About Marla

It’s so nice to meet you!  My name is Marla Hamilton, and I’m the creator of Your Full Plate.

I live in Astoria, New York with my handsome husband, Jonny – we just got married in October of 2012.  I work full time for Gnosis Chocolate and like most women, time crunched is a very familiar feeling to me!

I’ve had health on the brain for over a decade now.  I’ve had the following experiences, all of which make me eager to help you:

  • Losing forty pounds
  • Struggling with disordered eating from starvation to bingeing
  • Gaining back forty pounds plus more
  • Avoiding friends and family out of shame about my body
  • Feeling hideously ugly and unlovable
  • Feeling like a total freak and hopeless about my ability to ever be normal about food
  • Reading a million and one self help books and doing massive amounts of soul searching
  • Learning how to deeply love and accept myself no matter what I look like
  • Finding a way to eat and exercise that involves no deprivation or insanity
  • Losing sixty pounds
  • Maintaining it easily and joyfully for over four years.

Want to know how I did all that?  You’re in luck, because the only thing I find more fun than listening to inspirational audiobooks and drinking special cleansing teas (shut UP, I am who I am!)(I got that from an inspirational audiobook) is sharing the beautiful body of knowledge that’s gotten me here.

The most important thing you need to know about me is that I have every faith in the power of the part of you that knows exactly how to handle your issues: weight, time management, self esteem, whatever.

To reach me, email yourfullplate@gmail.com.  Thank you so much for reading!
