When was the last time you said “It has to be me?”

You know, that feeling where you know in your gut:

“This is what I want to do!”

And, you just go for it!

Welcome to IT HAS TO BE ME!

I’m Tess Masters, The Blender Girl.

And, I’m getting the skinny from people who are smashing their fears and doubts to go from dreaming to doing.

Tess Masters with Blender


This podcast was inspired by the women in my 60-DAY RESET.

Every week, we meet and get real.

We talk about what holds us back from going after what we want.

It's the "I'm not enough story."

How we feel about ourselves is the foundation for every choice we make.

So, all of the conversations I have as a health coach lead back to self-love.

When you tap into that you get really clear about what you want.

But, nobody can make it happen for you.

You've gotta feel like, "It has to be me!"

Tess Smiling


The path to getting what we want is messy.

And, we can fall flat on our faces.

But, it's all part of what makes us who we are!

So, join me every Thursday, where our guests take us inside their  journey so we can celebrate the mess, and the magic, and learn from it together.

Let's dive in, get fired up, and go after your next “It Has To Be Me!”

"I can't rave enough about the Skinny60 program. The food is absolutely incredible. It is such an amazing feeling to know there was something out there that could offer me relief besides all of the meds I was taking. I’m sleeping better, I have more energy, and my skin is better. My inflammation and pain is down. I haven’t had a Lupus flare in two years, and I take less meds now. And, I’ve lost 38 pounds!  This totally changed my life."

"This is by far the most supportive program I have ever been in. Tess and her dietitians want you to succeed,  and they hold your hand through the entire experience. Because I was eating good food, my face cleared up, the inflammation in my body disappeared, my energy levels got much higher, and I didn’t experience the depression from menopause any more. I felt like I got back to being myself - the “happy-go-lucky” Janis. I really love the “Good, Better, Best, Not Perfect” philosophy of Skinny60, and now use that at work and other areas of my life."

"I was so blessed to have so much support from Tess, the dietitians, and all of the wonderful people in the program during my cancer treatment. A year later I feel fantastic, and my medical team declared me “cancer-free”. This program helped me improve every aspect of my health. My doctors asked me what I was doing to make such amazing progress and changes in such a short period of time! This has truly been a transformational experience."

"This has been a life-changing experience. I lost 38 pounds, my BMI is down, I'm off my blood pressure medication, I have more energy, I sleep better at night, and I feel good about myself. I have learned so much, and every recipe was absolutely delicious. You can’t lose with the knowledge, support, and guidance from Tess. She brings it to you in such a loving, giving way. The time she spends with you every step of the way to ensure you get amazing results is absolutely priceless."

"This experience has really given me a new life! I’m sleeping so well, have so much energy, sugar cravings are gone, triglycerides down over 50 points, cholesterol is better, and I lost weight. The recipes are so delicious. I’ve never tasted so many unbelievable flavors. Tess is such a great coach, encourages you, and just wants you to be your best and grow. This is not just a nutrition program. It’s a reset for your whole being. I am so much more confident, and feel like I can do anything! At 65, I feel like I am finally starting to bloom."
