Hi Lily! I just wanted to write you a sort of appreciation letter to go along with this portrait (which I really hope you like). I am so thankful that you started this blog I cannot even explain how much you changed my life but I will try. I struggled with binging and starving on and off throughout my early teens. I hated my body. I was very thin as a child and had never seen this as a problem until one day a boy in my sixth grade gym class said my legs looked like funny sticks. Those words “funny sticks” rung in my head over and over until I couldn’t hear anything else and I decided I was going to eat more. So I started to binge. A lot. I put on quite a lot weight and I was proud of myself. I had a round tummy and I had gone from a 121cm 20kg sixth grader to a 142cm 50kg eighth grader. “Wow look at that belly she’s got”. I didn’t want to overhear that and I wish I never had. Why were eighth grade girls so mean? The gym locker room was the worst place in the world without blatant criticism coming from around every corner. I looked at myself from the side and I noticed something. I had skinny legs and a big pot belly. How had I gained all that weight on my belly and never realized. I was also on tumblr quite frequently at this point in my life so pro anorexia posts were motivators to the max. I decided I just won’t eat dinner tonight. And that’s when the starving began. So from then until about year 10 of high school I lost more and more weight until I was down to 42kg the end of 2012. Gym class seemed to be the prime place where my self-esteem was crushed and steeping on the scale for the fitness test and seeing the shocked look on my teachers face at the weight of a 157cm teen did not help my struggle to like my body. “Do you ever eat anything” she laughed to cover her discomfort. To make matters worse I had to go to a doctor very soon. If my gym teacher noticed my problem, surely a physician would. I had been struggling with irregularity of my period for a while so my mom suggested I see a doctor and maybe start birth control. That is when I relapsed. I went home and I can tell you exactly what I ate that night. A carton of ice cream, macaroni and cheese, hot pockets, a bag of lunch meat and a big glass of chocolate milk. And then I puked. A lot. A body that hasn’t seen food more than an apple and a glass of water a couple times a week rejects food horribly. I found that out the hard way. So I went to the doctor and surprisingly my mom stood up for me and argued that I had always been slim and she had been a slim teen herself, it was genetic. Little did she know. But I got pills and they worked great. Kind of. Year 11 was rough needless to say. I was dealing with an ED. I started my binging starving cycle again and with the help of hormones I went from an undernourished twig to a 54kg girl with a double D chest. I was horrified. And then got back on tumblr. Fitblrs seemed all the rage. And I happened to stumbled upon yours the beginning of this year which I checked on frequently without having a tumblr account. I was afraid to make an account until recently for fear of getting sucked back into the pro ana sites but eventually I made one and steered clear of all of that. Your blog literally changed my whole life. Here are the things I have improved on since seeing your blog:

-          I have been gluten free (curing my migraines and occasional loss of feeling in my hands and feet. Yeah I was gluten intolerant and didn’t even know it) for five months

-          I am now 46 kg and in the midst of recovery

-          I am really body positive now and have learned to appreciate all the amazing things about myself

-          I have not binged for three months

-          I have not gone one day without eating since January

-          I can now eat normal sized meals without vomiting yay!

So I just wanted to give a huge thanks to you because I truly believe in my heart that after brought me to your blog and you saved my life.

Also this is the first time i have ever shared my story with anyone publicly so thank you for helping me take this big step as well :)

All of my love,

Maria xoxo

Do squats really work? I feel like they've only made my butt smaller

Well it depends, are you squatting properly? 

At the moment I’ve been doing squats (80kg), deadlifts (50kg), Lunges (35kg), Glute bridges (35kg), Curtsey lunges (35kg), Split squats (20kg) twice a week for about 10 weeks now and I’ve seen definite improvement

Non so se ridere o vomitare o cavarmi gli occhi per ciò che vedo ogni giorno.
C’è F. che è davvero magra, è in sottopeso di circa 20kg. F. È una ragazza davvero egoista, crede di essere al centro del mondo. Ragazzi, non è poi così bella pure, però mi sta troppo sul cazzo che fa tipo ‘oddio, che grassona quella’ e ‘Madonna che vacca conciata così’, per poi ricercare attenzioni per se stessa dicendo che anche lei è così. E già da qui le tirerei 3 pugni in un occhio.
E poi c’è C, che posta foto col muso a culo di gallina scrivendoci sotto una frase della canzone che ci dedicammo anni fa. Il punto è che la frase è sgrammaticata e che C. è un’oca.
Poi c’è Noemi, che ora mi va di scriverlo per intero, che è una persona di doppia merda. Siamo sempre state legate dall’infanzia, poi Noemi dice che non gli rispondi ai messaggi, e poi inizia a non cagarti di più, poi la cerchi e ti risponde il giorno dopo che era col ragazzo. Che cazzo, allora non lamentarti.
Mi stanno tutte sul culo le persone.

I know its been a while since I posted here but due to various issues my workouts became limited and I’ve spent the last several months attempting to progress and don’t really feel its something worth talking about… that or I’m probably very embarrassed by my current physical state.BUT
I brought out the hellbilly today on the smashy/choppy trunk. I use it for sledgehammer & axe swings pretty regularly.

found my CM booklet and decided to do the “Hammer of the witches”

25 x 2 pushups

the skin of my hands sure are paying for it
with the amount my palms sweat and the repeated blows, Ive now got at least 10 blisters bubbling about. My skin better toughen the fuck up cause Im not investing in gloves

Hi so I'm only 16 and I don't know much about the cause you are fighting but my family is essentially a long line of butchers, they just do the cuts and whatnot but not the actual killing of the animal. So I like to think I can kinda understand... I've been with to the slaughter houses and I cry every time and so does my dad ... And I just wanted to ask if you view all people who eat meat as bad people? I'm not blaming or pointing fingers I'm merely curious?

Also as much as I want to be a vegan I can’t be because as soon as I stop eating meat or even eggs I loose weight rapidly. Is this how it is with most people? The only reason I’m not (vegan) I guess is because of that? I once lost 20kg in under a month, this was with me eating full vegetable meals 4 times a day?

No, I don’t think all people who eat meat (or use animals in any other way) are bad. Not at all. I did it myself for quite a few years. I think most people are either misinformed (and often wish to remain so, because it’s really easy to look the other way) or simply desensitized. Sadly, that’s the way most of us are raised. We’ve all been told the story about human supremacy. How everything on this planet revolves around us. How the rest of the animal kingdom exists for our gain. And people will blindly defend this idea, because it’s convenient and because no one likes being told that what you’ve been raised to believe is wrong. But I think it’s time to turn that story into a myth.

I do think badly of people who know what they’re contributing to but choose to keep doing so purely for selfish reasons. People who will tell you in your face they don’t give a fuck about animals and never will. I think you have to be a bad person to say a thing like that, in the same way someone who doesn’t give a fuck about humans would be considered a bad person.

As for your experience, it sounds like you didn’t eat enough food? Try eating calorie-dense foods. I have a “vegan resources” tag that includes lots of nutritional information. That might help you. It could also be that you made the change too quickly, and the body needs time to adjust to the new diet. I knew someone who made the transition overnight and felt sick for a month, but after that she was perfectly fine. Try to make a slower transition. There are people on this site who will give you better advice on this though (guys, reveal yourselves!) 

Anyways, the food aspect is just one part of veganism. If you want to know more, check this website. Also, feel free to ask me anything else you want to know.

Don’t be deceived by that smiley face, that flex was INCREDIBLY hard. So Wednesday is PT (personal training) day and my PT really puts me through my paces!! Today was no exception. We hit the weights today and right now parts of my body are hurting that I didn’t know could hurt. I also have NO idea how I’m going to manage to pull my sports bra off over my head to have a shower 😐 but hey, hard work leads to big results and today I worked HARD!

Greg trying to take Mycroft to the gym (dun dun duuun)

"Muscle toning is improtant, Myc," Greg grunted, pumping his arms away from his chest. He was lying on his back and bench pressing nearly 100kg.

Mycroft was leaning against the wall behind him, half-spotting for Greg, half-observing a dust mote floating in the dim sunlight filtering in from the grimey windows above them. He raised his eyebrows but didn’t say a word. Waiting patiently for his husband to finish, he silently counted Greg’s reps. He finally stopped at 3 sets of 30. The clank of the bar settling into the cradle signalled that Greg was finished.

"Now, I’m going to take a few kilos off and-" Greg started to pull a 20kg weight from one of the sides but Mycroft held up his hand. It was Greg’s turn to cock his eyebrows. He held his hands up and backed away from the bench, smirking at Mycroft’s confidence.

Then, to Greg’s surprise, Mycroft picked up another two 10kg weight and added one to each side. He then swiftly stretched out on the bench, braced his feet on the floor at the end, and gripped the bar. Greg moved behind to the spotter’s postion and waited for Mycroft to start.

Curling his long fingers around the bar, Mycroft hefted the 120kg out of the cradle, let it rest against his chest for only a moment before pressing upwards awayfrom him smoothly, quickly doing 30 reps. He reested only for another moment before swiftly doing 2 more sets. He carefully re-st the bar in the cradle and swung his legs sideways, sitting up. He hadn’t even broken a sweat.

Mycroft cast a smug glance at his awstruck husband. “Yes, Gregory,” he muttered as he passed, on his way to the leg press station, “toned muscles are quite important.” He sauntered away, leaving Greg speechless and dangerlously turned on.

(Not what you expected, huh? Yeah, same.)

How much does an automail leg actually weigh?

Fun fact: I filled up a few pages with a bunch of math just so I could figure out how much Ed’s automail might conceivably weigh.

I’d show you all the math, but I won’t get to in-depth for you.  I will tell you that I based it off a perfect cylinder with an outer shell and inner “bone”.  It’s not exact, of course, but it’s good enough for our purposes.

Adult Ed, at 5’8”, would had an automail leg that weighs about 20kg.  His normal human leg would only be about 12kg.

Again, I’ll spare you the math (unless you’re actually curious, just let me know), but I figured I’d give you the info anyways.

What the ACTUAL FUCK

I bought my airline ticket on the us website of Asiana Airline and they told me I was allowed to have 2 pieces with a maximum weight of 23kg/50lbs for Economy class per piece.
But apparently if you travel from Europe, you can only have ONE freaking piece of 20kg and for each kg that exceeds that limit it costs 30€ or something like 45$..
I mean COME ON, I am going to live in Korea for 2 freaking years, I need way more than just 20kgs and why does the US are allowed to have two pieces and Europe only one?!

I don’t even know how I am going to manage to only pack 20kg :/
And I leave tomorrow ugh
