Eating Disordered Things in Real Life vs. Movies
Laxatives in movies: Person immediately has blow-out diarrhea, with much hilarity.
Laxatives in real life: Person waits six hours.. twelve hours.. forgets about taking laxatives.. then has blow-out diarrhea, usually in a public place, with much embarrassment.
Purging in movies: Person sticks finger down throat, daintily pukes quietly into toilet, flushes, and looks fabulous.
Purging in real life: Person sticks whatever is available down throat, struggles to puke, makes dying walrus noises, finally vomits, vomit comes out nose, gets vomit and toilet water splashed into face and hair, snots and drools for several more minutes, flushes, washes combination of vomit and snot off face, still looks like a train wreck and smells like vomit.
Fasting in movies: Person never eats, ever, is super happy, and immediately becomes emaciated.
Fasting in real life: Person fasts until the hunger overtakes the mind, finally breaks down and eats whatever is available, cries and is miserable, takes months to lose a significant amount of weight because metabolism is dead.
Over-exercise in movies: Person runs for hours on the treadmill, looks fabulous and toned.
Over-exercise in real life: Person struggles to run for hours on the treadmill, stumbles with shaking legs for the last hour, still looks flabby due to muscle wasting.
Anorexics and bulimics in movies: Severely emaciated, everyone concerned.
Anorexics and bulimics in real life: Come in all sizes, usually of "normal" weight, very few people notice or concerned.
30-60 minutes a day is all it’s going to take. Eat well. Eat good foods. Eat foods you’d be proud to tell the tumblr community about. Work hard. Push yourself. Test your limits. Get off tumblr, workout for 30 minutes, come back, and tell us all about it. Post pictures of your sweat stains. If you just ran a mile for the very first time, celebrate! Put it on tumblr, get praise, do it again. This can be fun. Fitblrs make losing weight, exercising, and eating healthy FUN. Fitblr or die. Reblog if you’re a fitblr who’s in it to win it!

I hate phone fights… And I hate fighting about money because people are greedy. And combining the two makes me so angry I feel like i know what the hulk felt like right before he went all green … And then I’m just sad because there is nothing I can do to make that person be a good person… Because you can’t fix people, you just have to take them for what they are
Love it … Except they forgot Russian twists which rock for obliques
