1. Hot guy in front of you
2. Creepy guy behind you
is so tall, skinny, and gorgeous in real life.
Pictures and videos do no justice.
Even more motivation to work out.
For the past few weeks, I’ve been working out except the last five days because of health issues. I can’t afford to lose one day of workout because it catches up with me, fast. I compared the pictures I took between last week and this week and there was a difference.
I really, really can’t afford to lose one day of workout.
I think I’m addicted to working out now…
But what makes me sad is that society thinks “skinny” = beautiful.
“I didn’t eat for a week! I’m so strong, I must keep going.” Sure, you’re strong for keeping that up. But in reality, without the proper nutrition, without food, your body is getting weaker and weaker, leading to all sorts of problems.
Yes, I’m a girl and of course, I admire a slim figure. A healthy, slim figure.
Tone stomach with a hint of abs > thinspo/hip bones
“You know why she has a boyfriend? Because she’s skinny.
You know people love her? Because she’s skinny.
You know why she’s sexy? Because she’s skinny.”
I’m pretty sure guys find a healthy, slim body much sexier than a body with bones sticking out. To be honest, some girls look much more attractive before losing all those weight. Hilary Duff, for example.
Demi Lovato, yes, she gained weight and personally, I think she looks much more beautiful now. She has an eating disorder; she used to perform on stage on an empty stomach, she starved herself. But now, she’s healthy and she’s in a great shape.
All these young girls on tumblr reblogging pictures of anorexic girls make me want to cry. Girls as young as thirteen years old are starving themselves. Their bodies are in good shape and yet, they still hear how hideous and fat they are.
There are people out there dying because they don’t have enough food and here, people are purposefully starving themselves because they think they’re not beautiful enough.
And don’t assume I don’t know “how it feels.” You don’t think I’ve been told I’m fat? You don’t think I’ve been told to lose weight? You don’t think I’ve cried myself to sleep, tried giving up food? You don’t think I wished I was “as gorgeous as her”?
I know how it feels. That’s why I want to be somebody’s support. I want to help someone stay strong before they feel like they’re about to fall. I want to help them stay strong enough to help somebody else.
Be confident in your body; be confident in yourself.

(Ugh, where’s my best friend to take the words out of my mouth when I need her? She can put everything I want to say in less than a novel)
