Crystal Renn’s New Confessed Weight

  • Pin it

It’s been so long since Crystal Renn unleashed this weight fuss that I really thought it was getting beyond boring to talk about it. Still, the topic is high rated and gets as much attention as it did when it first started.

So what’s it about now? After weeks and months of speculations and pointing the fingers, Crystal finally admits to having shed some pounds. With a new workout regime and her recently gained self confidence, Crystal climbed the models ranks all the way to the top. Like she always dreamed she would. (in short – Crystal had high hopes of becoming a top model ever since she was 13. However, the tough industry ordered her to lose even more weight despite her already skinny frame. That pushed her into a regime her body rejected in just three years and she started piling on pounds and depression, fighting anorexia and bulimia in the same time. Crystal finally embraced her fuller figure and became a plus size model. Until recently, when…well she discovered she could regain her slim figure).

Now I’m just asking – is it normal to emphasize someone yo –yo dieting? Or is it because Crystal was actually a skinny girl that went rogue and now she got back from the dark plus size into the shiny skinny girls ranks again that makes it so important? Like the long lost son? We go through so many changes in a lifetime, it’s hard to understand where we actually are at some points. Crystal, however, deceived everyone by purposely projecting this happy plus size image and then rejecting it when the plus – weight was no more.

[…]there was a split-up that I went through that was very difficult, and I thought, “You know what? I need to be in a good place. I need to find me again.”

Yes, who are you, Crystal? Who should we believe you are this time? (via 1, 2)

I know it sounds very controversial but the NORMAL shape for the human body is a slender one.
People got used to understand slightly overweight/overweight as healthy due to post war imaginery of wealthness associated with over eating (and not always health eating).
This girl is having her moment.. nice for her. Nothing new from the fashion world. The very same history we saw to happen to Sophie Dahl a decade ago, now she is tinny as an asparagus.
I applaud every one’s decision and determination to loose weight.
Kudos for her.

Yes, people are naturally supposed to be thin and losing weight is a good thing if you’re overweight (which Crystal was). But it’s two-faced to be a champion of overweight women for several years and then backtrack the second you become thin. It’s like she’s forsaking her plus-sized days. It makes Crystal seem really fake. But anything to become famous, right?

And I don’t know about that post-WW2 theory. Most people were thin up until the ’80s. I think the reason people have become used to images of fatness is because obesity has skyrocketed in the last 30 years.
