Is it possible to be big and healthy?
Sunday, September 28, 2008
At times we see celebrities such as Monique, Queen Latifah and not to mention Oprah living what they may think is a healthy life. Monique has told us over and over again how you can be phat and fabulous. Queen Latifah has for years carried herself in a manor of dignity and pride. We have seen Oprah on both sides of the scale telling us that you can live a healthy life on both sides. While watching Kristie Alley lose and regain. Do you think this is a healthy lifestyle to live? We watched Luther Vandross lose weight and gain weight knowing that this was not a good thing for his diabetes. That I know must take a toll on ones body after a while. When do you decide enough is enough on the body? When do you make the decision that your body has gone through enough of yo yo dieting?
Are you willing to go through what these individuals have gone through? Do you want to put your body at risk in this manor? I know either we make the decision to keep it off and maintain at one point or we do as these people do yo yo and put ourselves at risk. I know some have accepted their selves just as they are and said accept me as I am but do they really think that we all can do the same? Even if we make the same mark in life there are to many people in life that are making the decision to be thin and healthy. I know we can all eat in moderation and have the little things we like every once in a while. I just don't understand how you can be big and healthy. Do you just stay the weight you are and exercise to maintain? How does that work? I don't understand it? I watched Monique's show where she crowns Miss Phat and Fabulous (I believe it was called). She showed the women how they can be the size they were but exercise and eating right. I believe if they did what she told them to do they would lose the weight become healthy rather then stay the way they were. I don't believe anyone is going to eat healthy, exercise and change their lifestyle in that way and stay the weight they are in. If you can bring light to some of this for me I would love to hear your point of view.
