Today it's been almost a year and a half since I graduated from my eating disorder treatment program, after battling bulimia and body dysmorphia (among other depression-related illnesses) for over 8 years. No matter how much happier and healthier I am now, I sometimes appall myself when I see a photo of me from that period of my life and I catch myself wishing I could go back to being that skinny. MMT

Skinny girls look bad and unhealthy. They don't have the important parts for men....tits, ass ... When I look at many skinny top models, I think ... why anyone would want to be like them ? Strong is the new skinny. Maybe that will help.

Body shaming, either side of the spectrum, is extremely unattractive though, MaximB.

I agree with Vacant.

You make straight men look bad. Women have no obligations to meet your concept of attractiveness.

I know eating disorders are complicated. It's not just a matter of caring about your weight or not caring. But, just try to remember, you can be happy and beautiful at any weight.
