WTF - the fat pouring over her bathing suit bottom strap like that?! Ewwww

Serious question: How do some of these models get to that point so quickly? I’ve been skinny my whole life and while I’ve gained and lost some according to my diet/exercise (emphasis on *some*) I’ve never dramatically reached such a different end of the spectrum - and especially in such a short amount of time! Moreover, if she looks like that, why would she (a) keep wearing such a tiny bathing suit and (b) post a photo of it!!! I can’t wrap my head around these things.

I wonder what happened that after all those years of consistency she comes out as: “that’s my real body type”

An illustration of my face when I see a binge coming...
I'm always happy when I see binge coming


Anyway, Romee has featured heavily (pun intended) in my discover feed lately, thus providing ample ground for my resentment to grow, so here's exhibit a:

Remind me of her age again? Unless the answer is 12, she's too old for this cringy shit.

Exhibit b is some prime Darwinian evolution:



Exhibit c, to kowtow my way back on santa's nice list, I never found her stunning but think she looks good here:

View attachment 52549 Oh what is she up to... Real struggle or trying to pseudo educate us when she has put on weight during holidays?
“I do wanna eat healthy but what is healthy? Are fries good carbohydrates or are burgers better for protein? Amberlynn Reid saying happy is healthy but Tess Holliday saying health at every size.... also is butter a carb? Well one thing for sure... I’m a little confused here”
- what Romee really wanted to say as an excuse for her weight gain.

An exercise retreat? It looks like she's taking active measures to get that extra chub in check. I guess she's not pregnant and it really is just weight gain. At least she seems to care. Unlike Taylor.

I may be over analyzing but it think she might be going through something a little serious. Who knows, maybe the retreat is part of a new thing she’s trying but it does seem a little intense and her mom went with her. I hope she’s okay.

Ok a few points:

That weight gain is unbelievably noticeable in her upper half. Like yikes, her chin has disappeared completely and her waist looks a solid 27" in that workout section. Such a contrast to her previously rail thin top and everyone knows that if you lose you're best assets you're fucked.

In spite of this I still actually really appreciate that she is trying to go plant-based... even though she ate chicken halfway through. It has unbeatable health and environmental side effects in the long term and it's always great to see someone in a position of influence take encourage veganism! That being said, the initial transitioning to veganism is notorious for weight gain when you're experimenting with good and weaning yourself off a chicken addiction like hers; I'm not at all calling that the sole reason for her gain but it could be a benefactor. She said she wanted to try it before the VSFS but didn't in case it made her fat (not her exact words ;)).

Also, she seems self-aware? And less optimistic teenage role model-y? Maybe I'm overanalysing, but she almost entirely covered her problem spots throughout the video (even wearing a long sleeved top in the gym and not a sports bra) and just appeared overall a lot less cheerful and high energy. Big sign of insecurity. She also ruminates a lot on the retreat we mentioned a couple of posts up and clearly values it highly, whilst reluctantly reflecting on her :badgirl: habits over the holidays and her coffee addiction (that hit close to home... I need to stop too). Imo, she's 100% conscious of the fact she's falling down a Karlie Kloss shaped hole and is taking every possible action to realign her health and get back to being the skinny fit demigod of Victoria's Secret and the modelling industry as a whole. I can't complain in the slightest– Skinny Romee is one of my favourite thinspos, I just hope she's in a good place mentally and not troubled like @Skinnybubbly suggested.

Now that you reminded me about her saying that she didn’t want to get into veganism before the show a couple months ago, it all makes sense now! Possibly just went about veganism the wrong way and gained. It happened to me too a few years ago :slinkout: but it does look like she’s trying to get back to the way she was before.
