*scream of horror* AH, ANOREXIC! Where's a doctor?
She looks like one of those fun house carnival mirror reflections.
So this is being passed around everywhere in my mama's group, and of course the typical PETA videos (which i have already tried to mention are very to the extreme end, and yes it is very unfortunate but this isn't the answer!) And yeah the girl is skinny as can be...I just don't even know what to say anymore. Or should I even counter-argue or just let them be with this. I care about a lot of these women, but I don't think the frustration is worth it anymore.
She doesn't look anorexic to me. Just lean. She's got plenty of boobage (assuming they're natural), her face has roundness to it, and she looks healthy. She's pretty hot, actually.
Today I will: Eat food, not poison. Plan for success, not settle for failure. Live my real life, not a virtual one. Move and grow, not sit and die.

I find her attractive too. A little bit lean for my tastes, but I prefer the Kim.K. (minus the giant ass) type of curvature. Either that or some nice muscle definition some where, which she clearly lacks.
I have skinny friends who can eat anything they want too... also friends who have never had a weight problem. I definitely don't listen to them about dieting.
I don't think it is healthy to criticize other people's bodies whether they are chub or thin.
clearly, the only options are:
1. 3000 calories of burgers a day
2. 3000 calories of fruit a day
anything else makes no sense whatsoever
It's so CW and wrong to jump on ANY band wagon based soley on a claim of "You too can look like this if you just do what I did..."
As June just said, there are all body types and different things are going to work for different people. Some folks are naturally thin, some bulky, some short, some tall, some react quickly to lifestyle changes and others take time, etc...etc...etc.
One thing to ask yourself, earthspirit, 1) is there a chance in hell of you looking like that (if you want to), 2) what would you have to do to make the journey healthy, 3) how to modify perceptions all around (including your own!) to be happy with the best you can do.
I personally think she looks deformed...long skinny torso looks soft/fragile. Don't think I could rely on her to carry her share of any load, be relied upon to have stamina for much work and has absolutely NO reserves to last through even a lean day or two!
