    They all look amazing and I love watching the VS fashion show BUT I did read somewhere recently that they don't eat solid food for a week before the show and have no liquids for like 24/48 hours before to 'dry out'! I'd still love to have a body like some of them on a 'normal' day though but that is extreme!

    Lol I wish, too short for that I haven't been prepping for 10 years, it's more a case of I've been chubby and out of shape since then compared to all my skinny limbed peers at the time (I started getting hips etc at that age) so I've always been striving to look slimmer. It's only in the past few months I've become more focused and specific about achieving a particular look.
    Ohhh!! :/ I was quite excited for a second there... that I know a future supermodel :jive: !!! :sign:

    Ohhh... LOL me too have always been a bit on the chubby size since I was small.... really got focused recntly and hit the gym srsly!!!

    (Although tbf I dont think height has anyting to do with modelling its more of face and physique I guess)

    Tbh I don't intend on following their regime and I certainly don't think it's the only way to get a body like that. Apparently Ms Lima does boxing and body weight exercises in preparation but personally I prefer HIIT on the treadmill and weights (both free and machine) along with a good diet. I'm not too far off losing the last bit of fat off my stomach so that is my goal now, that and shaping up my legs.

    Hows your progress been?

    It's very rare to get a model below 5'7 though as you generally have to be 5'8+ for catwalk catalogue and agencies would get only a very limited use of models otherwise. Otherwise I'd be well in there

    Wow from your pictures you definitely didn't look bottom heavy so that's a good thing right? I have the big butt 'problem' too (I'm also black)
    75% of black women have the big butt problem (including myself). Yes I'm smaller which is why it is not that obvious but I still have the same problems most black women with big butts have when buying jeans and skirts. (In fact I am two size bigger on bottom than I am on top despite the weight loss)

    I never said anything about a man or steroids:confused: I just don't see why a man would want a muscular girl, muscular and feminine are kind of at odds with one another. Nothing wrong with not just a bag of bones, but the words defined and toned are usually applied to women rather than muscular.
    Ok maybe I misunderstood your comment but what would you define as too much? As I think what I'm trying to say is that I don't agree with your definition of too much. In other words a woman looks great with some definition as long as they don't look like they take steriods

    Urrm for me personally the cross over from bikini/underwear model figure into fitness model territory is too much. I can't speak for the whole male population though.

    Slow... I guess!!! The problem was that I had my A-level exams and was almost in a dormant state for at least 2-3 months so I put on quite alot of weight !!!

    Wen I started off I lost alot of weight now its just stable... so I'm planning to go a bit further and maybe try HIIT Hopefully can lose a bit of this fat!!!!

    I don't bother with jeans by and large because they're such a pain. I used to obsess about the butt thing but I'm growing to accept it and actually I get complimented on it a fair bit so I guess it's not all bad.

    That's a shame, know what you mean about exams. When all my uni deadlines were coming up my gym routine was all messed up and I didn't see any results. HIIT is really good though, try cranking up the speed slightly week by week - if you're dripping with sweat each session you know you're onto a winner lol.

    Yeah I enjoy it, it's actually quite fun

    It's also good motivation to stay in shape because nearly everyone in my class is really skinny lol.
