    I’m gonna have to agree with ‘I’m Not Obsessed’ this DOES seem to promote obesity. It’s one thing to accept your body and promote that but it’s another thing to tell people it’s OK to have heart disease, diabetes, etc because it’s socially accepted now.

    I kind of feel bad for who had to paint their bodies…..I have never heard of this show…I’m not bashing anyone who is overweight…but they are over-overweight. Its not healthy. Maybe if you have an extra 20-30 pounds…but this is just giving a wrong message…just like the super skinny girls out there….why not have average girls just pose????

    I dont think its nasty because they are fat. I think it sad that Monique would have a show that is promoting obesity. Obesity is serious and kills thousands each year, its not about being fat with a high self esteem its about being healthy and living a full life. There are so many diseases associated with being big and I think its ignorant of her to ignore that.

    Also if it were a few deathly thin models painted and nude I was have the same opinion but vis-versa

    Yo Says:

    She’s not promoting obesity, she’s simply saying that heavy women have just as much of a right to fashion as thinner women do. Where is she telling people to go get fat? The fashion industry tends to pretend women who are bigger don’t exist, the way it sounds like many of you would like to do as well. I’m not saying they look healthy, by any means but, come on, there’s no need to overreact.

Nobody is perfect…but you can say all u want about her…and i can guarantee that shes happier with her body and her life than you ppl making all these rudes comments about her.

There’s a lot of body types and health levels between THIS and STARVING. Put down the fast food!

Knowing most of the response of negativity I would guess ‘yes’. How cruel are the comments to Monique and the other ladies. Yes, the women are large but disrespeting them just makes you an ass. If you don’t like it don’t watch it or turn the channel heck turn off your tv sets and read a book. But get over your own meaness. Let them be.

    You’re so right. They should all go home and either shoot themselves or lock themselves in their homes without food until they come out looking like Tyra.

Not some commercial “promoting” anything. They appear to be unhealthy but unhealthy goes beyond appearance. It includes vitals and assortment of things. You are probably unhealthy with a disease that is less visual than theirs (if that is the case). Get a grip on the comments. “Promoting obesity”, now that is some stupid crap~

    Pehaps you’re trying to start an argument. Instead you need some educating- it’s not “always the black women who are fat. You know better than that. Obesity is a widespread problem among may. Blacks people have higher rates and I think you know why:
    History, poverty, oppression, racism, negative emotions, bad habits passed down to new generations-to name a few of the reasons why.

    I’m fat. The one on the far left with the cross? That’s more or less me; maybe not quite as thick through the tummy. And I’ll tell ya what: I’ve got a gorgeous, average-sized hubby who thinks I’m the sexiest thing to walk the earth. Two beautiful intelligent children (who, by the way, love to snuggle me because I’m so soft and fluffy). A great job. A small group of close friends. I volunteer. I donate blood. I recycle.

    Basically, folks, I’m a regular human with a normal life; I do all the same stuff the “average” people do. Really. And I’m so not about to get down because a group of people who could find fault with any goddess you put in front of them, think I should weigh less. Or think I look gross.

    If you don’t want to look at me, then by all means, look elsewhere. But grow up. Embrace diversity. Try finding the beauty in things rather than finding ugliness wherever you look; I promise it’s much better for your mental health.

    haha at comments, but feel sorry for the fat ladies.
    There are all kinds of things that people are doing that God didn’t mean for them to do. People abuse kids. Couples divorce. God doesn’t like that. Born short, born different races – you can’t help it. Obesity can be prevented and changed. If God wanted us to be fat, he wouldn’t have given us legs to walk and run. He wouldn’t have told man to work hard and labor for things we want. We also wouldn’t get so many horrible diseases from obesity if it was meant to be. The body is designed to MOVE and we were told to have control over our bodies, not the other way around.

    When women get this big, it’s almost too late. If they lose 100 pounds by diet or bypass they’re going to look bad anyhow. Then they need plastic surgery to get rid of excess skin.

    Anybody on their way to looking like these ladies, please get help now. Learn about food and eat healthy. Get out of the house, walk and have positive people in your life. You will be alright.

    Brandi Says:

    It seems to me that the definition of “thick” has changed, and not for the better. It used to refer to a girl who was a little “heavy,” but had curves for days in all the right places. Good examples today would be American Idol Jennifer Hudson from “Dreamgirls,” and Toccara, the plus-size model from America’s Next Top Model. It didn’t mean ladies as large as the ones featured in Monique’s F.A.T. chance.

    dudette Says:


    theyre not promoting obesity.

    You dont have a ******* clue if any of them have any diseases.

    Fat is not a disease. Fat is only a problem when people are discriminated against because of it, when people try to loose weight because they are fat, and when people eat the wrong foods.

    You dont have to eat the wrong foods to be fat. You dont have to sit on your ass all day to be fat.

    All you need is different genetics and a lifetime of a bad relationship with food, starving yourself to conform, which ***** up the metabolism of anyone.

    SOME PEOPLE ARE JUST BIGGER. Others have been made that way through societies awful discrimination and dismissal of fat people. Rarely is a person fat simply because they are gluttonous slobs.

    Either way, fat people are still human, still productive and still deserving of every human right a thin person is awarded. Shut the **** up about ‘its wrong to be fat’. In that case, its also wrong to drink, and to smoke and to have sex. Yeah. LIVING CARRIES RISKS. dont pass judgement on others who are no worse than yourselves and who you know nothing about.

    Ms. Defense Says:

    I guess ignorance still exists. Some of these comments are mean and hateful. I feel totally ashamed that these comments are probably coming from people of God. God made us in many ahapes, sizes and colors. And you people are passing judgement on folk, just because of a picture. These women may be large, but whose to say that these people are not healthier than you. Yes, obesity does have a number of ailments that come along with it — so does smoking, having unprotected sex, and doing drugs. Hell, some of the ailments that folk get is heriditary. All I can say to my fellow SISTAS is continue to love the person that you are. Unfortunately, there are a number of ignorant people that tend to judge people based on aesthetics and don’t take the time to get to know the person. And, there are teaching the same nonsense to their children, so basically ignorance begats ignorance. Don’t let that stop YOU for doing YOU! Also, take time to pray for these small minded people.

    anon Says:

    Actually black people are known to be muscular, tall and athletic. This is the reason so many have excelled at sports, etc. Their bodies are naturally of longer limbs and athletic. Obesity is an American problem – has nothing to do with race. Look around you or look at the statistics – women of all walks of life in America are obese whereas you can go to other countries and women are not that big.

    Have you seen the Masai women of Africa? Nearly seven feet tall, muscular and healthy looking. Sorry, obesity knows no race. So if we keep feeding our kids cancer inducing fast food – they will grow into fat people and it is not healthy. Big is ok, but unhealthy is unhealthy. Let’s beat high cases of hart disease by being healthier and having a weight that corresponds to height, etc.

    Monique should be proud of herself but I hope her show talks about healthy eating and lifestyle as well.

    Also when we see Roseanne Barr, Kathy Bates, Rosie O’Donnel, do we see why are all white women fat? Let’s get real. I look around my job and most women are heavy and they are not of just one race.

  65. 65
    Sandra Says:

    I disagree with anyone who says this is a sign of Monique, or indeed anyone, being comfortable with their bodies. Although I don’t think the picture promotes obesity, seeing that most are turned off by the mere thought of it, I do think it is a desperate attempt to show that these women can feel good about themselves. They may only be covered up by body paint, but I think it is a fair argument to say that most will instinctively experience a sensation of disgust when they see the above picture, and it would be naive as well as unrealistic of these women to think that the majority population would feel otherwise (although I am generalizing, I grant you).

    No one is indeed perfect, but it doesn’t mean one shouldn’t strive to improve upon oneself, in every respect, not just in terms of look and health. Letting oneself go in such a manner without a valid medical reason does imply that something else has also gone awry. The ability to take care of oneself should be seen as a priviledge, not a burden, not in our Western society.

    Those womens bodies makes me sick .No true reason for them to be nude and grossly obese.Its nasty just nasty and that is the truth- if they can strut their gross bodies on this show- eat right- exercise and stop snacking,if its a -gene factor- then you need to be extra careful with your food choices.
    Also alot of fat people smell- not all- but I work where its been a problem where they cant reach certain areas at all or well enough to clean properly.
    Another reaseon to try and stay fit.When others are subjected to taking care of their health and the body odor -a stranger who has to take care of you has to endure..someone said plane seats -that is upsetting for other passengers- when your fat rolls and smells are touching them. Excuses they make all the time- and obese- fat people- is unappealing.

    You go Ladies!! From reading most of the responses, I would guess your all still child minded since all you can do is see the negative. This is no different then society saying it’s ok to be gay. These women are bold, confident, and apparently have more going on then the rest of you since your watching them. Get a life and when you become perfect (or without sin) then you can throw the first stone. I don’t think they asked for any comments or your opinion. Live, Love, and Laugh; Life is to short for bs.

    Be anxious for nothing
    Ask for favor, speak positive
    Learn from the past, prepare for the future; & live
    in the present

    Commit to changing your negative attitude to

    not all black men love big women Says:

    Do you really believe fat people are happy with their weight? Do you think Monique and these ladies enjoy huffing and puffing to climb a flight of stairs? I’m totally sick of people thinking it’s okay to be obese when it is absolutely not. It’s okay if you have a death wish, but what about the pain you leave behind with your loved ones? I’m also tired of you making excuses for Monique because you are obese too and you don’t want to change. Shame on you! If you have ever been thin, you’d know the difference. How many fat people do you see walking around who are 80 and 90? How many? Very, very few. They either die or get really sick with a disease, heart attack or stroke and lose enormous amounts of weight just before they die. Film critic Roger Ebert is in that category right now. I don’t think he will live much longer. It’s downhill for him and I’m sorry to say that. He’s leaving behind a loving wife and successful marriage much too soon. Stop making excuses. Most people are obese not because God created them that way. And stop trying to convince everybody that you are so happy. They are not happy!. They are out of control. Most fat people simply eat too many calories because they are anxious and hurting inside. A person who really loves himself/herself takes care of their body. Get to the real problems and stop living in denial.

    Team Lara Croft Says:

    I agree that we need to think about being healthy and eat well etc. And body fat is a sign of ill health many times because it affects the heart and blood sugar levels, etc.

    Here is the question – until women who are overweight get to a healthier weight, what shoudld they do? Should a woman NOT embrace her body no matter what stage it is in?

    We are all a work in progress but if it takes a woman a year to lose 50 pounds, during that year she should fully embrace her body and feel bautiful.

    Self-ate and self-attack will only keep overweight people overweight.

    You have to practice self-love even when you are losing the weight and say “I am beautiful even if I am 200 pounds because beauty is in the inside but I want to be healthier”. I think overweight women who talk to themselves in this way will have an easier time losing weight. This is a proven fact.

    So Monique is doing a good job of loving herself.

    I agree she should talk about being healthier as well. I agree with that.

    BTW, to the idiot who brought up color for no reason: only 3 of the women above are black. Duh!

    cheryl Says:

    I got a friend who use to be 150 pds at most. She’s cute, had a decent job and money to spend, boyfriend she loved. Friend got laid off, couldn’t get another job-she’s from country, uneducated – just h.s. ed. Boyfriend got another woman pregnant so he was out. My friend has low self esteem especially after the breakup and wouldn’t try to better herself (scared-feels not good at school)and kept hoping to get rehired at job laid off fm. In few yrs only gained alot of weight -now close to 250. Works a menial job for many yrs w barely enough money to survive.

    When I look at it, her weight is not the main issue. It is the other issues she’s not dealing with-low self esteem, not getting better trained for better job and not having another man in all those yrs.

    Hard to say. Obese girls getting happy can work either way. Sometimes they tell themselves they’re happy so they can stay big and like, ‘I like me-you accept me like I am’ – Star Jones attitude before surgery. When watchng programs on TV dealing with obesity, most people have to get disgusted w themselves to finally get fed up and do somethng about it.

    Think if my friend faced her demons and got happy again with life, fat would melt off her body slow and easy. She was most of her life a decent size. She eats because she’s unhappy with her situation.

    5’6″ and 239 pounds. You got back. Oh, and I guess you would describe yourself as “curvy” as well….


    Thinner women are good in bed too and they have more stamina for their men. Men can pick them up and put them into various positions. Not you.

    That fat didn’t fly through the air and land on your body. Your ranting is one huge excuse.


    Like said above, keep on eating. Keep on stuffing your cheeks and thinking you are lovely and attractive, and die. Your husband will become a young widower who will have to find another wife and mother for your children.

    I guess to you the food is worth that.

    I’ve got to comment again here. There’s nothing else as intresting.
    I didn’t say it before but I think we should accept obese people we come across daily (don’t hurt them, be mean, make faces) but we should not accept obesity as ok. Its a national health crisis and we should keep focused on how to help people overcome it. It will be horrible for our country if the stats on obesity keep rising and soon almost 100% people are overweight. Productivity will go down because of sickness.

    I dont think Mo is promoting obesity. I think she’s simply proving a point that big woman should feel just as sexy as thinner woman do. I think Mo believes that woman who are overweight are looked over because of they weight. If you dont like it, you dont have to look at the pictures. I think its art. Art comes from the heart no matter how it is presented. Those woman have the right to feel sexy.Mo gives them the chance to let the world see it, for other woman thew same as them to see it.I met Mo in Baltimore,MD, is real cool and she means no harm. Its all how you take it.So you know what that means if you dont like it, more for others to love…. peace and love

    Big beautiful woman, most of us don’t hate fat people. We all know obese family members and friends.

    We’re just saying don’t try to shove it down our throats that obesity is the ideal and that it’s beautiful to look at when it’s not. It might be nice for a man to ‘roll around’ in with the lights off. Men love soft and spongy women bc it feels good, but there is nothing beautiful about huge saggy breasts, dimpled wobbly thighs, stretch marks and a butt and hips that go out to here————-. Ok? Love yourself, but don’t accept that you are fat and shouldn’t try no more to do anything about it. A lot women are saying that and they are fooling themselves. Appearance means a lot in this world. That’s the simple truth. I have observed that fat women get ignored by the majority of men much of the time. Many sit frustrated at home alone and can’t stop eating.

    Monique turned me off when she went on The View wearing a dress or skirt with unshaven, hairy legs and had the nerve to show the audience and viewing public. Gross and Nasty! Her overblown, inflated ego is way out of line. She is too desperate to convince the public that she can do anything a thinner woman can do. Wrong!

    That big girl who cohosts on The View a lot now, Sherri Shepherd, is much, much better. She’s prettier, she looks well-groomed, she’s funny and she has a more pleasant personality.

    Fat women need a better representative than Monique.

    nathan taylor Says:

    Listen I personally dont believe she is promoting obesity. I think shes just tying to say what shes been saying which is big girls can be sexy too. And as a big girl myself I do agree with the overall message. At the same time I do believe she is going about it in completly the wrong way. Though the photos are of class I think that the girls represented in the photos need to come to realize that big girls aren’t the only ones viewing the pictures. That there are people out there who view these pictures with the specific intent to ridicule and mock these girls and girls like us who may look simular. I’m embarassed by some of the comments made but I am even more ashamed by the way this positive message was portrayed. Monique has a civic self-proclamed duty to the big girls of the world to shield us from this type of negative press and I cant believe that someone who lives in the spotlight neglected her responcabilities. Us big girls have secrets about our bodies that were not ashamed of but at the same time didn’t want the whole world to know about. Its hard enough on us out there in the real world trying to find companionship. And that was when people didnt know what we looked like under our clothes. All they could do was speculate. Now that our secret has been exposed its going to be even harder for us to fit into societies standards of what’s bueatiful. Im 17 growing up 5’6, 190 pounds and I only view this picture as added pressure on girls like me to fit in. We get the picture Monique, big girls are bueatiful, but enough is enough!!

Mo isn’t out there tellin people it’s okay to be FAT but that if you are you can still be beautiful while being FAT…she does promote eating healthy but NOT to starve yourself like some of you idiots out there who think that in order to be IN then you have to be a size triple ZERO…the best example of someone who needs to eat something because she looks like a skeleton is Nicole richie…if you girls out there think that’s cute then you need to be shot because that isn’t healthy at all

    obese women are stubborn as mules Says:

    Monique believes in healthy eating.
    Definition of healthy eating: Eating large portions of food throughot the day. Anybody as big as Monique and most of her pals has an addiction. She’s a SLAVE to food. Most people have problems they can hide in their mind or behind closed doors. The problem obese people have is YOU WEAR YOUR PROBLEMS ON YOUR BODY. PEOPLE LOOK AT YOU AND ALREADY KNOW YOUR LIFE IS FILLED WITH ISSUES YET YOU PRETEND THAT YOU’RE HAPPY LUGGING AROUND THAT HEAVY BODY. People are going to make assumptions about you until the fat lady sings. Obese people are quitters, but they don’t want the public to know it.

    Monique is OBESE. Nicole Richie is UNDERWEIGHT. They are two extremes. I wouldn’t want to look like either one of them. THEY BOTH LOOK SICK!

    obese women are stubborn as mules Says:

    SRAB Says:

    I can see where some may say ewww, gross! and more so.. But to you, you are only looking at what u see. You dont find big women or anything about being fat attractive so your reaction is predicted. But to the men and women out there who are big, and who find big women attract this is a big step. Mo Nique didnt just do this to show how she looked without her clothes. She didnt it because she is tired of big women always looked over as there is something wrong with it. When SLIM MODEL kill them trying to be thin. We live in a society that shuns women because they dont fit the perfect size. Our society thrives off who has this, what size they wear and etc. Mo Nique is not promoting obesity. If you paid attention to what she says and not what u see.. you would know that she encourages women to lose weight. Thought Mo Nique is 200+ she is in perfectly good healthy. She works out daily, and has positive eating habits. Its amazing to me how quick people are to amuse things. How do u know any of these women have diabetes or heart diease. Are you saying that they are not skinny people out there that dont have similar dieases. I think that some of you need to check ur response. IF U DONT LIKE IT THEN ****…DONT LOOK! IF YOU DONT HAVE ANYTHING NICE TO SAY THEN ****..DONT SAY ANYTHING THING!…LOOK AT WHAT U LIKE AND KEEP UR NEGATIVE OPINION TO URSELF..and have a nice DAY!

    Angie Says:

    Well I think it’s not reasonable to respond with “ewwww”. The show is about women accepting themselves and loving their bodies and that is a healthy idea whether you are thick or thin. As a svelte 5’8″ person (used to be a four now a ten) I have to say I was obsessed with being a size 4 – 6 and when I gained due to some medical issues, I was immediately upset at being larger. Although I think there are WAAAAAAAAAAY better role models for heavy women (Oprah, Queen Latifah, Emme) at least she’s making an effort. I would rather see women just being women, not having to do beauty pageants or other crap just to prove they can compete with thin women. Let’s face it, if you’re ugly, you won’t model. Should Mo’Nique’s next project be “Inner Beauty” pageant?

    here we go again Says:


    So, she’s on a CRUSADE to try to convince the rest of us that fatness is attractive.


    Obesity is not beautiful to look at. It’s not healthy. It’s not the ideal. It’s the extreme. Too much excess fat makes attractive features on the human form disappear. Muscles are hidden. Trim shapely legs will look like swollen sausages. Where are your ankle bones? A smooth firm booty looks like wobbly chunky blob. Where black girls get off thinking the fattest butts and hips look good is hard to understand. A full round firm butt, yes. A humongous fat lumpy rear-end, no. It’s not pretty. It has no uniform shape. Some men just like being “swallowed up” that’s all. In bed, they are excited, but many of them don’t want to be seen in public with obese women.

    The individual shape that distinguishes one body from the next almost all but disappears. When people get too fat their bodies start to look alike.

    I hope society never changes its standards. Once society okays it, people will give up trying, get lazy and overeat more. When people say they accept their obesity, it’s another phrase for, I DON’T WANT TO TRY ANYMORE TO LOSE WEIGHT. You think that’s a good positive attitude? Life affirming?

    I’ll tell you what, it’s a horrible philosophy to accept. Will you ever say that alcoholism is ok? What about drug use? Jumping from bed to bed? No. Never. This is not rocket science here. This is your body you are talking about. There IS a right and a wrong. We need food to live, but overeating will kill you.

    Monique looks bigger than ever. It’s obvious that with her money, she is not even trying to get any weight off. I don’t like her personality either. She’s aggressive and loud.

    If the above FAT PACK aren’t sick now (and they could be – the drs just haven’t discovered it yet), there is a great chance they will be when they get a little older. Fat people love to say they are healthy, but the truth is they are not. It will hit them just like it hit actresses Nell Carter and Mabel King, who literally lost both her legs! They are prematurely headed toward disease and illness. How can you be so blind to try to justify obesity?

    If you want to be fat, stay fat. If you say you can be obese and be happy, I’ll never believe it, but good for you. Just stop trying to right a wrong.

    first of all, all those hatin on Mo need to go to hell. Secondly just because she isnt a size 0 doesnt mean sh?t. she is beautiful however big or small she may be the picture is tasteful and artistic. besides she is teaching women how to love themselves no matter if they r a size 0 to a size 26. be big is beautiful and if you cant except it so what. what you can go do is go crawl back into the hole you slide out of. because it people like you that give plus size women a hard time because they are not a size to all ya’ll hatin go to hell!!!!!!!!!

    p.s the avarage female is a size 16 if you didnt know.

  96. 96
    p.s. Says:

    More like a size 14, sister. If the average is a 16 now, it’s because people are getting fatter by the year.

    Monique is NOT beautiful. A lot of black people can’t stand her. She has a big mouth and is an embarrassment half the time.

    A little overweight is not obese. These girls are obese. The purple/pink one in the front and center has a huge tire around her belly, and the one in back had the nerve to give a profile. They look horrible.

    Fat people ae sensitive, get offended easily and act like everybody wants them to be a size 0. You know what looks good and what doesn’t, so stop the madness and the lies. A little overweight is not bad, but once you start hitting the 200 lb mark, you need to HALT and get some help right now before it’s too late and before you are 300 lbs, totally out of control and in need of a gastric bypass surgery.

    We don’t need to encourage any more people to become obese. That’s what Monique wants to do. She wants the public to think obesity is as beautiful as being normal weight. It’s not. It’s plain to see what I and others above note. The human body is stretched out of shape. Breasts are left hanging. Diabetes creeps up and obese people’s legs and feet develop ulcers and nasty sores. It looks sick. It’s not pretty. Stretch marks and lumpy legs. Rolls. Need we keep this going? It’s not beautiful to look at, though some of these women are beautiful people inside.

    NYMedStudent Says:

    As of 2007, about 66% of Americans are considered overweight or obese. It seems to me that almost everyone knows someone that is overweight or obese. So I’m not really sure who these idiots are that are calling these women gross and nasty. Obesity has a strong genetic component, and while obesity itself is not necessarily a disease, there are pathologies that are associated with obesity, e.g., metabolic syndrome, diabetes, an array of cardiovascular disease, and stroke, etc.. Also, there are some genetic metabolic disorders that virtually guarantee obesity.

    So, why do so many people have this propensity for being overweight? Simply, the ability to carry extra energy in the compact form of fat is an evolutionary advantage. This really came in handy when food was scarce. Which is to say that people that are prone to thinness (myself included) would probably die during times of famine. So, an ability to pack on extra pounds, up until recently, was a survival advantage. Culturally, voluptuous women have not always been shunned, in fact they were once considered very attractive (and still are by many… myself included). To think the opposite now just shows how easily you are lead by the mass media (thin does NOT necessarily = beauty… try being an independent thinker!).


    Body mass index (BMI) = kg/M^2
    BMI = pounds/inches^2 x 703

    I really believe there are a lot of people who do not consider themselves over weight yet in truth they are… here it is:

    BMI > 24.9 = overweight (example 5’10″ and 174 lbs.*)
    BMI > 30 = obese
    BMI > 35 = morbidly obese

    *174 lbs is not alot at 5’11″ if one is muscular and has little fat.

    Now something to consider is that if you’re overweight you are at an increase risk for diabetes, along with all the associated pathologies that go along with diabetes. So, you can talk about what is healthy, but if you’re 5’10″ and weigh 174 lbs, plus add to that they typical internet surfing couch potato –> you’re at an increased risk for diabetes. In other words, what is considered a healthy BMI is considered too thin to most people… and guys really don’t want to be that thin for fear that they’ll be considered scrawny and weak (it’s the American way). Anyway, I get the feeling there are a lot of guys on here calling these women nasty, gross and unhealthy, but it like the pot calling the kettle black.

    Plus, if you carry your weight in his gut (central obesity = “Beer-Belly”)… as most guys do, you are at an increased risk for diabetes.

    Not to mention, as mamy people age their BMI slowly creeps up.

    But, what if you’re not overweight? You probably know someone who will be affected by weight related illness.. or at the very least society (and YOU) has to pay for the care of these people.

    So no, being overweight/obesity is not a disease per se, but it comes with a toll. In terms of the nasty comments… it makes you wonder why anyone would be so disgusted by a big woman… perhaps like the lady, they complain too much; what dark truth are you hiding?

    Chunky/large/plus size/fat women can be cute and sexy just like thin women, unfortunately they are at an increased risk for associated diseases (although osteoporosis is not among them… that is a thin women’s disease). However, perhaps by these women possing as they do here, we can have a dialog, do less name calling, realize that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, look inside ourselves for why we behave so badly before we’ve given thought to a subject.

There are big people who are large larger than some but just as HEALTHY as thin people who have diets just as unhealthy and fattening as some.

    I’m pretty sure that if all those women were thin and sexy looking, there would be completely different comments made.

    My eyes are open Says:

    My mind is open.

    Unfortunately, so are my eyes.

    Fat is NOT where it’s at.

    I don’t know 1 woman who likes being fat. Yes, there are a lot of liars out there. They’ll lie to their grave. They say they don’t care because they are in denial.

    Monique is in denial too. That’s why she’s willing to allow her handsome husband to cheat on her. She said she will not divorce him for cheating. Why? She feels LUCKY to be an obese woman who landed a good-looking man. That guy can probably do anything to her and she will just hang on to him.

    Monique is just insecure because she is obese. That’s why she needs to pull stunts like the above to get attention.

    The female body is naturally supposed to have curves. Women bear babies. Thirty pounds overweight is medically obese, but many can get away with it and still look good and healthy

    But obesity??????

    You need glasses if you think 250 pounds looks good on a person. Get your eyes checked or your head examined.

    The ignorance of the people on this forum is AMAZING!!! I have followed Moniques career for years! Why don’t you read her book Skinny girls are evil before you judge! She is not promoting obesity in the least! Her Show F.A.T was to let women who are big know that they are somebody and to boost their self esteem. Only in America is a big person especially a woman is looked down on!! If these same women were in Africa, they would be worshiped as they hate skinny women and they feel that being skinny is a disease! The other thing is people who cannot help they are overweight due to a health issue! My wife is one of them as she has a Thiroid disorder. This not only causes her to gain weight, but also prevents her from conceiving a child. She was a thick girl when we met but not fat. She was able to give me a beautiful daughter and then her Thiroid went out of wack. Now she has gained a bunch of weight and no matter what she does cannot loose it due to this disorder! In closing the women you make fun off is more in demand then any skinny woman alive! They have their own dances and groups called FA (Fat Admirers.) You have men of all colors usually fit and skinny looking for these women!! I know a white guy who is a cowboy who weights 102 pounds and his wife who is white(I point that out since someone said that only black women are big) weighs 500. I personally like a big woman. There are things they can do that a small woman cannnot. And being that my family is in the medical profession, there is a such thing called a healthy fat person! Look it up. So those of you who judge we cannot see you. You could be just as fat as these girls and trying to fit in while you hide behind your keyboard!!! So I say to hell with all of you who judge and know nothing! You go girls and let no one ever tear you down especially ass holes who don’t realize that when their skinny ass women start having babies, they are not going to be that skinny!! Oh yeah one more thing. At old age gravity will take hold and so will looking old and being fat!! Do not believe me? Go look at some old pictures of women in your family, and then look at them now!!!

    Skinzart Bodyart Agency Says:

    Being a bodypainter myself I think I can reply to this one and explain from an artist perspective. The bodyartist dont see race or size,we see a blank canvas. No matter what the canvas is such as a wall or human.We visualize the world as blank canvasses where our art can add awareness and share a story. I think everyone involved with this project is awesome. I always want to bodypaint plus size women because of their curves and the special challenges as an artist that I can gain from.
    Love is Love no in between….If we dont love ourselves then who will love us??? This project was not intended for you and others who can not see beyond the weight…. but the message is very clear for those that it was targeted to. I hope this helped in understanding the perspective from an artist.
