Yeah, but at least he's getting motivated to go on a diet. That's step one. I congratulate you, OP, you're making a decision that will help you for the rest o your life :)

Awe OP, your probably beautiful just the way you are..yeah maybe some shallow guys wont like you cause your body is not "perfect" in their eyes, but one day you find a guy that loves you just the way you are. Dont change for anybody but yourself

Ah, I'm sad that girls still want to be extremely skinny when healthy always looks better anyways..

Being a chubster when I was in middle school and early high school, I can relate but I just decided to start eating better and getting out more.

Victoria's Secret models- perfect example of healthy.

#47, I am sorry but V.S. models are not healthy unless it is healthy to not know the long term effects of newly designed beauty treatments, botox for example was once all the rage until discovered it's really unhealthy, and pump them into their skin. Also only one I have seen to date looks healthy, the Brazilian one with the boobs. If you're in H.S. i guess they look healthy, and that is why they are not considered real women.

#33, people may thumb you down but I did that irl. When I started falling off my diet after losing 108 lbs and gaining back fifteen I felt really bad, like horrible. My mom sent me a pic of old me from a few years ago to make me feel better. I have lost weight since.

OP, we all do that.... oh wait no just you sorry. I have a genetic disorder that makes me gain weight and I did it, no surgery no diet pills. You wanna know the real trick pm me, I don't want to post up here with the hateraters. BTW, my wish is to be as thin as them too, one of my absolute biggest wishes. Then I realizes wishes are just that, wishes. I will never have small enough bones to look like them, and it's kinda hard to lose bone weight, so I deal. You'll have to too. Find a more realistic standard. I got a friend who happened to be model thin, but we went to see a physical trainer and I was told I could diet and exercise as long and hard as I wanted but it wasn't gonna happen. Surrounding yourself with people you want to emulate I found to be key.

Oh and for everyone that said men don't like the model thin type, my model thin friend I mentioned earlier is vastly more popular with men than any other woman I know including myself. They don't just like it, for most (not all) of them it's their wish to have a girl like that, or movie stars would still look like Monroe.

Hmm...maybe she's just more popular with the guys because she has a better personality? Unless she literally goes out in a fat suit and all of a sudden all the guys flee you can't attribute her attractiveness on her waistline alone.

I fully agree with acknowledging your biological limits, yet not using it as an excuse to not work hard to be healthy. But a skinny supermodel should never be anyone's inspiration. For all we know OP is actually quite healthy now and is staring at images of women with their skin taut over their ribcage.

There seems to be a correlation between women who are above average weight and skewed beliefs on what a healthy weight is.

Please end the obnoxious ramblings on those who maintain their weight and clarify to us what you deem to be a healthy weight.

Not a fan of the skinny bashing when it's so predictable who's playing doctor.


i agree... i dated a larger girl, who was absolutely beautiful, and healthy. she was nowhere near being overweight or underweight. she must be bulimic or anorexic, since she is so skinny now, and she looks terrible.

That's just going to make you depressed. I'm not saying you can't lose the weight, but staring at those photoshopped pictures is just going to make you more willing to reach for the ice cream. Or the Cheetos. Ugh, that's a lovely combination, isn't it?

You do know the photos were already Photoshopped, right? Pictures of models are never left as they are. Please don't hold yourself to an impossible standard. Focus on your health and not your weight.


Yeah seriously nobody expects you to look like a fake, over edited super model. Stop dreaming about getting fit and do it. The lack of will power in people these days is sad.
