    I used to be like that and then medication ****ed me over :cry2:

    Unistudent gives good advice. Don't expect immediate results though, and perhaps ease it in. I was going to the gym twice a week before Christmas for 3 months but I've now upped it to 4 times a week because my body can take it. :yep:
    Yeah but despite the medication you've made progress

    To the other discussion in this thread re abs:

    That's personal preference. In my opinion, i prefer a girl a bit chunkier than ab level but that's simply preference. The Youtube video i linked to is what i consider a very good, strong healthy body. Not emaciated.

    At the end of the day women have a much higher bf% than men so aiming for visible abs is perhaps heading towards unhealthy territory but i see no reason why you can't aim for 'some' abs

    Now if only my weight would reflect that :rofl: (kidding, I'm actually rather happy with my progress)

    I also agree with you on the abs thing. The pic the OP linked? **** she is thin. :sad:

    Don't obsess over weight. Your weight going up is not a bad thing at all.
    You need to remember that.

    Yeah too thin imo but not quite dangerously so.

    I keep telling myself it's muscle. And then my ex laughs when he weighs himself because he is 8kg lighter than me :lol: I do have stronger legs though, that's probably why.

    Agreed, she definitely is. Body goals that

    You'll need to lift weights to get that not just cardio.
    My friend has abs like that and does gymnastics but no weights.

    It wasn't Gigi's fault. She lost weight because of this.

    Track your calories and you can have some 'junk' food. You can fit it in.

    A great advantage of lifting (and doing cardio etc) is you can eat more. I always have a Saturday night takeaway and usually always have chocolate/crisps etc most nights.
    Banning yourself from these foods is not good imo.

    He's super light then, malnourished tbh.
    Can't remember your weight but keep lifting and progressing where you can and you'll be fine.

    N.B the Youtuber i linked to had an eating disorder previously. You can change your attitude to food (this goes to OP too).

    Yeah she does look great but anyone can get there.

    Look for progress, not perfection.

    I'd much rather Gigi's body, she's not too thin at all.
