Afrobella, one of my favorite blogs that hopefully you are reading as well, is celebrating the beauty of the full-figured form, particularly Toccara Jones. As you may remember, Toccara was a contestant on America’s Next Top Model and is now featured in the first issue of Vogue Italy to showcase all black models
She talks about inspirational it is to see Tocarra and other full-figured Bellas like Missy and Queen Latifah slimming down for their health as opposed to trying to fit society’s ideal of what a woman should look like.
Watching women like Toccara become fitter while still maintaining their curves
is inspiring to a bella who is trying to improve her health and shed some weight
by way of diet and exercise. For me, looking at photoshopped images of Mariah, Janet, or insert-hypersexed-scantily-clad-pop star here has never worked as inspiration. Instead, I look to celebs who I can identify with, who I know must work consistently hard and sweat to achieve their goals. Read more…
Here here Bella!
Ironically, as I was losing weight I had a picture of Tocarra and Queen Latifah up as my “ideal.” I never wanted to be thin and waifish. I embrace my curves and celebrate those that have them.
Kudos to those bellas working hard to regain their health and truly feel beautiful – whatever that may look like to them.
Vivrant Thang blogs about live, love and music over at Songs In The Key Of Life.
Lives in music, sits down to read like she’s at the Feast of Heaven, enters every room like a queen or a spy, reads faces the way a gypsy reads palms, knows sex the way a nomad knows the desert’s shifting sands, needs laughter to breathe, eats in celebration of taste, works joyously, loves uproariously, smiles insightfully, dreams delightfully.

A whole array of anti-obesity pills and medicines are available in the market that helps you to trigger off successful weight loss but the weight loss diet pill Xenical is somewhat different as it prevents around 30% of the fat you take from being absorbed in your system. This further leads to less fat accumulation and ultimately weight loss becomes a reality. For more details on Xenical, visit the website http://www.weight-loss-truths.com
