I don't get it why people say to me that I'm too thin and that I have to gain a little weight because it looks good on me. I mean why? I'm comfortable in my own skin. I don't listen to it but it really gets annoying sometime. Do you have the same experience? Have a Great Day ahead of you :)

if it doesn't affect your work or studies, if you are not sickly, if you have enough strength and energy, just shrug them off. maybe your metabolism will slow down when you're much older, maybe it won't. until then, just be yourself.
Oh yes! For most of my life I had been called skinny and too think and whenever people saw me they told me to eat more and gain weight. My height is 5'3" and I used to weigh only 42-45kg. Then when my son was 2 years old, I decided to do everything just to gain weight. I've reached my ideal weight of 55kg and I had been told I was fat but that made me really happy. But the truth was I wasn't really fat at 55kg. They weren't just used to seeing me in that weight. It was the first time I experienced wearing Medium clothes. Now I'm just 51kg and I'm back to small with a waistline of 25inches.
Well I can relate because I took my Body Mass Index once and it says I need to lose weight because I'm over weight for my age range and when I did, they said I don't need to because I don't look over weight instead I need to gain more weight.

You have to gently tell them the truth, so that they too, will know your feelings about their suggestions...and maybe they will cease to tell you things you don't like...If they are your friends they will understand...if not, ignore them and go on with your life there are more better things in life to focus on...
