Default You don't have to be skinny to be beautiful!!

I realize that there are natural skinny people. But this is about how the standard is now, you have to be beautiful to fit in and be beautiful.

Rather than looking at mostly the skinny celeberties, if we decide to look up to any celebirty, it should be healthy ones. America Ferrera, Jordin Sparks, Beyonce, Rihanna, Jennifer Hudson, Hayden P, Oprah...are all examples of people who are beautiful. and CURVEY.

We should all love ourselves the way we are. Yes, okay if you are obese, and unhealthy, then its best to be healthy, however, if you are curvey, you should embrace it and love the way you are!

This is really inspiring. You are right. Being skinny does not make you beautiful, makes you look ill in most cases. I would rather have some weight on me than look like a bag of bones

Yes Kerry! And I hope every girl realizes this. I am fine, and I am confident, and I am not skinny. A healthy 135 pounds.

sadly most girls dont realise this or if they do they dont believe it. they think being skinny is everything when it is not. That's why there as so many girls with eating disorders and even boys have them. It's really sad, as weight has nothing to do with how far you will get in life or make some pretty.

Thats a shame that your mom calls you that :(
And yes you are fine the way you are. As long as you are confident, and healthy, then you are fine.
A lot of people look amazing curvey.

Default Re: You don't have to be skinny to be beautiful!!

I used to weigh 157 lbs, my parents used to say that I needed to lose some weight - but mostly tone up some more.

Well, I started taking medication and a side-affect was weight loss... Now they say "You need to eat more, it's bad that I can see your rib cage!"

Now I'm borderlining being in the 110's but I'm 121 lbs right now.

Of course, I did need to lose some weight - and tone up as well.
I just lost too much.

I'm naturally Voluptuous, according to my father when he was explaining different body-types to me one day.
Big breasted, pretty big ass, kinda short, and a whole lotta curves to go around! [[see the joke I made there? Around~]]

People call me anorexic though... Because I lost so much weight so fast and all.
It was such a pain - especially when it's your sister saying it.


Anyway -- I'm Voluptuous and I know I am damn good-lookin'!!
I mean, I have two fabulously good-looking parents -- why would I not be good looking?
And I finally found a guy who accepts that I'm shorter and have more meat on me.
Hell, he loves it actually!
After years of men flocking to my stick of a friend - I've finally found the right guy~
Can't say the same for her... I pity her actually.


Well, I really do need to gain some more weight... My spine sticks out as do my ribs, that's not good.
I also am getting flabby... It doesn't look it, but I am.
So I need to work out as well.









You Got the Motherfucking Right to Remain Violent!
I'll Take 25 Just to Watch Your Life End, I Pray Father Please Forgive Me 'fore I Sin
Oh No Here Comes the Riot - Does Everything Have to Resort to Violence?
I Thought I Told You to Keep Fucking Quiet, Don't Even Try to Take This Weapon From Me
I've Come Undone - My, What Have I Done? Fuck it Let's Kill Everyone

I'm a Take You all Down! Saying Fuck the World Now!
I'm a Take You all Out! Saying Fuck the World Now!

Default Re: You don't have to be skinny to be beautiful!!

I sort of associate the word 'skinny' with leanness. I think someone can be muscular and skinny. I mean, since it's skin, I think its about being more skin than subcutaneous fat.

Words like 'thin' or 'bony' are probably more associated with people who also lack muscular bulk. Honestly, I find that kind of appealing though, they tend to be light and easy to move around, compact and stuff.

One thing about the 'oh you can see their rib cage' test. Even for normal people, if you arch your back a great deal you're able to see your rib cage, it just pokes right out the front. It's probably more about the skin sinking between the ribs where you see the sides of the ribs which means having little muscle/fat to cover it right?

Yeah, most people you can see their rib cage if they stretch even if they are a normal weight ^^








♥. Just another day like any other,
Nothing in the sky said run for cover,
There was no parade,
No lights flashing,
No songs to sing along the way. ♥
