Good grief.

I’m not a big believer in “anything to be thin.”

That feeding tube thing literally disturbs me.

I had to stop reading because I was getting grossed out.

I mean, c’mon, if you really want to lose weight, do it the healthy way! Don’t endanger your life just because you want to be skinnier.

Shes getting married in Argentina….haha go figure. They are extremely weight conscious there. They have no problem telling people they are “fat” or getting “fat” right to your face -stranger or friend 😉

Yea, I have read a few posts on the Hive today about this!

Its definitely not for me.

Ewwwww!!  I would rather eat nothing but brussels sprouts and overcooked cabbage every day than “eat” through a tube shoved down my nose/throat!  That is seriously disturbing.

I saw this on the news today. Personally, I wouldn’t participate in it but I’m sure other people wouldn’t have a problem with it. Yet, I just can’t justify altering my body that way for a dress I will wear for only a few hours.

I read about this today, and find it mind boggling.  Whatever, ladies, it’s their bodies, they can do what they want with them.  If they get complications from this sort of thing, I have no sympathy for them.  That sort of procedure is no picnic, as people who’ve had to feed like this for real medical reasons could tell you.  Why anyone would put themselves through that for vanity…well, like I said, their bodies, their issues.


For what it’s worth, if I was one of these women’s Fi’s, I’d probably dump them over this looniness.

This is grotesque…..I can’t beleive these women have such twisted body images…thank you American Fashion mags!!!  What has happened to being happy with who you are???  I feel bad for these women that thier self-esteem is so hinged on thier weight.  Would I like to be thinner…yes….do I need to be thinner…Yes….does my Fiance love me anyway?? YEEESSSS.  I can’t beleive Docotors are willing to do this!!!

Ew!  I had to stop reading cause that grossed me out too.  Seriously, WHY?  If you’re going to starve yourself (and I’m NOT condoning that) just eat less.  Why pay all that money to have something shoved in your nose?  Ew ew ew

I love the line saying you can do it for the whole bridal party! 

If a bride EVER comes on the Bee saying how she wants to make her bridesmaids go on a feeding tube for 10 days, I’ll get banned for telling her how fcuking stupid she is. 

Seriously, what is wrong with people?!

That is so insane. Taking things too far, way to far!
