How thin are you

"Why are you so thin?" - Stop asking me that!

And what do you do as a cool and extremely relaxed pregnant woman of the 21st century? You smile, pretend that it doesn't interest you that everyone is looking at you, as if you were an object on display, and you are secretly annoyed.
Then the baby came and a surprise - many, many pounds disappeared with my stomach and even more with breastfeeding and I was again: thin. And so it played the usual song again and everyone asked, 'You're so thin, how do you do it?'

Why is that so important anyway?

As a result, I asked myself more and more often: who actually decided that slim (and pregnant) women should be squeezed out about all the details of their body measurements and their eating habits, but not more corpulent women and certainly not men?
And why is it so important anyway? Personally, I don't know a single woman who is 100 percent satisfied with her weight, although there are many highly attractive women in my circle of acquaintances who are by no means 'too fat' or 'too thin'.

Quite annoyed by my intolerant and extremely curious fellow human beings and by myself, because I always take such things to heart, I recently made a decision: I will no longer take part!

"Be glad you're so thin!"

Although, of course, I don't turn off the man on the bus, the well-meaning original stocking aunt or the uncomprehending friend who laughs at me because eight months after the birth of my son I choose supportive tights because I'm 'so thin anyway' I will not give this topic such a high priority in my life from now on.

However, when I tell a few of my friends about it, they look at me in confusion. 'Honestly, I don't quite understand the problem,' says one of them, and 'Yes, really, be happy and take it as a compliment when others say you are thin!' says the other and shakes her head, almost offended. Ok, admittedly, I should have expected this reaction. Somehow it's always the same, just packaged differently.

When you're a thin child, everyone worries all the time and wants to persuade you to eat. As a thin teenage girl, the bitches in your class tease you who are getting breasts two years earlier than you, and at some point acquaintances, friends and brazen strangers start teasing you ask for diet and exercise tips and almost accuse yourself of lying if you - truthfully - say you had a pizza yesterday and are not doing too much exercise at the moment other than a little yoga. Besides being a mom, of course.

Let's finally stop judging each other

With the prevailing opinion that thin is better than chubby, it seems okay to bombard very slim people with comments in public, while nobody would approach a stocky person on the bus to ask, 'How on earth can it be that you are so fat? That's not nice, though!'.

And that when it is not easy for women when it comes to their figure. The ideal of fashion magazines, social media stars and movie stars is more unattainable and more controversial than ever before. In the jungle between Kim K., Miley C. and Adriana L. we scourge ourselves every day and try to correspond to the unrealistic idea that the media suggests. Shouldn't it be the most logical thing that we normal people at least leave each other in peace and not judge each other on the basis of outward appearances?

Cheers for diversity

At least that's exactly what I've set out to do. I will never have a Kardashian butt because I can squat as much as I want. But maybe I don't necessarily need one either! I actually like my little one and generally feel good in my body. With this in mind: cheers for the versatility, the round and flat butts, the large and small breasts, the six-packs and the affluent tummies! Variety is something beautiful and we should celebrate that!
