BODY GOALS! They're the only things Bisola thinks about, and being called fat from a tender age didn't help matters at all, which led her to desperation and depression.
She's then left with only two options, to either keep working towards her body goals, or learn to love her body.

This story hit home for me, cause there are days when I just hate my body. But I'm getting better. I think it's stupid how people have decided that there is only ideal form of beauty and thinking on that usually snaps me out of it. Ruthie strikes again with this one.

While the story was nice to read, I feel like the chapters are way too short.

It is actually the that the media's portrayal of fat people is quite biased. They make it seem like of you don't lose those extra pounds, you aren't worth loving.

This is beautiful in way. Learning to love one self is difficult. Sometimes no matter how perfect you are, all you see is the flaws.

Well done to the author for addressing the culture of body shaming. I like that through one character we could see the perspective of other people who are shamed. Well done.

Awe. Sweet.

I did notice that there were some errors. Especially in the second paragraph. There were some words missing.

Beauty comes in shapes and sizes dear. What is the world standard today will fade away tomorrow and something else would replace it. There was a time big lips were seen as disgusting. It was associated with black slaves. Now, look at the world.
