Be Beautiful

"I enjoy being me; I always have done. I've seen people where it rules their lives, you know, who want to be thinner or have big boobs, and how it wears them down. And I just don't want that in my life." - Adele

Whether we admit it or not, we live in a very judgmental world. And I, too, have my own "being judgmental" moments and we can't just help it. But what I have learned from what I've been through and with the people I've been with is that it is important to learn how to love and take care of yourself and your words. 

Okay, so what does this have to do with beauty blogging?

ME :)
Being a plus-sized beauty blogger isn't really an easy road. I once had a comment in my weebly blog and it was a year old comment already (but I've just seen it recently) that a random person commented that I don't need to use makeup and just lose weight because I won't be beautiful no matter how much makeup I put on. Harsh? 

Here's the thing. I love myself and how I look and no matter how many harsh words enter my ears or goes through my sight, no one can ever change my feelings towards myself. I have insecurities. I mean, come on, who doesn't? But it doesn't mean that I would always be emo about them, right? Even though I am not the average pretty skinny long-haired and mestiza girl, I have managed to do the things I love doing and get a job which I am so much in love with. Now who told you fat girls will have a miserable life? LOL

I've seen people obsess about their weight and I won't be one of them BUT... Yes, there is a but. It doesn't mean I do not want to lose weight. If you're overweight, happy and healthy well then that's fine; but if your weight is making you unhealthy, then do something, right? Being beautiful is not just about having the most blemish-free skin but also being beautiful inside and that includes being healthy. I once tweeted this: "I wasn't born fat; I just eat a lot. #FACT" That is true and that is also why I know what I should do now with my health issue.  I need to start exercising and eating less but not obsess about being thin and losing weight fast for that would give me more health issues. I will do this the right way and no more shortcuts!

No, I do not have a high-blood nor am I diabetic. I don't have those and I never plan on having them that's why I decided to lose some weight. My right knee has a problem and if I try to lose weight, it might help and I'm having hormonal imbalance too. Yup, that's the reason.

You are beautiful whatever age, weight, shape or size you are in. If you want to change something in the way you look  do it for yourself and not for other people :)
I learned that just because I want to lose weight doesn't mean it's because I'm insecure. It's just because I want to be healthy. But keep in mind that if you're doing this, do it for yourself and not because someone told you you're ugly because you're fat. FAT people can be BEAUTIFUL if you know how to take care of yourself. That is why we should also be careful of what we say to other people especially if we REALLY and GENUINELY mean them well.

I don't think I need to tell you what or how to tell someone if you think there's something wrong with them. Consider how they would feel. Not everyone can be a tough as you in handling criticisms and sometimes, the more you push it to them, the more they neglect it.

I want this blog entry to be the start. The start of a new year and a new life to me and how I need to take care of my body more. I am fat and I'm not scared to admit it and I'm gonna try to lose weight the right way because I need to be healthy and not because I am ugly. I will never let words depress me into doing a shortcut! ;)


  1. This is inspiring. You are already beautiful as is Gellie and I think you already know that.. :) I'm with you though for changing, not for other people's sake but for yourself. Good luck to the road of healthy living.. :) Stay beautiful, stay healthy and stay happy.

  2. that's the fighting spirit!! if you feel beautiful inside, it will definitely shine thru the outside :) and goodluck with losing weight! :)

  3. True. :) Do it for the sake of health, and not for the sake of anyone. :)

    Been on the same page too, and I'm glad I was able to overcome weight gain the right way. :D

    I hope you don't mind me offering some help, but lemme know if you want tips. :)

    Have a great day! :D

  4. IKR!!!! It is also my goal to lose weight. I used to battle with self-esteem/self-image issues before on a regular basis.. but when I decided to accept myself as what I am and made a conscious decision that I WILL BE HAPPY no matter what body size I am -- By the grace of God I DID! I'm happy. Am I content with my current body figure? I too admit that I'm not. BUT I'm not going to let that DEPRESS me (anymore..hehe!).

    Hope you will always stay POSITIVE blog sis! MWAH!

  5. Great post, Gellie. You are beautiful inside and out and an inspiration to many of us. I have no doubt that you can achieve your goal. Good luck! =)

  6. very inspiring! no matter I love your blog and enjoy reading your reviews ^_^~ Keep it up =)

  7. "I've seen people obsess about their weight and I won't be one of them BUT... Yes, there is a but. It doesn't mean I do not want to lose weight."

    I like what you said. There's a fine line between self-acceptance and complacency.

    Yes we should accept ourselves, but it doesn't mean we don't do anything to be healthier
