What’s your weight secret?

I’ve been talking to some women and girls lately about their “weight secret.” It started because, even though they say they were outraged by the flack Jessica Simpson is receiving over her recent weight gain, some say that would like to be thinner.

Here are a few of the latest weight secrets:

(1) “There are these girls in school who weigh, like, 85 pounds and my friends constantly say that they look like thy could just blow away. My weight secret is that if I could trade places with one of them, I’d do it.” — Jen, age 14

(2) “My friends talk about the Olsen twins like they’re gods. I don’t say anything but I think they look gross. Of course, this doesn’t mean that I wouldn’t mind being admired like them. ” Jackie, age 15

(3) “I tell people that I don’t give a crap what I look like but I look at every single part of my body at night and try to figure out how to make it look better.” –Dannie, age 13
