Thinspiration

I don’t know why but I didn’t post this last week. It’s another video in my ‘Khila Talks’ series on my vlog channel and it seemed appropriate given my recent diet and fitness kick. I stumbled upon pro-ana and thinspiration sites when looking for positive body images to motivate me to eat better and exercise. I was looking for something like this…

But what I found were images like this…

Here’s the video…

    Thank god you’re against this. I read the title starting to panic, thinking you were beginning to use these websites. Personally I know an awful lot about eating disorders (for personal reasons I’m not willing to share why with anyone except my husband and children when they’re old enough). I’ve been lucky enought to never suffer like this – but I know it’s not so easy to read some of the ‘tips’ etc. online and just forget them, people always seem to go back for more. Wish there was some way to stop these websites from coming back.

      I can’t believe you have the audacity to pretend you care about me not developing an eating disorder when you commented on my ootd that I was ‘obviously a big girl’ … if anything you are willing one on me!

    Khila you look great as you are you are pretty with a fab figure. Don’t let thoughts of dieting rule your life. Plus you are the only beauty guru who puts herself on the front line (with the hair straightening debacle). Well done for being you

    Like Sian, I was initially worried when I read the blog title, because I’ve done extensive research on the online pro-ana community. Those were some pretty awful quotes. Their “mantras” get me every time..they are, like you said, heartbreaking. I wish there were an easier way to reach these girls and let them know they don’t have to go to these extremes. Thank you for posting your video on this topic.

      thanks for watching reading! My intention was to ‘shock’ with the title but by no means worry my readers. I have no intention of starving myself.. I have a much too healthy appetite x
