"I am just sick of people saying that Catherine is too thin and that she SHOULD do something about it. What about the fact that maybe she CAN’T do anything about it? I am 32 and i’m naturally thin. I eat a lot , but everytime i gain a little weight , i just lost it in the weeks following without doing any sport etc… We don’t choose our metabolism! And trust me, being thin is not an advantage and being criticized for being too thin while you cannot do anything about it hurts A LOT!" - Submitted by Anonymous
First I tyhink if she wants to be thin or gain weight is her problem I don’t care and I naturl thin just liek you.
That’s said she got thinner for the wedding, her wedding weight is not her natural weight cause she did diet to get it. And we have some photos of her Uni days that she was more ”full’.
She’s less thinner after George and maybe this is her natural weight but we can’t really say what is her natural weight. But I can say that her wedding and pos-wedding weight is not her natural one cause she went on a diet to get it.
What exactly is a ‘natural weight’? I sport four days a week and I’m sure this effects my weight, but does that mean it’s not natural? If someone eats more en weights more than average, is that natural as well? There is no such thing as a ‘natural weight’, the words alone sound rediculous. The only thing that matters is that you’re healthy and happy with your body and the things you eat.
I totally agree with anon here, people are so much more rude to thin people than they are to fat people, simply because they assume it’s easier to do something about underweight compared to overweight- as if the weight of others is our concern, it is absolutely not. I think Kate is beautiful, no matter her weight.
