5 Pounds of Fat

Advice of a lifetime: Focus on losing 5 pounds First!

The Partying Experience - Full Figured Version

Where There's No Love

In the scenario where there is no self-love, you will find a girl (let's call her "Pretty-Plus") always partying in the company of skinny friends. It's not necessarily because the skinny friend wants a larger friend around to make herself look better (even though we all know this happens). But it's more because the ignorant beautiful plus sized person (Pretty-Plus) does not see the beauty in herself, sees fat as "ugly" and therefore, sees other plus sized people as "ugly". Who really wants to identify with "ugly"?

Pretty-Plus ends up picking a very boring or very expsosive outfit to go dancing in. Her mind set? I won't be noticed by any guys if I don't show off my assets/I will just look stupid if I even tried to look as hot as her (her = skinny friend). She goes, she barely dances, barely gets noticed and ends the night thinking... "FML, I will likely end up alone."

Where There's Much Love

Pretty-Plus has friends of every shape and size. She begins to live her life to the fullest, surrounded by family, friends and guys who just really want her number. She goes dancing because she wants to. She dances the night away turning down every idiot that thinks he can just press up on her because she probably has low self esteem. Pretty-Plus is the center of attention, her friends are all trying to imitate her dance steps, skinny and un-skinny friends alike... She enjoys herself and glorifies her God in her dressing, dancing and in her radiant smile.

Do you know the best thing about each night she goes dancing??? Pretty-Plus goes to bed having burnt 1,000 calories, having released her happy hormones and one step closer to the perfect weight for her.

Growth & Goals (216 lbs)

It's been a while since I blogged, but not so long since 230 lbs. Most days there is still the fear that the weight is coming back, and honestly, I have found that I still fluctuate in weight. The biggest lesson learnt, is that, it feels "Soooo Good" walking around with 14 pounds less than at the beginning of the year. I also have learnt that sometimes it is better to just take each day one step at a time. In the back of my head, my goal is to weigh 150 perfect pounds; but for now, I'll settle for weighing 200 lbs by December 20, 2010. The day I head home to Nigeria.

In the time since I started this blog (back in February) I have learned a lot about myself. I have learnt to love my body, love my look and love my life. It may not always be perfect, I might not be able to do that 5 mile run next to my skinny friends or sisters, but I'm beautiful in my own way. It took me a while to come to this conclusion. I hope it occurs to you sooner.

Your Happy & Progressing,
