Embrace Your Body

 

And every single day, no matter how full or slim your body is. No matter how many so-called flaws and blemishes, embrace them all.  Embrace every single curve (or non curve), embrace and love every single part of you, because YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL, YOU ARE UNIQUE!

Being healthy is more important than what society claims beautiful to be.  Eat well, Exercise well,  Sleep well, Be well.

Have a beautifully blessed day!

Heavier & Happier…

Michelle Gibson, a full figured woman who runs circles around her thiner counterparts, teaches 10 classes a week to full figured women.

Well it’s March 1st ladies, the last 2 months have flown by and it’s time to start shaping up to fit into the beautiful bold prints that are going to be around this spring/summer.  Before you know it, May will be here and you’ll realize you haven’t shed those extra pounds from Thanksgiving and Christmas.

I found this inspiring article in the Washington Post via Facebook a couple of days ago and thought it was worth posting. You’ll understand my post title once you read the article.  One of my many reasons for starting a blog was to help women no matter who they are feel good about themselves.  In my opinion, everyone is fabulous whether you are a size 4 or a size 20, it’s all about how you carry yourself, and more importantly are you healthy?  Being thin, does not instantly make you fabulous, or gives you an instant ticket to good health.  In the same token, being overweight is not good for your health and as you already know can lead to various problems to your overall well-being.

Dress appropriately for your body type, no matter what size you are, there is no excuse for being sloppy with your appearance.  You never really see articles posted in newspapers/magazines where they show real women working out, most print ads show size 4 models without any body fat lifting weights… yeah OK.  This article demonstrates the fact that you can be fit and agile no matter what your size and real women do work out.

Please take the time to read this article, it really is a good read and start your workout regimen NOW, even if it’s only walking for 30 minutes 3 times a week, every little bit counts.

Happy reading and work that body!

Leave Adele Alone…

In Daily Musings on February 10, 2012 at 1:28 pm

I know I said I had a deadline, but this came across one of my news feeds and I  just had to ask…

Why is everyone so pressed regarding Adele’s weight? Is it because she is not the so-called perfect size 0-4? I think she looks beautiful and she knows how to dress herself and look fantastic as well as fabulous.  If she’s happy with how she looks then what’s the problem?  I love this quote from her in an interview with People Magazine “I’ve never wanted to look like models on the cover of magazines. I represent the majority of women and I’m very proud of that“.  Here’s another quote from her which will be in this weeks issue of People “I haven’t felt insecure about my figure.  I wasn’t brought up like that”. My question is… Why does she have to explain herself? I don’t see anyone questioning Giselle about her size (the Brazilian model, married to Tom Brady for those of you who don’t know whom I’m referring to).

 I’ve been reading for some time, how she has a beautiful voice, beautiful face, but she needs to lose weight.  Doesn’t that sound like a back-handed compliment to you?? It does to me.  I’ve read some nasty comments on Twitter and other social media sites, from people who I feel have their own personal body issues to deal with.  As far as I’m concerned she’s beautiful, talented, confident, successful, nominated for a Grammy (or Grammies) and… Getting Paid!!! So leave her alone.  Just yesterday Karl Largerfeld gave his 2 cents, saying she had a pretty face, but she’s a “little too fat”! only to have to turn around less than 24 hours later and apologize and tell the world he’s a huge fan. He now says his comment was taken out of context.  Like I said before, leave her alone!  Adele has no desire to be a size zero, so again I say… LEAVE HER ALONE! Love you Adele!

Watch Adele live at the Grammys on Sunday February 12th.  BTW: Click on Adele’s name above (in orange) to see a trailer of her live at The Royal Albert Hall in London.

Remember, women are beautiful in all shapes and sizes, it’s all about how you carry yourself, how you feel about yourself, it’s about CONFIDENCE!!! Work it!

     

A quick capture of Adele  having a little fun! it’s on a repetitive loop, but it’s cute anyway.  http://28.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lz07ksWVri1qfqf4lo5_r2_250.gif
