When girls have a highest ever or starting weight which is lower than my ultimate goal weight.
I do have a bit of a thing for petite girls. They say good things come in small packages and I’d have to agree. Obviously, girls are healthier at lower weights than guys anyway (as they naturally carry a higher ratio of fat where us men carry more muscle) and are on average shorter so shouldn’t weigh as much, but it makes me feel pretty big and powerful to know that at my lightest I will always be so much bigger and stronger. I like feeling like I can give care and protection in a relationship, which probably has something to do with living in a pretty rough area and growing up on fantasy games full of chivalry. I’m not saying girls can’t, or shouldn’t, be capable of looking after themselves but I do like knowing that I can look after those I care about.
How are there so many blogs out there with people who have no idea what they are talking about?
This is an issue because peoples health is at risk. I’ve seen so many blogs where girls are hitting under 700 calories a day while working like horses, doing runs and aerobics. They all go on about how many calories they have taken in and how many they have burnt but they are all wrong. Non of them take their basal rates into account; what energy do they think their hearts, lungs, digestive systems etc. run on? Every ounce of living flesh constantly respires. If nothing else, we’re warm blooded, what fuel do they think we burn to heat our bodies? I guess they are the sort of people that wouldn’t know to put coolant in a car during the summer and anti-freeze in winter. I’ve seen blogs where people assume that liquids don’t have calories and they are surprised that they aren’t losing weight really fast when they drink loads of full-sugar soda and full-fat milk. I’m no genius, and I’m not all knowledgeable, but I just don’t understand how anyone can seriously go into trying to lose weight without having a proper think about it first.
Also, if you don’t lose weight healthily, what’s the point in losing weight? Just for the way you look? The way you look isn’t going to matter much when you start collapsing, develop a heart defect or countless other shit things that can happen due to malnutrition.
I guess I get a bit ragey when I see people making their own lives harder, or going through what I would feel was hell, just because they didn’t stop and think before they did something.
My personal thinspiration is my father. Obviously you won’t get a picture of him; that would destroy the anonymity of this blog. My dad had been working a horrible job doing delivery for a bakery. He was getting paid below minimum wage and it meant sleeping during the day as he started work at like 1am. This meant he didn’t get to see a great deal of us kids. So, he took the initiative to lose weight, thinking that he would get healthier so he wouldn’t be as tired after work and then would be able to spen more time with us. He was around 25stone (158kg) and over the course of a year lost about 12stone (76kgs). That’s a ridiculously fast weight loss, it definitely wasn’t healthy and as expected when he started to eat properly again he put weight back on. However, he only went up to around 15stone which isn’t far into the overweight range for his height. If my dad could lose and keep off 10stone in a year then i think it should be easy for me to lose 9stone in a longer time frame.
Thinspirational people that you will actually know include;
Chad Michael Murray
That’s the perfect man body for me really. Slim but very toned. Not over the top muscle, i’m no fan of Schwarzenegger, but definite power.
A bit on the extreme side for most, but sometimes i do need a good talking to to keep myself on track
