The Sickest Progress

Ask me anything   Name: Kola, Age: 21, Purpose: to keep a kind of tumblr scrap book of pics i collect so you guys can check it out.

Why the Skinny Obsession?

I think about how being obsessed with being skinny is really superficial all the time. I wonder how it is that I can wake up everyday regretting that I am not magically skinny today, and at the same time feel shame that this image-based insecurity can dominate my confidence so.

When you are a great person, helpful, kind, all those things, people don’t bother with whether you are skinny or not. People will love you just the same. And being fat doesn’t make your good deeds any less valuable; being fat is irrelevant to the good you can do for society and the people you care for. SO I should be obsessed with being a great person. In a way the skinny obsession is a transference of that.

The skinny obsession for me is precisely about feeling guilt over being a privileged consumer. I am fat because I can afford to be. Poor people can be fat too, I’m not saying they can’t, but I still associate being fat with being spoilt somehow- its a bad impression thats stuck. Not just that, but I am fat because I don’t deal with my emotions properly. Being fat is like wearing a big sign saying ‘I am depressed’. When I see fat people thats what I think- those people just aren’t coping. Either that or they don’t know any better, which I don’t like people thinking about me either. But I don’t want to wear my sadness on my sleeve like that every day. I want to get on with my day and not feel like everyone can see my coping method. Especially since its a bad one. I guess the skinny obsession is about wanting to protect myself from showing weakness, wanting to function and contribute to society without the world immediately being able to tell what my weakness is. Being fat makes me hide away from society, which makes the eating worse. Its a vicious cycle, and to move past it I need to summon enough courage just to make it through the first stages.

I didn't start my new life today, diet-wise. In fact I ate loads of junk. BUT that was because there was loads of junk left over from yesterday and also not much healthy food. And I woke up feeling all fat from eating late the night before. Whereas today, even though I ate junk, I stopped eating at 3pm so tomorrow I will wake up with an empty belly, which will make me want to stay not feeling fat, and therefore tomorrow is going to be- finally- the start of my new life.
I bought a new bikini to prove this.
hehehehe
skinnyechelon- seems you did well today, having more veg in your life ? You will lose weight eating an apple a day and some salad just as much as if you only ate the apple. In fact, if you have a little more calories a day your body is less likely to go into 'starvation mode'. In starvation mode it eats up muscle tissue and tries to preserve the fat. Have you got any treats planned for when you reach your goal? like new clothes or something? :)
And anyone else?

Another colour page! Purple… P is for purple. And, yes, procrastination. It’s only for the weekend, promise. Colour pages will not become my habit…. My favourite colour is blue. There might be a blue colour page one day, that’s all. 

Again, pictures are not mine!

'P' is for procrastination.

Hiyaaa today my diary says it’s freaky friday. So the rule is something freaky has to be done. And by freaky, I mean nothing particularly freaky at all, just a little creative/fun. I, for one, am topping up my blue hair. But I’m not going out because I have work to do, so I will probably have it in a bun all day like some wannabe sumo-wrestler. I will paint my nails something awesome too, while I procrastinate. 

ps. I tend to post pictures that I’ve collected over a long time from a million different places, so I don’t know where I’ve got them from. Anyone sees a picture of theirs that they don’t want up, please say so I can take it down immediately.

For those of you who want to be a lean mean fighting machine and feel gross for being far away from your goal weight, just remember that the in-between is HOTT too. Okay, these women have stunning proportions, quite superhuman really, but you get the point that a little plumpness, a little chub, can also be attractive. So don’t beat up on yourself because you’ve got a way to go- feel confident in the now babe! Make the best of where you’re at now, even if you’re trying to change it. Makes life much more pleasant, is my theory anyway. 

I saw this really cool looking girl out the other night, perfect skin, dyed red shiny hair, soft pretty face, this cool pink satin top on, boobies quite on display ;) and she was overweight. She was rockin the extra junk, I tell ya.  Then I saw this teeny weeny waif of a girl, Indian with a very stylish (hair) up-do, and elegant face. Also rockin. Then I looked in the mirror when I got home and decided to do myself justice everyday and stop these hate trends I go through.

It’s a good thing my diary is CUTE today, because I need a mood lift. Yesterday I failed my first ”official” day as a sugar free person. Had a lot of sugar and food- it was an emotional day and I failed the ‘no emotional eating’ test… shame, it started so well. But my no.1 rule before everything else is NEVER feel guilty about the slip ups. Not because you should never feel guilty about mistakes in life, but because a) this type of mistake is not worth the guilt and b) it’s actually not constructive. Guilt makes me give up some times, because it makes me feel like crap. Or else it makes me punish myself by being too strict— which is not sustainable or healthy.  Just gotta move on swiftly and leave yesterday in yesterday! Got a massive food baby this morning hehehe so didn’t go to the gym, but I’ll do home exercise. Oh, and the topless tuesday thing? Ok, not actually going to happen unfortunately, but I didn’t wear a bra to take the dog out :O  i thought that was a good compromise. Anyone going to better that? :D
