So "beautiful just as you are" only applies to certain body types? I dislike the idea that in order to build the confidence of one group of women, you have to trash another group. And please don't go: "Oh, well, the media builds skinny girls up so much that getting taken down a peg or two couldn't hurt them." In my experience, EVERY girl -- no matter her weight -- tends to pick at and obsess over her perceived flaws. You're acting no better than the media with your divide and conquer strategy; you're just doing it from a different location.
To the OP, there is beauty in being fit, just as there is beauty in being curvy, slender, plump, petite, etc. You are making certain demands on your body with your activities, and your body is answering these demands. Some people are not so blessed.

Which part of "beautiful just as you are"
are you unhappy with?
Why the ????? Can't you just take the statement at face value stop there?
Nobody is putting a downer on skinny people, it's a fact that some men like curves, some don't, some like blondes, other brunettes, some tall, some short, see where this is going?
OP, you look great, I'm sorry that you see thunder thighs, certainly no one else does, we see a beautifully proportioned person with no body issues.
Ladies and gentlemen, heads up, we are all different, we all have strengths and weaknesses, but for each and everyone of us it is the beauty within that is more important than the trappings of the outer body.
