because there is a huge part of the media that portray skinny women as real women,a huge majority of women in the media are very thin so that puts pressure on every woman to be 'normal' like them, its a backlash against that saying look your healthy beautiful and have curves and that's ok,women think there not normal or fat because they are shapely,
but i think its all PC bull and taken too far when it goes into this 'real' woman thing, i know girls who are very thin naturally who dont have huge breasts or hips and dont feel very womanly because of it, there are other woman who dont have a svelte stomach and arms and dont feel womanly, all these size 12 real women are so toned on the tv,like the real women dove models, its all a marketing ploy!! even Kellogg's special K now have this amazingly fit size 10/12 model making us feel that we have to conform to this,maybe its alot closer to a size 16 to diet down than to get to a size 8 so more people will be taken in by this 2 weeks Challenge, while in the world of celeb when celebs put on weight and are a size 10/12 they complain about being fat and are called fat, so whats a girl to think
I think if you are extremely unhealthy either underweight or overweight you shouldn't be praised,why would anyone be praised for putting there health in danger, most women in the UK are size 14/16 which is not healthy but that's averages and 'normal' so is that then real?
The media are always going to be pushing some ideal onto us and making us feel bad so we'll buy into it its how marketing works, dont let anyone make you think your not beautiful
