REBLOG IF YOU DON’T GIVE A FLYING FUCK ABOUT A GAP BETWEEN YOUR THIGHS!
Go ahead and tell these ladies they’d look better with a god damn thigh gap…
…just saying. ;]
Aside from no more chaffing, what is the big deal anyway? I’ve known super thin girls 1/3 my size whose legs were thicker than mine. Even at my largest the only part of my legs that touch is the very top of my inner upper-thighs, but that’s because I have long legs and wide hips. Even when I finish losing my weight they still might touch and it’s fine. What’s a gap compared to being able to shop in a regular clothing store? Refusing to settle until your thighs no longer make contact may be setting some girls up for failure and body image issues. Some people just aren’t built that way.
Home gardening is big again. After receiving some freebies form my garden last year, a couple of neighbors decided to make small gardens and are returning the favor. It seems like each week there’s free organic vegetables sitting on the counter. This week is green onions; the lady down the street gave me so many I have no idea what do with all of them. It won’t be long before I’m contributing again. I’ve just pollinated a few more zucchini flowers and my tomato plants are filling out faster then I expected them to.
I was about 5 when I started obsessing about it. I was always chubby and the only one in my kindergarten class who was overweight. There was one boy who liked to point it out whenever he had the chance and liked to inform me of how ugly he thought I was. Each year after that there was always at least one person like him.
I really hurt my left foot and hip last week while attempting what I can only call my stupidest move ever. I thought in a couple days everything would be okay but it’s been about a week and it’s still sore, not as bad as it first was but still. I tried to work through it after the first few days (you don’t have to bother telling me how stupid that was) but it was just too painful.
Between my hip pain, my constant worrying, and my family I think I’ve easily gained at least 5 pounds during that time. I’m still doing my sad attempts at upper body work and I can walk for about 20 minutes but anything long or high-impact is completely out of the question. When I can workout again it’ll have to be in really small increments that I’m not use to. I guess this will give me a good reason to try a completely different workout plan but I still have to continue resting this week. I’m going to focus on eating healthy. After all it’s 80% diet / 20% workout, right?
I think that from now on whenever I see one of those stupid did-you-know Tumblr posts that’s wrong, instead of reblogging it so someone can remove the correction for whatever reason and continue the cycle of misinformation. I’m going to save it, photoshop all over it, and reblog it with Projectloser’s line “did-you-kno.tumblr that 99% of the shit you post just makes me laugh?”
I’m starting to think there is something about me that keeps causing all these side-effects. Medications that work well for everyone else cause me nothing but problems. Even taking half the prescribed dose I woke up the last two days late, feeling sick, and with really low glucose levels. After calling and complaining I was told to stop taking them immediately. I don’t like the type of questions they were asking. Have you slept yet? Is there anyone there with you? Does anyone know your schedule? I don’t even remember what day I called them so I can’t remember if I had taken another dose or not afterward. I think I’d rather feel trapped on a diet, deprived, and deal with constant stalls than deal with feeling this way.
I should make a special tag just for these types of posts so that whenever I start wondering if meds would be healthful I can go back and read them.
