LeAnn Rimes: I'm not 'scary skinny'

What should have been a beautiful belated honeymoon turned into a bit of drama for LeAnn Rimes.

Vacationing in Mexico with hubby Eddie Cibrian, Rimes shared her bliss with her Twitter followers, posting a photo of herself on the beach in a blue bikini on Sunday.

Shortly afterward, fans began commenting on her thin frame, with one noting, "Whoa, you're scary skinny! Sorry don't mean to offend but that's a lot of bones showing through skin..."

Rimes fired back and gave the critic the skinny.

"Those are called abs, not bones, love," wrote the singer, who wed Cibrian in April. "This is my body and I can promise you I'm a healthy girl. I'm just lean. Thx for your concern but no need to be."

    Man, she does look a little thin. At least it's not a controversy over cosmetic surgery. I feel like that's usually the first leap that the media makes when we see celebs with anything particular about their body. Maybe she needs to eat more or less, but I also don't see how that's our issue to discuss.

    Insecurity is written all over this poor girl. Leanne, you are way to skinny. There was a group of my friends ( two women and 8 men) one picked up a mag with a pic of you and every man there said you were way to skinny and not attractive at all. Not trying to be mean but you put yourself out there and flaunt yourself to be judged. Oh, and two guys in this group are fitness instructors.

    It's scary that some people here contend those who believe LeeAnn is too thin are "just jealous". There is nothing here to be jealous of – I know that if I woke up tomorrow morning looking like her, I would scream. Maintaining a body in that condition takes at the very least an extremely rigid and obsessive routine, one that likely borders on an eating disorder. Her appearance is not natural and is sure as hell not the result of healthy eating and exercise. It's obvious she has a problem, whether it's food obsession, exercise compulsion, or an eating disorder. There's no way you can stay looking like that and not be doing something extremely drastic.

    Anyone remember Calista Flockhart? Couldn't understand the fuss then,especially after seeing her do one hand pullups .LeAnn just looks healthy, though maybe not a bodybuilder. Probably looks better than 95 out of 100 that criticize her appearance though.

    She looks way better now than when she was chubby. Why does everyone suspect eating disorder when someone is just a few pounds underweight. Eating disorders come in all sizes and shapes and most of the fatties that are saying she is too skinny are obsessed with weight and food themselves. Leave her alone everyone is different, I don't think she is dangerously skinny. She looks like she has been working out.

    So would she refer to those side ribs showing as "abs". Or how about those pelvic bones? They're showing rather 'well'.

    "Eyebrow-raisingly skinny", or perhaps "Head shakingly skinny", yes. "Scary skinny"? Not quite yet, but close.

    Speaking AS A FAT PERSON who has previously been thin: LAR looks more or less what I've become accustomed to as being 'normal'. All of my aunts were 5'7-5'10 and not a single one of them weighed more than 130lbs. My grandmother was the same until she hit her 60's. My mother was until her husband passed away: She consoled herself with food.

    Personally, I am 5'7. Until I got married and moved away (along with a huge lifestyle change that came with medical issues NOT related to my size of the time) I was all of 130-135lbs. Supposedly this is underweight for someone my height, but honestly, I was active, I ate plenty of healthy, local foods and stayed outside from 10AM until dark.

    For those of you bellowing about how it's only the "fatties" and the "uglies" going on about LAR's size because they think being fat is the norm, I think you might be mistaking.

    I think it looks more disturbing to some because they honestly don't find it attractive, just as I don't find a 200pound body builder in contest condition attractive. It sickens me, not because he is unhealthy, but because it's not something I like. I say that a body builder in contest shape *looks* unhealthy because their BF% is too low. It makes me shudder to think about the things that tearing down to that kind of % must be doing to their body.

    It's the same with this young woman, I personally think her BF% must be rather low... but not *too* low because... Well, You can see she has abs, but there's not enough definition in them to consider a minuscule BF%.

    Personal opinion from a local fattie: She looks fine. I don't think she's all that attractive to begin with, and no, I don't think her body size is unusual.

    it's funny that most comments of her looking good are coming from men

    the women are concerned for her because they know how much pressure society places on them to be thin.

    She was never "chubby" and has always been pretty, it would be a shame to see her lose any more weight!

    I'm sorry but if your elbow bones are wider than your arm.....and you have to breasts....you should stop losing weight.

    She is NOT "naturally lean". Has anyone actually seen pictures of her over the years? She used to be a healthy weight and looked normal – nothing like the way she looks now. This is fairly typical obsessive-compulsive behavior on the part of cheaters for whom the other man or woman becomes like a drug. What she's doing is frantically trying to look as good as she can so that her drug (philandering husband) doesn't leave her like he left his last wife. It's fear-based. Her defensiveness is a result of her denial, rationalization, and lack of self-awareness.

    In the photo above she looks skinny. She once was rather plump. Seems like she has gone and done a 180 plus! Why would someone post a photo of themselves at the beach! That is pretty self-centered and showing a lot of egotism. Her head has always looked too big for her body. Now that she is skinny she is beginning to look like an alien! She can go around talking all she wants about "abs" and being in the best of health, but the reality of it is look at her shoulders, arms and breast bone. Then look at her legs. Before she became well known is when she probably looked the best. She had some meat on her bones and look pretty good. I have nothing against heavy people or thin people. The problem lies in the extremes of heavy and thin. In my opinion, she is too thin. If you go to this site you can see what she looked like now and then.. http://connect.in.com/leann-rimes/images-leann-rimes-foto-0-leann-rimes-foto-leann-rimes-1-892777400498.html When did she have the fakes put in? Photo #6 is a good look. I don't see any abs just a little tummy and some ribs. However, if she is fine with it and her husband doesn't care, then its her life.

    I can't believe how awful people can be. You can't be overweight, people think that it's ok to say awful things about the looks and perceived habits of anyone who is even slightly larger than a size 4. But then, god forbid you are a skinny person, who might possibly maybe, potentially be anorexic, people feel like they can just say whatever they want about you too. So really, there is no safe weight or body type to be when you are a woman, somebody somewhere is going to have something awful to say about you and feel like it is justified. And god forbid you pass the age of 40, then a whole new world of insults is opened up for you. I couldn't believe the things people said about Cindy Crawford. People need to remember the old saying that if you can't say something nice don't say anything at all or that people who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones. I guess all you people that have nasty things to say are just too perfect for words, and all of you throwing back handed complements saying anyone who insults celebrity X must be ugly or fat sound like wonderful people to be around too. Basically everyone who takes the time to make an awful comment about someone else seems petty and nasty no matter if it is directed to other posters or to the celebrity.

    Yes, being overweight is unhealthy, but so is being underweight. People discriminate much more toward overweight people, but that doesn’t mean that being extremely skinny is a healthy alternative. OBVIOUSLY, LeAnn Rimes is way underweight for her height and her natural body weight. If you can’t see that then your perception of reality is really skewed.

Now in all fairness the angle of the camera could be off but her arms look off too.

    I'm 5'71/2 and 2 yrs ago went down to 90 pounds due to emergency surgery and had to be tube fed for a month. So I can def tell you LeAnn is too thin. I looked approx same size as she does now. I saw her perform last year in our little town in Canada and her heart was not in her singing on stage. Several people walked out. She has an amazing voice but she is SO obsessed with this guy; I see a huge fall coming followed by a tell-all book. Her career has been reduced to working casinos and small town rodeos. She just doesn't care anymore.

    It may be "normal" to be unable locate a single bone in your body without digging for it, but that does not make it natural or healthy. Haven't you ever SEEN someone with a natural body weight before? Or a picture of a real underweight person? (Hint: Starving people have visible rib *bones*, not visible oblique muscles. The distinction may be lost upon those of you who expect to see nothing but a smooth plane of fat). If you think someone is underweight because they can locate a few major bones and muscles you are manifestly in no position to judge this thin (but well within the healthy range) woman. She does not deserve to be heckled by a bunch of condescending, probably-obese ignoramuses.

    It's nice to know that the majority of men out there like their women built like women – not like skinny boys with breasts. (mostly fake ones, because once you loose too much fat, breasts can't naturally be that big).

    I looked up that bikini picture. She is definitely slim, even thin. She is NOT anorexic. As an Physician Assistant, I looked carefully at the picture above. Especially the places where ribs meet the sternum. Also at the clavicle. Thighs, arms. She is thinner than I've seen her before. But she's ok.
    I'm glad that so many are alert to the threat of anorexia. But please... back off LeAnn. I'm sure she'll gain a few pounds if left alone. She doesn't need to gain but a very few.

    The fact that if someone is skinny they are sick or if someone is chubby they eat to much is part of what is wrong with our Nation.
    Instead of worryng about what others look like we need to worry about ourselves.
    If someone is skinny and they feel they look good. GREAT If someone is chubby and feels they look good GREAT.
    But look at your own self and say that beauty comes from within not my skin. Hello we may all be a little better off.
    And trust me I have family that are both skinny and chubby and sickness does not care what size you are.
    So Let the woman be small,skinny,well fit whatever she wants to call herself and judge yourself not others.

    I finally checked out the photos, and my verdict is that she is not too skinny, but would look better with an extra 10-15 pounds. She appears to have lost weight since she was on the cover of Fitness (if I remember the magazine correctly), and she did look healthier when she was on the cover than she does now. IF she was truly 'scary skinny' we would see more ribs and her back would look bony. But with her hipbone sticking out, she is on the bottom side of the healthy weight/bmi scale. If she continues this weight-loss trend she WILL be unhealthily skinny.

    Being fat is not healthy. Big large and in charge is not healthy. Being proud of your large curves is not healthy. It is you trying to rationalize your unhealthy eating habits and lifestyle. BTW it is not a genetic disorder, it is caloric intake.

    The issue here is the pressure that people put on celebrities to look perfect. Most female entertainers have only a 15-20 pound window of what the entertainment industry thinks they should weigh. Its like a size 0 in clothing is too skinny and a size 4 is too fat. If they weigh over 115-120 pounds (depending on height) the tabloids are all over it, even though for some of them that weight is on the low side of a healthy weight window. Then when they lose 15-20 pounds and get under 100 pounds they actually are unhealthy. The fact of the matter is that for most women 140-150 pounds is still in the healthy range – it all depends on height. However, in the entertainment industry, 130-135 pounds is considered fat and/or plus size.

    I'm quite surprised at the disappointing judgements being made here (and on her picture pages). For pete's sake, she takes care of herself, eats healthfully, and obviously exercises. You can see muscles in her legs, arms, and obliques. This is what people who take care of themselves can look like if they already were naturally lean. I've always been lean, you can always see my hipbones and some lower ribs, even when I eat like crap for months and never exercise. Then when I eat CORRECTLY and work out at a reasonable amount (run 10 miles/week and strength train, yoga several times per week, I get more defined and you can see those things even more prominently. Granted, some are naturally a little thicker, so they may never look like this unless they starve themselves. As for Leann, as far as I can recall, she's always appeared relatively lean; so she likely falls in the first group I spoke of.

    For those who can't 'stomach' a thin girl – you should probably stay in America where you're comfortable. Don't go to Europe where there aren't overweight folks. You may freak out!

    I'm not sure if she is "scary" skinny, but she is definitely treading pretty close to the line between fit and gone too far. Remember that photos tend to make people look bigger than they really are, so when someone looks tiny in a photo it is a little concerning. It is beginning to make her look a little frail. It's not like that weight is a result of a natural metabolism because she weighed more until just recently (and she looked healthy then). Plus her face is starting to look a bit gaunt as well. So while not necessarily scary, she needs to be careful.

    When she goes out to a club and does some dancing, her beau needs to feed her a couple of Carl Jrs.

    We often want to pass our judgment of others' bodies off as "concern" and that's why Leanne is being super-defensive.

When she did the cover of SHAPE magazine recently, she looked toned & fit & healthy. Maybe people around her are encouraging her to be this way by telling her how "GREAT" she looks.

      There is no such thing as "super in shape". Either you're healthy and in shape or you're not, be it you're too heavy or too skinny, and she is too skinny.

    LeAnn looks great. She only seems "scary skinny" when compared with today's average American, who is solidly obese. The fact is that thin is very healthy and beautiful, while excess weight is highly detrimental to health and ugly.

    OK, I looked at the bikini pictures. See the muscle tone in those legs and arms? This is what a healthy athletic person looks like. Calling it "scary" or "unhealthy" just shows how fat and stupid people have become.

      You truly hit the nail on the head. And the liberal American media only makes things worse (as usual) by glorifying the obese and demonizing the thin and fit whenever possible.

      Sorry, William, but how on earth does the american media demonize thin people? And how are obese people glorified? Open any magazine, watch any tv show, news show, movie, commerical, billboard, print ad, etc. and tell me how obese people are glorified? Even on tv shows ABOUT obese people, they are shown as miserable people unhappy with themselves and their lives. Nowhere in American media are they "glorified." If anything, being healthy, fit and thin is what is portrayed on TV. Take a good hard look at the food industry and people's refusal to educate themselves on what they're really eating before making an obviously disillusioned claim like that.

    The general public is really unaware of the severity of eating disorders. People who are literally dying get almost no intervention. It is now almost ok to be morbidly obese. Some one that is 150 pounds+ overweight is equivalent to a wino living under a bridge ~ emotionally and psychologically ~ and yet most of their friends do nothing.

    I worked once for a center of Hazelden, the supposed "premier" in the field of addictions. A fellow therapist was becoming so thin it was horrible. I tried to get senior clinical management to intervene and they told me I was being foolish. When her electorlytes finally flipped and she went into cardiac arrest and died they finally noticed.

    It's sad how many people assume that everyone calling her out on being unhealthily skinny must be some jealous, overweight girl. I'm a small women, and I've always been told that I'm skinny (but never unhealthily skinny), I wear a size 00, and weigh 105 lbs. But for my height and bone structure, that's a healthy weight for me, and my BMI is a very healthy 20.0. Even when I was five pounds lighter two years ago (and getting close to the minimum healthy BMI) due to school leaving me too busy to eat proper meals, my hip bones never, ever protruded, and I never had the gaunt look that she has now. This woman is terribly unhealthy, and it's disturbing how many people think she looks hot and healthy.

    To put things into perspective, she isn't 'too skinny' until she develops a medical condition from malnutrition. Otherwise, she can be considered as a healthy person.

    I am so sick of people feeling that weight is the one thing they have free reign to comment on!! As someone who has faced the same criticism at times, I am disgusted at you all. How many of you are the exact weight you are supposed to be? In fact, we have no IDEA what our 'normal' weight is – they only use the word 'average.' This reflects the median weight of a society that eats almost no 'real' food. Virtually everything you purchase in an American grocery store is either full of chemicals, also known as 'high fructose corn syrup', pumped with growth hormones or genetically modified (GMO), meaning there are PESTICIDES added directly to the seed...this includes cereals, a staple in the American diet, and everything else that has corn, soy, etc. Just because some of us choose to avoid these deadly options and support our local farmers markets and butchers, does not mean we are unhealthy. QUITE THE OPPOSITE!!!

    This is a beautiful girl, enjoying her honeymoon. Anyone who has a comment on that is clearly unhappy with their own weight or appearance. She looks both happy and healthy!!!!!

    Over the past 30 years, the average weight for an adult American has increased by 20 pounds. The result: people are so damned fat that when they see someone who's in the lower end of the normal weight range from 30 years ago, they think she's anorexic.

    While I don't think she's "scary skinny"...yet, she's definitely headed in that direction. It would be different if she were that skinny and had more muscle mass (athletic body), but she does look like she's more and more emaciated each month we see her in the news. It's definitely noticeable because LeAnn doesn't have a face that looks well if she's too skinny, which she definitely is now and actually, her thinner frame makes her look a lot older than she really is.

She is lean, and she is fit ... the only problem is that people in America aren't used to seeing lean and fit girls... so it's "SCARY", the same way blacks were "scary" at first because people weren't used to seeing things that are different from them.

    If you're happy being fat, then be it. But as someone who knows a great deal about anatomy and nutrition, I will tell you that she is NOT skinny.... unless you also want to say that the whole population of China is SCARY SKINNY.. They are just build like that.

    One person on this comment site quoted the health statistics for obesity. Let me quote some facts on anorexia and bulimia;
    8 million Americans suffer from anorexia/bulimia. 7 million women, 1 million men. The costs of treating this disease are so staggering that many can't afford treatment. Anorexia/Bulimia is the most expensive mental health disorder to treat. Anorexia/Bulimia has the highest mortality rate of any mental health disorder including suicide. 80% of American 13 year olds have dieted. 93% of women/men treated for Anorexia/Bulimia will need to enter treatment again. Obsession with working out and looking like a particular pop star has become commonplace in America. Women/men who work out 6 days a week actually have a mental disorder called Body Dysmorphic Disorder. Wake up!!!!! This woman looks unhealthy!!!

    • KD

      Body Dysmorphic Disorder is far more than how long you work out for or how many days. Under the definition you just gave, every professional athlete has BDD. If you look at Heidi Montag (well, thankfully she's disappeared lately, but her before and after multiple plastic surgeries...) THAT is BDD. BDD is a disconnect between what you look like and what you think you look like, and a neverending mission to 'fix' things that realistically aren't even an issue (such as an anorexic looking in the mirror and seeing a fat person).
      There is a classification of overexercising that is an eating disorder, but there are qualifiers. Training for athletic events, working out as part of a health program, etc can be valid (and non-disorder) reasons for that level of exercise.
      As far as LeAnn, it *appears* that she has lost too much weight and may have an eating disorder, and seems even more likely since she started dropping pounds fast after her affair.

Like LeAnn, she got super skinny for the love of a man she felt unworthy of; in reality, he was unworthy of her. Like LeAnn, she said it was 'to be healthy'. Like LeAnn, got breast implants. When she passed away, she weighed 58 lbs and left behind a teenage son.

    She's not yet dangerously skinny, more like not good skinny, and that's for sure. Check out the hip bones.

    Healthy for women means that there is a certain amount of padding, need that fat layer to produce hormones for normal physiological functioning. And those with eating disorders or leaning towards anorexia never can see what the observer can see. You don't have to be 'fat', but you have to have an appropriate BMI. Would bet money that her numbers are either under the line of healthy or right on the knife's edge.

They want special dispensation because they take up too much room on an airplane but you don't see lean folks insisting that they only pay a fraction of the ticket price because they weigh so little and therefore save fuel.

    She's borderline emancipated. Hollywood and the media attempt to brainwash folks into thinking skinny is attractive and healthy. This isn't always true, especially in Lee Ann Rimes' case. If you can move normally and do life's necessary tasks without struggle, then you are healthy. Being chubby never hurt anyone. If you are happy with the way you look, then nobody else truly matters.

    "Those are called abs, not bones, love." Ohhh, so those aren't pelvic bones sticking out?!? When even the bones in her forearms are clearly visible...that should raise a red flag for those closest to her if she can't see it herself. No one is saying she should eat a ton to be more curvy, but it certainly couldn't hurt to put on a few more pounds. Maybe she is really fit, but she's bordering the scary skinny line.

      It figures someone would have to bring this up. No, not everyone who would label her as scary skinny is overweight. As a matter of fact, I've been told lately I'm too skinny after having my second child...and I'm 130 lbs and average height for a woman. There's a difference between a nicely toned midsection where you can see the subtle outline of the pelvic bones and having them just sticking out. It couldn't hurt to tone down the exercise a notch and/or add a little more food to her daily diet.

      Like she says, she's lean. I sincerely doubt most of the people commenting on her physique would consider themselves lean. I think most people are remembering that round-faced girl from a decade or two ago, not considering she's aged and lost the baby fat. By comparison, Nicole Ritchie was scary skinny. LeAnn looks healthy to me. For what it's worth she'd probably look healthy with a few more pounds on her, too. She's certainly closer to one extreme than the other but if she feels good, emotionally and physically, who are we to judge?

      She would look exactly like Nicole Ritchie if she hadn't gotten implants. Then you'd be singing a different tune I bet!

Take a look for a picture of her husbands ex-wife, its like they are competing in some sick fashion. I have no issue with anyone being in shape, thin, lean, skinny, whatever, but when it starts being excessive, its time to worry.

      I agree with Lloyd. She really isn't THAT skinny. Angelina Jolie is much worse for the wear. I don't get why we think she is SO skinny, just because we're use to seeing her heavier for most of her life. I think her body is perfect on the BMI index, as long as she doesn't lose anymore weight. I'd like to add that she can lose all the weight she wants to but she can't change her bone structure! That boy waist is appauling yucko. And don't give me that "international guys aren't shallow" crap because they are MORE shallow than most American men! Hence the reason for the lean Mediterranean lifestyle in the first place. At the end of the day LeAnn will get what's coming to her. She is insecure for a reason and that reason is her wandering beau who wasn't hers in the first place. I don't have anything against cheaters personally but once a cheater always a cheater! She wants to stay in shape so his eyes don't wander. We can only hope she's staying fit for herself and not some man.

      I just looked at the bikini picture and some of you really need an anatomy and physiology class, or at least you need to look up the musculature of humans. What you are seeing is her lats, and they are accentuated by the way she is standing. That's not her "hip bones sticking out"! What is the problem with some of you constantly harping on LeeAnn losing weight and working out, and then you always have to make some comment about Angelina Jolie. AJ is slender, just like Angie Harmon, period. Both keep themselves in good physical condition and don't eat as if food will disappear tomorrow. They both look pretty much the same, yet no one complains about Angie Harmon's size. You need to worry a bit more about how healthy YOU are, how much YOU weigh, and whether or not YOU have the correct body fat, and leave these people alone.

      I can understand the concern. LeeAnn spent most of her life as a chubby young lady. When she'd hit her 20's, she slender'ed up and looked great. However, over the past year and a half, her appearance is becoming beyond waif-like. She does have an exercise regimen that is pretty intense, but intense exercise usually leads to strong muscle tone. (Kelly Ripa, anyone?)

    Well, I think part of the problem is that America is getting so overweight that our view of what's thin and average is skewed. When most people are significantly overweight or obese, someone who is "only" slightly overweight suddenly looks like a more healthy person. If you put a lean person next to them, she's going to look anorexic. In the past, we may have just thought she was on the thinner side. It's scary to look at old black and white family photos and compare those to how families look today. Not a good trend.

      Yes there is a problem with weight compared to years ago, but that goes both ways. You have seriously overweight people and seriously underweight people. When someone's pelvic bones and ribs are sticking out, that's a sign of being underweight. Maybe she does have a lean body without trying, but there's a difference between lean and sickly. I wouldn't say she was sickly, but she is teetering on the edge of looking that way.

      Elizabeth, perhaps too many Americans are overweight and obese but this does not change the fact that this woman looks anorexic. Her bones are protruding and her face has orbital bone protrusion and looks unhealthy. Nobody is saying that she must gain 100 lbs. but really, she is extremely underweight. She may say she doesn't need help but many anorexic and bulimia patients live their entire short lives in denial. There is nothing wrong with being a healthy weight and there is nothing wrong with being a tad underweight. This is neither.

She is lean, and she is fit ... the only problem is that people in America aren't used to seeing lean and fit girls... so it's "SCARY", the same way blacks were "scary" at first because people weren't used to seeing things that are different from them.

      If you're happy being fat, then be it. But as someone who knows a great deal about anatomy and nutrition, I will tell you that she is NOT skinny.... unless you also want to say that the whole population of China is SCARY SKINNY.. They are just build like that.

      LeAnn is just a product of what todays society teaches. That a woman has to be super skinny to look "good"...thats why we have children now, young girls, who are starving themselves and feel they need to loose weight. Because they want to look like these women on tv. Come on people...its great to be skinny...but if your bones are showing thru...thats a little extreme. LeAnn looks normal to me...I don't think she looks too skinny. I've seen much worse for sure.

      Nope, those are definitely bones, not abs. There's a big difference between the two. Seriously, I can understand the pressure to be thin when paparazzi follow you everywhere. Lots of celebrities develope eating disorders, and then their perception of their own body becomes scewed. She probably honestly does not think she looks, or is too thin, but I hope she tries to take care of herself better. We don't need another tragic, completely avoidable celebrity death.

    Being analytical, I am unable to determine what is "scary", since that is an emotional datapoint. I, however, can critically observe that her jawline is no longer buffered by natural fat, her optical orbit is similarly outlined, her biceps no longer are softened by the natural layer of fat. These are all indicators that demonstrate a closer look at her health. I must say: she is unattractively skinny now and no longer as asthetically appealling as she used to be because of her "gaunt" attributes.

    Paul, opinions aside (and I acknowledge that skinnier girls are more attractive to some, whereas I'm more attracted to a woman with some curves), there's a point when it becomes unhealthy–once body fat goes below a certain ratio there are all sorts of health risks. And those risks are just as serious as (albeit different from) those that come into play when body fat is too high.

    I agree. You can clearly see her hip bones, the bones of her wrist, and her ribs. Why is it that as Americans in general get heavier, our celebrities are getting skinnier? The sight of Angelina jolie's bony veiny arms is just as sad. These women only look healthy when they are pregnant because they allow themselves to eat.

  344. Brush up on your muscle chart, people

    Those are not abs or hip bones. Those are obliques. Hip bones don't sit above your waist and connect to your lats (back muscles). Look at the second picture. She has clearly defined deltoids (shoulders), obliques, triceps (arms), and lats. Yeah, you don't get those by being anorexic. There is absolutely nothing unhealthy with having an extremely low body fat percentage if you have good musclular development as she clearly does.

  363. Incorrect

    Wow, there are a lot of ignorant people here...folks, do you know what anorexic and bulemic people lose immediately after the fat? Muscle definition. She clearly has muscle definition in her shoulders, legs, and trunk. Her face does not have the sunken cheeks typical of someone with an eating disorder, her skin has a healthy tone to it, her ribs are not sticking out as some of you are saying (she is correct, those ARE actually abs, or more specifically obliques)...she looks to me like she does a lot of exercising, probably running and swimming.

    Oh, and by the way, SHE'S POSING FOR PICTURES IN A BIKINI!!! Eating disorders generally stem from deep-seated self-esteem issues that would make the idea of posing for a picture in a bikini absolutely horrifying. While that's certainly not always the case, let's at least try to put two and two together here.

    Just because some of you...um...perhaps haven't seen your own abs in a while does not mean that every lean person in the world has an eating disorder.

    First, let me respond to the knee jerk, everyone who doesn't think she looks good must be fat. I am 5'2 and weigh 105 pounds. I have been told to gain weight most of my life (couldn't get above 95 most of my High School and College days) so NO, that is not it. I agreed with most of the people who said that to me– just couldn't do it. I have an insanely fast metabolism. NOW, to me, this girl looks terrible. I look at her face and see a skeleton. Is she unhealthy? Impossible to know without knowing her. She could be eating super healthy and working out like crazy (too much?). But, opinions are opinions and everyone has one– and I think she could gain 10 to 15 pounds and be much prettier. I am not saying lose the muscle tone. I am just saying lose the Skeletor face, and the bones protruding from your hips. Just my opinion. Seems she got on a kick and just kept going and now is a little body dysmorphic.

    With Body Dysmorphia, fueling Anorexia or Bulimia, the patient is physically unable to see and process their malnourished body for what it is. No matter how "scary skinny" they become, they still perceive themselves as flabby or obese, when in fact they can be very near death. Her assertion that she is at a healthy weight fits perfectly within this disorder. Sadly, so much public attention and commentary (believe me, she scans every Twitter and Blog and Report about herself) only exacerbates her delusion of what is "normal" and how she fits in with that. The attention she received and receives for having lost so much weight gives her a feeling of power, and she craves more such attention, so will continue on this spiral until she gets help.
