2 things.. Ok!
1. I LOVE my eyes. I’m always complimented on their color
2. I like my height :) 5’2” is perfect, I think!
1. My work ethic is stinking awesome!
2. And so are my leadership skills. Just saying. Lol!
So many feels. I cannot believe that first picture was me this February, like, ten months ago. WHO IS THAT PERSON I DON’T EVEN. And that was after I’d already lost eleven pounds, I was 219 at the beginning of January.
I’m having some very complicated reactions to this, most of which are related to the fact that I was in complete denial about the extent of my obesity and about how I looked and felt. I had some frightening health issues that I wrote off to situational stress - I think it’s fairly telling that I have just as much stress in my life now but the scary symptoms have pretty much disappeared. I haven’t had a migraine in months. I used to get heart palpitations and pains in my left arm at night, which I told myself was normal for someone with my stress level. When I looked in the mirror at my starting weight I honestly didn’t think I was fat enough for my health problems to be weight-related, but now, looking at this, I’m wondering if I was on crack.
I fully recognise the fitblr community’s role in waking me up - I appreciate each one of you every single day. I now work out regularly and make food choices I’m proud of, and you people were definitely instrumental in inspiring me to make those changes.
Fit for life, forever grateful. ♥
I woke up at 4:30 am! But I’m slightly dizzy and nauseous.. So Idk if that’s such a good idea…
This is for the “body acceptance” blogs who have been criticizing me this week, accusing me of being pro-thin, of body-shaming heavy bodies by drawing fit people, and of not accepting my body as it is by wanting to lose weight.
First of all, I’m surprised that you’re surprised that I make posts that involve weight loss. News flash: This is a weight loss blog. I am trying to lose weight and get fit. I have been, for years, and there’s nothing wrong with that. It doesn’t mean I hate my body, or worse, myself, so please spare me your you-should-accept-your-body for-what-it-is preaching, because I already do. I accept that I’m fat, but that doesn’t mean I can’t or won’t do something about it, if that’s what I feel like doing. Don’t label me the villain for wanting something different from what you prefer. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to be smaller, the same way there’s nothing wrong with staying big. Aren’t changing bodies also included in the body acceptance movement?
People ask me what my opinion on fat acceptance is. To be honest, I have none. I myself am fat but personally, I don’t need a movement dedicated to my fat self. I like myself and I can’t see how other people’s opinions should matter much after that. I don’t need a subcategory of body acceptance, the general one works fine for me. If it’s genuine body acceptance, why must there be an adjective before it?
We’re all different and so are our preferences, so the key to keeping peace is to live and let live. If you disagree with my choices concerning my body and lifestyle, don’t look at my blog and don’t follow people who reblog my stuff because chances are, those people have the same preferences as I. I’m not shoving my opinions down your throats, so don’t shove yours down mine.
AMEN! PREACH IT SISTER!
Oh my gosh! I love this blog so much because she DOESN’T body shame!!!
