I mean it has good intentions, but it puts out the implication that you have to be beautiful to be a valuable person/valued as a person, which is just untrue.
THANK YOU.

First off I just want to say 115 lbs at 5'2" sounds fine to me
im a short 5' @115lbs...but honestly we are all our own worst critics.
im actually working on toning my legs through cycling....and I may not be body appropriate for certain cosplays remember its for fun...work on being healthy and proud of your body...try not to focus on the other girl....i have been stuck in that rut many times and its hard to get out of.

I have freaking love handles I can not get rid of!

If you would like skinner thighs/ legs, why not invest in some dance tights?

Just going to point out this is a cosplay forum, where women often do try to look like prepubescent boys.
Since we're off topic anyway.

Going back on topic....

Crunches, planks, lunges and squats. I hate them all but damn does this combo work, especially if you mix some cardio in. I did a 30 day challenge using all of these minus lunges and I saw a massive improvement.

That being said, some people will NEVER have a space between their thighs. I am one of those people, even when I was running close to 10 miles a day for cross country, my thighs still touched. What you can hope for is a muscular, healthy physique. BE HEALTHY, that should be a goal as well. Don't base your worth on your looks.

Here is the squat, plank, crunch craziness I made up. I did 30-45 minutes of cardio three times a week while I was doing this.

Good Luck!

I think what he meant from Blindjustice (abeit an uninformed way of saying it) is that form is important in doing leg workouts. It's more effective to perform squats and such with as much range of motion than doing a partial motion to get extra reps. More range of motion means more muscle fibers being activated to do the movement.

This means that proper squat form is at least going down with thighs going parallel with the floor so that you get some hamstring activity to help drive back up to normal position. You can go below parallel in which your butt is almost touching the back heel but not necessary in most cases.

Just like when you starve or fast, notice your body loses weight as a whole not just your arms or legs.

Now I can't fit into any of my shorts and now cosplay.. And I just don't feel pretty .. The fact that I can rarely get good pictures and that I have social anxiety doesn't help either.
I am actually taking a break from cosplay until December 7th to get in shape.. So I will be eye balling this thread as well.. :/
I used to think like that all thru freshman year. But then my friends cosplayed even though they were skinny/fat/black/white/gay/straight.
