    I'm 5'9" and 115 pounds.

    I always get harassed for being so skinny. People have been telling me since middle school that I "do pills" or "am totally anorexic." Hello, world, not all skinny people have eating disorders! And some of friends who aren't skinny (not fat, average) always talk to me about how...

    Tall, And Shamefully Skinny.

    I am just an average 13 year old boy. I play sports, I go places with friends, and I spend a lot of time using my electronics. Seems pretty average to you, right? Well you're wrong. I'm 13, but I'm the height of the average 18 year old, I'm 5'11". Oh, and I consume about 3,000...

    5'10" 100 Lb , People Mistake You For A Twig.

    5'10" and 100 lb. I look like a twig. And whatever I do, I can't seem to gain weight at all. Fine, maybe I'll bear with my height, but seriously I want to gain weight. Curse fast metabolism rates.

    Quite Like It Anyway

    I wouldn't say i'm that tall, i am about 5'7, which is above average for a girl but every year girls seem to get taller. When i'm a biddy and only shrunk by a few inches, young girls my age today could probably be a full foot taller. Which is scary as i could never imagine what...

    The Origin Of Self Body Hate And How To Love Your Body

    I believe the hatred about my skinny build from my parents was from the fact my mother and my dad's mother likely had a history of sexual abuse which led to severe body shame about their own bodies which in turn was passed down to me.  I do not believe my brothers and I were...

    I Became 5inch Tall Within A Month.

    Yes, I would always pray with God that "please increase my height,please" from such a long time. Finally God heard my prayer and where I was 5.2 inch tall on October 2013 ,I became 5 inch tall in November 2013. Isn't that a miracle? I love you God. Thank you.

    I actually weigh quite a bit

    when you look at the number but being so tall I always look very skinny... And even though I'm gaining weight I'm getting taller faster than it can catch up.
