Skinny girls is for white guys with small dicks, once their girl gets a little meat on them, their inadequacy in the sheets leaves them feeling, well- inadequate.

If you don't want her, pass her along. Although my wife is very jealous.

These socks are starting to give me the shits.
The idea that seeing the world is going from place to place to look at obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.

That was your first mistake. She was already 10 Kg too heavy... :)

It is one thing to want to be thin. It is very difficult to lose weight. So maybe she never will. Many people put on weight as they get older.

I suggest, just encourage her to be healthy.

I have a friend who is 37 kg. She is about average height for a Cambodian girl, but very skinny. If I had a wife like this, I would be worried about breaking her bones. She seems so fragile.

She is a (yawn) petite asian. But..... There is nothing more sexy than a thick asian, not many here, but such a delight when I see one. Others have posted pictures of obese women, and no that is not my style. If that was the OP's case, than maybe there would be a case for helping her.

Heresy!!!

I drink - burp - sorry - around 40 cans a week and am thin...

However it has made my memory somewhat fuzzy as I can't recall the last time I was sober.

I do have vague recollections of a bad day once where there was no beer available. Twas a sad day.

:beer3:
No beer on Election Day ? Just get a case the day before ..
I thought you lived in thailand
where they don’t even sell beer out of the 7-11 during noon hour (2 hours ) or after 11pm
That was a drag ( at the last time I visited ) / is It still ? 🤷🏼‍♀️
No bro - I like Thailand, enjoyed it there but I live in the Kingdom of "24 hour beer just open the bedroom window and a can will be passed to you" Wonder

I have 10 slabs saved for my Birthday Party at the Peace Palace (1 hours drinking with 25 thirsty guys) as Runaway Rainsy means everyone on duty.

Advice
Isn't that like 121 lbs? Depending on her height thats actually a normal and healthy (BMI) weight for someone of 5' 4" or so? Maybe if you think she should lose weight try making healthy low-fat dinners for her and going to the gym with her, you get what you want and maybe if you approach it right she will think you are being sweet so you also earn brownie points so everybody wins 👍

Body shame
Also for everybody body shaming, you know what they say about glass houses 😂

Minister of Health
The Health Minister of Belgium is apparently very popular over there. And apparently did a great job as a Minister of Immigration prior to that so if she makes effective polices good on her. I dont thinks its healthy to be that weight but she may have her own battles (thyroid problems or whatever) and she was a GP for 25 years so she should know something though I hope for her own health she drops a bit.

The average American woman weighs 166.2 pounds, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

The average woman in England weighed 11 stone (70.2kg) and was 5ft 3in tall (161.6cm).

Right, the average Australian woman is 163cm, and 71.1kg.

Your dream girl is well below average, why set your sights so low? haha

Most probably because of their recent history, Cambodia's national pastime/recreation/sport/celebration is eating as much food as is humanly possible at every opportunity that presents. It verges, almost, as the national religion.
So you are up against that for a start.

Not sure what the answer is for everybody, but i doubt it is joining the gym.
My personal observation is that Khmers are very good at embracing their traditional activities and roles.
So your wife/gf may need to find some exercise that resembles that spot - socially and emotionally as well as physically.

Most Cambodian women are not lazy, they just sometimes struggle to find a comfortable way to fit into the brave new world, and so retreat back to the comfort of the kitchen.
So finding just the right recreational exercise, where she feels she fits in and that she enjoys, will do wonders for your wife/gf in other ways also - not only in getting physically healthier.
Important stuff.
