Lena Dunham Is 162 Pounds at 5’3”

x - Lena Dunham Is 162 Pounds at 5'3''

On her weight gain after undergoing a hysterectomy and the way people react to her body at different weights: 

On the left: 138 pounds, complimented all day and propositioned by men and on the cover of a tabloid about diets that work. Also, sick in the tissue and in the head and subsisting only on small amounts of sugar, tons of caffeine and a purse pharmacy. On the right: 162 pounds, happy joyous & free, complimented only by people that matter for reasons that matter, subsisting on a steady flow of fun/healthy snacks and apps and entrees, strong from lifting dogs and spirits. Even this OG body positivity warrior sometimes looks at the left picture longingly, until I remember the impossible pain that brought me there and onto my proverbial knees. As I type I can feel my back fat rolling up under my shoulder blades. I lean in.

I can’t roll my eyes beyond the skull.

how to tell a story the opposite way, just for the sake of denial. should be trump’s publicist for sure.

It conpletely disgusts me. The attitude I wold NEVER want to adopt. go away. get a normal job maybe you start reasoning a bit more.

5’0”??? Not so sure…

I like her, don’t know why people are so negative about her… What did she do to you people? 🙂

She has nothing to say, but really wants to say it. She has a complete looser mentality and she expects the world to validate it. She wouldn’t survive anywhere but among similar-minded (privileged nothingness) people. she spends her time trying to normalise and even flag around , to the point of calling herself a warrior!!!, the most basic obnoxious and zero-effort behaviours. nothing new, a passive product of her time with zero insight. I don’t know how she doesn’t want to jump from a cliff, because sure I would if I had her mindset. oh wait…maybe by finding pointless battles… Read more »

I agree with Beetlejuice! Maybe because I watched and loved Girls, but I really like Lena and I think she’s a great positive role model for women. Sure, she’s not fit, but in reality not everyone is going to be fit and those people deserve to feel good, too.

She confessed in her book that when her younger sister was like a baby, she sexually abused her!
“…anything a sexual predator might do to woo a small suburban girl I was trying.”
DISGUSTING! Can’t understand why people hate on her just as much, or even more, than what they are doing to the men predators!

Not everyone is made the same or meant to be the picture of attraction. If she can accept that all the power to her, everyone is annoying in their own way.

162 lbs is definitely heavy for her height, but considering she recently had a hysterectomy, I think her weight gain could certainly be related. That said, health conditions are exacerbated by excess weight and once Lena has recovered fully (both physically and mentally) it would be a good idea to get to a healthier weight.

yeah she’s missing the point that it’s possible to be 130 lbs at her weight simply by not binge eating and having compassion for your body. it doesn’t take pills and booze and unhappiness to be a healthy weight. i almost feel sorry for her. *almost* (but don’t. she’s like a kindergarten version of tess holiday at this point).

She is. But uglier. (cause she also wants to be ugly)

She doesn’t look 162 though. I’d say 10 pounds lighter. Is she really this short?

Lena has just lost all her credibility to me.
Her message is fine, if she feels great in her body, good for her.

But first she loses weight and claims it is through exercising for her mental health and endometriosis (“Right now I’m struggling to control my endometriosis through a healthy diet and exercise”), then Donald Trump… no mention of a strict diet, or a “purse pharmacy”. So why did she sell her weight loss as “healthy” to begin with just to take it all back now?

cause she’s a professional complaine/blamer

Because she is a professional narcissist and uses her body as a social or feminist comment. Most people wouldn’t have noticed that she gained or lost weight anyway, she had to make a whole spiel about it because thats what she does.

“Strong from lifting dogs and spirits” – sooo basically you are telling me you are a lazy blob and proud of it. Great. What a role model!

On the right she looks like a part cashier at a hodunk grocery store in rural Tennessee who flunked out of high school, failed her GED then figured that it for her life and started having kids then divorced her husband to marry the neighbor she was not so secretly having an affair with and now lives in a trailer and complains that the price of smokes keeps going up.
