Next Month Jennifer Hudson will grace the cover of Good Housekeeping. I am so happy for Jennifer and all of her weight loss success, but it seems to me that some people in the plus size community are a bit bitter and angry with Jennifer. I have never and will never understand the outrage from some women in the plus size community when celebrities lose weight. People like Star Jones I have no respect for.......to outright lie about having surgery and then expect to be respected NO I will not consider u a weight loss success story. Monique screaming for years she hates skinny b**ches and then losing weight was pure comedy. I didn't respect Monique when she was bigger b/c calling fat people fat is the same as calling skinny women skinny bitches...her behavior was tactless, rude, and
to me Monique was the epitome of ratchet (personality wise). Jennifer says she used Weight Watchers to lose the weight and I believe her because unlike some celebrities who dropped the weight she still has curves and looks very toned which means she exercised. Star's skin still looks loose because she obviously did not exercise.
I don't expect every fat celebrity to stay fat just b/c I am happy with my weight. Face it: Everyone doesn't want to be plus size and everyone is not happy plus size and for those people who choose to lose weight for WHATEVER reason I congratulate them for taking the reigns and doing what makes them happy....I am a weird case b/c I didn't become plus size until college but I love my body more with curves than when I was smaller. I do still however try to make healthy eating choices and exercise to keep my figure toned.
I said all that to say this: STOP the negativity..saying Jennifer looks hungry, like a bobblehead, etc (and countless other mean remarks I've read and heard since her weight loss). Plus size women encounter enough negativity from society...we don't need to be rooting against each other....anything over a size 10 is plus size so STOP saying this person or that person isn't big enough to be considered a plus size blogger or a representative of the plus size community. Jennifer looks great ...we just weren't used to seeing her this size and it will take a minute before we get used to it....I am not trying to lose this amount of weight but I am taking a page out of Jenny's book and putting my best foot forward in the gym and at the table this year when deciding what to eat/cook. The last year of my 20s is approaching swiftly and I want to be fab, curvy and fit when I hit my 30s.
Until Next Time,
