    Yeah, Lizzo!!! (I say as I finish my workout and eat a shrimp po boy and brownie for lunch.) It’s time the world realized that fit/healthy DOESN’T always equal skinny.

      Yassss! I told my doctor that I will workout more to help with my range of motion issues but don’t come at me with all this food restrictions crap. I don’t have diabetes or hypertension or any other disease related to weight, so we are good over here (me and my husband who likes the extra pounds 😂) #imdoingthisforme

    Those flowers bouquets are great!

    That Wizard of Oz Avengers thing. They did a really great job with Tom Holland as Dorothy, not so much with some of the others, but Tom Holland as Dorothy really works.

    Lizzo is beautiful.

    Have you seen her stage shows, nobody would have and maintain that kind of stamina without working out.

    Where people get the idea that all larger people are out of shape I do not know – do they not watch the NFL for example?

    • Krakken says:

      Exactly what I came to say. I seen her live and up close That girl is fit!! I love herrrr

    • ToLiveLikeWeRDying says:

      Such a good point about the NFL!

        It’s funny because I’m sure those that made fun of her thought Taylor Swift 1989 tour was peak body goals, meanwhile Taylor cane out to say she wasn’t eating and felt weak after every show. Skinny does not mean healthy.

      QUOTE: Where people get the idea that all larger people are out of shape I do not know /QUOTE

      I do. They get the idea so that it excuses their hatred and bigotry against anyone they deem unattractive. They can just pretend it’s about the economy or concern for health, but it’s really just hatred for people they find “not pretty.”

      It’s disgusting how dehumanized overweight people are in society and how psychotically hateful the general public behaves toward them. The presumed ownership of overweight bodies is particularly disturbing, as well.

      I have back problems that have required surgery and occasional steroid treatments. The difference in the way I am treated in those chubby phases (it takes a while to get rid of it every time) after being medicated and inflamed is astonishing, hurtful, and frankly disturbing.

    Lizzo has incredible breath control. She can dance while singing and then play the flute which requires a very focused breath. She is amazing and I love her and her message. She also sent food to front line hospital workers!

    Who in the world gets triggered by Sesame Street??

    I don’t understand bragging about eating unhealthy food and no vegetables. I got overweight by not eating enough vegetables, and now that I’m back on track I feel so much better. A bigger body can be in shape to some extent as know because I can out sprint my much thinner boyfriend but carrying extra weight makes everything harder in a general
    mobility sense. No eats perfectly healthy 100% of the time and no one has a perfect diet, but We shouldn’t brag about how much junk we are eating . That seems to be an “in” thing for some reason.

    • Marigold says:

      It’s a defense mechanism. The amount of hate this woman receives on a daily basis would lay me out flat. I won’t criticize her methods of psychological self defense against it.

      I agree with you that both thin and thick celebrities alike have begun proudly throwing out their junk food habits to defend themselves in interviews, but nobody EVER asks men to defend their diets, their figures, or their very humanity based on how “hot” they are on a scale from week to week.

    I bought a coloring book of Lizzo called 100 Percent That Lizzo. I find it very relaxing to color and have bought other body positive coloring books. I just use all my kid’s magic markers she outgrew years ago.
