My size and weight and why I am so small.












Hi everyone! Basically I wanted to do a different sort of post today, I am constantly getting rude comments on my videos/blog pictures about my weight. I have started to upload a lot more lookbooks recently as I love doing fashion related videos and I feel like a lot of people prefer those sort of videos, but the more I put on and the more you can see my full body, the more and more hate I get. I recently got a comment which made me want to write this up and a video (which will be uploaded next week) just explaining everything about my size and weight. The comment said something like, 'these videos make me uncomfortable you are too skinny I am unsubscribing' and it really really annoyed me. Usually I don't get too annoyed about hate comments, I sort of just brush them off and laugh because they really don't bother me but when it comes to my weight it does because I am naturally like this! 
Eating
Starting with my eating, I don;t usually eat breakfast because I tend to sleep in a lot, I usually wake up around the half eleven mark and I then eat my dinner at 12 which will usually consist of some sort of sandwich with salad in, a packet of crisps, and maybe a biscuit. Now to me I see that as a normal meal, I will then snack through out the day on things like chocolate and crisps, I am not the healthiest of people when it comes to eating but then around half 6ish I will have my tea with my family which is usually something like Shepards pie and vegetables  or pasta bake and then I will usually have two yoghurts for my pudding. After this I usually get bored later on at night and that's when I start to eat loads of crap, I will usually have some toast or cereal or something like that around 9ish. So when it comes to my eating I think that I eat pretty normally, the only time I don't eat is when I am feeling down or I am upset about something, I am one of those people who won't eat for days on end if I'm upset and I am extremely fussy with food, like I don't like a lot of things but the foods I do like I will eat all the time and I love them. In general I love food and I always have done.
Exercise
I am the laziest person that you will probably ever meet, I don't really do any sort of exercise  I have a few walks into the village with my friend maybe a couple of times a week and that about as much as it gets! I'v had comments saying things like my belly can't naturally be that toned, to be honest I think I am pretty lucky with my belly, last year I was determined to get a 6 pack for some reason and use to do quite a lot of sit ups but apart from that I have never done any sort of exercise on my belly to make it toned. So to clear all this up I basically don't work out, I don't go to the gym or anything like that.
Appearance
From the extremely old pictures I have uploaded which you can laugh at I will let you, you can see when I was younger in my school days which was around 4 years a go now, I had a fatter face, I think that was more like having a baby face and as I'v got older I have just lost that, and I think I do look a little bigger I think I was around a size 8 on the really old photos, but again I think it was more like puppy fat and I hadn't fully developed yet. When I'm blonde this is where I have physically looked my skinniest, I had a illness where something was wrong with my intestines, which meant I would throw up every day and this was for two weeks none stop, I was really poorly and on top of that I got food poisoning at the same time so I lost a lot of weight then, especially on my legs which you can probably tell. Last year would of been me at my heaviest which was around 7 and a half stone, I remember trying to pull up a pair of size 6 shorts and I couldn't get them over my bum, which you can see in the picture where I have disco pants in actually looks quite big but I love my bum on that picture and wish that I still had it! The ones next though I hate, I feel like I look really wide and I just hate it!. Now I am 6 and a half stone and I am around 5ft which I don't think is too skinny for my age, I feel happy with my weight at the minute I would just prefer a bigger bum and boobs but wouldn't every body haha!.
Youtube
Starting on YouTube I never thought it would get as big as it has done and I am so grateful for that, I am so grateful for all the lovely comments that I get daily and the ones that say things like 'your figure is to die for', but then I get comments saying things like you are a bad role model to girls, you are making them want to have a eating disorder. Now coming on youtube I never expected to be anyone's role model, all I expected was a little hobby sharing my fashion and beauty tips with other girls, I never intentionally wanted to become anyone's role model I mean don't get me wrong I am flattered by that but I will never ever hold myself responsible as people having a eating disorder as I don't have one myself, I have never told people what to eat or what size they should wear on my videos, all I'm doing is videos just like every other youtuber does and I don't see why just because I am slightly smaller that the average girl I shouldn't be able to do the fashion side of youtube!. I am size 4 on my bottom half and usually a size 6 on my top half but I am not saying that everyone has to be my size, everyone is built different just like I am!. People would not say to a overweight person, ' you are too fat stop eating burgers' but they think its acceptable to say things like 'you are too skinny go eat a pie' just because I am skinny, it is the exact same thing and it is rude to comment on somebody else's weight, especially if you don't know the story behind somebody's weight.
Thank you
Thank you to everyone who has supported me and leaves me the lovely comments, you are the ones who make me want to do the fashion videos as cheesy as that sounds but I love you all and hope this has helped anyone who is feeling the same as me about being naturally small. I hope you had a good giggle at my old pictures too!
Lots of love Liv

  4. But at 5'0 and 91 pounds (6 and 1/2 stone) that makes your BMI 17.8. That makes you in the underweight category, which is unhealthy.

    And you saying you hated your body when you were 7 and 1/2 stone, which would have placed you in the 'normal' category, is what is making young girls who look up to you think they are fat when they are actually healthy.. you're not helping the problem!

    1. I'm guessing you decided to ignore the bit where it says I would love to have a bigger bum and boobs and I am happy with my figure?. I have explained what I eat and what I do. Nothing else can be helped towards my weight. No need to be so bitchy, I am not going to stop doing videos and blog posts because of girls like you.

    2. You're disgusting! Cant you see people like you are making her upset! Leave the girl alone for fuck sake! You're a bully, what gives you the right to comment on her weight? it has fuck all to do with you so shut up! So what your basically saying is then she should stop doing videos and making fashion blog posts just incase someone wants her figure and goes to stupid lengths to try and get it? Im sorry but that isn't her problem! She hasn't made them do that she hasn't told them to do that they do it off there own back!

    3. Isn't it funny how no-one can see Ellie's profile? So we can't judge and scrutinize her like she just has Liv!

      Delete
    4. All I'm saying is that you aren't healthy..

    5. Ellie how would you know if shes not healthy? And more importantly what the hell has it got to do with you? Telling someone what they are and what they're not makes you a hypocrite she is a naturally thin girl. If you cant wrap your little brain around that then that is not her problem. People like you are what make this generation shit commenting on someone's weight no matter how you put it is bullying. Your saying shes not healthy well you wouldn't know because you dont know her personally. You have a very small mind to just come out with such a vile comment about someone's weight, She is perfectly healthy she eats food she doesn't starve herself SHE IS A NATURALLY THIN GIRL!

    6. I understand! I lost a lot of weight last year and was down to 6 stone and I was 15 then, im not 16 and 7.5 stone which is still really thin for my age!
      havent your periods stopped ? theres a certain weight which you fall into a category of not producing enough eastrogen and your cycle stops, i think ur similar to me, you think you eat a lot but your not ? i dont know im not judging but beig that thin isnt good for you insides and if u want to have children when ur older

    7. Silly silly comment, I am healthy and quite clearly meant to be this way, I have had regular periods, every month since I was 14 years old so that shows I am clearly quite healthy with my weight.

  5. This has actually upsets me that it has come to this, I started watching you on YouTube a year ago and ever since then you have been my favorite youtuber. Your videos are so down to earth you dont pretend to be something your not which i think a lot of your subscribers love about you Liv, Whoever that rude person was to comment on your weight should know there place i think people forget how words can be hurtful and like ive seen you say before replying to someone's nasty comment on your video "You wouldn't say that to someone who is fat" And that's exactly right! I think people think calling someone skinny and calling them anorexic doesn't hurt them because they're not calling them fat when actually it hurts just as much. You look perfectly healthy in my eyes, your figure is gorgeous and you're such a beautiful girl i seriously put it down to jealousy. You can tell you're a naturally thin girl I think people need to really look at you before they comment you have a very small frame you can only be as big as your body frame and as you're quite small (no offence) you're obviously going to be thinner them some other people.
    I just wanted to let you know how much of a inspiration you have been to me. I am so happy i discovered you a year ago, Please dont let these fools upset you or get you down they're not worth it you have done nothing to provoke these people you have every right to upload fashion videos
    You're beautiful Liv! FUCK THE HATERS! <3

  6. At first in your blog posts I thought "Wow, she's so skinny" but not even in a bad way, people are built differently and it's also how each person's metabolism works as well.. people are very very judgemental on youtube etc because they think handing out harsh/hateful comments is fine because they're "anonymous", but that isn't the case. It's hard but don't listen to them, they're just wasting their time :( good blog post X x x x

  7. This is not hate whatsoever by the way and I support you and your Youtube channel immensely. I was just wondering, what made you lose that weight (you mentioned being 7.5 stone half year)? I'm not asking for tips but I was just generally intrigued because it's a lot to lose!

    Anyway, some people have no manners, basically, and feel it's their right to comment rude things about people's weight. Many people are just lucky! xx

  8. Before I had Rio I was the samee.. 5ft 6st4 everyone kept saying I was too small but I ate loads like you.. Obviously this changed after having rio I'm now 7st8 and people complain that I want to tone up and lose a few more pounds. As long as your happy it doesn't matter what anyone thinks. Healthy is not a size. :) and I personally think you look blooody amazing!

  11. I'm only about 4'11/5'0 and weigh about 100 pounds, I have no idea how to convert that into stone haha! This is the heaviest I've ever been in my life. And just like you, I eat all the time and almost never exercise. I naturally just have a fast metabolism. When I was 17 I got kind of sick and I just wasn't eating due to being over stressed with graduating and college, I only weighed about 80 pounds and since I lost all that weight I lost my boobs! Now I've gained back all the weight plus some, but my boobs never came back! I know exactly how you feel, people are always telling me I'm too skinny and I should eat more. But honestly I probably eat more than the people who are telling me these things! :)

  12. Hello and greetings from finland. I think you are such pretty and you look amazing.

  13. P E R F E C T blog post! I have never questioned your weight Liv, you are the size you are. I have that anger inside of me too when people have called me too skinny or whatever. Just knowing they would NEVER say anything offensive like 'you're fat' to a fat person, I also absolutely hate the word 'skinny' it is horrible, 'slim' is a much better word, I just don't think people realise that some people just have a high metabolism and don't gain weight. You are the perfect weight for your height and you always look lovely in your YouTube videos, I have been loving your OOTD vids recently (: I hope you have a good week xo

  14. The way people attack others for their weight is disgusting. You hear it all the time.
    My sister is naturally slim. When she was younger she was a size 10, now she's a size 6/8. She eats all kinds of junk food yet struggles to put any weight on. On the other end of the scale I struggle so much with losing the weight. (We do have people yelling ' you are too fat stop eating burgers' which is hurtful. Especially when my diet is vegetarian and really healthy, and I exercise. A slow metabolism and an under-active thyroid are thanks to that. My sister - fast metabolism, over-active thyroid (and she doesn't work out either).

    So it really winds me up when someone who doesn't know you shouts abuse at you over something that potentially you can't help! Grr.

    The fact they say they can't watch your videos because you're "too skinny" is just disgusting. Weight doesn't define who you as a person, and you stick with watching youtubers because of their personalities, not how much they weigh. Surely?
    Hopefully the trolls will leave you alone and realise that not everyone who is skinny starves themselves and exercises 'til they pass out, and not everyone who's over-weight pigs out on all fatty foods all day non-stop.
    This world disgusts me.

  15. whether its being called too fat, or too skinny, it both hurts. No one should be told how their body should or shouldnt look! I would HOPE that people just want the best for you and for you to be healthy (that goes for over weight people as well). Only YOU know if you're being healthy or not. And as long as you're being healthy.... then who cares!
    Im sorry you have to deal with the rude comments. People are so ignorant, especially on youtube. Just know you're gorgeous, inside and out!
    And the people who have the balls to leave hate comments have nothing to do with you... their hate comes from within and something they hate about them self... dont take it personal.

  16. It saddens me that you even had to write this blog post in the first place! no one should have to explain why they are the way they are! if you went around asking people why they were so fat it would not be tolerated and would be found offensive to the person who is overweight yet it's okay to ask a slim person why they are skinny! I have struggled my whole life with being 'too thin' even since I was a child I was extremely tall and skinny and it is just the way I am. No matter how much I eat or want to gain weight it is incredibly hard to do so. After this being pointed out to me at a young age and all my life by peers at school and even by adults and doctors I have developed insecurity of being 'too slim' and have been trying to gain weight for over a year. Although I did fill out once I hit puberty I am still aware of my weight.

    I really honestly do not understand today's society where it is bad to be any body shape. No one seems safe of scrutiny these days and it's wrong. Girls and women should be supportive of each other and not constantly trying to bring each other down. I have watched your videos from the beginning Liv and I have never once thought 'oh she's too skinny' it's just plain rude that people are commenting these things! I saw the comment that that girl left about unsubscribing and quite frankly it's her liss.
    please do not let these obviously insecure people bring your down. They must be a hell of a lot more insecure than you to be trying to be horrible to some one they don't even know, . Please keep up the great videos love seeing them in my sub box :) xxx

  18. Well done liv. Your words came straight from the heart. Its a shame that you had to do this to justify how you are naturally. It has nothing to do with any one else how you look. For what its worth I think you look great. I always look forward to your videos, you always come across as some one who is genuine. Not many like you xx

  21. Great post Liv! I understand how you feel, I'm about 5ft and a size 6 and people are often judging me too, thinking I don't eat. Admittedly, I have a small appetite but like you, I love food and love to eat :) Interesting and relateable post, love it! Can't wait to see the video too xx
