I'm 5'5 150 pounds, used to be 130 but college life set in. Normally I'd be okay with this, but I keep getting comments on being fat. :( I don't think I am really, although I'd like to be toned more. Any words of advice for me and other college girls out there with a similar problem?
This question is very open to any readers out there wanting to add more in.
What do we have to say? We say no matter what, you’re gorgeous. Others will say and think that no matter what size you are and how much you weigh, that is just the cruelty of people. Make yourself happy, not other people. You matter.
What is it with weight? It’s literally everywhere.
I don’t understand. Surely our objective should be to be healthy. If you’re healthy - meaning you don’t binge on unhealthy foods, you don’t starve yourself or make yourself throw up and you exercise regularly - then your body will obviously be a healthy weight and a healthy shape. Some people can do all those things, be completely healthy and still be a size 6. They just have a small frame and a high metabolism. Others yet can exercise lots and eat really well, and simply be a natural size 14. That doesn’t make them unattractive.
I firmly believe that if you’re healthy, you will look your best. Because it means that whatever weight or shape you are, it’s the natural state your body should be in. It’s the curves that make your movements sexy. You don’t want to be bony because that’s just not the way true beauty is perceived.
This image isn’t sexy. It just isn’t. It looks unhealthy, unnatural. You could break her like a twig, because she is merely a misshapen echo of her true beauty. You can see her can’t you? You can see the way she could be, sitting on her bed looking gorgeous, with a full figure you long to hold. She looks at a picture of Marilyn Monroe, the gorgeous woman whose beauty she is trying to reflect, not realising that it’s in her kitchen.
Be healthy. Be happy. And be content with who you’re faced with in the mirror, because this is you at your very best, with life bursting from your body, a cage no more.
We can agree with so much of this, it isn’t about what you weigh or your jean size. It’s that you’re healthy and happy.
Soo, I'm almost 15.
I wear a size 38G bra.
And my hips are really big.
If it weren't for my hips, I'd feel skinny.
I don't think I'm fat.
Or, I didn't until I started getting teased for being overweight...AGAIN!
I guess what I really am asking for is comfort and advice..[:
Oh, darling, I’m sure you look just lovely. I know it can be so awkward having hips so early, but they’re there for a reason. Wide hips rock! They’re a sign of fertility, they add to your hourglass figure that you’re growing into. You’re not fat at all, you’re maturing and your body is growing. It may be awkward now and kids are going to be cruel as hell, but you’re gorgeous and you can rock the fact that you have a shapely body before most. I have a feeling most that are teasing you are simply jealous.
