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.

thin legs = perfection

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.
