Interesting Stuff

Amen sista!  While I don't think I could be as brave, I'm totally inspired by her acceptance of her body, extra curves and all.  So awesome!

This is such a great informational article, and it actually inspired me to create a new page for transformations that have always and will continue to motivate me.  Some of the people were twice my size to begin with, and are now half my size.  If they can achieve such an amazing feat, so can I, and so can you.

Well, I cant say that I will follow his advice, or even test it for myself, but it is still an interesting concept.  My favorite part of the article, which is actually relevant to any person who is more aware of their eating habits, is, "It's our choices that make us fat, not McDonalds."

Go girl!  This is my goal.  One day I want to be able to look back and say, "Half of me is gone."  She looks fabulous and I am so inspired by her.

Such an awesome message.  I wish I had learned to love myself at 19, the way this girl has managed to.  I have spent years and years of beating myself up over all my flaws, scratch that, my self perceived flaws.  The only other thing I wished I had learned than to love myself, is to take care of myself and be healthy.  Had I learned that earlier in life, I wouldn't be where I am now.  But, you cant go back in time, there is only "now".

I love reading things like this.  It really makes you aware of how you could be doing so much more.  It also makes me truly appreciate my body, because while it is big, it is still mobile.  She truly inspires me to stop making excuses, buck up, and do it.  Say no to bad foods, and exercise.  It really is that easy.

This article is really shocking, but it also makes me realize that while I only see my problem of being overweight as my own, in reality another 2 billion people face the same issue.  Which also makes me wonder why people are so ridiculously cruel and judgmental towards fat people.  Literally 1/3 of the world's population has a larger waistline, so what purpose does it serve to belittle someone because of it?  Makes no sense to me.  Steer clear of the comment section on that one...

I saw this video and it was an amazing inspiration.  In fact, her reasons for losing weight are some of the things I've always been aware of.  I'm no dummy, and I do realize that there are probably plenty of people out there that refer to me as "the fat girl".  I'm tired of that, and while they don't do it to my face, it still pains me to know that is how people simply describe me.

I saw this article and thought the girl writing it reminded me a lot of, well, me.  I am praying that my skin wont have the same fate, but it seems pretty inevitable.  I have to keep reminding myself that healthy living is worth an "apron of skin".

I also saw this article that helped remind me that it isn't all about looks.  Nobody is perfect, and to aspire to attain perfection is silly, and such a waste of time.  No matter where I end up when this journey is all said and done, I'll be happy with my flaws.  They show the battle I've won to get there.  This physical transformation will be the most amazing accomplishment of my life.  I can't wait to get there.
