    instinct 

    to attract a mate the animal instinct drives them to look healthy.. animals choose mates who will sire and breed healthy offspring

    there is a competition 

    as well these women are not trying to attract the one eyed 5 ft 300 LB poor guy who has no skills 

    You call it obsessed,  This means you are your self obsessed in the mix and have some point of contention that is not healthy -- hating the fit and healthy will not solve your own problems 

    as well - mix modern and pre-historic mind sets 

    women may often not want to get a lifetime job and being pretty and healthy is their chosen path to security

    there is another lesser point,,,, it can be very fun to be attractive and have people look at you with desire..... I can tell you I do love it 

    stop over analyzing and see the truth

    Because most models, and TV stars, are told and sometimes forced to become or stay thin.  And lets face it, we all think we look better if we are not too much over weight.  10,20, OK, 30 lbs is due-able, but anymore, most people wish they could lose those few extra pounds. although men are attracted to all shapes and sizes of women, I have dated very skinny women to full figured, to a female German body builder.  But a average size breast, a somewhat flat belly, and a tight butt will get more looks, and asked out more times than a person with belly rolls, and a butt that can not fit in an average size seat.  Now what most women who are crazy about their weight, do not understand, is most men do not care as much as women think if they are cool and fun to hang with, like some of the things we like to do, and you are willing to have sex with us.

    Because women are judged by their appearance,their weight,their looks

    They want to get married. They would like to be the suitable bride which the groom's family is looking for. For this reason, they are obsessed with their appearance and weight.

    A lot of them are trying hard to mask the fact that they are nothing but negative energy disguised as something beautiful.

    We all dress, speak, and behave like the kind of mate we want to attract.

    With nearly 40% obesity rates in the US clearly not all of them do this. But every few years fashion designers decide looks like "Twiggy" or "heroin chic" are hot and so some women will seek to replicate "the look". Just observe how many right now are considering gluteal implants because suddenly having a huge backside is considered attractive in some circles.

    Where do you live?

    in the U.S. we have very high rates of obesity.. few americans regardless of gender  are "starving themselves to death"...

    Also, I wish men were "judged" on weight instead of being judged on things we can't change such as height..
