Plump Woman Proudly Flaunted Her Figure Promoting that Fat is the New Beautiful
People who appear healthier than others are usually bullied either blatantly or hideously. They are judged for being chubby, and often receive harsh comments from others who think that they look better than the ones they are bullying.
But in reality, they aren’t any better at all.
One of the persons who usually get this kind of treatment got fed up from being criticized based on her weight, which is why she had decided to put these judgmental people to their rightful places and uplift the spirits of those who experiences the same treatment as well.
Maru Guayco bravely posted her picture wearing clothes that ‘only skinny people can wear’ on her Facebook account and included her thoughts about body shaming.
Her post immediately went viral as a lot of netizens admired her courage to do such thing and defend herself from everyone’s prying eyes and hurtful comments.
Read her inspiring statement below:
“Honestly, I will never understand how being thin = beautiful or how the idea of being FAT is synonymous to ugly, lazy, unattractive or unhealthy. I actually am healthy. I never eat food that are too oily for me or has too much fat in it or too much sugar. I eat vegetables and fruits and I have certain food that I may only eat for a certain amount. So never tell me that fat is equal to unhealthy because some people are just fat. Period. I hate it when people tell me I would be pretty if I lose some weight or how I have a good sense of style even though I’m fat? Bullshit.
Honestly, the most beautiful, amazing, wonderful, extraordinary, fashionable people I know and absolutely adore are fat. Sometimes, I would even get hate from people who think I’m too confident with my body and for wearing clothes that “only thin people can wear.” Ulol. Okay, yes I am fat. No, I don’t owe you ANY excuses for my appearance. But I can share to you right now and for almost 2 months now, I’m trying my best to go to the gym every week, 4 times a week. I’ve been eating a limited amount of food during weekdays but I cheat during the weekends.
I am simply going to gym for a better life style, and not to live up to people’s expectations. Yes, I have bad days. Really bad ones. A lot of them where I don’t go to the gym and just eat whatever I want. Just like today, I just feel absolutely guilty whenever I eat something even though it’s a small portion. Ang hirap. Especially if there are days where I just want to give up but I could already hear every single person who once told me I can’t. But don’t worry, I won’t. I will certainly will not give up.
It’s just hard when you already hate yourself for being you and people around just bring you down even more. But that’s okay. It’s not about being skinny or for being fat for me whenever I go to the gym, it’s about owing to your body for giving it the right amount of food and exercise and for being healthy. So please stop the hate
Stop the stigma. STOP FAT SHAMING.
We are the new beautiful.”

Guayco’s message is indeed true. A person doesn’t need to be skinny just to be called beautiful, as beauty isn’t found in size, but rather in his/her personality.
Netizens who had seen her post admired her bravery for being able to show that beauty is not something that should be measured by the society.
Just because they appear larger than most people, it doesn’t mean that the skinny ones get any kind of privilege to look down on them.
True beauty is seen on a person’s deeds, not in size of their jeans.
