Painting Muscles

 So, we're moving.
We bought a house in the neighboring town
and we need to be in by January 1st.
This means I've been doing a ton of painting.
It's exhausting,
but I think my shoulders&arms are gonna look great!

DirtyDancing Thin

Speaking of Jennifer Grey...
Dirty Dancing is/was always a form of thinspo for me.
Not only was Baby ittybitty, but Penny was tiny, too!
Actress, Cynthia Rhodes had bony arms&shoulders
that I want&wanted so badly!
Time to break that movie out and watch it again.

Vintage Thin

The boy and I watched White Christmas the other day
and I was immediately brought back to my youth
watching it every year with my mother
who still watches it to this day.
I was shocked to notice how tiny Vera-Ellen was in it
and proceeded to tell the boyfriend that
it's no wonder I have such wild body image
when I grew up watching actresses like her
I had to read Vera's bio, of course:
"Vera's career died down in the late 1950s once filmed musicals lost their fashion. It was later discovered that, due to the dancer's compulsive dieting obsession, she had silently battled anorexia throughout much of the 50s before anyone was even aware or doctors had even coined the term or devised treatments." sad to suffer in silence,
but I can't help but wish I had the willpower
because her body looked absolutely flawless.

Angel Thin

The 2014 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show aired this week
(obvs, you probably all knew that)
and, of course, I watched&loved it.
I'll admit that I didn't like it as much as years' past
but it was still thinspirational&beautiful.
Those models goodness... have the tiniest&longest legs.
I can't even aspire to look like them
cause my body just isn't made that way.
My favorite Angel is Candice and I loved her fairy look.
And my favorite performer was Taylor Swift
who looked like she should have been one of the Angels herself.
A good watch to make me behave - but not the best show ever.
I think I enjoyed all the workout posts they did even more...
a lot of the Angels posted what they did to prepare
and VS put it on their blog so everyone can "Train Like an Angel."
Maybe I'll try some of the workouts.

Anna Thin

I wish I could describe myself as "very small."
I know she's referring to her height, too,
but in general - she has a tiny body.
I was reading a blog with thinspo movie suggestions
and a lot of people commented that Pitch Perfect is
...I never really noticed, but I can totally see it.
I find it kind of ironic that their are so many movements toward
- accepting your body as it is -
- celebrating your average body -
- embracing your curves -
yet celebrities just get smaller&smaller
and the stories we try to relate to in movies
are acted out by frail actresses that we shouldn't aspire to be.
I'll be watching Pitch Perfect 2 for sure
...and probably fasting that day.

I need mono.
One of my college girlfriends has been sick
...for like a month...
and finally found out that it's mono.
I felt bad
but mostly I felt jealous
of all the weight she'll lose.

Oh, Miley.

An article about Miley Cyrus posting a picture
of herself in her undies popped up the other day,
so I went to look for some thispiration.
Oh yeah, I got it.
She is so tiny&fit.

Chubby Tyra

Scrolling the internet before starting my workday
I ran across this article about celebrity siblings.
The first celebrity pictured is Tyra Banks
...looking terrible...
I love me some America's Next Top Model
but Tyra definitely does not look like a model.
My friend and I always watch it
and comment on how horrible Tyra's outfits are
but this pictures takes the cake.
(or did she?)
Sorry, Tyra... this is certainly not your best look.

Starved Out

I finally started watching Orange is the New Black.
I know, I know ...I'm way behind the times.
But I caught up on all my other shows
and I decided I should finally watch it.
I'm only on S1E2
but I've found thispiration in a show about prison.
When Piper Chapman is "frozen out" by the kitchen
it inspires me not to eat either.
If she can do it - I can do it.
My favorite part is when her fiancé, Jason Biggs,
says she's all "cheekbony."
Taylor Schilling is already a skinny actress anyway.

Skinny Makeouts

I don't even know who these people are...
but I was scrolling through EOnline
and ran across this article
and fell in love with how tiny that girl is.
Of course the tan&skinny girl
has a super hot guy to make out with.

Holiday Exercise

I kicked off the Thanksgiving holiday with lots of exercise.
After a few too many drinks at the bar...
the boyfriend got a ride with his friends
and left me 3.5miles from home
so I walked&ran the whole way alone at 2am.
Though I was fuming from the neglect
I wasn't mad about the exercise
and I felt nice&thin in the morning.
I spent the rest of the weekend doing a lot of walking
while visiting family&friends
so I think I actually did really well!
...If I had a scale, I'd weigh myself.
Maybe after the new year.

Maid Legs

I'm the maid-of-honor in my best friend's wedding next year.
This is her cousin - the bridesmaid who will stand next to me.
Fuck me.
She's such a stick.
I'm going to look like a blob.
I must behave myself.
I will say, though, that my dress size is smaller than hers.
I measured an inch smaller in the waist
(probably because she's a straight-edged stick)
but my legs are obviously fat compared to hers
and these dresses are short, so the difference will show.
Time for some intense leg slimming&toning.

Birthday Party Thin

I can't imagine having such a beautiful group of friends.
Though, I'd probably be incredibly insecure. many thin&gorgeous people living amazing lives...
I love how tiny Sarah Hyland looks in this photo.

Mindy Weight

2004 Mindy vs. 2014 Mindy
So, I'm a huge fan of the Office and a big fan of the Mindy Project
(which is on tonight at 8:30c)
and I decided this week to start the Office at season 1 again
(for probably the 5th time)
and Mindy Kaling's look in the 1st season totally shocked me.
First of all, she was much darker
- not that that matters, but her skin is noticeably lighter now -
and thinner.
I find the weight-part very interesting because
(if you've ever watched the Mindy Project)
you know that she jokes about her weight&overeating&lackofexercise
and is portrayed as a very curvy, almost unhealthy doctor.
Now, I don't think she's actually a big girl at all.
(I mean, she's not thin by any means)
But I kind of feel like she's put on weight or trying to look bigger
just for the sake of the show&jokes.

Monday Look

I feel pretty today.
This is a recycled outfit from last Friday
...I wore it to a comedy show with the boyfriend.
I felt like I needed to show it off again.
My legs are thicker than I'd like
and the sweater is big&baggy
but I like the look all the same.

Biggest Picture

One of my best college girlfriends
has been using spinning&swimming and Weight Watchers
to lose the weight she gained after moving home from college.
She looks amazing!
And at lunch on Thursday afternoon
we were discussing how easy it is to gain without noticing.
We were talking about when we'd been at our "biggest"
and I can picture so clearly the exact day I think
I was the biggest I've ever been.
I had a day off from work and I did some shopping.
I wore a loose dress that I'd always worn with a belt,
but I let it fall sloppily around my chubby body.
I threw on accessories
- scarves&bracelets&layers -
to distract from how big my body looked.
My face was bloated&round
...even big sunglasses couldn't cover my sweaty cheeks.
I took pictures with some of the displays I liked.
(obviously not completely aware of how disgusting I looked)
Now I can look back on them
and remind myself never to look like that again.

Normal Barbie

The "Normal Barbie" is making her rounds on the ole web.
I'm not against her.
I do think Barbie gives an unrealistic representation
of the female body to our youth.
I'm very glad that she's not fat, though.
She's just thicker - like most "normal" waistlines.
I think the acne&stretchmark stickers are a little much
but I guess some girls would certainly relate...

Another Weightloss Story

A friend from college recently lost a significant amount of weight.
She was in a wedding and the pictures popped up on my newsfeed
and I thought, "that's doesn't even look like her!"
She looks great, though.
Super tiny.
She was always on the thicker&softer side.
Good for her.
I want someone to spot me on their newsfeed
and recognize how skinny I look.

Active Weightloss

A girl I went to high school with
recently lost a significant amount of weight.
I know she's been running marathons
so that definitely helps
but I can't help but wonder what else she's doing.
I can't imagine how she's able to hold herself up
for all those miles of running
when she's skin&bones
but if I could look like her, I'd figure it out.
She just got back from a tropical vacation
and all of her pictures are major thinspo for me.

VS Models

I follow Glamour Magazine on Facebook
and they're always posting thinspirational things.
Today they posted about the first Victoria's Secret Fashion Shows
(an obvious favorite on the TV lineup)
and I couldn't help noticing how "normal" the models look.
No, they're not chubby&soft
but they're not bony&thin like the models are now.
I like both versions
...mostly because I like VS always.

Mixify Movement

Obviously I agree with the Mixify cause
- balance what you eat&drink&do -
but I think its kind of a wild way of putting it.
The youth of America who slam fastfood every day
will watch the commercials and think:
as long as I go for a walk, I can eat another donut!
I guess it has the right intentions
and hopefully healthy parents will teach their kids properly
but I can see it easily going in the wrong direction.

Oh, Nicole.

Speaking of celebrity instagrams (see previous post)
I watched VH1's Big Morning Buzz Live this morning
and Nick Lachey interviewed Nicole Richie
(who I lovelovelove & *obvs* find very thinspirational)
and they played a game on identifying her instagram photos.
Of course - after the segment - I had to go follow her
(why I hadn't done this before is beyond me ???)
and her posts do not disappoint.
Her itty-bitty body looks adorable in all her clothes
and I love her style - even her wild hair colors.
Just found my new favorite celebrity instagram
and decided that I really need to catch up on her show.
Nicole looking TINY next to b.spears
thin legs = perfection
her bony back is flawless

Friday, November 14, 2014


Celebrity instagrams are definitely inspirational...
its nice to see someone posting their workout
instead of admiring their photoshoped magazine covers.
I don't follow many celebs on instagram,
but Ashley Bensen & Ellie Goulding are my favorite
they both post pictures with their adorable bodies
and Ellie is super into posting workout photos
of her amazingly fit physique.

Bubye #Selfie

I thought the show was super stupid
(obvs I was right, cause it's already canceled)
but my bestfriend made me watch it
and one redeeming factor was how tiny  is.
Her outfits were wild
but her long, skinny legs were thinspirational.
Good thing there are a million other shows on TV
with thin actresses to admire.

Triggers are wild.
Last night I had martinis with my coworker
and she was telling me about how skinny her daughter is.
I asked if this was something was concerned about
and she told me about her daughter's high school ED.
She's starting her senior year in college
and is dating a man her sisters don't approve of
and has apparently lost a significant amount of weight.
I've been following proana instagram profiles
and I was recently fitted for 2 bridesmaid dresses
but hearing about my coworkers daughter
and her probable rekindling with her ED
motivated me to get my shit together again.
Starting now: I will be thin.

i often think this about our lack of sex
i'd rather have all my clothes hang off my bones
i've gotten on the scale once - it sucked

Monday, July 21, 2014


I'm definitely not into being a 1950's housewife or baking creepy treats
but this woman is beautiful&thin&talented.
Christine McConnell has a teeny-tiny waist and bony-little arms.
And her photography&baking are both completely amazing.

Muscle Tanks

The boyfriend LOVES tanktops.
...muscle tanks with silly sayings&images...
I definitely think we should have these.
Only I wish the "Beauty" was a different color than Pink.

WGP Thin

One of my girlfriends gave me the White Girl Problems book to read.
A book by: Babe Walker
It's pretty hilarious.
She often talks about weight&body image and cracks me up.
Favorite Quotes thus far:
"I'd rather have someone tell me I looked sick, miserable, starving, or dead
than have someone tell me I looked healthy."
-On her maid saying she looked healthy
"Pussycat, you can be an educated woman and starve yourself
and still be just as interesting and beautiful as all those white trash celebrities."
-Tai Tai (her grandma)

Her website is pretty hysterical, too.
And I follow her on twitter.
I wish I had the time&money to live like Babe Walker...
worrying about fashion&image all day and living the high life.
Maybe someday.

Sabrina Thinspo

Zelda lookin' thin in her junpsuite
I've been watching Sabrina the Teenage Witch on Hulu+
and channeling my inner late 90's early 00's fashion sense.
Her aunt Zelda, played by Beth Broderick, is the shows thinspiration, though.
She's supposed to be the nerdy aunt
but she's always so sexy - example: the above photo.
Sabrina, on the other hand, played by Melissa Joan Hart,
definitely goes through her awkward development throughout the show.
I mean, in my early 20's, I'm still fluctuating.
No matter her weight, I love her, though.
weight isn't addressed very often

Marathon Belly

It's my last week before my half marathon
so I figured I'd display a college fling's current body.
His belly is the floppy&bare one.
And this photo was taken after he ran a marathon.
I guess that's proof that running doesn't make one skinny
though it has definitely helped my quite a bit.
