Meet TC Currie
TC Currie is a technologist with the heart of an artist who’s parlayed her wide range of experiences into lighting the path for others.
Today TC’s transformational poetry is about being on the path to becoming your authentic self. And her personal essays have won the Solas Travel award and been included in two Chicken Soup of the Soul books: The Power of Gratitude, and Be You: 101 Stories of Affirmation, Determination and Female Empowerment (newly published in 2021).
TC’s newest book, Take the Easy Path: 10 #GroundingGuidelines for a Better You is about the life-changing lessons she learned on her own journey to health while dumping diet culture along the way.
TC now leads a delightfully eclectic life as a writer, speaker, poet, body positivity activist and occasional lingerie model. Remember, “if you’re not having fun, you’re not doing it right!”
I first wrote the Grounding Guidelines that Take the Easy Path was built on in 2015.
At a sedentary 325 pounds, my annual physical showed my blood sugar, cholesterol, and blood pressure all way over target. It was time for serious change. But I was definitely, definitely NOT doing another diet of cramming denial and shame down my throat until I hit some number on a scale. I was tired of obsessing about food, only to watch the weight return, again and again, bringing with it more guilt and shame.
I broke down every previous attempt at getting healthy. The result is 10 Grounding Guidelines, which became talismans throughout my days, touchstones to reach out to when my path towards health hit the inevitable stumbling blocks.
After a year, my blood sugar dropped 100 points, my blood pressure dropped 40 points, and I’d lost 60 pounds. I had more energy as I incorporated new healthy behaviors, and I was happier because my inner critic was no longer policing my every move.
People around me took notice. “What is your secret?” As I shared my Grounding Guidelines, the responses were engaged. “No Comparisons” brought tears to the eyes of a friend struggling with self-acceptance. “No Shaming” gave several people pause as I talked about how I no longer beat myself up when I missed a workout or went on a cookie dough bender.
Join me on this journey and create your own #PathtoHealth.
Join me on this journey of transformation and acceptance as I work through my own #GroundingGuidelines to a healthier, happier, most authentically me, and how you can do the same.
