Dear Mia Tyler

I love you. I love you. I love you. I love you. I love you. I love you. I love you.
The lastest article in Cosmopolitan featuring you is inspirational.

Turned the scars that ran up my arms into beautiful tattoos and decided to embrace my body, rather than always trying to fight it

-I for one have always had issues with my weight, I've chronicled that several times since I started this blog. I'm currently around my heaviest which is 10Stone 9lbs
(149 lbs) in 2007 I was at my normal weight of 9Stone / 9stone 5lbs. I use to be a UK dress size 10 - 12 which is an American size 6-8 but now I'm at 12 - 14 UK size.

I've been battling my weight for nearly the last year now I'd say..but I'm learning to embrace that I've never been a small boned girl I'm not the thickest but I'm certainly not the skinnest. There are stones & lbs I'd like to lose and tone up alot it's getting into the routine of doing so.

So who from Monday wants to start a 6 week plan with me on losing the pounds, getting fit & learning to embrace what we have been given!?

  1. You still look great! Awesome article!!! Thanks for sharing.. I know how you feel.. I've stuggled through weight problems these past 4 years. I was thinner during high school, but gained 10 lbs in the last couple years.. Everyone has noticed I've gained those 10, and because I'm short it looks bad or something. I guess it sucks sometimes because they tell me how "big" I've gotten.

  2. I think you look great but it doesn't really matter what oothers say when you have a fixed mental image of yourself.

    I'll join you on this keep fit/weight loss adventure. I've put on weight steadily over the past 7 yrs - what can I say?! I love my food damnit!!!

    Where are you? Essex right? I plan on joining the netball team my friend trains with as I hate going to the gym - I find it boring, especially on my own.

    I was reading that article last week and think she's a great role model for women of all ages.

  3. I think you look amazing.. very sexy and womanly. No too skinny not too thick.. a perfect middle ground!

    I love Mia Tyler.. im obsessed with her.. I miss her catwalking days because she really is a huge inspiration to me. And so so sexy!!

  4. I think you look great!!
    It's good that you accept your body though.

    Nothing wrong with wanting to get fit, so GOOD LUCK TO YOU HUN! =D

  5. wooohooo laalaa, pause there for a bit, i prefer the 2009 pic to the 2007, you know i always say you are smoking HOTTTT :)

    To Jasmin - thank you for the compliment, to myself yeah I'm content with my weight I've learnt after a year to embrace it..theres parts of me i'd love to tone up and lose a little on and that involves work but I know the feeling I myself at 15 gained sooo much weight it was horrid; and the bullying automatically started but I want to know when it became other peoples perogatives to tell us how 'big' or 'slim' we have got ?!
    But my words to u is "FUCK THEM" you embrace and love you!!
    - you lose the weight when you want too or if you feel too not because people decide to poke their noses in.

  7. She is an amazing person all around. You my dear, are just as amazing if not more. I still cant put my body up like that with no clothes. Someday but for now Ill stick to showing my tummy covered.

    To VexInTheCity - "it doesn't really matter what oothers say when you have a fixed mental image of yourself."
    Which is true that comment can be taken either way people can say i look great but i know theres room for improvement and thats when i step up, or people can tell me i look fat etc but im content with the jiggle.
    But i'd love for us to do this get fit adventure, im going to do a update every monday im actually now doing a diet and exercise plan im not huge on diets so its not going to be something 'OMG!' cause I myself can not give up cheese to save my life lmao. Gyms = Boring to me too, then again working out at home isn't good for me as its easy to get comfortable when u want to I think you joining the netball team would
    be great..!! I think she is AMAZING I've always loved her & her sister because u can tell they don't change who they they are built they have learnt to embrace that.

    To Tali - Aww thank you babydoll, Ahh I'm a big yo-yo person; the cmts before of omg how much fatter have you got really use to get to me but now I just think ok this is me im accepting me / embracing myself either you love me or hate me...cmts are cmts its how much of what others say you give two shits about thats the difference. But Mia is adorable..she's overcome her own personal struggles and are showing that women should love themselves skinny, fat, short, tall whatever not to mention how much sexier is a woman when they just love and embrace themselves.
