Are you constantly battling your body and your weight? Is it hurting your mental health? How can you find your body's natural size?
In this episode of Hilary Topper on Air, Hilary speaks with Heather Mathes, author of Paid to Be Perfect: The Secret to Finding Your Perfect – A guide to eating, looking, and feeling your best while maintaining YOUR BODY’S natural size at ANY size or ANY age. Learn from Heather what your natural size is and how to find it, her thoughts on diet culture, and mental health. In addition, hear about her experiences in the modeling world.
Heather Mathes began modeling in 1988. She continued modeling professionally after graduating from Ohio State University with a B.S. in Marketing in 1993 before signing her first contract fit modeling with a major national retailer in 1996. After a ten consecutive year fit modeling contract, as well as modeling for other companies outside of her contract, she retired to become a mom in 2008. She then came out of retirement in 2016 at the age of 46 to continue fit modeling for the same company at the exact measurements she was in her twenties, not because she was under contract, but because she had developed health and wellness methods that kept her weight from fluctuating. She did this unconsciously as these methods became her norm. These methods and more are what she shares in her book, Paid to Be Perfect: The Secret to Finding Your Perfect. She lives in Columbus, OH with her husband, her son, and her dog.
Heather shares stories about her own experiences in the fit modeling world, includes insider secrets into the fashion world where she was paid to be “perfect”, and offers tips and expert advice for anyone who wants to find and maintain their body’s natural size. She is relatable and informal in sharing what is possible for anyone to achieve. A guide to eating, looking, and feeling your best while maintaining your body's natural size at any size or any age!
