The brutal world and its standards discourage us more than really boosting our self-confidence. Body-shaming has become a negative norm of the society. Making even the most beautiful women insecure. So, we are here to tell you something. Girls, love everything about yourself!
Effects of body-shaming on mental health
Body shaming means to be judged negatively based on the physical appearance. Generally, women are more often fat-shamed if they appear overweight. They don’t fit the ideal image of thin and slenderly beautiful.

According to researchers at BullyingStatistics, thin-shaming is also a form of bullying. It leaves, especially teenagers, with crushed self-image and lack of confidence. They judge themselves and start hating their bad features totally ignoring their best parts. As adults, their mental state may deteriorate altogether.
Her boyfriend mercilessly fat-shamed her
I am 120 pounds. I have been for about 5 months.— shelbs (@babyyygucci) March 30, 2018
My partner said this to me. Am I overreacting for feeling hurt by this? I’m at a loss and just can’t even comprehend how someone who claims to love me can say this. pic.twitter.com/JpOrtkSZ4h
Shelby Johnson, 23, shared text messages on Twitter in which her boyfriend claimed she doesn't look like as she did when they first met. Said she has bulging 'beer belly' now. She told Health Magazine, exactly what he commented that broke her heart:
It’s not like I haven’t told you you’ve been gaining and needed to lose weight anyway. You’re definitely getting a beer gut babe.
My journey of my body has been long. In highschool I was 80-90 and my doctors never figured out why I couldn’t keep on weight. At 20, I started gaining. When i did, I never felt happier and more healthy. I worked hard for this body. I am 120 pounds of pure growth. pic.twitter.com/vyLGUuT0fu— shelbs (@babyyygucci) March 30, 2018
Shelby decided to share her anxiety with her supportive Twitter followers. Her years of body image struggle and frustration! That's when the people stepped in. Made her realize she is beautiful inside out and her partner doesn't even deserve her. They were outraged by her boyfriend fat-shaming her like that.
I haven’t been able to see him since I posted this. With the help of my therapist today I have a plan to end things and move on. I will be seeing him tomorrow and dropping a hefty 180 pounds. The support I got is amazing. I really thought only my few twitter friends would reply!— shelbs (@babyyygucci) March 30, 2018
She decided to dump him over the public's honest opinion about him. The split was tough for her as she loved him to bits. Shelby believes him to be a good person deep down but he has a lot of growing up to do. She was motivated to transform her body too but only for herself.
I ended up dumping this jerkoff the next day. Shortly after I found a very loving partner who I am gonna be celebrating 4 months with on Monday. He loves me and my body and constantly tells me how beautiful I am. ❤️ pic.twitter.com/EOiGo2Qhw1— shelbs (@babyyygucci) August 24, 2018
As a revenge, she lost a hefty amount of weight. Now, she is happy and healthy than ever. This gorgeous lady also found her true love soon enough. He seems to accept and love her in all forms.
Followers reacted to give the jealousy burn to her ex
He is totally missing the best of her now. A partner is supposed to be careful with words and direct judgment is unbearable. Guess, all her followers agree to it!
He's worried that she might look unattractive to him because she's getting a gut. God knows what he is going to do when she is 50 n start getting wrinkles. He clearly loves her for her body n not her heart. No over reaction, drop the lustful boys get a better man.— 🇩🇲🌴I'm not a person 🕊️🇩🇲 (@Ravendarlin) June 5, 2018
That’s not honesty, it’s wrong. You should never feel unworthy or not good enough we are all beautiful in our ways. Thank you for that though, made my day! How cool it went viral!— Denisa Cernatescu (@Denisa__C) April 3, 2018
He is literally body-shaming her. Words hurt. Now, @MousseauAustin, imagine she had an eating disorder; something like this could wreck her. "Honesty" according to you, is flinging something shallow and unfiltered at someone you're supposed to care for regardless of how they look— Athelise🎃🍭🍬 (@XylatheALL) April 9, 2018
He might be the reason behind her stunning transformation but bullying harshly is not the way. Nonetheless, some even called this situation an overreaction.
Your Definetly over reacting he was being completely open with you and you completely freaked out then put this on twitter so u could get all this attention you need to calm down and take a look in the mirror hes right! Stop going to twitter for attention deal w ur issues!— Austin Mousseau (@MousseauAustin) April 1, 2018
It's possible to be loved by someone even if you don't look like a model. Be your own greatest lover and admirer. Don't forget to share if you agree!
