rant on PEARS.... from an apple


Quote  |  Reply

I DONT GET WHY ANY OF YOU PEARS COMPLAIN!!!!!

all you "pears" have that shape mens perfer more. small waist, bigger bottom. It's ATTRACTIVE and HEALTHIER than us santaclause shaped apple women.

so WHAT if we have tiny legs/ arms? we have a HUGE middle it doesnt even matter! plus, its UNHEALTHY to have all that FAT in the MIDDLE. we dont even have PRETTY CURVS.... we even LOOK bigger with a little bit of weight gain, but the pears look.....  EVEN BETTER SOEMTIMES. urgggaARUUHHH.

i'm the worst of the apples...... i look like a boobah but WORSE

 

 

urgg. i'm not sure if i'm allowed to post this, but i get so FRUSTURATED MAD whenever a pear complains........ PEAR SHAPES ARE ACTUALLY ATTRACTIVE.

 

 

um... i wont get in trouble for this..... would i?
i just wanna let it out...

I like this apple thread much better than mine. It encapsulates my anger and frustration at being an apple so much better!

A friend of mine is about 5'2" and a pear. We have the same hip and thigh measurements. I'm 5'7" and a raging apple.  Guess who looks cute in her little summer tops without stomach fat and everyone comments how adorable she looks? (Hint: IT'S NOT ME)

I'm 5 inches taller, only about 35lbs heavier and missing out on all the great little summer tops when really, we're probably very similar in fat content.

I hate you, pears.

When I read the title, I didn't realize this would be about body shape.  I thought it was going to be a rant about fruit.   HAHA.  Man I'm dumb.

Anyway.  It's a classic case of wanting what you don't have.  People with curly hair want straight hair, and vice versa.  Same thing.  Me, personally, I'm a pear.  Sometimes I get envious of apples because I get jealous of the small pants they can wear, and short sleeved shirts.  I have the Polish fat arms, and despite the fact that I have a tiny waist, in pictures you are more likely to see my fat arms, and think the rest of me is fat.  Also, I think an apple is easier to hide.  Both shapes have their advantages and disadvantages.

The moral of the story is love what you have, and learn to dress it accordingly.

THERE IS NO HIDING THE APPLE.

If you look fat around the gut, you look fat all over. It's like a visual indicator if the person is healthy. Fat gut=not so healthy

 

edit: the moral of the story is being apple shaped sucks

edit2: I thought it was a rant on actual pears, too. I came to defend them until I saw we were talking about people with cute little waists :(

lol no you won't get in trouble :) though some people may disagree....

I am a pear and am quite happy with that. I wasn't always...as a teenager I was always so jealous of thin-thighed girls and thought that my larger hips and butt and thighs made me fat. Not phat, FAT. I look back at pics from back then and realize my thinking was the problem, not my thighs!

We should all embrace our strengths, and love out bodies for what they are. No I will never have thighs that don't touch...but I have a lovely small waist and less risk for heart disease. And you, miss apple, may have to be more concerned about keeping your weight down to avoid health problems, but you can wear shorts and sleeveless tops and look great.

I will never complain about being a pear. Fruit rocks!

 LMAO, I thought the same thing when I read the title!!!

I can't speak for either side because I am, fortunately, and hourglass. Most people have no clue how much I weigh (and even at my highest weight of 187lbs, I was turning heads when I dressed in non-scuzzy clothes Tongue out) because everything is well balanced. Unfortunately for me, everything's still fat!

 oooooo i like your thingy tooooo!

 

i cant find a SINGLE GOOD THING ABOUT BEING AN APPLE.......

pears,.... you guys say you want thin arms/ legs?
WELL LETS PUT A TSHIRT OVER US
pears: nice curvy hips, nice shoulders (they dont look bony or anything...) AHHH THAT HUGABLE CURVY WAIST
apples: YOU'D BOUNCE OFF THE PERSON YOU HUG. those tiny arms and legs look HORRIBLE AGAINST THAT STOMACH

now lets put on jeans:
Pears: OO YAY NICE CURVY ATTRACTIVE BUTT!!! MEN LOVE IT! GIRLS ENVY IT. and the top actually closes!
apples: I CANT EVEN CLOSES THE TOP OF MY PANTS WHILE THE THIGS HANG BAGGY. i reemeber when i was...... 13-14..... a size 16 pants couldnt close my stomach, but the rest of the jean was too long..... i felt short, stocky, UGG

 

if you're an apple, i'm sorry........... i'm an apple too.... theres no way for me to be fat and pretty... while pears can be heavier and prettier.

HMMM.. I'm an hourglass, but we have the worst of both. I'm 45 lbs overweight right now and WAS 77 lbs overweight. I gain weight all over so my butt and hips look like a pear and my gut an apple. My waist is over the "healthy" size for heart disease, my butt is huge and my boobs pop out of all my bras. No it is not fun to be an hourglass, well at least not until goal weight is reached. Then we have more fun. hee hee hee. I have a friend who is a pear and she lost like 10 lbs. She looks like she lost 50. It all came off the hips. She looks great. I have lost 33 and no one has even noticed.

 as far as the jeans go...pears have problems with those too. you have the opposite problem i do. if i'm fortunate enough to find jeans that cover my big butt and thighs without looking like a second skin, the waist is wayyy too big. even on low-rise pants. so i end up having to get like super-low rise jeans, and then my business hangs out (lol) unless i wear long shirts.

what i'm gathering is that it's a vast conspiracy against everyone. :P

oh, and hamhamhamham, your name makes me laugh. how perfect to be named after a food on a calorie counting website. this, of course, coming from a girl with the screen name hamburger28. anyway, you made me smile with your choice of screenname.

Agreed.  I finally got a pair of jeans that fits BOTH my butt and my waist.... but, my butt crack hangs out.  UGH!

That's me...on the plus side, your tops and bottoms are within a size or two of each other.  On the minus side, so many of those things that only an apple or a pear can wear well look attrocious on me.  Can you say low rise jeans...the only style right now unless I want to shell out for a tailor...muffin top.  I think they're cute on pears because you have a tiny waist.  Cute tops with empire waists...also a current style...they're adorable on apples and give them the aspect of more curvature...bad idea on an hour glass...our hips make them look like a tent.

I feel the same way! I'm only 19 and cursed with this apple shape.. (Well maybe it will be a "ruler" when I lose weight). It makes me way too self conscious to ever wear a bikini! Plus I'm really short so my legs and arms still look stumpy and thick. Such a pain..

Well I'm a pear but I have TINY boobs! And no workout/weight loss will help with that :(

I have two good friends who are pears.  They're both slightly taller than me, and they're both thin.  They complain ALL THE TIME about their hips.  Wah poor me, my hips are wide.  Their hips are actually wider than mine.  But their waists are a good 3 inches slimmer.  So they're 0's and 2's, while I'm 4's and 6's, and they're slender and feminine, and I'm short and stocky.  I'm sure my body fat is lower than both of theirs, but mine just happens to all be in my middle. 

So now I'm curious as to what shape I am!!! I  have a whole body picture in my profile... if anybody can tell me what shape I am I will greatly appreciate it!!!Cool
