Cameron Diaz Brings Todays Quote | celebrity quotes cameron diaz

On how she started working out:

“I love the science of the body, and I love to give information and see people utilize it in their own lives. I want women to know that it’s never too late to start paying attention to their bodies. Until I started training at 27 for ‘Charlie’s Angels,’ I didn’t. I literally quit smoking a month before. I was, like, ‘Ugh, I’ve got to do this training. I guess I should stop smoking now.’ We trained eight hours a day, seven days a week for three months, and I was dying. Crying every day. On Monday, I wondered how am I ever going to do this, but soon enough, I had a six-pack. At 27, I wasn’t consciously saying, ‘I’m doing this for when I’m 41.’ But at 41, I’m saying, ‘Thank God I started at 27.’”

… says Cameron.

On how she wasn’t always fit:

“I was always heavier … I was chunky.”

On her eating disorder past:

“I used disordered eating to fill an empty void. It was worse when I was feeling anxious. People often call bulimia the ‘good girl drug’ because we don’t do drugs or drink alcohol we just abuse food. It was a horrible habit. I felt like I had no control over my mind and I had such self-defeating thoughts. I felt a variety of emotions, sadness, guilt, emptiness.”

On how pregnancy changed her:

“I had to let go of being perfect, When I became pregnant with my first child I was like ‘Wow this is what my body is really made for?’ Be fit before you get pregnant.”

On why she offers fitness tips:

“I think fitness always makes me happier it makes you feel like you can control so many things in your life. It’s the ability to be set a goal, take action, remain consistent and create a result. that process takes a lot of discipline. I think that we’re obviously struggling as a nation with our weight. I work to be a role model. It’s important to love yourself and remember to strive to be better physically, professionally and personally.”

On what she doesn’t like about her figure:

“I don’t have long legs. I never wear skinny jeans.”

On the “What’s your excuse?” photo:

“If I can make health a priority as a working mom of three kids who has struggled with bulimia and weight issues, then you can too!’

Her advice on avoiding junk food:

“There are healthier fast food options that are affordable (besides McDonald’s). for example, I like the $1.50 grilled chicken wraps from Taco Bell.”

Fit Mom Maria Kang: ‘You can tell fat people are unhealthy’

Fit Mom Maria Kang: ‘You can tell fat people are unhealthy’ | beauty body image

A while back, we featured a story about fit mom Maria Kang, who received a lot of social backlash after posting a picture with her slim and fit physique while asking the question: “What’s Your Excuse?”.

Here’s Part One of this story!

This week, Maria is in the middle of yet another controversy – this time, the fit mom got into an argument with Curvy Girl Inc, which is a lingerie line that posts unphotoshopped photos of their clients (who are size 12 plus) wearing the products. See their Facebook page here! Maria and Curvy Girl’s owner Chrystal Bougon had a filmed conversation on CNN, where Chrystal kept saying that her Facebook page does not allow fat or skinny shaming and she militated for body acceptance, while Maria insisted that the Curvy Girl photos “are not how real women look like or should look like” and that “a lot of people can just tell that a person is not healthy.” Check out the video and share your thoughts:

Fit Mom Maria Kang Asks: “What’s your excuse?”

Fit Mom Maria Kang Asks: What’s your excuse? | beauty body image

Maria Kang is niot exactly a celebrity, but this story deserves a post: this fit 32 year-old Californian mother of three has spurred a social backlash after posting a picture with her toned flat stomach showing while asking the question: “What’s Your Excuse?”. The reason why the photo has attracted national attention is that many seem to think that Maria is trying to shame overweight mothers / women. After the firestorm, the fit mom of three (who says that she is not naturally thin and works out a lot to look this way), posted on her Facebook page:

I’ve been getting an influx of new followers, emails and comments (on my profile pic) recently. Some saying I’m a bully, I’m fat-shaming and I need to apologize for the hurt I’ve caused women. I get it. SO here’s my First and Final Apology:

I’m sorry you took an image and resonated with it in such a negative way. I won’t go into details that I struggled with my genetics, had an eating disorder, work full time owning two business’, have no nanny, am not naturally skinny and do not work as a personal trainer. I won’t even mention how I didn’t give into cravings for ice cream, french fries or chocolate while pregnant or use my growing belly as an excuse to be inactive.

What I WILL say is this. What you interpret is not MY fault. It’s Yours. The first step in owning your life, your body and your destiny is to OWN the thoughts that come out of your own head. I didn’t create them. You created them. So if you want to continue ‘hating’ this image, get used to hating many other things for the rest of your life. You can either blame, complain or obtain a new level of thought by challenging the negative words that come out of your own brain.

With that said, obesity and those who struggle with health-related diseases is literally a ‘bigger’ issue than this photo. Maybe it’s time we stop tip-toeing around people’s feelings and get to the point.

So What’s Your Excuse?

What’s your take on this story?
