chanel iman.

I am absolutely obsessed with model Chanel Iman. She's only 19, and she is absolutely gorrrrrgeous. She is built like a little twig, her walk is fierce, and she can completely transform her look for whatever designer she is working for. Can we talk about her legs?!?! And her arms and her collarbones and her waist and everything!!!! She is my current thinspiration obsession.

I'll keep updating this with more Chanel Iman photos when I have time to look for some. I hope you all are having a good week! Things have been fine over here, not much to report. The weight feels like it is dropping slowly, but I think it will go a little faster soon (I hope). I can see some slight slight changes and I've dropped a couple pounds, but boy, I have a long way to go. I'm excited though. The results are so worth it.

Love to you all, kk

  6. Good Lord, if you are obsessed with this skinny creature, you're stupid!

  7. shes very, very thin... its actually kind of disturbing.

  8. she's way too skinny, that's not even attractive and the fashion industry should not emphasize and make it desirable for women to look like that. It's not sexy, it's sick!

    Today the fashion industry is crazy cause they choose models between 14-20 years old, and they are kids! Women should not look up to girls in magazines. And on another note, it boost pervertism.

  9. im obsessed with Celeste Thorson she has some curves on her body and is a beautiful model without being too skinny.

  10. I just stumbled across your page, and just wanted to drop a note.

    It's very common for girls to want to be skinny. After all, look at the MILLIONS spent in advertising to convince us that is what we should be. I guess they're getting their money's worth. Unfortunately, our society places a lot of value on a woman based on what she looks like, so much so that we often end up valuing ourselves only for what we look like. Instead of looking up to strong women who do so much good in this world, we look up to women who are the physical ideals of what we would like to be. The result is a bunch of shallow, ditzy, naive women who have never put any real effort into anything except that number on the scale.

    You have to value yourself for much more than just your weight, because you ARE so much more than just what you weigh. If you can't love yourself at 180, 190, 200 pounds, then no amount of weight loss will make you a better person. You will be vulnerable to all of those many people out there who prey on our insecurities and doubts about ourselves.

    About 10 years ago I met a very attractive man. He was a jerk and treated me like sh*t, but because I didn't love myself I believed everything he made me feel - that I wasn't good enough and I had to be better to be worthy of him. He made comments about my weight all the time and even though I wasn't overweight, I was certainly no Chanel Aman. I began a very unhealthy (physically and emotionally) slide into despair. I was obsessed every day with getting skinnier to keep him.

    I did end up losing quite a bit of weight. I got a lot of compliments from everyone...except him. He would tell me that I look great, now I just "need to work on my hips a little." Every comment was a back-handed insult that cut into my self-esteem more and more. It was so bad that no matter how much weight I lost, all I saw when I looked into the mirror was fat. Yeah, I got down to a size 4. And I was the most miserable I've EVER been in my life.

    Predictably, after all of that effort to please him, he dumped me for a 19 year old. I was left with no dignity and no self-esteem.

    The reason I tell you this is, even if it's yourself and not a man insulting your weight every day, the effect is the same. You will lose and lose and it will never be good enough. Or you will lose, become depressed, gain, lose again, and hate yourself even more. I've been through it. I've seen so many women go through it.

    An eating disorder is an eating disorder whether it's over- or under-eating. We need to love ourselves enough to nourish our body with good foods, and still have a piece of cake on our birthday without feeling guilty. Love yourself enough to have a good relationship with food. It is not your enemy.

    Love yourself enough that you are happy with being healthy, not obsessed with having a perfect body. If you don't love yourself, it will NEVER be perfect. You will miss out on a whole world of experiences, because you are so obsessed with your body.

    I wish all women the ability to love ourselves and look up to strong, self-assured women and learn something from them. May we never be vulnerable to marketing that only puts us down so we will buy their products to be "better." May we never be vulnerable to jerks who prey on our deepest self-doubts. And may we never be our own worst enemy that convinces us we hate our bodies. We are beautiful, and you have to believe that before you will EVER have the body you want.
