Look, if you love yourself just the way you are and mean it than good for you, but if you want to change than do it. just as long as you’re happy with the way you are and look. People can’t make you feel bad about yourself if you don’t give them power to.

Wow, lots of people who like to shame fat people are here. I always wonder if people like you are proud of yourselves and what you would do if you, your significant others and/or children got fat.

Laura, it’s not a contagious disease. Quit speaking of it as one. Then again, go ahead. I does make you sound silly.

I’m just saying you have people who just bash people because of their weight. it makes me wonder if you’re proud of yourself for doing it you have some people who just can’t lose weight without taking dangerous measures and also what’s the point in making someone feel bad about their selves?

Actually, fatness and obesity are the same thing. Maybe you are think obese and overweight? You can be overweight and not be obese. Obesity refers to body fat percentage.

Good for Jennifer Lawrence an fat and obese are not the same. Someone can be fat and still be healthy. Sumo wrestlers are fat and are some of the most healthy people in the world. Obese that is unhealthy and needs to be worked on. either way telling people they’re fat all the time is not helping the problem. I f anything it drives people to eat more so instead of being big douches that bully people because of their weight how about you idiots just shut up especially if they really do love themselves as is. They’re not hurting you by looking the way they are.

Gee Jennifer, illegal? Last I checked, we still have a first amendment. Besides, using the words obese, fat, etc., mean the same thing. It means, hey, you’re FAT! Do something about it!

And all you brain-dead idiots, illegal? Really? Greez.

You think Jennifer has baby fat cheeks. I think she has hot cheeks. I love the way she looks from head to toe.

I think Jennifer Lawrence is awesome for actually using her celebrity to take a stand on something she believes in. Good for her. Why don’t you two haters, @Christine and @Healthcare Professional try doing something positive instead of being haters?

Did you have an embolism recently? Because I don’t think that your 3 neurons work right.

If some people are fat, they can get in shape. But Christine, seriously, your brain isn’t going to get fixed. Go to see a doctor, you really need it.

You’re welcome!

No, and I actually haven’t seen that movie. I’m not into fantasy. You just sound really jealous and it sounds like you saw the movie.

Idiots like you are the reason eating disorders exist. All Jennifer is saying stop bullying people who don’t look the way you think they should. You should be happy a role model like her exist with horrible people like Miley and Rihanna running around.

I’m 5’8 and weigh 115, so no I’m not. I just don’t believe in bullying and don’t believe in tearing people down for no reason.

@Chris: You made yourself look like a gigantic moron with that comment. I can’t believe you’re actually trying to bash someone who’s not running around acting like a s!ut or a fame wh*re and is an actual positive role model for young girls. You are a piece of work.

I have to be fat because I agreed with what Jennifer said? If you must know I weigh 125 and I’m 5’9. I’m actually trying to gain weight.

Christine are you fat? Anyone you know? Do you want to be made fun of everyday for how you look or do you want to make fun of other people for it? Because if so they have websites just for that you know. Oh, and before you ask I weigh 110 at 5’2.

Good for her. Takes courage to speak out and stand up for what many people think but are to afraid to say for fear of being shunned by the HW community.

Another law to lead us to communism. This girl may very well be sincere with her concerns, however, more laws are leading us to communism. Since the 50’s it has been coming in through the back door. We have laws now which never existed and they are piling up. Education has a control on many people as more graduate agnostic. They don’t see it or recognize it but it is coming and we must take a look at what we are doing. The liber movement is a big stepping stone to communism. Sit back and think out side the educational box. Discipline and self-respect are needed to stop communism from happening in America. Take a good look at God. No matter what you may say He is still watching. His laws are the best ever given.

God Bless, Merry Christmas & Happy New Year,
Fran
