Samantha’s Story

My name is Samantha and I live in Holland.
I was reading the story of Toni, and I realize that we have the same problem over here. Black girls always need to have a big but and big boobs. Its terrible because if you are naturally skinny you can’t do a thing about it. I’m skinny too, well they say so.. First I didn’t feel skinny, but after a while people kept saying it, so I started to believe in it. I’m not looking skinny.. I am 1.72 long and my weith is 58,5 KG. But sometimes I do feel skinny. Even if I know it isn’t true, I doubt it because THEY say so. Sometimes I also try to eat more than I normally do. I love to eat, but sometimes I eat to much and then I also starting to feel unhealthy.
Look, If your skinny becuase your not eating, then I understand that people call you skinny, but if you are healthy and eating normal than it’s terrible to be called skinny. Somebody at my work had the guts to ask if I was ill because I am so small.. I got mad at here.. not beacuse she said so, but because she didn’t know how much she hurted me with that question. You see she was fatt and I dind’t hurd here with that. I really cried that day, after when I got mad at here ofcorse.
What I really wan’t to say is.. Skinny people please dont listen to others..they might be yalouse or trying to get you down. We are beautyfull nomather what they say..!!!
Sincerly yours,

Mike’s Story

Don’t forget there are naturally skinny guys out there. As a child, I was so skinny that I could get my thumb and forefinger completely around my upper arm. I ate everything in sight, and never gained any weight. I was weaker than the other kids, and no good at sports. I grew up believing I wasn’t a real man, and that no girl would ever want me. I never dated in high school. While I got heavier with age, I couldn’t see it, and developed a case of Muscle Dysmorphia. That is sometimes called reverse anorexia, where you think you are too skinny. With that comes intense shame, and intense fear that someone will notice how skinny you are. For forty years I could not go to the beach, wear t shirts, or shorts. Finially I realized that this is not right, and it is OK to be skinny, and if somebody doesn’t like it, that’s too bad. It took ten years of baby steps, wearing t shirts, and shorts to get over it. Now I can go to the beach and swim, and if anyone sees my skinny arms and legs, so what? The important thing is there are other guys out there with the same problem. I know a very skinny fifteen year old boy who I mentor. He has no father, and he hangs out with me. He has told me the same things about being skinny that I have told you. I can help him.

Meghan’s Story

Hello, I am a 26 year old, 5 “3 small framed blonde girl who has weighed about 100 lbs for as long as I can remember. I have always been active and for the longest time I never really gave thought to being skinny. People would grab my wrists and say how disgusting and fragile they were, or they would look at me funny if I said I was interested in going on an 8 hr hike or doing some other activity that would take strength and endurance. I never really let myself care. I love nature and I love being active! However, I am a women now and I am getting tired or maybe I am just more sensitive to being picked on for being skinny. I can’t believe it, but I’m starting to doubt myself and my ability to do things where I never had before. I find myself thinking, maybe their right? maybe I am too weak to do activity “x”. I hate it. I know it’s not true but it’s HARD SOMETIMES. I’m a women, a small one yes, but an active and healthy women. I don’t like feeling like some freak in a child’s body. Being called anorexic was the most insulting thing I’ve ever had to endure. But you know what? My body IS who I am and overall I wouldn’t change it for the world. Skinny girls will always have to endure insults but it can make you stronger, make you better if you find a way to laugh at it all and know that you are healthy and capable of doing whatever you wish
