stop telling girls with thick thighs that they shouldn’t wear light wash jeans because they’re “unflattering.” stop telling short girls that they shouldn’t wear high-waisted jeans because they make them look shorter. stop telling girls with big thighs to stay away from baggy clothes and boyfriend jeans. stop telling petite girls they can’t wear capris. stop telling tall girls to avoid wearing heels so they won’t “intimidate” people. stop telling skinny girls to only wear tops that give them the illusion of having hips. stop telling girls with big boobs to avoid shirts and dresses without a waist. stop telling chubby girls to stay away from patterns and horizontal stripes. stop telling girls with cellulite to wear long shorts. stop telling short girls to wear heels and vertical stripes to make themselves look taller. stop telling pale girls they can’t wear warm colors and stop telling dark girls they can’t wear cool colors. stop telling girls to be ashamed of their body type.
When I see people equate being happy with being thin, I kind of just want to laugh. Because the size of your body does not necessarily determine your happiness or mean you wont be miserable. Thin people can be miserable and insecure and people who are not thin can be happy and actually feel confident. You do not get an automatic boost of confidence just because you have a thin body or a smaller frame You can be thin and still hate yourself If you are actually confident, you would not feel like you need to change yourself
I do not like when girls act like losing weight or being skinny automatically means you are happy and you wear whatever you want ....It does not...I am really skinny. I am insecure about my body. I cannot just wear any outfit I want...even if I am thin.. ..You do not need to be skinny in order to feel better about yourself or wear a certain outfit... Skinny people can be terribly insecure... .and people who are not skinny can be confident.. ..shrinking your body does not automatically grant you self esteem or happiness.... If you weigh more than you would like and are insecure about your body, you will probably still feel that way, even if you do become thinner
Downsides of being skinny. I love wearing bracelets but have a hard time finding ones that fit my wrists...I do not wear rings because I always lose them. If you are really skinny, not everyone finds it attractive...in fact, people can give you rude looks or comments. My parents know I am anorexic, and the fact that I am so skinny, bothers them, so sometimes I even have to change my clothes because they do not want to see how skinny I am. I have a sister who tells me I would look better if I gained weight.. I am afraid to take pictures of myself, because I dont want people telling me I am too skinny...Being skinny also does not mean you feel pretty or you wear whatever you want....It does not always mean you get noticed more....in fact, you can get ignored
Is there any girl out there who is actually happy with their body and their weight? It seems like everywhere I look, girls are always trying to lose weight and be smaller.....Not everyone needs to lose weight. I know america has an obesity problem and lots of people are overweight, but naturally skinny people are not imaginary. There are thin people in the world. I am a size 0. When I see things about dieting and how people are always using pictures to motivate themselves to lose weight, it makes me sad, because its unrealistic. It also triggers my eating disorder...I have a hard enough time eating like a normal person....seeing everyone around me constantly worrying about losing weight doesn't help me
It's just as bad to call people skinny or tell them to eat more as it is to call someone fat. How about we don't say comments about anyone's weight or body type and let people make choices about themselves.
Comparing yourself to another person or a picture is setting yourself up for feeling bad. because you are basically saying you are not good enough as you are, right now....People post thinspiration and all that, and think its motivating them to change....actually what it is doing is destroying any individuality and sense of self worth you have, if your self esteem is already low, complaining that you hate yourself or that you are fat, or wishing you looked like another person or a picture, is automatically going to make you feel like crap.....I wish people could just look at themselves in the mirror and say "I like myself, I look good today, I really like this certain thing about myself" But i understand that is hard to do......
Pictures have so much power and influence over people....it is so tragic-pictures of thin, pretty perfect people can make you hate people you don't even know, and try to copy something you will never be.....everyone deserves to feel beautiful and happy, but why can't they just see it in themselves already, instead of feeling like they have to change themselves?
I am constantly torn between thinking I am too good or not good enough. I have days where I look at myself and think, 'God. you're perfect'. I have days where I look at myself and I want to tear my skin to shreds because all I see is touching thighs big hips stretch marks fat arms. I am in a constant cycle of confusion and hatred because I cannot decide if I am too beautiful, or not beautiful enough
Because I'm skinny, people automatically think I'm healthy. I'm not. I have an overactive metabolism. Among many other symptoms, I have unexplained weight loss. I'm only 92 pounds and I'm still losing weight, despite what I eat. Don't you dare say I'm lucky, because I'm not. I don't even have enough body fat to keep myself warm in 40 degree weather when it's raining even if I'm wearing two shirts, a sweatshirt, leggings, sweatpants, and have a blanket wrapped around me. So don't assume weight is a sign of health, because that isn't necessarily the case.
people are so quick to assume that all fat people hate being fat. and i mean, obviously there are fat people who hate being fat. but nobody ever stops and asks if those people actually hate being fat because of the way their body looks and feels, or if they hate being fat because of how terribly people treat them solely based on the size of their body.
-Most human beings do not naturally have a thigh gap -A thigh gap is not an indication of weight -Thigh gaps are not dependent on weight; they are dependent on how wide your hips are -Ribs and hipbones are not meant to be visible in a female human being who is at a healthy weight -Collarbones are not meant to jut out -It's normal to have rolls on your stomach when you sit down or bend over -It's normal to have a stomach that curves out -Most girls have stretch marks on their bodies; it comes with growing -Stretch marks are not a sign of being fat, they are a sign of growing -BMI charts are not accurate at all -Six pack abs are not necesserely to be healthy, fit or good looking -Eating whenever you are hungry is perfectly fine -The best way to get a bikini body is by putting a bikini on your body
