Who has your ideal bod?

You know how it is, you either see some hunk or femme fatale on screen with a crazy delicious bod and you think, ''That meat-suit would look good on me.''

Whether it's losing weight or buffing up, do you have a celebrity type that you base your ideal body figure on or look to for inspiration? Brad Pitt from Fight Club? Gerard from 300?

Interesting posts to read through! Over the years, (I'm 50) there have been so many times when I compared myself to other women and felt bad about my thighs not being skinny enough, legs not being longer, breasts not being larger etc. When in actuality I looked great - fortunately I know this now. I have pictures that prove it! Photos and age give one much better perspective. What I didn't have then was the ability to accept my body for all it's beauty, strength and resiliency. Such a waste! My thighs may look more like pine tree trunks than willow trees, but as one brilliant and wonderful man I knew years ago said to me "You wouldn't be able to ski the way you do if you didn't have those strong, muscular legs." My body (and those legs) have been there for heli skiing, a few marathons, tri-athlons, the birth of two children and most recently through my battle with cancer and subsequent lymphodema. What I now know is that my ideal body is the one I have. I will continue to shape it, test it and do my best to keep it healthy but primarily I am going to appreciate it!

This guy - Arnel Ricafranca (if that IS is real name, haha). He has his own website claiming to get you six pack abs, its mostly just circuit-training workouts and tons of ab routines. I doubt he used this routine to get his body anyway. If that kind of body is actually attainable without steroids, I'd love to look like it!

I'm 5 ft 4, busty, and have the shoulders to hold 'em up. Most of that isn't about to change. So, "willowy" is out of the question for me, but every time I see Drew Barrymore on screen, she always manages to look effortlessly good.

Gosh - I really like my body except for my abs - can anyone who has given birth 4 times (14.8 lbs twins included) really have flat abs again? If so, I'm listening... If I have to say someone I guess Halle Berry...

I don't necessarily need six pack abs...I'd love to just have a flat stomach. It's been about ten years since I had that.

This morning I was looking in the mirror after the shower and my stomach is way down. Shirts that were ready to pop buttons two weeks ago fit perfectly, actually a little loose, now. :)

You know, this is thread exemplifies the main reason people suffer inside their physical form. '..ideal bod..'??? The very idea of an 'ideal bod' underpins our dissatisfaction of every element of our physical presentation, and is the key factor in the disintegration of our young people who, in earlier generations, had a raft of other attributes to build self esteem upon. They did not have to rely upon an 'ideal bod' for their day-to-day ability to cope.

I got interested in the 4 Hour concept after breast cancer f#@@!d me over through 6 months of chemotherapy, five major surgeries and 10kg of weight gain. 'Ideal bod'??; you would have to be joking. I thought this site was all about health and fitness and supporting each other. I wonder how the morbidly obese members feel about this pointless, shallow and damaging thread. It's confronting enough for me and my 10 kilos.

  • karatetigy commented Sep 5th 2011:

    Yes, I see where you're coming from, but there's a difference between having depressing envy for someone else's features or life and looking up to someone as inspiration or a role model for fitness. I agree with you that with young people there is not enough encouragement to look at themselves seriously and see their beauty over "flaws", but when it comes to being overweight or obese, I think it really helps to have a goal of where you want to end. A lot of these thread replies also seem conscious of their limitations like they won't be as tall as their role model or not, but they don't sound upset about it; they're still driven to earn a similar body. (hang on, I ran out of letters...)

  • karatetigy commented Sep 5th 2011:

    My ideal body has nothing to do with any air brushed pin up, but the athletic Cirque du Soleil performers. To me, they represent an epitome of fitness and health with limitless strength, discipline, and often flexibility. It's never shallow to be inspired by someone, especially if it's pushing you to better yourself. And let's be honest-- we're all here solely to better ourselves. Health is great, and you don't have to want healthy body for appearance, but I don't think it's fair to criticize the people here (like me) who are seeking both health and improved appearance.

    I wish you the best here and sincerely applaud your victory over cancer. That alone is inspiring to work hard :)

I'd go with Ryan Reynolds circa Blade 3 (not to ignore the incredible Jessica Alba from that movie as an amazing female ideal), or maybe a bigger look with George St. Pierre. While I'm currently 6'2", 210 at 18%BF, I think I'd love to just see what I'd look like at around 205lbs and 10%BF.

I have 2 options in mind first, is a person who I admire the most and who's programs of NLP helped me to get rid of a LOT of insecurities and to make my mind stronger to achieve my goals, Eric Von Sydow (aka Hypnotica)

VR5K4189color.jpg

He was also incredibly fat, insecure and a complete loser until he got tired and decided to change his life, to obliterate the fear of what other people thought of him he used a ballet dress and strapped a dildo in his forehead and went out in the streets of San Francisco like that for 3 weeks, he has helped a lot of people in the world to change their mindset and achieve their goals.

And the second option, would be a most famous one:

So those ones would be my 2 options, there's a long way for me to get there but

Olga Kotelko. She's not a celebrity in the Hollywood sense but she's famous in her way. She's a 92 year old track and field star who holds every freaking record for her age group and can probably whip my butt too ;3

I'm recovering from injuries as a result of a car accident. I want my pre-accident body back.

I want a body that doesn't hurt when I move. I want a body that is fast, strong and flexible. I want a body that thrives on challenges and defies doubt. I want a body that allows me to do all the things I love to do and do it with style >=-(

In other words, I want LauraCox's body >:-(
