I'm really getting sick of girls who are a little heavier feeling the need to put down anyone who's thinner. They say things like, "At least I'm healthy!", "Skinny girls are bitches!", "They look like sticks!" etc.

I'm a 5'1", 17-year-old girl who weighs about 112 pounds. I didn't weigh 100 pounds until I was 14. The ideal (societal standard) weight for a girl of my height is 95-100 pounds. But as you grow up, you have to gain weight. I look thin enough right now and if I weighed 100 pounds, or even lost 5 inches from my waist, I'd look like a skeleton. That's just how I am. Some people are made that way. My sister is the same height as me, but she's 20 pounds heavier. That's because we have completely different body shapes. And I like to weigh a little more. I like to be able to think, "I don't look like much but I weigh 112 pounds :)"
I checked my weight last night and I still don't know how I can weigh that little. I expected to weigh 120 pounds since I've been eating a lot of chips and Almond Joys for a few days. That girl who eats like a cow but stays skinny? That's me. Since I have a fast metabolism, eating junk food and candy doesn't make me much heavier. If eat healthier after that, my stomach can be flatter and I can lose a few pounds but that's it.
The average size of jeans for girls is 8. I'm a size 2. Imagine that, being six sizes below average. But the cut of jeans varies depending on the brand, so in most jeans I'm a size 2, but in some I'm a 0, 1, 3, or 4. Even then, sizes 3-4 feel loose on me. I'm wearing a size 5 shorts right now that are way too loose on me.

I naturally look thin. Some people naturally look a little heavier. One of my friends does and she's one of the most beautiful girls I've ever seen. Sometimes they just are that way, sometimes they come from poor families who can only afford McDonald's and unhealthy food, or sometimes they just eat too much. But when heavier girls say things like, "At least I'm healthy!", "Skinny girls are bitches!", "They look like sticks!" etc., they aren't really taking pride in their weight. They just feel so insecure they feel the need to put down anyone who they think looks better. I'm thin, but I have a healthy weight of 112 pounds for 5'1". I don't look like a stick just because I'm thin. I'm shapely, I don't look like a skeleton. I'm not a bitch just because I'm thin. I could go on and on. I'm a thin, healthy girl who has done nothing wrong to anyone who's heavier than me, so I don't deserve to be flamed, and neither do any of the other "skinny girls."

:roll:

Btw to my watchers: I will post more art, I promise! Schoolwork has just been very demanding :steaming: My Craptop constantly crashes now and won't respond or load anything, so I absolutely can't use it anymore. I have a few photos that I'll send to my Sta.sh email and go from there. Then I'll try to find some time for my drawings and stories :)

I'm a dreamer and an artist just like all of you . . .
:iconroselb-5::iconroselb-5::iconroselb-1::iconroselb-2::iconroselb-3::iconroselb-4::iconroselb-5:

I have been drawing since I was six years old. I didn't think much of my drawings, but my classmates were stunned by them. I drew a pair of pink Converse sneakers when I was nine years old, and my mom was so amazed she got me to sign it and made copies of it to everyone she knew. Then she consigned me to a ton of art courses in drawing, painting, and a little of ceramics at Attleboro Art Museum in Rhode Island.
Art is a natural talent and a gift. Sports have different seasons, school ends eventually, but art stays with you forever.
To me, music and art are the most beautiful and compelling forms of self-expression and catharsis. Art is the breath of life in me; it is my passion, my joy, and my sanctuary. I draw and write whenever I feel the pull - I have much more time in the summer, but despite school, workload, and stress, I draw and write in between. I also sometimes devote half a night or a whole night to staying up to draw or write.

I mostly do photography, anime art, fan art, realistic drawings, and literature. I have over 400 art pieces, I am the founder of Ran-maoFC and I update my journal entry every few days to weekly :)
