I have an older sister who has always been super skinny. She never has to work out and she can eat whatever she wants.
She obviously got the skinny genes and it drives me nuts. I have to bust my butt in the gym and religiously count calories to make the scale budge.
Anyone else have a sibling who got all the good skinny genes?

I do! But my Dad used to say ” Don’t worry. When God asked who wanted brains, she thought he said trains, and she didn’t want any”.

UGH YES. My sister is 5 years older than me (32) and has yet to have her metabolism slow down (I would comfort myself when we were younger by saying it would catch up to her some day). She eats nothing but frozen pizza and fast food/takeout and hasn’t been to the gym in years. She’s a size 2! I work out 3-4x a week and limit my calorie intake just to MAINTAIN my size 8. I want to stab her with a fork every time she claims to be “fat” when she’s around me. Ok, not really, I love her. But still!
ETA: Bright side! I got the boobs. :p

@coolbride125: I got the skinny genes but my sister got all the other good stuff! She has a small nose and got the big German schnoz, she never needed braces, she can sing. I pretty much have no talent! Everyone will always possess something you want. But chances are those people see something in you they wish they had too. Don’t sweat it.

Here! My sister got the skinny genes and I got the… opposite. We’re 3 years apart… and when we were little, people would buy us hideous matching outfits that were the SAME size. We’re talking 9 year old and 6 year old. I remember her being distraught over being a size 4 in a pair of jeans once and was disgusted 😛 She’s 5’9″!

Haha my sister is super skinny, really smart (she interviewed for Jeopardy!) AND can sing.
At least I’m getting married first. Right? RIGHT?!
lol it’s a good think I really like her or I’d have to really, really hate her, if you know what I mean.
