Laugh Now, Cry Later

It's no secret, weight loss is tough!  Being overweight can be embarrassing, depressing and uncomfortable.  When you've tried every diet, exercising just isn't your thing and blah blah blah...then what?!?! Ok, I know what you're thinking:

"Make a lifestyle change"
"Exercise for health not weight-loss"
"No pain, no gain"
"Give it 110%"

I've heard them all and as much as I and the other 68.8% of Americans who are overweight have tried, I think it's safe to say that the most important cliché of them all is ...  "It's easier said than done"!

So what do you do?  Laugh Now, Cry Later!

Today, Madame Noire released the "15 Things 'Big Girls' Are Tired of Hearing".  This list is so unbelievably true that it will make you laugh so hard you might cry.  So when you've done all you can...JUST laugh. Here are the ones on the TOP of my checkout the full list click here.

  1. Own Your Body
  2. You Have A Pretty Face
  3. Just Don't Eat So Much
  4. You Should Exercise
  5. Have You Tried This Diet

My face when I hear any of these phrases...LOL!

Thinning Hair

Okay, okay...right off the break I know you're thinking "Why is BBB writing about hair loss?"! Well, not exactly.  This article is all about hair styles that make you look thin.  If you're like me then you've tried almost every slimming method there is...all black everything, shape by belt, pointy toe heels and straight-leg pants daily.  But I've never tried nor thought about hair styles that make you look thinner.  However, when I think about the concept, it makes perfect sense.  Brides are constantly trying to look for slimming styles on their special day so after a quick google search I found this telling article by Daily Makeover - 10 hairstyles That Make You Look 10 Pounds Thinner.  Now, granted I'm hoping for more like 25 pounds slimmer but I'll take the 10.  Check out some of my favs.
