As of 11:41 this morning, HAPPY AUTUMN EVERYONE!!!!
Seriously, this is my favorite season of the year.
And to start it off right, I'm down 2 lbs today! Woot! I guess now that the sickness is wearing off, my body's metabolism is back into gear. I'm back to the weight I was when we concluded principal photography for my last film, for which I am making a promotional appearance on October 1st, so.... I still have 9 days to lose even more! (Still have 5 lbs to go to achieve my LW during filming...)
And overnight there's been LOTS of BRILLIANT comments! Woot! (I LOVE comments.) So here I'm going to take some time to respond to some... keep 'em coming, girlies. Ana luvs you. **MWAH!**

(L and Anonymous are referring to the "fat whore" for whom my boyfriend left me, and who attended my "surprise" party without him last Thursday. Click here for that post.) Well, technically we're still "friends" and we have many mutual friends who were also at the party. In this business, you try never to burn bridges with anyone. Most actresses will tell you, "We never catfight!" and it's true. But that doesn't mean they don't keep their claws sharpened and ready for action behind that Cheshire smile. "Fat whore" and I were quite cordial that night. When I hugged her I felt her back fat, and I hope she noticed my shoulder blades. ::smirk::
hana has some questions about fasting.
Quite honestly, love, it's different for everyone. Everyone's body is different, chemistry is different, lifestyles are different, and so being... everyone will respond differently to fasting/restricting. Sometimes fasting has worked quite well for me. Other times in my life, restricting has worked better.
You just have to experiment with different things/styles of fasting/restricting to find out what works best for your own body to achieve your own goals. If I want to lose one pound by the end of the week, I can lightly restrict and exercise moderately and get the job done. But if I want to lose four... well, that's a different story.
I'm here to support you and encourage you, no matter what you choose. All I ask is a little encouragment in return. (Keep writing those comments.) ;)
Anonymous writes about helping to rescue her sister from anorexia, and recognizing her symptoms in the things we (myself and the commenters) have written here.
Thanks for commenting, girl. I agree with you. No one said this lifestyle/disease was pleasant or easy, on those of us who do it, or on those who love us best. I've published your comment (perhaps to your surprise) because I hope it will encourage someone to take heed and get out before they get too deep. As for me, I still "find happiness in avoiding food."
That's it for now, chickiboos. Meantime, I've added my slideshows to the names of some of the skinny actresses in the blog post below, so breeze thru it again and click on the links for some thinspiration.
