    I like to look my best because everywhere I go I am on CCTV.

    There you go. You sharing information about your fetishes is no different, and no one should have a problem with that. I'm not into social networking, but people who are are just having fun sharing their sugarcoated information to the rest of the world. Everyone wants to be loved one way or the other, no? Who could blame them for that? Perhaps someone who is full of hate.

    Right.
    Even though "to be loved" is not always the main motivation behind "sharing information", not always.
    Surely when I shared my "fetishes", I shared that information as an answer to somebody who asked specifically about such information.
    Hate? Lol It's such a strong word for such a petty matter.

    Alright, it is an attempt at connecting to people around you for good or for bad.

    Oh dear, honestly my appearance is everything to me. I even decided not to go to a high school reunion just, because I had a rash and I wanted the people I went to high school with to be like 'whoaa Comeback Girl got hot' (because I lost 50 lbs, they all got fat, I disliked all of them and I wanted them to feel really bad about themselves) and I just couldn't do that if I didn't look 100% perfect.

    Oh well, here are my reasons why I put a lot of effort in my looks:
    1. I don't want to be fat, because I used to be fat, which makes me the perfect person to criticize fat people, and gaining weight again would make me a total hypocrite.
    2. I can wear anything, as long as I weigh 110 lbs.
    3. A beautiful personality can compensate being ugly on the outside. In my case it's the other way round: I know I'm ugly on the inside, so I have to be beautiful on the outside.
    4. I have a very thin face and I had my bangs cut, so my face would look fuller and people would stop complaining about me being too skinny. This worked very well and now I'm even popular on Tinder, which I didn't use to be. Being popular on Tinder is a great ego boost when everything else in life sucks.
    5. Yesterday someone asked me what I want to be remembered for when I'm dead. I'm afraid I had to answer that I didn't give a damn if people thought I was likable, clever or whatsoever, as long as I thought I wasn't ugly or boring. Yes, I am superficial.
    6. I feel terrible whenever I find out someone took a picture of me on which I don't look pretty. It can ruin my week.
    7. I've always looked down upon people who didn't try the best they could to be attractive, even when I was fat.
    8. Did I mention I'm superficial?

    Amazing how different worlds can be. At 110 lbs no one would have called me attractive where I came from--they'd shy away from me, assuming I would have an eating disorder of some sort. For you, 110 lbs is the weight you seem to gain the most attention from..

    Even now, I am at around 125lbs, and people are starting to show subtle signs of worry and encouraging me to eat, and I am a little self conscious of my physique. It's a temporary thing, and I have no intentions of staying at 125.. In last August I aim to address that by attempting to build muscle to gain the 10 lbs back that I desire to have. It's an experiment I'm conducting to see if I must be in the 120 range to be strong or if I can press past that barrier. But people worry none-the-less. I tend to wear baggy clothing which helps hide some of it.

    [*]I've always looked down upon people who didn't try the best they could to be attractive, even when I was fat.
    I think I could be okay with you looking down on me for that.. I still get along with people that really hate how unattractive I make myself out to be.

    I'm tiny, sooooo.... When I was around 125 lbs, people still asked me if I were pregnant. Sure, there are people who try to encourage me to eat more and gain weight again, but I always tell them I'm not underweight as long as I have fat upper arms and my bra size is still 32C. Because you know what? I do have fat on my bones, but at least not as much as they do.

    I joined a gym yesterday because I feel it is time to start taking better care of my body. I want to feel good. I do not do it for others, although I do believe the way you look contributes greatly to the way people perceive and treat you. I do think it is more important to do it for yourself, because that can be a greater driving force to work out/look better, than the desire to impress/please others.

    Depends on the seasons, really.

    In winter it's more about prestige because nothing else will motivate me to get off my backside. The weather is so dreary, I wouldn't care if my health suffered because of it so I rely on the fear of becoming obese to get me through. I'm not very active in winter, I do the bare minimum of 30 minutes/5 days.

    In summer, I'm extremely active because warm weather has an outstanding effect on my mood and lifestyle. At first I start exercising with the intention of living healthy and practising what I preach but then it becomes so much more than that. I start craving the endorphins, appreciating the company of my workout buddies/team members and challenge myself to go further and faster. I find ways to keep active outside of my workouts and consequently I become sanguine and carefree. This cheery outlook and reestablished confidence attracts new and interesting people and it motivates me to keep exercising.
