Lost 40lbs slow and steady over a year. I used MyFitnessPal to track calorie intake and gradually reduced -100 every week from 2000 to 1400 a day. Did light excercise: a little running, swimming or yoga once a week. Started walking more instead of driving. The weight just started to drop without too much hard work. Finally really happy with my body, much more comfortable in myself and can do so much more physically. It’s a great feeling.
so i’ve seen some questionable shit in fanfic/fan art in regards to jack and bitty’s height difference and as someone who is Short™ it’s bothering me more than it should… so just to visualize their height difference w/a pop culture example (that was relevant like 5 years ago yikes): Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson
Josh is 5ft7 so roughly bitty’s height, maaaaybe half an inch taller depending on who you ask (bitty vs. his mom)
Liam is 6ft3 so he’s 2 inches taller than jack zimmermann
and here’s what they look like together:
caveat: i’m not gonna pretend like i know anything about the builds of a hockey player or a figure skater, i’m just looking at this in terms of height. (also yes, i am aware, liam is slouching a bit in the second two but i think that first pic is a good representation.)
EDIT: I hope I am making it clear that even these pictures exaggerate the height difference because Liam is 2 inches taller than Jack. This was just the best IRL example I could find.
ANOTHER EDIT: JLaw is 5ft9, an inch shorter than shitty. i’m not going to post pictures of the trio but if you look it up, that should give you a general idea of how jack, shitty, and bitty look together. be sure to take into account that jen is wearing heels in most of the pictures on google, so she’s probably an inch or two taller than shitty in those pictures.
Also, I often see bitty as being much closer in height to lardo than to jack when he is in fact more in the middle, closer in height to lardo by an inch (6.5 inch difference between jack and bitty, 5.5 inch difference between lardo and bitty. please call me out if i did that math wrong bc i can’t even do basic calculations.) regardless if those specifics are wrong, bitty is definitely not as close in height to lardo as he is often portrayed.
Imagine trying to seduce Kol for fun, but
you find yourself in real trouble
Warnings: aggression, protective friends, flirting, possible language, mild smut
Another boring Friday night in Mystic Falls
stuck at The Grill with Jeremy and Tyler, waiting for Matt to finish work so
you could all hang out. Being One of the boys was so much more natural, plus
with a body like yours, what guy wouldn’t want to watch you laze around all
over them like you did, especially seeing as you hadn’t physically aged in the
last 500 years or so. Still looking like the 19year old you were when you were
murdered, seemed to have it’s advantages, and with all that time on your hands,
you had all the time in the world to learn about anything and everything
including getting what you wanted when you wanted even without compulsion.
Leaning on the edge of the pool table you watched Tyler try to take the shot,
and miss… again. But his appalling shot had left an even worse one open for
you. Being 5ft7 had it’s advantages, but when it came to playing pool it was a
pain in the ass. Leaning across the pool table and being careful not to touch
anything other than what was required you lined up a perfect 3 ball shot and
sunk it. With a groan Tyler took the cue from you and looked for a way to
salvage his game and possibly his ever shrinking pride.
After ordering another round of drinks from
Matt, Jeremy picked up the cue while I set the game back up. “You break
Gilbert” I giggled. “See if you do a better job than the puppy over
“I will bite you, Y/N/N” he growled
“Oh that’s a great idea, lets give the
Original family a reason to come back to town now that all of them are alive
again, dumbass!” Jeremy groaned.
“Oh come on now mate! We had some
great times when you were oblivious” exclaimed a british accent from
“So it’s true, you made it through to
portal before the other side collapsed Kol?” Jeremy questioned.
“yeah I did mate, thanks for the
concern and all, seeing as you and your miserable sister.. No wait cousin…
whatever murdered me.”
“I will admit it was for no good
reason, and you were right about Silas” Jeremy replied.
“well isn’t that great, you idiots had
to learnt the hard way and get me killed in the process” he said as he
looked around the bar. “Well, well, well who do we have here?” He
exclaimed as his eyes rested on me.
“Y/N Y/L/N” I smiled.
“Pleasure darling” he drawled as
he took my free hand and kissed it.
“Are you for real Mikaelson? I might
be 500 years old but that doesn’t mean that old school flattery works on
me” I challenged.
“Oh I like pretty little things with
sharp tongues” he claimed falling into step with me as I walked around the
“Then how about I show you just how
sharp my tongue is Mikaelson?” I bit back.
“Oh darling” he whispered over my
shoulder, “I would love to know how sharp that tongue is”
“Let me make this clear, Mikaelson,
you are not my type darling” I mocked.
“Whatever you say Y/N Y/L/N/” he
winked as he walked past me brushing his hand against mine. As he left the boys
all looked at me worriedly for a moment. Once we knew he was gone, we went back
to our game of pool with a fresh round of drinks and an elephant in the room
until Matt finished work. Then we headed back to Tyler’s mansion to sit up
drinking and playing x-box all night.
Waking up the next morning I rolled over
hearing a knock on the door. Who the bloody hell would be here at this time of
the morning. As I reached the front door I peered through the glass, not able
to see a silloutte. As I opened the door, I discovered an envelope on the door
mat with my name elegantly handwritten on it. As I picked up the envelope I
could smell a familiar intoxicating scent that I couldn’t quite put my finger
on. I took one final look around to see if there was anyone else around before
closing the door and heading to the kitchen. By this time the boys were also up
and starting on breakfast for themselves. I walked to the fridge and pulled
open the drawer looking for a blood bag to start the day, seeing as being a
vampire has it’s downsides one of them being the need to use blood as sustenance.
“Who is that from?” Matt
questioned, noticing the envelope on the bench.
“No idea, haven’t opened it yet. You
wanna do it for me seeing as ive got my hands full?”
“Sure” he smiled. Suddenly his
face dropped. “Y/N/N/, it’s from a certain Original you may have met last
“Hahahahaha” Tyler screamed.
“Bet you can’t talk yourself out of this stalker”.
“What does he want with Y/N/N/,
Matt..?” Jeremy questioned.
“To make a better first impression. He
wants a do over” Matt looked up worried about my reaction.
“Are you kidding me? Hahahaha that is
brilliant! I’d heard the Mikaelson’s were a demanding bunch but requesting a do
over on a first impression is needy.” I giggled.
“What are you going to do?”
“Go to visit an old friend, it seems I
require to discuss this with Elijah” I replied.
“You know Elijah?” the three boys
“Of course!” I giggled. “I
met him in the 1920’s. Great style and I’m pretty sure was hiding from
“Okay…” Tyler said hesitantly. “Be
“Never Ty, I laugh in the face of
danger Ha Ha Ha” I exclaimed sarcastically.
“Seriously Lion King references
now?” Tyler groaned.
“Yeap!” I smiled. ‘Im going to
get dressed and head off. Ill see you guys later.“ I grinned.
An hour later I was walking to the front
door of what had been the abandoned Mikaelson Mansion. As I got closer I could
hear heated voices inside.
"Kol! You did what!?” a familiar
“It’s not like I compelled her or
anything, I just had to touch her skin and see if it was as soft as your
journals said it was” he whined.
At this point I felt it necessary to knock
on the door.
“Y/N/N!?” Elijah exclaimed as he
opened the door.
“Lijah!” I grinned back.
“Wow, Y/N/N didn’t think you would look
“Hahaha what the hair?” I giggled
having recently dyed it bright purple.
“Yeahh, please come in” He
As I entered I heard a familiar british
“Brother, aren’t you going to
“Kol you have already had the pleasure
of meeting Y/N/N” Elijah growled.
“Y/N/N..? I thought you said your name
was Y/N/N?” He questioned.
“It is. My friends call me Y/N/N. I
picked up the nickname as a kid and its kind of stuck with me” I smiled.
“Oh.. okay… care to elaborate on how
you got the nickname darling?” He purred.
“Nup” I smiled. “You have to
earn that privilege Mikaelson”.
“Oh, playing hard to get, are we?
Don’t you know that it is dangerous to deny me what I want darling?” He
“Oh I wasn’t playing hard to get. I’m
just not interested in a pretentious little boy with a big ego and a British
accent”, you giggle.
“Come now Y/N/N, we have about a century
worth of catching up to do I believe? And from your hair I can tell there is a
lot to tell?” He grinned walking away from Kol towards an open set of
“Why I do believe you are partially
correct, Lijah! But the hair was for shock value, seeing as I went back to
school and all..”, I replied catching up to his brisk pace.
“You were always one for shock value,
weren’t you my dear?” He smiled.
“Well, when you put it like that you
make it sound like a bad thing, Lijah!” I fake whined. “Anyway,
wasn’t that what got your attention in the 1920’s? Wearing a pair of shorts?
God I think Beka and I even caused a car accident that day if I recall?”
“Well what did you expect sweet-art?
With a set of legs like that, in full view. How else was the male population to
respond. I think even you brother, couldn’t help but spit out your
drink?”, came another familiar male voice.
“Nik!” I jumped up.
“I had forgotten how affectionate you
are for somebody who came from London” he grinned. “And I hear you
met out infamous little brother last night… how did that go down with the
little Gilbert hunter?”
“About as well as you would expect,
Nik. Especially when he hit on me infront of the boys… went down about as well
as a fart in a space suit” I giggled back.
“And well does that go down
Darling…?”, came a drawling voice from behind me.
“Well considering you had Tyler, Matt
and Jer considering ways to jump you once you left.. Yeah I’d say you caused a
stir, especially when you touched me..” I got up and turned to him.
“Ty is a good guard dog when he wants to be.. A little over protective
though, seeing as I can take care of myself” I winked at Kol as I brushed
All of a sudden I felt his hand at my wrist
and my body was slammed up against a wall.
“Kol!” Screamed Nik and Lijah.
“Leave it guys, I’m a big girl. I can
handle a cheeky brat.” I grinned at Kol.
All of a sudden he let go of you with an evil
smirk on his face.
“How do you plan on handling me,
“Oh darling!” you mocked. “I
plan on tormenting you in public so that you can’t touch me without drawing
attention. So I think that you should be at the Grill at 7:30 tonight. Only if
you are game though.”
And with that you walked to Elijah and Nik
hugged and kissed them goodbye and promised to come back and catch up.
As you left through the front door, Elijah
grabbed you quickly.
“Y/N/N, just be careful with Kol. You
know his past, so just be careful how far you push him. I know you and him both
like your games, but he wears his heart on his sleeve unknowingly.”
“Elijah, my dear friend, I’m not
planning in pushing him too far. I just want some not so serious company, like
you used to be occasionally in the 20’s.” you smiled.
At 7:00pm you walked into The Grill in a
little tight black dress, my long purple hair in ringlets. As you walked up to
the bar you felt Ty and Jer’s eyes on you. you sat down infront of Matt at the bar
“Your usual gentleman tonight miss Y/N/N?” He smiled.
“Yeah please Matt and keep them
coming. It’s going to be an interesting evening.”
After your third Jack Daniels and Coke, you got
up realising it was just before 7:30, and you figured you should stand up before you drink yourself stupid. As you stood up you tripped over the edge of the chair and as
quick as you vampire reflexes were, they weren’t going to be enough. But then
suddenly you stopped falling.
“Easy there Darling. I don’t want
tonight to be too easy” he winked.
“Kol!” you smiled. “You
“Darling, I have to admit, you look
delicious” he smiled.
“Thank you, Kol” you purr.
“Now now darling, that is a dangerous
look to be giving me” he grinned. “Would you like to eat or play some
“It depends on what you were planning
on eating” you wink.
“Well I’d love to eat you right about
now, but let’s leave that till later.”
“Let’s play some pool and we can find
something to eat later” you giggle.
You played pool for a while, and Matt
supplied us more and more alcohol. Jer and Ty kept their eyes on us the whole
time, watching for any move of Kol’s that they deemed threatening. After
winning, every game, Kol pretended to beg for once last game. You obliged seeing
as you both hadn’t quite drunk the Grill out of alcohol, yet. As you started the next
game you noticed that everyone had started to leave, making the room quieter. As you leant over to take a shot that would win you the games, you felt his hand on your hip. You try to refocus on the shot and as you breathe out to slide the cue through your fingers he squeezes your hip throwing you off balance. you stand up and spin
round at full speed, only to collide with Kol, who pressed himself up against your body.
“Going somewhere, Darling?” Kol
smirked into your ear.
“Yeah, I’m going to freshen up and
then I’m going to find something to eat. Will you join me?” you pur.
“Sounds good, Darling. Do you need a hand in there?” He
“I’m pretty sure I can handle
myself” you winked as you walked away towards the bathrooms.
As you stood in front of the mirror you realised
how flushed you looked. And that he deserved some payback. You quickly took your underwear off and shoved them in your purse. As you stepped out into the bar, you looked across to where he stood at the bar his back stiffened, knowing he could
smell the scent of your excitement that was practically dripping down your legs.
“Ready to go, Kol” you smiled
sweetly as you touched his arm.
“Of course, Darling” he smirked
slipping his arm around your waist and pulling you against him, and walking me out
of the grill into the street. All of a sudden he had you pinned up against the
wall fangs out and all, growling at you as if you were a threat.
“wow, you really know how to convince
a girl to come home with you” you giggled, to hide your arousal from his
“Seriously, Y/N/ you are beyond
tempting!” he growled, his lips brushing your ear.
“Then take what you want, and convince
me that it’s what I need, darling” you winked mockingly.
He pushed you up against the wall further,
pushing you into the bricks, which were crumbling to the ground under your feet
which were now dangling off the ground.
Without time for a breath his lips crashed
up against mine, his hands keeping me pressed against the wall as I felt him
press himself up against me. Feeling his bulge pressed on me I let slip a
“Something funny Darling?” He
asked against your lips.
“Yeah just didn’t know you were so
easy to control. I’d heard you were the
demanding one who couldn’t be controlled but it looks like I’ve got you wrapped
around my finger” you winked as you lifted your hand in front of his face.
“Be careful what you start Y/N/N. You
might not be able to finish it.” He growled as his lips moved along your jawline to your neck just under your ear.
The hitch in your breath was all he needed and in a blur you both had made it to
the front door of his house, your hands and lips touching his skin where you could
while he attempted to get inside. In sheer frustration he turned around and
pinned you up against the door.
“I’d ask you to stop for just a moment
so we can get inside” he panted, his lips brushing up against your ear. His
hands grabbing at my clothes, torn between waiting to get inside and wanting to
finish what we had started. You quickly spun around with my back to him and
kicked the doors open.
“Happy now?” you purred as his hands reached your waist and started to
“What you didn’t want to cause a spectacle and do it on the front stairs, Y/N?” he whispered kissing along my neck.
“Nope. I want you all to myself Master
Kol” you mock.
Well, then I guess you shall have what you
want" he smirked and without warning picked you up and appeared at the door
of what you could only assume was his room.
Within moments his hands were back on your body and his lips on your skin. You weren’t going to fight him anymore. You wanted it
just as bad as he did. But all of a sudden he stopped and looked at youe.
“What’s wrong, Kol?” you questioned
“I’m just deciding what would be the
best way to torture you as pay back for your behaviour in the bar” he
And without a moments warning you found
myself pinned down on his bed, his hands roaming your body but never touching the
exact spots you are craving.
His hands traveled down your body to your legs, then as they traveled back up his lips made contact with the bare skin
of your legs. As he worked his way up your body his hands slid up underneath the
skirt of your dress. His fingers brushed along the wet lips between your legs
making you moan out in pleasure.
“Oh, is that what you want? You want
me to touch you there?” he growled as his fingers brushed over them again.
Your uncontrollable moan was enough to encourage him to start kissing your
upper thighs as he moved the tight material to reveal your bare core. His lips almost touching your core, but his hot breath was enough to nearly
send you over the end. Then he moved his way back up your body, placing kisses
from your hips over your stomach between your breasts and up along your neck
where his hands cupped your face. His lips gently brushed yours and then you
felt his hands tighten on your face. Suddenly, you felt the short sharp crack
of your neck snap.
As you woke you felt the ache in your neck,
you were going to kill him for that nasty little trick. As you went to move
your hands to your neck you realised you couldn’t. In your unconscious state he
had tied you to the bed and placed your underwear back on you, so you were
wearing nothing but bra and panties.
“You’re awake Darling” he smirked
from the doorway.
“Are you freaking kidding me
Kol!?” You yell at him.
“Nope. This is for that nice little
trick you pulled at the bar. It’s going to be a very long night for you
darling. But feel free to scream, nobody else is home”
And with that he was beside the bed
beginning to slowly caress your bare skin, with occasional kisses. His touch
being so torturously slow you whined as he avoided the parts of you that were
“Oh my Darling, this is only the
beginning, we have all night. You will be sorry for torturing me. It’s going to
be a long night.” He smirked as he climbed on top of you.
It was definitely going to be one hell of a

Favourite song atm: ‘That’s Why God Made The Radio’ by The Beach Boys (recently watched Love and Mercy) and 'Till There Was You’ by The Beatles (Paul McCartney’s voice is so beautiful and heavenly), BUT I will forever love The Monkees :)
When I was eighteen I tried killing myself, I starved my self until I could no longer function. I was 78 pounds at 5ft7, my lungs started to fail and I got a lung infection. I saw the grief and hurt on everyone's faces around me. I dug my grave, but I didn't want to pay in it anymore. I started eating, doing the treatments and going to therapy. I am now 24 years old and 156 pounds. There is hope for you. You're beautiful no matter what. Don't take the path I went down. You're stronger than that
Shit, that’s one hell of a recovery! I’m sure you hear this all the time, but I’m proud of you!! It’s people like you that makes me keep going, people like you give me hope for the future, so thank you x
Hey so I recently discovered your blog and I already love it :D so now here is the question: I have already lost 10 kg (I don't know how much this is in pounds) but I want to lose more ( I am about 175 cm tall and about 69 kg heavy, a former swimmer but not going that often anymore after an injury), do you have any tips for me? :)
OKAY!!! So i did the conversions: 10kg is about 22lbs - so congratulations! That is an incredible achievement and you should be very proud of yourself. You weigh 152lbs and you’re 5ft7. You’re at a very appropriate and healthy weight, given your height. If you’re looking to maintain the same weight but do so by losing fat and gaining muscle, I would suggest doing cardio and weight training. A lot of people find success in High Intensity Interval Training when looking to burn more fat, but it’s good not to overwhelm yourself and overwork your body.
"Youd be surprised - he looks tiny but hes not that small! Hes just as tall as me!" So how tall is he? Because I've heard so many different things. It doesn't really help that he's often seen with people so much taller than him! But I've noticed that a lot of insecure men online try to make him seem smaller than he actually is. I love it that he's small-ish, it suits him and can't imagine him any other way. Also he's perfectly proportionate :)
Hes bout 5ft7 / 5ft8 … and i agree! Hes how he should be! Bulky doesnt suit him and those men are just jealous haha!
And he is surrounded by tall men a lot! His brother is taller as are his friends/ all
F that makes him look smaller than he actually is!:)
1. Post a picture of u?
I’ve been thinking about doing this but I’m not sure… I’m stealth so could end up outing myself but then again I don’t think anyone I know is on tumblr… I’ll get back to you. I’ll describe myself though: I’m 5ft7, slightly chubby, blonde, and I wear glasses.
2. Would you date an 18-year-old at the age you are now?
I’m 19 so… yup
4 - would you ever smile at a stranger?
I often do when I’m cycling through town - normally people smile back!
46. Do you ever pass notes to your friends in school?
Sometimes in lectures I’ll write messages to mates about other people in the lecture hall who are annoying… but not a lot
50. Don’t tell me lies, is the last person you texted attractive?
I’m 5ft7 and I weighted just over 24stones.. It has taken me 3 months to get this far with hard work and determination. Using the gym 5 days a week and now become a lifestyle for me and I enjoy new challenges. At the time of taking the recent picture I now weigh at 17stone.. I still have a long way to go and I will get there.
