A Post From The Past

Hey Everyone!

So it’s 8pm and I don’t have a full post for you guys. I am sorry about this! I have been working hard on a video documenting the first 100 pounds lost and have kind of gotten lost in it! I am really excited to share it with you guys!

As I have been putting this video together I have been going through a lot of my old videos from my old youtube channel and I found a gem I forgot that I had! I had a blog! This is from 2011-2012 and I have just read the whole thing and it is so weird to go through my 18 years old mind! I have been wanting and trying at getting healthy for such a long time!

So while 2016 me doesn’t have a post for you, I thought I would let 18 year old Ruzele write todays post:

Breaking Bounderies

Why is it that as a society we have this overall view of who large women are “supposed to be”? That they shouldn’t be working in fashion or any public place where they’re body is seen, or they get bombarded with stares and secretive comments? This happens all the time, it’s happened to me plenty of times, if you have a problem with how I look or what I wear I would much prefer you to come up to me and voice your opinion instead of whispering it in secret like a bully and a coward. Our country prides it’s self on being a “fit” and “health conscious” nation, but we use that as a front. When we really should be education children from elementary level on how to properly care for their body and health, through nutrition and consistent, habit forming excersize. Excersize shouldn’t be a task, it should be second nature. The small simple things can change your life, you can park farther away in a parking lot, or instead of rewarding your child with food, reward them with something healthy from an early age to help form that habit.
When I feel like I deserve a reward, my mind immediately goes for candy, or a movie. When a salad or taking a walk with my dog is much more rewarding and makes me feel better. We as a society need to stop criticizing people for their apperance, and start encouraging them to be healthy. Obviously, someone can’t form permanent habits for anyone but them selves, but one little complement can completely change how a person feels about them selves. I am going to challenge all of you to find someone, and ask them to go on a walk with you. Invite them to dinner, and only serve organic food, or just tell someone they look good. I promise you, it will change their day. It might even change their life.
Thanks for reading!
