Their Untimely Death Our Beginning Part 3 B

Buenos Dias World Fitters!

No addiction is ever easy or worth your life. The feeling of not being able to live without a certain guilty pleasure can be earth shattering. You end up feeling weak and stupid that you cannot control yourself. From my description you are maybe thinking that I’m talking about a illegal drug like heroin and crack but I’m not. I’m talking about food addiction which took the life of Manuel Uribe.

 

On May 26, 2014 at the age of 48 Manuel Uribe lost his battle with creating his perfectly imperfect body. After many years of being obese his body finally gave into many years of over indulgence. In my opinion a food addiction is the hardest to break free from. Meaning if someone have a drug problem you just tell them to stop using the drug. Contrastingly when someone have a food addiction you can’t tell them to stop eating. We all need food to survive, the problem comes in when we are using the food for more than satisfying our hunger. In today’s article we will take a closer look at Manuel Uribe last moments and try to understand why his life was cut short.

After many unsuccessful attempts at weight loss Manuel finally find one that was able to work for him. The diet that was his ultimate savior was the Zone Diet which was created by Barry Sears. What exactly is the Zone Diet? “The Zone Diet is a fad diet in the low-carbohydrate diet school that was created by Barry Sears, a biochemist” (Thank you wikipedia). With the Zone Diet you eat three meals and two snacks that have proteins and carbohydrates. It have been said with the diet he lost approximately 230 kg (510 lb) which I think is very impressive.

With the weight loss came love. Manuel Uribe was able to show the world that anybody can find love. On October 26, 2008 Manuel married his second wife after four years of dating. Unfortunately at the time of his marriage he was unable to lose enough weight so that he could walk down the aisle.

A little more about his ex wife, her name was Claudia Solis she was a hair stylist by trade. When I found out that Manuel Uribe got married truthfully I was concern about Claudia’s intentions. I don’t truly believe she ever loved him, she just loved being in the media.  I think Manuel knew that but with his size being what it was he accepted what he could get.

 

Toward the end of his life he was nursing a broken heart after his second marriage ended so quickly. I can imagine how you  no longer want to take care of yourself after your significant other have abandon you, life would be depressing and lonely again. Many people were sad but not surprised that he died of liver failure on 2014. I really hope Manuel Uribe finded some peace in his life. Additionally I hope that his family is getting on well without him. It doesn’t matter if the death was a surprise or not all loss of life are equally sad.  Thank you guys for joining me here at my little internet space it really means alot to me. I’m looking forward to my next frantastic  post, stay tune!

Bye

Love You

So unprejudiced, so unconditionally.

Their Untimely Death Our Beginning Part 2 A

Bonjour (Good Morning) World Fitters!

For so long I’ve been trying to lose weight and keep it off. In my younger days losing weight was not a problem, I stayed at 130 pounds for a while with no problem. However when I got in my late 20’s I put on weight that was difficult to come off later. When Dominique Lanoise said that no one chooses to be obese it speaks of her desperate need to lose weight and her compulsion that prevents her from creating her perfectly imperfect body.

Me last summer enjoying the beautiful weather <3

Dominique Lanoise was born on May 18, 1970 in Haiti, it was our shared country of birth that personally connected us. I immediately could relate to her and I supported her fight to get her weight under control. I wanted her to win and get her life back to where she wanted it nevertheless she lost her battle with her perfectly imperfect body.

Dominique on her wedding day <3

According to Dominique her body begin changing after her first child was born, she just put on so much weight. It is understandable to put on a couple of extra pounds after giving birth. Nonetheless most women lose the weight after giving birth with diet and exercise. One major contributing factor to Dominique Lanoise weight gain was the area  she called home Miami, Florida. Meaning she would get people in her neighborhood to give her food. I don’t understand why those people would bring her bad food  when they know how devastating it could be to her. That’s why I always say your weight is no one’s business, and you have to love yourself first.

Dominique’s youngest daughter <3

Unfortunately Domonique loved her food too much that her health came second. In the infamous show called my 600 pound life Dominique Lanoise declared she can eat two to three double cheese burgers for one day everyday that’s approximately over 4,000 calories a day.  I can sort of understand her plight, Haiti is a poor country which don’t have a lot of food but America have an abundance of food which you can eat at your own risk. Self control is not something we all can practice. For instance today I came from my exercise at the park and it took a lot of self control not to eat all the cookies however not all of us can do that.

Yummy Haitian spaghetti <3

I don’t understand why some people ask wow how you let yourself get so big, like you choose to be obese? When I started putting on the weight it crept up on me because I didn’t weigh myself. People’s rude comments didn’t make the situation better I was left confuse and shock at my own weight gain. Even though I’m not as big as Dominique Lanoise was i can still relate, we all understand sometimes how one bite isn’t enough nor is two or three.

I want to leave you with the thought you never know someone’s inner struggles don’t just judge without knowing the full story. Next post I will continue with the full story of Dominique Lanoise sorry I just couldn’t put it all in this one article. I want you all to enjoy the rest of your week don’t let a weigh in destroy your whole week you are still beautiful no matter what the scale says.  Bye my lovelies.

Their Untimely Death Our Beginning Part 1

Hola (hello) World Fitters!

I see that out of all my websites a large amount of my traffic seem to gravitate to this website. I believe the reason for this website’s popularity is that this website really comes from straight from my heart. I created this website because I was body shamed and I felt that was wrong and I wanted to support other people who are going through the same thing.

One such women that was struggling with her weight was Sharon Mevsimler a native of Great Britain. For most of her youth Sharon  was of normal weight, nevertheless by the time she got married her weight started to pile on her 5’2 body. As some of you may know a short frame body does not carry extra weight well. Who was Sharon Mevsimler and what caused her unprecedented weight issues?

Sharon Mevsimler was born on 1969 in England, from the start she witness her own mothers battle with her own weight. During her childhood Sharon’s mother Anne would put her on a diet so that she would not suffer the same weight issue as she did. For the most part it worked Sharon remained thin throughout her teen years.

A mother’s love transcend even death <3

Unfortunately after a beautiful marriage to her husband Bulent, Sharon Mevsimler begin putting on weight after giving birth to her children. While most mothers would shed the pounds after giving birth Sharon kept on the pounds and added additional weight to her short frame. Her short frame was put under its maximum string when in 2003 she could no longer fit into her scooter. Surgery seemed like it was the best solution to get Sharon’s life back on track. When “she was told the NHS had agreed to the gastric bypass” she was ecstatic and her hope of a normal life was restored.

This was Sharon in her younger days <3

Gastric Bypass My Safe Haven

By the grace of God Sharon Mevsimler surgery went well without any complications. She was able to go home after 4 days. Sharon went from 42 stone to 23 1/2 stone that is approximately half her weight. While the surgery was able to help Sharon shed the extra weight that made her so miserable however it didn’t stop the war that was going on in her head. I believe if Sharon was able to go to therapy after the surgery she may still be alive today. Sadly Sharon Mevsimler lost her life on 2010 at the age of 41. She left behind 4 children (Jayden, Paige, Emrah, Tyler), husband Bulent, and her mother Anne who loved her so much. Sharon story is a cautionary tale which tell us that there is no such thing as a quick fix. I truly believe that the wrong problem was fix.

That was her son Emrah <3

 

World Fitters so many of us see our weight as the problem and we try to fix that with diet and exercise. So many of us forget that our weight begins in our mind. For instance When I was being put down for my weight gain by so many people, I didn’t realize frankly I don’t  care about what they think about my body it is none of their business. The truth of the matter is it was all me. I hated myself I thought I was fat and ugly which  was exactly what I became. World Fitters the best weightloss program is to love yourself and the weight will come naturally off. Unfortunately for Sharon Mevsimler she didn’t love her perfectly imperfect self and now she is gone forever. Love yourself World Fitters have a great day!

Getting into a body suit was a lot harder than it looked.

The suit hugging every fat roll that makes up my body.

Thinking about maybe the camera will add 10 pounds.

Learning to love my body use to be a daily struggle.

In my mind I was always ugly and nothing ever seems to fit me correctly.

Oh how blessed I’m to finally see the true beauty of my imperfections.

Franchys Model Your Imperfections

Bonjour (Good Morning) World Fitters!

Good Morning <3

As an adolescent I idolize models, after all they are the “standard beauty.” Their thin bodies decorate every famous magazines and catalog. Well apparently my mother thought I could be a model so my mother had me call a model agency, which I did. Back then I had the “perfect body” absolutely no stomach and a thin frame essentialize with 36C breasts so I certainly had the looks. However I didn’t have the confidence so my modeling career was cut short or was it?

Bye Bye tummy hello curves.

I’ve been thinking World Fitters everything in life does eventually come to full circle. I mean everything you do in your life will one day be actualize. For example, there was a time that I really felt ugly that I could never be a model. Now I have turned to a model thanks to my websites and social media my pictures are all over the web. I remember a time that I had no pictures on the internet now there are many everywhere. Similarly there was a time that I hated my body and every stretch mark that decorated my body. Currently I love the body that is so perfectly imperfect. We all are models in the making as so perfectly stated by the below acrostic poem.

Franchys Model Your Imperfections:

More is more- The more beautiful you realize that you are the less imperfect your body seems.

Ok so I’m fat- Thank you for clearing that up for me, otherwise I couldn’t see that for myself. Yes I know models are supposed to be skinny, thanks again for bringing that to my attention.

Don’t speak- Have  you heard of the old saying “if you can’t say nothing nice don’t say anything at all?” Don’t Speak like my favorite song by No Doubt, please.

End perfection and indoctrinate imperfections- The truth is we are all trying to be perfect without realizing no one or nothing is perfect. Our imperfections are what makes us who we are, put an end to plastic surgeries and perfections.

Laugh of  the haters and that beautiful pouch- “Did you know Laughing intensely for an hour can burn as many calories as  lifting weight for 30 minutes, scientists have found?” So World Fitters don’t sweat it and laugh all the way to the scale because your weight is your business.

World Fitters Mold, Shape, and Paint your perfectly imperfect body. Far to many of us are propagandize by the bodies we see in magazines. Real women have curves, rolls, stretch marks, and some women doesn’t have any of these things and that is fine we all are beautiful. Follow the body positivity model and love you.

????????????????????????????????????

Loseweightandfeelgreatwithfran.com understands your bodies struggle to fit in with this backward pressure building to be perfect world. No one is perfect and that is just fine, I love you World Fitters just as you are. Have a wonderful week, bye for now.

Body Positivity Corissa Edition ??

Hello World Fitters!

How are you? Me I’m fine this lovely early morning, writing to you guys. I like to think loseweightandfeelgreatwithfran.com is a safe heaven for all body types. If you want to lose weight that’s great and if you want to stay at your perfectly imperfect weight that’s fine too, beauty does not come with a specific size. However you wouldn’t know that with the way the media glorify thinness.

One blogger is fed up with today’s standard beauty, her name is Corissa Enneking. Normally I agree with Corissa we should all love our bodies for the perfect imperfection that they are.  What am I talking about Corissa is the best blogger? Yes I agree I enjoy her blog “Fat Girl Flow” with which she blogs about finding clothes for larger size women. Nevertheless one of her videos talking about if you want to lose weight and join weight watchers you are not being body positive have changed my view of her. What???? So If you want to better your health you’re are not body positive? To me that makes absolutely no sense,  In my opinion wanting to better your health is the most frantastic way to show love to your body. Perhaps knowing more about her life will give us a better insight into why she feels the way she does about dieting.

Just who is Corissa Enneking? Corissa is a 30 something plus size women living in the midwest, USA. She currently reside in a house with her husband with whom they share it with their dog and cat affectionately called Kanka and Meouse. Another thing worth knowing about Mrs Enneking is that she loves nature and adores every artifact that makes it as lovely as it is. For instance  rocks, dirt, flowers, animals, and sunshine etc……. Corissa decided to create fatgirlflow.com after receiving a lot of support from the “fat community.” “The fat community welcomed me with open squishy arms.”

It’s this very support that body positive communities encourage that got a lot of people rub in the wrong way about what Corissa say body positivity is not. I’m sure many people are thinking who gives Corissa the authority to say what body positivity is not? She made it seem like in other for someone to be body positive they have to take a class and get a certificate in other to say they are body positive. Huh????? The whole point of body positivity is to feel comfortable and be yourself, how can you be that way if you have to think am I being body positive now? I’m sorry I don’t agree with Corissa on this matter no one should be excluded from being body positive because they decided to lose weight.

What do you think, do you agree with Corissa? As I mention before I don’t agree with her, however I respect her opinion. We all are entitled to our opinions. Most importantly we all are entitled to love our perfectly imperfect bodies. I trully hope you feel safe to be yourself, I’m always here for you either way. Have a great week, see you next time.

 

Happy New Years, Lose Weight Not Yourself 2017

Happy New Year World Fitters!

Franchy wishes you the most amazing 2017 

Good evening my lovelies, it’s three days  into the end of the year I truly hope 2017 will be the best year for you all!  Not that 2016 was such a bad year for me,  afterall it was this year I truly decided to love myself and accept myself.  In “Franchy’s weight loss lookbook” I showed you my progress  in my weight loss journey. Yes there were definitely ups and downs in my journey. Hey I’m not perfect, and I’m not going to pretend to be something that I’m not.

What I’m is fat, yes I’m fat. I put on weight after I decided to stop starving myself. Wow that wasn’t so bad, the word fat is not a disease or some sort of malfunction that we should avoid like the plaque.  I feel after my more curvier and sexier figure I had to defend my body. They all wanted to know how I put on the weight. The answer “I wanted to” was not the answer they were waiting for. This year World Fitters you don’t need to defend your rolls, your bloated belly, or the cellulite that has been making their way to your thighs because it is okay to be imperfectly you. There is no need to pretend you will diet when you really have no plans to. Love every inch of cellulite that is you, be your perfectly imperfect self.

At the end of the day no one is perfect. Celebrate your imperfections because that is what makes you, you. When I created loseweightandfeelgreatwithfran.com on june 2, 2015  I was fade up with people constantly telling me I’m too big I need to lose weight. I realize now that was the wrong reason to start my business (however that wasn’t the only reason) because you should never do something for someone else. For instance Back in september 2014 when I fall for this guy I lost weight for him because he doesn’t want me to be too big. Now he is gone he is no longer part of my life why did I lose myself for him?  Don’t do nothing for anyone because you don’t know how long the person will be there to see you change for them.

I love you World Fitters. I share blogs about personal things going on in my life to help you. I know I’m not alone, you are not alone either loseweightandfeelgreatwithwithfran.com is here for you. Remember I love you as you are never change for anyone, change for you. Have a frantastic New year World Fitters see you in 2017.
