I was on another blog earlier , one of my daily reads . And a girl posted a comment saying something a long the lines of ”is it wrong for me to want to wake up one day and be gorgeous and smart and funny and flirty and adventurous and skinny skinny skinny?” and it made me sad for her . I answered her back with some words of encouragement . She was no doubt a young girl and I hate that she thinks just bc shes fat , that she cant be the things she wants to be . Being fat (or thin for that matter) should not stop you from doing anything you want to do in life . Im fat , there is no doubt . But I do tons of things that are normally viewd as ”thin ppl” things to do . I do yoga , I surf , I hike , hunt , fish , can do a flip off solid ground , I wear a bikini to the beach , lay out , RUN around and play with my kids , my dog , my hubby 😉 , I live an active and full and insanely happy life and my FAT has never kept me from doing any of it . I dont know why ppl have it in there head that if there fat , they are held back from being the person they want to be . STOP IT ! Just stop that kinda of thinking right now ! You can do what ever it is you want to do in life . The only thing stopping you is YOU . Not your weight , or other ppl and what they might think , not this or that or whatever else you think is stopping you . The only thing that stops me from doing what I wanna do ? Honestly . MONEY . LOL ! Lordy , if I had unlimited resources , Id be doing SO many things . You can be who you want to be , rather you are fat or not . You can be gorgeous , you can be flirty and funny and the life of the party . You can be THAT girl/guy . Trust me . Never be afraid to be exactly who you are . Life is to damn short for that !

I find that the older I get , the more I wear what I really *want* to . My style does not nessasaraly have to mimic every fashion mag. out there and I dont have to look like my friends . What I have on today is totally mis-matched , but I LOVE the look it gives and I love the way I feel in it . TRUE to myself . I love this outfit . Its the 1st time that I have worn these pieces together and Im sure to do it again bc its one of those outfits I just feel amazing in for some reason . 🙂
Tube Top ~ Torrid
Shrug ~ Torrid
Board shorts ~ Goodies
Shoes ~ BCBG via Thrift
I get tons of views everyday , but no comments . Does my blog just suck that bad , ya’ll ??
I have never really thought that Crystal Renn qualified as ”plus size” . She is just average , thin to me . Dont get me wrong . I adore her as a model . She’s an amazing talent and she is most def. gorgeous , but plus size , she aint . Especially lately . In my opinion , I think that she has relapsed with her eating disorder . It bothers me that so many other bloggers are so infatuated with her , to be honest , bc I dont think she is a good ”role model” . I hope that she is well , but with such a dramatic weight loss , I honestly dont think she is . This is one of the latest photos of her and she looks emaciated to me .
”So anyway, yes, I think I’d be grossed out if I had to watch two characters with rolls and rolls of fat kissing each other … because I’d be grossed out if I had to watch them doing anything. To be brutally honest, even in real life, I find it aesthetically displeasing to watch a very, very fat person simply walk across a room — just like I’d find it distressing if I saw a very drunk person stumbling across a bar or a heroine addict slumping in a chair.”
This is just PART of the disgusting display that this woman rambled on about . You can read the rest here .. http://www.marieclaire.com/sex-love/dating-blog/overweight-couples-on-television . Who in there right mind would say something like this ??? Honestly ! She goes on to say something about having a few friends that could be called ”plump” or something like that , as if that was going to make it better , not to mention makes a point to say that shes NOT a weight bigot . Um ..HELLO ! Did you just hear yourself , lady ??? YES , YES YOU ARE A WEIGHT BIGOT ! For her to think this to herself if bad enough , but for her to actually let such crap fall out of her mouth !! Oh , heaven help us . I will NEVER pick up another one of these magazines and neither will anyone else I know . I can promise you that ! I just have no use for that kinda of ignorance and stupidity !
Ok , Im just wondering . What do you consider your pants actually FITTING ? I know that Im an 18, but when I put on my jeans , they give me da muffin top , then stretch out and fit great . Now , that being said , a size bigger which is a 20 seems not to be much different , really and any bigger than that , falls off of me . What are your standards of fit ? What makes a pair of pants ”fit” you or not ? I was just curious as to how other ppl gage this . 🙂 Happy Monday , all !
Ok , I have to admit I get a ”fat is the true hotness” attitude . LOL . I honestly dont have anything again those who are naturally thin , its the ppl who count every calorie and work out way more than any one person should that I get like this towards . I feel like these ppl just dont ”get it” . I guess you could say that I get on my ”high horse” about being fat and happy and knowing good and damn well that all those ppl who are trying to morph themselves into something there not are doing it all in vain . Im NOT talking about getting lots of good , healthy excercise . Im talking about ppl who are fat by natural build and trying there best to be thin by working themselves half to death and starving all the damn time . Which ANY diet in my opinion is . If you step back and REALLY look at a diet , its just a boxed , packaged , socially exceptible eating disorder and it just seems nuts to me . Why is it so hard for ppl to except that we come in all different sizes . That if you are eating healthy and staying active , you can still be *gasp* fat . Fat and in excellent health I might add . I think things that are down right snobbish sometimes . lol . I get around my family , half of whom are on a diet , bc we are all fat by nature and there complaining about how many calories they ate that day and I think things like ”arnt you smarter than this ? I mean , REALLY ?” . I love my family with all my heart , but when it comes to the facts , they just dont wanna hear it and it makes me nuts . I get the ”Im fat and most def. hotter then you” thoughts when some super thin girl is givein me the stank eye while Im eating a funnel cake at the fair . In my mind I know she’s hating me bc Im EATING and Im fat , hot and happy about it . LOL . Or so my snobbish thought process goes , anyway . Im not normally a snob , in any sense of the word , but I catch myself thinking these things from time to time . I swear its like I have to golden ticket . I have found the secret to being happy . Know your mind , love your body and get on with all that living you’ve got to do !! If having that golden ticket mentality makes me a bit of a fat snob , then so be it ! lol
