Well, I am Sarah Jane and I am sixteen. My weight has ALWAYS been an issue at 200 pounds, I definately need to lose 50 pounds! My pants size right now is a 32-34 and it makes me sick. I have only lost 30 pounds this year, when I know if I didn't have so many bad habits, I could lose weight. Up until today, I had completely stopped caring about my weight.

Well, I'm new here so I figured I'd introduce myself before I just started randomly posting and commenting and everyone was all "Who is this chick?" So, what is there to say? I'm Tiffany, I'm 17. I'll be a senior in high school in the fall. If I had to choose 5 words/phrases to describe me, they would be: Wait ... I actually have to think about this ...

Music is my life
Computer geek

Well ... there's alot more to me but I'm really bad at introducing me so ... I hope I'm welcome here ^.^

Beautiful: Part 2 [Jun. 16th, 2005|02:39 pm]
Fat Acceptance

I recently posted a post about the medias influence on eating disorders. This is my continued part of this. Please take the time to read this even though it is pretty long. I previously posted: "Yes, beauty magazines and celebrities promote low self esteem and this image of what a 'normal' girl should look like, when in reality what you don't see is that they are all so thin its disgusting. I'm sorry but every single woman is beautiful in some way or another and nothing can take that away from them except for the media who tells women that have to be 'thin' to be beautiful. It's disgusting. Sure, the media has told the world about the deaths of well-known perfomers and athletes who have died as a direct result of their eating disorder. The media can be somewhat hypocritical however, in that we may read an article about someone suffering or dying from anorexia on one page, and have an clothing advertisement with a clearly underweight model on the very next page."

Question [May. 22nd, 2005|06:20 pm]
Fat Acceptance
Has anyone flown lately? I don't know if this is the right place to ask/post sorry if it's not, but I'm supposed to be on the East Coast next month and I still haven't booked my flight/hotel because I'm freaking out about flying. Not out of fear, but because I'm afraid I won't fit in one seat. I know airlines like Southwest will charge you twice or for two seats, and I'm afraid of the aisle sizes etc. I'm just wondering if anyone knows which airline has the biggest seats/space etc. Believe it or not there is not a lot of information available online about this issue only that you can get refunds etc. Please help if you can, thanx. *cross-posted*

Hi all! I've been a member here since the creation of this community, but under a different name (clumsyxheart). I've started up a new journal, as part of my "fresh start" in life. But I thought a little re-intro might be in order. =)

My name is April, I'm 22 (Aries), and if I had to guess my weight, it'd be around 180lbs. I'm definitely not proud of my weight, it's something that peeves me a little everyday. I find dieting disturbing and not the route I want to go in for weight loss. Lately, I've been monitoring what I eat, how much I eat of it, and how often I eat. I eat what I want in moderation. No upsizing on meals at fast food places, no extras, and I try to eat just enough to fill me up and then I stop. I remember when anytime I went to a fast food place I wanted the large size, usually for the larger drink instead of food, but who really needs 32 oz. of soda to wash down a meal?? I've also started drinking less carbinated products and drinking more water, tea and juices.

In previous entries I've posted about how insecure I was with my body image. Lately, I'm dealing with it better, it still bothers me, but I don't look at myself in the mirror and tell myself I look like a cow either. For over a year now, I have been in search of a pair of men's jeans that fit me correctly enough to wear without looking ridiculous in hopes that if I move away from the women's style of jeans, I can find something more suitable to my size and shape. I realize they make women's jeans in larger sizes as well, but boy pants suit me better.

Anyway, I FINALLY found a pair today! I got them at Old Navy. ( These are the ones I got!) I thought I would wear a size 38 waist, but I've found that if I get a 40 then they sit as low as my girls jeans did and that's more comfy to me. It's ridiculously hard to find guys jeans in a 38 or 40 waist and a 30 length. Haha. Apparently, if you're fat, you're supposed to be tall! Anywho. They're extremely comfortable, not too baggy, and they don't extend five miles below my feet so I am happy!!!! I think they'll help me feel more comfortable with my size and my style.

& just so it's not all text...Collapse )

Queen Latifah!
born on March 18th, 1970, in East Orange, New Jersey. She came from a police family--both her father and older brother were cops, which would later influence her rhyming style and life philosophy. One of the most prominent female hip-hop artists on the scene for over a decade, Queen Latifah has also made tremendous inroads in movies, television, and artist management, with her management company, Flavor Unit. A role model who takes the responsibility to heart, Latifah carefully constructed a fine career for herself - one that is constantly moving upward.

In other news for anybody interested in a good television episode that has a lot to do with 'fat acceptance' in high schools you should watch for the episode "Mean" it is from the Series Law and Order: Special Victims Unit. I think it shows the hate that is so much ignored in hight school communities. Its a good watch, so watch for it on TNT or in the TV Guide.

This community is becoming very inactive. So...


Write a little bit about them, their life, what they did, maybe include a picture, and why you love them.

I think I'm going to write up a tribute to Mama Cass sometime this week.

Ew. [Feb. 20th, 2005|03:55 pm]

I was looking at the pictures that my girlfriend took of me this weekend and I can't believe how awful I look in them.

I look twice the size that I *think* I am. I'm so disappointed.

Until I saw them, I'd been semi-ok with my weight. You know, saying I'm fat and I should lose weight, but not caring too much, because I thought I still looked alright--curvy, with a few extra pounds, but nothing extreme.

Seeing this pictures, I thought to myself, 'my god, I have to do something soon, before I keep growing.' I never thought I'd get fatter than I was, but I steadily am and I feel like there isn't much I can do about it.

Sure, I can eat healthy, but it'd be a hell of alot easier if I had a kitchen and never had to rely on getting my food from someone else. And eating healthy costs SO much!!!!! God, it's so much easier to just get some cheap fast food than to spend $6 or $7 for a salad or something. It's outrageous!

I've never been so ashamed of the way I look.
