Actually, it's much, much more related to genetics.
Everyone has a "healthy" weight, and for some, that may be what one would consider "fat" and for others, it may be what some consider "thin".
This "healthy" weight is the weight that your body always seems to go to when you eat regularly with a normal amount of exercise. The problem is that some people, who may have had bigger parents, won't except their healthy weight and then spend all of their waking time obsessing over it, trying to get to their "goal weight".
I'm somewhat rambling, but my point is that things such as your genetics, which tie directly into your metabolism- play about the same role in your size as lifestyle, diet and exercise do.
Does this dress make me look fat?
Pretty hard to golf with a big chest. Or do many of these things with a larger body. I think if I had that actress Christina Hendricks' body I would be miserable! Not to mention howling in pain from carrying around those gigantic melons! Her chest = 3 of my butts! Yeeooow! How can such a person even stand upright? I would not like to have a body like that or the "curvy" "BBW" body. OUCH!

I love skinny women, I love shapely women, I love short women and I love tall women. I love white women, I love dark skinned women... They are all OK by me! Why would anyone wish to pit one against the other as somehow being more valid. I think people need to stop objectifying and just accept all the many shapes and colours they come in. They are all beautiful.

All skinny women are stupid? What a waste of a thread. I hope you're not just bitter.

Here is "Hourglass of the Moment" Christina Hendricks.
Do you think Christina has more curves because she eats more? No. Look at this: ninjamonkeys.co.za...

I would think a woman who is large but who bikes and hikes all the time and eats good food would be just as attractive as a super skinny chick who also bikes and hikes all the time and eats good food, because they are both treating their bodies with respect.

I think threads like this may infact be responsible for dumbing down the next generation, not 'skinny chicks'
