I have always thought of myself as a slim girl up until now. Some guy who somewhat like me but I'm not into him because he has the whole thug thing going which is a turn off for me. I have curve I not just a stick.

I weight 122 and I stand at 5'5 1/2 that is not considered skinny if you consider my height. I have a pretty normaly balance.

Well anyway that same guy is not dating a girl with a gut. She has a (botty doo) her stomach and butt are perfectly angled. Well the other day I came from school and ran into them, and he told me this is what a real women look like. I had to laugh and walk away, his girl is one burger away from legally being fat.

It depends, petite to me is like Lauryn Hill, Eryka Badu, Cameron Diaz, Kelly Rowland

But there is also what you call "curvy" petite like Halle Berry, Megan Good, Rhianna, Janet when she's in shape

Thick to me is like Toccara Jones, Beyounce, Buff da Body, Ester Baxter, J-LO, or let's saying have the 36-24-36 measurements BUT notice that the waistline is less than 30 inches. So anything number over 30 inches on women waist is consider not healthy

I think thick is when you got well-defined curves while being fit, skinny is when you don't or have little. And fat is just plain fat.

With those stats you're pretty slim in my opinion. Sounds like the guy was either flirting with you, or is simply a hater.

I think she is more on the husky side. I could not think of any fat celebrities,since there are few in Hollywood. She was the first one that came to mine.

Her, Raven Symone, Monique, and even Jordin Sparks weight is look down upon in Hollywood. I must admit, Raven Symone used to be hot, not that weight has downgraded her looks.

I've always thought thick and fat were the same thing. Isn't thick the nice way of saying fat? It seems to be the women who are described as being "thick" look fat to me.

If you're 5'5" 1/2 and you weigh 122-125, yeah, you're on the slim side. I wouldn't say skinny, although it's kind of borderline.

Thick would be 5'5" 1/2 and 145- 165. That's a healthy looking woman with full hips and thighs and shoulders, arms etc. Kind of like a young queen latifah.

Fat would be 5'5" 1/2 and anything above 170...but that's not obesely fat until you get to about 190, 200. I mean, at your height you could probably weigh about 170, 180 and still look good. Think of Jill scott.

Monique is sloppy fat. Jordin Sparks is a big girl but not fat at all...I'd call her extra thick, which is a good thing.
