With grit and determination, she managed to rise like the phoenix, more comfortable, confident, and beautiful — inside and out —than ever before.


And you can too.

In My Fat Pants Don't Fit: A Mostly True Story of Divorce, Weight Loss, and Finally Finding Self-Love, Dina Marie shares the moments that shaped her journey.

And she shares the ninety-day plan that gave her the power to choose,  create her own happiness, replace regret with acceptance, and to ultimately discover self-love.

Many women brave the world of self-examination. Few, like Dina Marie, choose to generously share their stories so that other women can have the opportunity to live their best lives, sooner rather than later. Her book leaves us with not only hope for the well-being of our own lives, but also a framework for making lasting change to the way we choose to value ourselves. That makes it pretty special.”

Acceptance and self-love come from a place of deep awareness of how our life experiences have shaped us. Dina's relatable, raw, and emotional journey drew me in from the very first page. She proves that although we are all products of our past experiences, it’s up to each one of us to choose whether we are victims or victors. This book will show you how to become a victor.
