  1. “when she realized that she can’t change who she is and she should be okay with it.”

    it’s called diet and exercise and it’s incredibly easy.

    • For some people she looked big all life its extremely hard for me to loose my stomach fat and ive played football weight lift run. The worx she might be big because of thyroid issues i think shes hot lol btw i weigh 208 5’8

    • It’s not that easy Daquan me as a 160lbs female I find it very hard to loose weight and don’t judge people. There in there own skin and know what there doing so please leave her alone I know how hard it can be. So don’t body shame. PERIOD. And don’t ever ASUME stuff like that bc u ain’t no girl.

  2. I think you are furthering the promotion of crap body image by reporting that Lizzo is 5’10 and 200lbs. I love her and I am extremely body positive, but Lizzo is definitely more in the 300lbs range. 5″10 and 200lbs is probably about a size 14-16 where as Lizzo looks about a size 24-26 and there is nothing wrong with that. I just don’t understand why you would be reporting her at being so much less than she actually is.

    • Maybe she has thyroid issue, I’m so tired of everyone stigmatizing overweight people without knowing the whole story. She confident and happy with who she is and that’s all that matters

  3. I can’t believe you guys and some of the comments. I guess when you have kids it makes you more sensible and less likely to hurt someone like the comments above would most definitely crush a person. And for what?
