Fat shaming puts us into groups based solely on our weight … judgement on the basis of weight sucks, it kills mental piece & self-confidence.

It doesn’t mean all fat people are unhealthy & suffer diabetes, heart ailments etc etc sometimes it’s related to heredity, result of medications and many other reasons. Media, celebrities, glamour works plays an important role in this aspect. Why a plus size woman be a model? Be a celebrity? Why they are obsessed with ‘zero figure’.

“Being fit is more important than to be slim”

Am fat, I still listen taunts from the people who very well know about my sufferings & health issues and why I can’t work out more. I know very few loves fat people other than parents but we also want love & respect.
