How slim can you go?

A few days ago, I read The Sun newspaper about the X Factor judge Cheryl Cole. A reader wrote and commented Cheryl Cole must be in some kind of diet or weight loss pills in order to have that kind of figure. Cheryl Cole was on a sexy silver dress and the reader even said that he/she can actually count the number of bones that Cheryl Cole has. The reader added that there is no way anyone can have Cheryl Cole’s figure naturally and suggested that Cheryl Cole is a bad role model to the people whole idolize her.

Well, the first thing I thought of was it is possible to have someone with that kind of figure, naturally. I for example could not get any fatter no matter how much I eat. Of course, I believe that there are a lot of people out there who are quite the same as me. Cheryl Cole may or may not be one of the people but it just shows how ignorant people (the reader) can be.

    I agree with you. People can be ignorant, are at least thoughtless.

    A person should be considered a role model based on how they live, not their body type. If Cheryl Cole absolutely starves herself to death to look the way she looks, then she is not a good role model. However, if she is one of those people (like yourself) who simply cannot gain weight, then that’s just the way it is.

    We women have so many self image issues. People who are rail thin and cannot gain weight should be accepted the way they are just as people who struggle to lose weight should be accepted the way they are.

    I guess the problem is that other people assume the thin people are thin by choice. But that’s not alway the case!
