Hello! This blog is being discontinued. With my NEW weight loss journey on the horizon, I felt it was only right to start with a brand new home. I hope to see you there!


Tyra Banks' 30lb Weight Loss ... A Hypocrite?

Revealing on her show this week, how she shed the pounds since the infamous paparazzi bathing suit incident on '07 ... (Ms. "Kiss My Fat A**") is challenging her viewers to join the "Get Your Shape in Shape" movement. Some (as in the Mo'nique instance) feel like Tyra is another short-term plus-sized hypocrite. In one breath boasting average sizes as "beautiful and healthy" during her brief tenure of being over 160lbs - only to drop 30lbs in pursuit of "better health"...

I can respect it, like I've said before I'm all for healthier lifestyles ... but it would be nice for those in the spotlight to stop glorifying weight gain and/or obesity trends, only to deflate the idea ... I'm not completely cynical about this, lol ... I do admire that no crash diets were involved, and indeed simple changes, support, and determination were recipes for her re-discovered physique and physical well-being ... Her methods after the jump ... congrats, Ty-Ty! ... ~PC

"I'm the healthiest I've ever been", Tyra states. "I have been on diets in the past, and they are a bunch of bologna. This is a lifestyle change. It's not about being skinny. It's about getting in the best shape that you can be."
