Something different. Thinner Isn't Better!

This is from and article in the Times- 2 December 2003, that I really love. I thought i would put it out there for everyone to read:

"Whoever said "You can never be too rich or too thin" was wrong I have no experience of the too rich part, but you can certainly be too thin. I know, because i am.

At 5ft 8in tall and 7st 12lb, I have what is supposed to be the perfect model figure. But the thing is that on a normal human being it is not perfect at all. I am a "bag of bones", to quote my stepmother, " far too thin", to quote my father, "too bony to cuddle", according to a young  cousin for whom I babysat the other evening.

I didn't get this thin deliberatley. I have been through a very stressful period in my life and have lost a stone as a result. I have gone from being a size 10 to no size at all, because nothing fits me anymore. My breasts have shrunk, the layer of padding I had around my tummy has vanished, my hipbones jut out alarmingly, and you can see my ribs. Now that it has gone, I truly miss the softness and fullness of my body as it used to be and i want it back."
