Skinny Perspective (for girls)
*If I grab my thigh with both hands, I can touch my fingers all the way around, and my thighs still jiggle! Your thighs will never stop jiggling. If your thighs don't jiggle, see a doctor. And every girl hates when she sits down in shorts and her thighs look bigger because they get squished- yeah, that still happens to me too.
*Skinny girls get picked on by the body police just as much as chubby girls.
*Finding clothes that fit snug and look sexy is difficult at a US size 00. And when I do find that perfect little black dress, I have to cover it up with a big sweater because I'm always, always cold.
*(Models) Photographers will always tell you to "suck it in", even at my size. It has nothing to do with the model having a big tummy. It engages core muscles and improves body lines. If your goal is to not have to suck it in to look your best, you will never get there. It always looks better to engage all your muscles!
*Going through puberty or any body changes can make a person feel so awkward and clumsy in their own body. Sometimes people think getting skinny will make them feel more graceful. I still feel like a baby giraffe sometimes with my long limbs!
*Getting skinny to get a guy just doesn't work. A skinny body is not who you are. Neither is a fat body, acne, uneven tits, perfect tits, blonde hair, blue hair, or whatever. You want a guy who loves WHO YOU ARE!
So, when I have girls writing to me saying things like "I want to be skinny like you, I hate how my thighs move!" or "I hate getting picked on about my weight!" or "I want to look perfect in my clothes" or "I want to be a better model" or whatever, I just laugh.
I'm not judging anybody, I'm not preaching, and I'm not trying to tell anybody what to do or what not to do. I just want girls to know that getting as skinny as I am will NOT accomplish these kinds of goals; I'm speaking from experience. The best thing anybody can do to make themselves more attractive is to be as healthy as possible, and have self-confidence!
