Sophie Dahl was once known as an international model who brought full-figured models into the spotlight but now she is known for being an author, a cook, and her slim figure. She is the successful author of three books, most notably "the Delicious Miss Dahl" on which a six part BBC television series was created based on these recipes. What is so intriguing about the Sophie Dahl story is that she made fashion shows literally bow down to public pressure and make her a major part of their shows as a full-figured model but it seems she was not entirely comfortable with that image or always had the goal to lose weight which she has done very successfully.
When a person now views an image of Sophie Dahl they see a woman who is far removed from her past full-figure model status and who is now a celebrity cook and author married to a successful jazz musician several inches shorter than her. Sophie Dahl has transformed herself from a full-figured model into a woman whose figure more resembles a healthy swimsuit model and is nowhere close to that of a full-figured model.
Sophie Dahl's weight loss has gained her an even bigger following because she was able to attribute the weight loss not solely to her exercise regimen but to cooking and eating better but not starving herself. In this sense she has remained a role model to all women who struggle with their weight and created a loyal group of followers to her recipes.
The transformation of Sophie Dahl in the public eye is one of the most impressive that one will ever come across because she went from being a role model for full-figured women, a group of women who were once basically unspoken for on the fashion runways and in the fashion magazines to that of celebrity author and chef in a slimmer body.
Sophie Dahl is proof that if a person is willing to change than anything and everything is possible.
