    I don't think so. It's motivational stuff to help people not eat cake and junk. My objection is that the positive motivation is to look like a gross scarecrow.

      Karen Carpenter was the epitome of slim. Sadly, just when she got down to no food at all, she died.

      Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

        I bet she had great hipbones.

          My understanding is that she had been on the road to recovery some time when she died of a heart ailment related to her longterm anorexia.

            But could you see her damn collarbones?

              No doubt.

              Quite a few years back I read an article in Cosmopolitan interviewing lifetime bachelors about their attitudes toward dating, women, etc. Several mentioned that their ideal woman, in fact the only type of woman who would be good enough for them, would have to have the "three diamond" look to her legs: when her feet and knees were together, she should have 3 gaps showing daylight.

              And even if this perfect woman could be found, she would still have to be able to guarantee him that she would never put on weight.

              My ex-husband thought that the correct weight for a 5'4" woman was 100 pounds. At the time I was less than 130 and, in his opinion, morbidly obese. Whatever.

                Where are the gaps supposed to be? I can see thigh and shins, but? Not that I give three squirts about my own legs, just curious.

                Also, you can see my collar bone, even my breast bone, and my hips bones, but my ass is fat. Can I still have ice cream?

                  I vaguely recall they were above the ankles, above the calves, and between the thighs.

                    I wouldn't be the slightest bit motivated by something that was that hard line and it's sad that a lot of people would look at those photos and figure a diet of lettuce and air is what it takes to have visible hip or collarbones. I don't think the odd bit of cake and junk is the difference between thinness and obesity.

                      Oh good something new to obsess about! Honestly before I started reading this forum I was blissfully ignorant. I thought the current weight I'm at now, was alright, I've since learned 10lbs less would get me in the "look good naked category", I thought wearing a size 8 was okay, then I learned I should strive for a size 4. Now I'm pretty sure I'm a freak because my legs don't touch at all, short of surgery I don't think they ever will.

                      How do we go from judging the minutiae of our unique shapes to loving them? I think for myself I may have to limit my reading here.

                        Yes, ice cream is always the right call.

                          I am the ideal woman. And I'm a man.
                          The above should be viewed as complete and utter nonsense.

                            I can see half my collar bones. I guess I'm half-way acceptable.

                                But it's supposed to be a triangle/diamond of space between the top of your thighs and your hoo hoo, not between your this all the way from hoo hoo to knobbly knees :-)
