WHO IS ANNA WILLIAMS?

BEFORE YOU READ: THIS IS NOT A PRO-ANA OR PRO-MIA SITE. HOWEVER, I DO RESPECT AND OFFER COMFORT AND SUPPORT TO THOSE WHO SUFFER FROM THOSE EATING DISORDERS. THIS BLOG IS ABOUT MUCH MORE THAN JUST FOOD AND WEIGHT ISSUES. ANTES DE LER: ESTE BLOG NÃO É PRO-ANA OU PRO-MIA. NO ENTANTO EU RESPEITO E OFERECO CONFORTO E APOIO PARA AS PESSOAS QUE SOFREM DESTES TRANSTORNOS ALIMENTARES. ESTE BLOG É MUITO MAIS QUE APENAS UM BLOG SOBRE COMIDA E PROBLEMAS COM PESO.

WHO AM I?

My internet name is ANNA WILLIAMS: a tribute to my best friend in middle school, whose name is ANNA and to women I admire and my dad admired (he passed away in 2003) : Serena Williams, Venus Williams and Vanessa Williams (the first two are tennis players, the latter is an actress, but she is also a singer and she lost her title as Miss America for ludicrous reasons. Yes, they're all black women. No, I'm not related to them, neither do I even look like them. They are all amazing in their own way, but I AM WHAT I AM, my own special creation. I look like my mom, dad and family members)
I am a 40-year old woman who has lived in 4 different countries(USA,Australia,New Zealand, currently in Norway)learned 3 languages besides her own (Spanish,English,Norwegian)and has enjoyed a little bit of modeling, lots of traveling, heaps of teaching and learning... I am educated as an EFL and ESL teacher and I have a Masters in Education in English Literacy. I am Brazilian: a mixture of Polish, Indigenous Brazilian and Black Brazilian. I am a person, not a color.
Modeling was just a hobby. I was NEVER a super or top model. I don't even fit the characteristics. I am 5ft4 - 5ft6 (not sure because I've been measured several times and I come out looking taller or shorter depending on where I am measured. I'm ALWAYS MEASURED WITHOUT SHOES , so it's not that) While modeling I weighed 96 - 137 pounds and ironically enough got more jobs when I was at the heaviest end of the scale. I was NEVER FAT, but I do have a latent eating disorder. Don't try to understand me. If you read this blog you will realize it's about my relationship with food and also about who ANNA WILLIAMS is. My alterego, my internet persona who helps me cope with everyday situations. I spend 99% of my time with my daughter. I leave www.justin.tv on as background noise when I'm at home and in between chores sometimes I browse through channels and even talk to people, but my main occupation is MOM:-) I also have a job at a hotel as ''extra help'' and at a school as a substitute Spanish teacher. But my degree is in ENGLISH and LITERATURE in that language.

If you like me and want to see my videos go to my youtube channel www.youtube.com/safiwantstolive and also follow my justin.tv channel www.justin.tv/safi_anna . I am not a porn star, stripper or any other kind of sexually oriented professional. None of my ''shows'' are sexual. If you interpret them that way, you're a fucking loser.

It's ok if porn stars want to make money that way. I respect them as I respect strippers, but I am not and never have I been in those professions. I was a model for a while and I am highly educated, never needed to struggle for money because my parents in Brazil supported me financially. My father was an engineer who went to university for 6 years, my mother is educated as a teacher and they gave me the best upbringing a person can have.

Yes, I wear tiny clothes and bikinis. My Brazilian culture allows me to do that in a natural way and it really doesn't have anything to do with sex. Again, if you think it does, you're a loser.

I also do shows on battlecam, none of them are sexual either. People who masturbate to random women who are moving around in a non-sexual way and singing on the internet, whether they are in a bikini or in regular clothing are mentally disturbed. That's just my opinion.

I don't need or want your attention, to be perfectly honest with you: my least favorite part of all channels (tinyshit, jtv, battlecam, etc) IS THE CHAT ROOM. People either suck up too much or they insult you. There are very few nice/regular people to talk to. I don't like small talk, my shows are my time to express my creativity. People who come in with ''Hi, Anna! How are you today?'' sometimes don't realize that.

The third season of my show, HOWEVER, was ALL FOR THE FANS. I HAVE BEEN CHATTING MORE AND DEDICATING MORE TIME TO THE CHATTERS, VIEWERS AND FANS WHO CARE ENOUGH TO FOLLOW ME ON THE INTERNET THROUGHOUT ALL DIFFERENT STREAMING SITES:-)

Refrigerante dá Celulite?

Antes de ler, vocês devem acreditar no que quiserem acreditar. Acho até que quando se acredita em algo, isto acaba se tornando verdade. Então mesmo sabendo que o que eu estou postando tem embasamento científico, fica a critério do leitor ou leitora acreditar ou não. Eu acredito nas pesquisas:-) (a foto é de 1998, eu estava com uns 65 quilos ainda me recuperando do peso ganho na Australia)

A resposta é Não. Se você já leu isto em algum lugar deve ter sido em uma fonte não médica ou científica porque até hoje não foi encontrada uma causa da celulite relacionada ao consumo de refrigerantes. O refrigerante comum causa aumento de peso porque contém acúcar e o aumento de peso causa celulite. O refrigerante light não tem calorias e não engorda. Eu conto calorias e pesquiso assuntos de dieta há 20 anos e não acredito que celulite tenha algo a ver com refrigerante light. Uma das fontes que eu encontrei foi https://www.inwithfitness.com/resources/articles/Trisha/archive/2007/2/6/1147/The-Truth-About-Cellulite.aspx Está tudo em Inglês, mas este é um site sério e as informacões são baseadas em pesquisas sérias. Segundo ele, a celulite é genética e não tem cura exatamente. O que você pode fazer é diminuir a sua aparência, mas nunca eliminá-la. Emagrecer ajuda, mas mesmo assim existem mulheres magras que tem celulite. Eu já estou em paz com a celulite há vários anos porque sei que ela existe mesmo quando estou mais magra que agora.
A parte que realmente interessa no artigo está aqui falando nas causas da celulite e ele não cita refrigerante.
Cita hormônios, componentes hereditários e gordura. Se houver mais interesse depois posso postar mais sobre o assunto.

What causes cellulite?

Several factors contribute to cellulite, including diet as well as a sluggish blood and lymphatic circulation, which allows wastes to accumulate. But three contributing agents determine whether you develop cellulite: heredity, estrogen, and fat. If just one of those ingredients is missing, you don't have cellulite, just plain ordinary fat.

You usually inherit cellulite, that is, if your mom has it -- and by "it" we mean loose connective tissue, which fat globules pop up through -- chances are you do or will too, even if you're thin. As connective tissue weakens with age, the dimpling becomes even more pronounced. If you have thin skin, which is also hereditary, cellulite is even easier to see than it is on thicker skin. If your mother has cellulite, you've probably inherited her loosely woven connective tissue and poor lymphatic drainage, which leads to bunched-up fat cells. And as you now know, cellulite is more than just fat: It's fat trapped by a network of connective tissue fibers. If the underlying network is loosely woven, the fat bulges through the fibers, causing a "cottage cheese" effect on the skin. As connective tissue weakens with age, the dimpling becomes even more pronounced.

The fibers that extend from the muscle up through the fat and connect to the undersurface of the skin run directly up and down, perpendicularly, at a 90-degree angle, which allows bulging and puckering. In men, the fibers I mentioned run in a crisscross, at a 45-degree angle, so the fat is less likely to bulge up like it does in women.

  1. Oi Safi, o que dá celulite é GORDURA e refri não tem gordura!!! Claro que refri com açúcar aumenta o peso e consequentemente a gordura aumenta causando a celulite, mas a causa é a gordura. Aqueles pontinhos que ficam, parecendo uma enponja, é gordura entre as células da pele.
    Vim desejar um bom ano novo pra vc, que vc conquiste tudo em 2009.
