Maybe it's my age or the fact that I feel like "me" at a certain weight but lately I've been feeling pressure to be thin for reasons outside of what I personally desire. I think it has a lot to do with moving across the country last year. Where I used to live, it was highly ethnic and low income. It wasn't exactly a culture of fit and lean. Here in our new city, I'm actually considered curvy. It seems like everyone my age is 5"10" and 115lbs. I don't want to be that thin but it just feels so odd to me to not be in the thin group anymore even though very little has changed in my weight or health. I'll freely admit to being a perfectionist. Seeing so many women smaller than me just immediately makes me feel like they know something I do not and that the measure of health has somehow been shifted from what I know to be true. I do *know* that that is absurd but I still can't help thinking it. *sigh*
