An answerer told me this : “same! and heavy people look at melike im anerexic and they hate ALL skinny people. i’m 5’2 and 100 pounds. im not anerexic people. and one store i forget who but all the size 00 to 2’s have a warning label about how dangerous eating disorders are. ” I think a size…
you rock girl! seriously! im tellin you, we should have a major Y!A protest agianst this! woohoo!
i agrre 100%
im 5’1 and 85 lbs. and i hate being called anerexia wen i accually eat healthy(and sometimes likea pig oinkoink)
hey! wat brand said the ‘eating disorder’ thing oon the lable? i want to know! (gossip is gooood)
I think “womens’ sizes” in America are more like plus sizes. When I go shopping, and I am an American “Misses” size 6 or 8 or sometimes even a 10, I will see clothes up to a 14 or a 16 on the racks. I think anything that is not relatively thin is a “plus” size. I agree that there should be more healthy looking models. It is fun to see the tall, tall women to see how the clothing drapes nicely on them, but that is not what most women in the world actually look like. I would like to see some older women in fashion magazines too.
I think it goes both ways. I don’t like it when either ‘fat’ or ‘skinny’ people have to bash the other side or brag about how good they feel about themselves.
Im 85 pounds and wear a size 00, and I am HEALTHY at this weight. I have friends who wear plus sizes and are HEALTHY. We should be more concerned about our health right now what with so many people struggling with eating disorders and/or obesity.
Ridiculous. While anorexics are universally bashed, the problem with America is that there are WAY too many fat people now, so what was (and still should be) considered as normal, is now no longer the norm.
Obesity is a disease that nobody wants to do anything about, and people who are fat (and I have many friends and family members who are) would rather complain about how skinny healthy people are (while at the same time won’t eat healthy, won’t eat smaller portions and DEFINITELY won’t exercise).
While there are some oversized people who have troubles losing weight, they typically use it as a crutch. I know people who have lost 400 lbs just by learning to diet healthily and do an exercise regimen.
Most overweight people CAN lose the weight. They just convince themselves that they can’t, and blame it all on their genes.
Cop-out usually. Yeah, you might have more trouble losing weight than other people, but that’s not an excuse to give up. When you give up, it’s no longer your genes fault.
There’s a reason why obesity is a problem in modern life when it wasn’t before… People used to be more active.
I’m 4’11 and i weigh 85 lbs & i’m 14. Yeah I know i’m short. I get that all the time. I eat so much.
[i just ate 3 sloppy joes].
Yet people call me anoerexic and accuse me of taking diet pills.
And it is VERY weird why they put eating disorders on that and not on plus sizes for obesity.
Plus if the obesity had a disorder too wouldn’t they also be a size 6 at least after a long period of time?
i totally know what u mean!!!i eat all around me and i dont put on weight at all.i constantly get horrible comments and its really hurtful.i dont like wearing skirt,bikinis or anyhing thats revealing cos of people being so mean 2 me.i want to put on weight!i want curvy hips and a big *** i love it.i actually have no ***!?i rarely find clothes that fit properly and its just so annoying`.i also look younger 4 my age and so many people feel the need 2 tell me this could you not just keep your stupid comments 2 yourself?i also joined the part time army(reserves).all the men in there will not let me do anything!!!!i think they think i might break in half or something.i am fairly strong like but they are constantly doing things 4 me so im never going 2 learn!i dot wana be skinny and i hate people that think i do it on purpose.i eat more than a grown man !!!!!
Yes, I know what you mean. I’m the same way; no matter how much I eat, I never gain any weight. I’m 5’2″ and about 85 pounds. It just runs in my family, really. And all my friends are like “OMG! You are so skinny, I hate you!”
It’s wrong to make fun of ANYONE because of the size they are. People don’t realize that these comments are more hurtful than they seem.
I think we should all be more considerate of each other: you sound like you don’t know what it would be like to be obese given how thin you are, so maybe you shouldn’t be one to judge. Same for anyone bigger who assumes thinner girls are anorexic.
Some of us are naturally thin, I can say that I’m not even 5’1 and 97 lbs but I love food and eat as much as i can. Given that I have a fast metabolism (some families are genetically bigger by the way) I barely gain any weight even if I overeat.
As for putting warning labels on clothes, that’s ridiculous. What if some girl saw how good someone looked when they were that small and wanted to try starving herself?
This is so controversial.
Well I think that people just assume that if you’re really skinny or “look anorexic” that it’s very easy for you to just eat more if you want to look different. But people who are obese seem to have alot harder time eating less, exercising more, etc to lose weight to look different. But since I know both kinds of people, I know that it is very hard for some people to gain weight ( if they even want to anyways) and it is very difficult for some people to lose weight ( if they even want to anyways) SO, Just like you said a size 00 needs a warning label is ridiculous ( which I agree), it’s also ridiculous to put a warning label on size 13 and above like you suggested because your pants size is just not a clear indication of your health, it just seems to be an indicator to society on whats acceptable and what isn’t and it’s just wrong.
i dont even think its fair how they’re doin that just because most of the skinny models were anorexic, now they think if your skinny your also anorexic!! its stupid. and there are a lot of skinny people out there who are naturally skinny. i eat a lot of junk food and stuff [probably like 5000 calories too, lol] but im 85 pounds [4’11] and i HATE it!! im even trying to gain weight but it never works =\
and yeah your completely right, if they say mean stuff about being too skinny then they should say that obesity is bad too!!
I think that we should just respect each other’s diets! Skinny people make fun of fat people, but fat people make fun of skinny people. I think obesity is considered an eating disorder along with bulemia and annorexia. None are healthy. Don’t try to gain weight, just eat regularly and workout (to stay healthy, you’d rather have that 100 pounds to be muscle rather than fat right). I think that stereotyping is mean, I have a friend who eats more than I do and they call her “shelblemic” (her name is shelby). That’s really impolite and unclassy! Regardless of all this just focus on your diet and your health!
