If she was personally happy with her body, I don't think she'd have created this thread...(Original post by Anonymous)
They clearly aren't very good friends if they're that awful to you. Don't let other people's opinions make you feel bad - if you're healthy and personally happy with your body (which you should be) then that's really all that matters.
Regarding the statements that all men like 'curves' - that really isn't the case; everyone is different, and many people will prefer a petite nature.
Essentially - don't worry, be happy. It sounds like a cliche, but really: don't let other people's opinions shape your happiness and life overall.
Media these days has so much conflicting material, too fat, too skinny, too pale, too much make up, too little makeup etc etc. You can't win and I challenge anybody to say that they are truly happy with their bodies when this kind of social pressure is always on them.
I think the key is acceptance of what you are, acceptance of your limitations (with weight gain it's difficult for some) and surround yourself with people who won't make you feel like **** about how you look. You don't need it and you don't have to put up with it. My friends appreciate me for me and not anything else.

are you sure they're not just joking? I don't think they need to be making comments like that, which aren't true and certainly aren't necessary. And why do you care what men like in general? Live you life the way you want to live it, I know it's a cliché but if you really want to find a boyfriend then someone who really likes you will come along eventually. I imagine you're pretty young so I think there's plenty of time for it!

My older sister is just like this. And I always think the whole skinny jealous of fat is a complete rubbish. But no. Thinner is better is normally high fashion. Thicker, curvy is more so what the everyday man seems to prefer. So I get your confusion and fat people being insecure as well. My older sister has no excuse to be horrible to me but I am 4 yrs her junior and I grew up getting guys her age approaching the two of us but to talk to me. Especially as I got older, but when I was younger she automatically thought they were coming over for her so I get the embarrassment when they ignored her and talked to an 11 yr old instead. To get thicker if you want just do squats and put on healthy fat like eat peanuts and beef or something.

Um ... start eating as healthy as you can, really look into it. Focus on fitness, also focus on extra-curricular activities and what you are good at. Get a job if you can. It will make you focus on important things. As long as you are healthy you are fine.
