Heidi Klum: Naturally Skinny People “Born That Way!”
Hi guys! I just spent my Saturday afternoon putting together a shareable image quote by Heidi Klum.
"Some people are born skinny, and that's just the way it is. You can't point a finger at them and say they're ill or anorexic. It isn't fair to people born that way."
Thank you Heidi, for standing up for us naturally skinny girls!

Keira Knightley: Defends her naturally thin frame
I love Keira Knightley. She's not only a super talented and beautiful actress. To me, she's someone I've personally always been able to relate to, at least from a body-image point. She's naturally thin, just like me. And just like in real life, you don't meet a lot of naturally thin women.
Over the years, Keira has had to defend her thin body frame numerous times, always putting down rumors about being 'anorexic.'
I personally know what it's like for people to question your body image. I've dealt with a lot of teasing in high school. And I exactly remember where I stood and what I was doing when my dad looked me in the eyes and asked me "Are you sure you're eating enough? There is nothing you need to tell me?" I was 14 years old, and it crushed my body image.
I'm not anorexic
But I don't know what it's like when magazines write about your body, and analyze it like it's a piece of meat going up for auction. I don't know what it's like when newspapers show pictures of your belly somehow proving you're not eating enough, or when your body is being altered in movie posters because your breasts aren't big enough to sell the movie.
And that's exactly what Keira has had to deal with.
"The anorexic stuff — It's always going to have an impact, so I think it did hit pretty hard," Keira Knightley told Allure magazine in the December issue. "Because you go, oh, maybe that's right! I knew I wasn't anorexic, but maybe my body is somehow not right."
I think all women, no matter what body size or shape, go through a phase of uncertainty. Comparing yourself to other women with other shapes and sizes. Not knowing why your body is shaped the way it is.
Yes, some women are naturally thin. And no, it's not ok to call us anorexic!
I'm so glad to have Keira Knightley as a role model for all us naturally thin girls. Sometimes I just want to write her a letter and thank her!
Did you know that Keira actually sued Daily Mail for saying she had anorexia? She won nearly $6,000. And she won the truth.
She won the right to stand up for yourself. She showed the world that YES, some women are naturally thin. And NO, it's not ok to call them anorexic!
Do men like naturally thin women?
YES - the right man for you will!! I just came across this Yahoo question by a naturally thin girl, and some of the answers are just SO dissapointing. I wish we could just respect and embrace all body types - without putting one type down!
I've been naturally thin my entire life, and trust me - there are PLENTY guys interested in me! Being thin does not equal anorexic or ugly. If you feel good about yourself, other people won't have a choice but to do the same!
I just wish this girl will understand it too:
"Maybe I'm just being insecure here, but I've always been naturally thin. I'm 5'7" and weigh around 110 to 115 pounds on average. I eat what I want, I exercise regularly, and I don't really go out of my way to maintain or change how I look. It's just how I am by nature.I keep reading articles about how men think skinny women are undesirable, unattractive, and how most if not all would prefer a size 14 instead of a size 6. I'm a size 2, so I guess I'm on the glaring end of spectrum as far as sexiness goes.The thing is, I have a defined waist. My hips are wide, they aren't boy hips. I have small breasts, but they are proportionate. I like the way I look but I am constantly told by people that I am anorexic, too skinny, need to eat more, and don't have any curves. I just don't understand why people attack thin women so much. Do men really think thin is gross? I have an Audrey Hepburn body type, but would every man reallt prefer a thicker woman like Marilyn Monroe?"
Thin does not equal gross. Keep liking the way you look!
Don't listen to the people who try to put you down - it says more about their self esteem than your beauty.
Don't compare yourself to other women or other bodytypes.
You are who you are, accept it, embrace it, and love it.
Others will have no choice but to follow your lead! :)
