Hi and Welcome to Big Matters
Support, information and friendship
Obesity and plus size are now words that are everyday part of daily life be it on TV in magazines or online. The reality is as a nation we are getting bigger. For some this may mean a stone or two overweight and for many others it can be a whole lot more. Whether you are happy with your size or not, finding anything from good clothing to current information about health matters can be very time consuming and frustrating.The authorities are viewing the need for change but often there can be a negative image and little support. We want to centralise information and places to go for support as well as offer a positive approach.
Living as a bigger person can have many different ‘knock on’ effects. This can be your health, your happiness, your confidence or even your comfort. Our site is very much led by what you want to have on it and as a voice for the people who live daily with a weight problem. Whatever your age, weight or background we want to hear from you either directly or share experiences Professionals - we welcome your input, suggestions and articles.

Obesity support is vital and there is not enough help for those wanting to lose weight. .Obesity is also rarely out the news and you may have seen/heard us discussing our opinion in the media - BBC Breakfast, BBC News, Radio 4, ITV news, Radio 5 live, BBC London, West Midlands, Shropshire and many other radio stations
