I am not cute and that is totally fine
I am not cute, petite, tiny, or waif-like. I am never going to be the belle of the ball, the princess of ethereal beauty and grace, or the shining example of fashionable, trendy and stylish women everywhere. Sometimes I trip over my own feet. Sometimes I walk into walls.

I am totally ok with this. Know why?

Because when I lift, I can be just so badass it makes me smile and reminds me of my real strength as a woman.

With that kinda attitude, you oughta come up with a 'super hero' something stuff for your avatar. Some stuff we can all enjoy. You deserve that - and a doll.

You know it would be kinda funny if you were in a princess dress (Halloween costume) and taking a picture of you lifting weights.

Then you really would be a badasss princess XD

walks in and smiles
"My dear admin Siskatya you are still awesome in your own right
and a blessing just for being whom you are !

It has no prerequisites,
no beauty secrets,
no definition of fashion or riches.

beauty and riches pass from this world and are but a moments pleasure.

Thank you SISKY for your inspiration and your dedication .

Impressed but not shocked women shouldn't be judged by appearance, it just doesn't seem right when they are. Personality is what I think that really matters.

You go, Sisky! ^o^
Unfortunately, I am one of those petite, tiny girls who has never had very much physical strength. I can barely lift a suitcase into the overhead compartment when on an airplane. And I am horribly clumsy, too. xD What I would give to be able to lift weights like you!

Late to the party, but I see you around, and good for you for getting fit. And you must have incredible upper body strength, which is something I've always lacked, I must say I'm jealous!

I also envy how comfortable you seem to be in your own skin. Its taken me years to come to terms with how I'll never be the media's version of beautiful, but that it also didn't matter.

Cheers to you. You've obviously worked hard to get where you are!

bleh. I sound like an idiot.
But seriously.
Gaia is a place that tends to draw lot of girls (and guys) that don't quite 'fit' into the 'norm', and often lack self confidence out in the real world. And here you are, a confident, beautiful woman as an admin lead.

You could do some great things to inspire people here- with a much larger scale than just a journal, and I'd love to see it.

Look at you go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That is so awesome!!! GIRL POWER!! smilies/icon_biggrin.gif

I am also trying to shed some pounds and eat healthy, its very hard sometimes b/c I get the urge to go out and eat a burger......smilies/icon_stressed.gif What are your tricks for doing core strength? No matter what I do I can't seem to get the stuff over my abs to go away. I do at least 30-40 minutes of my Xbox Kinect workout game 5 times a week and eat Heathy Choice meals, I have even cut back on how much meat I eat during the week. Any tips or advice would be great!!!!! smilies/icon_rofl.gif

I started leaving little notes around the house for me to see. One on my bedroom door says, "Be happy Every Day, Work Out, and Laugh." When I feel bad about myself I look at the note my husband has left me telling me how beautiful I am and how lucky he is to have me.

Thanks for reading and keep up the good work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This post kinda reminds me of Captain Marvel (Marvel Comics), a very strong heroine. I recommend it, if you haven't already checked it out.

i am a massive woman two, not fat just my upper body is a bit massive, to be honest it doesn't bother me, my body is the way it is because i lift a lots of heavy stuff every day at work and at home and i am happy that i am not a helpless woman who can not make it on her own. anyway, my point is that i'm happy because i am not the only one who thinks this way.

Know how it feels, I'm a bit of a chubster...I'm short and norwegian, I pig out too much on the goodies and Svinekoteletter in my culture lots of kinda fatty meat and delicious and just started exercise and health diet routine.
