When it comes to weight, everyone’s journey is different. Recently, Actor, Curve Model, Podcaster and Body Positivity Advocate, Hayley Hasselhoff, teamed with Plenity on a nationwide satellite media tour to discuss her own health journey and some simple tips that can help people reach their goals.

Ahead of her 30th birthday, Actor, Curve Model and Body Positivity Advocate Hayley Hasselhoff, on defining your own weight journey—and loving your body every step of the way as she enters her next decade

As someone in the public eye since the age of 14, Hayley knows firsthand that weight does not define who you are. According to Hayley, “You can love your body just the way it is, and you can also love your body while working to achieve your goals.”

Coming out of the pandemic, Hayley wanted to focus on being more health-minded and set personal goals, igniting a newfound health journey, and ultimately leading her to Plenity.

Plenity is a prescription weight management product, made from naturally derived building blocks and designed to mimic the physical properties of vegetables to help you feel fuller so you can eat less. Plenity® is indicated to aid weight management in adults with excess weight or obesity, a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 25–40 kg/m², when used in conjunction with diet and exercise. Plenity helps you feel fuller so you can feel more satisfied with smaller portions.

While size doesn’t define your worth and happiness doesn’t come from a specific size, the way we take care of our own personal health is of utter importance. Nobody should feel shame for having different or changing health goals throughout their lives.

As Hayley enters her 30s, it has become clear that people evolve over time and their bodies evolve with them. Instead of allowing ourselves to live in a state of self-judgment, we should appreciate and shamelessly be able to say that our health goals will evolve with us over time as well.
