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.
I’m happy to let you guys know I’ve lost 13 pounds so far during my weight loss journey. I know, I know 13 pounds doesn’t seem like much it certainly doesn’t seem like something that I need to celebrate. Wrong, you should celebrate any pounds lost because losing weight is not easy.
It certainly wasn’t easy saying goodbye to my favorite foods or getting my butt up and exercising when I didn’t really want to. You know sometimes you want to relax and grab your favorite food and enjoy life. That was my intentions when I first decided to stop starving myself. I didn’t intend on putting on as much weight as I did. In my highest recorded weight I was 173 pounds at 5’5 when I was thin I was approximately 5’3 130 pounds that is a total of 43 pounds of weight gain.
Wow World Fitters I can’t believe I just told all of you my weight. For many months my weight gain have been a source of great shame and regret. Many people kept openly telling me about their disappointment in my weight gain. Now my weight gain is a source of great strength and perseverance. I had to persevere despite all the negative opinions I was getting. It is my body my business plain and simple, I don’t care about what others think anymore.
World Fitters don’t care about what others think either. Truth be told when it comes to people opening their wallet to help you no one will volunteer their money. All they want to do is explode your head with all their opinions. World Fitters it took me a long time to trully love and appreciate all of my flaws. If you are not there yet don’t worry you will get there. I hope that each blog that I post bring you closer to loving your perfectly imperfect body. I love you all, thank you for joining me here I will see you all next time.
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!
Today I’ve decided to deviate from my normal posts, man also want to create their perfectly imperfect bodies. Up to now I have mostly talked about women struggles with their weight. Yes it is true that men are inherently bigger than their more feminine counterparts. However there is just as much pressure if not more for them to adhere to societal body image. From the chiseled chest to the broad shoulders and don’t forget about strong arms and legs. Many women dream of their man looking exactly like that.
Unfortunately Manuel Uribe looks nothing like that, as a matter of fact he was the opposite of the ideal body image. Nonetheless his image and body appearance was the least of his worries. Meaning his health was the top priority. He was once known as “the world’s heaviest man,” however few people knew the full extent that his obesity made him suffer. Loseweightandfeelgreatwithfran.com is going to tell his story. I’m going to be honest I don’t know the full story either. My article was written from normal research I did online. If you personally knew Manuel Uribe feel free to comment below anything that you wanted to add to his story.
Manuel Uribe story begun on June 11, 1965 in Monterrey Mexico. His first years on this earth was pretty normal, he ate the same kind of foods many Mexicans indulge in such as rice and beans, tacos, tamales, enchiladas, pozole. I can definitely relate for majority of my youth I was thin, it wasn’t until my late twenties that my weight begin piling on. A major change in your life like that is never easy adjusting too. For Manuel it was many changes that he had to adjust to when he came to the United States that trully contributed to his weight gain.
Many people come to the United States for a better life (me included). The United States is less commonly known for making people gain a lot of weight. I’m in New York where many people take public transportation, contrastingly many people in Amsterdam like to ride their bikes to get where they need to go. For Manuel Uribe Dallas Texas sedentary environment enabled him to add on the pounds. His job as a computer repairmen didn’t help either as he was most of the time sitting. According Manuel Uribe his life in America didn’t leave much room to exercise.
In my opinion the chance to exercise isn’t always going to come up. With our busy lifestyles making plans to exercise seems like near to impossible at times. We have to make the commitment to create our perfectly imperfect bodies. I mean there are a lot of different parts of Manuel Uribe life that enable his impending weight gain. Unfortunately I cannot talk about all of them on one post. In the next post I will talk more about Manuels life so that we can understand obesity more. I always encourage people to seek to understand rather than judge. See you next time, make your day as beautiful as you are, bye.
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.
