Usually running/swimming/skipping rope can help, but it's all gonna be useless if you dont eat less and/or better.

I've been obsessed with this girl I follow on Tumblr. (Pic related) she's my ideal body and aesthetics. Even though this is a older picture and she has way more tattoos now. It's just nice to see someone who is my height and my ugw. It helps to feel more motivated to lose weight.
I just hate myself for ballooning as big as I did.ughhhh….and I'm still overweight. :(

Muscle on Women Anonymous 8290[Reply]

How do you feel about women having visible muscle or being fit in general?
How much is too much?
Would you be willing to work for it?

Muscular with low bodyfat is the ideal form. I would put the time/effort into it once I can afford exorbitant amounts of chicken and a gym membership. I'm not willing to hop on any steroids to get the varbie look though.

>go to the place full of people obsessed with fitness to see if men generally like girls obsessed with fitness
Thats like saying you know guys generally love girls who are into anime because the people on /a/ told you so. You want to see what men actually want? Look at models, actresses and mainstream porn stars. Men like fit girls, but generally they dont like muscular girls.

Anonymous 8491

Other femanon here.
Can't agree with that a lot of guys like muscle girls but they often don't talk about it because of stigma.
I didn't even know for years that by bf was into that. Still I am too lazy to be a muscle girl anyway(but maybe someday).

I'll try to update you guys! Although, I have no idea how many months it will be until I have a stable job, so it might be a while before I can afford to throw my money at pole classes

Seconding the other anon, thank you for sharing with us!

If any anons ITT like HIIT workouts like me, I highly recommend this one.

First because I was never bored; it moves quickly and the moves are pretty energetic. I had to stop at 13 mins because of period cramps, but I didn't even noticed I went this far to begin with (I was betting on about 7 mins), so that's a big plus for me.

Also, while doing the exercise, I thought I it wasn't that hard and that probably I wasn't getting "results" from it (I like to sweat and feel exhausted lol) but boi o boi, once I stopped my whole body became a fucking waterfall, and I mean that in the best of ways. It actually motivated me to finish the workout when my cramps get a bit more mild.

10/10 will do again.

I started using Chloe Tings Videos four weeks ago and I think they are amazing.
This is the first time that I'm exercising but I finally reached my goal of having a flat belly when relaxed. It was great to see how fast you can actually improve your performance. I needed a lot less breaks during the videos after the 5th day.

My next goal is to get a nicer butt.

Anonymous 8488

Just trying to find a way that works for me. Before COVID I was going to a local gym 2x a week to do one TRX class and one intro pilates and then yoga about 2x a month. I was also really busy back then and not trying to add much more and just focus on making those things a habit.
Since the pandemic I did nothing for months and then one day I snapped and my sister and I started getting up at anywhere between 6-8AM to do … something. My parents have a lot of gym equipment so we use that if it's raining, mostly we bike (it's not too hot out that early), sometimes we do general strength training (what I remember from TRX mostly lol) or use the treadmill. And now the pilates gym is open again and I'm so excited, and I can go back to very small yoga classes too.
It's been really helpful for me to keep the focus OFF of weight and body changes. I'm doing it for mental health and physical health to improve my cardiovascular fitness and maybe build some strength and improve my posture and flexibility. Also to have fun and make my days better. I have this mindset where any exercise>no exercise and if I don't enjoy it then I won't do it so I might as well have fun.


Embarrassing puberty moments Anonymous 8243[Reply]

My mom didn't let me shave my legs in Middle school, and we had to wear skirts. I had dark coarse hairs and I'd get bullied for it. By no means did I have hairy man legs but you would be able to see the hairs.

I relate to this so hard. I have thick black hair on my head and I've always had dark hairy arms and legs. I also had kind of a monobrow, not super obvious but still some thick ass hair connecting my eyebrows. The girls in primary school would do that really horrible humiliating thing where they'd pose everything as a question when they know full well it's not something you can fucking choose.

>"Um….. whyyyy do you have hair between your eyebrows? Um… why don't you just like, shave it off?"

I ended up having a horrible accident where I shaved off like HALF my eyebrows. They took years to fully grow back properly and I just became an even more insecure emo teen who was constantly worrying about their fringe moving and revealing their fucked up eyebrows.

My right ear is cloggled by earwax. Any help?

should try putting a couple drops of mineral oil in your ear and after a couple days try and use a syringe with warm water to try and squirt it out

Anonymous 8439

Visit an ENT (ear nose throat doctor) if you can afford it

Anonymous 8445

There's some solution that you buy without prescription. I had a clogged ear a few years back and after using it every day for a few days it went away. I cant tell you the exact name because I'm not from the US but I'm sure you can find something similar if you search around a bit.

hydrogen peroxide. it's amazing, all fizzy. dirt cheap too. also removes stains from clothing

Anonymous 8463

Get this: https://www.amazon.com/Elephant-Washer-Bottle-Doctor-Easy/dp/B005M2B5P0
Mix one part hydrogen peroxide to three parts warm water and blast it into your ear. Make sure you do it over a sink because the wax will shoot out.

The sun will be down by 8:30 and even then it'll still be 28 degrees. One of the pains of living in the US is how the temperature can fluctuate so much in one day.

Anyone else here have really saggy boobs? Anonymous 6339[Reply]

I grew up raised by a single father who pretty much neglected me. I didn't wear a bra until late middle school and i developed fast. Im 22 now and my breast have been 100% saggy (point straight down) for as long as ive known. They are also pretty big (F cup) and Im planning on losing a significant amount of weight and I know they will get worse. I dont think surgery is a option, do you think guys honestly care that much? Im a virgin but im scared that once i get into a relationship ill be scared that my SO will be turned off by my ugly boobs. I dont think surgery is a option. Is it weird to keep your bra on during sex?

As far as I know, guys only care about saggy breasts as long as they are small. The bigger they are the less they care about shape.
Pretty sure they won't care if you're an F-cup like you mentioned, OP.

Anonymous 8401

I also have saggy c cups. doesn't seem fair. I've been increasing my bench press lately and it seems to have helped a bit. Mostly it's just like >>6748 said and you have to just accept it.

Anonymous 8402

Kinda wish I was saggy so I would have an excuse to get a boobjob. I have the pyramid shaped pointy breasts so it would seem weird that I want to get implants out of nowhere. Saggy breasts with an implant tends to give a really natural look. I’d love to be able to be super busty from implants but kinda too embarrassed of what people who know me think to do it. At least if I was saggy I was have an excuse to tell people.

Anonymous 8403

Girl you don't need an excuse to get implants. You can do whatever you want and you don't need to explain your choices to other people. This genuinely is a case of my body my choice.

Anonymous 8404

Yeah, I get that. Most people would think it's very out of character for me and I don't want awkward looks or mentions.

i h8 this all, unless it's like futuristic early-00s 'y2k aesthetic'

Anonymous 8400


Reviving this thread because I love a lot of styles and trends that were present during the 2000s, including the outdated "tan" gyaru styles like >>5102. I used to be into banba/manba/ganguro styles, it's safe to say they won't be coming back for a while…

I've found myself becoming more nostalgic for a period I lived through and never thought I'd be nostalgic for, the late 2000s 80s-reminiscent Wlliamsburg Apple store Hipster style. Abhorrent, I know, and arguably tackier than anything in this thread, if not more. Just as the 80s were trendy in the 2000s and the 90s were trendy in the previous decade, the 00s will definitely make a comeback soon, but I have a feeling the revival will be much more focused on this mid-to-late-2000s indie style rather than early 2000s futuristic/Y2K styles.

Should I get my hair permed and cut? My hair is really flat and kind of ugly. I've never gotten my hair permed before and I think it might look good on me. I just want to get a wavy look on my hair (like pic related). Any tips for perming your hair?

As someone who can't stand the very idea of sitting and not feeling my hair reaching my butt at least a bit I say, don't cut it.
