There are so many ways to change up your oatmeal! Oatmeal is a great, healthy, super easy meal any time of the day but I know I tend to fall into a flavor rut. I hope these ideas help you change it up and try out some new combos! One of my favorite ways to save time and money is to make my own flavor packs. Just pick whatever toppings you want and throw them in a microwave safe tupperware or mason jar. When you’re running out the door you can grab it and go (If you want fresh fruit just pack it and add later!).
Here’s a few of my favorite combos but get creative!
Berries Galore: dried cherries, fresh raspberries, fresh strawberries, my favorite jam, & chocolate chips
My Classic: golden raisins, dried cranberries, almonds, pecans, cinnamon, & pure vanilla
Tropical Tango: banana, coconut, agave & dried mango
Pumpkin Pie: pumpkin, walnuts, pumpkin pie spice, brown sugar
Papa Bear: honey, peanuts, banana, chocolate chips, cinnamon

Sweet potato oatmeal! Why have I never thought of that?!

frankielove1234 asked: I am going to a cosplay convention in October, I HAVE TO LOSE WEIGHT! I weigh probably around 190- 198 and I'm only 17, my weakness is soda and lack of motivation. I want to cosplay as Misty from Pokemon, Alice from Alice Madness Returns, and Baby Doll from Sucker punch (Its a 3 day convention) I need help! PLEASE HELP MEEEE!

Motivation is something that takes time to find. Not going to lie, after I gained all my weight back, I lost motivation to try and get back to where I was. There are cosplayers that I follow that are much smaller than me that I use to inspire and motivate me. Don’t let pop be your weakness! Let it be a treat for you! If there’s one thing I can say about dieting that I’m 100% certain of, it’s do not deprive yourself of the foods you love. Learn proper portion control. If you drink 4-5 cans a day, cut down a little at a time, until 1 can every few days is all you need. Eventually, you can pretty much ween yourself off it entirely. I used to drink the stuff like water, but now I stick with mostly actual water. I won’t even suggest to drink diet over regular, because diet pop is even worse for you than the normal stuff. 

Find a workout that you enjoy! Biking is one of my favorites, so it’s what I do to try and keep in shape (It’s finally starting to get nice in Ohio, so I can go out and do it again!)

Keep an eye on the food you consume, and your calorie intake. I use an app on my phone called MyFitnessPal, and it seriously is a godsend. As long as you are keeping up on your entries, you can keep tabs on your consumption, calories burned, and weight loss goals. Being able to physically see everything put my diet into perspective. I was eating so much more than I needed to be, and my slow metabolism wasn’t doing anything. 

And lastly, DO NOT GET DISCOURAGED! Your weight will fluctuate. A LOT. Being on your period will make you feel like a fat mess for a few days. Don’t weigh yourself then. It’ll make you feel worse than you already do. Measurements are one of the best ways to track your progress! Get a measuring tape, and take your current measurements. Every month or so, take them again! You’ll notice a difference that way usually before the scale decides to show progress. 

Weight loss is not meant to be deprivation. Enjoy the foods you always have, just learn the moderation needed to enjoy them less. Don’t be hard on yourself! Stay positive!  

Good luck!

"Your too fat."

"I didn’t know [insert character] was black!"

"Why don’t you do more black cosplays?"

"Cosplay to your size!"

"I don’t think that looks right on you, why don’t you cosplay [insert character] instead?"

"Why is [insert character] black? They’re not black in the show."

"You shouldn’t cross-play, it looks weird on you."

"Your boobs are too big for [insert character]."

To everyone who as ever posted a comment or question like this, my answer:

I am a black plus size female cosplayer, if you don’t like it… well honestly I don’t care. The more you comment like an idiot, the more it feeds my will power to prove I’m an amazing cosplayer, not matter what you say. I may have days, or even weeks when I feel down about myself, but that will never stop me from doing what I love. I may have large boobs, chubby stomach, double chin, hair on my face, dark spots around my face and body, and a flat butt, but I rock any cosplay I put on. So grow up, and get out of my face. <3

You go girl! Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t do what you want to do! Your cosplays look great!

Why Should I Eat Healthier?

Eating healthier has a lot of benefits - it gives your body the nutrients it deserves to have, making it more energetic, less prone to diseases (studies have shown it can lower the risk of any chronic disease, lower blood pressure risk, and may lower the risk of certain types of cancer) and provides you with a longer, healthier and happier life.
