And NO Ellie, you aren't "goals" you literally have the body of a 10 year old, it's not cute, it's scary honestly.
I weighed 95 lbs when I became pregnant with my first child. My cycles were normal and all of my blood work proved that I was healthy. The pregnancy was healthy. The baby was a healthy 8 lbs. I gained weight in normal places, nursed my daughter, and then lost the weight on a normal diet. I weighed 100 lbs when I became pregnant with my son. Normal periods. Good blood work. Healthy pregnancy. 10 lb baby. Nursed and then lost weight normally.
I get that Ellie is annoying and has some odd habits and is probably married to a closeted bi/homosexual man-child, but I do not get the pathological hate on her body on this board. It is disturbing. Yes, she's lost a lot of weight. She was already skinny and still had some facial edema post-pregnancy, so the loss is prominent. But, she's said she has anxiety issues. She may have little appetite and even some food phobias. The diet she grew up with was carb and sugar-laden. Aside from all the treats, I think she tries to feed the family a healthy diet. A lot of people try to succeed and fail. She's still a pretty woman.
So, let's be fair. If you're going to criticize Ellie's body down even to her abdomen and crotch area, criticize everyone else. *Jared is short with a huge head, barrel-like chest, and the gut of a much older man. *Joel is short, balding, and has prominent love handles and he's not even 35 years old. *Bonnie aint
"goalz" either. She has what we call a "basketball gut" and swollen wrists and hands and wears her clothing entirely too tight. I still don't think any of them are hideous or scary or that they don't have good features too.
Yes, people are heavier than they were twenty years ago due to the heinous Western diet. Open your eyes and look around and you'll see some skinny Ellie's/Beaus and some pudgy Bonnie's/Jareds along with everything in between and upto the morbidly obese. Why pick on the skinny chicks? I've never understood this. It does not help them and it can cause a lot of emotional distress and anger. Sometimes you can't just eat a cheeseburger and change your metabolism.
At least one person will comment that all of the Ellie skinny shaming is because they are "concerned for her well-being". Madness!
