Ok so I have been busy, busy, busy. SizeXchange is reaching final stages and I have been run off my heels getting things together and ready for launch. But aside from my busy work life….I have also been partaking on an increasingly demanding social life….hehe I love it of course but gee is tough being popular. In this current flabvlog “WeightLess Choices” I am talking about my latest conquest and the joys of having a countless number of ‘choices’ available to me since I have been losing weight. But the first step to opening up those doors to a whole new world of ‘options’ & ‘choices’that come with weightlessness is choosing to lose the weight, sacrifices and all.
Awhile ago I did a guest FlabVlog for my mate Steph from Back in Skinny Jeans. In this guest post I talk about the importance of non-scale-victories when you are dieting. I know you have heard me say it before…”Its not ALL about the scales”… and Proudly, I am already living my own back in skinny jeans dream. In this guest post I explain why.
Anyhow, I thought it would be good to post it here too…so
Hi guys, since my last post I have been having some serious discussions with Stephanie from Back in Skinny Jeans about the prevalence of fat discrimination both blatant and subtle. Whether it is coming at you from the direction of well-meaning family and/or friends, from the workplace, or the retail shop where you are purchasing that new outfit. Fat Discrimination is alive and well. As fat people we can’t get away from it…as long as we are fat, people will always have their preconceived ideas of WHO we are simply based on WHAT we are.
With this in mind, in this Flabvlog, I also discuss the importance of watching how us dieters relate to, encourage, and challenge each other There is a fine line between constructive interrelations and destructive ones. So watch above and please comment I would love to hear your views or own personal experiences of fat discrimination.
Not having to always search for two seats together when riding a bus!
As I have mentioned, I am in the process of getting all the cartoons together for my book. My caricaturist Eric Jones is soooo talented. I tell him exactly what I want in the cartoons and he churns them out pretty much exactly as I had envisioned…often with 2 or three amendments of course…lol! I never imagined I would hear myself telling anyone…’Make me FATTER! I look too slim’ Usually when someone is drawing you or taking photo’s we are after the most flattering angles/lighting instead of making us look MORE like beached whales.
Its hard for him, I know, cause he is working off pictures of me NOW. When I am really after representations of what I was at 354lbs when it was ALL happening BABY!
I thought I’d share this one cause its one of my favorites. And yes, FYI the cartoons are based on real life experiences…fortunately, I never saw the old lady on that bus route ever again…I wonder why?
