laugh, we'll support each other, and we'll learn how to bring out the best in ourselves and let our light shine on the world.

You are beautiful, you are worthy, you are amazing, you are wonderful! It's time to finally love and embrace yourself exactly the way you are.

Stay tuned for the exact date and location of my first series of workshops. Can't wait to meet you!
