Dying To Be Anorexic is a wonderful, somewhat motivating, documentary about the pro ana-movement ().
In the video we see two girls who are pro ana and gets themselves on a strict somewhat anorexic diet.

 

I personally find Lovinia, the one girl (or rather woman) as some kind of reverse thinspo, and I like seeing this documentary, because it simply motivates me into losing more weight- needing to have a lower BMI than Lovinia since her body doesn't look good to me.

 

That sounds terrible, haha. But yeah, sorry Lovinia.

 

Anyone who has any other thoughts on the documentary?

Just watched it, and Lovinia looked tall so at 8.2 her BMi must have been very low.

lavinia was annoying she give up too easy. she's bound to just stay fat. I don't want to be like her. this was an awesome documentary. I feel renewed and more determined than ever. I take seroquel and it's done awful things to my appetite. now even though my knees hurt from arthritis I'm going to get back on the bicycle.

I fin her obnoxious as well, but I feel with her when it comes to her breasts. I once held a knife to mine. Luckily a few years later I was able to get a reduction and now I like them

I would enjoy punching Lavinia in the face, honestly. She makes a mockery of the illness in my opinion. I love that documentary, but I reallllllly dislike her.

Watched this today at the gym after reading your recommendation. Lavinia was semi-annoying, but I definitely could relate to her on some levels. It was crazy to see her at the end and hear her talk about how she saw no difference, when I at least could see a huge difference in her stomach and hips. Really got me thinking about my own distorted body image. I mostly enjoyed this doc because it didn't have some big, fake happy ending. Most docs like this end with them going into recovery and fixing their issues over night like magic. Them refusing help is a lot more realistic. 


If the world's at large, why should I remain?

Oh god, yes, she annoys the hell out of me. There's just something about her voice and the way she says everything that makes me hate her. She lost a whole lot of weight on the upper half of her body, but not her thighs and stuff, and I like to tell myself that it's because she didn't exercise - that's how I make myself want to exercise, tbh, haha

Yeah, but that really brings me down cause I have the same sort of body type as her though not as extreme (thank god). So I get really worried that I will end up like her, still looking heavy on the hips and ass when my BMI drops really low. :(
