I Am Naturally Thin and People Think I Am Anorexic

Anorexic comments and I am natural 86 People

    It Used To Hurt. Now It's Just Annoying.

    I'm skinny. I have arms and legs like sticks and practically no boobs whatsoever. That being said, I love my body just the way it is. I have a thigh gap, and I'm proud of it, dammit. People come up to me all the time and point-blank ask me if I'm anorexic or bulimic. (I am 5'10...

    I have always been skinny. I'm tall too. About 5"10. And i weigh 50-55kgs. I hate the fact that people would assume i must have a eating disorder just because i'm skinny. I eat so much, and have a very fast metabolism. It really makes me angry when people make...

    "Naturally Slender"

    ...are the exact words my OB/GYN used to my mother to describe me after I had stepped on the scale. She had to see for herself if I was truly healthy, I guess. She came inside with me to my appointment (I was 16) and asked the doctor questions about my weight. Embarrassing. The...

    It is very annoying especially when your shopping for clothes. People expect me to be a size US 8 for my height but Im a 4 depending on the brand. Growing up, I wasn't a chick too confident with my shape. I was heckled for what I look like and people speculated that I was 10...

    Ugh. It used to be hurtful

    when people said things like "you're way too skinny, eat a burger!" But now it's just flat out annoying. I'm so tired of people body shaming whether it be fat shaming or skinny shaming. "Eat a burger, you're too skinny" is no less annoying than "eat a salad, you're too fat." And...

    I Love Cheeseburgers

    I do not think I will ever comprehend why people feel like they can be cruel and harassing to thin people. I heard a woman on the radio indignantly say "When I see those twigs [insultingly referring to thin women] I just want to break them!". Why would you want to break me...

    Yep I've written about this in another story, I think. Here are the cliff notes: Always been really skinny. So everyone else thought I was anorexic (as the title of this group implies) and my friends would constantly ask me if I was anorexic. This was not only because...

    My Grandma Makes Me Hate Myself...

    I'm 19 years old. I weigh about 120lbs and I'm about 5'7 in height. My grandma (and the rest of my family, but mostly my grandma) has been harassing me for a decade (since I was 9 so more than half of my life), claiming that I am anorexic. I don't know how to convince her/them...

    No Eating Problem...

    I am not and never will be. I weigh between 50-55 kg and eat healthily when I am hungry. I have a fast metabolism and want a butt and some hips someday. Some people give me a migraine with their insistence that I have an eating disorder.

    Some Do And Others Don't

    I am quite healthy by having a vegetarian diet along with exercise. I used to weigh 180 pounds several years ago and have since gone down over 50. I have maintained a healthy lifestyle ever since that went down and yet people still get on my case claiming/believeing I am...

    No, I Don't Have An Eating Disorder Nor a Drug Habit! I'm Just Skinny!

    When I graduated high school I was 5'11 and weighed around 200 lbs.  I weighed about the same my freshman year of college, but had grown about two inches.  My sophomore year I moved into my own apartment and struggled financially.  I couldn't afford to...

    Even Doctors

    I've had quite a few people accuse me of being anorexic. I'm about 5'7" and weigh around 90-95 lbs. People think it's weird I don't like to eat in front of strangers and assume I have some sort of eating disorder. I actually had some psychologist lady argue with me over it...
