Perfectly imperfect women inspiring others to  re-shape their thinking so they can re-think their shape.

If you could book a presentation that could improve the quality of life

This is not about obesity. It’s about self-esteem for all women.

 I have been married to a plus size woman for 23 years. I have felt her jubliation and pain as she has struggled with her weight. I can tell her a 1000 times a day she is beautiful and she won’t hear me but let someone say one negative thing and she hears it 1000 times.  

Low self-esteem and self-worth not only negatively affect personal growth, they also cripple professional prospects. Research has shown time and time again that people with higher self-worth have higher salaries. Self-esteem may even affect your salary as much as cognitive abilities do.

It's being called the "confidence gap" and results in women holding themselves back from earning their full potential. Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg has said   
“There are still days I wake up feeling like a fraud, not sure I should be where I am.”

Is your body image causing your self esteem to suffer?
 From ages 19-52, sizes 6-24, every woman featured in this presentation had issues with their bodies and have experienced sexual , mental and physical abuse, dysfunctional families, anorexia/ bulimia, cancer and attempted suicide. 

The photo's helped them re-assess their self-worth and raised their self-esteem. Their stories can help others.

20 is the average age for onset of Bulimia
91% of all women are unhappy with their bodies
95% of people with eating disorders are between the ages of 12 and 25.
10% of those with an eating disorder will seek professional help
1 in 5 anorexia deaths is by suicide

This program connects with your audience and creates a call to action that  can encourage women to seek help in whatever form that manifests.  By partnering with your organization,  the work we do together would be life changing.

The women I photographed have experienced
It's for college women, business women or any woman who would like to maybe try on that dress someone said she didn't look good wearing. Encourange them to maybe  change her makeup or cut her hair.   

It's for any woman who needs the tools and information to help her finally set her own self-worth.

This topic is very personal to me. (Click on the "How did this come about and who is Lewis Chaney" tab to find out why)
