Another reason why you should ditch the scale…
Remember, that’s 3,500 calories OVER your maintanence level. It’s not just consuming 3,500 calories, it’s consuming 3,500 more calories than your body uses during exercise, digestion, breathing, thinking, dreaming, talking, etc
This so hard. Any extra weight gain you see after a binge/party/piece of birthday cake/night of long island ice teas (ahem) is just water weight.
So many more people need to understand this.
I think I need to do a before&after, but I’m kind of apprehensive about putting that up on tumblr. This place is a black hole of constant reblogs; once something goes in, it never comes out. But, I feel like I need to put it *somewhere* so that I have a place to go and remember that yes, my body has actually changed a lot since I first started trying to be more fit/active/generally awesome. Because for some reason I am still like, 18lbs or so heavier in my head. (And I know that doesn’t sound like a lot when other people are losing over 100lbs, but I’m 5’3” and every little bit shows up.)
It’s super bizarre how long it takes your brain to catch up with the reality of your physical self. I guess I need a way of having outside validation that I’ve made progress without feeling like an attention seeker?
I don’t know. Suggestions on what I should do would be awesome, though!
is seeing people post a picture of two girls, where one girl is a little bigger than the other, and they write “who would you rather be” or something like that. seriously, people need to stop doing that, it’s so fucking rude! how would you feel is someone had posted a picture of you saying crap like that? some random fuck from the internet referring to you as “the fat friend”, if that happened to me i would be devastated. people need to understand one thing, even though you hate your own body doesn’t mean you have the right to make other people feel that way too. to all people posting those things, you know how it feels to dislike something about yourself, would you really want to throw that feeling on another person? maybe that girl likes her body, then sees what you have written and get really fucking insecure and sad because of what you wrote. just please, stop it!
Whenever I try to ease up on a pose (usually because I’m afraid of actually following through), my teachers push me. If I did the wheel pose once, I don’t really get away with not doing it again (unless there’s some injury preventing me from doing so). And, you know, I gotta say I really love that. The accountability is great, but also when someone makes you push past your own fear and insecurity and do something. It’s really nice and just liberating. And oddly peaceful

My SERIOUS question is: How do bigger models have no pooch on their tummy? Do they just not get one because of their diet and exercise or is it just their body types? I don’t get it.
^ well, photoshop helps.
Plus-size models are still models. So, their proportions aren’t standard even if they’re not runway thin. And they’re taller than average. Also, yeah, photoshop helps, heh.
