It seems like the skinny ones are called anorexic and the bigger ones are called fat. There's no in between. I'm asking because last year I weighed 156 and then I just went to an event this year and I weighed 129. (I'm 5'10".) Last year people were calling me fat and I lost some weight and now a bunch of people are calling me anorexic? Surprisingly, the terms are equally hurtful. So why can't girls win? Why are they either fat or anorexic?

You, as a girl, and all girls for that matter, need to stop listening to people who aren't qualified to determine what's best for their health.
Your doctor, personal trainer, nutritionist and other health professionals are who you want to listen to.
Only about 2% of women in the United States have eating disorders. Most women need to understand the dangers of not enough exercise, eating lots of processed and fatty foods and of course, not knowing what a healthy weight should be.
If you haven't done so, you and all girls (and guys for that matter) should speak to those people who are best trained to help them.3
