    I was reading Hyperbole and a Half for the umpteenth time while waiting for the author to update, and I realized something. Allie Broche, extremely clever and funny woman, is also really nice thinspiration. Interestingly, I'm sure none of the SG haters would say she looks unhealthy, even though they were ranting about tiny arms and protruding bones as sure signs of an ED.

    Who are some women who are thinspiring for you, but aren't traditional thinspiration? I'm also a fan of Natalie Portman, and I don't see her being used in the same way as models, though she is pretty small.

    Do you have more pictures of Allie Broche? It's hard for me to have a good look at her body with only this picture, and I would like to see more.

    I also like Natalie Portman. To me she looks so tiny and fragile, although she's not really skinny, just slim IMO. I loved her in Black Swan, she looked great there. I never really understood why she and Mila Kunis complained so much about there skinny frames in that film and how happy they were when they gained weight again. I think they looked wonderful, better than how they look now.

    OK not gonna lie, I'm not really interested in her in the thinspo sense, but just wanted to thank you for sharing this for the fact that somehow I'd never been on her blog before (I'm sure I've seen bits of her posts around tumblr plenty though) and it's GREAT! And her last post I find so relatable to my issues earlier this year which have been creeping back on and off very recently. It's always good to see someone else who 'gets' it. So er yeah, thank you haha :kiss:

    @Arabella, she's pretty private, so it's tough to find good pictures of her.

    This is one of her in track.

    This is Allie and her boyfriend.

    Her top half seems quite small, her thighs are more muscular than I'd like. She's more fit than skinny, but I'd say she's still pretty small.

    Natalie Portman is one of those slender girls no one criticizes as well. I don't feel like she ever struggles with her weight, I think she just lives her life healthily.
    @Rose125, I'm so glad you enjoyed it! I hope you look through her other blog posts. Her description of depression is wonderful and very relatable, but she can also be quite funny.

    I put her in my unconventional thinspo category because she's inspiring to me for more than her body, if that makes sense. She's a physics major in great shape who also happens to have a wonderful sense of humor, so she's the kind of person I can hold up and say to haters, "Look! A thin girl who you can't bash on!"

    Girls, I just wanted to bump this thread because she just updated and there is a new post. Allie had stopped updating her blog because she was depressed (still kind of is but getting better ) and I really love the way she described her depression in this new post. Check it out, for everyone here who has dealt with /deals with depression or any form or related sentiment, I believe it is a good read (and funny too!) ;)

    That depression post was one of the funniest and most well-articulated descriptions I've ever read. After first reading it about a month ago, I started following her religiously. She's hilarious!!
