  • PB Confessions

    I confess that, as a woman, I prefer the look of slenderness to the look of muscularity. I even prefer it over "curvy."

    I'm not one of those "I don't lift weights because I don't want to bulk up" people either; I lift weights regularly and have done for 20 years and counting. I LOVE lifting weights. I have a good amount of muscle on me. I'm just saying: my dream body would have some soft curves, some muscles and - yes - some bone. Maybe a little clavicle, maybe a bit of hip bone or slightly visible ribs. I'd love to have little toothpickish arms - maybe I could finally squeeze my pipes into a short-sleeve blouse!

    AND... when people post videos of strong Crossfit-type women, I look at them and see similarities to my own body - but it's not a body style I covet. AND - even worse! - when people post videos (in horror) of the slender raw vegan video girls or Zuzana from BodyRock, those are the bodies I'd most like to resemble.

    I have a touch of Big Girl Syndrome - similar to Little-Man Syndrome but in reverse. At 5'11" carrying a lot of muscle looks less Tight n' Toned and more Large-and-In-Charge.)

    By the way, there's no judgement allowed in the confession booth.

    Confess your PB sins here.

    I feel your pain. This is perhaps why I've avoided (albeit, wrongly) weights all my life. I'm built like a brick shit house with a lot of fat over top. So even with losing the fat, I'm still going to look like a line backer.

    Thanks to these German and Italian genetics!

    I was just complaining about my massive calves in another thread. Seemingly, I'm doomed to live with them for the rest of my line backer life.

      EricC, I'm 5-10 and I totally get it. I'm built to hold muscle, and some of the cute clothes just won't work. Ever. (don't get me started on my massive calves! Ha!) Confession: i feel the same way as you!

        I really like the skinny look too.

        But, I tend to put on muscle really quickly too, and I don't want to be curvy, I've been 'curvy' all my life (In the obese sense of the word...>.>. The further away from a feminine form I can get the happier I will be.

        FtM FtW. No hormones for me, though, just top surgery.

          I also confess that I have myself fully convinced that feasting on chicken wings at a pub is perfectly Paleo.

              Sometimes, not always. And they are more than likely fried in canola, so...
              Oh, and then there's the whole matter of the accompanying beer.

              Ha- actually, this is how I do it: chicken wings = Primal; beer = part of my 20%.
              I love when I can manipulate math in my favour...

                Whoa whoa whoa. You're posting Zuzana as an example of a "skinny girl" with "not too much muscle"?

                This woman?


                She's freaking ripped. Not "skinny" at all. Of course her breasts are obviously fake, but still... she's essentially a body builder.

                  There is a gastro pub close by that has grilled naked wings served in hot sauce w/o msg/sugar mixed with butter that has 35 wing night. Apparently the owner decided that the recipe made for the best wings and wasn't doing it for health consciousness.

                    and her boobs don't look fake to me. She looks about a C cup.

                      I confess that some of the male transformations should have stopped before they looked quite so mean and muscular. It's a look that frightens me and I do not find it attractive at all. I prefer less muscles, less angularity in the face. Give me a skinny guy with a beard and long hair who obviously spends a lot of time outdoors playing his backpacking guitar.

                          my butt looks pretty okay in my new yoga pants. it's the rest of me that doesn't

                          and it looks so easy for everyone else here to get all in shape

                          so i confess that i hate you all
                          (not really, calm down)
                          beautiful
                          yeah you are

                          Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.
                          lol

                            She looks like she's running sub-15% body fat, very low for a woman, to be that ripped. Unless she has incredible genetics (which is possible), those babies are probably enhanced. Maybe she's just got a lot of padding in that sports bra, hard to tell.

                            I also seem to remember reading somewhere that she is a former porn star, so that makes it even more likely.

                              No, she's jacked - but! She's also tiny, narrow, wee. If you put Zuzana in regular clothes and stood her next to me, she would look eensy. I want to be eensy! Slender, ripped, fake boobs or not. What I DON'T want to be is what I see on a lot of the CrossFit videos, or what I see when I look in the mirror - a muscular chick that ISN'T ripped to shreds.

                              What I meant was, a lot of the bodies that are sometimes criticized on this board as being too skinny or too lean (or too fake boobs) are right up my alley.

                              I participate in another forum and we have this loooooong standing tradition of a "Confessions" thread - where you can say anything at all - and I thought I'd try to get it going here but... now it's turned into another Are Zuzana's Boobs Fake Or Not discussion. (For the record: they obviously are! And I think they look awesome.)
