Being worthy in ALL sizes with Hunter McGrady
Imagine losing a sibling in an accident and then giving birth to your first baby a month later ????
That is what happened to Hunter McGrady…
She was the first plus size woman to appear on the cover of a bridal magazine, the curviest model to appear in Sports Illustrated, and one of the first curvy models to walk New York Fashion Week runways in 2017.
…but this past year, Hunter lost her younger brother in an accident and a month later gave birth to her first baby (a boy! ????). She reveals what it was like living in the season that encapsulated the ultimate grief right alongside the ultimate joy.
In this episode we’re also talking about what it took to:
???? Break boundaries of what type of body can be seen in media,
???? Launch her own clothing line All Worthy with QVC. (This line ranges from an extra extra small to a 5x).
???? Go from being a size two model to a size 20 model.
???? Make it in the world of modeling and fashion.
From Sports Illustrated to sweet mama, Hunter is getting raw and real with us.

THANK YOU TO OUR SPONSOR: OPEN
If you know me, you know that meditation is a key pillar of my wellness routine in addition to movement and more recently breathwork, which is why I was so excited when my friend T introduced me to Open this past summer. Open offers meditation, breathwork and movement like yoga and pilates to help support you in reaching a whole new level of mind-body wellness. You can access classes live or pre-recorded right from your device in whatever space feels most comfortable for you.
Exercises are anywhere from 5 minutes to 45-minutes and are paired with the sounds of award-winning musicians which just takes everything to the next level.
All the teachers ooze this supportive, nurturing and transcendent vibe. I swear I finish Manoj’s meditations and feel like a whole new person. The sound of his voice and his guiding words seem to sweep away fear and overthinking so that I can tap into a softer way of being. Ally is this force with the incredible capacity to hold space for you just as you are while also calling you forward into your greatest strength.
All the teachers are great. The platform is brilliant.
