    Actually, my trousers are so low it doesn't necessarily hang over. In jeans etc it does though.

    Hi.

    Okay, so when I was about 15/16 I was happy with my body. I developed early so my boobs were the same size as they are now, and I had just developed full hips. I didn't have a belly and overall was pleased with my figure. It was then that I got a reputation among my friends for having a good figure.

    I'm 18 now and have gained quite a lot of weight since then. I'm still a size 8, but my general shape has got a lot bigger (most noticably in the belly area.) It's something that I'm paranoid about, but anytime I ask my friends I'm told I'm being ridiculous and that I've always had a good body.

    So, what I want to know is

    A) Would you lie to your friend about their body? (Maybe they need to tone up a little?)
    B) Is having quite a big belly a huge turn off? I am naturally curvy, but it comes with a price!
    C) Is there anyway to tell by myself if I need to lose weight/tone up?

    Ps. In before "Pics or GTFO." I'm anon for a reason.
    It depends on the friend to be honest. I would not lie to them, I would just tell them what I think but not be too harsh. But I think my friends now how they are anyway and none of them ever asked whether they are fat or not, even though we do talk about weight.

    C) How big is your belly? Is it sort of like Katy Perry or bigger? If it is like her, then you have nothing to worry about.

    A good friend does not disrespect you by lying.

    Didn't realise that you posted pics, not particularly fussed as this was more a general question about what a good friend would do, but as an fyi the links don't work.

    Pics (new links)


    I decided to go braless to get a more honest picture of what my body is like... After taking them, I think the main issues are my belly (you can see the overhang) and my arms (they look massive!) How do I make my arms look smaller without them going all muscly?

    It makes me feel bad, but yes I would lie. I could never tell a friend that there fat and what's the point if they already know it and complain about it.

    It's human nature. We all envy other things without realising that we too are the object of the envy of others. If you want chat feel free to message, not going to hit on you.

    :banghead: Your figure is fine, not fat one bit.
    The overhang is called being normal and not a malnourished size 0. Whats wrong with your arms, looks good to me xD?


    If you really want to loose weight, then as I said, make a routine which combines cardio and resistance trainnig and stick too it.
