"Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going."
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

“ayo basic thing is im a transman with a fairly feminine figure. are there any exersizes you would reccomend to burn hip and butt fat and gain shoulder muscle/in general get a more masculine figure? thank u”
The idea of burning fat from a specific area is called “spot reduction”, and unfortunately it’s a myth. *moment of silence* I know, I was upset too when I found out, but it is physically impossible to pick and choose where your body loses fat. Your body will just do it from wherever the hell it chooses. Damn body. However, I can help you with the muscle growth. That you can control! Lots of upper body exercises. HEAVY. 8-12 reps 50-60% your one rep max weight. Stay slow. Count to 4 on the way up and on the way down. 2-3 Sets. The Super-Set System and Split Routines are best for muscle gain.
The Super-Set System: same muscle group (2 exercises) back to back with no rest (anterior deltoid, medial deltoid - two shoulder muscles). Or 2 exercises for opposing muscle groups back to back (bicep and tricep). Best for hypertrophy (muscle growth) and muscular endurance
Split Routine: Training different muscle groups on separate days. Arms one day, core next, legs, etc. Numerous exercises on one body part. Used by body builders and strength athletes. Best for optimal hypertrophy.
Also, bonus. Although out can’t pick and choose where you lose your fat, the more muscle you have, the more calories you burn and the more fat you burn in general! :)
Just because you might not have solid abs or quad separation or a giant firm butt or whatever doesn’t mean you’re not working hard. so this post is for people who are busting their asses and their bodies don’t show it 👏
the true american experience is wondering if you just heard firecrackers or gunshots
PLEASE TELL ME THIS IS A JOKE
bonus points: both are illegal in your state and you still cannot tell
Extra bonus points: when you move to one of those few cities where firecrackers are legal and wonder if someone’s just having innocent fun or getting away with murder because everyone will just think “oh it’s a firecracker. Let’s continue eating dinner.”
Think Anorexia is funny? Sorry. I am a survivor and find NOTHING cute about this.
Wanna dress up like an Anorexic? All it takes is:
4 years of hospitalization
A nasogastric feeding-tube because you’ve starved yourself so much that your body doesn’t recognize food as a good thing and tries to attack itself.
Re-Feeding Syndrome, which can kill you.
Emotional struggles for years.
A father crying and pleading on his knees begging for you to get help
A mother who cries every time she sees you because you look and SMELL like death.
Holidays missed, birthdays crying in a hospital.
Almost every major organ in your body failing.
A shower chair - because you can’t stand in the shower because you’re too weak and the warm water could make you pass out.
A wheelchair, because you are too weak to walk and it could make you go into cardiac arrest.
A lifetime of medications for anxiety and the health issues “Anna Rexia” caused.
Plenty of money for multiple ER trips due to “Anna Rexia” even in recovery.
And if you don’t get help like I do, or even if you do, a coffin. Because I’ve lost more friends to this eating disorder then anything I’ve ever faced.
I almost died from this. I know it’s supposed to be funny and shit and yeah I get that, but seriously. THIS IS NOT FUNNY. Anorexia is nothing to party about or laugh at. It’s real, it’s deadly, and should not be marketed as a slutty outfit.
Want to dress as “Anna Rexia”? Just go as a Vampire, or a Zombie. Because 1/3 of us are dead.
