    women say that they get jelous of other women because they are slim but I dont see why because they can be slim too with a bit of work :/ Theres a girl who has a nice body (as in slim no boobs or anything) and others say they envy her body but she has worked for it. She has health problems etc so I just dont get why they say they envy her, anyone can be slim

    Anyone can be rich too, but people still envy the rich.

    Envy isn't about wanting things you can't have, it's about longing for something that someone else has that you want. Attainability is irrelevant.

    what makes you think that? Ask any bodybuilder they will tell you that anyone can be slim if they try to. So what is the point in being jelous?
    Or am i not allowed to point something out without being insulted is that what its about lol

    You just seem like you have a problem with people who are overweight. Either way, it's an immature view point.

    I know that I can be slimmer if I tried a tad harder :teehee:

    But when I say I envy somebody's body or something 'tis because it's better than mine :sad: at that moment in time and therefore I am a little jelly which would then motivate me to lay of the chocolate cake and whatnot

    why is it immature though? By immature you mean its not something that adults tend to think? Tell me whats a mature viewpoint then?

    All Im saying is whats the point of complaining and being jelous of others over something which you can control and attain yourself relatively easily? How is this immature?

    No problem with overweight people or anyone

    Get a high-paying job, start a successfully company, become a high-class prostitute. The world is filled with possibilities.

    I envy taller slim women because they can gain a few pounds and it not be noticeable but if I gain a few pounds it's noticeable because I'm so short there is less space for the weight to distribute.
