This is an older article from stumptuous.com but I just ran into it again and thought I'd share. There is a lot of talk in the logs about body image issues and so it might be a good read.
Krista is such a fine writer on this topic. Thanks for pointing out this article, debra.
My money is on the fact that I'm 40 lbs. over weight and have a penis.
Where is that damn 'like' button. Nice find Deb. I <3 the contrast between Tara Lipinski and Lisa Leslie.
That's not what I heard.
I love Krista. Coming across her site is what got me into powerlifting. I spent ages examining her dork/dive lifting form pictures.
That particular article is a very good read but you should check them all out.
but Deb you do look like a fitness model.
That was a GREAT article. I'm saving the link and going to it any time I feel like duct taping my mouth shut and eating only protein shakes through a straw. . .
Krista is wonderful. I came across her site 5 years ago, but I'm still a dork. I thought about volunteering to be a spokesmodel of "What NOT to do" or "Don't let this happen to you!"
The pictures are great!There was another site I came across from a thread that showed "normal" people at different weights, and how 140lbs can look entirely different on one person than another. I wish I could find that site again, the images were surprising and eye opening.Great article Deb.
Oh I know what site you're talking about... lemme see if I can scare up the web address.
I think this is it:http://www.cockeyed.com/photos/bodies/heightweight.shtml
Click INTO the weight/height square there are more pictures.
Cuz we cook and eat them fitness models on our George Foremans...Arrrr!!!! Cool article
no offense to fitness models
I wonder what one of these comprised only of people who regularly train would look like?
good article and good reminder!
How would you define < regularly train >
People who consistently and systematically follow a lifting program.
I love how Tara Lipinski is half the size of Lisa Leslie.....
But anyway, that was an awesome article!
oh I liked this one.
Cept Debs does look like a fitness model... Nice find.
This is a great article. I'm 5'2, 148 pounds, size 6/8. This is the smallest I've ever been. I can look around me and see much thinner women but I've recently come to realize that I will never be one of them. I have too much muscle There's something to be said for analyzing your goals and the body type you were born with and making yourself the best version you can be given both parameters.
