About Me

Welcangieblogome to Buxom Bodies In Motion! Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Angela Johnson, I am a wife of over 30 years, and a mother of 3 adult children. I am a very busy business owner of a very popular restaurant in the greater Los Angeles area, and guess what……?  I’m FAT!! I’ve been a “big girl” most of my life, and that’s alright with me (sometimes) however, I can be very sedentary at times and get exhausted trying to fight the battle of the bulge!

I love to dance, and exercise, and move around, bad knees, tight back and all, and whatever else ails me! However, whenever I take up a dance class, yoga class, Zumba class or whatever, (with the exception of a cooking class!) I am always the largest one in the class. That doesn’t stop me, but I must admit I do get a bit intimidated by the “skinny ones” and because I am competitive by nature, I sure don’t allow them to show me up! Now…..the next day I can barely walk, BUT I finished the class with flying colors and there is a good chance I won’t see those same people anymore so they don’t have know that!

With that being said, I have created a dance therapy class for us “Buxom Bodies” so that women who are at least 75 – 100lbs or more overweight can come to a place where there is no judgment, no diets to follow, no eating guidelines and no rules other than to have a good time through dance and where we all look pretty much the same and have more in common with one another than your average class. Even if you have to sit in a chair and move your arms around, that’s movement and there is a place for YOU! There is no flying across the room and crazy body contortions, just simple, fun, sexy, freestyle moves!

Buxom Bodies In Motion, will have free flowing talks about health and fitness, which may include, but not be limited to, how to make better food choices, the way we view our bodies, self-care, mental wellness, etc. We will offer cooking classes, and clothing exchanges as we fluctuate in size from time to time, and so much more. Oh yeah, and we might lose some poundage along the way, or maybe not, but the journey will be a fun one!

Life is too short to be unhappy and unhealthy, so let’s do something about it and get moving. Nobody can move like us and nobody can move us, BUT US.  So what are you waiting for, check out our schedule of classes and let’s get these BUXOM BODIES IN MOTION.

Yours in Movement,
