Is feeling healthy the new confidence?

Last week I noticed a lot of women were on a diet and lost a lot of weight. Not the regular size women. No, women who looked like they were confident about their bodies. ‘Proud women’ I know from the plus size industry. And all these women had in common, they were at least a size 48 and most were bigger. Not inbetweenies, but full figured or plus size. Does this mean, that above a size 48/50 you are not feeling healthy?

Because health was the main reason for all these women. They apologize about being on a diet: and saying I still will be an inbetweenie. I never will be a ‘skinny girl’. You don’t have to apologize to anyone! I noticed, especially in the plus size scene, women are afraid of reactions from others if they lose weight.

But you have to think about yourself and your body and confidence. All different kind of ways to lose weight: one did it by a ‘mental food coach’, another by gastric bypass and someone by a special diet. I think it’s a good thing people are standing up for themselves and work on their body! And I have a lot of respect for all these strong women! I am not promoting diets or losing weight. No, I think if you’re not feeling right about yourself, your size or your body you have to work on it! Especially when health is a big issue.

Anorexia and obesity are not healthy ways of life. So probably people want to live healthy by eating the right food and go to the gym more. I think a change of going the healthy way is a good move! You don’t have to be a size zero, size 36 or 38 to be healthy! No, a healthy size can also be a size 44, 46. As long as you feel great about yourself! And if that means you feel great being a size 50 or bigger, it’s up to you! Talking about diets will always be a taboo and a sensitive topic. Especially in the plus size scene.


Another Weight Watchers victim…

WHY? Everytime an inbetweenie or curvy person is on TV, they get a contract with Weight Watchers. WHY??? This time it is Iris Kroes, the winner of the Voice of Holland in 2011. Since April she’s been doing this diet and has lost 11 kilos. A young girl who is a role model for many young girls. And yet again it’s confirmed: being a big girl is not allowed in the media.
The same happened with Jennifer Hudson, also got a huge contract with Weight Watchers. To show the world: you’re more beautiful by losing weight! Come on! It’s time sizes 40 (EU) and up should be on tv, in movies, in magazines! And don’t punish these women who have so much talent because of how they look!

Tonight another episode of The Voice starts,
and remember: it’s all about the voice… NOT the look!


Let’s do the mango?

I am not promoting diets, but I think this is very funny! One of my favorite fruits makes you lose weight?
A fruit as amazing diet secret? African Mango extract as a safe, effective and inexpensive weight loss alternative surged by Dr. Mehmet Oz.


Is your diet making you fat?

An article on beautifulmagazine.co.uk about diets making you fat. And on webmd.com some answers of Susie Orbach. She wants to overhaul your eating habits and start a class action lawsuit against Weight Watchers International. “If dieting worked, you’d only have to do it once. Weight Watchers, like most diet companies, depends on repeat customers.” How should a healthy woman eat? “Put it this way: How should a healthy woman pee? She should pee when she needs to, and not under regulation.” Do these pressures come from men?” I don’t think it’s men alone. I think something takes root in the culture. Much of this goes back to the marketing and style industries, who make a very strange economic argument that you can somehow sell glamour by reducing everyone down to one size.” What do you think? Is your diet making you fat?
