Is skinny TOO skinny?

You're guilty, I know. You are just like any other teenage girl, who reaches for the new issues of the hottest magazines to see what the latest trend is. But are girls finding the latest trends of being skinny as cool or IN?

I find this quite true. I see on TV all of these models or celebrities who have anorexia or are just unhealthily skinny. To be truthful, there is a difference between too thin and healthy. Magazines with these skinny figures on their covers are sending teenage girls the wrong message. They're showing that skinny will make you cool or hot, just like them. "If you are skinny and don’t eat you can look like me, and be cool!" Never mind them--we need to put an end to this, once and for all.

If this relates to you in any way all I can say is please, do not fall into this trap. You are gorgeous just the way you are. If you really think you need to loose weight, please do it in a healthy way. Talk to your doctor and family. Maintaining an unhealthy self-image is not worth risking your health over.

I would love to give you some tips, but that is up to you.

Stay gorgeous and remember people will love you for who you are. Don’t change for anyone, or they aren’t worth your time.

ulch. I knew about that nicole richie pic but that model really freaks me out. she looks like there simply is something missing to her body.
naive people would say it´s photoshopped.

Holly crap, Nicole looks like one of those kids you see on commercials to adopt kids in africa, wow, that's just really gross.

I absolutly dread how people are just wishing and desperatly trying to be skinny because they think it's pretty, I mean come on, there's a limit.
