Ok so WTH are you talking about crazy lady.
Let me explain. All my life when people asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up I would jokingly say "TALL!" Lets face it I'm 5'3'' I'm not going to grow any taller. I'm short and even when I was in highschool I was thick and sturdy. Recently I came across this great quote “Comparison is the thief of joy.” – Theodore Roosevelt. It's so true!!! All my life I have been pointing out these women. Women I wanted to be like. Women who are thin and maybe even fit with legs for miles! It made me miserable! Nothing was ever good enough because I was NEVER going to be 5'7'' and 115. I may reach 115 pounds someday but I'm short I have a fairly long torso which means I HAVE SHORT LEGS they will NOT go on for miles. Comparing myself to these women did nothing but crush my spirit.
Since reigniting my spark in March I have made some HUGE realizations!!! I now look at 90% of the women I might have pointed out in the past and I realize that they may be THIN but they are not FIT! Then I had the epiphany. I don't want to be TALL and skinny fat. I want to be ME! This sounds weird, but I've come to own being short. Do I like being short and fat? NOPE. Am I doing something about it? YUP! So after realizing I have been pointing out all these tall thin soft bodied ladies I decided to try and find some possibly achievable body images of SHORT FIT women.
I have to say my NUMBER ONE inspiration..... SHAKIRA
uh yea she's super sexy she's not a twig and she's FIT. BEST OF ALL she's shorter than I am. So when I googled her of course the weights and heights vary from site to site but The big main one on google says she's 5'1''. It's estimated that she's somewhere between 120-130 lbs. I think this is COMPLETELY ACHIEVABLE. As I was talking with Bryan last night he said "do you really want to be THAT small?" Well I don't know I'll see when I get there :) The point is she's small she's short and she's not UNhealthy thin. Here's another.
She has this GLORIOUS thickness going on in the hip/bum/thigh region FIT gorgeous small thick body! Now in the last 12 weeks I've noticed that while I thought I was an hour glass and I may have been before. I am losing SUBSTANTIALLY in the bust region. I was a little bummed but then again I've always sort of wanted "just a handful" of boobs so we'll see. This loss though is putting my measurements more so in the "Pear" category and I'm cool with that! There are other tiny women Salma Hayek comes to mind but she's pretty busty and I don't think I'm going to be so lucky after this is all sorted out :P Anyhow there are SHORT SEXY CURVY women out there. I will no longer think poorly of myself for not having grown an extra 4 inches, and hey if I were taller I probably wouldn't have the life I do as Bryan is not attracted to tall women :) I would have a completely different life my kids would be different people blah how sad. So I am short and I will be fit and I can be short, fit, and SEXY!!
Also if you haven't noticed my craziness over the last couple weeks this is my sexy legs summer. It was all inspired by 2 things the fact that I am getting the back of my thigh tattooed in August and this picture
from my awesome spark friend BEAUTIFUL_REINA. I'm sure I have been driving her nuts with my ridiculous enthusiasm over getting the "perfect butt" I'm sorry HAHAHA. Seriously though who wants to be JUST THIN and have that butt when you can be FIT and have an AWESOME BOOTAY? This summer I will have sexy legs I MUST have sexy legs because in August in Berlin I'm going to have to do the unthinkable and BARE MY LEGS. I have not worn shorts in public since I dunno 9th grade? But this is the year I stop wearing hoodies to cover my stomach I stop wearing pants in a country that doesn't have Air conditioning EVERYWHERE. I will wear shorts and not feel embaressed I will wear what I want and shop where I want because this year I'm getting fit once and for all!!!! I WILL BE FIT DAMMIT!!!! WHO'S WITH ME?
