About being thin

Countless times on the internet you read about people being overweight and happy with it. Which is great, I know some people who are incredibly beautiful and don't have the "perfect weight". It doesn't matter what you weigh, as long as you are happy with it and as long as it doesn't make you sick. Beauty has nothing to do with your size, weight, or the size of your ass. That being said, I want to talk about being too thin.

Thin people tend to get a lot of hate on the internet. They are called anorexic, bag of bones or whatever. I have been called these things too. In real life. To my face. It's true, I am quite thin. I weigh about 5 kg too little for my height. Or maybe a bit more ... But well, here's why: I have no idea. I eat like a normal person, I don't do a lot of sports, I looooove ice cream and chocolate, noodles and carbs in general. I eat fast food and vegetables alike. I like to think of myself as a happy eater. I live quite healthy (at least I keep telling that to myself) and I eat what I enjoy. BUT I don't gain weight. On the contrary: When I'm ill or stressed out I immediately lose a couple of kilos. Without noticing I can lose up to 3 kg a week, which is a whole lot for me. When that happens, my circulatory system stops working properly and I get sick to my stomach and vertigo. So I try to gain the weight again. Which sounds easy but really isn't. It can take me months to gain 3 kg. Months! So yeah, being underweight is not that much fun at all.

What I wanted to say is: Don't hate people just because they are thin. Some people just are. Just as some people are overweight. What matters is, that you are happy and healthy. Love yourself, no matter what size you are wearing. Because when you feel beautiful, people around you notice.
