Everyboby, mainly gils, say that is fat. The girl can be as thin as possible and she thinks she is fat. Have you ever listen someone saying: "I'm fat"? Of course yes. Please, post your opinion here!

Yes, you are completely right! Almost all the girls use to say they are fat, even if they are as thin as a skinny pencil I think that this is related to culture and society generalized thinking, I mean, all of these girls want to be the same size as the models or they fell that if they are not thin they will be socially rejected.

Nevertheless, for example, the girl in the below image, I do not think she looks nice, she is too thin, and she does not have a good body



I think that we must change this way of think fat girls are pretty too!

I am fat, I am fat, I am fat!

and I am a little bit fat, frankly. but I am not as thin as the girl whose picture Ayita20 just posted above.

I have a dream: to become as skinny as possible. but Bob used to tell me:"if a man likes skinny girls, just let him go. bone is for Dogs, but meat is for human being." so now I am ok with my extra weight. however, since here in the South China, only those small-sized clothes are pretty, because almost all women are thin here, in order to put pretty fashions on, I still need to lose some of my weight. and I did lose some. thank God, now I am in a relatively good shape.

RedRose!

You look beautiful in the picture you have attached! Laughing

I think that you are facing exactly what I explained before... The culture makes people to loose weight just because of fashion or because of almost all the other girls are thin! However, I really like the sentence that Bob told you... I have never listen to it before but I really liked it! And the most important thing is that you are happy as you are! Cool

thanks Ayita20.

I guess you are a girl, right? because very few men would try to lose weight.

Most girls I hear saying "I'm fat" are thin girls! I just can't stand that. Don't they look at themselves in the mirror?

Well Mari, you are right, I already listen a lot of thin girls saying that they are fat. It is a problem because it's the society who makes they feel this way.

We all should be proud about how we are. And nothing or anyone could make we feel bad about our looking.
Every woman is beautiful! Very Happy

Im fat, Im fat, Im fat; but belive me I have the most beautifull legs you could imagine!!!!!
Really, Im fat, but Im too sexy, beautifull, kind, good maner, etc., almost the princes of your dream.
The responsables of Anorexia and Bulimia are the fashion designer who are not enought intelligent to design clothes to fat women.
All the clothes to fat women seams to be the vest of a pillow.
Im fat but I use miniskirt, jeans, beautiful blouses, sexy shoes, etc.
The only problem to a fat people is the healthy, we must to be healty, but if we are fat and healthy what is the problem???.

girls, sometimes they believe they are the most attractive woman in the world when a boy is interested in them, and sometimes they believe they are the most unattractive woman because they are a kilogram heavier or so.

Laughing

this is called fat


and this is not normal, I mean, women want to lose fat to attract boys. And boys, we want to have something to touch in bed. I mean what should a man touch here?

Holy cow! All three of those women make me nauseous. Shocked

Ok, now I'm really starting to wonder. How does every one else get everyone's pictures? I have to guess what everyone looks like. I had NO idea hoshi was a rabbit. Confused

Darn, darn, darn!
