Aguantá reina, no pienses en todo lo que queres comer, pensá en todo el peso que vas a perder si AGUANTAS.
Nunca te olvides de esas prendas de ropa que tanto te gustan y que ves en las vidrieras de las tiendas puestas en maniquíes con un lindísimo cuerpo, si AGUANTAS, va a quedarte igual algún día.
AGUANTÁ por vos, por todas las veces que te sentiste incómoda siendo la persona más gorda en un lugar, por las veces que viste la diminuta panza de tu amiga y deseaste ser como ella.
AGUANTÁ. Solo tenés que hacer eso, no consumas harinas, no consumas azúcares y JAMÁS pases las 1000 calorías. Hacé ejercicio, VOS PODES.
Y creeme, lo vas a agradecer cada vez que te veas al espejo y recuerdes lo fuerte que sos.
low cal tomato soup
v8 veggie soup!! 70-100 cals
heat up one can of v8 (70c) and put some seasoning in it (i use salt, pepper, garlic, and onion). i like the spicy hot because it has a lot more flavor than the plain juice.
if you have some cals to spare i like to put a tablespoon of shredded cheese for 30c! perfect for liquid fasts or just a snack to keep you warm. very comforting on cold days too :3
♥️Do not fast to the point of fainting! This will cause life-long problems, including brain damage & problems with losing weight in the future.
♠️Keep an eye on your blood sugar! Blood sugar is not just something that diabetic people need to worry about. Its something we all have to be a little bit careful with. If youre feeling faint, break your fast and eat something sugary. Even if its something small like 1 oreo, a spoonful of pure sugar, a brownie, whatever. You do not want to faint (see point #1)
♦️Dont get drunk on an empty stomach! Seriously, eat a small meal first. A sandwich, some nachos, ramen, something like that. Its horrible for your liver, and you will most definitely have a terrible hangover.
♣️NEVER skip out on hydration, fasting or not. Hydration is EXTREMELY important. You'll risk kidney stones, kidney failure, UTIs, and even seizures. Remember to stick to things like water(carbonated or not), tea, and Gatorade(the electrolytes are extremely helpful). Soda doesnt do as good of a job at those things.
♥️DO NOT abuse laxatives! You will dehydrate(see above), and risk having a chemical dependency on them, causing chronic constipation. Laxatives should only be used in small amounts & ONLY for constipation. Talk to your doctor.
♠️Dont workout too hard. Working out can be fun, and its good to do it in moderation. But dont hurt your muscles too much. They say "no pain, no gain," but there is a point where pain crosses the line. Take breaks from working out as well.
♦️Dont overwork yourself physically during a fast/low cal day! Calories are energy. If you dont have that energy, overworking can cause fainting(see point #1).
♣️If youre spacing off from hunger, dont do anything that takes too much concentration. As i talked about in the last point, overworking can be bad physically, but it's important to avoid MENTAL strain as well! Things like driving, filling out important paperwork, writing an important email, doing homework, etc. can be severely impacted by a lack of focus.
Stay safe. Because someone really cares about you.
ive lost 5lbs this week 💓💗💓💗💓💗💓💗

i want to be tiny. i want to look god in my clothes. i want to be able to see my sharp cheekbones, my collarbones, my ribs, my hips. i wand my breats to be smaller. i want to look elegant, not like an elephant. i want to be held. i want small wrists and tiny fingers, not chubby man hands. i want to look good in thights, dresses, skirts. i want to wear low waisted jeans. i want to have more bed space. i want to look more pale. i want to be dead.
