Comment, like, share this story. Isabel was a confident girl. She loved herself, in a good way, and she felt like she had her life under control and moving in the right direction, and, she felt skinny - underweight actually - which at her school and with her friends was really important (much more important than it should have been). At her school being skinny and underweight was normal, like you needed to be skinny and underweight to be perfect - perfect equals beautiful, and who doesn't want to be perfectly beautiful, right? Gaunt, thin, boney. So, after her doctor told her that her BMI (Body Mass Index) indicated being underweight, she was like "yeah! I got this!" So, one day, at lunch with her friends, she told them "My doctor says I'm underweight and I'm really happy about that!" BUT, one of her so-called friends said "Uh, really? Are you sure you're underweight?" And then she asked Isabel how much she weighed - NOT COOL! Isabel froze, she didn't want to say how much she weighed, and she could tell that the conversation was going somewhere mean and not nice. She tried to change the subject but her "friends" wouldn't let it go, wouldn't drop it. She finally just told them what the scale told her that morning and her friends were mean and insulting - one of them said "Umm, I'm not sure that's underweight" The rest of them joined in, saying "yeah, that's not skinny," and " that sounds like it's just average." And, in her school, the word "average" was like an insult of the worst kind. There, being underweight means you're beautiful, and being average means you're not, it means your fat, or your ugly. They just body-shamed her as much as they could. From that day on, for months, Isabel always looked in the mirror, any reflection she caught of herself she saw an average person, an overweight person, an imperfect person. She wasn't confident anymore. All she saw were faults, flaws and imperfections. She thought her face was too round, her belly stuck way out, her thighs were huge, her butt was huge, and her arms were fat. One day - even though she was perfectly beautiful - she looked in the mirror and said "I NEED TO LOSE WEIGHT." She started dieting, restricting her eating, and skipped meals. She skipped breakfast, and lunch, and sometimes even dinner. Not only did she start losing weight, but she also lost all of her muscles, and all of her energy and strength. She couldn't even do her push-ups at Tae Kwon Do, and her ribs started to show, and even though it looked like she was sick, to her, finally, she felt like she was starting to look normal. She had convinced herself that having your ribs poke out, and arms like sticks, and bony legs, and sharp features was perfect. And, even though she was told that she was making herself sick, and even though she had to start eating again to have enough energy to make it through each day, still, in the back of her mind those terrible voices kept saying "you're fat," and "you're not pretty." "I was never skinny enough," she sadly thought. Was she getting the skinny disease? Anorexia? After watching some positive YouTube videos and listening to the people who actually loved and cared about her, she started to realize that EVERY BODY IS BEAUTIFUL. Just because some girls have tiny little waists, or skinny little arms, or long slim faces, that didn't mean that she needed to have those. No, Isabel realized that being unique is beautiful, that beauty is the whole package, the person, the heart and soul and not just the body and some idea that other people plant in your head. "Even though I may not look perfect, I am normal." Isabel realized, once and for all, YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE SKINNY TO BE BEAUTIFUL! What's your story? storybooth wants to hear it! It's Storytime.

Fact: If you’re like a tall person for a grade 6 and you’re 115 pounds, that’s not fat. You’re just tall. Of course you’re going to have to earn more pounds because you’re getting taller. Not losing weight because you’re getting taller.

Being non-skinning is fuckin’ nothing. AT LEAST YOU’RE NOT ACTUALLY UGLY, FOR FUCKS SAKE. Pretty people that’re fat(Like Amy Shumer) could lose weight and look good.
Okie this is nice and all, BUT WHO THE HELL WERE THOSE GIRLS BEING LIKE "are you sure that's underweight?" "That's average" how could anyone say that?
Eh it's not just you I'm severely underweight

I'm a little okay with my body but I just don't like my face. It's seems ugly and most of my bffs have boyfriends/girlfriends and I feel very outcast because they are mostly light skin and I am kinda dark to the point u can't really see my face in pictures and I just don't understand that cuz I got most of my genes from my dad and he is lighter than me. Out in public with my mom and my older brother I feel even more lonely cuz like I am chubbier than my mom and brother. I don't look like them that much. My mom was introducing her coworker to my brother and I. She looked at me then at my brother and said, "That ones yours." My mom didn't notice it but I was very hurt. I'm very good about hiding my feelings so no one notices how apart I feel. And for my friends that are dark skinned like me just have pretty faces that just glow. Mine is ugly and unwanted. I know maybe someone will love me but I feel like I'm gonna die alone...

No matter what you are unique! DON'T LET ANYONE JUDGE YOU!
It's good to be a little bit fat, cuz then you'll have more damage resistance, I know that may not make any sense at first, but if you think about it, it makes sense, because the more fat you have on you, the harder it takes for attacks to get to the stuff underneath your skin

I am 12 and ik I am underweight...and I am only 28 kg...but you don’t need to be skinny to be beautiful, I am skinny but don’t think of myself as pretty

I can agree to this so much, a couple months ago, I realized that I wasn’t skinny, I was average. I keep trying to lose weight, but only lost 5lbs. When I started eating normal again I started cutting and now I don’t know what to do anymore...I’m down to 83lbs (I’m 4’11) and I don’t know why but this voice in my head keeps saying I’m fat and that I HAVE to get to at least 79lbs to look beautiful.
