I started my diet today.
And then I found this picture to taunt me!
(Daily Mail) – These incredible pictures show motivational speaker Nick Vujicic and his new wife on the beach in Hawaii, frolicking like any other couple on their honeymoon.
Vujicic was born with no limbs, a crippling disability that meant he had little hope of ever living a normal life.
Tetra-amelia syndrome is a rare disorder characterised by the absence of both arms and legs.
Vujicic was born to Serbian immigrants in Melbourne, Australia, but the couple now live in California.
Now a best-selling author, Vujicic suffered from depression as a child, but as he got older he eventually began to embrace his disability.
The teen mastered life’s daily tasks and went on to show that he can do everything that able bodied people can do-including writing, typing, play drums, brush his teeth.
Aged 17 he began giving talks at a church group and went on to found a non-profit to use his experience to help others.
In 2005 Vujicic was nominated for the ‘Young Australian of the Year’ Award.
But the preacher and author of ‘Life Without Limbs’ has now found true happiness – he last week got married.
And today, the bestselling author and his beautiful new wife Kanae Miyahara, were seen having the time of their lives, as they began married life in Hawaii.
The agile Vujicic had no difficulty taking using his camera to take photos of his stunning bride.
The couple got engaged in August and married on February 10th in California.

On Nick’s Facebook page, congratulatory remarks poured in from fans from around the world. Nick, 29, has addressed over three million people in 25 countries.
I see that you guys have dogs that are excited to see you when you get home.
This is my dog when I get home.
(Daily Mail By DAMIEN GAYLE) – At first glance, this picture might just looks like a photocopy of a man’s face squashed up against a photocopier.
But look more closely and it becomes clear it is actually made up from a phenomenal 3.2million tiny dots.
Miguel Endara from Miami, Florida, spent almost a year creating this 11in by 17in portrait of his father – meticulously positioning each tiny dot by hand.
Mr Endara said: ‘I’m a great admirer of stippling, so I decided to create this portrait of my father using this technique to experience this incredible art form for myself.
‘I’ve always wanted to pay tribute to my father for being a great person.
‘His personality is warm and unquestionably friendly, and of course very playful – as you can see in the unflattering drawing he agreed to participate in.
‘We scanned a series of images of his face, and the final portrait is an amalgamation of those photos.’
Over 11 months, Miguel spent 210 hours painstakingly completing the picture using a single Sakura Pigma Micron pen with a nib of just 0.2mm.
He added: ‘The number of dots is an approximation, not an exact number. But it’s a very, very close approximation.
‘I filmed myself in just about every section of my drawing and got an average of 4.25 dots per second, which translated into 3,213,000 dots if you multiply that by 210 hours, which is what I logged in for the drawing.’
