What is the cutoff size between "thick" and "fat" for a girl?

"Thick" isn't even a word that's really in my vocabulary...I've never heard anyone in my life use that to describe someone. Then again, I don't even like commenting on other people's bodies and I'll call someone out if they do it in front of me. Keep it to yourself if you think a woman (or man for that matter) is fat or thick or skinny or whatever you want to think.

Crazygurl1211, I picked a somewhat arbitrary goal based on BMI. I've never been anything but overweight, so it was really hard for me to know what my goal should be. I don't know at what weight or fitness level I'll be comfortable or happy with my body (and hey, I may never be happy with my body!) However, if you've ever been at a lower weight that you've been comfortable at, that would be a good goal. Just remember to keep re-evaluating your goals as your body changes.

Also, the website that was already mentioned is really work a look-through.

I have to admit this is all kind of amusing to hear our thoughts on thick in this observant, withdrawn sort of way because I can sorta tell that most of us weren't/aren't in environments where "thick" is regularly used as "hey hottie." or even used at all lol

You're very right. I'm beginning to wonder if it's just a cultural/regional thing? I am pretty sure I've only heard it in movies...lol

This, exactly. It's a term used by the younger generation, it was NEVER used to describe a body type in my generation, we said heavy. SMH!

Definitely. I'm from a poor but very suburban town in CT and in high school, sometimes the students from Hartford would attend some of the classes in our school and I heard that term used a lot more. I live in Brooklyn now and I hear it when I'm in the outer boroughs, like Upper East Harlem or deep south Bushwick, towards the Bedstuy area. Its more of a city thing.

I personally hate "curvy" "thick"... Curvy means a woman has curves to me... And, when I think of curvy. I think of a thinner, hour glass curvy, not an overweight curvy.

I guess it just really depends on the culture of the people. In my culture, men drool over "thick" women. Thick meaning, carrying your weight in "all the right places". What does that mean? Well, it means different things to different people lol.

Yep, I hear it all the time and I'm from central CT. It's more of a young generation term, definitely on the urban side.

As JohnP said, it's really more of a body shape issue than a size issue. As I've seen it - if you have a flat stomach, large breasts and large thighs/butt, you're thick. I HATE the term thick. To me, it's not a compliment, but simply means "curvy in the right places without being small."

I can't wait until I don't hear someone call me thick ever again.

It's not a term of endearment that's for sure. Honestly the term makes me think of cankles.

"Thick" is a little extra weight, larger buns and thighs but with a flat tummy. See Coco, ICE-T's wife. Perfect example.

I've only heard "thick" used in a positive way. Usually by men who use the word "skinny" in a negative way, because they don't care for that body type.

Big range of tastes out there (thank goodness!).
