how to be skinny

...without being called an anorexic? Is there a way to do this- I want to be thing, but Calista Flockhart thin. Just nice and lean. However, I feel there is actually more stigma being underweight than overweight!!

there's stigma to being underweight and proud of it. Or with thinking underweight is attractive.

Arguably using "nice" to describe Flockharts anorexic look would be indicative of some body issues.

I so often wonder why more women don't see a counselor for body image issues... thinking anorexic looking is attractive isn't a healthy mental attitude.

I personally really love the bodies of muscular, athletic females...or athletic celebrities, which the only one I can think of is Jessica Biel. I think it's hot when females have muscle. I'm probably one of the few girls out there who like this look and want this look. I weight train and exercise not just to be "toned" but to build muscle.

I find it funny when many female health and fitness magazines often have "fitness" models whom are a bit on the skinny side!

If you're looking for encouragement or sympathy for the plight of scrawny women who look about 100 calories away from needing life support, you might be on the wrong site.
