I wanted to write a reaction to one of my videos that got the most attention. First of all I wanted to thank everyone for viewing my video and hearing my voice. You could’ve as easily roll your eyes and gotten off my channel but you didn’t.
No you didn’t you kept viewing , thank you. This video truly was made from my heart. If you look closely you will see a part of me still connected to the video. The negative comments that I received during my weight gain will forever have a place in my life. Thankfully the place that those peoples opinion have is absolutely in the right place. It took me a long time to realize to stop giving people so much strength on how I view myself. They don’t know me they didn’t even bother to try to figure out my struggles.
Many of my haters always try to make it seem that it is about my health that they were concern about. I know better it was all about how much better I looked with no stomach. I know I needed to lose weight and I was trying to do just that. I never ask for help they just volunteer their services to me (how sweet).
World Fitters this whole experience have open my mind to how narrow and closed minded people can be. They assume that the reason that I got fat was because I became lazy and was enjoying food too much. They couldn’t be more wrong, no one wanted me to be skinny more than me. Now that I’ve lost some of the weight I will go on as normal. I’m not a better version of myself just because I lost some weight. People can go F<3 *$####<3K themselves and I mean that from the bottom of my heart. Sorry World Fitters excuse my french but I just have to let it all out. Those people were so rude, anyways have a great day World Fitters.
Today I’m feeling really good and optimistic, why is that you mate ask? Well it’s because I’ve noticed my hard work paying off. For instance yesterday after my daily walk I took a picture to remember the lovely day. I was surprise to see the difference in my appearance in the picture. I have lost a good amount of my weight, I’m very proud of myself.
I myself am never too focus on people’s bodies and how much fat their bodies most likely contain. However others seem extremely concern on how much fat my body contains. Why is that we like to put others down rather then pick up their confidence? Since I’ve lost a bit of weight no one is going out of their way to congratulate me on my weight lost. When I put on weight a lot of people when in and over out of their way to tell me I’ve put on weight.
My World Fitters I just wanted to tell you always love and believe in yourself. You know after talking to my freind I realize he has no idea what he is talking about. After years of listening to these negative comments about my weight gain I’ve realizes none of these people knew what they were talking about.
It took many years for me to truly madly deeply love myself. I’ve shed many tears, and let the tears seep through my business. I wanted to say from the bottom of my heart don’t let anyones opinion affect how you view yourself always love yourself! I want to wish you a frantastic week ahead, bye.
World Fitters I’ve said it many times we should all love our bodies, should I have added except morbidly obese people? Should loving yourself have some sort of cutting of point? I say this because many people look down on obese people when they say they love their bodies. The people that I will be dedicating this blog post to didn’t love their body. Their self hatred lead to their untimely death. In this article I will be discussing the untimely deaths of three very special women and men Dominique Lanoise, Sharon Mevsimler, Manuel Uribe. We shall begin with loveable Sharon.
Sharon lived the last 6 months of her life in a nursing home, back to the life she was trying so hard to get away from. She went from one extreme to another extreme, now her children no longer have a loving mother. This story broke my heart each time that I saw the show. I cry for Sharon and the skinny girl that was crying to come out.
I’m sure deep inside us we all have a skinny person inside each of us that is screaming to come out. Despite what anyone say I don’t think anyone wants to be so big that they can’t no longer move around. The thought of being inside my house for one day during the summer is a little devastating. I Love being able to move freely, I can’t imagine a life where I can’t move and am completely dependent on others.
World Fitters this blog is a bit different, there will be different parts to this frantastic story because I can’t tell the whole story in one article. What I’m gonna do is explore the life of a morbidly obese person and let them tell their own story. Come along on this lovely trip, see you there!
Today was not particularly a beautiful day at Marine Park but I still made my way to do my daily work out. Working out 7 days a week in itself is challenging nonetheless we all know how important it is to maintain your perfectly imperfect shape.
As for my shape I’m okay with it, the only body part I struggle with the most is my frantastic baby bump. No I’m not pregnant just everyone else seems to think I’m pregnant. Sometimes I definitely don’t feel good about my body. Luckily for me exercising helps release endorphins that makes me feel so good about being imperfect.
Yes I’m imperfect, I have rolls, stretch marks, scars, and a couple of things that I rather not mention. Nevertheless I’m okay with all of that. I remember one guy from my pass saw me at work he was quite surprised that I let myself put on weight. He made a comment I will never forget “you use to be perfect, your face is still pretty.” So now I’m not perfect I thought great! World Fitters the reason that I mentioned my pass body history is because I wanted to illustrate why you shouldn’t exercise.
You shouldn’t exercise for someone else, it’s your body take care of it because you love it. Weight loss stimulated because of someone else and not you won’t last forever because people comes and go out of your life. Now that you are exercising because you are worth it I wanted to share some of my favorite exercises with you.
Get Moving With Franchy
Have you tried my exercises yet, if the answer is no what are you waiting for? Get your bottom off the couch and move that body. I really hope all my blog posts have inspired you to love your body and take care of your health. I love you all have a wonderful weekend, see you next time.
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?
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.
World Fitters I hope you find my many inspirational words inspiring in helping you love your body. Too many times people are putting others down for not being the standard beauty. 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.
As I sit back my iPad in hand. I groan and murmured ughhh god. This is like my fifth attempt at a video for a survey web site. I always do this. Do like a hundred thousand takes (I’m not kidding) before the video is ready to publish. I shake my head as the reason becomes clear. On why it takes so long to make a video? The reason being my low self-esteem.
Through-out my life my low self-esteem have played a role in my life. Putting big walls between relationships. Putting my dreams and what I love to the side. Putting my self worth at it’s lowest. “If you don’t love yourself no one will.” These words have hunted me through-out my life. As I went from relationship after relationship. Looking for the love that I didn’t have for myself. Needless to say that search went on infinitely. It resulted in me kissing a lot of frogs and a bad after taste in my mouth. “Life is what you make it.”
Life is pretty difficult for people with low self-esteem. Their usually depress and can’t see the positives in life. World fitters “seize the day carpe diem.” Don’t let your size define your life. Lose the low self-esteem and found your-self. Get to know yourself intimately. What would you say to your younger self? Would your younger self be proud of the person you have become?
For instance You Tube had asked me a couple of months ago to do a “Dear Me” video. I happily accepted of course. “Dear Me” is a self reflection video. It’s about what your older self want to say to your younger self? Below is my “Dear Me” video and a poem I wanted to share. Sharing is caring!
Love thy self.
Make love to thy self.
Look in the mirror.
Look at your beautiful eyes.
The eyes are the mirror to your soul.
I look at your soul.
It looks so empty.
When you cry. Scatter
Pieces of your soul splatter on the ground.
Like a life size puzzle.
All the events of your life scatter every which way.
Not knowing where to turn.
Turn to me my darling.
Come to me.
Let me brush away your tears.
Kissing them gently away.
Caressing you gently in my arms.
Brushing away strands of hair.
I reach down and kiss you.
Suddenly our body begin to merge together.
Two hearts become one.
We are one.
I love you.
World fitters! I hope you enjoy this post. My name is Francesca Etheart. That was “My Life My Story.”
Hello world fitters. How are you? I’m fine of course! Trying to be positive! As you guys know this web-site is all about loving yourself as you are. Like Michael Jackson says “it doesn’t matter if you fat or skinny.” Okay maybe Michael Jackson didn’t say exactly that. But I think you get the point? Right? It is my opinion that the world is obsessed with the perfect body.
What is the perfect body? Well according to the media. The perfect body is about 125 pounds, size 38C breast, 22 inch waist, and a big back side. “Baby’s got back” an excited Sir Mix-a-lot song. So basically Nicki Minaj has the perfect body! Where does that leave the rest of us normal woman? I’ll tell you. That leaves us on an operating table getting ready to go under the knife. So that we too can have the perfect body. I think loving our body is so overrated! Nobody likes how they look. We all think there is something that needs fixing in our body. For example, “cosmetic surgery is booming worldwide as people flock to have millions of operations including breast augmentation, liposuction, and Botox.” It’s this obsession with perfection that makes Donna Simpson so unique.
Donna Simpson was born on 1967 in Mogadore Ohio. Donna Simpson parents had 4 children of which she was the youngest. Throughout her youth she struggles with her weight. For instance by the time Donna Simpson was 9 years of age she weight approximately 184 pounds. However in her teen years Donna Simpson loss a lot of weight. she was approximately 154 pounds. Consequently it is also during that time that she decided she doesn’t want to be skinny. “Donna Simpson wants to be the worlds fattest women.” Say what? Maybe I heard wrong! That’s right Donna Simpson wants to be even bigger then she already is. She sees being curvy as sexy. That’s when Donna Simpson decided it would be a good idea to launch her website.
In 2007 Donna Simpson rose to fame by creating a web-site. On her web-site she shares with her fans her eating habits, her waist line, and photos of her lovely body. Many man would agree with Donna Simpson to a point. A lot of man see a big women that is not too big can be sexy. Apparently while some man don’t like their women too big. Other man like their women supper sized. These man are referred to as feeders. It is these feeders that frequented Donnas web-site. For instance it is reported that by 2008 of the month of October Donna Simpson had 260 subscribers. Later in her show biz career Donna Simpson had a book deal and a reality TV in the works. In the end though after her lover Phillippe Gouamba left her. Donna Simpson decided to regain control of her life by dieting. So that she can be a better mother to her two children. Donna Simpson big size was impacting her life too much. She realize she was too big and made a change. But how big is too big? When is “fat shamming” wrong?
The answer is there is no universal measurement that lets you know your too big. Everyone have an opinion on what fat is? Your too big is an opinion that have many different sizes. Coincidentally women comes in different shapes and sizes. For example, I think myself as a curvy women. Here are my measurements 38C breast, 31 inch waist, and a medium size butt. That’s right world fitters. I feel comfortable enough to share with you my measurements. I feel like you are my online family. Similarly my friends and family also are familiar with my shape. When I venture more towards the fat side they let me know. But how big is too big? In my opinion only you can truly tell if your too big. So that you can make the decision to live a healthy and happy life. Always remember that “beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” Which simply means everyone have their preference when it comes to beauty. Just because a woman’s body is not your preference. That doesn’t mean you should “fat shame” her.
What is “fat shamming?” “Fat shamming” is the putting down of a person because of the bigness of their body. Therefore making them feel ashamed of their body. We should all love and take care of our body. We only have one body. If a person truly needs to lose weight because their health is in danger. “Body shamming” them is not the way to go. Most of us are already insecure about our body. We don’t need someone helping us hate our body. There is one women that doesn’t agree “body shamming” is wrong. As a matter of fact she made a video describing how she felt about fat people. The women I’m referring to is Nicole Arbour.
Nicole Arbour ” is a Canadian comedian, recording artist, actress, writer, choreographer, dancer and producer from Hamilton, Ontario.” Everyone is aware of Nicole’s Arbour “fat shaming” video. It had made regular civilians as well as celebrities pretty upset. Truthfully I don’t care much for her video. It wasn’t funny or entertaining. If it was I would of said so. However I do think Nicole Arbour have a right to her opinion and a right to create her video. Just don’t take it to heart what she said. Nobody knows you and your struggles. Overeating is an addiction as well as other drugs and can turn deadly. Don’t let people put you down. Remember this blog “Body Shaming” “As If”. The bottom line is fat shamming can have devastating results. Take my story for instance.
When I put on the weight. After being skinny for most of my life. Needless to say I was told a lot of negative things about my new body. For instance a lot of people told me about how much better I looked when I was skinny. All that negative comment made my already low self esteem plummet. I no longer felt attractive. I felt that everybody thought I was ugly. At some point I was becoming suicidal. But thank god I work through my pain. I created this site to let everyone know it’s okay to not have the perfect body. You are perfect in your imperfection. I hope my web-site is helping you. Giving you the strength to get the body you feel comfortable in. Please share with me your “fat shamming” stories below. So that you can get the support you need and deserve.
What do you think about the Nicole Arbour “fat shaming” video?
a) I hate it.
b) I love it.
c) I think it is hilarious.
d) I really don’t care.
e) Nicole Arbour is hot.
f) No comment.
g) All the above
My answer is d.
