For those of you who were skinny in childhood and adolescence or even early adulthood, are you glad you’re not skinny/slender anymore?

I’m petite and 5’0” and slim. I didn’t start filling my it until I was about 16 or 17 and I was THRILLED! I had a booty and hips and my thighs got thicker! I didn’t get boobs until I was 14! I HATED being skinny! It sucked. Some bigger girls may be surprised that being thin isn’t all that great. I’ve always envied thicker, curvier girls and most guys prefer girls with that figure. I’m still small but I’m thicker than I really am. Thank you puberty for making for filling me up! I went from 84lbs to 114-117lbs. I never want to be thin again. Not every girl or woman wants to be thin. I mean why would they? Not that there’s anything wrong with being thin.

I love my slim body but I love my curves.

[@1140188,Candie] Me too. I love my curves but I love being slender too.

[@1184578,JulesKittyKat] Yes! Curves have nothing to do with being thick/overweight. It's ratios.

[@1173,Magenta] so true

No, I love being slender. I like how it feels and looks. Plus I love the agility.
Course I'm not as slim as when I was an adolescent. I was a late bloomer too.

[@1173,Magenta] The agility is actually what I noticed when I took off some weight. Of course I now work out, so building some muscle has made a huge difference in the pain I was having in my back and joints.

I absolutely remember being too thin and being frustrated that I didn't seem to hit puberty when all my peers were hitting it. I finally got some curves after I had my children, but was still considered slim. It would only be after menopause that I actually had to start working out and eating right to keep a slim figure.

I am grateful for it.

[@711251,Peapod] That’s great! I still love my slim figure but I love my curves!

[@1184578,JulesKittyKat] It is a blessing to have a nice figure. So many people are truly overweight and it has to be really hard.

[@711251,Peapod] tell me about it and people are praising obesity and that’s not good.
When I look back at photos of me when I was younger I consider myself skinny but I didn't think I was then. Now I'm bigger and I'm not really glad I'm where I am. If I could trim down a couple of sizes I feel like I would feel better in my body.

I'm still very thin. I wouldn't pork-up for all the money in the world.[/c]

I miss it. But not enough to go on a diet
