I realise that the weight I had lost in the past few months has all come back ( I eat way too much chocolate and I eat out a lot as opposed to my previous starvation tactics) and really the only reason I’ve ever wanted to lose weight is more clothing options. I’m not going to lie, I don’t care so much about health. Life is too short to deprive myself from a Nutella crepe or delicious salmon pasta. But, I have being going for long walks in the evenings to feel healthier, the boyf wants to quit smoking and look more toned while I just want to feel like I’m doing something healthy for my body for a change.

But, I’m not so intense about losing the weight. It was kinda cool getting all the compliments (but it also made me wonder like how fat was I? :S and if I was l considered less cute then, like wtf?) and It was fun dressing up in older clothes that fit me again.

But it is really hard to hate my body when I have a boyf who loves it so much.

It’s really hard to hate my body when I have a bunch of supportive blogger friends and real life friends who accept me the way I am.

It’s super hard to hate my body when I look in the mirror and think “hmmm, I make this fat thing look cute!”

And I honestly can’t remember the last time I was this comfortable in my body, probably never.

So, I’m just saying thank you.♥ This means the world to me and I really hope it lasts.

  • luv ur blog it is a fun and entertaining read and i luv that u are comfortable with yourself!
    Lots of luv from Trinidad!

  • I think you look gorgeous! 🙂 It's awesome that you are comfortable with your weight and hopefully this will make other girls who are obsessed with themselves realize that life is too short indeed and every day should be lived to the fullest and cherished! I don't freak out if I put on 10 lbs but of course I would be worried about my health if my weight got to a point where it was just unhealthy. Because unfortunately with too much extra weight comes other health problems. I agree with you on the crepe and salmon pasta thing though, I can NEVER deprive myself! 🙂

  • I love your outfit! The bright colors rock!

    And about your body, well, you look stunning!! I have struggled with my weight for years, and have gone thru the whole tortuous diet and exercise phase, only to gain it all back… And i realized i was doing it to please others, even when i was miserable and depressed…but i now know that being a couple of sizes larger does not and should not change how i feel about myself nor how people feel about me. Only the people that matter in your life, love you for who you are not how you look..

    Im fat, but healthy…i can eat wat i want, wear what i want and for the first time EVER i am truely happy…and its such a relief that i dont have to count/add calories, cuz i was never that great at math anyways! 😉

    Thanks for being big, beautiful, YOU! It's people like you that inspire me to love and embrace my body and all its glorious chub!

    XOXO,
    Christina <3

  • Weesha, you are sooooo gorgeous! I can totally see your newly found confidence and it is HOT! Everything about you is perfect – hair, body, especially your amazing smile. Not to mention your lovely personality!

  • your gorgeous.. when i see your pictures, i never think plus size blogger! keep up the great attitude and healthy living.. that's really the best stuff you can do 🙂

    ps. cute outfit, love the color combos!

  • Hey sweety! I loved your outfit! I'ts interesting what you said about food and health, we are so suffocated by this idea that eating "right" is good for our "health" and that being thin is also "good" for our health that sometimes we can feel insecure with our choice of being fat and happy. As I had a family history with a dieting mother and a diabetic father I was really terrified that food would cause me harm, although I wasn't dieting. So I got to know the fabulous work of Michelle Allison, the Fat Nutritionist specialized in Normal Eating. I devoured her every article for about an year and now I'm doing her on line program and I'm learning to be more relaxed about food. I'ts not a diet, AT ALL, don't worry.
    Her toughts on food and health are really liberating and she's a wonderful person. She told me that it's really important to have supportive friends in relation to self acceptance and as it's kinda hard finding them in real life (my friends love me, but their own battles with their body is really triggering sometimes) and I find a lot of confort in the internet, with my blogging friends. Some of them I had the chance to get to know last week and I hope I can still meet a lot of supportive people, like you. Love your blog and I'd like to thank you so much for being in my life 🙂
    Ah, Michelle's site http://www.fatnutritionist.com/

  • I really just have to say You are so beautiful and seriously your curves are fantastic!!!

    Keep being you girl-love,love your blog 🙂

    Cheers, Jesa

  • you always look gorgeous! and being happy makes anybody glow, so being happy is your best accessorie 🙂

    love the dress, and your logs look amazing!

  • I know the feeling hun. <3 it's not worth feling bad about it, if you wanna feel healty go ahead 🙂 I hate diets and working out, but as long as you find what works for you, walks are great, I wanna go for walks too!! 🙂 I dont really feel the urge to loose weight but maybe like you just to feel healthier….oufh, I've been pigging out so much here in US LOL:D I need to be able to walk up hill without loosing breath. I feel so lazy.:P
    you're beautiful, remember that! whatever size you are! Love ya <3

  • I love the neckline of the bolero belted, and the belt is great too!
    I think you're gorgeous either way, and I'm not sure if I should say this, because I'm really not a big fan of body commentary, but I figure you've heard from enough people telling you how cute you looked after you lost weight, so it can't hurt to know that I happen to think you look *even* better this way. I just think your face looks the best with a little bit of roundness to it. Oh, and about the health thing, be as healthy as you want to be, feeling guilty about not living up to other people's standards just makes us stressed, and that's definitely not healthy. 🙂
    "I make this fat thing look cute!" Such a great line!

  • you make this fat thing look amazing! you are stunning, and I am so glad you have a boyf who knows to appreciate it 😀 hold on to your self and your confidence sweetheart, it`s beautiful, just like you. Sending you big hugs. xx

  • I think you're gorgeous! What's most important is that you are comfortable with who you are sweetie, and if you love yourself fat then so be it (you look amazing btw) it's who you are and we love you for it! So continue to rock those curves hun ^-^

  • First of all, I would love to raid your closet. This dress is so so so so so cute! And you know what, I think you look AMAZING!!! I wish "gaining weight" was that becoming on me 😉 I completely agree with you though… the main reason I'm ever interested in LOSING weight is just to fit more comfortably into certain clothes! Life is definitely too short. I've always said I'd rather be a little fat and eat good food than try to starve myself all the time!

  • cute blog. love your outfit. you have a cute style 🙂

    I think you’re beautiful no matter what! I honestly don’t care anymore about what people tell me; people will always have opinions, and bullies are just the worst. I want to make a point here but I feel like you understand already! I like me. And I’m very happy to be! Just as you are. You! 🙂
