Nta, but I'd like to get into lifting. How does it cause weight loss? Have you found a good routine or tutorial for beginners online that's specifically for women?
The only woman I know who lifts has huge thighs but it'd be better than being fat tbh.
Muscles burn more calories a hour than fat does. So more muscle = more calories burned in a day. If you eat less calories every day than you burn you will lose weight.
Lifting/exercise is not mandatory for weight loss but I find it undoable without because of how little calories I naturally burn a day (around 1400 or so, going with a deficit of 500 means eating 900 calories a day, that is not enough to get all the nutrients to stay healthy and keep nice skin and hair)
i don't have a guide, but lifting doesn't cause much muscle gain in the beginning. you can stop gaining muscle by just not increasing weight on certain areas, legs, arms etc. and just uping the reps, which builds strength but doesn't affect the look. i generally just stick to my core area for more weight because it takes so long to get muscle definition there. just make sure not to only work the same area and do atleast legs, arm and core in your routine.
like others have said, it ups the amount of calories you burn in general, so it's easier to cut less without any gain. i've seen a lot of positive results while still maintaining my general shape. i usually use leg press, ab press and bench. leg press and bench firm your chest and ass muscle so it give me some perks there (lol). sometimes i'll do leg lift and thigh machine, but i have trouble with my calves.
hope that's helpful. and sorry for not having other resources, i work out with my guy friend who helped me set up a routine, but i am sure there's some resources out there.

Hey if it helps I went from 130 to 230 (Fuck pros) to 120.
Don’t give up I know larger people than you that have lost a lot of weight ( I would send you my PTs name he does stuff online but really it’s up to you)
You can do this anon
I believe in you
You can do this anon, just set your goals a bit closer and gradually go towards your end goal.
Good for you to not go for the easy solution, losing the weight naturally is a lot better in the long run and surgery will always bring complications at some point. Also, you will be so much more proud of yourself when you've done it all by yourself.
Take it from a former fattie, once you get into a healthier lifestyle you will feel a lot better too and you won't even want to go back.
do you mind if i ask you how your skin coped with that weight change?
i was 88lbs at 5'8" but after all the medication and metabolism shit and five years of sitting on my arse cry-eating i'm 240. i'd love to be back at my pre-ana healthy weight of 140 but i don't know if it's a lost cause and my skin is just gonna turn into an elephant skin apron
thanks so much anon! that’s some great advice. hideous stretch marks i can just about cope with (already covered in marks and scars) but loose skin would be difficult, so feeling a lil more hopeful..
hope you’re doing ok, going through changes like that are really hard.

Pic related would be my absolute dream; thin, but not 'ana-tier'
I've always wanted to be a model and did some pretty unhealthy stuff to reach low weights when i was younger. Afterwards i gained all the weight back plus a lot more.
Now i'm 180 at 5 ft 10 (before i started the whole losing weight thing i was naturally at 135)
I absolutely need to lose that extra weight because the way i look now really fucks up my confidance…
The problem is, that i don't really know how; and i absolutely love to eat, especially sweets and fast food, huge portions etc., so when i try to start a diet, i can never keep it up for even a single day…
Please help me anons

i went from 160 to my current 118 over the course of three years, and as someone who also loves food and has a massive sweet tooth, my biggest piece of advice is to just keep it out of the house until you can trust yourself to portion it wisely. also consult the internet about recipes for food you love, but healthier versions. i will never be able to eat entirely clean because i really enjoy shitty food. the key is to have it in moderation and mostly save it for special occasions, which makes it taste even better imo.
ultimately it comes down to self-control.
you're also accustomed to big portion sizes which means you'll be super hungry when dieting, and that's just a feeling you'll either need to get used to until your stomach shrinks, OR you can fill yourself up with things like broccoli which you can eat a ton of for few calories.
1) don't drink your calories. drink way more water, which fills you up and improves your skin. win-win.
2) set a certain time at night when you don't eat anymore. this isn't because of some bullshit "whatever you eat thirty minutes before bed will turn into fat" bullshit. for me, it stops me from snacking and adding extra calories. i'm done eating for the day at 8 PM since i go to bed at 10 PM.
3) download myfitnesspal and track everything honestly. most of the time you don't realise how many calories or servings of salt you're eating. eventually you'll be able to recognise portion sizes or what foods will fit your calorie goals/fill you up without needing to input everything into the app, but to begin with it's very helpful.

I'm the same way anon. I used to eat like garbage basically all the time and when I hit early twenties I packed on an extra 35 pounds. Just know, you can still eat your garbage. If you can't let it go, and most people can't, don't get into the mentality of "diet, I can't eat this" or "oh I have to be healthy now I have to give it up forever". I lost all my weight and got healthier by just limiting and light exercise. I started doing cardio for half an hour, to an hour. It sucked at first but now I burn so much I can eat fast food, but not worry about it. I also feel better and look better than before.
With fast food though I started to make sure I get less than what I used to, like a single burger opposed to double. Once you get healthier and your portions get smaller it will happen naturally. At first you will want more, but it will get easier. With sweets, I still have something sweet everyday but it's like just a fun size chocolate bar or a staple of mine, oatmeal with some frozen raspberries and like a tiny bit of melting chocolate. Find healthier alternatives (with the internet it's easy, you will find tons of healthy sweet things), or make it just small treats, you will get used to it. Once you get into just a little self control, it goes a long way, so start small and grow from there. I believe in you.
I personally just love the 'aesthetic'; but on the other hand i also love my body enough to not want to harm it with anything extreme, but instead try and find a healthy way to achieve my goals.
People who are anorexic also don't know when to stop, they'll always want to go further; i don't.
Damn I'm sorry for not replying to you guys earlier. Thanks for the support.
I started slow, by replacing regular milk with Almond milk and sugar with honey. Honey is more expensive, but it lasts longer.
I don't think I have PCOS, but I would love to know more about it from someone who has it.
You never eat before
unless you haven't shit for 5 days, it is absolute bs. colon is generally unidirectional and, assuming you're healthy, there are no mystery pockets or whatever where extra shit could get caught up in.
maybe your gain is from muscle or water weight? i have weighed the same last 5 years yet my measurements have gotten smaller bc I've toned up. also my weight generally tends to vary by like 5 pounds depending on sodium intake or where i am in my cycle
i'm 5'1'' and was at about 108 pounds before i got medication for a separate issue. now i'm down to 100 pounds.
unfortunately, i think its just genetics. even at my highest weight and had skinny limbs and carried my weight around my hips. you might just have more muscle than the average person, in which case you could look into keto dieting.
I'm 5'2 and 125 lbs. I carry very little weight in my chest area, but have wide shoulders and no collar bones… I'm basically built like a fridge and it's kinda unflattering. The only things redeeming about my body shape is that I have wide hips, a bit of ass, really tiny wrists, and nice calves. I'm trying to loose weight and get back to my pre college weight at 107. At my current height, my lowest weight was at 102 (but that was in middle school) and highest at 132, but I've never seen my collar bones. I go to the gym 5 times a week for an hour and a half of mixed cardio and weight lifting. I use to do kickboxing in college and bike as transportation, but did eat rather unhealthy and drank a lot of alcohol, which caused the weight gain. However, I don't drink alcohol, sugary drinks, eat dairy or most process foods anymore yet my weight isn't going down. I've tried eating at a deficient, which allows me to lose weight fast, but it isn't sustainable since I'm not as sharp at work, and as soon as I let up, I gain the weight back instantly. I'm not too sure what to do except workout even more , so I've been looking into procedures such as cool sculpting and kybella. Do any of you have any experience in this? It would be nice to hear some stories.
Don't focus purely on your weight. Sometimes the scale simply doesn't move, even if you're doing everything right. Your body fat percentage is a more important factor. I would suggest monitoring your progress by not just weighing yourself, but also by measuring various parts of your body (waist, thighs, hips, etc.) once per week.
Regarding your diet - you could try intermittent fasting. I've been doing it for a month now and have been definitely seeing results. You should probably start with 16 hours of fasting and 8 hours reserved for eating. Later, you can extend the fasting window. Don't overeat or binge during your eating window though, as that defeats the purpose. Try to limit your sugar and carb intake (but you don't have to cut out carbs entirely) and be informed about how much calories the food you consume has.
Use this calculator to find out how many calories you should consume per day in order to maintain your weight and then utilize this information: https://tdeecalculator.net
. For example, if your daily maintenance amount is 2000 calories, I would suggest to consume around 1500 calories per day if you want to lose weight.
Apart from fasting, I also exercise 6 times per week. I suggest exercising during your fasting period, even though it may be difficult at first, but it gives you the best results. You don't need to exercise for a hour and a half, 40 minutes is enough. I reserve one day to train a particular section of the body (Monday: arms and shoulders, Wednesday: legs and butt, Friday: abs and core). During those days, I tend to complete 3 related exercises from Youtube (from channels such as XHIT Daily, Runtastic Fitness, BeFiT, etc.) and I end it all with one HIIT exercise (you can start with HIIT exercises for beginners, as this could be also difficult at first). On Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, I only do cardio on my training bike.
So far, I've lost weight and built a lot of muscle, so I'm definitely going to continue with this regime.
I hope this helps and wish you luck!
I am restricting. I have trouble with regular excercise so I figured that not eating would help with losing weight.
God, now writing this out I realise that I'm anachan and that I don't belong in this thread.
More on topic, what can I do to build muscle tone? I'm mostly concerned with shaping my legs and stomach. I really don't want to starve myself to get to the point I want to be at, but I'm shit at exercise and I don't even know where to start.
nta but restricting doesn't really work unless you make it a lifestyle.
what exercise are you bad at and why? i have asthma and i switched over to lifting. it doesn't have as many short term benefits as cardio, but it stabilizes your metabolism and intake so you don't need to restrict. I've lost a lot of fat/inches even though my weight hasn't shifted (just turned into muscle)
That's another tip I want to mention. Focus on measurements not weight. Weight is meaningless if you don't look like you lost it.
I'm bad at most exercise because I never really did it for all my life, I am extremely weak and short of breath in seconds.
I did yoga, but I couldn't even keep that up because I'm shit at following a schedule.
I guess I need to train myself into that, my habits will never change if I'm only crying about them.

No matter what I try, not being at the weight I always imagined myself in my dreams is the main thing that hinders me from truly being happy. So, I decided once again that I should try and lose weight.
Right now I'm at a BMI of 25, the lowest I ever was (long ago and achieved unhealthily) was 17-18 and my goal would be around 16 (5'10/178cm, 115 lbs/52kg).
Is it possible?
And if yes how? What should I eat? How many calories (since I'm tall, more than 1200 or not)? What exercises and how often/long?
Right now I eat mostly carbs (not really a fan of meat). I occasionally go for a run, but it doesn't seem to affect my weight in any way. My main problem is eating out of stress (and boredom). Sadly, I love anything sugary and salty way too much. The only good thing I currently do is not drinking anything other than water.
Depending on your activity level, you should be aiming for between 1680 to 2170. 1680 would roughly be around maintenance for you at 5'10 and 115lbs, but obviously that isn't set in stone. If you were to go to the gym 3-5 days a week and work out to a point where you are challenging yourself/can't hold a full conversation while exercising, then you'd need to aim for the top end of 2170. For that, and seeing as you prefer carbs, I'd say your macros for 2170 are 300g carbs, 123g protein (aim for your body weight in protein a day!) and 45g fat. For the lower end (1680) I'd say go for 205g carbs, 124g protein and 37g fat. If you choose to go for anything between that then just bump it all up a bit/lower it etc. Food wise, try and have a source of protein, carb and vegetable on your plate. Cottage cheese is amazing as it's low calorie but protein dense
With regards to exercise, do compound lifts as your main routine. Deadlift, bench press, squat, shoulder press. You don't have to be lifting insane weights. Start with high reps at a lighter weight if you're new to lifting until you get your form down, then start trying something a bit more challenging. A 10kg/22lb barbell should be enough for any new starter to practice the moves. You wont get massively muscular or buff by doing weight lifting, because women aren't built for that. It will, however, stop you looking thin and saggy. You will have a solid form under your fat loss and will generally look better. Keep cardio to a minimum - circuit training or sprints on the treadmill to get your heart rate up are better for you than churning out hours at 4mph. And also feel free to supplement the weights with other body weight or machine exercises. Try and build a focus for each day so you're not tiring yourself out and getting bored, for example - Monday leg day, Tuesday chest and back, Wednesday arms and abs, Thursday shoulders and bum and Friday mix it up.
That's just what I've been doing and I have seen great results. I am 5'8" and 123lbs. I want to get to 118lbs to look more cut. The scale and BMI says that is underweight, but I have a small frame and I look the best I have ever looked in my life. Hope that helps, anon.
It's possible to lose weight, but you might be setting yourself up for failure with such a low goal to start.
That said, just try planning your meals ahead of time and doing prep for anything that can be prepped on Sundays and in the evening. This includes snack portions. It's helpful to have a food plan for your day.
52kg at 178cm seriously sounds like ana goals. Why not go for 56kg? And maybe add some muscle. (then you get the bonus of being able to eat more!)
If you get sick and can't eat you're gonna have a bad time.

ngl anon, you inspired me to try and wear my retainers every night, instead of just when I feel guilty. I'm trying to put them in around 8pm, so I don't eat anymore after that.
For what it's worth, I'm currently 5'2, 123 lbs. I never really weighed myself back in the day, but I'd be happy anywhere in the 100-110 range. I honestly feel like exercising never did much for me weight-wise, calorie counting seems to work better for me for whatever reason. Also, I live in the freezing midwest, I love going on long walks but the weather is now making that impossible.>tfw it's already an icy tundra outside and it's only going to get worse and all you want to do is eat comfort food/cozy carbs in ur pjs
I'm trying to not go too crazy too soon, so my goal is around 1000 calories a day.
Anyway, looks like a hash of pilates + yoga + bodyweight exercises. She probably also does some cardio on the side since she looks quite slim.

Have any of you guys ever used this BMI calculator?https://people.maths.ox.ac.uk/trefethen/bmi_calc.html
It's what I've been using. Makes me so depressed to be 5'3". A few pounds makes such a difference. Anyone here around the same height? I don't really believe in "healthy underweight" but right now, I'm just looking for a goal that isn't too skelly. I feel like 90 lbs might be reasonable?
Kiko Mizuhara's body is like my goal. Any guess on her weight? Supposedly she's 5'6" though I've heard she's probably closer to 5'4".
She looks tiny here, bmi 16 maybe.
Yeah, that obviously isn't healthy. It will be skelly depending on your build. I wouldn't go under 17.5 but I'm no one to give advice.
Been fluctuating between 94-98 for the last year. Guess I'm still struggling with anachan BS thinking 90 is reasonable. Thank you both for putting things in perspective. It's hard to find a place I feel comfortable. I hate exercising so I'm definitely skinnyfat and my thighs still bother me at 94 lbs. It's a constant struggle between not wanting to lose what very little tits and ass I have and also wanting to be stick thin. So tiring.
Sage for blogpost and no contribution.
You should probably just work out. No one looks good as a skinnyfat. You might feel differently about yourself when you're firmer and less doughy.
Kiko Mizuhara would look shittier too at the same weight if she was flabby
1000 cals is not enough, eating such a low amount slows your metabolism down as your body is trying to sustain energy, and you're going to plateau. You should eat AT LEAST 1200 calories, but preferably more. Calculate your TDEE (e.g. here: https://tdeecalculator.net
) and go from there (you should consume about a 500 cal daily deficit in order to lose weight). I have been eating about 1200 cals a day and had like a 6-week plateau where nothing was happening or I was even gaining weight slightly. I now plan to eat about 1500 cals a day and have a cheat day once a week to make the weight loss sustainable. Note that I'm exercising 6 times a week, it all depends on your activity.
File: 1550585265793.jpg (102.18 KB, 662x993, kiko.jpg)
Actually, I think Kiko is pretty skinnyfat. Which is why I used her as a reference. She doesn't really have any muscle tone on her whatsoever.
But yeah, I should work out. I just absolutely hate it. I never get that "accomplished" feeling others feel afterwards or that "adrenaline" rush during. I don't know if it is because I'm depressed or what. I only enjoy walking and that builds no muscle tone whatsoever (and isn't really exercise). No places to hike nearby.
Have no idea how often I should be exercising anyway or what kind I should be doing. Anyone with a regular exercise routine have any suggestions for a lazy girl?
Let me know when you find exercise that you can bear. I want to pretend that there's something wrong with my endorphin system but I know I'm just a lazy skinnyfat.
It's still less depressing than the pitiful look of an aged anachan.
File: 1550604393243.jpg (74.24 KB, 1080x1080, 54gc2bbtgpn01.jpg)
Even Dr. Now's diet for people over 600+ pounds is 1200 per day (low-carb, low-fat, high-protein.)
She doesn't look skinnyfat to me tbh. I'm sure she works out. As for workouts, I like doing the fitnessblender workouts on youtube. >>108667
tbh I was only basing that on the first pic you posted, where she looks pretty toned. in the second pic, she doesn't have a lot of (noticable) muscle tone, but the muscles she has is shaping her body like that.
tbh the only exercise that released endorphins (for me) was extremely hard training. you just might not be hitting that level (for your
body) that starts feeling like a rush and not just tiring. that said, some people just push through the pain and discomfort because the reward of having a body they like is better than doing nothing but still hating themselves.
since you want to look thin, cardio and maybe some light strength training would help. it'll shape up your muscles so your low fat goals would look less shitty. if your low muscle tone body doesn't satisfy you, no amount of fat level would look good. personally, I used to hate how my body looked, but I spent a month doing almost daily (~4x a week) exercise and my whole perspective changed after that. I'm not even at a lower fat level than before, it just looks better because my muscles look better.
The body gets used to the low amount of calories and your metabolism slows down, which results in a plateau. Sometimes eating more calories jump-starts the weight loss process again, as it speeds up the metabolism again.
But the binge-eating or underestimating the amount of calories are also plausible theories, of course. Maybe anon can share what she eats daily, otherwise it's hard to suggest anything.
I'm 5'6", and currently at 172 lbs. I gained a shit ton of weight last year after my mother passed away and I became depressed. I wasn't thin back then, but I definitely stopped caring and ate as much garbage as possible to hide the pain. Right now, I'm working on getting my life back on track.
Is it possible/healthy to get down to 115 or 120lbs by June or July? According to https://www.losertown.org/eats/cal.php
this website it might be possible, but I'm not sure how accurate it is and I don't want to set myself up for disappointment and failure. Currently, I'm eating less than 800-1000 calories a day. Usually it's less than that because I rarely feel hungry. I've also been walking/jogging and doing at home HIIT workouts. I'd really like to try lifting soon too.
File: 1551124178381.png (228.74 KB, 517x347, Earworm_character.png)
I don't exercise at all and I'd say my eating habits are fairly normal.
What I do:
>Drink lots of water, at least 1L daily (I don't drink water with ice.. I've heard this makes a difference)
>Start day off with a cup of green tea, sometimes coffee, also have a cup of green tea around lunchtime
>2 meals daily, (800-900 cals per) try to do high protein and fiber
>Limit processed foods as much as possible
What I don't do:
>No soda. Ever
>Candies, sugary foods, caloric drinks, processed foods daily (periodically as snacks)
>More than 2 meals a day
I'm an inch shorter than you anon but the same weight range and also have similar habits. I do a bit of jumping rope and yoga, though. And walk a lot as well.
Though last year I binge ate a lot of sugary stuff and my weight went up (120~ I think). I stopped eating candy (miss it so bad tho) and lost a little over 15 lbs since last october.
Btw jumping does great for my body but I've heard it fucks up the knees in the long run. Any other routine ideas? I love using my legs to walk, because you know, legs move you around and stuff.
hyperactive thyroid = low weight cheat mode>>109225
Ah yeah, I walk a lot too. My office is three blocks from my house so I do walk to work, lunch, meetings etc, but I don't consider it exercise. I do a lot of housework too which supposedly burns calories. Jumping rope sounds cool… do you just like, bust out a rope in a parking lot and get to it? Lol
And yeah candy is bad. Did you notice a difference in your skin at all when you cut it out?
Yeah, that's a healthy weight, if you're going off BMI. You probably still even look rather thin.
I'm the same height as you, also recovering ana. 98 lbs. probably isn't a good weight for you, but I don't know you. For me, I was definitely skeleton-like at that weight. I'm still even skeleton-like at my current weight of 110, if you ask my dad, my bf, his mom, my coworkers (I think I look fat). So, I get it. Are you able to look at yourself objectively? Are you still fitting into small clothes? Maybe it's fucked up, but are you still smaller than most people around you?

same anon but i took these screenshots from her YouTube video and her waist to hip ratio is a lot less dramatic, and based on her posing I think she stands high on her toes to slim her thighs. don’t be surprised if you reach a 23” waist and it doesn’t look dramatic like on Instagram
anon i was in the same mindset until i actually started working out. trust me, the pounds are going nowhere by themselves and if you starve yourself you'll never be able to actually work out.
to give you a better idea of my physique, height is 5'2" and i was always under 100lbs till 3-4 years ago because of poor eating habits and work schedules. then i dunno what happened, partly age, partly food i guess. my highest weight was 120lbs, and because i'm short with a small bone structure and pear shape i just looked so frumpy it was depressing. i started to watch calories, eat clean, dream of bread and milkshakes, all of that good stuff and literally all it did was make me feel irritable and bitchy all the time PLUS miserable from lack of tasty food. to top off i'm a vegetarian due to cultural reasons so basically, FML.
i had to wake up and realize that starvation is not an option for a healthy life. i do intense cardio as dance fitness 4 days a week now and eat clean at least 5 days a week (weekends are for wine and pizza). but after 3 months of being semi-good things are looking up! i'm consistently losing weight and right now at a nice 110lbs.
i plan to keep this lifestyle up, i'm also hoping i can get down to 100lbs again but i'm not sure if that'll allow me to keep up with my cardio schedule. dance fitness is so good for shapely legs, you're missing out if you don't do cardio! but even putting aside the exact weight number, i love this lifestyle because it allows me to both eat like crap as well as still feel comfortable in my skin.
please girl, take care of yourself! tumblr might make it sound like a fantastic boon to be able to lose 6kg in one month, but there are no breaks on that train.

This picture is all I could think of the last few days. I hate kpop, but their bodies (especially lisa's) are so perfect, I want to look like that so badly.
She has a BMI of 16, has anybody of you managed to become that slim? What do you eat?
I'm also don't know how to work out exactly: on the one hand I really like exercising, on the other hand I build muscle very quickly, so I'm worried that they'll show too much when I no longer have a layer of fat over them. All the really skinny girls around me look different from blackpink, they all have weird, bulky muscles - which I don't want. What kind of exercises should I do and which should I avoid?
Mine is 17 on the dot and I don't think I could ever get down to 16. Already I eat so little and it's probably why I feel like shit most of the time.
I eat one meal a day and drink a shitload of water. Probs around a gallon. Also lots of green tea. I don't drink alcohol, rarely eat processed or refined sugars, no soda or caloric drinks.
I lose on average one pound per month but it seems to have evened out at this point.
The reason their BMI is so low is because they have lower density bone mass. It's not healthy for Westerners to have such a low BMI. It'll make you feel like shit and will probably result in you losing your period and fucking up your hormones as a result.
How slim you appear when you lose weight depends on your genetics, the women you see with perfectly flat stomachs are predisposed to losing most of their fat there. Some people are more predisposed to losing fat in other areas or sometimes even muscle. You can't spot reduce so if you don't have the genetics you're kind of fucked. Not to mention all the work these celebrities get done, I wouldn't be surprised if they got fat removal surgery as well
Honestly you should just try to love and capitalize on your strong points instead of forcing yourself to fit an ideal that may not even be natural or right for your health
Does this mean that I can look as skinny as an asian girl, but at a higher BMI? That would be pretty nice lol
I'm not sure whether I'm a pear or an hourglass, but my waist is the slimmest part of my body, even now at a higher weight it looks pretty good, so I don't think this is that unrealistic for me.
I definitely don't look like that at a bmi of 19. I thought it's about naturally higher muscle mass? That's why Asians are more prone to obesity related diseases at a lower weight than whites or blacks, no?
And I think Lisa does look rather big-boned, she's on the taller side, has wide shoulders…
I guess I was thinking it was more of an IRL thing, but yeah, I am sure reddit is full of jealous fatties and other retards who get triggered
by anyone who isn't fitting their thicc Amazonian goddess agenda. I don't go to those places because they are toxic
in their own ways – I think it's best to keep weight loss personal.
You fat and whoever is obsessed with you is probably fat, football shaped with saggy tits just like you

plenty of asian women have that boney and gaunt structure, plenty of white women have that soft and petite structure, it has nothing to do with race, the whole "asians have a smaller bone structure" is a meme only ever sprouted by yellow fevers, not by actual research or observations
regardless of race, everyone is skin and bones, if you have no meat then your skin will cling to your bones, asians don't have some magical padding that makes them "soft" no matter how low of a weight they get, white women don't have weird ugly gaunt popping out bones usually >>116960
calm down, I understand your annoyance with fat culture but it does raise an eyebrow when you want to be underweight, it's not the big scary fattys conspiring against you, it's just concern, I'd say the same thing about people who's weight goals are slightly overweight, plus the BMI range is so wide and don't stress over it or deprive yourself in order to get that weight
Absolutely true. Looking at my own community, we look like every other race we live with. The same goes for that shit I’ve heard about ‘Asian women tend to have shorter/stumpier’ legs. We just look like people. There are asian girls who are curvy, flat, heavy-set, top heavy, pear shaped. Japan is
shorter than average and I couldn’t tell you why but they’re ‘petite’ in that they try really hard to not be fat, simple as. There was a scan of a Japanese model magazine on a thread here about weight loss and the after pics were just sad looking women of average frame who lost enough weight to look utterly shapeless, but they were made up and posed in underwear to look like kawaii sticks. Gross.
Please take that BMI with a very heavy grain of salt. Kpop agencies regularly lie about the height and weight of their talents to make them taller and leaner. I'm gussing her BMI is probably closer to 17.5
Looking at Lisa's ribcage area, she seems to have a very narrow bone structure, so the low weight looks good on her. But if you don't have that same frame you're going to look better with a little more weight. 18, 19 or so depending on your frame is going to be a better goal than 16
>>128812>People always make unprompted comments on how thin I am but I feel like I look huge.
Sounds like textbook body dysmorphia. Do you find you look fatter in the mirror than in photos?
Don't lose weight, just get fitter.
Maybe it’s the style you wear ?
I’m your height but 95, I wear “bigger” clothes but I’d see this weight is a little too low.
I’m sure you are fine/Look fine . Maybe 5 pound loss if you feel like your diet is very unhealthy
I recently moved to a different country and stress-ate to the point of gaining 15 pounds in 6 months (going from 115 to 130 at 5'7.5"). I was shocked - I'd never weighed more than about 118 pounds in my life, and usually sat at around 110 in college, with a low weight of around 105 during periods of depression. At 24, I think my metabolism is starting to hit the wall as well, which isn't helping. I also drink a lot more than I used to. That being said, I used to eat basically whatever I wanted, though pretty sporadically because my depression and lifestyle often kept me from eating regular meals.
Over the course of 2 months, after realizing what'd happened (I was so stressed and busy that I didn't even notice the weight gain for months and months) I got back down to 118. However, my body looks different than it used to. My upper body is pretty thin, but my legs look MASSIVE. I'm so distressed. They've never looked like this before, not even at my previous high weight of 118.
I want to keep losing until my legs stop looking so gigantic compared to the rest of my body. I looked really good at 110, and it wasn't too difficult to maintain. I have a stationary bike in my room that I use for about an hour a day when I'm not too busy/depressed. Is it better to use the bike at a lower or higher resistance in this case?
your metabolism definitely isn't "hitting a wall" - metabolism slows only by about a percent every decade. your metabolism is fine, eating more calories than you burn is what causes weight gain.
watch your intake and choose healthier foods to make you feel full. exercise is important but don't try to use it to compensate for a poor diet. get your diet right and add in some regular exercise and you'll see the results you want
This is what I try to tell people online but I always get REEE GAIN WEIGHT YOU'RE DYING in response.
Maybe it's because I have no boobs so that subtracts some potential weight. How much do boobs weigh anyway lol? My whole female side of the family is like this - we weigh less than we look. My doc says I'm fine and I look good so

You're being told you're too thin because you are too thin lmao, so mental. Quit being terrified of gaining, if you gain weight through exercise and good diet you won't look chubby at all and you'll probably gain attractive body definition.

Say this girl is 5'4, how much do you think she weighs?
Can confirm this works. Especially the max 2 meals a day. Intermittent Fasting is magic.
t. 5'6 100 lbs
nta but lmao literally how is intermittent fasting an anachan thing
even normies are doing this now and in the original post the anon says they're eating like 1600-1800 cals a day and not exercising sooo…that's not ana lmao thats literally a healthy intake
Ok anachan. >>140029
Why is this up? The replies here are concerning.
We're talking about being just underweight on bmi. Not severely.
There's a difference between sick waif and being on the slimmer side of normal.
And tbh there's plenty of people who want to be "thicc" which borders on overweight, and is frankly uglier.
fatty fat cope
how do those 150 lbs feel? i'm sure bmi justifies them though, don't worry
I was talking about being just overweight on bmi. Not severely.
There's a difference between being a hamplanet and being on the chunkier side of normal.
Delusional anachans still in denial that fatties use the same copes that they do…sad.
