Is Thin In?

For years comedian Mo'Nique has bashed and blasted skinny women and promoted the message of self-love to women who are plus-size. All of her jokes stemmed around why plus-size women were better and that skinny women can't offer men anything. She mimicked Beyonce and showed plus-size women that they could wear whatever they want (I don't agree with this! Skinny women can't even wear whatever they want lol) I applaud Mo'Nique and her confidence. She did not let her size deter her from her dreams of becoming one of the most successful comedians of our generation. It wasn't unitl recently Mo'Nique had a change of heart, which also resulted in a change of size being that she lost 40lbs.
Mo'Nique, the woman who let it be known that it was ok to have a little extra meat on your bones has lost weight and wants to lose more. So people are asking, "why does she want to be skinny?" Mo'Nique stated "it's not about being skinny, it's about being healthy." Mo'Nique is 5'6 and was over 200lbs. She was subjected to diseases like diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol and so forth. As a mother of 3 children, ages 3 (twins) and 19 she began to think about them. She said losing the weight has made a huge difference in all aspects of her life. She doesn't want to be the size of models you see in the magazine but she does want to live a healthier lifestyle so that she can be around to raise her children and God-willing see her grandchildren.

Sherri Shephard of the view also lost some weight 41lbs and she looks fabulous. It is one thing to be comfortable in your body, but be comfortable while being healthy. As stated in a previous post about self-image, every women isn't meant to be a size 2. Size does not matter, what matter is being healthy. Whether you are a size 4 or a size 14 you should exercise regularly and be selective of what goes inside of your body (food, drinks, etc.) You are stuck with that body for the rest of your life, so you should do whatever it takes to make sure you stay healthy. Kudos to Sherri and Mo'Nique for not only changing their size but also changing their lifestyle! Being healthy is a lifestyle and so lets do right by ourselves by doing right by our bodies.
