Why do so many fans want wwe to go back to tv 14?
Today, it seems to be all the rage to discuss the WWE's PG era and how it doesn't compare to the WWE's TV-14 era. Many want to see another Attitude Era, but is it seriously the best thing for the WWE? I'd say heck no. And why is that you ask? Well it's simple, look at all the money they currently make through this era known as the "WWE PG Era." For every one person it equals out to one ticket, for every family it equals out to three or more tickets, which last time I checked equals more, right math majors? Some of you may say, well if that's the case, then why is WWE not selling out every arena making a lot of money? Well, at Over the Limit, they made $650,000 alone for those inside the arena. And you know who I saw in the audience? Families, go figure. But the arena wasn't sold out, I heard. Good amount of money, however. The reason the arenas and PPVs aren't selling so much nowadays is not because the WWE Universe doesn't want to buy the PPVs or go to the arenas to see the WWE Superstars LIVE. It's because the economy has been bad since late 2008. Before 2008, the WWE was doing pretty well in selling out arenas and PPVs also hitting big, it was only after the stock market crash and the huge economic down turn that the WWE as well as many other companies suffered. However, the WWE stayed a billion-dollar business. They realized that if they made things more family-friendly, they could attract more to their audience, then build them up. Basically, they wanted to start with those under 10, then make them fans another 10 or more years. It was like starting over for them really. And if you ask me, it's better going after a family than that one male person in the 18-30 demographic. While it may tick that 18- to 30-year-old off in seeing it's once controversial program turned into something a family could sit down and watch, it made sense economically. B/R Writer Sumz wrote an article bashing the PG Era, making some good points along the way, but many I disagreed with. You can see his article here . His article was basically about the PG kid vs the Attitude Era kid. He mentioned that the AE kid didn't know what was real and fake, where as the PG kid does. I think I can speak for all of us when I say that what some think is real compared to others will be different. Also, if you're 10 years old in the AE era, you'll think many things you see are real, and the same thing could be said for the PG era, kids are gullible people, it's just fact. Also, a 10-year-old may think wrestling isn't predetermined entertainment either. So, there ya go. Sumz also mentioned that the women are subjected to their looks and not their wrestling talent in the PG era. It's obvious that it was the same case in the 90s, heck, Sable was a valet with Hunter Heart Helmsley and then all the sudden she was in Women's Title matches, she wasn't a beautiful in-ring technician. Look at just about all of the people they brought in, many models. The WWE is actually doing a better job NOW of training their female talent coming through FCW more so than they did before in the 90s. Trish Stratus may be the best WWE Diva of all time, which many probably wouldn't dispute. But, she was a fitness model and was not a wrestler at all when she came in. She had to learn on the job and if you saw her wrestle in the 90s, you'd think she was as good as any of you out there. But she got better and better as the years went on, and became one of the best female wrestlers of all time. So it's blatently obvious SHE worked to become a wrestler, but wasn't brought in for that role. She was brought in to be eye candy. There were choice people they brought in for wrestler roles, such as Chyna, Ivory, and Lita. The rest were models, the same thing the WWE does today, but like I said, they are getting better on training them to become good in the ring nowadays. Some are also saying that the PG era is to blame about the brand split, but it's obvious that is wrong, because that was way before the PG era. That was pretty much after the Invasion angle in 2001. In 2002, I believe, is when the first WWE Draft happened where the WWE split the roster. If you ask me, it was a smart idea because it gave people who'd never get a chance in the main event scene, well, a chance. Guys like CM Punk, Randy Orton, John Cena, Sheamus, Jack Swagger, Edge, and countless others may have never gotten to the main event scene without the brand split, because while they were good mid-card guys, they wouldn't of had a chance to do so with such a crowded roster. Heck, we could still be seeing the same guys with a World Title, at least now we are seeing new stars built. Mid-carders who have the talent to main event would never see it, now they do, which makes more stars that the WWE can market, so brill http://bleacherreport.com/articles/399382-wwes-pg-era-why-i-dare-to-defend-it-as-the-best-thing-for-the-wwe
Intimidated to workout in the school gym/weight room?
So my gym class is coming to an end this semester, and in my province gym is not a mandatory course for gr.11 or gr.12. So bascially I am done with gym for the rest of my life unless I wish to do gym and stay fit. I really want to take gym cardio or gym weights as an elective thru gr.11 and 12 expcept I do not have many blocks to spare and I really want to take othere academic classes during those blocks for example extra sciences because I want to be a doctor. Also I know I can always go get a membership at private fitness centre except they cost money and being a 15 year old student I do not currently have job and even if i did I want to save for university purposes and driver's license and cars. I feel bad to ask my parents to pay for this too on top of everything. I don't currently play any sports outside of school or even on my school team becuase first of all I am not very athletic and secondly I do not have the time to, ( I live a very busy life--long story). I am happy with my current body and I have lean muscle from the years of hockey I used to play and I want to keep it this way except I do not know how to. If you were to look at me you would not think I was athletic or bulky or anything like that. I have never one female athlete of the year of anything... There is one option that could save my problem and it is the school weight room. It is open during lunch and just all the time, so you could use it during free blocks if you wished. Except I dont have any free blocks. Lunch is the perfect time to because it is an hour and 10 minutes plenty of time to stay in shape. But my issue is the only people who use the weight room are guys and I personally have not seen a girl in there or heard of any girl going there to workout. So if I were to go in there you could imagine the looks and stares I would get. And not to mention the talk... There is no rule saying only guys are allowed in there, but you know how it is the weight room is for boys because they like to be built. I'm not really interesed in gaining big muscle or being a crazy girl with a six pack and big biceps. I'm merely just going in there to maintain my shape. That does not mean I will only do the treadmill or bicycle, I also like a couple of othere machines in there, and I dont mind lifting a couple of 5 pound dumbells once in a while. How can I go about doing this without feeling intimidated... All of my girlfriends are on sports teams and do competitive dancing etc. So they don't feel the need to workout because they are already getting excercise. Even if i could talk a few of the well known (popular) girls to go in there with me then more girls would follow and I will not have this problem. How can I talk people into this plan, and just if you were in my situation what would you do. I know I can always go for a run outside and stay fit at home, but where i live it always rains and is very dark. Plus there is nothing that beats a good workout at a gym. Again what should i do please help me?? Thankyou so much i really appreciate it. I love staying in shape it make me feel good about myself if i didn't want to be a doctor so bad and save people's live i would totally become a model because I have the body for it :P
What kind of bike/bicycle would suit a person with these needs?
I'm thinking of getting a bike in order to do some moderate exercise every day, but I'm not sure what model to look for - I don't know what's ideal for my needs. I'm a 5'7" female. I'm not sure of leg measurements though, all I can say is that my legs are on the longish side for my height. I will be using the bike every day, cycling a few miles at least, purely to increase my own fitness level. I don't intend to become a pro racer or to go off road. ;) The bike will be used primarily on the miles of very new cycle path which have been laid in my town. I know from my previous cycling experience that I'm really uncomfortable on those thin framed racing type bikes, I prefer a sturdier frame. Also, although I'm only 22, I have a bad shoulder (the result of an old whiplash injury) so I'd need a bike that wouldn't stress that too much. Thanks for your advice!
Is my story any good or even interesting?
This is an anecdote i wrote for english class. it's a true story, i don't really like it but i wondering if its just me. you know how everyone id their worst critic. I’d always told myself that I would never date a guy I met at work. I should have listened to myself because it only took one guy to confirm my reasons. You see, I work at an image based restaurant who’s best known for their all-female staff in orange shorts and their hot wings. (Yes, I work at Hooters.) Being that many guys come in only seeing me as a part of that image, I find it hard to believe that a guy could be genuinely interested in me aside from that perspective. I thought it was a fair assumption, and one I stuck with until recently. One Saturday night over the summer I had found myself admiring the most charming smile who had keep walking in and out of the restaurant all night. As a hostess it’s my job to greet the door, but with him I couldn’t help but return such an adorable smile. He had dark hair, wore a leather jacket-he wasn’t too tall, but then again neither am I. finally I found an excuse to talk to him. I asked if he needed help with any of the merchandise he’d appeared to be interested in. Eventually he’d strayed away from that topic and after a brief introduction admitted he thought I was adorable and wanted to take me out sometime. I was so giddy that this dreamy boy had been interested in me I completely forgot about my rule and set up a date. His name was Cody. I remember hearing it thinking I didn’t really like his name but he seemed very sweet. He picked me up late one night in junky Honda civic. I’d never realized what a difference it makes when a guy has a nice car. Nevertheless I decided not to judge. We were on our way to his apartment to hang out with his friends and share some drinks. He told me he was a part time model, he was a singer in a band, and he was also a personal trainer at 24 hour fitness. It sounded too good to be true! I even found one of my favorite CD’s laying in a pile in his messy car. Things seemed to start off so well but still I felt something was off. As we walked to his apartment he told me about his roommates Jason and Tim. He described them to me and I made note who was who so I could make a good impression. When we walked in the door they were sitting on the couch watching TV. He says to me, “This is Jason and Tim. Guys, this is Kayla.” I wasn’t sure whether to be confused, upset, or embarrassed. I turned to him with a blank stare, “Um, my name isn’t Kayla. It’s KELCEY.” His roommates watched us somewhat enjoying their friend’s humility exclaiming “Ooooo!” Cody replied, “Oh my goodness! I’m soooo sorry! I could have sworn you said your name was Kayla!” “I was wearing a name tag when you met me.” I’m pretty sure he had no other excuse after that. I decided to accept his apology and at least enjoy a few drinks. The more he talked the more it seemed he was trying to show off. Cody was a nice boy, but I remembered that I wasn’t really into guys with faux hawks. Something about his smile started to bother me too. I told him that it was getting late and I should go home soon. It wasn’t even 2am, and I usually go home around 3 or so, but he didn’t know that. He also didn’t know that when I got home I went back out with the boy who did know my name.

How do I deal with rude people on Yahoo Answers?
I am 32. Female. I am a bodybuilder recovering from my last knee surgery. I ahve major joint problems. I don't go to the gym, because I am embarrassed I lost so much size, and I don't want them to see me. I work out and do physical therapy by myself at home. I was freakishly big and that was my goal. I was 190, about 5'7 and 5% - 6% body fat at my best. Now i'm 140, feel small and it's killing me. I won many shows every time I competed for my age group and overall etc. So I tried to make friends online since I don't leave the house much. I started using computers while injured to pass the time. Computers are knew to me, since I spent my life in a gym. I worked out all day and worked in gyms. I noticed people are extremely rude to me. They say rude things to me. They try and spread rumors about me, which is immature. I tried to help everyone, but they hurt my feelings. They copy my questions and answers, block me for months, mock me and make up lie about me. What 's worse is they say I am lying when I tell the truth. The are insensitive and don't realize I have feelings. I just recently payed attention to the things people say about me online, and they ARE lying and spreading rumors. I went and blocked all the suspicious people. Then the violations stopped. I answered every ones Star Wars questions when I first came on Yahoo Answers and most fitness questions I thought were good. But it is painful to talk about the gym a lot, since I can not do what I used to. I asked for help with depression lately and one person was so rude it made me think of my parents who are abusive, and I took a lot of medications to sleep to not feel the pain. Then they gave me a violation for the question. My account was eventually suspeded. I need the accounts to ask questions. I have no one at home to talk to. I am on level 7 on this account and just got to 5 on the back up that was suspended. I had the second, because reporter trolls have been after me. I have some fetishes that I do talk about. It feels good to talk about them. They are harmless, and people don't understand them. I am not a pervert or pedophile. I would give anyone the shirt off my back. Anyway I noticed people calling me names when they answered my questions. One person said I'm f*cking ugly, one said I'm stupid. I would not have made lots of money modeling or won bodybuilding competitions if I was ugly. I would not have been accepted to West Point if I was stupid. I got 4.28 GPA in high school and straight A's in college. It hurts when they spread rumors that I am ugly, old, stupid etc. These things are not true, and it reminds me of my parents who were abusive psyically, emotionally and verbally when I was a kid. I also have OCD, ADHD, Depression and possibley Schizophrenia. People on Yahoo Answers make it worse. They don't know me. I am also androgynous/gender queer. I am a good person. I would give the shirt of my back for anyone. I try to help people any way I can. I have always been this way and have been taken advantage of many times. The people I dated have always been abusive. I lost a lot of money, because I spent it all on them. I lost a lot of time too. So these rude people on Yahoo Answers have made me feel really bad about myself. I love Star Wars and working out. Is that really something to make fun of? Boba Fett is my favorite character. I can realte to him especially young Boba Fett. By age 19 I realized I am sexually attracted to him. This opened up a whole new world for me. Fan fiction, art and cosplay. I write about Boba Fett, draw and paint Boba Fett. People have even stolen my fan fiction and posted it as theirs. I make my own Mandalorian armor and cosplay bounty hunters with a group of people. I am kind of different I admit, but why are they so rude to me? I put an actual picture of myself up in my avatar, so they could see I'm not lying and they had the nerve to tell me it isn't me. They took it down. It was a recent picture, so I was not even freakishly big. By the way my dreams were always to join the Army or be a firefighter/paramedic. I got side tracked with bodybuilding. Now I want to make a career change, and it is hard to get people to take me seriously at this age. People online don't believe anything I say, and it hurts. Evey day I think about suicide, because I have no friends. I feel I would be doing everyone a favor. And with all the rude people I realize life is not worth living. The autistic kid I volunteer to help, who is home schooled, has more friends than me. I never thumbed anyone down or reported anyone by the way. This is all very immature to me. I like helping people. Why do people hate me? How do I not let people hurt my feelings? I know I asked this yesterday but did not get a lot of answers.

Is it okay for society to have standards?
Yes, this is really, really long. Ever since grade school, I was taught that magazine covers were not real. That all of these models (male or female) were getting airbrushed, photoshopped, on steroids, anorexic etc. I had been educated to believe that anorexia was bad and that society encouraged it through magazines, Hollywood etc. This was ingrained so much into my mind, that it should come as no surprise I was disgusted with the online communities known as "pro-ana" and "pro-mia" for promoting eating disorders as a way of achieving physical beauty and perfection and the use of "thinspiration" pictures or videos. These sites did and do their best to say that all of things you have to do in order to not eat are fine, and that you should ignore those around you trying to discourage your problem. It made perfect sense to me to view this as use of the internet in a harmful way. The pictures were horrible. As a guy, I can with quite some confidence say there is not a man alive who would want most of those women that they touted as beautiful, perfect and strong. One day I came across what was promoted as an alternative to thispos. "Fitspiration" pictures were claimed by proponents to be the proper form of inspiration. Claiming the importance of eating correctly and working out to be a healthy and good looking person, it seemed like the internet cause and community one should back 100 percent! It does seem to say that you are not attractive if you are overweight, but more importantly, you're unhealthy, and it's something you should be concerned about for your own sake! As someone who had recently lost double digits worth of weight and had gotten into the whole idea of working out *and* eating properly, I was quite pleased. The positive energy and encouragement behind fitspiration to be the best you can physically be for all of it's benefits seemed to bring to society the opposite of what thinspiration does. I was therefore confused to see a blog post bashing it as another version of thinspo. The author of the blog claimed it was still bad, encouraging photos saying one does not need to look like the image with the text in order to be healthy. She also went into saying it was all advertising, but that's easily dismissible because I can only think of maybe 5 fitspo pictures from companies. The rest are made by fitness inspired people. Her argument seemed more based around the idea that such a body should not be idealized. That such goals are unrealistic, claiming photoshop and other such "cheating" as is done in the demonized swimsuit magazines and lingerie catalogs. As though no body should be aspired to if that body is aspired to for the sake of looking good. As though any consensus about what healthy, desirable body might look like is bad. To me, that sounds ridiculous. We as human beings are impressed by achieving goals that are challenging to obtain. For 99% of the men and women looking to get fit, the bodies of the people in the pictures are realistic. Not easy, but realistic. It feels like the author of this blog wants someone who does not take care of themselves to be considered equally as attractive as someone who does. Now don't get me wrong, I fully believe in the value of both of such individuals as people, and I would certainly agree that too often the overweight are wrongfully brought down. Though, is it so bad to have *some* of their encouragement for self improvement to be in the form of looking good? Is it not okay to tell students "you have equal human value that nobody can take away, but that doesn't mean you can't make yourself more physically appealing and/or healthier?" It seems like we're simultaneously telling people they're fine just the way they are and then trying to demonize obesity and that's everywhere in schools. You can't win or know what winning looks like and that seems to be the burning confusement you leave your junior high/high school health classes with. They say one thing in school and you learn another thing in the "real world." You're therefore left by a hypocritical world being told you're fine while it's actions still gear toward a mentality recognizing the fit/fitter as more attractive. Why can't we have some kind of consistency. Something that says "no starving yourself is not right, safe or attractive and neither is eating yourself to death." How can one logically have such passionate disdain for fitspiration? "I'm Ms. She's-to-big now she's-to-thin." - Britney Spears http://www.beautyredefined.net/why-fitspiration-isnt-so-inspirational/

What kind of diet should I follow to acheive this look-longer and leaner?
I am a female that weighs 155 lbs., down from 172. In high school I weighed 132, but still had patches of major muscle, like calves that wouldn't budge, but also patches of major fat, like hips, thighs, and stomach, very stocky. I was very active in tennis, ballet, and did some cardio. Recently, I pretty much been following a more protein than carbs diet, doing 3 weight training sessions, 6 cardio sessions, a dance, Pilates, or yoga class occasionally to get off the weight I did. However, this guy I work with that runs at least 20 minutes a day and eats nothing but carbs...his lunch is like pasta, a bagel, frozen yogurt and a cookie! But his body is exactly what I'd like to achieve, long and lean and not overly muscular. He was pretty thin to begin with. Should I eat carbs and just do cardio? I'd like to loose some of the muscle I have as well as more fat. I don't see my trainer for another week and a half, so I'd like to get some ideas before that. Thanks a lot.
Is there any happy medium in Female Bodybuilding?
That is where women can workout, get strong, build muscle, stay feminine and avoid the nasty 'roid' remarks? I say that because I believe this endeavor receives too much negativity. I thought that was very insightful and straight forward input Brad and no, not sexist.
How many lbs. can I lose with the ABC diet?
I'm 5' 11" and I weigh about 117 lbs. and my metabolism is like ... Not slow, not fast.. But medium.. I run at least a mile or more once a week and do streches everyday on the weekdays! On the weekends, i rest my muscles and dont work out at all.. Only on the weekdays! How much would I lose if I did the ABC diet? And how much would I lose if I was halfway done with it? Any type of answers would be good!
How can I get over my lack of self-confidence?
I'm a 21-year-old male and I seriously have a big big problem with my self-confidence when meeting new people, especially girls :( Everyone who knows me tells me that I'm very good-looking, especially my body because I go gym regularly and I'm a part-time fitness model. Despite of that, I don't have ANY self-confidence in myself. I don't know why. Maybe because I'm not local (I'm a foreigner studying at uni), maybe because I have a large scar on my neck, I could list hundreds of reasons but that's not the point... Everytime I meet new people, I struggle to keep the conversation going, I'm very shy and I can never be myself because I'm not sure of how people are going to react... I don't even joke because I think nobody is gonna think I'm funny :( It takes weeks (if not months) for 1 out of 100 people who I meet to warm up to me... With girls I never take the first step because I think that they're going to think that I'm a dikhead. In clubs I never get to dance with a girl because I just don't have the courage to invite a girl to dance with me... The worst of all is that in my mind I keep making up excuses why not to talk to her, why not to dance with her, etc... I don't really speak to girls because I don't bloody know what to say... What could help me? Is there any therapies or something? Like psychologists? Would they help? Please don't tell me to "just do it" or "just be myself at all times" because I can't. I've been trying for the whole of my life and all I do is cry myself to sleep and sometimes even think of suicide... :( Is there a solution for people like me? It's not like I constantly moan or think negatively. Well a little bit maybe. The point is that when I meet new people I just say Hi and not much else. I'm usually the quiet guy in the corner because I don't know how to engage in a conversation. So people never get to know me and I can't mess around and be silly with them. What I mean is that I can never get to the point where I can be totally comfortable with anyone...

Too fat OR too skinny? Which is more attractive?
If you were forced to pick ONE, which would you pick as more attractive (or worse), someone that is very fat, or very skinny? The reason I'm asking this question is because I was watching a youtube video of people making fun of people that are overweight, and then a lot of people were arguing it is just as bad if not worse for people that are very skinny and called anorexic. Now I understand there is discrimination towards both but which gets it worse...being too fat or too skinny...
Help! I'm always cold!?
I have been tested for thyroid disease and my TSH is normal. Do NOT tell me to exercise; I ride my bike 1-2 hours a day, 6-7 days a week and work out with weights 30+ minutes often 2 times a day 5-6 days a week. I am a personal trainer, bodybuilder, and fitness model. I exercise PLENTY. I also eat a very healthy diet, rarely drink, and never smoke. I am fairly certain that I do not have Raynaud's Syndrome because while I may get cold, my extremities do not change colors as is typical with Raynaud's. My one vice: caffeinated drinks. I drink coffee in the morning with skim milk and Splenda. Sometimes I will drink Rock Star Zero Carb if I need an extra boost. I do not drink both on the same day. My boss and friends joke around and tell me it's because I have "zero body fat." I am a female with 15% fat. Could my lack of body fat really be it? Or may I have something different wrong with me? Is there any way I can stop being so freakin' COLD ALL the time outside of just wearing jackets and sweatshirts in 70 degree weather? *LOL*
Why Can't Females Be In The British Army Infantry?
I think it's ridiculous and sexist. A while back, someone told me that females can't be in the infantry because "If that woman was stuck during a fight with the Taliban etc, the men would risk their own safety to save that womans life" or something along that line. If that's true, it's just a pathetic excuse. The men would soon learn to protect themselves during training, as would the women. Another reason I got was "Women wouldn't be able to carry all the equipment." That's a load of crap as well. I've been involved in a Marines training exercise where the women did better than the men. If anyone has a valid reason why women can't join the infantry, please explain because I'm really struggling to figure out why it's not possible. Cheers x Vincent: If what you're saying is true, then the British Army Officers are obviously stupid. That may be the case, but I can't believe they haven't thought about separating them during training. As for when they're at a posting, they'll have been through the training and will be disciplined enough to behave. You could also do it the other way round. You could have the females training with the lads. Under a strict Officer, they'd soon learn to behave as well. Bo Jangles: I would quite happily do that, along with a lot of other girls I know. I can understand what you're saying, but it's still ridiculous. With the same training, the women could be just as effective as the men would be in those situations.

Female Muscle: What is the motivation for some women to want to get ripped?
And these days they are not just the stereotypical deep voiced, protruding jawline type of ladies. Some women are feminine looking who want to be big these days. I respect anyone who wants to be healthy and have a great physique, but do you think for women, the want to be big stretches beyond being fit? I have read that some women who get into bodybuilding have had a bad past so that made me question, do you think the reason behind wanting to be muscular is emotional?? Insecurity maybe in some cases?? I have no doubt that the men who are really huge have emotional probs too so i am in no way saying because a woman wants muscles she has to have an emotional issue going on in her life. As i said, i respect anyone who wants to be fit and strong. By question really comes from the fact that if you did a survey of how many girls wanted muscles, the majority would say no and then there are those women (as i said, alot of which these days are feminine) who want to be massive too continued what do you think of this assumption? please, if all you are going to say is "its because they are lesbian" or "they want to look like men", refrain from answering. I just wanted to hear peoples opinions regarding what i stated may (i say may) be the reason some women want to be muscular
getting some abs?
i'm female, 5'2", and weigh around 115 pounds. i've lost some weight, and i would like to lose more, but also get abs. what should i do? i already do about 90 crunches in a day, legups, play handball for about 2 hours a day, and sometimes go jogging. any advice on how to get some abs, and how to lose weight overall?
This question is geared toward the men...?
I've been wondering about something for a long time...I grew up in the 60s and 70s when a voluptuos woman was considered attractive. I'm not talking obese, just not this anorexic look of today. Twiggy, the ultra thin model came in during the late 60s/early 70s, but the "twig" look really didn't fly and the voluptuos, curvy woman was desired as always. After Olivia Newton-John's hit single and video, "Lets get physical" came out in the 80s, everyone caught the fitness bug (which isn't a bad thing), but it seemed to snowball from there and now it's almost as if one is a leper if they have any shape at all. So I'm curious to know what body type the men of today find attractive the most? Does the boney, scrawny look *really* turn you on?? If so, why? I'm a healthy woman, with some meat on her bones, but I don't look like the Michelin Man, either (for those who dont know who the Michelin Man is, he's a tire company icon with "rolls") so I don't know if I should stay the same or diet. Help?
Why is it like this, who decided on model rules?
im 115 pounds (52 kilo) and 5'' and it makes me really angry that i get approached by people, and models telling me that im beautiful and its a shame in not 20 cm taller because id be a great model! i'm not saying this to be arrogant but it really bothers me, its the only thing i've ever really wanted to do and i cant because i have bad genes! i dont understand why fat pretty girls are praised and told to be models when me, a healthy and proportionate woman, cant model because im too short!! who decided on these rules? why do i need to grow 20cm (which is never, ever going to happen) to walk around in clothes! im australian, from melbourne so its even harder to get into modelling here. I am not fat, im actually very skinny, just not tall!
skinny or curvy?
What do you think looks more attractive on a women. I know its whats on the inside that really matters and all that. I am asking this as I am a fitness instructor and find very very few females who like their curves its always "I want a smaller bum" or "or I need to shrink my hips". So I would just like to see If the answers reflect how alot of girls act.
should i do this?
Hi everyone, i have been watching what i eat for a while now along with exercising regularly and i have lost about 10 pounds. I am female, 5'9 and i weight 138 pounds. I REALLY want to get down to 130-135 before december 16th, so i thought maybe i should go low carb 2 weeks before i leave. currently i have special k cereal and i usually eat a small whole grain sandwich at lunch time. i never eat white bread, pasta or potatoes. I have been cheating once or twice a week though with chocolate and sweets. Do you think i should just stick to what im doing and NOT cheat from now until december, or go with cutting out all the carbs. Im worried to cut out carbs because i like to exercise regularly and when i did low carb before my blood sugar went really low and i crashed with ice cream and chocolate to make myself feel better, as i got really sick and dizzy. pushing it? do you mean fat??
Paradoxically unsure; please read all the way through and give any advice?
Hi. I’m a male virgin and very confused/unsure about my sexual preference/orientation and am hoping to get some advice. I find I am usually far more interested in/attracted to males physically and aesthetically speaking and aroused sexually by imaginings of the male naked form. I used to think this was some kind of jealousy and that I was attracted by imagining I would look like that (since of course the imagery is usually of men of a more ideal physique) but I have since made drastic improvements in fitness and still find this preference just as prominent. But the thought of anal intercourse is somewhat repulsive to me and I generally, when imagining my ideal intercourse, picture vaginal intercourse. Socially speaking, I have most always only gotten along well with females. I grew up without a male role model and thus have more feminine personality traits, get along better with females, and don’t have as good an understanding of other males as well as do they not usually get along well with me since they obviously pick up on my discomfort. This caused me to sort of dislike other guys, distance myself from them, and only really be able to connect socially with girls. I have never been in a near-serious romantic relationship but have always been romantically interested in females, not males, since, again, I can only connect with females. Perhaps this is why I have always been turned down: they find me more as a friend and maybe too similar? And now it’s been a while since I’ve asked a girl out because this lack of confidence and escalated confusion. It has always been my dream to stay a virgin until marriage and part of me fears that the only way I can resolve this is by seeking sexual encounters with both. So in summary, I feel I am homosexual physically/sexually, but socially/romantically heterosexual. Seeking any advice you might have for this situation. Many thanks. With hope.
What does it say about America when 9 year olds are worried about their body images?
My nephew is only 9, yet I caught him in the mirror yesterday shirtless flexing his six pack and biceps. He also said "when I get a chest I'm just going to beast, no one will be able to tackle me." What kind of effect is the media having on little boys and girls? Do you think it's positive? Encouraging kids like my nephew to stay fit? Or do you think it is more damaging and creates a false ideal body that a lot of kids can't reach? More like milk chocolate with light brown eyes no homo.... @louise: Yeah but what do I say? I don't think he's doing it for looks but maybe performance in the sport he likes..But yeah there are other kids out there who might be a healthy weight but feel like they need to be skinnier or have a six pack. I'm asking is that a bad thing or good thing? It seems bad if they can't reach their goals and that causes them to struggle with their body image, but it seems good that kids are trying to get fit. That's where I'm stuck.
How to reduce body fat?
Hi, I'm a 13 year old female. I'm about 5'1 and I'm 45-47kg depending on what time of the day I use the scale. I'm small-medium sized boned, if "bone sizes" even exists or if it's even relevant. Without professional calculation, I found that I generally have a healthy BMI through BMI calculators on the internet. I don't exactly want to lose any weight because I know that for my body proportions, I am healthy, but it's the ratio of fat and muscle that I'm not happy with. I want to be tight and toned, but I can't seem to do that because I have fat that I don't know how to lose. I've been exercising irregularly since April and it is now June, but in total, on average, I exercised only about 2 times a week in a month. I tend to get on an exercise kick and I can work out continuously each day, but I can't seem to go on for more than a week. I also get discouraged when I don't see changes. My mentality understands that it's not possible to see changes overnight, but my body discourages and sort of tells me that the workouts don't do anything. It really sucks. Also, my diet and intake of food isn't very healthy. I try to eat healthy once in a while, but I don't have very many healthy restaurants around and when healthy food runs out at my house, it is hard to stock up the food again so I turn to greasy foods that has loads of carbohydrates so that I don't starve, haha. Whenever I get discouraged, I have a tendency to Google pictures of gorgeous girls such as Victoria's Secret models, celebrities and even friends on Facebook who has amazing bodies. But I try to refrain myself from doing that because it makes me crazy, obsessive and I'm afraid of possibly developing an eating disorder. I also want to try and erase the language of "want" because I understand that my bodies aren't made exactly like their's and I'm different, everyone is different. But I'm too much of a human to stop comparing myself, hahaha. Damn it. I'm not active either. I'm not into activities or sports because I'm completely crap at them and just not interested. I just love fitness. I want to be able to pick out healthy foods and never turn to unhealthy foods again. To work out without being discouraged too. So, I want to know if it's even possible for me to lose fat, look better and feel better. If anybody is wiling to help or give any tips, I appreciate it. Thank you <3
what is wrong with me?
I have an eating disorder i think and i try so hard but its not enough. i lost about 20 pounds in 2 or 3 months. I want to get rid of this feeling. The feeling that im not good enough. the feeling that i am not beautiful. but i have so many people telling me " your fat" i want to look like this http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=thinspo&view=detail&id=0E8264901CF3A92127C48C9F8FEF3EFEF9D98C10 i just want people to notice me. i want people to like me. people to care. and i didn't want this. I was 125 lbs 5'7'' and now im 113 lbs 5'7'' or 8'' i had a little fat on my and i worked it off by exercising. people started saying "you look good." when i got thinner that not that's all i think about. i stopped eating so i can get thinner. and i now that not eating wont make me like that above, it will kill me and make me look like a skeleton. I hate society because that is what made me come to this. all i see is " lose 20 pounds here" it makes me feel so insecure. i want this to stop because im not happy. i cut myself every day because i feel bad when i eat. (i don't throw up) my mom has noticed i don't eat and she just tells me" you bones are going to break" i wanna know how to stop this feeling. i believe at one point i like "lost it" because i ate, but now it is worse than before. i count calories exercise and sleep. the thing is i miss my friends, my family and everything. i had straight A's and not i have B's and C's. I don't think its that bad now but i feel it will only get worse. I cant seek treatment because i don't know how. To tell you the truth, i don't have any money to go anywhere to get treatment. I just want it to stop. I look at all these photos of perfectly thin girls and i just want to be that. SO BAD!!!! SUPER DUPER BAD!!!!!!!!!!!!! But i don't wanna die. And i know they are photo shopped but i have this "voice" in my head telling me to work harder, that im not worthy to walk on this planet, that i should just kill myself, that no one loves me. All i just want to do is lose weight and it hurts. not only me but love ones around me. I see girls in my school with like a size 2 or 0 frame and i just envy them so much. I think how do they get there. They seem so perfect, and i fallen into Ana's spell. I just wanna eat again. I wanna know how Chipotle tastes again. I wanna eat at McDonald's without feeling like a fat hog. does anyone know how to help me.? Please and thank you.

How to be stronger without gaining muscles?
Ok so I'm a 15 yr old girl I'm 5'1 (I think) and is 122 lbs (last I checked) and I want to be stronger by that I don't mean that I want to have huge muscles but I just want to be stronger. Questions; 1) How can you be stronger than someone who is a body builder and still have the model look? (by that I mean how can you be strong by remaining fit not overly muscular, not anorexic skin & bones thin,not sumo wrestler fat, but sexy fit or hot like you have the right amount of muscles kinda like Angelina Jolie XP) -I'm a girl so no abs but flat belly, no muscles but have good arm & leg strength is what I'm after- 2) How can you lift weights and not get muscles? (I know people say just don't increase the number of weights you use but I want to test my self and increase my strength but don't want muscles) 3) How can I increase my jump vertically and horizontally (without using a running start)? (do you train your leg muscles? how?) 4) How can I run faster? (do I do leg training?) 5) Can I be flexible and strong? (like can I increase my flexibility with trying to increase my muscle strength? or will that just over train my muscles causing them to be damaged) 6) How can I increase my flexibility (I don't want to be a gymnast flexible but flexible like doing the splits, reaching my toes, doing a high kick that's way above your head) -I can't do any of those and I think I'm just dreaming XP - 7) How can you increase your height? (Is that even possible cause I'm 15 and I think I'm done with my growth spurts) -is it true that you can stretch your spine?- 8) How can you get rid of those under arm flab? (the jiggly thing under your arms that some people call bingo momma arms or something) 9) How can you get rid of the extra fat on you thighs? (I think its your under thigh?) 10) Can you give me a site that teaches you different exercises like have the videos cause I might be doing some of my exercises wrong 11) How do you lift dumbbells cause the way I lift mine feels weirdly wrong I know I may sound like a short, fat girl who's trying to be sexy and such but (yeah I am XP) I just realized that I am so weak, on our fitness test all of my scores went down and I stopped exercising at home so I think I should try to exercise with a goal this time NOTE : before I just did exercises like push ups,jumping jacks, crunches, lifting dumbbells cause my mom has the computer and my dad's hogging the TV and I have nothing to do Thanks for all your help and sorry for wasting your time XP

is this healthy?
i am starting to notice that im kind of obsessing about my weight and fitness... my friends are always trying to get me to eat when im not hungry and so is my family. i am always measuring myself and weighing myself. also i am ask a lot of questions about being fat or skinny and worry about overeating all the time. i always do eat, but i was wondering if i should be worried anyway? im not anorexic because i eat, and definitely not bulimic cause i HATE puking, but is being kind of obsessed about your body just as bad? plz help, and dont leave rude comments. thanks ~R oh, sorry i see what you mean about the "i hate puking" part, let me explain- i have only puked a few times in my memory and they were when i was in the hospital with a stomach alcer when i was 6 years old (8 yrs ago). have not puked since then... puking has a very bad connotation in my memory because i was in the hospital for a week the last time i puked. hope you understand what i meant

Running/Exercising around the neighborhood?
A question on how males who run shirtless get over this phobia! I like to do cardio with no shirt on, because its interesting and motivating to be like those gus on fitness magazines, and because I just discharged from the military and want to stay looking good, but there's still a phobia of people watching me, males its kind of weird and females is kind of disrespectful to them. Dont get me wrong, Im no where near fat and should have the confidence of running without a shirt. How do you males deal with that? Im also doig cardio to become more happier in life, more energetic, maybe a model, and I want to quit the nastiness of cigarettes, b/c I know its bad for your health and attitude, but as Im doing it I feel cool because its there and Im old enough to do it (23). Any advice?

help me lose weight this summer?
pretty please i REALLY wanna become a model by the time im 16,and i just turned 16 last year,problem is my weight and height.im 5'3,122 lbs.according to the BMI chart,thats healthy and normal weight.but to be a model i gotta do better than that right?like,i gotta be taller and skinnier.i mean,the height and weight records as normal,but that doesnt mean i look good.i know how to dress up as fashion has always been my skill since i was little,but i also come up with good fashion ideas that i end up not getting to wear and therefore experience(which is honestly the most important part for me)cuz my body doesnt look good.im most problematic with my thighs.its like SUPPOSE to be skinny.but thanks to cellulite,i look bigger than im suppose to be.its really frustrating,im not suppose to look like this but thanks to this cellulite(probably the enemy of a majority of the female population)i look like this.i mean,i see girls my age,older and younger skinny and i think"oh,i look like that too,except i have cellulite".hey,im all for the love your body for what it is thing,but in my case i gotta ged rid of this cellulite.poeple say that its impossible to get rid of,but from dietricians,to personal trainers,even celebs have said that they suffered the same fate as me and have found a way to get out of it.problem is,im a minor,short on cash,and dont have the money to pay for all the expensive stuff such as personal trainers and fancy gym equipment.for a gym membership,i'll try to do that and squeeze it into my schedule.so,please give me some tips?i dont wanna look like one of those poeple who dieted,looked great,and all of a sudden became a bit worse than when they first started.no,i dont wanna do that. they say thats what happens when you take diet pills,so that why i crossed it off my options list right away.so yeah,i'd love it if you give me diet tips,like exercises to perform(be specific as possible on how to perform them) and my eating diet(what foods to avoid as much as possible,what to avoid comepletely,what specific foods you recommend when it comes to vegetables,poultry,meat,grains) btw,im omnivorous...i tried and failed miserably when i tried to become vegetarian...even more so when i tried to go vegan! it lasted for like what, 10 hours?LOL. :D however,i never was one to crave soda. i always went for water or fruit juice.i hear that adjusting to your new diet is hard as you gotta eliminate stuff,most of the time your fave foods.soda's a common example,but since i never liked soda,thats already a good step right?also,i've theorized that the diet doesnt always work not because its not effective(such as the exercise at least 2 hours a day one,the eat 5 small meals a day one, and the just exercise and eat right one?),but bcuz its not the right one for your body?i think you gotta experiment first b4 you get what works for you?sorry for speaking in general terms here,but please leave me some tips. it would also be nice if you directky put them in the answers,i dont mind if you give me links to sites with info and stuff,but the first thing one mentioned would be nicer. thats it....thanks for the answers! P.S.remember,im also trying to get taller,so also keep that in mind when aswering! thanks again! :D P.P.S. i never craved soda,but i like junk food...and i have a sweet tooth. i'll try to control myself more.
Im 13 and want to lose weight, what sports/exercising can i do?
Ok before u say shit like oh your only 13 your still growing blah blah blah. Read this, i quit football when i was about 8 and never played sport since, i NEVER exercise because i never know what to do. Im making a change literally TOMORROW. Im sick of being a fat slob that does nothing and im sick of being bullied for being fat. Im 6'3, and weigh 76kg I have dreams of being a model but if i dont make a strict change its never gonna happen. I have good looks but my fat is off-putting. Im joining basketball this week but i want to join more sports i want to take this really serious. I also want to surf and swim but im scared because of my body i cant hide it in a swim suit. Also i want to join hiphop but im scared of getting judged by other girls. Anyways what exercises can i do in my home/neighbourhood? And can i have tips for a 13 year old joining a gym? Oh one more question, this is a bit embarrassing. I absolutely hate veggies they make me feel sick and i gag when i try and eat them, is there any possible way that i can like the taste or atleast not mind the taste?
Boyfriend told me he wants me to "build muscles all over"!?
Here's a little history: My boyfriend and I started law school almost 2 years ago. When we started school, we were both in shape. We weren't overweight but we weren't bodybuilders or super athletes either. We were ok, healthy looking and within the healthy weight range. After one year of law school stress and not having enough time to work out and stuff, we both gained weight. We both gained 10-15 pounds. In the summer, we decided to start working out and dieting and we did. We both lost around 20 pounds. We started doing crossfit and lifting weights. I gained some muscle and lost a lot of fat. I've never been into body building and I just don't like the idea of dieting so much to the extent that my abs start showing. I want to be able to enjoy food from time to time. I eat pretty healthy most of the time and I work out more than I ever did. I have an hour glass shape and I get compliments about my body ALL the time. I am actually happy with how my body looks. I'm 5'2 and 125 lbs. I don't have much fat in my belly but I don't have ripped abs either, although I know I am pretty strong and healthy and lift heavier than the average woman does. Just when I started thinking I am happy with my body (give or take some fat here or there), we go to the gym today and there were two spray tanned body builder females who were having a photoshoot. Boyfriend couldn't stop staring at them. He made comments like: "these girls are freakin RIPPED and strong as hell". He also commented on how other guys in the gym wouldn't stop looking at them and called them "thirsty" although I caught him looking a lot as well. To me, they looked fake, but I admit that they look muscular and strong and hot. Later on we were talking about working out and he was talking about how he wants to start getting a six pack and bigger biceps and chest. I said I liked how he looked now but that maybe a little bigger bicep and chest won't hurt. Then I asked him, how do you want me to look? He said, I always liked how you look. So I said, no seriously, how would you want me to look? He says, I want you to start gaining muscle all over your body, your arms your abs your glutes and thighs, I want you to be muscular. I said really? Why do you want me to look so muscular? He says, because it looks a lot nicer. Honestly, this really hurt my feelings. To me it seemed quite unrealistic and the fact that he implied his dissatisfaction with how I look now by saying "muscular would look a lot nicer" really hurt me. I didn't tell him I want you to be like a fitness model, I just agreed with him when he said that he wants a bigger bicep and some chest which I know is completely doable. I made sure that I said I like how he looks now because I REALLY do love how he looks and think he's super hot. On the other hand, how does he expect me to have almost a body builder body? It's hard enough maintaining my body weight and trying to be healthy and doing crossfit. Do you think it was rude and unsensitive of him? I feel quite upset. It is really shaking my self image. He said he's sorry he hurt me when I said that he had unrealistic expectations of me, but it still hurts too much for me to just forget about it. What should I tell him? Do you think I should worry that he might not find me as attractive the way I am as I thought? I don't want to sound cocky but, I am beautiful and I ALWAYS get compliments about how I look and about my body. I am pretty curvy and have a pretty face. But now, I FEEL terrible and not enough for my boyfriend.

Is it bad if you consume more calories than you do everyday?
I have up to 750 calories a day, but since Friday I haven't really been keeping up with this. I've kind of been going overboard and consumed a little bit over 800. Is that going to effect me in any way? If so, how? It's just that I've heard that if you eat more than you already do, it won't be good for you. Also, I know that most of you will probably say something like "This isn't good! You're supposed have 1,500 calories a day!" Thing is, I can't really get to that much, and I feel fine with 700 everyday. As in, it's enough for me and keeps me... alive. I'm about 5ft1 and 101lbs. That's healthy, right? Anyway, thanks.
