Here’s the deal; it might not seem very hurtful to call someone too skinny, but it is just as hurtful to be called to skinny as it is to be called fat. As someone who has had to listen to the ‘too skinny’ comments in the past, it’s usually the way that it’s delivered. It’s the woman who tells you after you give birth to twins that you’re too skinny to be a mom or that you have to take care of yourself because you’re setting a poor example for your kids in a tone that’s just plain hateful; to look at her and respond that maybe she should take the ice cream out of her cart at the supermarket and hit the gym would be rude. But what she says is considered perfectly fine. It is not fine. Guess what? Some people are just small by nature. Some people have four kids and eat healthy and work out and because they are so active, they’re skinny. Some people have health issues you know nothing about. And some people are just too skinny and it’s kind of gross, but that doesn’t mean you can say it. However, reality stars are making the topic more and more public, and it’s probably a good thing. It will bring awareness to good health from all angles rather than the, “You’re too fat,” angle. So here are five reality stars that are a bit too thin – but don’t be so quick to judge.
She’s a toothpick and she knows it. She’s even said she’s too obsessed with working out and being active and that eating isn’t something she does as often as she should. As a professional chef in a past life, she should be more vigilant about her eating habits. But awareness is the first step to recovery.
She’s always been thin, and we think that her frame is naturally thin. However, she has suffered cancer, she is taking a lot of medications and she’s struggled with infertility. Because she’s naturally thin and her body is going through so much, she’s working hard to gain some weight and finding it is not that easy. So let’s cut her some slack because she’s dealing with more than enough.
The former Real Housewife of Beverly Hills is looking very sick these days. She’s been through a lot, but she’s clearly not taking care of herself, and it’s worrisome. With bones poking out of every possible body part, it’s becoming a little scary.
She’s the former star of Laguna Beach and we see photos of her doing nothing but hitting the gym or making really healthy meals. We half think she’s just taking really good care of herself and we half think that she’s become a bit obsessed with being thin.
This girl cannot catch a break. She’s thinner now after two kids than she was before she had kids, and she’s almost scary looking at the moment. We applaud her for wanting to get healthy since she clearly was not for a long time, but has she gone too far?
