Tess Holliday Is Pregnant: “Plus size women face so much stigma”

January 31, 2016 in Pregnant Celebrities, Tess Holliday by Versus30 Comments »


On being pregnant with her second child:

Yes, it’s true! @nickhollidayco & I are having a baby! 👶🏻 We wanted to keep it a secret as long as possible, but we are finally able to share! Plus size women face so much stigma & doubt over what our bodies are capable of. It’s something I feel doesn’t get enough media attention, but I hope that the next few months of my pregnancy will help change the conversation. All bodies are amazing! Thank you for the continued support in this exciting time in our lives 🎉👶🏻🍼💘 p.s. I’m due in June 💕#effyourbeautystandards @peoplemag

Oprah: “Of all my accomplishments, not eating all the chips is major”

January 30, 2016 in Oprah by Versus12 Comments »


On gaining 17 pounds over the summer:

I was really at my wits end. I had tried everything. Every other time I’ve ever gone on a diet, I’ve gone on a diet and then gone off the diet, because I had gotten to the weight I’d wanted to be. The difference is, I’ve made the shift and this is the way I’m going to live for the rest of my life.

On being a food addict and the community at Weight Watchers:

We’re smart people who have done a lot of good things in our lives, and then there’s this one thing, this one flaw, that we have that everyone can see. If you’re an alcoholic, you can hide that, or if you’re a drug addict, you can hide that. If you’re a gambler, you can hide that. If you’re a shopping addict, you can hide that. If you work too much, you can hide that. But if you overeat, it’s hard to hide that. The fact that you have the courage to come together in a community to give voice to it, and speak to the universe, I think that’s brave and powerful and I think that’s why Weight Watchers works.

On moderation:

At the end of a 17 lb. gain, I just thought, ‘Wow, there has got to be a way that I can eat what I want and not feel obsessed with the idea of what I’m not getting.’ Because the moment you tell me that I’m not going to have carbs, that’s all I can think about, is when I’m going to get a potato. So, it’s taken that obsession out of it for me. I know I’m going to manage it.

On not eating all the chips:

I actually was traveling the other day and opened a 5 oz. bag of crinkle cut, black pepper potato chips and I counted out 10 chips. And I ate the 10 and I savored every one. And I put the bag away. Of all the accomplishments that [I] made in the world, all the red carpets, and the awards and those things that I’ve done. The fact that I could close the bag and not take another chip – it’s major for me.
