I just love Raven-Symone!
I've always loved Raven-Symone! She is only a bit younger than me and I love her self-confidence, her business savvy, her frank honesty. I've always identified with her weight "issues" (although I am not actually sure she has any in her own head) because she looks absolutely stunning at any size. And if I do say so myself...so do I! LOL. No seriously, I gain about 20 lbs before people really see it. Like some may notice 10-15 lbs if I say something, but usually its about a 20 lbs fluctuation before I get comments. I'm very proportioned, and I maintain that hourglass figure (roughly) even at 170+ although it is much sloppier! I feel that is exactly how Raven-Symone is....when she is heavier, she still looks great because all the pieces are in proper "order". I mean the boobs are bigger than the stomach, thighs & hips are curvy, booty is rounder than belly, etc. So I've always identified with her body in my mind. As Wendy Williams says "she's been a friend in my head for years!" Anywhoooo, I noticed last year that she reportedly lost 35 lbs! How ironic is it that that is the exact amount of weight I am going to lose (notice I did not say trying to lose)?! HOW IRONIC THAT SHE WENT FROM 170 TO 135?!?!?!?! I don't know if or how she has maintained it, Speaking of Wendy, I actually just saw her on an episode of The Wendy Williams Show (note how she is ranting about blogs, don't worry girl, this is a good one! lol), and although she looked fabulous, to me she looked a just a tag heavier than when she was on Tyra. To my eye, she looked svelte & healthy at both appearances, and I know she does not desire to be thin but HOORAY for losing to a healthy weight!!! That's how you campaign being curvy & healthy!!! Go Raven!
