great face and body. what is a size 12 UK in US sizes? I thought it was a 6, but she looks larger than that.

kate
Guest
kate

UK size 12 = Size 8 US.

I think she looks more like a UK size 14-16 (US 10-12) considering her height.

Would be interesting to know her stats.

kate
Guest
kate

Actually she could maybe be a UK size 12/14 (US 8/10), but because she has a small frame for her height and lacks muscle there is more fat making her appear bigger?

I read she is a 30F, so her bust is probably around 36-38 inches and I’d guess her waist is at least 30 inches and hips at least 40 inches.

It’s fine to have a different opinion, but there is also a classy way to make a comment about someone who doesn’t have your “ideal” body. Calling someone “unattractive” is the same thing as “ugly.” That itself is rude and not very tactful. Case and point, the comment below saying this reminds them of the “girls from school.” That comment sounds like it was made by a very immature girl who is insecure with themselves so they like to make fun of other people. Why doesn’t everyone grow up a little and try not to make comments that are nasty… Read more »

People can’t really help it if they find someone ugly and I don’t think they should have to hide that from others.

Most people think I’m ugly. You just get over it. Karma is a pointless thing to point out because it doesn’t stop people from being nasty. They enjoy lording over people. Ignore them or tell them what idiots they are. Always look on the bright side, one day THEY will be the fat, old, ugly woman no one wants to look at and then they will know exactly what that kind of pain is like.

Well don’t you just have me all figured out! I’m allowed to find thinner bodies attractive. You all say gross when you see a rib poking out and scream anorexia. How are you not immature?
She has a nice face, I’ll agree with that. I just don’t find her body attractive the same way people don’t find skinny attractive. humph.

I get what you are saying women are hard on themselves and we ALL hold strong opinions. mine is that all types of women are beautiful BUT if i had a preference id pick athletic hourglass builds( neither thin or “overweight”)
but i also get her point, she has the right to think thin is great. im just hoping ur thin to say it. but at the same time…u could of just said” i don’t find her to be that attractive. not” what do u find attractive?”

How is a size 8-10 chubby? You really think SHE is chubby? I’m sorry, i’m a size 12 and barely overweight for my body frame. i could lose 20 lbs and look great in a bikini top and shorts. that’s not much weight and i’d still be about a size 10 cuz that’s just my body frame. my body is built larger, so if i weighed any less than 130 i’d look unhealthily skinny. I think she’s beautiful. i think women are beautiful if they are confident. i’m not saying everything she said is perfect but still. geeze. what’s wrong… Read more »

She is out of proportion! Her hips are far too wide. (of course it is difficult as the was measurements are taken in circumference.)

Kae

Her hips don’t look out of proportion but she does gain weight in her hips. Those are two separate things.

Xv44
Guest
Xv44

Sorry wrong proportion = 10 inch drop from bust to waist and 10 inch rise from waist to hip. The old standard of 36-24-36 had a 12 inch differential. The studies of form find the for peoples never exposed to media the proportionate is most accepted.

Sharen
Guest

no, I understand what Mimi means, it’s not about the size, it’s about the shape, she reminded me of Brooklyn too, but you can´t see it in all the picks, just in the candids. It could also be that the bikini is too small for her.

i agree! i was just thinking, its like she was meant to be an apple but got big hips too. her body looks good, but i just think its not the ideal hourglass that she is marketing herself as.

How is that not attractive, she looks healthy, happy and has wicked curves. It’s nice to see someone who has a more relatable figure then a someone painfully thin.

haha bitter woman!!!
Saying ban all size 0 models is just as discriminating against larger models. urghh i hate it when “curvy” women go on about how skinny women are bad and ugly and unhealthy etc….
sorry but i would not attend a show where a size 14 5’3 model came out. not because its unattractive but because fashion is about fantasy and the unreal.

Lia
Guest

agreeed

ana
Guest

Funny, I thought fashion was about designing and manufacturing clothes for people to wear, to inspire new ideas and push the boundaries concerning attire.
Although it is a creative industry it certainly isn’t one about fantasy. That is just designer’s spew which promotes the idea that you have to have some unattainable figure (which it is for the majority of the female population) in order to work in fashion.
As long as you are happy and healthy who gives a s— if you are a size 12? I don’t.

anon
Guest
anon

Whilst fashion is a creative industry it also feeds off the idea of the fantasy and the unattainable. How else would magazines sell you things. The tall thin physique is one that only a few have naturally, so clearly there is an element of the slightly unreal. Thats what make fashion work. I agree that if you’re healthy it should not matter what size you are, but for her to say that all size zero models should be banned does not comply with this message.

ana
Guest

Fashion should sell because of the beauty of the clothes, not because the model wearing it has a low bmi.
Although there are women who are naturally slim and healthy, I doubt that no one is naturally a size zero. The majority of models used who are a size zero are below the age of eighteen. Whereas before the unattainable was realistic, i.e “you have to have money to look this good”, now it is “you have to have a pubescent figure to look this good”.

balthazar

ana says:

it has nothing to do with bmi. the reason tall thin models are predominately used is because the majority of designers want a coat hanger type so the designs fall a certain way; just like they would hanging on a coat hanger. that is how it started a very long time ago. some designers have tried to break this mould.

Rio
Member

Size 0 please refer to the charts from 1960 today’s size 0 would be a 4 in 1960. It is her idea that only hippy fat models because she is a pear shape but she could look a lot better toned!
Worse is using BMI as a standard which is silly. Most athletes have a higer BMI look thin because of the muscules

anon
Guest
anon

yes and it is. my point is that it is stupid for her to want to ban all size 0 models. anyhow it is also cheaper for designers, why would you make 20 size 14 dresses when you can make 20 0s for half the price. And clothes hang better on the skinny models. period.
Why do fuller figured women like her feel the need to attack skinny ones its just annoying, just be happy with what you have and stop sniping at others! thats my point.

She is sour because she wanted to be high fashion and isn’t.

Ana

I agree that designers may use tall thin women so that the garments fall in a certain way, although you would think they could design clothes that would augment and flatter women’s curves….however since when did a model’s figure become so coveted?? I don’t know about you, but I feel like every magazine has some diet or advert promoting the size zero type figure. I just think its a bit unattainable and that fashion and thinness shouldn’t go hand in hand.

sue
Guest

Rio, what are muscules?

Casey
Guest
Casey

Agreed.

I might even find the whole “let’s get rid of size 0’s” more believeable if it was coming from someone like Doutzen Kroes or a normal sized model who has a great body but is being discriminated agaisnt.

But when it’s coming from someone who is flabby and borderline overweight, I can’t help but feel that it’s just straight up bitterness. Because to be at that position is technically as bad as being borderline underweight (not that I personally have a problem with either group modeling).

Louise
Guest
Louise

I totally agree. I think she looks pretty unhealthy. If you look at her arms, they’re quite slim. Whereas the rest of her body is pretty flabby. I actually think she must be over-eating a LOT to put that much fat on what nature intended as a slim frame (judging by the arms). She must be eating 2,500-3,200kcals a day to maintain that much extra weight. And there is not even a hint of muscle tone so I don’t think she does any exercise.

fashion is about clothes, the models are completely irrelevant to me. i am interested in what people look like (why i am here), but have no issue if people want to be 8 stone or 28. it’s their body their life, and as all the many varied opinions on this site show, you’ll never get people agreeing regardless of the size of ‘role models’ out there. so while i feel sorry for all the poor models out there, starving themselves, the only thing i would ban is children from the catwalks. too many high fashion models are recruited as young… Read more »

uh…i think fashion is about making clothes that will look good on people. and i agree that if the clothes look good on a model, people will buy them because they will think they may look the same….but to me, the ‘fantasy’ and unattainable is something like kelly brook – slim, curvy, big breasts,..i think the runway models are thin because then the clothes cannot fit poorly and there is nothing like great b❆❆bs or butts to distract from the clothing. that is why they are on the runway, the ‘showcase’ for the fashion itself, and why clothing is displayed… Read more »
anon
Guest
anon

haha im 17 so not any. I just follow fashion and i agree with you that b❆❆bs and butt distract from the clothes and this is the last thing designers want. so my point being based on the fact that in the 80s there was the whole supermodel thing with their bodies being the central attraction and then designers then back clashed and there was the waif look. fashion is about clothes and runway is not for “normal” people, so it caters for those who have the money to buy the clothes and the time to create the “ideal”.

Rio
Member

Not unattainable. It is the fact that the food in the US is laced with hormones and growth additives which leech into the human end used making the fat fatter!! It is the poor food supply that is in part to blame. Take a look at the models and the type of clothes that were worn and also the fact that “foundation garments (girdles etc) have fallen out of fashion. All contribute to the differences seen today where 66% of the US is either overweight or obese!

I’m a 00 and I find the campaign really offensive. I can understand getting rid of those with an unhealthy BMI but all size 0’s? It is just as discriminatory as singling out larger women.

It said all size zeroes WITH an unhealthy BMI. So just the size zeroes that actually have an unhealthy body weight. not ALL size 0s

katrina

“ban all size zero models and models with an unhealthy BMI (below 18.5) from the fashion catwalks.”

So that includes both size zeros and those with unhealthy BMI, which I find just discriminative to those with smaller frames who are size 0 and healthy.

find her to be quite unattractive….dont like her face at all, body is ok, skin is great, dont find her attitude sexy. overall, NOT a model imo.

Sharen
Guest

AGREED. Her attitude is totally unattractive, she just sounds bitter because they told her to loose weight. And (judging by these pics) she is not a good model, her face expressions are pretty cheap looking.

sddd
Guest
sddd

She said ONLY unhealthy 0s. (AKA BMIs that are unhealthy). I think it’s a great campaign. There are poor girls that are already great looking and skinny naturally at a 0 or 2… at a BMI of like 19… and then the industry pushes those 0s and 2s to lose even more weight… they push them to a BMI that prevents healthy bodily functions like normal periods and skin renewal.

Casey
Guest
Casey

BMI is not the absolute marker of one’s health. You can be slightly under or over and still be healthy.

Health checks ups can determine health. Give models a health check up, and those that don’t pass or show signs of anorexia can’t model until they get healthier. None of this “let’s ban everyone” nonsense.

lol! As if they wouldn’t just find some doctors willing to take the money in exchange for a clean bill of health… Never gonna happen.

Casey
Guest
Casey

justme, true. That would happen to some extent, just like we still catch atheletes abusing s—ids.

But you can’t say that giving athelets s—id screens didn’t at least decrease the amount of s—id abuse considerably. So you can’t say that giving models health check ups won’t at least decrease the amount of girls starving themselves to model.

It’s not a perfect solution, but if you have something better I think we’re all ears!

Amyy

Her attitude?

What attitude, the fact that she’s trying to put curvier women out their into the media.. more so then they are now?.. I think that’s pretty positive actually.. I think it’s disgraceful that they would ask anyone to lose weight.. let alone 2 stone when she already has a beautiful body!..

I find half of these comments disgraceful.. it’s actually upsetting to see how women can put other women down so easily!.. let her get on with her career!.. she’s gorg!! 🙂

I’m sooo glad you found out about this girl and put her on your site!!! This girl is a female icon many girls should look up to because she truely loves her body and feels comfortable in her skin.

Casey

” because she truely loves her body and feels comfortable in her skin. ”

Is that why she needs to attack body types different than hers? Because she’s so comfortable with herself?

I’ve seen plus-sized models who are not anti-o, but pro-variety. THAT is being comfortable in one’s skin, and being worthy of being a role model.

She’s a pear shape right? Her arms are thin and tummy is relatively flat, so it doesn’t seem to me that she would be overweight (she’s also tall). I think she looks good.

kate
Guest

She’s a bit flabby and untoned, but I wouldn’t call her fat per-se, probably around 30% body fat which is upper end of healthy range for females.

Once over 35% body fat is when you need to be concerned. She’s not quite there yet.

suzushii
Guest
suzushii

Oh please, you can detect body fat through a picture?

And 30%, that’s waay too much, I can see upper abs definition on this girl.

Just because someone is bigger does not mean they have high body fat. You can have a superthin individual with very high body fat (who just looks lanky and bony), and you can have big individuals who hide a considerable amount of muscle mass under some padding.

The only thing that can accurately detect body fat is a bf measuring machine.

kate
Guest
kate

And it was absolutley nothing to do with her size, but more the level of softness to her body (which includes more than just uppre abs).

I bet lots of people would assume VS models are about 10% just because they are skinny when in reality they are closer to 20% body fat.

l
Guest
um…I’d think she’s at 30%-34% body fat…which IS unhealthy…she looks like a before picture of me when I was a US size 10 and 33% body fat, even though my BMI was a 25…as for upper ab definition, I had better upper ab definition at 29% body fat and had less fat around my midsection, I also had meatier arms, hips and calves…she’s apple shaped and lacks muscle…look how thin and lanky her arms are relative to her mid-section…other than bone structure, it is MUSCLE MASS that contribute to an hourglass shape, regardless of what dress size she wears…look at… Read more »

are you gay? are you a man? how do you know what is sexy? and woman are designed to carry around 22% body fat minimum, much more than a man, so I’m guessing, nature has no issue with fat. being grossly overweight, maybe, but there are plenty of chubby chasers out there that might disagree!!
i find your attitude really unpleasant.
and i would genuinely rather look at a grossly overweight person than an anorexic. i have a friend sufering from this and it breaks my heart every time I see her. It IS PAINFUL TO LOOK AT.

bigvinamac

i find comments like this funny because someone who doesn’t like this body type or have a different opinion is gay. and not all women will carry minimum fat in her body and looking at someone who’s overweight is not attractive or healthy, just as the ones who are underweight.

‘I don’t think this campaign of fat models leads to anything good’ what a ridiculous comment no one said anything about actively seeking out fat models! why can’t people see that a variety of body shapes and sizes within the two ends of healthy, (large and small) is what we need, healthy real women. And if you think she is fat I feel sorry for you actually

Amanda
Guest
I think you’re the one who should “open your eyes”. First of all, too little fat on a woman is just as unhealthy as too much fat – it leads to fertility problems. Many professional athletes and dancers suffer from that. Second, recent studies show that being slightly overweight leads to longer life: http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2009/06/090623133523.htm . And last but not least, judging a person’s character based on their appearance is bigoted, ignorant, and just plain wrong. I’m a size 12 (not quite as big as her, but hardly skinny), yet I eat a healthy diet of organic veggies and fruits, grass-fed… Read more »

Think it needs to be pointed out that in the UK ‘size 0’ is really a buzzword to describe super skinny models, usually with BMI’s less than 18.

So people shouldn’t be offended if they are naturally a size 0. But when the norm is 5ft10 models who weigh no more than 120lb then there is a problem.

Rio
Member

Wrong! Not everybody is made from the same template! weight per se is not the only indicator. 5’10” and 120 could be genetics take tribes that have not interbreed with others and you can see different types clearly. BMI is very off the mark and is used because it is easy;not because it is point on accurate!

“ban all size zero models and models with an unhealthy BMI (below 18.5) from the fashion catwalks.” Huh. Then it should work both ways. Ban all models above 24.9. I think that might include you, Katie Green, since you look borderline overweight! I know the fashion industry has big issues, but I don’t think we should focus on BMI. BMI tells us nothing about one’s health. One can be slightly under or above a certain BMI and still be healthy. And to prohibit people from modeling based on size alone is straight up discrimination.

She said that her doctor told her that losing 28 lbs would put her in the underweight category, which means that she is in her 150’s lbs, which is nowhere near “borderline overweight” for 5’10”.

1) I’m angered by her comment.
2) In my opinion, she does look close to being overweight. Perhaps not borderline (aka 24.9), but I would put her at 24.5. This is my opinion, based on visual observation, and no actual scientific check. But it is my opinion and I am entitled to it.

I would also put her weight at about 23.5 – 24.5 – my sister is about the same size and height. But she’s definitely not a size 12. I’d say she’s a UK 14.

Casey, I agree with you in every single word, I’m impressed!

Looking at her, I see an okay body, though somewhat broad, but still a well-balanced one. That’s all, though, which makes her campaign sound just a little hypocritical to me, for the reasons you have already stated, thank you!

I totally agree Casey.

But also, BMI does not account for muscle mass and I feel the reason this girl looks somewhat “borderline overweight” is because she is not active and toned, which is unhealthy! Thus I do not believe this girl represents something to look up to. That is my opinion in respects to the pictures I have seen of her.

Casey
Guest

See katrina, I don’t think her body is bad or not something to look up to. I think for some people it is, and you have to remember, for some people, her body is an improvement or a healthier goal. If someone is 200 pounds, they’re most likely not going to relate to Gisele or Doutzen, but Katie’s body might inspire them.

However, because her body is not pefect, toned, and is definetly close to being considered “bad” by the same standard that she uses to describe size 0 models as bad (BMI), I don’t think she should be talking.

Zoe
Guest
I also agree with Casey, and with you on the fact that I think she is a little over size 12. I am the same height and like her a size 12 and I think I look a lot thinner! However I am in no means saying that I am as gorgeous as she is, or trying to put her down (I think all us girls should stick together)- it’s just a general observation I made. I could be wrong though as I am in no way certain of her dress size, and I may simply think she is bigger… Read more »

Casey, I usually like your comments and I do agree with you even here, but calling this girl borderline overweight is a little ridiculous and you aren’t better than her if you do the exact same thing: she slams one category, but you slam her figure. Just look at her!

Size zero models get a bad rap because for the most part even though I’m no Dr.Oz because they are unhealthy and malnourished. Their is absolutely no way in hell that you can be 5’10 and above and have to weigh 110-120 pounds which is the high fashion model requirement. On the flipside am I saying that all size… Read more »

The other day I said that people should tone down their negative comments because the post was about a magazine that was trying to portray a variety, which is what people claim to want. Katie Green’s comments are very anti-variety, which is why I have such a problem with her and her comment. Perhaps I went overboard by calling her flabby (although I don’t think I’m wrong in saying it, she IS flabby, but I could have said it in a nicer way. Like I said, her comments angered me).

I did not say she or people with her type should not model. I did not say she was unhealthy. I am not saying even if she was overweight that she would unnecessarily be healthy. All I said was by HER logic, which is that you have to be a certain BMI or size to model, she may not be fit to model either. What… Read more »

Umm, I’m in the same modeling agency as Katie and she is so not overweight. In fact, her exact stats are 5’10”, 28 inch waist and 158 pounds!!?? Her BMI would be what, 22.7? It’s absurd that some look at her and see “fat” or “overweight”.

kat
Guest

i’m 5’9, used to have bigger measurements (39-31-42) but was way smaller. now at 37-29-38 i’m half her size. no, no way, are those her real measurements. especially not a 28″ waist, that’s just laughable.

i weigh like 165 as well. she is so much bigger than me. im a 10/12 UK by the way, now. so yes i would say she is fat/overweight, shes not even toned, just has a tan

kate
Guest
kate

According to the link I posted earlier, it lists her measurements as 37-29-41.5….bust and hips sound about right but would most definitely question the waist size.

P.S. If you are only a UK size 10/12 at 165lb, then you must be mostly muscle and low body fat.

Dela

I’m 165 pounds as well at 5’7” (I know, overweight, but no one believes me) and I am a size 12 UK. I am not particularly toned, but not untoned either. It’s all possible. Also, the size 12 clothes don’t explode on me, I hate the super tight, stuffed look.

I think she’s ridiculous. If a size-zero model would start a ‘ban plus-sized models’ campaign, it would cause so, so much controversy. I don’t see how this is any different.
In the pictures that Sam linked above, she looks pretty good and healthy. But she seems to have gained some weight since then, especially in her midsection and hips, and I personally don’t think her present figure is nice or enviable. I don’t think she’s techincally overweight, but she could definitely stand to lose a few pounds and especially, tone up a bit.

It makes me happy to see someone on here that looks like me. She distributes fat the same way I do- love handles, but bigger hips. What body shape is she? I’ve found it confusing to categorize myself because of the love handles. I don’t think she’s borderline overweight at all. She does look bigger than most models, obviously, but compared to most people I think she’s in a healthy weight range and is probably about average. It also could be that she has a bigger body frame, like me. My measurements are almost the same as hers and I’m… Read more »

First of all, in my opinion a good model needs to have striking facial features (not necessarily beautiful…hope you get my point), while she is just average. So, in my eyes, she doesn’t qualify as a “model”, sorry.

I don’t like her attitude… nor her belly ring. And I think she is just looking for attention.

I feel like this girl isn’t comfortable in her own skin otherwise she wouldn’t be taking such an active interest in getting rid of thinner models. I hate how she and other people always say there’s something wrong with size 0. How about theres something wrong with a size 12 then? It is just as discriminatory. Plus I do not find her attractive at all. Her body looks like she never works out and the result is what some people call “curves”. To me if you are healthy, and toned, this is not what you look like. Since when did… Read more »

you are right about everything you said,there are a lot of overweight people but there are a lot of eating disorders too and i think there should be campaigns like this…yes there isnt anything wrong with size zero,any size should be considered not as good as another i am 5’8 and i am size zero but i dont think its normal to be 6’8 like most of the models and be the same size…

AGREE 100% with you Katrina. She looks like a couch potato with no muscle tone under the fat. I’ve seen girls who wear the same dress size that she claims to be but they actually look fitter and healthier and ‘curvier’ (without the too obvious apple shape she has going on), despite being a few inches shorter than her. These are real women who take time to work out atleast twice a week, and maintain a healthy lifestyle and good eating habits to their best ability…without striving to be too thin or too ripped and without trying to emulate any… Read more »

I am in agreement! The origin of PC was some fat girls in Michigan who were overlooked. Sometime it is genetics and even that can be looked at now. I see so many ‘pumpkins” rolling down the street that I understand the health crises. 66% of Americans are overweight or obese according to the BMI! The British are using waist-hip ratio which has proven better at determining health. Not to mention looks. The Waif look decried by the fat acceptance group is so wrong. Sorry about your sister perhaps she will see the light.

I’m not saying its okay to not be healthy and tell everyone that being plus size is okay all im saying is let people be whatever size they want to be or choose to be because its not our business. im over the arguments of ban size 0 models and plus size models are unhealthy, whatever

I get what you are saying, how its no ones business and I agree, I guess I just felt I had to express my opinions because being overweight and obese and trying to glorify anything of the sort is just plain bad for our society, in the same way that glorifying extremely unhealthy starving models is bad. I feel truly concerned for those that strive for either, or are presently in one of those states and see it as okay.

Agreed!
Girls saying she’s flabby and untoned are totally wrong. I can clearly see her muscle tone, even though she’s got some fat. She’s nowhere near being overweight. Yeah, she has some meat on her thighs and around midsection, but looks womanly!
Although I prefer a bit slimmer bodies, I honestly think she looks great.

ok…a few things… 1) SHE IS NOT FAT. SHE IS NOT OVERWEIGHT. EVEN IF HER BMI IS ON THE HIGH SIDE, BMI IS NOT EVERYTHING. 2) I think she looks good, but she is not an ideal hourglass. I think she is marketing herself as the perfect hourglass, and she’s not. I think her weight is healthy and her shape looks pretty good, but she is NOT a real hourglass. She is curvy in sort of an odd way. On a side note, I don’t really like her face, or that she is wearing lots of makeup at the beach…but… Read more »

I’m with you on everything except part of your point 3: You state that women can still have great cholesterol, no diabetes…etc even at a higher weight, therefore their health is not clear based only on BMI or their weight. Okay, got it. Absolutely agree. Then you state that when a woman gets thin, their unhealthiness is clear because they will become infertile and their hearts might stop. That’s where you seem to contradict yourself, because you’re saying we can’t judge heavier people’s health by their size but we can judge skinnier people’s health by their size.

Well she is probably not adding anything to her underbust measurement, hence the 32 band. It might be a bit snug but that’s the way bras are supposed to fit.

But most thin models should really be in a 26 or 28 band. I’m technically a 28D but usually have to settle for a 32B as that’s the smallest I can find in most places.

No, I’m a 32D and I’m a size 8. I’m not skinny but I do have a small rib cage. It’s almost impossible to find 32D though and I sometimes wear 34C but they are always uncomfortable because the band is too loose and is always sliding around.

and i promise this will be my last comment – but the fact her calendar contains topless photos makes her a slightly less credible role model…which is clearly what she is attempting to be with this campaign…unless she is *gasp* bitter at her early rejection?

nothing wrong with being sexy….but posing topless isn’t something that kids should aspire to.

There is nothing I find appealing about this woman- facially, bodywise or personalitywise. I’m 100% with Casey on this one. I normally love curvy measurements, but to me hers isn’t a nice example. Just because she has large hips doesn’t make ‘hourglassy’ IMO- her waist is still large.
Glamour ‘models’ are a joke- they’re desperate and deluded, and no decent guy I know finds their look attractive.

I think you’re missing the whole point of the size zero movement. At least the ideal behind it. It is not to ban or discriminate against thin women, simply to ban the unhealthy ones, and using their inability to model as motivation to get healthy.
