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.

How are you doing? Me I’m fine, I’ve just been doing some research about feederism. In case you miss last week’s post “feederism is a sub-category of fat fetishism, where individuals harbour a strong or even exclusive sexual attraction to people who are overweight or obese.” As you know World Fitters I’m not one to judge. This blog post is not to judge a sub culture group but rather to seek to understand it. I always say don’t judge you never know why the person is doing whatever is that they do. Instead seek to understand and educate yourself. Let’s get right to it shall we? Below i will discuss two very special women who are both into feederism.
Donna Simpson A Former Weight Gainer
I’m happy to say that Donna Simpson is no longer a gainer. She was able to open hers eyes to the dangers of feederism. She wants to be more mobile so she can better care for her daughter and son. Furthermore she is no longer in an unhealthy relationship, one day when her boyfriend went to work she pack up her things and left with her two children. She knew she no longer wanted to live this forbidden lifestyle.
Before this mind blowing realization Simpson was earning $90,000 yearly from her undying supporters. Wow $90,000 yearly I can certainly understand the attraction to this job. Yep webcam modeling can be quite lucrative, during which time she was gorging on 15,000 calories worth of junk food a day. The question is how much is your life worth? I honestly feel like those fat admirers are paying these women to kill themselves, sort of like a grim reaper collecting payment for a less desirable place in hell. On the contrary if they don’t die they end up living a life completely dependent on others for their day to day care. I myself have been independent for most of my life, and that’s the way I like it. I can not imagine being completely dependent on someone else because people can always disappoint you. I’m sure Donna has had her share of disappointments throughout her life. Similarly I’ve had many disappointments as well. Let’s go back to when the world was still magical and full of promise.
Donna Simpson was conceived on 1967 in mogadore, Ohio. She mentions that her mother used to cook big meals for her family that by the age of 9 she was already 184 pounds. Donnas struggle with weight loss seemed to end when she met husband Robert Simpson and fiance Phillippe Gouambia. They encourage her to keep gaining because she is beautiful like that. Additionally her fiance Phillippe encourage her to start a career with her plus size figure. Donna did just that by becoming a very popular web model. In the end she came full circle and went back to where it all started Akron Ohio. I trully hope Donna Simpson succeeds at her weight loss. It’s going to be hard and it’s gonna take a lot of determination.
Want your weekly dose of determination come here more often? Loseweightandfeelgreatwithfran.com will be here for you to the end. I’m sorry World Fitters I was not able to finish this topic tune in next week for the finale part 2. As always thank you for joining me. Have a lovely week, bye till next time.
Good day to you World Fitters. Firstly I wanted to mention my birthday that just passed on Monday. Yes October 31, was my birthday I turned 34. I’m blessed to have made it another year. There are so many people who never made it to there 30’s I’m very fortunate to have made it to 34. Let’s take a moment of silence for my special day. Shall we continue? Yes let’s continue to the topic of the day.
Today I wanted to talk about shape magazine. If you are not familiar with shape let me give you a brief description. Shape is a fitness magazine geared towards women, that encourages many women to love their shape. Now you know loseweightandfeelgreatwithfran.com is all about loving your shape. It’s your shape why not love it? With that said I love my shape because it shows my determination and my hard work.
I’m very grateful for magazines like shape. Many magazines show beautiful women with the perfect shape body. Women we can’t relate to. Then along came this beautiful magazine with real women and real body types. Thank you shape!
I remember growing up and not seeing that many women in the magazines that looked like me. I recall thinking what was wrong with me I don’t look like any of these women? With shape magazine you no longer have to feel left out. Shape encourages women of all shapes and sizes to love their body. Loseweightandfeelgreatwithfran.com want to spread the body loving campaign.

How are you this beautiful day, night in the world? Me I’m fine thankfully, just penning this beautiful article just for you. Today I wanted to write about an under rated country, Haiti. In case it had slept your mind I’m Haitian, I talk all about that in my about me page.
Yes I’m Haitian I know, I know I don’t look Haitian. What exactly does a Haitian looks like? Dark skin, and not well dress you may say. The previous Inclinations are just a tip of the iceberg of the different presumption about my country. Today I wanted to take a brake from carving the perfect you instead I wanted to talk about something so dear and near to my heart, Haiti.
Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. Haiti currently share the Island of Hispaniola with the Dominican Republic. While the two Island are right next to each other they mate as well be a world apart. Why you mate ask? I say that because the Dominican Republic has more advantage than their neighbor.
Haiti disadvantages are known throughout the world. News of Haitians needing help are heard often. The countries most recent cry for humanitarian aide was executed during the Hurricane Matthew storm. Another disastrous weather was the earthquake of 2010, both deadly storms caused a lot of Haitians their life. Please pray for Haiti to rise again.
Yes I hope Haiti will rise again. Some many days have passed, so many hours have come to pass and we still haven’t rise. The time is now, Ayiti Cheri let’s rise. In anticipation of Ayiti’s major accomplishments I will create a website in honor of Haiti the website will be called Fran’s Haiti Rise Again. Yes we will rise World Fitters. Thank you for joining me as I share this special part of me. Have a good week and stay bless.
As the summer is in full spring and fall is heading our way weight loss and our body is never to far away from our minds. Does our bodies look okay with this certain out fit? Do our spouses still find us attractive and sexy?
Its normal to doubt our bodies, and to wonder how we measure up? Especially with the media bombarding us with so many images of the “perfect body.” Speaking about the media recently a plus size model lost weight and is not so plus size anymore. Now she is being shamed for being too skinny, I’m referring to Ashley Graham.
Ashley Graham have recently lost some weight and thought it would be great to post some pictures about her weight loss. Boy was she ever wrong. What? I know how can anyone say anything bad about someone losing weight? Well I guess plenty of people can say negative things about someone losing weight and they did. This is simply the case of “damn if you do, damn if you don’t.” First you say she is too fat so she lose some weight now she is too skinny. Are people ever happy? The answer is no. It is definitely true when people say you cant please everyone.
So please yourself world fitters. Its your body shape it the way you want to. As I mention before loseweightandfeelgreatwithfran.com is all about loving yourself #LoveMyShape. Whether you are apple shape or whether you have an hourglass figure. You wont find no body shamming here. Comment below and tell me what you need support with, or comment just to say hi. Thanks so much for reading. Bye for now World Fitters.
Good afternoon World Fitters! Yesterday was the 11th year anniversary of Terry Schiavo death. You know her as the face of end of life care. On march 18, 2005 Terry’s feeding tube was removed. On march 31, 2005 she took her last breath and became weight less. “I kept my promise” was what her husband said to her. On the last day of march it’s clear a lot of promises were broken. He lied she died! Lets revisit unfulfilled promises. This is Terry Schiavo story.
Theresa Marie Schindler was the name of an angel who was born on December 3, 1963. Today she would’ve been 52 years old. A life cut short indeed. Terry Schiavo early life was marked by weight gaining issues. For instance by the time she was a teenager she weighed 200 pounds. Her parents wanted to raise her in a safe and loving home in a suburb of Philadelphia. So when Terry mentioned to her parents about her desire to be at a more “normal weight” they took her to a doctor for help.
It turned out the doctor helped a lot because by the time Terry was in college she had lost 65 pounds. While she was in Bucks County Community College she met and fall in love with Michael Schiavo on 1982. The couple tied the knot on November 10, 1984.
Aahhhh nothing makes the world more beautiful then love. You know the feeling of endless days and nights that seem to go on infinitely. Aahhhhh that unmistakable feeling of love. Terry definitely loved Michael. From the moment she said I do she was his.
However there was a problem. Terry Schiavo was having problems with her weight again. She didn’t want to put back on the weight. So she self medicated herself by going on her own special diet. Terry’s special diet consisted of her drinking liquids such as Ice tea through out the day.
It’s this drinking of excessive liquid that led her to the events of that early Sunday morning. “In the early morning of February 25, 1990, Terry Schiavo collapsed in a hallway of her St. Petersburg, Florida, apartment.” It really is sad to hear that terry was starving herself. She no longer wanted to be the fat girl. Too bad it caused her her life.
World Fitters learn from Terry Schiavo mistakes. “Love your body now.” Embrace your imperfections I know I do. Additionally I wanted to know what you thought of the right to die. Do you agree with her husbands and think Terry was already dead? Or do you have hope she would regain consciousness? Me myself I’m not against the fact that they kill Terry Schiavo. I’m just concern of the way they kill her. She starve to death. In my eyes they finished what she started. I’m curious to know what you think?
I’m thinking about you World Fitters! Love your friend Francesca. Bye! Bye!
Fran Says Before We Say Our Goodbyes Check Out This Book!
It’s no surprise plastic surgery is on the rise. Plastic surgery is a quick fix to everyday problems. I myself prefer to be natural, as of today I have had no work done. I wish I could say that for everyone else. The fact is a lot of people are getting some work done on their bodies.
Just to be clear I don’t think getting plastic surgery is wrong. If your unhappy about something you should try to fix it. Perhaps the issue is that you see something wrong with your body in the first place. Why can’t people just be happy with what they are born with?
Well I think people can’t be happy with what they have because magazines and TV shows are always flaunting their ideal beauty. For example, Debra Lafave is Americans ideal beauty. She is white, blond, beautiful and thin. Her beauty helped her become a celebrity of some kind. Although she became a celebrity for the wrong reasons. As a matter of fact it’s no secret what she did. She “raped” a fourteen year old boy. But got of relatively easy for her crime. Many people suspect it was her looks that got her off.
The world is obsessed with looks. Being beautiful is more important then being nice. It’s this obsession with looks that is keeping plastic surgery popular. For the sake of this weight loss website we are only going to be talking about weight loss plastic surgery. For instance tummy tucks, liposuction, Brazilian butt lift, and body contouring. All this body contouring is prof that we are not perfect.
That’s right your not perfect! Things happen! Are what plastic surgeons depend on. They’re making a profit out of your insecurities. If everybody was born perfect and love their bodies, plastic surgery wouldn’t exist. I built this website to help people love their bodies just as it is. I feel a lot of people don’t love their bodies. All I hear is people getting work done. There are many forms of plastic surgery. Below I have a list of different kinds of surgery related to weight loss:
Liposuction- Suck out your imperfections and become perfect. At least that’s what liposuction means to me. What does it mean to you world fitters? According to Wikipedia liposuction “is a cosmetic surgery operation that removes fat from many different sites on the human body. ” So what is the cost of perfection via liposuction? The cost of an average liposuction surgery is about $9,200. However the cost vary from patient to patient. For instance if your really big and require a lot of work by the surgeon, understandably the cost will be more then $9,200. Please don’t let the cost be the determinate factor of where to go get your body done. Life has no price!
Tummy tucks- “Come on honey tuck it in” is a rather common phrase heard by millions. Similarly tummy tucks are becoming rather popular too. Many people each year get tummy tucks to improve their appearances. “Abdominoplasty or tummy tuck is a cosmetic surgery procedure used to make the abdomen thinner and more firm.” So does a tummy tuck also tuck at your wallet too? Actually no, a tummy tuck is surprisingly cheaper then a liposuction. On average a tummy tuck is about 8,150. But again we can’t put a price on our life can we? Well I certainly don’t think so. Go by the quality not the cost.
Body Contouring- While weight loss is a great thing. What is not such a great thing is the after results. What I mean is that after a 110 pound weight loss you are likely to have some loose skin. Nothing is pretty about loose skin. It’s a casualty of eating the wrong foods. Further-more your also likely to have some stretch marks.
In which case contouring your body is the next step in your weight loss journey. So what exactly is body contouring? “Body contouring is any procedure that alters the shape of different areas of the body.” “Body contouring after massive weight loss refers to a series of procedures that eliminate and/or reduce excess skin and fat that remains after previously obese individuals have lost a significant amount of weight.” Coincidentally the cost of body contouring can significantly set you back on cash. Don’t forget body contouring involves liposuction, tummy tuck, and removing excess skin. It’s no wonder it is rather expensive. Below I have listed the average body contouring amounts of different parts of the body.
The Cost Of Perfection!
Inner thighs- 10,000
Breast lift and upper back- 15,000
Neck and face lift- 15,000
Full body lift- 30,000
While I don’t condone Plastic surgery I feel it’s better I inform you guys on the safe way to get the body you love. I hope this article have helped you in your decision on whether surgery is for you. I personally am pro natural and that is the way I will remain. Again I’m not against Plastic Surgery I’m just against body hating. So if you love your body and just want to update a couple of assets, that’s fine with me. Just do your research before hand so that you will know what to expect. Your body is all you got take care of it! Speaking of taking care of your body I’m heading off world fitters.
