    Tales of a Former Fat Kid 

    September is Childhood Obesity Awareness Month. Did you know that one out of every 5 children are overweight or obese? What's more unfortunate, is that these same children suffer the same fate as adults, greater risk of diabetes, heart disease and hypertension. 

    Childhood obesity is a major public health problem.

    Children who have obesity are more likely to have obesity as adults. This can lead to lifelong physical and mental health problems, including diabetes and increased risk of certain cancers.

    Children who have obesity face more bullying and stigma.

    Childhood obesity is influenced by many factors. 
    Working together, states, communities, schools, child care providers, and parents can help make healthier food, beverages, and physical activity the easy choice for children and adolescents to help prevent childhood obesity.

    The good news? Childhood obesity can be prevented. Communities, health professionals, and families can work together to create opportunities for kids to eat healthier and get more active.

    Join MSKeepItMoving on The Keep It Moving Blog Talk Radio Show? as she talks about Childhood Obesity awareness and her experience as "The Fat Kid."  Find out how to make a difference for kids with strategies for preventing childhood obesity and encourage communities, organizations, families, and individuals to get involved.

  • Hey Fat Girl! How Do You Have So Much Confidence?

    in Lifestyle

    From Blogger Chrystal Bougon

    How does someone as fat as you have so much confidence? Where do you get your great self-esteem?

    I have gotten this question a lot in my lifetime. I have been fat since the third grade and I am 47 now. So that is a lot of years in a fat body.  Now I own a plus-size lingerie boutique and the topic of confidence and self-esteem in a fat body comes up at our boutique pretty much seven days a week. Every single day, without fail, this topic comes up. "Chrystal, how can I become confident in my fat body? What is the trick?"

    So this does beg the question: Where do we get our self-esteem? How does a fat woman get to be so confident? Where did I get my own self-esteem? I have been asking myself and my community that very question a lot recently. Personally, I feel like my family and the way I was brought up gave me a good base. Unconditional love can do that for a person. I was blessed to have family who did not shame me because of my body.

    This is going to sound trite, but stick with me. When I was a kid I was a voracious reader. Any magazine, book, newsletter that crossed my path I read. I read a ridiculous article in Cosmopolitan once about how women should find one thing about their body that they liked and focus on that. (It was next to an article about how to measure if your boobs are droopy by trying to hold a pencil underneath them. You have to love Cosmo in the '80s. I was 14.) But, internally, I started that discipline when I was about 14. I would focus on things like "wow, I have really cute toes." Yes, at 14. "I love how my skin gets so tan in the sun." "My green eyes are really pretty," I would repeat to myself.

    Curtis Discusses Why You're Not Losing Fat and How To Get It Started Again

    in Fitness

    I know this seems like an obvious mistake, but many people truly don't know how many calories they're actually eating. For example, ordering a salad might seem like a healthy choice, but you could be getting a 600-calorie meal without even realizing it. Sauces, dressing, ketchup, and oils all have calories you probably don't even think about. Especially if you don't regularly cook at home, you're probably eating more calories than you think.

    We're told over and over that the simple weight-loss process is to eat fewer calories than you expend throughout the day. However, this "calories in, calories out" methodology oversimplifies matters. Hypothetically, this system would work if you ate 1,500 calories worth of cheesecake per day and burned 2,000, but the human body isn't a calculator. The type of calories you eat matters. A carbohydrate-only diet will not help you reach your fat-loss goals. You need the right combination of protein, carbohydrates, and healthy fats to build muscle and burn fat.

    For most people, a 40/40/20 ratio works great. If 40 percent of your food comes from carbs, 40 percent from protein, and 20 percent from fat, the stage is set for positive change. However, that ratio is not the golden rule for all body types and goals. Do research and find what works best for you.
