Just a shout out at the diversity I have been seeing while on-line shopping. It is something I am really happy to see. The various skin colors, hair types and body sizes are refreshing! Finally, I see people that look like ME! There are still some aspects that I am trying to fully embrace because for too long I was feed the lie of what the "desirable" body or hair type was. BUT I am changing and I am glad my children will not go through that brainwashing.

Wow PWC 1 and 2 thanks for taking a positive post and turning it into an attack on overweight people. Do you feel better about yourselves now? I hope no one ever judges you and writes you off just from looking at you and not knowing a damn thing about you. Must be nice to be perfect and better then everyone else in the world, good for you! 👏👏👏

PWC 1 and 2, hopefully you get some time to introspect on some of the comments on this post. Someone close to me suffers from depression and the the medication (SSRI) they take to keep them out of the rut unfortunately has side effects of weight gain; most SSRIs have this side effect in some people. There is nothing you can do about it, the benefits outweigh the risks. Another one- I successfully carried three babies to term but that came with a few unsightly pounds to my body. I’m working on my body, while caring for three humans; a fit body is not in my horizon for the next one or two years for sure. I’m all for maintaining a healthy lifestyle, mind, soul and body. You shouldn’t judge just because you are in a better place/position in your life as SM1 said. Life changes in an instant. Have an open mind and have some empathy, you don’t know what most of these people have or are going through.

I see lot of overweight models. I’d rather see the product and have the option to choose different models by size. I’m 5’8 and extremely fit. I very rarely see even lululemon models with real abs and muscular thighs. But not seeing pictures of me when I shop doesn’t hurt my self confidence.

You sound like me when I was super fit and judgmental of those that didn’t work as hard as I did to be healthy. But then I was diagnosed with an illness that essentially leaves me fat and bald and if that’s not karma clapping back I don’t know what is. Good luck.

We shouldn’t encourage people to be overweight. Different healthy bodies can look different, but let’s not pretend that being fat is pretty

How is saying that ‘being overweight is acceptable’ helping anyone? To fix a problem, you have to first accept that there is a problem. Everyone is not perfect just the way they are. We all should strive for constant improvement both individually and as a society.
