Day Twenty-Seven- How do you deal with being around food?
EAT IT. That’s why I haven’t been losing weight recently :/
Day Twenty-Six- What excites you most about reaching your ugw?
Wearing my old, small clothes and shopping for new clothes in the city! Also shocking everyone who knew me when I was overweight!

This is brilliant! Definitely going to try this.
my hobbies include
- flexing my butt to the beat of whatever song I’m listening to
hahahahahaha I really do this way too often
“Muscle makes all the difference.”
Just to answer a few of the questions I received in one swoop: yes, this is me; the first photo was taken about a month after I started working out with a personal trainer; the second photo is four months after I started with the trainer. I posted this on Reddit’s ProgressPics forum and got a big response from women who were discouraged about their exercise when it seemed like they weren’t losing any pounds. Thought sharing this on my blog might help some others.
Building muscle is so important and makes a big difference in how I look and feel. I won’t even weigh myself anymore, but prefer to use visual references like this — there’s still plenty of room for improvement, but you can see that numbers aren’t all that matter.
this is beautiful and perfect.
So true. I’ve gained a couple pounds in the past month, but I think I look slimmer anyways. Strength training makes a huge difference!
Day Twenty-Five- Have you ever purged? If you have describe your first experience.
No, but I tried to a few times (I was the non-purging type of bulimic). IMO purging, like all other ED symptoms, isn’t always a sign of mental illness. Everyone overeats sometimes, and I don’t think it’s all that strange to wish you could get rid of the sometimes severe discomfort that follows. I’m not condoning it, and if you’re reading this I want you to NOT PURGE EVER but just because someone has purged before doesn’t mean they need to be sent to the looney bin.
August Promise!!! Seriously love you guys….the Tumblr fitspo community is kick ASS! xoxox And just want to say HEY to all my new followers and don’t be shy! I wanna hear from you all! Talk to me tumblebugs!

courage.: Why does caring about the rising "obesity issue" in our society mean that people think it's okay to hurt others? →
Today I was walking in the grocery store, and I was in the health section. There were three other people, two young men and an older woman. The guys were hovering over the protein bars or whatever, snickering. And at first I didn’t really take notice, I just figured they were sharing a laugh at…
There have always been and will always be assholes who laugh at strangers in supermarkets. They’re just assholes, not a metaphor for the dangers of our time. Writing them off as mere metaphors for societal trends seems to take the blame off the individual. If you witness bullying, tell the bullies to stop! Don’t just let them disappear as insignificant specks in the amorphous dust cloud of Cruel Society.
And I don’t think these guys were acting under any pretense of caring for her health.
A gem from my new “favorite” pro-ana blog. This is from a girl who claims to be a medical professional (fyi an associate’s degree in medical assisting doesn’t qualify you to diagnose ANYONE with ANYTHING. Not even yourself.). This is wrong in so many ways.
The comorbidity of anorexia nervosa and depression: not a misconception.
The idea that anorexia is the same as wanting to lose weight: HUGE misconception.
