Eating disorders

I want my blog to be purposeful in helping people lose weight the healthy way.

I will give you a background on myself. I am currently 57-58 kilograms. I am usually 54 kilo grams. I am 66.5 inches. Sorry I am not using pounds, etc :/ 57-58 kilograms is around 125 pounds I guess.

Yes this is a good, normal weight; however, my roommate is a model. Yes literally a real advertisement model and she is tall, skinny, and healthy. I am so jealous sometimes I cant stand it and I believe it creates an unhealthy obsession sometimes. However, I want to do everything the healthy way. I believe I am healthy, but whenever you are living in Asia it is hard to believe that 5’6 125 pounds is good :/ Every girl here is so thin and tinny and yet they eat more than I do and eat such unhealthy foods. I believe they focus so much on their body so it becomes hard for me to feel beautiful in my own skin when I have been here for too long.

I know these things are stupid and I know I am venting, but I want people to know that this is normal, but not okay. We should not feel this way. We should feel beautiful in our skin and feel beautiful as we are. I know weight is just a number and it is more about being healthy and happy which is why I am going to recommend some more good and bad blogs.

GOOD blogs and motivation:

BAD:

This blog literally promotes being Anorexic. It is rather sad and helpless, but in some ways I blame society for making us believe what is considered beautiful is considered widely unhealthy.

Today I flipped through my instagram and in sparked the blog idea. ;p There was a 14 year old who is 5’4 and 97 pounds and she calls herself fat and only posts about becoming more skinny. She said she wants to be anorexic  Her motivation is Kate Moss who said “Nothing tatstes as good as skinny feels” Well thats because your British Kate and all of the food in your country sucks. Travel to India, Malaysia, Vietnam, Thailand, Dubai, Lebanon and you will understand how that statement is completely false.

As much as I love her and Victoria Secret, their models for the most part set up an unrealistic image of the female body!

Every Asian high fashion advertisement promotes that beauty is virtually skinny and white. If you think I am kidding, come to Asia!!!

As much as I love Posh Spice, Becks you look better with some meet on your bones ;p Sexy doesnt always mean skinny. Sexy is healthy!
