That's a really interesting image!!! Very cool to see so many women, of different body types, weighing the exact same weight.
Maybe this is terrible of me and maybe I'm different than the average person, but I could care less WHAT anyone else weighs as long as they're healthy and take care of themselves.
For instance, my best friend is very overweight and is constantly picking at herself due the weight. However, at this point, her lifestyle of low activity and high caloric intake is so ingrained that for her, a small meal is 1500 calories. Just the other day I watched her eat a massive slice of pizza (it was probably 6-7 inches crust-tip and had perhaps a foot of crust) and a few baby carrots, then tell me she was excited about eating "healthy" because since the pizza+carrots were "organic and gluten-free", like that somehow made them inherently healthy.
Maybe this is mean but I have a problem with that sort of lifestyle. The one that doesn't know what they're eating, eats crap, then complains about their weight or about how no one accepts them for the weight they are.
I love "round" women. At 5'9" and 145lbs, I'm the skinniest and tallest of all my friends. My friends are all built like most of the models in that picture, I love it and I'm even a bit jealous of them. I wish I had hips and boobs...but I don't.
I just want them to be a healthy curvy. None of this complaining about how people judge them. Really, why does it matter if people judge you?
People judge me when I eat a salad for lunch but a salad is one of my most favorite foods. Who cares that it's stereotypical "skinny people" food? If I love myself and love the way I look, judge away. But if I hate the way I look, well, I should probably do something about it instead of trying to force others to accept me how I can't accept myself.
Basically, I just cannot stand complaining for the sake of complaining. If you want to complain about your weight while exercising and making healthy eating choices, bummer, but I'll support it and encourage you. If you want to complain while sitting on the couch all day, drinking 5 cans of soda, and downing 5000 calories a day, I'm not going to stick around.
Just be a healthy you: plump, stick skinny, round, curvy, whatever. Weight is just a number.
