I had thought that thinspo was only something people with eating disorders are aware of. But apparently its used by others to motivate weight loss goals. I suppose that what healthy people find beautiful and inspiring are different than what I as a woman with an e.d. finds beautiful. A lot of times I will look at a picture and think:
"This is wrong, she looks ill. She needs to eat" but of course then there's the flip-side of that voice that says
"Gorgeous, you should look like that. Why don't you look like that!? You're disgusting"
Lets just hope that the healthy people that use pictures to motivate their weight loss goals will be a lot safer and nicer to themselves than I am to myself.
