Here’s an excerpt from my colleague Pidge Meade’s solo show about her journey to lose weight that I thought you would enjoy. If you’ve tried to lose weight and done battle with yo-yo dieting then I’m sure you’ll be able to relate to it .
As we know here at Move Beyond, the journey to lose weight and get your figure back is an emotional one, fraught with set-backs and temptation, which Pidge recounts in her own very real but also comic way.
The show has been described as “A heart-pounding, hair-raising, society-skewering, weight-loss rollercoaster ride, spinning between ten different characters, while tenderly and hilariously shining a spotlight on the merry-go-round of yo-yo dieting”.
If your based near the San Francisco area then make sure you go and see the show, it’s both deeply touching and hilarious!
