Hey all,My name is Jenn…  I’m the creator of the “Big Is Beauty Project” on Youtube.I took this picture about a year ago, right after I had surgery.I took it to prove a point.  If someone of say, a size 2 were to have  taken this picture - it would be beautiful and artistic.  If someone of  my size takes a picture like this, nothing but negative comments are  written about it.  Is this right?  No.  It’s not.  Who are you to tell  me I can’t be beautiful and artistic? Don’t be afraid of what others have to say.  If you like your body and want to share it with the world - GO RIGHT AHEAD!!!!Get to know someone before you judge  them.  You have no right making other people feel like crap just because  you don’t like the way they look.I struggled with body image my entire life, and just recently over the past few years have come to terms with the size of my body. It is possible to love your body, yet hate it at the same time.  But,  when the hate starts overpowering the love - you need to make a  change.  You can either try and change how you look, and transform your  body into something that you’ll adore…  Or, you can learn to accept and  love the body that life has given you. You’ll never be perfect.  Nobody is perfect.  Nobody can say that  they love absolutely everything about themselves.  Learn to take  something negative, and change it into something positive.t’s okay to be fat.  Just as it’s okay to be skinny, white, black, gay,   bisexual, straight, whatever.

OK..THIS IS LONG...STICK WITH IT...IT IS WORTH THE READ....Health: Drink plenty of water.

Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day.

Take a 10-30 minutes walk daily. And while you walk, smile.

Don’t over do. Keep your limits.
Don’t take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
Don’t waste your precious energy on gossip.
Dream more while you are awake.

Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Don’t hate others.
Make peace with your past so it won’t spoil the present.
No one is in charge of your happiness except you.

Smile and laugh more.
You don’t have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

Call your family often.
Each day give something good to others.

Spend time with people over the age of 70 & under the age of 6.
Try to make at least three people smile each day.

Do the right thing!
Get rid of anything that isn’t useful, beautiful or joyful.

The best is yet to come.

This molecule of serotonin (a neurotransmitter) is on Allison’s ribs. She says, “I got it for a number of reasons. 1- Because I suffer from depression and anxiety. 2- It’s something my body relies so critically on, and I felt like if I got it tattooed on me I would forever have the right amount to be okay. 3- I’m a science major—I plan on going to medical school—and I love science. by valerie.teper

1. Drink one glass of water every hour. It will make you feel full. 2. Drink ice cold water. Your body will burn calories just getting the water to a normal temperature to digest. Also it is great for your complexion. 3. Drink 3 cups of green tea daily. It will help boost your metabolism, plus its anti-oxidants make your skin look great. 4. Take vitamins daily. Do not take vitamins on an empty stomache, otherwise they have nothing to catalyze with. 5. Eat ice or gum when hungry. This will make your body think it had food without the calories. 6. Eat spicy foods. They raise your metabolism. 7. Take cold showers because your body will burn calories to heat you back up. 8. Brush your teeth so you won’t be tempted to eat afterwards. 9. Wear a rubberband around your wrist. Snap it when you want to eat. 10. Use smaller plates and utensils so it seems like you ate more. 11. Chew each bite of food thoroughly and then take a sip of water between bites. You will feel full quicker and will not eat as much. 12. Sleep at least six hours a day. If you get less than six this can lower your metabolism by 15%. 13. If you start to feel hungry do sit ups. 14. Pamper yourself! Give yourself a facial, paint your nails, anything to make you feel pretty. 15. Keep track of everything you eat to manage your weight better. 16. Keep good posture, burns 10% more calories when you sit up straight. 17. Make a list of all the “bad” foods that you crave and tend to binge on. Each day, pick one to take out of your diet that you cannot eat again. Take one off the list each day until there are no more bad foods you can have. 17. Avoid alcohol! A shot of liquor has 100-120 calories, a glass of wine has 80 calories, a lite beer has 110-120 calories, and a regular beer has 140-170 calories. 18. Avoid eating anything bigger than about a cup, your stomach will expand and then you’ll get hungry more. 19. The smell of coffee is thought to supress appetite. 20. Wear applied lip gloss. It makes you more aware of what’s going in your mouth. Also, flavored ones may help with cravings. 21. Have 6 small meals a day. 22. Low calorie hot chocolate curbs chocolate cravings, and makes you feel full. 23. Take a picture of yourself wearing a bathing suit or something equally important to you, look at it before you want to eat. 24. It takes 20 minutes for the brain to realize the stomach is full. 25. Eat lots of fiber. It makes you feel full and takes fat with it out of your body. The natural cleansing helps improve both your energy level and overall feeling of wellness. 26. Before you dig into that cake, bag of chips, candy, or whatever, take a deep breath and count to 100. Usually by the time you get to 100 you will have coninced yourself that you don’t really want it. 27. Celery actually burns calories. Every hour eat a stalk of it. Not only will it fill you up, but it will also get your metabolism kickin’. 28. Read the nutritional information. Remember, fat-free does not mean calorie-free. 29. Keep an eye on fiber content. Get as much fiber into your diet as you can, while cutting fat and calories. 30. Don’t eat a lot at once. Spread your food throughout the day. This will help to avoid binging and keep your metabolism going. 31. Avoid alchohol. 32. Do not eat in front of the computer or TV. This distracts you from recognizing you’re full. 33. Stay away from Slim-fast and other so-called “healthy” candy bars and shakes… one look at the nutition facts will tell you why. Save yourself the money, and the calories. Buy yourself some flowers instead -- they make you happy. 34. When having cravings try drinking a tall, icy glass of water with slices of lemons or oranges -- sometimes what you think is hunger is really thirst. 35. Remember, an occasional binge doesn’t hurt, in fact it’s quite beneficial if you have reached a plateau (stopped losing weight). Just don’t binge too regularly! and finally, 36. Love and respect yourself and your body. by Annika.L

From the original post:

"    Whenever I go clothes shopping and I find myself not too happy with my reflection or discover the clothes I really like don’t fit, I get my camera out and take a few photos of myself in the mirror instead of letting any negative thoughts creep in.

    I took this one yesterday after discovering a dress I fell in love with the moment I saw it didn’t fit me properly around the bust. I did a few silly poses, a few sexy poses and a few happy ones where I smiled as widely as I could and focused on all the things about me and about my body that I like. I came out of the fitting room feeling really positive about myself and how I look instead of brooding over the fact that the dress was too small for me. 

    I really recommend doing this when going clothes shopping - it it’s a great way to chase away any negative thoughts or disappointment if clothes don’t fit!" by liz

Something some people I know should consider. I hate when people only have negative things to say about others, it's crystal clear that there's something inside them that they are unhappy about, so they try to justify it and make themselves feel better by pointing out other peoples flaws in their life. It just makes you look mean and hurtful. by content

Your clients are DYING to tell you that they want portraits that communicate.  They don’t have the words to explain this, so they tell you they want a “unique portrait” or “something different” or they say they want a “really cute picture of their baby”, but what they really mean is that they want a photo that reflects how they feel about the subject, or themselves. by gina

This is the thing: When you hit 28 or 30, everything begins to divide. You can see very clearly two kinds of people. On one side, people who have used their 20s to learn and grow, to find … themselves and their dreams, people who know what works and what doesn’t, who have pushed through to become real live adults. Then there’s the other kind, who are hanging onto college, or high school even, with all their might. They’ve stayed in jobs they hate, because they’re too scared to get another one. They’ve stayed with men or women who are good but not great, because they don’t want to be lonely. … they mean to develop intimate friendships, they mean to stop drinking like life is one big frat party. But they don’t do those things, so they live in an extended adolescence, no closer to adulthood than when they graduated.  Don’t be like that. Don’t get stuck. Move, travel, take a class, take a risk. There is a season for wildness and a season for settledness, and this is neither. This season is about becoming. Don’t lose yourself at happy hour, but don’t lose yourself on the corporate ladder either. Stop every once in a while and go out to coffee or climb in bed with your journal.  Ask yourself some good questions like: “Am I proud of the life I’m living? What have I tried this month? … Do the people I’m spending time with give me life, or make me feel small? Is there any brokenness in my life that’s keeping me from moving forward?”  Now is your time. Walk closely with people you love, and with people who believe … life is a grand adventure. Don’t get stuck in the past, and don’t try to fast-forward yourself into a future you haven’t yet earned. Give today all the love and intensity and courage you can, and keep traveling honestly along life’s path. by nelda

"Even when someone gets to liiking like she should be so proud of herself, instead she's like, 'I could be another three pounds less; I could be a little taller and have bigger lips.' Where does it end? You just have to say, 'I am right here at the moment and I'm ok with it. I've got other things to think about.'" by yadiyadi

"I don't care about being stick-thin. I don't want stuff to jiggle. Really skinny actresses make me hungry—I see them and think, Honey, you need to eat! I'm lucky I don't have to live like that. I feel my best when I'm a toned, not flabby, size 8. Women come up to me and say, 'You're beautiful and confident, and that makes me feel I can be, too.'" -Miranda Lambert...love her confidence!!!! by cherie

"You know when sometimes you meet someone so beautiful and then you actually talk to them and five minutes later they're as dull as a brick? Then there's other people, when you meet them you think, 'Not bad. They're okay.' And then you get to know them and... and their face just sort of becomes them. Like their personality's written all over it. And they just turn into something so beautiful." Only too true. by brittney

25 Manners Kids Should Know #1: When asking for something, say "Please." #2: When receiving something, say "Thank you." #3: Do not interrupt grown-ups who are speaking with each other unless there is an emergency. They will notice you and respond when they are finished talking. #4: If you do need to get somebody's attention right away, the phrase "excuse me" is the most polite way for you to enter the conversation. #5: When you have any doubt about doing something, ask permission first. It can save you from many hours of grief later. #6: The world is not interested in what you dislike. Keep negative opinions to yourself, or between you and your friends, and out of earshot of adults. #7: Do not comment on other people's physical characteristics unless, of course, it's to compliment them, which is always welcome. #8: When people ask you how you are, tell them and then ask them how they are. #9: When you have spent time at your friend's house, remember to thank his or her parents for having you over and for the good time you had. #10: Knock on closed doors -- and wait to see if there's a response -- before entering. #11: When you make a phone call, introduce yourself first and then ask if you can speak with the person you are calling. #12: Be appreciative and say "thank you" for any gift you receive. In the age of e-mail, a handwritten thank-you note can have a powerful effect. #13: Never use foul language in front of adults. Grown-ups already know all those words, and they find them boring and unpleasant. #14: Don't call people mean names. #15: Do not make fun of anyone for any reason. Teasing shows others you are weak, and ganging up on someone else is cruel. #16: Even if a play or an assembly is boring, sit through it quietly and pretend that you are interested. The performers and presenters are doing their best. #17: If you bump into somebody, immediately say "Excuse me." #18: Cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze, and don't pick your nose in public. #19: As you walk through a door, look to see if you can hold it open for someone else. #20: If you come across a parent, a teacher, or a neighbor working on something, ask if you can help. If they say "yes," do so -- you may learn something new. #21: When an adult asks you for a favor, do it without grumbling and with a smile. #22: When someone helps you, say "thank you." That person will likely want to help you again. This is especially true with teachers! #23: Use eating utensils properly. If you are unsure how to do so, ask your parents to teach you or watch what adults do. #24: Keep a napkin on your lap; use it to wipe your mouth when necessary. #25: Don't reach for things at the table; ask to have them passed. by Maiden11976

Tell Me About It board - take pic at beginning of the year and attach a laminated speech bubble. Each morning, kids can write in their bubble about something they want to share with you. To start the year, you could give sentences that they just need to finish (My name is... or "I like to...") Then, as the year goes on, kids can just start writing their own. LOVE IT! by sharon.smi

TAGXEDO. If you like Wordle, you'll love Tagxedo. Just upload your picture (That's me!), add some descriptive words, and voila! Have students create a short speech or have them add the picture to their notebooks along with a paragraph or personal narrative. This took me five minutes to create. by ashleyw

Mermaid party -- balloons contained within netting on a ceiling -- so clever!   This would be fun at just about any party.  You could just have balloons or you could add a little something to them, when you drop the net, the kids can get one.  Like a balloon pinata! by Naghma

another pinner says: "My mom told me this YEARS ago; This is the BEST advice anyone can give. People say they are just venting, but others don't forgive and forget the things you say about your husband because they don't love him like you do. Sometimes the only way people know your husband is through you. Build him up. Always." by Kimber69

“My fav coconut oil recipe is; 1TBSP of cocoa powder; 1TBSP of raw honey; and 1TBSP of Coconut oil.  Mix together, put in fridge, when hard slice! It’s the best home made dark chocolate I’ve ever had and if you don’t cool it, it’s more like a mousse.  Also, if you want it to taste darker add less honey.  I love that I can adjust this recipe to be anything I want it to taste like!” by jami

this is the earring/headband holder I made a few years ago. All I did was find a picture frame that I liked {I found a vintage inspired one at marshalls}, took out the glass and then staple gunned chicken wire to the back of the frame. {you have to cut the chicken wire to the specific measurments for your frame first} After I did that I gave a quick coat of vintage cream color to the frame and took some sandpaper and just kinda scratched up the frame a little to make it look worn, after that I took 2 strands of silk cream ribbon, about 12 inches long each -- double stranded them and made a pretty way for it to be hung, rather than just hanging on the wall; then I started hanging all of my dangly earrings in the wire, along with my headbands! There is quite a few more earrings in there now, compared to when this picture was taken though.. I love it! by queen
