Crissfit of Tumblr, Criss Gets Fit, and (one most of you would never know) the Wordy Warrior. After two years of focusing on my own body image through weight loss, fitness, and even overcoming an eating disorder, I've finally realized one of my passions in life is promoting a healthy mindset about one's body. I spent years ashamed of myself, hiding in clothes much too large for me and resentful of everyone "skinny" because of my own self-loathing. It wasn't until I started losing weight that I realized that even losing weight doesn't make you magically love yourself. You have to do that. No matter what weight you are, how much you gain or lose, your body is the only body you have, and if you don't love it now, you won't love it later. Cherish and flaunt what you have, ladies.
Besides promoting health and a positive body image, I've also discovered that I love- gasp!- fashion. Who knew! The girl in the men's plain black t-shirt and baggy jeans has somehow transformed into a giddy, feminine creature with a penchant for skirts, frills, curls, and pearls. I think the confidence I've gained through this experience has finally allowed me to open up and take pride in what I wear because I take pride in who I am. I feel like fashion and body image go hand in hand together; if you think the canvas is ugly to begin with, no amount of pretty pictures drawn on it will change your opinion.
I intend on this blog exploring and analyzing social ideals of beauty, our body scruples, fashion, bra fitting, healthy weight loss for those who seek it, annoying politically correct feminist mambo-jambo, and various other things that probably don't fit into that niche, but whatever, man, it's my blog, I do waddiwant. I hope you enjoy my blog and if you want to get in touch with me, I'll be adding a contact page shortly. Thanks, all!
