    Yeah I know, as I said: it's a good starting point and check with your doc before losing weight. Specific groups (athletes/body buidlers etc) don't really work well with the BMI measurement as they tend to come in as overweight when they're clearly not, but for most people of average lifestyle it gives a good ballpark figure. I didn't mean to make it sound like it's the be all and end all, so thanks for the clarification if I did- as I said don't wanna encourage anyone to stress too much about their weight.
    I think people should stress about their weight. It annoys me when people (I can only assume overweight, middle aged women) complain about 'stick thin' models in magazines and the media somehow 'tricking' men into finding wonderfully proportioned women attractive, somehow giving girl's poor role models. Not ever girl who sees FHM is going to become anorexic and its probably 1:10,000 the amount of people who die from anorexia to obesity.

    im told i've gota good figure but i'm still not confident with the way i look, i think i'm not the skinniest person in the world and i wouldn't mind losing some weight.
    so im just wondering do guys really care if a girl's got a bit of beef on her?
    Look, most men don't have unrealistic expecttions of women and their figures, believe me, as most women don't about men. Im just a normal man like most others. Don't worry if you're not stick thin as the majority of men don't really go for this, despite what the media may have you believe. Hence, why Christina Hendricks (or whatever her name is) was voted nicest body by men. Curvy women who carry it well are trumpin

    It depends if it interferes with her image. Some people can be heavier and pull it off, others just look fat

    As long as everything is roughly proportional then you can let your true beauty shine out

    Models that do fashion shows which girls look at and want to aspire to are not what guys want. Guys want a girl with personality, not some narrow minded one that has a breakdown everytime they put half on half a pound.

    Again- I said I don't want anyone to stress too much- that's twice you've read what you wanted into what I've said.

    Yes people should have a healthy concern about their body, for health reasons if nothing else, although for me it's also because excess weight affects my sporting performance, and I like to look good. And you are also correct in stating that far more people die from problems related to obesity than eating disorders (Obesity could technically be classed as an eating disorder, but enough semantics). Many women in the public eye ARE too thin however. A healthy body fat % for a woman is around 20-25% (far less for a man so please don't hold both to the same standards), if a woman goes much lower than this then she opens herself up to health problems such as osteoperosis and amenorrhoea. Many women who are considered role models to young girls clearly do not fall in to this healthy body fat %.

    You should get on all fours, with your face towards the floor, with no shirt/top on

    prop yourself up with hands and feet (asif your about to do push ups)

    see how much your gut hangs out, it's a very good indicator as to whether you need to lose weight...



    OP obviously im kidding lol

    girls come in different shapes and sizes, and I swear, I love em all!

    And what you mean by beef. If beef means nice curves ie tits and ass then yah, beef is good. If beef means butter, where you have bingo wings etc. Then no.
    This.

    Seriously how difficult is to tell if you are attractive or not...

    @ op next time you are on the bus or train take a look around at all the married women wearing wedding rings. notice how they look mainly overweight, frumpy, saggy and unattractive with severe facial hair. im talking even about the young ones in their late 20s and early 30s. if they can get married so can you. also walk down the high street any weekend and look at all the fatties age 13 - 20 caked in makeup and miniskirts holding hands with a dude.

    fact is, dudes dont care about looks. if it is willing and not too much hard work, not too skanky yet fairly easy they will f**k it. and if they dont get any other offers, they will f**k it repeatedly until after a couple months when it becomes a relationship. this contines for a few years and it becomes a marriage. the deciding factor is how many other offers the guy gets not how hot you are.

    im a latina size 6 part time model, have modelled for two agencies over the past 10 years, yet im 25 and still virgin and have never had a proper bgf. i am educated and many guys find me attractive but dont want to date me because i dont believe in sex before marriage. they will pursue easier but less hot p*ssy.

    to get more dudes dont bother wirh your weight, just put on the shortest tightest miniskirt you can find, wear a padded bra and tight low cut tops and you will see many guys will approach you and ask you out.

    Why do people still make/read these threads?

    Many men want a girl who is size 8, 5'7 with a 6-pack and a small bum. We know this. Women naturally have more fat than men, so most girls who are of a completely healthy weight don't look like this. Its the men's loss really, for being unrealistic with 90% of females, because how many women want a man who doesn't love them the way they are in the long-term?
    It is however, a woman's loss if she is grossly overweight, too stubborn to diet, and goes on TSR and forces 'fat love' down people's throats (and crisps down her own). This just antagonises women her size, so now we have idiots on TSR who say all women who aren't skinny are desperate and greedy and horrible, which isn't the case at all.

    There is not one figure that can please EVERYBODY. But who wants the hassle of being fancied by everybody anyway?

    yes - but girls - in light of my post above - note that all these girls in those pics are half naked. truth is, most guys on here would be grateful to bang either one of them regardless of their size.

    Guys don't really care about weight you should simply ask yourself if your healthy and comfortable with your own weight. However if you keep asking yourself do guys think im fat? are they thinking I am ugly?

    I would say you have low self esteem and low confidence therefore if its such a big deal to you emotionally do something about it. Go jogging and lose that weight thats troubling you.

    Really though if you are happy with your own weight you should just date a guy that is happy with who you are and not always try changing youself for others.

    I have been attracted to many different woman larger and smaller in size I am not really attracted to skinny woman I can not stand woman with no hips or curves its terrible they look like guys.

    A bit of fat is not a bad thing as long as you are not actually fat.

    as for imperial maniacs post I would be more attracted to the secound woman in pink lingerie simply because she is more attractive she is more natural she clearly is a healthy looking woman also she is a very curvy woman this is the look woman should aspire to be like not that size zero unnatural look created by the modelling inustry you should aim at being more Coleen Rooney than Victoria Beckham.

    Obviously some woman are naturally skinny and I have nothing against that they to are beautiful but its when it clearly looks like a woman has stopped eating a healthy diet to be that size which is wrong.

    Really though just make sure your happy with who you are if you feel you want to change than do it. But don't aim for that unnatural look seriously its not attractive or healthy.
