Not trying to offend anyone...but

Sooooo this one day(today actually) at my house I was standing out on the deck in my back yard to see what it was the dog was barking at. On the next block over is the swimming pool, a baseball field and all around it is a walking track. I cant see the pool from my house and I can only see a tiny little bit of the baseball field from here, and of course I can also only see a small portion of the walking track. I do notice each and every day there are many people walking or jogging on it at different times thru out the day and night, (which should motivate me more to get my butt over there when I have a free moment). Today as I was looking around too see what had the dog all in a tizzy I noticed something like this walking on the track. http://www.istockphoto.com/file_thumbview_approve/7417674/2/istockphoto_7417674-overweight-woman-running.jpgnow I realize this is just a cartoon clip I found on the Internet because obviously I couldn't go over there and take a picture of this woman..Id for sure find myself banned from the public walking track if I did something of this nature. I do applaud her for getting out and doing some form of physical exercise and I could definitely use some of her spunk to get me to do the same thing. I just can not for the life of me figure out why some women choose to wear things that are too small. Now this is coming from a woman that has plenty of extra poundage herself I try to keep it camouflaged...you know incognito...but for some they seem to like to show it off...let the world see their" lovely lady "lumps" "bumps" and whatever else might be hanging out there for the world to enjoy! I dont get this??? I probably never will!!! Yes I do think that we all need to learn to accept ourselves in whatever form we are in....and that what is on the outside does not define who we are on the inside. But that has absolutely nothing to do with the fact of why do some women have no problem letting it all hang out????? I also wonder why some take pictures of themselves or video and then post it on the Internet..as if the people around where you live getting to enjoy the view wasn't enough lets just show the world!!!!! Anyway this again is my opinion about something I see alot and since its my blog I can write about it. Now for a video I found while I was searching for the cute little cartoon image.....enjoy...or beware....whichever fits!!! (now where is my spandex?hehe)

I worked with a girl who was very self conscious about her expanding rear and would wrap a sweatshirt around her waist. I didn't have the heart to tell her all it did was draw attention to it. AND make it look bigger.

And I'm sending awful thoughts your way for posting that video. No cool, Dena. Not cool. ;)

Oh dear God, why?...WHY?! Why would anyone video tape that and publish it? I am pretty sure she has a second ass. Only problem is that second butt crack was under her belly button! As for the woman you saw on the track, perhaps her clothes are not too small. Maybe she is just too big? I am glad to hear she is out getting some exercise though.

after the text message you just sent me concerning this...I think there is another person I need to bitch-slap!!! hehe

Dena, don't you ever apologize for anything you write. It's your opinion. I too feel the same way about big women wearing too-small-for-them clothes.

I think that is a drawing of a picture of me running! Except I wear more clothes. Lots more clothes. Sadly, I just don't have the courage to watch the video...

To each his own. I guess if they're happy I can turn my eyes another direction.

But that video?!? I thought we were bloggy buddies. You hurt my EYES!

I have a friend "R". R was morbidly obese (5' 6", 385lbs) and had been pretty much huge her entire life. She always covered up as much as possible. One day she said "enough is enough, and worked her butt off. (HA! Quite literally! :P)
In 6 months months, she lost 100 pounds. She was still very large, but out of sheer confidence she bought some "skimpy" work out clothes. She felt she deserved to finally feel good about herself. She looked terrible in the clothes to others, but those others didn't know she had already worked so hard.
By the time R was down to 195 pounds, she died in a house fire.
Every time I see someone like the lady you described, I can't help but think "You GO girl!" :)

i'm guessing the one minute is the whole workout for this lady!

so you know when your boobs hurt if you jump around without a supportive bra...is it the same for the other wobbly bits do you think? it did look painful!

Devin said...

btw i didnt rate this because you didn't have a disturbing rating

My EYES! My EYES! Dena-- you and your oversharing of the extra chubby in the too little of clothing. Why must you torture us so?? Hee! Hee! Just kidding, I love it...but not like that. It makes me giggle...I too have extra poundage and I take great strides each day to make sure any offensive Crazee Juls' body parts are covered.
