Want to be a Size 0?

This group is for average people, slender people, or skinny people who are trying to lose weight. It's so hard when I (113 pounds) tries to give/recieve advice from a 240 pound lady trying to lose weight. Our issues and strategies are nothing alike! This is for people who want to look like the girls in the movies, for people who are OBSESSED with their weight. For people willing to go to the extreme to get the body they have always wanted.

Please, if you are not 100% serious and dedicated, and you are not going to post, please don't join. Being 113 pounds and feeling the need to be skinnier is something only a few people understand. If you don't understand... please don't join.

get some therapy if you seriously want to look like girls in the movies and are "willing to go to the extreme" to achieve that goal. you sound obsessed, for sure, but not in a good way. dedication is a lot different than obsession. people with obsessions try to break free of them, generally, because they are disruptive to living one's life freely. this has no bearing on your current size, but is a response to the tone of your opening comments.

The opening comment wasn't mine ........but you quite obviousley dont get it!! I feel comfortable being at my ideal weight which is around 108 pounds there is no difference between someone like yourself trying to lose that last five pounds and someone like me. My BMI is the same as someone at 5,6" weighing 130 pounds. I have a very small frame and an extra 5 pounds on me looks alot different than someone with a different body type.

1017 here

i am also small-framed and i am not commenting in response to a tiny person wanting to be more fit or whatever. the OP's opeining comments are alarming and red-flag-raising without question. this site is about offering healthy support, not blind support to whoever wants others to back up their unhealthy obsessions, join in their quest (including going to "extremes"), and pretend it's all good. the phrasing and overall tone of the opening open post is scary and deserves a warning to be cautious and seek the advice of a professional. perhaps the professional will not see any cause for alarm, but i see it clearly.

to the 10:45 poster re: the 10:17 poster.

The 10:45 was responding to the tone and words used in the original post. "OBSESSED" and "willing to go to the extreme" are worrysome and indicative of unhealthy behaviour and attitudes about weight loss and body image; this doesn't really have anything to do with healthy BMI targets. I'm glad they said something, cause I noticed it too.

ooops! sorry, I meant the 10:17 poster was responding. Not the 10:45.

Agreed, 11.01. I'm 5'8, and the weight of a model my height is 135 lbs. And that's within healthy for my height, so I've made that my goal.

BUT, I will NOT go to extremes. Like..not eating... running 60000000 miles to burn every celery stick I put into my mouth...and anything else unhealthy.

You want to be model skinny? Kudos. But remember, models are PRETTY, not always HEALTHY.

Hi there OP, looks like your group is already full!

hopefully the group is full of nurtitionists who are pretending to have an unhealthy obsession with weight/size and they will try to talk some sense and awareness into the OP. hopefully it is not full of others with the same misconceptions about how to attain the particual size pants they seek. hopefully. if only.
