Who really wants to be a toothpick?
My DH told me, "yeah the skinny girls are hot, sure, but that isn't the ONLY look thats hot, its just the one the media shoves down your throat." He think most women are attractive in some way or another and they aren't always real skinny. There's plenty of women with curves that look good and wear their weight quite well and have no problems turning heads.
So who cares what a buncha strangers in the media whom we'll never meet and have no role in our lives think? Its about self image, even when the DH tells you your sexy and flirts constantly, you still have doubts.

I have no desire to be toothpick thin. Would I like to be thinner than I already am? Yes, but I want to be a healthy weight with toned muscles. I think I use to want to achieve the un-achievable when I was younger, but the older I get the more I say... EFF that, I am my own person and don't give a crap what the media thinks is desirable, they are all a bunch of idiots anyway. lol

I am not concerned with what the media says, but you could go deeper into that thought and see that it's everywhere. Magazines, TV, Movies, even clothing designers. The same number size of two different designers can fit completely different. I think it all depends on what demographic you are playing to in some areas of media, of course.
