One of my friends is about to start doing modeling. She can be really annoyying about it because she sometimes hints that me and our other mates are fat. She also lies about her weight to us saying shes thinner but we know shes not telling the truth.

They had an anorexic girl on the latest series of Britain's Next Top Model. There's been a lot of anger about it.

People idolise and copy models so having anorexic models is a bad idea. They should be BMI tested if they want to model, and have their health sorted out first. And for the same reason there shouldn't be fat models. They should be healthy because then that would present being healthy as beautiful which would encourage good health.

Better yet, we could all stop insisting that an objectively perfect, beautiful body not only exists as a concept but should also be obtained by every woman in the world.

True. And also, it's often a persons attitude that makes them appear beautiful. And it tends to be the attitudes of those who are confident in themselves :D

It's not possible to calculate an average weight like that, because it depends on so many factors, such as your height (I was almost a foot taller than most girls my age when I was sixteen, and consequently I weighed a lot more), your skeleton (some people have got massive bones, others not), and your muscle density. Muscle is much more dense than fat, so a person who is in good shape physically may actually weigh more than someone who isn't.

The best way to judge your health is not by weight. If you're eating a good range of healthy foods and you exercise plenty, your body will take care of itself. There's no reason why you should even need to know your weight if you do that. I know plenty of people who never look. They just take care of themselves.
