I hope to be the shining light in the dark world of thinspo, unhealthy advice and incorrect information. Life is about being happy and loving yourself, and that includes your body. Feed it with the foods it loves, let it run free, treat it to a nice dinner and some wine every now and again and your body will take care of you too. <3

“You told that last anon tha bmi doesn't account for body mass but you do know that bmi stands for body mass index right? I know bmi doesn't always accurately determine a persons health I guess I was just confused by your wording”
-Anonymous

I will admit my wording was a bit confusing in fact I think the name of it is a bit confusing on it’s own… body mass index is simply based on an individual’s height and weight. So in that sense it’s your overall weight compared to how tall you are. However, it doesn’t take into account the mass ratio of fat to muscle. As everyone knows “muscle weighs more than fat” when it comes to comparable mass. A slender person with a lot of muscle and a larger person with more fat can weigh the exact same and both be considered “overweight” according to BMI. This is why I don’t like it. I also don’t like using weight in general as a basis for whether or not you are a healthy weight. That number on the scale doesn’t mean shit when it comes to your health.

“okay, so im in school. we go from 7:00 to 2:55. and i have no time to workout plus my family is embarassing.. what is a good workout i could do to like get a thigh gap, or lose alittle weight from my tummy..”
-Anonymous

I have school from the exact same time as well as work. Just workout afterwards or get up really early in the morning. However, if you’re a night owl like me, trying to get yourself up early in the morning is just setting yourself up for failure hahaha. No way you’re getting my butt up to be energetic. As for your family… how are they embarrassing? If they try to embarrass you for working out then ignore them. They’re just jealous you’re getting all fit and healthy and they’re sitting on the couch :) They should be supporting you in your quest for health. A good workout would be cardio 5-6 days a week and strength training 2-3 days a week. I still need to update my FAQ, but the section on types of strength training for different goals is still accurate. As for the thigh gap and tummy… for one a thigh gap has more to do with your body structure than body fat/mass. I will never have a thigh gap because I’m simply not built for one (unless I am sickly thin). I would not make “thigh gap” a goal to strive for. Make health and happiness your goals. Once you make positive changes in your lifestyle you’ll start feeling better about yourself and happier. :D And where weight around your tummy is concerned… this also goes along with thigh gap to an extent…. the thought of losing fat from a specific area is called spot reduction and it’s a myth. You can’t pick and choose where you lose fat, your body does that for you and everyone’s does it differently. Just stick to eating healthy and exercising and health, fitness and happiness will all fall into place <3

“So I'm a senior, 156 lbs, and 5'3". Does this classify me as overweight? Because I just feel like the fattest person in the world sometimes.”
-Anonymous

If you go to the doctors, where they use BMI index, then they would say yes. However, I don’t like the BMI. It doesn’t take into account body mass. You could have a bunch of muscle and be considered obese but look rather slender. I won’t tell you you’re overweight. If you don’t feel healthy, make a change in your life. Eat healthy and exercise and your body will take care of itself.

“Hi okay so I'm starting diet and plan on losing weight before school starts in about August- September so that's about 4 months and I'm trying to lose about 40- 50 pounds do you think it's possible? and give you give me some tips/ advice on how I can do it? Thank you :)”
-Anonymous

Weight loss is different for a lot of people. If you are very heavy, 40-50lbs is doable but very very difficult. If you’re of average weight and want to be thin, it may be impossible. Also, for the majority of people, losing that much weight is unhealthy all on its own and usually results in gaining it all back later and then some. The longer it takes you to lose the weight, statistically the greater chance you have of keeping it off. A healthy weight loss is 1.5-2lbs per week. Slow and steady wins the race. I would say a more realistic goal would be about 24-32 lbs. If you set your sights this high and the chances of reaching it do not match your sights, you will most likely be disappointing yourself because you set an unrealistic goal. Set specific, attainable, realistic goals in a doable amount of time. <3

this is what heterophobia would look like if it was real. if you believe that heterophobia is a real thing that exists, please watch this because you will see that it simply doesn’t exist, that it never has and never will. 

tbh I think everyone should watch this anyway because it’s very clever and very powerful

If you want to watch something similar to this concept watch a movie called “Almost Normal”; it’s movie about a gay man who wakes up in a world very similar to this video though it is not as heavy as the one above it is still quite profound. Be warned that the video above has suicide and extreme bullying.

DUDE.  Not only does this address the above mentioned issues, it addresses assumed gender roles as well, which is amazing to see in context.  This is spectacular.

Take a whiff of that perspective.

“what's some good cardio to lose fat from ur butt”
-Anonymous

The concept of losing fat from a specific area is called spot reduction, and unfortunately it’s a myth. You can not lose fat from an area of your choosing. You can try all you want, but it just doesn’t happen like that. The body loses fat from everywhere all over your body, some spots more than others, but nevertheless your body chooses not you. Cardio in general aids in fat loss and strength training aids even further. The more muscle you have the more calories you burn, but like I said, you can’t pick and choose where. Yes you will gain muscle, but by doing squats you just increase number of calories burnt, not that they be coming from your rear end. Mix cardio (5-6days per week) with strength training (2-3 days per week) eat healthy and your body will take care of itself <3

thats right, just a one pound difference here. do not pay attention to the number on the school. this is about a four month difference and I becamse extremely frustrated when the number on the scale didn’t budge. It was so discouraging and I was starting to make so many excuses.
This past week I’ve been more motivated than ever to reach my goal!
