Lizzo has been clapping back at people fat shaming her on one hand and being angry with her on the other because she wants to lose weight. However, the one thing you won’t do to Lizzo is tell her how she should feel about herself and her body. Several weeks ago Lizzo clapped back at an Instagram troll who asked her what it was like to live life obese. And that’s just the tip of the f*ckery that Lizzo has to deal with. The good news is, despite some of the negativity, Lizzo manages to stay authentic and honest about her struggles. In a new TikTok video, Lizzo encourages people to love and embrace their bodies. While eating her favorite snack of pomegranate seeds in coconut water, Lizzo dropped a few nuggets about people having different body types. Lizzo went on to say that not everyone is meant to be slender with a six pack. Below is a transcript from her TikTok “Ted Talk:”
I just wanted to say, I’ve seen a few of these videos about fat girls who eat healthy and stay active but can’t seem to lose weight
I think these kinds of videos are important, whether they intend to lose weight or don’t want to lose weight, just to show that every single body is different, and how it functions is different.
What really bothers me are the fake doctors in the comments. ‘Oh you have this or you might have this condition.’ No, what if I’m just fat? What if this is just my body? Bodies are not all designed to be slim with a six pack.
If you’re feeling down on yourself today, just remember your body is your body. Nobody’s got your body. So just enjoy that bitch.
Everybody just needs to leave Lizzo alone! Full stop. As someone who is definitely struggling with getting my body healthy while battling my unhealthy craving for everything fried, I feel Lizzo. I know I will never be a size two and to be fair nor do I want to be. But I love when I’m feeling healthy and happy and my body isn’t currently there. I also agree with Lizzo when she says a lot of plus size girls are active and eat healthy but are still overweight and they shouldn’t feel shame about their bodies. Yes, there may be something physically wrong with their digestive or hormonal systems but honestly they just may be built to be more “stockier” than others.
I love how Lizzo calls out the fake doctors leaving comments on what people should do. I have had more than enough people, particularly men, telling me what I am doing wrong health-wise and that I need to try this, that and the third. My response is always, Dude, I didn’t ask you. In my opinion, no one (especially men) should be commenting on any one else’s (read women’s) bodies. It is no one’s business and I wish people would just shut the f*k up and stop projecting their insecurities on everyone. Anyhow, Lizzo is a boss and I am so happy for her continued success in all her endeavors. And I am sure she is doing what is best for her and her body. If that leads to a slimmer physique good for her and if it doesn’t, also good for her. Either way Lizzo is beautiful, sexy and confident and that’s all that matters. Lizzo should be able to live her best life for her and not have to be anyone’s poster child.
From one fat girl to y’all. With love 😘
