celebrity weight

When former fat celebrities lose weight no one says “Omg look at how low her cholesterol looks” “Wow low blood pressure looks great on her” or “She looks so much better without a heart attack” that’s not what people care about. And for one you can’t tell someone’s health by their weight anyway.

But, the main thing people focus on is how they look. “She looks so good now!″ “Wow they look so skinny, they look amazing” “Omg they’re smoking hot now” that’s the only thing I see. Fatphobics don’t care about health, they care about looks. They’re obsessed with seeing how people look when they’re skinny, and that’s it because our superficial society is obsessed with thinness and beauty.

I’ve seen people do it, every time a former fat or a former really fat celebrity loses weight. They only care about how they’ll look once they’re skinny, they don’t care about random people’s health, no one does.

I damn sure don’t concern my life with what the next person does with their body, so people need to stop kidding themselves, when they know they’re just fatphobic.

All of it makes me angry.

Don’t think about post-NHL-retirement Jack and the fine layer of chub that develops over his abs, and how his booty gets even better, and how Bitty can’t keep his eyes away from the jiggle now because this is evidence that Jack doesn’t need to keep such tight control over himself anymore. The nutrition plan has been relaxed. He’s able to live. And Bitty loves a boy who can eat.

The green tea diet

Hey!! I know I have been really bad with diet posts lately, and I’m sorry! I’ve been off track for so long and lost motivation due to school etc.

However! I’m not here to excuse myself. It’s time to talk about the green tea diet.

Because really, that’s some real stuff. Most of you I assume have already heard of all the great benefits green tea gives you, but if not, here’s a quick summary:

♦ It decreases your risk of getting several diseases, including cancer and HPV!

♦ It cleanses your body.

♦It can, in fact, make you smarter

♦ Slows down aging process! You’ll stay wrinkle free longer, haha

♦It boosts metabolism, therefore speeds up weight loss

Alright, sounds good eh? Green tea has pretty much unlimited health benefits but I’m going to tell you mainly about what it does as a weight loss helper.

First off: What is the green tea diet?
Simply, while on a diet you have to drink 2-5 cups a day of unsweetened green tea. Say, if you were to drink 5 cups a day, you drink one with or before breakfast, lunch, dinner, and 2 in-between meals.
This does not only speed up your metabolism, but it also makes you feel full for longer! And it will make you eat less during the current meal.

So, my personal experience:

I started drinking green tea a few weeks ago, one cup for breakfast and one right before bed. The cup i had with my breakfast actually made my appetite a lot lower. At lunch I didn’t crave anything other than say a small salad. I usually crave lots of fibre and sugar, lol.

The one before bed made me sleep a lot better. I felt so relaxed and refreshed, plus I was slimmer in the morning than usual! It’s true.

So to this day, I try to drink 2-3 cups a day, + I have something called a “detox day”. This works in the way that I have 5 cups of green tea in a day, and eat less than 500 cal that day. This is really great and I can actually feel what the green tea does to me. It sounds brutal, but it’s not bad. I choose to do it on a day where I’m not very active.

Green tea is great. But, there’s one thing you should be aware of; You’re stomach is going to growl, and you’ll go to the toilet a lot, and you’ll be filled with gas. Most likely. It doesn’t bother me too much but it’s not always that fun. It just shows that it really flushes out your toxins though, so it’s a good sign!

I personally definitely recommend green tea to play a huge role in your diet, because it’s crazily good, and it has so many benefits.

Questions? Don’t be afraid to give me an ask!

Hello 2017

Wearing  ✶  Lime Ricki Daisy Bralette and Daisy Ruched Bottom  ✶  Wotoos star shaped face tattoos 

It’s the first day of 2017 and warm enough already for a little splash in the pool! The beginning of the year is also fraught with the traditional onslaught of diet and weightloss ads in every corner you look, so I thought it would be timely to post some positive inspiration to help counter the toxicity that us fatties are routinely assaulted by around this time. The moment the year turns around, you see it screaming it you from billboards, newspapers and even browser ads. ‘New year, new you!’ ‘Resolve to be a skinny minnie this year!’ ‘Time for a liquid diet “cleanse” after that gluttonous Christmas!’ Well, here I am in my daisy print bathers, with stars on my face and unflattering curves everywhere else and I haven’t made a new year resolution to lose weight since the year 2007.

It hasn’t been easy all the way, fending off well meaning advice from acquaintances and relatives, and having to tune out friends unloading their weightloss plans onto me. Thankfully, and mostly because I’ve been doing it for so long, this sort of selective vision and hearing comes as second nature to me. But when the lovely folks at Lime Ricki swimwear asked me if I’d like to try out one of their swimsuits and talk a bit about feeling body confident as a fat woman, I realised that it would actually be helpful to share my tips for keeping sane and preserving your mental health (and confidence) in this month of weight based penance (ugh!)

1. Take out the trash

By which I mean the glossy magazines promising miracle ‘cures’ on the cover, the tabloids and their websites, the Instagrammers selling diarrhea tea, basically any media that’s not fat positive. Back in 2007, I was more than a bit addicted to celebrity gossip - it was entertaining and a welcome distraction from my undergrad texts. However, once I realised how badly the tales of celebrity weight loss and gain affected my own body image, I started weaning myself off it. And the more time I spent on the fat positive internet, the more I started abhorring popular media and the diet culture it sells. After a point, I didn’t even want to browse through ONTD anymore. Especially because I could find all the fashion inspiration I wanted from the fat internet, and that too on bodies that looked like mine.

2. Surround yourself with fat positive media

Admittedly, the fatshion community has a very different face now than it did a decade ago, and there’s no onus on plus size bloggers to be fat positive as well. You’ll find countless plus fashion bloggers who advocate weightloss and think nothing of documenting their diets, but there are just as many anti-weightloss bloggers you can follow if you’re looking for some positive reinforcement to go with your daily fashion fix. If you’re looking for somewhere to start with, my blogroll on this page has quite a few awesome internet peeps who are just as fat positive as they’re fashionable. And if anyone you’ve been following for a while, and whose style you love descends down the slippery road to diets, don’t hesitate to unfollow them if that’s what you need for your sanity. Just putting that out there because I feel kind of bad whenever I have to do that!

3. You don’t have to listen to your friends’ diet talk

I have friends who get down on their bodies, who can’t stop talking about how badly they need to lose weight. Most of us have friends like that. It’s especially distressing when they’re people you’re close to and genuinely care about, people whose concerns you can’t just shut down without an explanation. I’ve found that a gentler approach works best in these situations. All my friends are extremely aware of my stance on diets and weightloss - I mean, I’ve only been banging on about it for the last decade or so! Yet they still try to talk to me sometimes about how they’re planning to lose weight. In situations like this, this is pretty much what I tell them: Listen dude, it’s your body, you do whatever you want with it. But you know how I feel about weightloss, so there’s no point telling me about this because I’m just going to space out. You’re an adult, making your adult choices, so go ahead and make them *shoulder pats* I have literally zero inputs to give here. *firm shoulder pats*

Back when I was first learning about fat positivity, I made it my mission to bring all my closest friends into the fold. How could I let them suffer in the purgatory of dieting and self hate when I’d found such freedom in the  alternative? Unfortunately, that’s not how people work. And ultimately, everyone has to make their own decisions about the path they want to follow, whether it comes to weightloss or the rest of life itself. You can help them along the way, but the decision of whether to be diet free or not is theirs to make.

4. Spend some time with yourself

One of the things I realised when I was getting to grips with body positivity was this: I didn’t actually know my own body. I used to avoid looking at mirrors, especially when I was naked, I only ever saw myself from one single angle, looking down at my boobs, belly, a bit of leg and feet. Whenever I came across a candid photo, I would be aghast because is this really how everyone sees me? To accept my body, I had to know it first. From every possible angle so that I couldn’t take myself unawares. Back then, I had my ex to photograph me naked, but if you don’t have anyone like that, use the mirror, use your webcam! Take photos of yourself with the self timer, standing, sitting, in silly poses and unflattering ones. Examine those photos, find the parts of your body that you love, and write down what it is that you love about them. Then find the parts of yourself that you don’t love as much and figure out something positive to say about them as well. Write that down too. Keep going back to those photos and notes whenever you can, and keep adding to them. If I’d taken these swimsuit photos 5 years ago, I’m sure I’d have been cringing at my flat butt and lumpy thighs entirely because I wasn’t familiar with them. But now I know exactly what I look like from the back, or sitting down. The body I have is the body I expect to see in photos because I’ve seen it so many times now. I know exactly how my belly folds, where my things dimple when I’m walking. These are regular, everyday features to me now, not some kind of a bogeyman waiting to jump out at me from photos I didn’t expect.

5. Set a positive example by eating

This one’s for those of you who have already taken the first steps towards body positivity, those of you who are feeling secure enough to give a very public middle finger to diet culture. I didn’t find public eating easy at the beginning, especially since I had a history of eating disorders. As my BFF recalls, one of her first memories of me was at the University canteen, with an apple in one hand and a cigarette in the other, steadfastly refusing any other food because ‘that’s all I needed for lunch.’ It took a while to get to the point where I could go out with her and triumphantly demolish platters of food in public. What I noticed, though, was that whenever I was out with a group of people and a couple of them were heading towards the ‘I think I’ll just have a salad’ territory, they ended up ordering what they actually wanted and enjoying it once I’d set the lead by unabashedly eating what I wanted. And even if you’re still a way away from being able to eat freely in public, I think that just eating the food you want with relish and joy and savouring every bite without guilt is the biggest FUUUUU you can hurl at the diet industry this time of the year. So treat yourself to the food you love and actually want to eat, listen to your body instead of the ad pointing out your supposed failings. And remember, food has no morals attached to it, it’s we who burden our plates with them.

Thoughts I am having-

TW for weight loss surgery and diet talk.

So I just wanted to let you all in on my thought process about the news that Gabby Sidibe has not only had weight loss surgery but is promoting it in interviews as a good thing.

I’m really disappointed. Fat women don’t get to have many icons and that is even more true for fat black women and other fat women of color. 

Whenever a fat woman makes it as an entertainer, she always loses weight. Always. It sucks and it hurts. 

I have other things to say about weight loss surgery in general, and specifically addressing certain scolding attitudes that people who do not participate in fat activism have towards the community, but that will be in other posts.

But I probably won’t be featuring photos of Gabby going forward because I can’t be on board with celebrating weight loss surgery. 

I am sorry she felt like she had to do this, sorry for the people who will get a harmful message out of what she is doing right now, and I hope she is ok long term, because a lot of people aren’t after they have the surgery.

And I wanted you to know if you found this out and you’re upset by it, you are not alone. 

🎉I've reached my second goal🎉

At the end of 2015 I weighed 240 pounds. My highest weight ever. At the beginning of 2016, in February, I started working out and restricting calories. In the past, I have starved myself to loose weight and I figured that was what I should do. I did good, I had a few hiccups but I was down to 211 by the end of summer. I hadn’t seen that number on the scale in awhile. But a diet based solely on starvation isn’t a lifelong fix and I was setting myself up for failure.

Last fall and winter were hard for me. I fell into a depression that set me back. I ended up gaining almost all of my weight back. At the beginning of this year, 2017, I was back up to 230. I was devastated. Instead of wallowing though I pulled myself up by my boot straps. I did some research on veganism and watched a few high carb Hannah videos, amongst others, and made the switch.

Today is April 13th 2017, I have been vegan for 3 months, I work out almost everyday, and I am extremely busy. I realized I couldn’t make excuses. If I want time to do these things, I have to make time. I’ve gotten down a couple of times in the last few months and sometimes I was strong, other times I slipped up and didn’t workout or ate junk food but that’s okay. I was hard on myself, forgave myself, and kept working the next day.

Losing weight isn’t easy. Sometimes, being vegan isn’t easy but today I am happy to say that after just 3 months, I’ve hit my 2nd milestone goal of 210!! 🎉🎉🎉

I promised myself I wouldn’t go to Red Robin this week. I’m so, so close to onederland and I want to get there so bad! But, shit happens. I went to happy hour last night with my friend and we split nachos and drank a glass of wine. Ok, I had two glasses of wine. Then when I got home, I was still hungry, so I whipped up a box of Annie’s mac and cheese for me and my boo. Not my finest day. I went to bed feeling bloated, a little gross, and slightly disappointed in myself. Before I fell asleep, I was looking through some old photos and found this one (left). My jaw dropped.

Damn y'all! Look how far I’ve come!

The photo on the left was taken on my 23rd birthday, May 2015. The right is today. I love these side-by-side because they remind me that bad days are just a drop in the bucket compared to my journey overall. I have come SO FAR, not only with the numbers on the scale but with my relationship to food and exercise and my confidence in myself and my body. Feels so good 💪🏻

So even though today I’m having a bad hair day, even though my skin is breaking out like crazy, even though I had a cheat day yesterday, I feel super motivated to power through! And so good about myself and my progress!

Today my coworker asked if I was “still trying to lose weight” because I look “so skinny” - of course I said yes. I don’t talk about my weight loss at work that much because 1- everyone does and it’s kind of annoying, and 2- this has always been a hard thing for me to deal with. So when someone notices and says something, I know I really must be working hard.

I’m on track with my points today, got a free salad for lunch 🙌🏻, and am mentally prepared to have my ass handed to me at the gym tonight. Dinner is zoodles and ground turkey. I’ve got breakfast and lunch prepped for the last two days of this week. Nothing can stop me, y'all!

Hope everyone is having a good hump day and a positive week. Remember: the scale is only a small fraction of your journey. There are so many things to celebrate along the way. 🤗

Hey @staff idk how your ads work at all like i know a lot of it is weird jibberish thats probably filled with viruses but I’m getting sick of seeing “you’ll never believe what Fat Celebrity looks like after weight loss! She could be a model!” Id rather you show me stretched pictures of bodybuilders who “destroyed the local gym, and yours could be next” or peter griffin eating hyperrealistic beef jerky

anonymous asked:

Why does nobody cry about Jasper? Wasn't he their friend? Wasn't he a major character?

Trust me I’m HUGELY frustrated about this. If they thought that two-second “slightly bummed” reaction was enough… well, I’m not surprised but it illustrates one of the biggest problems with the show right now IMO. Honestly I don’t buy the lip service about most of these characters being “friends” - we’re told that more than shown it. It’s perfectly reasonable that in the midst of the apocalypse, they sort of don’t have *time* to grieve. But if the characters and relationships aren’t the reason we’re watching the show, then what is? :(

It makes me think about the complaint on Meta Station recently that t100 only seems to know how to show the fallout of a character’s death if they’re romantically involved with someone. Even Monty, who was closest to Jasper and who I expect to be most impacted by his death – like, continue to mention him occasionally – is probably not gonna have another major emotional scene over it. But even for characters OTHER than Monty… for god’s sake he’s been a main character since 1x01 and had significant relationships with practically everyone at some point. I felt in the previous ep as I do now, that we are just not getting the appropriate weight or celebration or mourning of how important he was within the show.
