Fat Does Not = Ugly

Hey beautiful/handsome! Hope you are well!
So I made a YouTube video a little bit ago which I will include at the end of my post for you to check out about Fat does not = ugly. Let me tell you, it sparked a lot of hate and dislikes. Guess we have a lot of fat phobic/fat haters out there ey?
Well let me tell you this, just because someone is fat does not mean they are ugly. Being fat is not this free pass you get at making fun of someone. Being fat does not mean that you are ugly just like being skinny does not automatically make you attractive. (However, everyone is beautiful/handsome- YES, EVERYONE!)
I get a lot of frequent comments that I will leave below with my responses
“But your belly hangs low” yes, yes it does. What’s your point? (You can clearly see from my Instagram @smithythefishy how my body looks)
“But you have two bellies” Yeah, I’m so awesome that I have a double belly. Next?
“But you are fat you can’t be healthy” Oh but I am, not all fat people are unhealthy
“But you are ugly and fat” I may be very fat! You are correct there, ugly? Maybe to you. Maybe I am not your preferance which is fine, but no. I’m not ugly.

 

Just because you don’t find someone physically attractive does not mean they are ugly. They might not be your preference or cup or tea and that’s fine. We aren’t going to be attracted to everyone but just because you don’t like someone does not mean you should shame and hate on them.

Obsession with the Scale

Hey beautiful/handsome, this time I will be talking about the obsession that I used to have with my scale.

Growing up I  was obsessed with weighing myself. I would weigh myself constantly even multiple times per day. Note that this is not healthy at all considering weight fluctuates throughout the day and week. If you are going to weigh yourself have it be nor more than once a week  around the time time/day.

I was obsessed with the number on the scale because if it went down, then I was doing good and losing weight but if it went up, I would torment myself for gaining weight and getting fatter. As I mentioned weight changes throughout the day for many different reasons. Making it unhealthy to weigh yourself multiple times in a day and even in a week.

Weighing yourself can be a great thing if you want to know what your weight is. On the other hand it could be detrimental if you fall into unhealthy patterns like I did. Just remember weight is just a number. If you don’t like the number you have the ability to change it but it should be in a healthy way.

The YouTube video that I included speaks a little more in depth of my prior relationship with my scale.

No matter what the number on the scale is (big or small) you are beautiful/handsome and you are worth so much more than that number. ❤

I love you all! ❤ Remember to love yourself, love your body, and just remember no matter what anyone says, you are beautiful/handsome just the way you are

I REFUSE To Apologize For Being FAT

Hey beautiful/handsome! Hope you are doing well!

This time around I wanted to talk about not apologizing for being fat. I used to apologize and that is wrong. No one should apologize for who they are and how they live their lives. If someone can’t accept you for who you are maybe you should check and look at who you hang out with.

We are all different and look different and there is nothing wrong with that at all. Love yourself and your body and accept yourself. If you want to make changes to your body, do it for you and not for anyone else.

If you hang out with someone who makes you feel bad for who you are, why keep that toxic negativity in your life? Not saying you have to disown your friends, but if you can’t be or feel accepted, there is something wrong there.

No matter what anyone says remember to love yourself, love your body, and remember no matter what anyone says you are beautiful or handsome just the way you are!

 

Love you all! Alexandria xx ❤

Who Says You Can’t Wear Prints While Plus Sized?

Hey beautiful/handsome! Hope you are doing well!

I wanted to write this post because I have been told so many times to avoid wearing prints on my clothes because it makes me look bigger and draws more attention to my body.

I just want to say that I don’t care if a print makes me look bigger or draws more attention to me. If something is cute and I like it, I will wear it.

I wanted to say this because I personally know people who avoid wearing prints because they fear this exact reason (looking bigger and more attention on their bodies).

Ladies, gents and and all those reading this if you like something, wear it and flaunt it. Life is way too short to not wear something you like because you are worried what others think or what others will say. Don’t focus so much on worrying about looking bigger or having more attention on you!

Here is my Outfit of the Day of wearing a print top!

I love you all! Remever to love yourself, love your body and just remember no matter what anyone says you are beautiful/handsome just the way you are ❤ ❤ xx
