    i have the opposite too. i used to get bullied for being too fat and it still effects me quite a lot (even tho it was about 6 yrs ago). What matters mostly is that you are comfortable with yourself. If you are comfortable with yourself then others will learn to be comfortable with you too. If you can't accept yourself, then you can't really expect others to accept you.

    If you really hate your appearance, then you could always go to the gym and try and build up some bulk, but it sounds like you care more about wat other ppl think, not what u think bout urself. And u shud neva change urself to suit sum1 else (because it always ends in tears and an identity crisis <IMG alt="image" alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/frown.gif">)

    I used to be really thin and ppl called me pigeon legs...Not Funny.
    But recently I put lotsa weight on and its soo hard to loose it!
    I know exactly how u feel but I think if u act like u dont care, ppl will loose interest!

    i used to be quite tall and thin, now im not so thin! im not fat though, im size 10-12 (sometimes 14 but hey, dress sizes are weird). im about 5'7, not sure how heavy, i think its about 10 stone, although it might be less after the last week of having not much to eat!! lol.. sorry long story, not actually that funny. i just dont like bits of me, like my stomach and thighs and stuff, and id rather they were more toned. i know what the answer is: exercise! but guess what, im lazy.

    anyway im going off the point... it shouldnt matter what other people think of your appearance, it has sod all to do with them, next time someone makes a nasty comment, either take it as a joke or respond in kind, either in a jokey way or if theyre doing it to be nasty and do it often, then see how they like the same sort of treatment back to them. but dont let them see they get a rise out of you or it'll just make them do it more. same with most bullying, of the verbal kind anyway.

    when i was little i was called sparrow legs and matchstick legs, and never 2 go out in a storm as i will snap in 1/2! but they were all obv just jealous.
    but when peeps say im skinny now i go mad and say no im not im slim!
    they also say my bodies outta proportion, but thats just cause im slim with boobs and they aint got none!
    when i went on the pill i retained a lot a water, so i went through a podgy stage, and i got the piss taken then aswell, no matter wot, people always find a 'minor fault', and its normally not ur prob, its the other person with the complex.
    i know its hard not 2 listen and people tell u 2 ignor it, but the person whos the bully, is the 1 with the prob.

    dont worry about what people say, they just do it because they see a difference in you to themselves and have to pick up on it so no one can notice their paranoid differences

    Yeah...i was exactly the same, i was like a stick, Size 8 i think i was, i wasn't a healthy kid, which may have had something to do with it, but as i got over it, and went on the pill, i seemed to put 4 stone on over night, and i've been trying to get it off ever since. I was a size 18, but now can get into 14/16, but still not happy.

    I used to be able to eat anything and not out it on, all my mates were getting curvy but i didn't.

    I don't want to be like that again, but to perhaps lose a 2 stone would be good. Hey i'll donate you some if you like lol.

    My own father used to say that if my boobs were any smaller they would be dents!!! He's not a pedaphile or owt, just his sence of humour.

    Nah seriously...how old r u? You'll probably fill out as you get older if you are young.
    Don't worry about other people, they probably just saying stuff coz they want to be like you!

    Is size 8 bad? My mate's ultra-skinny and she's a 6 so when I went down to an 8 recently I didn't see anything wrong with it. Is it too small? Got me worried now!

    Ooooh i just remembered something really interesting that i heard on the radio a while ago

    only 1% of women are happy with their bodies.

    I think woman are programmed to hate their bodies when they are born. Thats the only possible reason. My gf has a lovely body (shes a 12) but she hates it.

    my body's basically okay, i dont have any major issues about the size of it or anything (size 10 in some tops, size 12 for bottoms and stuff if i want long sleeves!) but i hate bits of it with a passion, like my thighs and my stomach and my upper arms! well actually theyr enot too bad, could just do with being toned up a bit. i know i could make myself look better to myself if i did exercise, but im terribly lazy!! so sadly i cant.

    I'm VERY skinny also and I hate it!!!! It doesn't bother me as much now as it used to do but I still do get the occasional comment about me.

    Its very hurtful and doesn't do much for my self confidence. Oh well! <IMG alt="image" alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/frown.gif"&gt;

    I had an IQ test. The results came back negative
  • Girl-From-MarsGirl-From-Mars Posts: 2,822 Boards Guru
    mark ur not THAT skinny, these people that say things to you are the ones with the problem, you have to learn to not let it hurt you, i know its difficult, but its really none of their business how thin they are and you have to react to it in a way that shows its none of their business. they have no right to comment on your appearance and why should you care what these people think?!

    people who make nasty comments about other people's appearance totally suck in my opinion.

    I don't know about anyone else butI prefered her when she was big! Now she looks weird! There is nothing wrong with fatpeople unless they are too fat like sumo wrestlers!

    I am skinny. I always have been. Until I was 12 I only weighed about 4 and 1/2 stones .Now I'm about 7 stone 2 lb, so its better. I should be 7and 1/2 stone for my height cos I'm 5'5".
    I hate my feet cos thy're huge (6) compared to my skinny legs so I never wear skirts.
    I eat quite a lot but I never seem to put any weight on.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    take it from someone who nearly killed themself trying to be skinny - you're extremely lucky. most girls would kill to have stick thin bodies, me included <IMG alt="image" alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/frown.gif"&gt;

    i'm not denying that women are stupid; God made us to match the men.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    4getto - you don't say how old you are.. I know a couple of people who were really skinny till they got to about 16.
    If you are over 16 (and only if) I would suggest you try going to the gym, lifing weights, as that'd build up bulk without getting you fat.

    I'm overweight myself, and have been having a problem trying to starve to lose weight, but in the end it shouldn't matter what you look like.

    Re: only 1% of women are happy with their bodies - I think a major problem is the way the media talk about people, I mean, they come over with the idea that only really thin women are attractive, and the models portrayed as the most beautiful in the world are medically underweight, as well as being very small built anyway!
    And we women have this to battle with, in every magazine, on every television programme.

    After thinking about this quite hard, the best advice I can suggest, for everyone, whether under or over weight, is that you should find something you like about your body, and think about that.
    Not easy, but with practice it does work!
    eg, I tell myself I have a beautiful smile, that works even on my most ugly and fat days!!
