Here’s what some of our favourite celebs can teach us about fat-shaming

With warmer months there usually comes skimpier clothes, which all too often comes with fat-shaming. That shaming can either come internally from our own thoughts, or externally from people who think it’s okay to bully someone for their weight.

Whether someone resorts to name-calling or says you shouldn’t eat dessert, the truth is it’s your body and not their business. Of course being healthy is important, but you can talk about that with your doctor ’bout all those details, and you can be healthy at different weights.

If someone tries to bring your day down, you just know you’re # 1, weight is not an automatic determinate of health, and you’re too busy doing awesome things to worry about what someone says.
