Model Tess Holliday Wants People To Stop Commenting On Her Body
Model Tess Holliday spoke about her recovery from anorexia and the negative effects of comments on her weight.
The activist for mother and body positivity says she uses Pilates to cure her eating disorder and feed her body regularly.
But Tess says, "Hearing comments about weight is one hell of a thing."
Body positivity activist and model Tess Holliday, 35, had to deal with people commenting on her weight. She talked about why it is so frustrating - and dangerous - to keep paying attention to the size of your body.
Tess shared a series of selfies in a bright red sports bra and got real on the headline, "For those of you who keep saying," You look healthy lately, "or" You're losing weight, keep it up! " " Stop."
In case that wasn't clear enough, she repeated it again: "No. Comment. A. My. Weight. Or. Perceived. Health. Keeping. It. To. Yourself. Thanks?"
Then Tess explained her weight fluctuation: "Yes, I have lost weight - I am healing from an eating disorder and am feeding my body regularly for the first time in my life. If you equate weight loss with" health "and place worth and worth for the size of someone, you basically say we are more valuable now because we are smaller and we maintain the food culture ... and that's cheesy as hell. NOT for it. For people like me trying to reshape our relationships with our bodies & heal, comments hearing about weight triggers the hell out of it. It brings us back to our progress - and when people working on themselves see you commenting on me like that, it hurts YOU, not just me. I can take it (me shouldn't) I don't have to, but I can) but you didn't ask about this trauma, ok? If you can't tell someone they are good looking without saying about their height then baby please say You nothing at all nuthin. ""

The fans cheered her on in the comments: "Get it, mom. You look particularly radiant these days. Luck looks good on you."
Tess decided to share a little more about her journey on Twitter: "I'm anorexic and in recovery. I'm no longer ashamed to say it out loud. I'm the result of a culture that celebrates thinness and equates it with value, but I can now write my own story. I can finally take care of a body that I've punished all my life and I'm finally free. "
Tess previously shared that Pilates was key to her recovery.
She wrote in the headline: "Pilates has helped me heal my relationship with my body and I really feel connected: mind, body and soul for the first time in my life. I can't stop smiling ✨"
