You can be confident and love your body and still be fat...
Of course you can! That's why you won't see the word "skinny" anywhere in my post.
You don't see the word skinny, but the chocolate cake thing implies cutting out the junk food in your life so that you can feel good about your body. Weather or not that means being healthy or being thin it doesn't say, but I took it as being thin because of the way it's worded.
Lol rainbow comments (It's got all possible colours, so CLOSE ENOUGH)
The vid isn't public
I don't know... cake tastes pretty good.
AHAHA PORTAL I PLAYED THAT GAME AHAHA XDXDXD
I have never played it, sadly. I have heard the song though, it's pretty awesome.
The cake is a lie.
How about just quit making Portal jokes, regardless of if you've played?
Even in 2008 that joke was unoriginal.
Redundance level: Over 9000
I wouldn't put myself into the category of being 'butt-hurt', it would seem that you're more 'butt-hurt' than I, but I'm sorry if I've upset you. I certainly wouldn't have thought of "It just bothers me" of as a phrase that implies 'butt-hurt', either.
1) I'm sorry I didn't really intend to come of as an asshole. 2) It just bothers me when people make references to something they haven't experienced, and 3) The "The cake is a lie" jokes are rather old at this point, as much as I loved them.
Well, in response to the second part of your comment, this is the Internet there will be a lot of that get used to it. There is no need to get so butt-hurt over a simple comment.
GTFO. Honestly thought, don't make jokes from the game you haven't played... please...
Maybe I haven't had the money to buy it? Is there really a reason for you to be that big of an asshole about it?
I agree with maxmumnerd.
So that reminded me of that quote "skinny feels better than food tastes" or something like that and I always hated it, but I love the way you worded this post. It's so much more accepting!
The quote is "nothing tastes as good as skinny feels."
Thank you so much! That was my goal :)
Or you could just be bulimic, have a great body, and taste the cake...TWICE
Oh you. That was in poor taste but i laughed
"In poor taste". I c wat u did there.
weight loss blogs on tumblr are a bunch of pictures of girls who struggle with/are supporting ana. So, nah.
It depends. If they are fitness based and show pictures of strong women more likely than not they aren't pro ana.
Unfortunately I have and it is actually one of the hardest things for me to turn down. I'm trying to get to a place where I am comfortable with myself right now so I just wanted to share my mantra with people in hopes that it will help. But now I want cheesecake. Sooo evil haha
Uh, no. There are PROANA blogs, and PROFIT blogs. I have a Profit/fitblr blog. And I know and follow many others who absolutely do not support anorexia and refuse to follow/encourage/influence it. Yes there are some out there who do, but there are some who don't. A Profit/healthy blog will have pictures of fruits and healthy images of girls who have abs and are fit including links to workout videos. :P
If you want to try to lose weight, you should look at weight-loss blogs on tumblr. They're really encouraging.
But why can't you have a piece of cake and still feel good about your body?
Im not saying you can't. I don't know how it works for everyone else but when I eat poorly I feel worse about myself than when I eat well.
I think if you're completely comfortable with your body, having a slice of cake won't change that.
I don't know, I've had some really fucking good cake. Not like "this is good. Where did you get it?" I'm talking about "oh shit, where did you get this and do they sell it by the gallon?"
while eating it, it seems like the best thing on earth. the after feeling is so gross though =/
I feel bad feeling good about how I look because I feel narcissistic. I don't know how I can feel bad about feeling good, but yeah. I confuse myself ._.
Glad to see I'm not the only one. Every time I think something good I have to verbally abuse myself to even it out.
It's the only way to set the universe right.
Man, tell me about it. It's a tough life being fucking sexy.
I know this, but I'm confused as to how you could know this.
I don't get this post. Why can't you have a piece of cake and feel great too?
THIS is a good post to be POTD.
Whoa! Look!! It happened(:
Eating cake makes me feel good about my body because I don't gain the weight from it. Which is the opposite effect I think you were going for.
Especially when you got in (your desired) shape the healthy way.
But can never feel as good as an all you can eat buffet of your favorite food... but confidence and feeling good is a close second.
People who truly feel good about their bodies allow themselves to indulge every once in a while. Most people who put significant thought into avoiding a piece of cake do it because they're insecure about their bodies or are developing habits that will lead to them being insecure.
You don't have to be insecure to sincerely not like how you feel after eating a piece of cake.
That's the definition of insecure
It isn't. One can like how their body is visually, but still not like how they physically feel after eating junk. I know that it's more physical than worrying about how I look for myself. I feel uncomfortable, lethargic, and usually end up getting a stomach ache after eating fatty foods.
Cake is pretty tasty.....
Or you could do what I do - eat what you want and casually work it off. I've been losing weight since I started biking everywhere.
Honestly, in a completely literal sense, if you are fat... Stop being fat. We shouldn't be telling people it's ok if they're fat, people need to get rid of that. If we were a purely instinctual animal fat would no longer exist because natural selection would kill off whoever wasn't fit to live. If you're fat and love your body that's nice, but you shouldn't
I like my body and I'm confident. But holy crap I love cake. And I'm not fat.. so it's a win win. :)
you take it back?
This post strongly suggests that being a regular cake eater contradicts feeling good about your body and having confidence. I respectfully disagree.
This post made me salivate.
try this post
I hate you.
That's weird... I was just staring at a bag of chips thinking that when I read this.
Bitch please, I've had some pretty great cake.
are you on drugs?
I respectfully disagree. This post supports the "nothing tastes as good as skinny feels" argument. Honestly, you can have your cake and your body too. The difference between obesity and enjoying food in general is the ability to trust your body to balance things out. If that means you eat a "healthier" meal after indulging, that's fine. But if that means you can't enjoy a piece of cake, something is wrong.
That's not the point. Read it. Being fit and having self-esteem and confidence feels better than if you got a great taste from a food. It feels great. I honestly don't know where you're coming from.
No, you're right. Thanks for pointing that out. I'm sorry about that rant, it's just that I'm recovering from some eating issues myself (and just learning you can have cake and not be obese) and this post kind of reflected some things I would tell myself during the bad stages. I'm glad you clarified though, sometimes I jump to conclusions :)
Vegetables don't taste very good though.
And nobody tell him that most of them aren't kosher.
Really? I lovvve vegetables and fruits
Nobody tell him that most dog foods include a serving of vegetables.
