Why is it now adays people are so conserned with loosing weight and being thin. After seeing my sister and the way she acts, makes me feel sick. I worry now if i start to loose weight. I am quite happy being the average weight for my height, but why do people want to be less. Food is a part of life, people dont appreciate it enough. Recently it has become more than just not eating, people self harm, take laxatives and all sorts, anything just to be thin. It is vile! And there are people out there, such as celebrities who dont help, they have become dangerous role models to young people. Can people just not be bothered anymore to eat propaly and excercise??

For some reason society says we all have to be thin, vuluptuous, and tall. Well, forget society, keep being happy the way you are! And make sure you tell the women around you they are beautiful the way they are.

i know i agree. but because of society, people have forgotten what its like to be themselves. being confident in yourself is what keeps you looking good.

not anyone have the same attitude towards eating.. some people may tend to do those kind of weird acts just to be slim.. i for one is dieting but not to the extent of doing what is not normal.. i don't blame the celebrities which are obviously anorexic.. it's a disorder i guess..
