ADDICTED 2: HOMEMADE CHIPS AND FROZEN GRAPES

imageimage

 

Yesterday, I peel the potatoes in excitement while having to remind myself that chips take time. I peel more than needed, knowing that they have to be cooked and eaten.
image

You could ask why I don’t just go to chip shop? Back in the day on a Friday evening and having to wait in line to get your cod and chips, used to be a buzz when the kids were little, that was their highlight of the weekend.
image

Getting them on the bikes, to take the walk down the road to Michaels on hainault road.

My mum used to make chips and I was only able to have what I was given, chips wasn’t a thing you could ask more of. Once she had peeled those potatoes and we had eaten, then that was it. But as an adult I control those potatoes, I make the decisions as to how many I get, I peel and cut what I want. But being an adult don’t help, at times I wish me mum would do me chips just to make sure I don’t get out of control.
image

The reason why I know it’s a problem, is because I will make sure everyone gets a nice amount, then we will all eat our chips, but the whole house knows that mum has put on more chips, that will be ready to eat after she has finished. I will sometimes have a plate of chips and nothing else, apart from salt. I don’t want anything to spoil the flavour, unless it compliments them. Maybe a nice slice of wholemeal bread or a bit of French stick. Last night I had the most succulent bit of chicken that was cooked for me and I made sure I only ate one piece, so there was enough to have with my other set of chips.

I know this may sounds so disgustingly greedy but, there are not a lot of things that do this to me.

Grapes, but frozen.

image

This is a new thing, I was introduced to this frozen grape thing while at my old workplace last year. A colleague/ friend? Asked if I have had grapes frozen before. My face was confused and I didn’t get it. I’m a general red grape kind of girl anyway and will sit and eat a whole bunch happily. Sometimes I like to peel the skin of slowly and take little bites, to then eat the grape and take in every inch of flavour.
image

We went and put some in the freezer, so I could see what it was all about and then I had the experience.

image

It tasted really good! but like my music, there are a few things I need to try on my own to really understand how good it is.
image

So a few months ago I had grapes in the house, (unfortunately when I have fruit at home, which is weekly, my kids just go wild. I made the mistake by telling them, when they were younger, that they don’t need to ask me for fruit, they can just take it.
image

Well! That was when fruit was cheap but they still remind me of that saying, every time I start to shout, who has eaten all the bloody fruit.)
image

So I decided to hide the grapes in the freezer because no one would look in there, well oh my god, how good were they. And I mean they were orgasmic, i ate them one by one, rolling them around my mouth, as my teeth can sometimes be sensitive and then finally biting into the textured hard grape that was freezing cold, while you could feel it travelling down your stomach and give you goose bumps. I denied this for so long, but to tell the truth, it takes me a while to process things.

image

For example I could try someone’s whiskey and tell someone that’s not better than my cider, they may observe me drinking and tell me, Fran you don’t like cider as much as you say you do, because you tend to never finish it, and I would say no I love cider and then later down the line, I would finally realise I don’t really like cider as much as I thought.
image

And then ponder on whether I should try a bit of whiskey to see if I like that. Yes I am owning my flaws, unlike some people.
image

Since that day, grapes have been a new regular treat for myself. But unfortunately the kids have now started to take part too. And when I have that first grape from the frozen bunch, I think of my friend who opened my eyes to something new, maybe one day I will tell them how I really feel about frozen grapes but until then, I’m keeping quiet.
image

 

So my new thing is not to have the seconds on the chips, I need to understand that I don’t need it. Just because you love something so much over indulgence is somewhat of a sin.
image

And as for the grapes, they have just got to keep on coming. Trust me, rain, sun, sleet or snow, I’m gonna keep them grapes in the freezer and continue to eat as much as I like.

Let me know what your food addiction is.

NUDITY WARNING. In praise of NOWNESS and their Fat Video

CONTENT FOR OVER 18 ONLY.
MAY I JUST START BY SAYING, I HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO PUT UP A CONTENT WARNING SIGN UP. SO IF YOUR UNDER 18, THEN GO AWAY. YOUR TO YOUNG AND THIS BLOG POST ISNT FOR YOUR AGE.  IF ANYONE KNOWS HOW TO DO THIS THEN PLEASE LET ME KNOW.

I have just watched, NOWNESS video, Define Beauty:in praise of fat film, Heavyweight staring Vanity Fox and Brock Avery.
image

When starting to watch this video, I had no idea of where it was going!

Once I saw the stretch marks and I know this may sound a bit bad but, all I could think of was, OMG! they look like mine. Before you start, no I don’t have any issues with mine or hers.
image

Then I paused the video, just to really think about what is going to happen in the space of 1.40 minutes, so I continued. Then to my horror  I saw the water dripping down her body, I couldn’t stop thinking, Ohhh why have sweat running down a fat woman, its just so of putting. Like all we do is sweat, even when its not hot, for Pete’s sake.  Hopefully, the fact that the water was horrific to ME, will make sense the more you read .
image

Then the music started, which shit me up to be fair, ( I WAS WEARING HEADPHONES) I really wasn’t expecting it to be so dramatic. Was there a pop up that spoilt my viewing. You know those ones that really like to spoil things for you on the laptop, all of a sudden a voice or music from somewhere starts in the laptop devise, which take you up to a good few minutes to actually find out where it s coming from. Anyway I digress. The music was like an intense fight that you see on a film that starts of slow and builds up to someone seriously getting hurt.
image

I then had to start the video all over again, but while doing this, I then got thinking about the name Heavyweight. What do they really mean by this? Is Vanity Fox the heavyweight or Brock, because he was taking care of business? Are they implying that men who love intimacy with a plus size woman should be given the title heavyweight?

image

So I continued to watch (AGAIN). Brock was really getting into the groping and everything, he was happy to divulge himself into to her whole body. Which I can imagine people out there cheering him on. lol
image

Then i suddenly went back to my original HORROR, (OK! So now you guys must realise by this point, when I get stuck on something, I don’t rest until it makes sense to me, which is the reasons why it becomes HORRIFIC )  the water! Is it suppose to represent something else?

image

Was it his love runneth over,  lolololol, if you know what i mean. Was it her love runneth over? They really wasn’t doing anything so strenuous that sweat could have developed, no shower , sink or bath was present. She wasn’t drinking water or anything like that, was it dribble? No really!What was it supposed to blooming be. YES I AM OBSESSING ABOUT THE WATER,  SO IF YOU HAVE A THEORY PLEASE COMMENT, HELP ME OUT HERE.

image

What I actually loved about this clip, was the fact that, when all was over and a shot of Vanity’s whole body appeared, her face spoke volumes.

image

What was she thinking? was it:

A, You just wished you just had all of this, like he did.

B, You didn’t realise fat could look so good.

C, This is what ya’ll missin.

D, Wow, i wasnt even expecting that.

E, Ladies this is how its done.

F, I am a true goddess and every inch of me, should be worshipped.

What did you think that last look was all about?

image

Overall, I liked it ALOT. Heavyweight was intense, had me wanting to see it till the end, I  was also happy to sit back and identify  which parts of the body i was seeing on my screen. I was engrossed, in how he was in an element of indulgence using all his senses to consume every part of her body all at once. And to finish with that look on her face, just topped it of for me. I felt an emotion, cant pinpoint which one.  She gave me a sense of YOU GO GIRL, you ARE HOT and he enjoyed every bit of you. But it still leaves me with the BLOODY WATER.

Fat With Short Hair, Because I Dont Care. 💇✌💪✂🏆

Being apart of a plus size closed group brings up a lot of questions. And one got me thinking about the saying that, fat people shouldn’t have short hair.

This grated me, more so because I have had short hair for over 18 years now.

image

Don’t get me wrong, it’s a fact that some hairstyles do look better, due to face shape but fat people have all different face shapes.

image

Is it a saying, that society likes to use to contribute to putting down fat people. It’s bad enough being dictated to, in regards to fashion and colours that we shouldn’t wear. God forbid you have short hair too.

image

My hair has had colour, been straight and also naturally curly and I have had many different levels of short trust me. due to hearing fat people shouldn’t have short hair, has also had me thinking that my hair shouldn’t be cut to low, due to my size in the past.

image

This also got me thinking, when going to a hair salon, do all stylist support the fact that a fat person can go short too. Will their beliefs determine if they do a good job or not. I mean, if a hair stylist doesn’t  feel that fat person can go short, will they do a good job to the look you want. Will you be able to turn up to the salon and say ” I’m tired of long hair, I want it short, set me free” and know that the finish look will have you jumping on the bar stall and doing you best dance moves, cos your feeling hot as hell. I’m not so sure.

image

Lucky for me, I haven’t been to a hairdresser in 18 years. Reason being, they were the first to cut my hair short and done the most worst job in the world. So since then, my sister has always cut my hair and I can leave her to do her magic, as I have nothing but confidence in her.

image

As time has gone on or it maybe the fact that in have gotten older. I seem to not give a shit about how short my hair is. As long as I like it and it’s had a good cut, I’m happy.

If you’ve heard any fat short hair stories or have heard some nasty comments on fat people and short hair, comment and let me know.

How Naked selfies and other beautiful plus size bodies are helping me accept mine. 🙈🙊💪👍👌🙌

Apart of my plus size journey is getting used to seeing myself, all of myself. So I have been taking selfies on a regular basis. But trying to get the best angle is a nightmare.
image

Getting used to the size of your face or body takes time. You see everyone else in a picture and they look normal, but when looking at yourself, this seems to be very alien, when your not used to it. So this leed me to embarked on my selfie journey.

image

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/women/womens-life/11303311/Naked-women-I-photograph-curvy-women-to-show-real-bodies.html

A very good friend and I send pictures to each other without much clothes on, more so her than me, Lol. Which has been very helpful, as we both give positive commentary in regards to what we see. My friend suggested we need to get looking at other women’s plus size bodies.
image

This may not help everyone, I REPEAT, This isn’t something that will work for everybody.

There will be many people with their opinions and reasons why this won’t work for everyone, can I just remind those of you who want to start moaning. I didn’t say it will work for everyone, but it’s worked for me OK, and its my blog and I will say what the F📢🔊K I like.

image

Anyways
I’m now going to be very honest, 🙊 I looked at plus size pornography 😱😁 as I wanted to really see what other ladies look like. And I’m not ashamed to say it, it’s there and I needed to see if my body is as different or as odd shaped as I thought. 😯

Can I stress, I’m not a lesbian 😂😂😂, just in case anyone has been wondering. I wanted to see folds, Big thighs, big breast, big arms, that hasn’t been choppped, changed or made smaller.
image

I needed to see real plus sized natural bodies. I needed to see something real as my mind has been conditioned with all these “so called” perfect bodies. Which didn’t look anything like mine or anyone else’s that I know.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-3256883/I-finally-accept-way-Plus-size-model-suffered-eating-disorder-body-dysmorphia-courage-pose-NUDE-shoot.html

This got me thinking about how my mind wasn’t able to process how good my body is, due to the unavailability of bodies like mine.

But there are more and more places on the internet that show plus size bodies, to help society in get to grips with real bodies of all shapes and sizes

http://theadipositivityproject.zenfolio.com/all

I don’t suggest everyone do this. But it did help me, in the sense of seeing that my body shape and size really wasn’t as alien as I thought and to be honest, having three kids and including a C section, it isn’t as bad at all. 🙂

image

I regularly compliment a woman on how good she looks, no matter what size she is. So I need to be able to compliment my own. So be careful where you look if you do decide to. It’s best to find stills of plus size naked women and you can find this nearly anywhere all over the internet, trust me. But I also bet you will see many bodies that are very similar to yours.
http://dailyvenusdiva.com/2013/09/19/plus-size-woman-celebrates-beauty-by-sharing-naked-photos-for-30-days/

THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO REMEMBER IS , that you are not doing this to compare. That’s not what this is all about, it’s to see what others have and acknowledge how beautiful the bodies you see are and how much they resemble your body too. And I can not stress how you will come across a body like yours. The online world is big and you will find many beautiful bodies.

All photos are from Pintrest, which is a great place to start.

Let me know if you try this method and if it works for you . Enjoy.

Most Viewed Post Of The Week, Depaul And Single Ladies 👏👏👏👏👏👏

Here is the most viewed post of the week.

 

Yes, Depaul did it. He put it down and danced till you can’t dance no more. He showed how us plus size people can get down. Size ain’t nothing but a number, and you can dance just as good as the skinny girl or guy next door.

I would also like to say that I’m a little bit of a dance freak when I’m in the mood ( no really, its true! ). Just going to a party and really dancing away, with no care in the world, is something that i look forward too. If there is an event and good music, I’m on the dance floor showing what I got and I don’t care who sees me or what anyone may think. But what I do know is that, I’m go show you how this SHIT is done.

Recently post of plus size women and men dancing have been posted online with nothing but support and encouragement.
such as Roz the Diva with her Pole dancing.

and pole dancer Eda

Plus size group Pretty Big

One of my absolute favorites is Dana Yakar who just dances so beautifully. I have always wanted to do belly dancing and she just inspires me even more

Not only can she dance but she is very beautiful too.

This brings me to the end of Most Viewed this week. But be sure to let me know who your Favourite Plus Size Dancer is. Have a great week people.

Can Simply Be, Really Be For Me?

So, I’m not a Simply Be kind of girl, I don’t know why. They just haven’t grown on me as much as I wish and frankly I find their prices for SOME items just a bit to high, for me. Yes I am a big bargain hunter. But I don’t feel that I have tried on enough Simply Be items to out rule them out of my life.

image

I see a lot of ladies in their clothes on blogs and the adverts on TV are amazing, but! I still just don’t see anything that says buy me on their website apart from what gets advertised. Oh No, I Lie, one dress that I got for my sister’s wedding.

image

image

image

So as the adverts are so tempting, I felt I better go to the store on Oxford street and take a good look. While on my enjoyable bus journey, I convinced myself to stay open-minded and be adventurous, find something that I don’t usually wear. And also find something that I do wear all the time.

image

<a
image

I got to the store and went straight to the sale section as I usually do. And unfortunately found nothing that was really me or something that I could be adventurous with. I like flowers but not that much.
image

Anyways, when looking in the non sale sections, I saw a few things that caught my eye, mainly a pleated leather look skirt that unfortunately had the smaller sizes and none of the bigger ones, which I need. I also saw this white shirt that called me so much that I had to try it on. I don’t wear shirts often at all. Only due to my gaping breast. But this had no buttons.

I then picked up some jeans and a pencil skirt with another yellow shirt that just looked like it could brighten up the darkest days.

So items that I would usually wear are, skinny jeans and skirts.

Items that I don’t usually wear are shirts, at all, standardly.
image

Pro’s
I feel in love with both of these shirts. Colour and fit. And I will say that I feel they look good too. Plus the jeans fit very nicely and had a good amount of stretch in them. Also I can’t forget the changing room, so spacious and lit up beautifully.

Cons.
I wasn’t to impressed with the tube skirt, if it came in more at the bottom, I think I would be happy but it was just to baggy, not to say it didn’t look nice but I like my skirts tight. I suppose I could have got a smaller size but don’t think that would really work.
image

And lastly, the sizes in store. Especially the nice leather look pleated skirt. If an item is selling out fast, you better get stocking up on them very quickly. As the amount of stores that simply be have, you really don’t want the disappointment of not seeing something in your size in store.

Overall. My trip wasn’t that bad, actually it was pretty good. For general wardrobe wear, I can’t bring myself to buy items from Simply Be unless they are in the sale, ( tbh I buy most things in the sale) but if I really wanted something, I WOULD buy a full priced item from Simply Be.

Somehow I came across this post and I just had to share. Firstly the ladies outfit was spectacular from what I could see.

image

Her bright orange flared trousers and her crochet top looked beautiful from the back.

image

The way she danced only ment one thing, and that she ment business.
image

Then it happened, she jumped he caught her and with the sultry dancing that they both displayed before the lift, it was a dance that set the whole place on fire.
image

The crowd could only raw in excitement from what they saw.
image

Which was a medium size man who may I say was getting on down, to a plus size lady that he was able to pick up and maintain a dance in a way that only lovers should do.
image

With the anticipation building from when the lady took a jump onto his waist, he was able to grab hold of her and take full control in all his glory.
image

It worked and I am so glad he was able to show his strength and she was able to show her flexibility.

To round up this week’s spectacular post, I want to give those guys who know, their way around a plus size lady a big 👍💪✋👌
Until next week.

Fears of the unknown, while trying not to get your confidence blown.💣💥

I know to many people, I appear confident which I am to a degree. but most of my life my focus has been on everyone else, which would be through, friends, work or family.

image

Since starting The Kurve Kit Facebook page late March, this year.  My aim is to reach as much plus size people with fashion support and information, to help build confidence in living a plus size life. A friend of mine stated that I need to put a name to the face so people can relate to me even more, which I completely understand and feel is true.

Sharing pictures of myself on my personal Facebook page is easy, as I have friends and acquaintances on there and they all know me, but when having to post pictures and information of myself to people who I don’t know, somewhat makes me nervous. This opens me up for ridicule, judgement and just nasty comments from people who I do not know, but mostly do not understand the difficulties that I sometimes  face in regards to the way I look.

image

I see so many women on social media who are plus size and constantly post pictures of themselves, in bikinis, lovely outfits, eating out and so on. That I have nothing but admiration for and support them whole heartedly, so why do I not have this admiration for myself ?

Well this is my time to put myself out there and really go hard in practicing what I preach. So I have decided I will now try to post at least one picture a week of myself on The Kurve Kit Facebook page and open the doors to me. This is my journey and in order to REALLY help and support others ( in not giving a shit about what others, who don’t know them,  have to say), i Firstly need to not give a flying F$$K too.

Yoga, Donna, Curvesome and Release.

Hey guys.

Last Saturday, I dolled up and took myself to my first curvesome Yoga class. I like to think I can flex and bend, but I still can not bring myself to go to a “regular” Yoga class, as my local seems to have mature crowd and fear they wont completely understand my struggles.

image

Arriving at the venue didn’t go down to well, which was simply due to having to pay, an arm and a leg for the parking. But please do not let that put you of.

Donna Noble, who runs the class greeted me and I was encouraged to join the group. Donna had introduced herself and a brief insight to her Yoga journey.  Then we all  explained our reason for attending the Curvesome Yoga class.

I have read up about the benefits of Yoga and I sometimes feel it is a bit overrated (I know I was a bit closed-minded and shouldn’t really judged the practice untill I tried it) but when getting into the actual moves and leaning about things that I never knew about my body within 5 minutes of the session, it really got interesting.

image

Donna made sure she had techniques for all abilities and that we understood what we were doing and why. Donna has a lovely aura about her. She made us all feel comfortable, aswell as making sure we were able to do the moves. And if you struggled she stayed with you to ensure you reaped the benefits.

Towards the end, we had all done a move which gave me a non sexual orgasm (I know right),  well that’s the only way I can explain it. I think the aim was to open the pelvis ( Donna if that bit of info is wrong, im sorry! ),  but when she turned your head while in this position, you automatically released a breath/ sound. I actually don’t know what it was.  The feeling was amazing and it felt good.

Unfortunately I had to leave 5 minutes early, to get back to my car. But whilst driving home I felt on top of the world.

What makes me sad, is that was my only opportunity to get to this class. As Saturday morning are occupied by my childrens activities.

image

I would recommend Donna’s class to anyone who is plus size and wants to try Yoga. We all felt comfortable and happy, plus the ladies who took part were so lovely and funny, that as soon as I get a free Saturday morning i’m gonna find myself right back at the Curvesome Yoga class with Donna Noble.

image

And  maybe just to experience that non sexual orgasm again.
