i have a binge eating disorder but i really want to lose weight. and the other day i was looking a pictures of insta models and they all looked so skinny. https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/influencer-says-tapas-cocaine-diet-stay-thin-heres-thats-not-healthy-210417445.html do you guys think that it's possible to obtain a body like this without the usage of drugs?

the model in your picture is dangerously skinny. in fact, that is what the article is about. i can tell you from experience that is not an attractive weight to be at. she is at risk for calcium breakdown and serious organ problems. if you feel like that is an attractive body type, you should reevaluate your beauty standards. there are fantastic ways to get skinny which are less harmful than purging and drugs. sticking to a consistent, rigorous workout schedule and limiting calorie intake (in a healthy way!). weight training, low weight high repetition, is another great way to get fit. also keep in mind everyone has a different body type and the results for you will not be the same as another person's. this is the reason some people are good at certain sports. find which you excel at athletically and i promise you you'll start dropping pounds once you get into it.

what was said above is so true! also, choose a path that increases your concentration too; as in, keep your mind clear and have positive thoughts while you're doing exercise or sports or even yoga! i've been there and still on my way to a fit body. once you feel the heaviness leaving your body, you'll look forward to be healthier. if you don't feel pumped up , then it's not the end, it's just that the routine doesn't fit you. you have lots of options! you gotta choose one that's compatible with your style. there are lots of motivational videos and tutorial videos on youtube. don't just watch them like me, but hit it, do at least one exercise per video. though it sounds silly, even forgoing simplest of things matter. whenever you try your level best to not get out of the couch to reach for your phone, that's when get up and take it. make sure you are doing some work, most of the time. stretch out often. also , let me tell ya. it's a long loooooooong path. random sh"theads might flap their gums at ya. don't mind them. either they don't know whatve you're going through or might be real a-holes. mark a a big star on your calendar everyday you workout. that gives you motivation and a diy checklist to see how you're going with your plan. consistency is really the key! you can be overweight and be healthy. once you feel better, you start to look better. :) our social media is messed up. they glorify everything, skinny or curvy, tall or short etc. they give unreachable , unhealthy standards which most people eat up since they are so-so magazines or fashion week or something. i think beauty is in the confidence. it's the way you carry yourself. you can be whoever you wanna be, but you can be only you.. so be the best you! my friend, you can get a healthy body, but it takes commitment , consistency. please take care of yourself though. no matter how we look , it's our heart that matters. literally and metaphorically .. i hope you get to talk about this to a trustworthy person or a counsellor/therapist irl. extremely sorry for the long rant. good vibes to you and hope you feel better. take care!!
