Is it possible to get to low bmis without being Ana and starving yourself and keeping you skin and face looking healthy?any tips? This is a thread for people who want to discuss getting to low weights in healthy ways. 5'5 at 120 but I'd like to be 100lbs. I use to be 95 lbs in my teens but it's easier to not look completely sick and haggard at low eights when you're young. I've flirted with the idea of losing weight but I don't wanna end up looking like a crack head.

fucking lift/thread

seriously. lifting is super easy, fat slides off and the rate that women gain muscle is so slow that you have to take steroids to get 'big'.

No. 73192

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.

No. 73198

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)

No. 73202

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.

Thanks to all three of you for the info, this is all great!!! I can't wait to start.

There is no guarantee, because it depends on your bone structure. I've lost weight, and while I'm still chubby (5'2, 118), my face looks so gaunt and old compared to when I was heavier, and I don't like it. I like being thinner, but my face looks mature now.
You might be able to get down to a low weight and look fine, but you also might look like a skeleton, theres no way to guarantee how you'll look once the weight is off. You should just find a size that you think you look best at, instead of trying to achieve a number.

No. 73769

I'm 5'8.5'' and 122lbs and I do it by making sure I don't really eat carbs until I'm like desperate for carbs later in the day. Sometimes I kinda just eat whatever for a couple days or longer and my weight creeps up to like 126-127 but then I just cut carbs / meal size or do a little IF and I get back down.

My goal is like 110. I'll update how it goes I guess!

No. 74217

I'm at 300 pounds. At this point it would be hard to lose the weight without surgery, but I'm not taking the risk.

I have an impossible weight goal (125 lbs), but I know that if I work hard enough, I will be able to lose the weight in about 5 years.

No. 74223

I'm 5'2 and 96 lbs. I maintain by doing about an hour on my indoor bike trainer 6 days a week. I usually have it on the highest gear settings. I love it because I feel like I eat more than the average person my size cause I can burn up to 800 calories.

It took me a while to be able to do top gears. I originally was a treadmill junkie that did high interval running and some snowboarding, so my legs were kinda already strong. Biking is working way more of my muscles than running ever did and has made my stomach flatter

The only downside is all the muscles I have are in my thighs and calves and I'm jealous of girls who have dainty looking legs. I have literally no upper body. My bf nags on me cause he's a personal trainer and my interest in fitness is purely shallow(I just like being skinny)

As far as diet, I really don't do much besides I don't drink any liquids with calories and usually don't have my first meal until the afternoon. I also never eat out because fuck that.

If I could give advice, don't fall for trends and become overly obsessed with weighing and counting calories. Once you find what works with you, just make it a routine that makes you and your body happy. If you don't work out one day or as long as usually do, don't eat more than you need.

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.

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…

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.

other tips:

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.

No. 75896

Find new foods. I replaced sweets with turkish yoghurt with jam. It's 700kcal for 600g of this, which is a lot but it also functions as a meal. I started replacing fast food/sweets with proper meals that address the same cravings. I do gym and cardio a few times a week, but mostly I found a sustainable diet through switching things up. Occasionally I eat like shit and then even it out over the next days. Learn to say no to sweets.

No. 75939

Anon, it's not that hard to find the "right diet" if the target is just weight loss. If you can't keep a diet going for even a single day, then the issue seems to be that you just don't have enough motivation.

A good place to start is youtube. You just have to find a channel where you enjoy the workouts. For me it's blogilates for example. I used to workout with youtube almost everyday before I became so lazy. Shame on me. However yt is a huge source for free workouts. A lot of channels also have playlists and series of routines which is quite helpful when you don't know which exercises to combine.

Find out what you're intolerant to is my advice. I got a panel done and it turned out I was allergic to chicken and soy. I've never eaten a lot, but I did eat soy, and chicken - thinking they were the leaner options, but it pushed up my weight because my body was trying to compensate for the food it couldn't handle. Once you know you're not eating things that are inflammatory - you're more likely to lose weight, and keep your health under control, too.

No. 76016

I don't mean to be provocative but what's the point in aspiring to a particular low weight like that if you don't have an anachan mindset? Doesn't it make more sense to find someone with the type of body you want and whatever weight that ends up being is secondary? Especially since if you feel skinnyfat, lifting would help, but lifting could also wind you up at your original weight despite less visible fat.

I used to be a nice, skinny fat underweight. My measurements were 33" bust, 22" waist and 32" hips.

I started taking high doses of antipsychotics, antidepressants, and benzos for a number of years following a psychotic breakdown that landed me in a mental facility.

However, I'm off most of the meds and I want my old body back. MY doctor told hat once I'm off the antipsychotics, I should be able to get down close to my old weight, but I"m wondering if I"m too far gone and the skin stretch will basically mean that I'll never get my natural 22" waistline back without painful surgery that I can't afford.

In addition, I gained most of the weight in my tits. I had DD's before that were dispropotionately large but now I have disgusting inflationart tits and its deformed, I can already feel them starting to hang down as I lose weight. I have no idea what to do. My insurance will not cover a breast reduction surgery or any form of weight loss surgery.

So, I've been weighing myself every day for about 2 weeks now because I noticed the scale suddenly jumped up about 10 lbs. Idk what caused this jump since my measurements are still exactly the same, but I've been really bloated and constipated lately. I bought some colon cleanse pills off Amazon because I read somewhere you can have pounds of literal shit built up in you and that can be causing the weight gain.

TLDR I've been stressing hardcore about the scale even though my measurements are still the same (34-28-35) and feel like my old ED habits are creeping back in. Do you think the colon theory is plausible though?

No. 91759

If you have a small frame and want to look thinner without looking like a crackhead, exercise and build muscle. It's a really slippery slope to want to be underweight and "aesthetic" thin. It's hard to maintain and it can become an obsession. The primary goal before any kind of weight loss should be unconditional acceptance of your body, and small attainable baby steps towards getting where you want to be. There's also no guarantee that you'll look model-esque when youre thin. I was really thin at one point because of stress and I just looked like the same skinnyfat person I was when I weighed more, just physically smaller.

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.

No. 97258

It's normal to bloat at different parts of your cycle due to how water is processed in your body. I always bloat soon before my period and go back down after my period is over.

No. 97276

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 know I am quite thin and I don't have a regular period but I still wish I was thinner. My thighs have quite a lot of fat in them and my stomach is not as flat as I would like it to be.
Am I going into the anachan territory, trying to lose weight? This is def not healthy at all, but for myself I don't think there's a problem at all since I wanted to be thinner for all my life. But I guess that's the point in anorexia, you don't see that you have a problem.

How are you trying to lose the weight? Are you starving yourself? Listen to your body. Instead of restricting, you should focus on building muscle to effectively change the parts of your body you're not satisfied with.

No. 97281

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.

No. 97282

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.

No. 97352

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.

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.

No. 99816

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.

Forgot to say, it gets a bad rap sometimes, but the /r/fitness subreddit has been very useful to me since trying to drop the weight. I highly suggest checking it out as they have some workout routines stickied on there. Some are aimed a big burly viking men, but they have some available for women to use.

No. 99818

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.

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.

I'm gonna post this here and maybe some anons have insight on this dilemma..

I had very disordered eating 2 years ago which caused my weight to fluctuate drastically. I started at 5'7 125lbs and looked healthy with no bones showing. After several fluctuations my chest bones show even now at almost 140lbs. I'd
love to go back down to 120 slowly, eating 1500-1600 calories but I'm kinda bummed that my chest might look spoopy.

Do you think over time it will redistribute? I dunno if this is temporary because of rapid weight gain or a permanent body change.

No. 108617

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.

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?

No. 108619


This is good and healthy advice, but I really doubt at 1000 calories anon has been plateauing. It just sounds like some starvation myth BS. More than likely they've been eating 1000 calories, but binge-eating at certain points (because 1000 calories is too low and is inevitably going to lead to a binge) which would allow them to gain some weight back and stay around the same weight.

No. 108677

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.

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.

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.

I managed to get that slim. I was an ana-chan. 0/10 do not recommend, try being a BMI 18, it's way better for you. To get a lean body, you should lift small weight, but with more rep. Eat a lot of protein, tone down the carb, drink A LOT, and eat in a small caloric surplus. It should do the trick.

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.

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

nta, but more or less: asian girls have smaller bone structures on average, but they tend to look quite soft and petite, rather than boney or gaunt like very slim white women. Your frame might be a bit larger but a BMI of about 18/19 would still make you look slim.

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
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.

I'm only 5kg underweight but my arms are really thin and not in a good way, the shape has become weird like your upper arm is supposed to be bigger than your forearm but that's not the case with me. So I guess being thing doesn't look good on everyone.

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

No. 117578

shorter people on average have small frames, asians on average are shorter. that's why the "small bone structure" thing.

In my early 40s I was in the same goal BMI range as OP and I got there via very slow dieting and exercise after I was labeled as having high cholesterol.

My friend also got down to 5 10 and 130 and he was 60 at the time, we went on the same diet. I took orlistat to control my oil intake as well and I couldn’t eat normal foods. Had to eat a can of tuna with no flavoring, cottage cheese and other stereotyped diet foods.

Hello anons, I was wondering if anyone knows other sources/places on the internet where this subject can be discussed more without going into Ana territory. I also want to be very thin but not very bony and I know I can do it, been there before but this time the last 6 pounds are super pesky (I am 5’2 /159 cm , 103 lbs/46 kg aiming for 97 lbs/44 kg) , been 92 lbs/42 kg some long ago and even then I wasn’t looking ana chan because of small frame so I know it’s feasible.

No. 128764

i’m 5”5, 130 pounds. i know it’s not a lot for my height, but i look very chubby and my mom keeps commenting on that every time i come back from college during the holidays and it’s been making me a lot more insecure. not to mention i’m studying abroad in an east asian country where you’re considered a fat pig if you weight more than 115 lbs no matter your height. i feel like almost every girl goes through an ana phase here at some point.

anyway, the problem with my eating habits is that i never get fucking full. i can easily eat 2 burgers with a serving a fries or a large pizza by myself and wash it all down with like a liter of diet coke.

if i try to limit myself and eat smaller portions i get so hungry that at the end of the day all i can think about is food. and of course i end up binging.

i don’t know why, but for some reason it’s much easier for me to just fast for the entire day, eat all of my calories for the day in one sitting and then [repeat cycle]. that’s the only way i can maintain my weight, but i know it’s not healthy. i wonder if there’s anyone here with similar experiences who was able to normalise their eating patterns?

No. 128768

Intermitent fasting (eating everything at once or in a short time window) is the best solution for ppl with binge eating problems. This plus calorie counting is the only thing that worked for me. I'd rather feel full and keep like that for long hours after with just a short time of mild hunger than eat small and often but never feel full. It is healthy for your average person unless you have some kind of stomach illness

Like some have said here, lift. I lift and do cardio + eat mostly meat and I'm 100 lbs at 5'5. Not starving. BMI ranges aren't appropriate for everyone. If I were at the "healthy weight" BMI suggests, I'd look disgustingly chubby.

No. 130617

You just described IF, or OMAD (one meal a day). It's very healthy and it makes sense. It's how people used to eat. I've been doing OMAD for over 7 years and I'm lean and healthy. I also prefer to eat one big meal over several small meals a day. If I eat small meals I feel like I'm not eating anything, it's pathetic, and I keep thinking about my next small pathetic meal.

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?

No. 139925

this might be water retention. excercise isn't as important as being in a caloric deficit

No. 139935

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

No. 139952

I'm 5'5 and only look thin at like 105 lbs. It's because i store all my fat on my thighs so it takes a very low weight to get rid of it and look slim.

I look perfect at 95-100 lbs. But by then BMI is screaming and you can't tell anyone your weight without them telling you you're anorexic.

I'm not, I just love being thin. Sorry. Not gonna look fat because BMI says I should be 125.

No. 139964

I'm 160/3 cm and want to be 47kg. I know it's a low end BMI (but still not in skelly yerritories) and I would never reallisticly be able to get there but damn, I know I looked good at that weight when I was 16.

No. 139974

A lot depends on a body type. BMI is just a general guideline but doesn't have to be the ultimate truth whether you're healthy or not. I've never even came close to my "normal" weight according to BMI but I've always been healthy and doctors never said I have to gain weight. So often it's pointless to use is as the reference, if you feel good at your current weight it means it's good for you.

No. 139975

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

Just imagine if we had a HAES thread where all the obesechans of the website got together to collaborate on ways to be "healthily" overweight. They'd be laughed at and rightfully so. But we coddle sick waifs, always have and always will since society still prefers sick women slowly killing themselves as long as they're not fat.

No. 140109

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.
