"In fact, the real danger may be that the contrast between the girls on the catwalks and the girls at the mall is creating an atmosphere ripe for binge dieting and the kind of unhealthy eating habits that ultimately result in weight gain, not loss."

My Ideas:

people may feel as if they need to look like the people advertising the cloths in order to look good in or fit into the cloths

She applauds the "real beauty" movement that celebrates average and plus-size women, but objects that normally thin women are excluded and left to defend their body types.

My Ideas:

She is saying its not heavier woman are eing judged but also very thin woman are also being judged.

I have trouble putting on weight, the same way some people struggle to lose weight.

My Ideas:

most people think someone who has issues with weight are people who are trying to lose it but there are also people who have trouble trying to gain it.

Diane von F├╝rstenberg, president of the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA), added fuel to the fire when she recently told a reporter that model weigh-ins in New York would happen "over my dead body."

My Ideas:

models already have guidelines to how much they can weigh, and the fact that an average woman isnt "skinny" enough pushes them to beleive they need to be thinner.
