Healthy is the new skinny
Everyone knows Ashley Graham—both for her plus-size supermodel title and her outspoken commitment to standing up against body shaming. So there was no chance she wouldn’t snap back at a negative comment she received on a post of her working out in the gym. In a separate post, Graham addressed the haters, saying, “Every time I post a workout video I get comments like, ‘You’ll never be skinny, so stop trying,’ ‘Don’t workout too hard, you’ll get skinny,’ ‘You still need to be fat to be a model,’ and ‘Why would you want to lose what made you famous?'” she wrote via Instagram. “Just for the record, I work out to: stay healthy, feel good, get rid of jet lag, clear my head, show big girls we can move like the rest of ’em, stay flexible and strong, have more energy…I don’t work out to lose weight or my curves, [because] I love the skin I’m in…“ Here’s more on what we can learn from Ashley Graham’s body confidence.
