    Who does it matter? I cba to quote what you said to that other girl (it was a bit rude btw!), but how is her weight or her boyfriends preferences affecting your life? That's right, it's not. So why do you care so much? :s

    The only objection I have is fat people using the word 'curvy' as you can be slim and curvy. The model in the OP isn't huge, but she's certainly a bit chunky, and I wouldn't call her 'curvy'.

    If she was curvy, she wouldn't have wobbles of fat where a waist should be.
    I mean people can look the way they prefer, but it really annoys me when people say "that's what a real woman looks like". So anyone who isn't fat/chubby, isn't real?
    "Seen many girls do damage to themselves because they want to be thin". Fine, but anorexia is still a marginal problem compared to obesity. And there is nothing unhealthy about a young girl wanting to be slimmer than she is.

    I think it's just the way she's sitting. If she was standing, or sitting up straight, she wouldn't look fat.

    3 is in shape. You only need a very small amount of body fat (~14%) to be healthy. Look at the Pussycat Dolls. They are like that bit extremely healthy.

    Sorry, but 3 is not 14% body fat and neither are the pussycat dolls/VS models. 14% body fat (for a woman) is more akin to your example of 'muscular'. It's extremely lean and defined.

    This is also 14% body fat:

    That's really gross! :eek:

    I'm sure most guys would prefer Kailee O'Sullivan (model in the OP) to female body builders. They have almost no boobs! :s

    And sorry but you're not eating extremely healthily if you're overweight
    Do you know that there are diseases that make people overweight? I have known few persons who used to be chubby and they thought that it was their fault (one reason is that people like you complain that fat people are lazy and they eat unhealthily). One had hypothyroidism and other girl's pcos caused hyperinsulinemia. I'm not saying that every fat person has a disease behind their fatness but some do! And many of them live with them for many years before realising that something is wrong. Some people never know because they think it's normal to gain weight really easily.

    But about the girl in the picture, I don't think that she is curvy. She is really chubby. If someone is curvy, she has wide hips, big boobs and small waist. I hate it too how people say that fat or curvy (now I don't mean that they are the same thing) women are real women. So if you don't have bigger cup size than D, you are not a real woman? So I'm not a real woman even though I have nice curvy ass and hips but I don't have enormous boobs? But yeah, I think that "real woman" could lose 15-20 pounds. It really makes a difference in appearance and in her health. She has a pretty face so I believe she would be gorgeous.

    oh please, thyroid problems are not common at all. Amusing the way every fat person likes to blame thyroid instability.

    2% of the population, now we have little idea whether all these people are fat or not as last I checked having thyroid problems did not automatically make you fat. Yes, that is indeed rare last time I checked.

    No it doesn't automatically make you fat obviously. I am not saying all fat people have it, but quite a few will.

    You are in a world of denial. Seriously. You apparently do not share the same natural impulses as the rest of the ****ing human race.
    Your boyfriend is going against ALL his natural impulses to be with a fatty. Clearly he is knowingly lowering his expectations of what he finds to be physically attractive to be with you, which is most likely due to him being out of shape/not physically attractive.
    A good guy can be good looking as well. Stop making the strawman that good guys can't be good looking, or insinuating it.

    Jimbo was just being honest, something you are not even with yourself. So how about you grow a spine, don't join the ranks of the overweight depressed women of the UK, and sort your **** out yeah? Or that too much hard work and you'd rather ignore it and watch Hollyoaks instead while living a bland existence, hit 35 and realise you've wasted your life so far, and see it isn't going anywhere? Because if you don't start sorting yourself out, that's where you will go. So good luck in making the right decision.
    Because being large is going to ruin my whole life, obviously.

    There's no need to be so bloody rude, alright? Calm the hell down.

    So I wouldn't want to be on the arm of a celebrity, so what? That doesn't rock my boat, so now I'm a freak? I'm sorry that I don't conform to your narrow version of humanity. Just because I'd rather stay out of Hollywood doesn't make me a freak.

    I never said that good guys can't be good looking. Not once have I said or insinuated that, so get your facts right before you come on the internet and deal out a load of crap. My point is that ugly people, fat people, any people can be good people, and that matters more than size IMO.

    I am honest with myself, I know that I'm fat. But the thing you people can't seem to understand is that it isn't my main priority to be thin, I'm sorry if that's not okay with you, but it's not, alright?

    Passing my exams, learning to drive, saving for uni, getting to work on time, meeting with my friends, going out with my boyfriend, THESE are more important things than being thin.

    Don't you come on here an assume that I'm a **** up because I'm fat. I've dealt with it, so get the **** over it.

    Good luck in becoming a nice person.

    Didn't you read what I said? I said "I'm not saying that every fat person has a disease behind their fatness but some do!". Even if it's a rare disease, some people have it. It's not the only disease that causes problems with the weight. And that person who has that disease is doing sports as a hobby so that is the reason why he had those tests done. If someone is active and is still overweight, there is something wrong. But if you sit infront of your computer and eat crisps, chocolate and pizza, it's your own fault. I think everyone should do some sports, no matter how skinny or fat they are. So I'm not saying that fat people should just eat unhealthily and not do anything because "well I may have some kind of a disease". But if someone really feels that there is something wrong, then they should get those tests done and check if there is anything wrong. And if you are saying that I'm trying to justify my fatness, you are being wrong. My BMI is normal and I'm trying to live as healthily as I can.

    Yes 2% is not common, add to this the large majority of hyperthyroid sufferers are in their 40s. As said another excuse peddled by the inactive. Its almost intrinsically linked with the aging process and menopause in women. The chances of you being say, a 20 something or a teenager and suffering from an irregular thyroid are extremely rare.

    Yes they can and there is the appropriate medication for aiding the T4 to T3 conversion process. However people seem too keen on pointing to thyroid instability.

    I was talking about fat people in general, not our age group. If you think 1 in 50 is rare you clearly don't know that many people.
