That’s why you have to love grandmothers – mine totally made a similar comment once to my mom “She’s looking a little scrawny – she’d look better if she gained a little weight.” At the time, I was playing varsity tennis and in super shape – just not the shape grandma wanted to see me in. Smile

Sounds like a grammy comment to me! Mine are totally against the whole “athletic, strong woman” look (my legs are muscular so that’s gross?) like it’s unfeminine. I had a friend tell me this once and it was in an offensive way but if a grandma said that, it’d just be kinda random I guess! I guess if you think about it–women back then didn’t really work out so I guess it makes sense as to what their idea of healthy/best looking is compared to ours???? America today is all about having the yoga body, right?

My fam told me the same thing! I’m a tall girl, and for the LONGEST time I had these chicken legs! LOL but finally I thickened up a little bit and put a little bit of fat on me…my fam tells me I look great! If I gain any more weight though, I’ll shoot myself!

125 is a good weight! I weigh right at 130!
