Do you feel pressured to be thin?

No way.
I get a lot of stick for being as skinny as I am.

Some people are thin and some aren't. People should just be secure with their body weight.
11 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 10/5/06 - 2:46:31 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yeh, I do. It seems like Im the only one in my whole college who isnt thin.
11 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 10/5/06 - 4:39:41 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes.


Thin + attractive= you're treated better than most people.

11 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 10/5/06 - 9:28:14 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, I blame all my problems on being chubby.
11 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Friday 10/6/06 - 12:45:08 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, definitely, but most of the pressure comes from me.
11 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Friday 10/6/06 - 1:51:56 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, in fact when I was in my teens/early twenties I was pressured to be fatter. I was a very very thin girl.
11 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Friday 10/6/06 - 9:06:22 AM EST (GMT-5)
I'm under no pressure to be thin, but it does piss people off that I can eat what I want, when I want and still lose wieght.

i dont want to be "thin".

i'd rather be a heathly weight

11 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Sunday 10/15/06 - 12:25:51 PM EST (GMT-5)
I want to lose another 9kg but I like how I look now cause I've lost nearly 30 kg in the past 3 years.

I was pressured by my dad for a few years to lose weight but I didn't think I had to back then and now I desperately wanted to lose weight....

I think everyone feel pressured to lose weight by what they see and read on magazines,tv etc. I think that most of the people think if they'll lose weight that they'll look like the people that they read about and watch.

I'm under no pressure..accept seeing some jealousy from my family..
11 yrs ago - Wednesday 11/15/06 - 5:43:49 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'm not fat, but I want to be thinner, my sister used to be really thin, I hate being the fatter one!
11 yrs ago - Wednesday 11/15/06 - 5:48:01 PM EST (GMT-5)
Not really. I like my weight and it's normal. I'm not overweight or under.

That's true.

Although I'm happy with my weight at the moment. =)

11 yrs ago - Wednesday 11/15/06 - 8:31:17 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'm at a healthy weight, but I want to be extremely thin so I won't have to worry about being judged anymore.
11 yrs ago - Wednesday 11/15/06 - 8:32:24 PM EST (GMT-5)
you can never be too thin or too rich...
11 yrs ago - Thursday 11/16/06 - 4:21:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
Pressured by myself.
11 yrs ago - Thursday 11/16/06 - 4:26:16 PM EST (GMT-5)
Not from my family or friends, but from the people in the media I do. I try to tell myself that they have a distorted idea of what is considered beautiful, but I still somewhat buy into it from time to time.
11 yrs ago - Thursday 11/16/06 - 4:26:34 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, but the pressure from burger king to eat one of their meals is stronger
11 yrs ago - Thursday 11/16/06 - 4:33:31 PM EST (GMT-5)
I've always pressured myself to be thin...
11 yrs ago - Thursday 11/16/06 - 4:45:52 PM EST (GMT-5)
A little, but for my height and bone structure I *should* be thin. I'm within the healthy weight range, but I have a bit of room to go lower.
11 yrs ago - Thursday 11/16/06 - 4:57:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
Hellz no, I've been underweight all my life, and quite frankly I'm sick of hearing about it.

Hun, hate to say it, but you'll be judged either way. Too thin and people will be talking about how skinny you are, and judging you.

10 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 11/19/06 - 8:24:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
Not at all, I've always felt secure about my body, Also I'm a boy, which probably helps.

Yeah, but I doubt that they wouldn't be as hard on me.
