    Say.no.more.
    I am OUTTEY!
    Haven't read all the other replies but I read this and I immediately thought of the A*** B**** bikini body challenge. I was so close to joining but after reading her poorly worded and grammatically incorrect status updates I couldn't! Total load of ****. Friends who've done it say she advocates skipping meals and other nutritionally adverse things.

    I'm always comparing women's bodies. What I like, don't like, wish I was, who I'd turn for etc. You can't tell me that no one here has never done it.

Some of us would prefer the muscular, others would prefer the toned. Some may not be attracted to either! That's just life! Would that be offensive too? Because I'm pretty sure I've seen posts on bh in the past discussing preferences with male body shapes!
    Bc we aren't men. If that was posted in a weight loss group of men, then I would say there could be potentially damaging ramifications to that.

    If a woman has the body of the model - skinny, no boobs etc, seeing those comments that she likes like a little girl may really upset her and make her question herself. Likewise a girl that is ripped may be offended by the comments she looked like a dude.

    But for me the offensiveness of that group goes way beyond those pictures....

    Of course we have! But for a "professional" to allow a platform and therefore encourage comments that blatantly slam, offend and judge?

    I havent seen the group..but I do find it offensive to judge body types.We are all different and even if 2 diff ppl work their *** off,they will never be the same!
    Its common sense...we all want a wonder pill to be skinny...it aint gonna happen without good diet and regular exercise,thats a given!!And its not just about looking "hot" its about being healthy!
    As much as I dont like her skinny fat=yuk comment,its kinda true.Anyone can be skinny,but its takes alot to tone muscles.

    No one is saying they haven't, but to provide a platform for people to do so in a way that could impact people negatively is really unprofessional and wrong. It would be like me coming here on BH and starting a thread asking members to choose which body type the like out of A and B.

    There is a HUGE difference between having your own personal views on what your likes/dislikes are as opposed to using a Social Media outlet to have people scrutinize and judge.

    I think this whole A... B.... craze is potentially very dangerous. Some girls on that site are eating well below 1000 calories a day, plus doing a intense workout regime. Sure, the weight is coming off, but at what cost to their health?

    Ok so I've just gone to look at the picture everyone is talking about and I have to agree with electric pink and say that I don't see what the big deal is. The question asked is simply "which do you prefer?" personally I prefer the VS angel, but only because she's look more feminine. The diva definitely puts in the hard yards though and deserves some credit. I don't know if I'm missing something but I just don't find it offensive sorry but that's just my opinion.

Im glad for it. The longer it takes to work it off the longer it would take to put it back on (apparently). Im no where near skinny fat yet, but when i get there ill be super happy
    6.1kgs in 12 weeks is awesome!
    Well done

    Honestly? Sorry but yes...you are missing something. We aren't talking about the 'bodies', we're talking about the platform that is being made available for woman to scrutinise others. It goes against what positive weight loss is all about.
    It's cool if you don't see that, we're all different and have different ideologies.
