Healthy Liz

Having struggled with my weight for years, I have made the switch to Tumblr in the hopes of finding an amazing network of friends and support to stick to my weight loss this time around.


Also, I wish I could add all of you back! This blog is a sub-blog of my main one and so I can't add anyone. But, if you want, I'm more than happy to give you my main blog!

I'm 5'6 :)
HW: 295
GW: 200
UGW: 140 (ish - I'll see how I feel when I get there!)

I suffer from chronic back pain. I'm working with a chiropractor and massage therapist(s) to improve muscle strength and flexibility.

I bought some boots from Simply Be with the widest calf available: Extra Curvy Plus. I measured my own calves twice to make sure I’d fit into the measurements on the website and then even ordered a size up. They came in the mail today and they don’t fit…I could barely zip them halfway up my calves. I’m at a loss. Does anyone have any boot suggestions that cater towards really big calves?

also can we stop pretending skinny shaming is on the same level as fat shaming? im against shaming people’s bodies no matter what and i think doing so is disgusting but thin bodies are still far more accepted and catered to and it’s important to acknowledge that

I was with her and him. He decided he wanted to pick me up. And he didn’t mean any of this in a cruel way. He just wanted to see if he could do it. Pick me up. And I’ve been trying to figure out why I panicked and said no. It’s partially because I’m fairly sure he couldn’t (and that would have been fucking embarrassing) but mostly I think I freaked because I don’t want to be a concept. To him, he’s just seeing if he can do it. To him, it’s about him. But it’s not. It’s about me. He wants to see if he can lift ME. He would never say that to her. Because obviously he can pick her up because she’s much smaller than me. He wants to see if he can lift me. And then I’m not a person anymore, I’m a thing. A fat, heavy thing to see if he can lift up. And fuck that.

dare we get our hopes up? i love that polka dot dress and floral skirt, and some of it is even *pants* !

is it just me or do you think it’d be helpful if they showed a model in the size you were looking for when you’re trying to shop online, like yes that looks great in size small but what about the other sizes

I wish websites like ASOS Curve used bigger models because like, that floral playsuit looks amazing on a size 14 professional model but I got a stomach.  I got an ass.  I kind of want to know what I’m buying before I buy it.

It took me until I was 21 to buy a pair of shorts.  It took me until almost 23 to actually wear them out in public.  Feelin’ good today.  Hey legs, you’re getting a tan this year!

Hiya!  

Okay ladies, I’ve got a question for you.  I need bra recommendations.  

I wear plus size (I wear a size 44 bra band) but I’ve got fairly small tatas (I’m a B cup, and…if I’m honest, I could probably get away with some larger A cups).  My problem is that most of the bras that are big enough to fit around me are designed for women with larger boobs.  Retailers have gotten better; I never used to be able to find any bras in a B cup at all.  But I don’t need all of the extra support.  I just don’t need it.  Bras end up having all this extra fabric/padding in the upper part of my boob that doesn’t fit right under shirts.  Do any of you have this problem?  

I’m looking for a bra with a bigger band but with more of a standard size look in the cups.  Any suggestions?

wtfplus:

i decided to compile a list of plus size stores with a little blurb, their size range, and their price range as a resource for you butts. i apologize that this list is very US-centric and very ‘feminine’-centric (i looked super hard for gender neutral and ‘masculine’ plus clothes…

Zumba time (number 2)

Here is my second full zumba workout. I improved the quality. But the upload process was taking sooo long, so i removed the HD option. The  video is a bit grainy, but the sound quality and overall picture is a HUGE improvement to the first one.

SO ENJOY!

The list of songs can be found on the youtube video page. 

**this will NOT work on mobile devices, ipods, ipads, or youtube that runs on the mobile app through a t.v. I do not control that, it’s YOUTUBE music rights. Also because of those music rights, this will not play in every country. Primarily European countries. I can not control that either**
