weight gain Anonymous 19283[Reply]

i suffer from being too skinny and being really flat. it's always been my main issue in life and it is due to genetics so I know theres not much I can do but for a while now I've been exploring ways to gain weight. yet as someone who struggles to eat one full meal a day I simply cannot find the appetite. along with having 0 gym experience it's extremly difficult. on top of that i'm actually a bit afraid to gain weight because I already have a fat face. any tips to gain weight in the right places? i would do anything to have a better body

I guarantee that if you eat calorie dense foods consistently like croissants, hamburgers, pizza, ice creams, and sugary drinks you will gain weight even if very skinny

Anonymous 19442

Yeah but the problem is actually getting those down

agree with >>19293

theres these boost high calorie drinks you can get on amazon. a case of them is a little expensive but you get like a months worth of them, and theyre 530 calories for only like 8 ounces of liquid. theyre a little mid tasting in that its just a lot of nutrients packed into a tiny ass drink, and they have to make it Not taste like ass, so in my opinion the chocolate one is the most tolerable. but you can chug one pretty fast, and they helped me.

also, if youre open to it, smoke weed. it will make youre stomach feel like a black hole, able to suck anything in without a feeling of fullness. but if its not up your ally, just slowly stretch your stomach out over time with more foods and liquids, eventually youll feel really hungry three times a day, and even have room for in between snacks, which will put on pounds

These nutrition shakes are a scam. Just get a blender and blend milk, banana, protein powder, and peanut butter.

Anonymous 19512

Yep this is the way. Having more muscle mass increases your basal medabolic rate so you can eat normal amounts and have your body actually utilize the energy instead of just storing it as fat. Pick up a copy of starting strength and study it so you can learn to lift without getting hurt.


Big breasts thread Anonymous 11662[Reply]

Who here /titcow/?
There is a small breast thread, so I thought we could make one too to discuss our ailments/blessings.

>Do you like having big breasts?

>Would your change your breast size? Have you ever considered surgery?
>How has it affected you growing up? Any bad experiences with moids? Any nastiness from other girls?
>Has anyone ever made assumptions about your personality/character/libido because of your breasts?
>Do you consider any types of clothing a no-no because of your breasts?
>Any favourite bra brands or types?
>Any perceived advantages?

Also don't forget to self-check for lumps. Goes for our itty bitty sisters too.

I'm not a titcow tier maybe not big enough to post idk.
>Do you like having big breasts?
Yes and no. I think big breasts contributed to my scoliosis, back pain, and asymmetrical body but it's not as bad as it sounds as they are not massive like some anons ITT. I also look stupid because of how top heavy I am because of my breasts, I would honestly look much better flat. I also am not looking forward to dealing with sagging tits in the future. However, I also like squishing and playing with my boobs because they are fun and soft, boobs can be fun to have so I have come to like them now.
>Would your change your breast size? Have you ever considered surgery?
Now no, but I used to when I was a young teenager for a short period of time.
>How has it affected you growing up? Any bad experiences with moids? Any nastiness from other girls?
From when I was 11-17 years old I would wear sports bras almost exclusively so they were flatter and wouldn't move freely like with a regular bra. I also wore oversized shirts and sweaters, or jackets to further obfuscate them and I was a hunchback too. I have been stared at before. There was one time when I was 13 I was felt up by a little kid as he shouted "MELONS!" when he groped me and whenever I remember that I laugh because it was so random it was silly to me be but he definitely needed to be wrangled by his mother to prevent future pervy antics.
>Has anyone ever made assumptions about your personality/character/libido because of your breasts?
I don't think so?
>Do you consider any types of clothing a no-no because of your breasts?
I don't know what fashion style it's called but I think some skirts and dresses with straps and suspenders, like high waist suspender skirts I can't wear I've tried one of those before and my boobs wouldn't let me. I also hate wearing tight long dresses because I hate the body shape it accentuates as my boobs makes me look fat.
>Any favourite bra brands or types?
I like Asian brands. Idk what type they are or called but they're all the same for the most part. I've worn a few western brands before but I really didn't like them because they weren't comfortable for me but Asian bras are more comfortable for me, fit my breast shape well, and provide more support for them andPost too long.

>Do you like having big breasts?
Overall, yeah. I personally like the way they look in form fitting clothing. I can't go braless though
>Would you change your breast size?
No and no
>How has it affected you growing up?
I've always worn baggier clothing up until hs and my breasts aren't big enough to be noticed in baggier clothing so no harassment from moids or jealousy from girls
>Clothes that are no-no for me
I'm at a healthy bmi with a larger bust; generally speaking, a lot of women's tops fit too tight around my breasts
>Any favourite bra brands or types
This is an unpopular opinion for some, but I actually like Victoria's Secret bras
>Any perceived advantages?
If I wanted to, it's easy to get attention from men. My bf likes them. I also like how they look in a bikini

>dad called me a whore at 15 for wearing a tanktop
I had a similar experience when I was going through puberty. I was slutshamed into putting a shirt on at a water park by my grown ass dusty brother. These are the same men that don't wash their ass

Anonymous 19028

>Do I like them
I do, I think my body is nicely proportioned.

>Bad experiences

I hit puberty kind of early and once my boobs got bigger I wore a bright purple hoodie every single day for a year while I was at school because I felt like everybody was looking at me. I even had an older female teacher point out my hoodie one day and I never knew why she would do that.

I owned few bras growing up and wore bras I grew out of for way too long because anytime my mother brought me clothes shopping I was too shy to say I needed bras, and I felt bad at how expensive they were. It never even penetrated her brain that I had outgrown the need for a training bra and needed to be taken to the store until I spoke up because the training bras stopped fitting.

The girls never minded me but I was standoffish and didn't engage in much drama. I always thought my sister was jealous but I didn't give a shit if she was.

Some boys of certain persuasions would try to ask me out because of my boobs but I always turned them down in an absolute manner and they never bothered me more than once. As an adult people don't bother me about them. I just don't wear low cut tops out unless it's really hot. I know men will look and if their mush brains perceive me as inviting it by wearing certain clothes then they'd be more likely to cause trouble. Unfortunate but that certainly won't change.

>Would I change my boobs

I never thought about getting them reduced. Back pain is assuaged by posture and keeping fit. As for augmentation, no. I'm personally against body mods and especially fillers. It's best to accept what you have and work with it. (I know some people have extreme circumstances, they can do what they want to themselves.)

I used to really dislike it now I feel pretty neutral
Honestly no, I used to seriously consider breast reduction surgery but I decided aggainst it as it would be expensive and the idea of going under the knife scares me
Oh yeah I've always had to deal with moids being disgusting and the occasional but of jealousy from women, you get used to it after a while tho but u remember having big boobs as a young teen and being treated like a sex object by filthy cumbrained moids
Oh yeah loads of people have assumed I sleep around or something just because of my cup size lmao
Tbh I'm very autistic and prefer baggy clothes regardless I try to avoid low cut tops because otherwise a lot of people won't make eye contact
I like Freya and fantasie but tbh I usually stick with sports bras as they comfier
Eh not really, they're fun to stim with I suppose

Anonymous 19388

>Do you like having big breasts?
yes and no. for me the only good part of my body are my breast imo. but they look nice in certain types of clothes, like form fitting. i look terrible and fat in baggy shirts and dresses though.
>Would your change your breast size? Have you ever considered surgery?
i've considered surgery but i wouldn't go through with it bc surgery scares me. but id change my breast size to a c
>How has it affected you growing up? Any bad experiences with moids? Any nastiness from other girls?
they developed very quickly. by the time i was 12 i was around a c cup. and yes people stare, its disgusting especially if its from someone you dont like
>Has anyone ever made assumptions about your personality/character/libido because of your breasts?
most people think i'm stupid so i guess yeah
>Do you consider any types of clothing a no-no because of your breasts?
tube tops and strapless bras.
>Any favourite bra brands or types?
victoria's secret push up bras are the best and most comfortable.

Do you guys like nails?

Anonymous 13902

Yes! I can speak from someone who has weak, thin peeling prone nails who has been able to grow them to this >>13780 length and they are the healthiest they have ever been, though I’ve never been a nail biter so I can’t speak on that.
I use rimmels nail strengthener & sally handsons maximum growth base coat. I was not blessed with strong nails so nail strengtheners are god sent to me. I ALWAYS have my nails painted, if I make the mistake of leaving my nails bare they would simply break the next time I have to use my hands.
Cuticle oil is important because it makes your nails flexible so they are able to bend without snapping off, I apply it daily.
I use a glass nail file since they are supposed to be more gentle on your natural nails. I file them fortnightly or whenever I have a small rip/snag in my nail. only file in one direction don’t go back and forth. When your nails are wet they are at their weakest, so after a shower or washing dishes it’s important to be aware of your hands. My last tip is to have patience, you can’t make your nails grow faster you can only avoid breaking your current growth. :)

Anonymous 13933

Do nail strengteners really work for any of you? Like they do work, they make my nails harder, but instead of tearing like paper, they become so hard and inflexible that my nails start breaking like crisps instead, if that makes sense?

Anonymous 18460

a year late but I use castor oil (or any thick oil) on my nails, and use the warmth of my thumb to rub it in. maybe your nails are too dry?
>they make my nails harder, but instead of tearing like paper, they become so hard and inflexible that my nails start breaking like crisps instead, if that makes sense?
try moisturizing your nails & cuticles, not using nail polish remover, wearing gloves when washing dishes or cleaning and cover your nails with clear polish to prevent cracking

malnutrition may make them more uneven. maybe you could try strength training your chest and massaging to improve bloodflow? most women have asymmetrical breasts (about 88%) so its more common than you think

Anonymous 19339

I was with a girl recently who'd lost a lot of weight and was talking about how her breasts were uneven but I could barely notice even when I was playing with them, I think it's something you're stuck with but it also doesn't matter since probably most people have uneven breasts if you look hard enough (myself included)

How can I be less adorable and more sexy? Anonymous 19258[Reply]

People usually say I'm pretty on the cute spectrum. The problem is that I don't like this, it makes me feel like a little girl. I have quite childish features, mainly my round face and round eyes, I'm always estimated to be younger than my real age.
Is there a way to look older with makeup, sexier?
I feel like every time I try makeup like ''foxy'' ''cat'' I look funnier than anything else. It's really something that makes me insecure. All my life I have followed a more natural makeup very inspired by japanese makeup but I no longer feel comfortable with it.
Basically, how do I go from a babyface to an attractive woman face?

you dont want to hear this, but losing weight will really help.

i used to have the opposite problem, when i was like 13-14 i would have people assume i was an adult. partially because i was extremely tall even then and partially because i was very underweight and therefore i had very pronounced cheekbones and a sort of long narrow face. ive gone up to a bmi of 23 now, as an adult, and its given me a much rounder face and has softened the angularity of my features a lot, makes me look younger and cuter. you could try to do the opposite probably

If you intimidate all men around you, you're not confident, you're just undesirable to stay around with. You lack in social skills and awareness.

Anonymous 19356

Sexiness is less about looks and more about demeanor, about behavior. You can look cute, but you act sexy, act lewd, raunchy, innuendo-y, vulgar, cheap and perverted.

Unless you have big tatas, which will make you look sexy even when you are in a coma.


Anorexia Wars Anonymous 19341[Reply]

I have unwillingly joined the anorexia war.
I am not anorexic, the only eating disorder I have is binge eating and I had it for years which caused me to be overweight and dieting for most of my life with no fruition, I kept gaining weight but I quit trying to diet for a while and solved some of my unaddressed mental and behavioural issues then I started a diet seriously with a whole lifestyle change and it worked this time, I went from having a 29 BMI to a 20 BMI.
I still live with my mother and sister, I have always been the heavier sister, my sister is younger than me and she's been thin all her life, I have some knowledge of the ED community solely because of my familiarity with imageboards, and I know that k-pop fans tend to be part of that community, my sister would skip meals and she lost even more weight having the BMI of 16 so I was concerned and I told my mother about it and she said it wasn't intentional and it just happened, fast forward me losing weight a year later and she is still the same weight she is and she is maintaining it by calculating everything she eats, I don't care because she is an adult and she should know better and I feel like a hypocrite because I was on a strict diet for a while.
occasionally I talk about my diet on Discord because I am open about it, but I took a break about two months ago and realized that my sister is in fact competing with me, she started eating more and stopped working out when I took my break, and I'm actually slipping back into binging plus some of my old habits are slipping back because they are comorbid apparently. I am trying to get back into dieting because I haven't reached my goal yet and I have gained some weight bacl and my sister is back into working out and eating less, burning 500Cals a day and walking so many steps. it's actually absurd because one of the people from Discord who is a fatty started dieting also and she does keto and weird contemporary diets but she also started posting about burning 500-100Cals from walking and lifting weights, additionally, my IRL friend now talks about eating nothing all day but a bagel and coffee, even my aunt is asking me for diet tips and is trying to do an extreme calorie deficit diet, and I feel like I am being under attack while I was taking a break enjoying food and enjoying being a slob women around me are all starting to do these things that I shouldn't be doing because they're unhealthy but I am also spiralling back into my old selfPost too long.

fluctuates between highs and lows
> Body image?
I hate my body, I am 5'8 and 180 lbs. My BMI is 28. I want to lose weight and be at least 135, ideally 120. I have stretch marks and sh scars and my boobs kinda sag. My bf likes my body but I hate it. I used to sleep naked every night but a lot of nights since my weight gain I have to sleep with clothes on bc I dont like being naked. When I wear clothes I can arrange them to be very flattering and look more curvy than fat, I will feel OK then, but when I am naked I am hideous.
> Do you like your face?
Yeah except my jawline bc I have a gross double chin somtimes when I am expressive in the face. Sometimes my nose looks pointy when I smile, and my smile is lopsided looking, but overall I think I am very pretty in the face, I have clear skin. I like wearing makeup.
> Your personality?
No I hate my personality. I don't know where to begin. This is probably the #1 thing i dislike
> Are you doing anything to improve on things? (working out, positive affirmations, skincare, etc)
Trying to diet and lose weight. I wear makeup most days. Not super into skincare but started wearing a moisturizer with sunscreen every day.

>How's your self esteem?
It's pretty average. I know I'm ugly but I am content with that fact.
> Body image?
I'm overweight, my hair is starting to gray and it's thinning out in certain areas. I'm only 20…
> Do you like your face?
FUCK no lmao. I have some disgusting looking smile lines, oily-ass skin, and shit loads of acne. I have no idea why my girlfriend calls this face beautiful lol.
> Your personality?
My personality is one of my strongest traits. I don't tell anyone about my physical insecurities because I know I'm just going to sound like an attention seeker. I think people naturally gravitate towards me because of my odd and humorous personality. I can be a bit annoying at times but I know that the people around me still love and support me for who I am.
> Are you doing anything to improve on things? (working out, positive affirmations, skincare, etc)
I go to the gym 3 times a week for 1 hour and go on 30 minute walks around my town.(I am STILL overweight btw) I use an exfoliator, salicylic acne cleanser, hydrochloric acne patches, and retinol cream every day. I never let anything touch my face aside from my hands. I also use charcoal nose strips, charcoal peel-off mass, and clay masks at least once a month. (None of that shit works btw) I also put my hair in a bonnet each night and use leave-in conditioners. (my hair still looks like dog shit btw). I accept that I'll always be ugly, and that's ok. Being pretty is not meant for everyone.
> Share tips with improving self esteem and etc

Healthy food is cheap to make and if you know what you're doing, you can make it taste good too.
If you have a target nearby, they have packs of six large chicken breast for under 3 dollars per pound. I like to trim them up and bread them in panko mixed with ground pepper, oregano, rosemary, and paprika. Then, you just fry them in peanut or corn oil. Super cheap to make, tasty and very healthy.

Oats, rice, bananas, peanuts, sunflower seeds, and beans/lentils are cheap and healthy. Don't be afraid to season your food if you don't like things bland. Spices are proven to help slightly with weight loss.
