tired of the underweight comments

im 5"2 98.5 lbs...and my cheeks do look sunken in, but they are just really defined, they have always been really defined, even when I had more weight on me..but im tired of getting the your "too thin" comments..I eat SOOO much I eat more then my husband who eats like a horse. I know my face looks thin, but what am I supposed to do? Im already eating tons of calories a day..more then 2,000...what am I supposed to do?

  • are you breastfeeding? I know BF doesn't make you super thin but it could be why you're burning all those calories. And what exactly are you eating? Calories could be anything.

    I get the same cuz I'm 5'2 n weigh 120lbs. Dont' think I'm super thin but all my "thin" clothes fits me big.

  • Ignore them, I'm 5'2 100 lbs and I'm tired of the look how tiny I am comments. I just smile and nod and refrain from calling people fat asses.

  • ya ppl keep asking me if im sick...anorexic and so on..I eat healthy but I eat large portions, and I snack between meals to keep my calorie intake up without making myself sick..im trying to get up to 100 but I dont think a 1 lb and a half will make much difference

  • Depending on your bone structure you might appear a little thing; I'm 5'3" 115-118 and wear a size 2 in pants. So I'm guessing you must be shopping in the childrens' section not jr's??

    Honestly if I wanted to gain a little weight I'd try one of those protien shakes they sell at GNC or somewhere...try Ensure or whatever it's called that's basically the same thing...on top of your regular meals; not in place of...

  • I understand up until after the age of 40 I was always 5'6 and 98 lbs ( 75 lbs after child birth all times). I just have very very slim bone structure. Funny thing was I never had protruding bones anywhere. People were always so very cruel and said awful things to me. Just hang in there gaining weight is not always easy for everyone.

  • Give them big sad doe eyes and tell them you have hyperthyroidism or Graves Disease. That should shut them up.
