Lena Dunham’s Body: “Chronic illness sufferer. Body-shaming vigilante. Sexual assault survivor. Raging hottie”

lena-dunham-before-after - Lena Dunham's Body: "Chronic illness sufferer. Body-shaming vigilante. Sexual assault survivor. Raging hottie"

On people noticing her weight loss and on Refinery29 headline’s “People Need to Stop Talking About Lena Dunham’s Weight:

Thank you for this @Refinery29. I feel I’ve made it pretty clear over the years that I don’t give even the tiniest of sh-ts what anyone else feels about my body. I’ve gone on red carpets in couture as a size 14. I’ve done sex scenes days after surgery, mottled with scars. I’ve accepted that my body is an ever changing organism, not a fixed entity- what goes up must come down and vice versa.

I smile just as wide no matter my current size because I’m proud of what this body has seen and done and represented. Chronic illness sufferer. Body-shaming vigilante. Sexual assault survivor. Raging hottie. Just like all of YOU. Right now I’m struggling to control my endometriosis through a healthy diet and exercise. So my weight loss isn’t a triumph and it also isn’t some sign I’ve finally given in to the voices of trolls. Because my body belongs to ME–at every phase, in every iteration, and whatever I’m doing with it, I’m not handing in my feminist card to anyone.

So thank you to my girl @ashleygraham for writing so gorgeously about this on @lennyletter (link in bio). Thank you to @tracyandersonmethod for teaching me that exercise has the power to counteract my pain and anxiety, and to @jennikonner for being my partner in F–K IT. I refuse to celebrate these bullsh-t before-and-after pictures. Don’t we have infinitely more pressing news to attend to? So much love to all

my web friends who demand that life be more than a daily weigh in, who know their merit has nothing to do with their size, who fight to be seen and heard and accepted. I love you- Lena

Khloe Kardashian Talks about Her Scarring Experiences

3E7E88F200000578-4335492-image-a-4_1490110671857 - Khloe Kardashian Talks about Her Scarring Experiences

On her traumatizing shopping experiences:

‘When I was younger, I remember going into an expensive clothing store, and I asked for a size 12 and they said, “Oh, we don’t have something that big.” I’m like, first of all, f*** you. But like, it’s not what you say, it’s how you say it.’

On how she was scared for being a size 31 in jeans:

‘When I used to shop at high-end boutiques for jeans with my sisters, they would ask for waist size 28 or 26. I would ask for a 31 and the sales assistants would look at me, make this hissing sound and reply, “We don’t carry that size here.” It made me feel so embarrassed and ashamed that for a long time in my life I didn’t wear denim… It does scar. I’ve held on to those words for so long.’

… says Khloe.

Gabourey Sidibe: “I keep shrinking! I hope to God I don’t get skinny”

Untitled-1-1 - Gabourey Sidibe: "I keep shrinking! I hope to God I don't get skinny"

On opting for a weight loss surgery last May:

My surgeon said they cut my stomach in half. This would limit my hunger and capacity to eat. My brain chemistry would change and I’d want to eat healthier. I’ll take it!

On loving her new figure:

I was in a war with my body.  If I’d started treating it better sooner, I wouldn’t have spent some many years hating myself. But I love my body now. There’s nothing ugly about me.

On not wanting to be skinny:

I keep shrinking! I hope to God I don’t get skinny. If I could lose enough weight just to be a little chubby I would be over the moon! My beauty doesn’t come from a mirror, never has never will.

On being ready to date:

I am ready to receive a gentleman caller.

… says 33 year-old Gabourey.

I used to hate mirror selfies. Now I do them everyday. I'm just too black and fine! I can't help it! ✊🏿👸🏿✊🏿

Chrissy Metz Talks about Her Weight Journey: “I lost 100 lbs. in less than five months”

chrissy-metz-weight - Chrissy Metz Talks about Her Weight Journey: "I lost 100 lbs. in less than five months"

The full story from People:

“I’d be getting maybe two auditions a year, and I’d always see the same small group of girls,” says Metz, who was a size 12 when she was first scouted but dropped 50 lbs. at the recommendation of her then-manager before moving to L.A.

With work slow, she took a job as a junior commercial casting agent but says having to backburner her own dreams “was like watching your boyfriend take another woman out every day.”

Depressed and “eating my feelings,” Metz gained more than 100 lbs. before a panic attack on her 30th birthday sent her to the hospital and snapped her back into reality.

She set about overhauling herself physically and emotionally, including following doctor’s orders to lose weight. “I was so gung ho, I lost 100 lbs. in less than five months,” she says. “All I did was eat a 2,000-calorie diet and walk 20 minutes a day.”

As the numbers on the scale fell, Metz regained confidence. Then she landed the recurring part on American Horror Story: Freak Show that would kick-start her career.

Playing a “fat lady” meant stepping into a fat suit. “It was sobering,” she says. “I thought, ‘What if I become that heavy and can’t walk around or get stuck in the doorframe? I was like, ‘I don’t want this for me.’ ”

The role also lead her to This Is Us. Baring her body and stepping on a scale within the first few minutes of the show’s pilot this past September, Metz — through her character — Kate instantly instantly became a fan-favorite.

“You don’t realize that somebody who’s average or even very fit could relate to someone who’s overweight,” she says of the feedback she’s gotten, “but it’s not about our size — it’s how we look at ourselves and how we feel about ourselves.”

As for what’s next, while Metz says she’s taking steps to lose weight, she does make it clear that the stops along her weight loss journey are “not for anybody but myself. … I want to have a fit, healthy body and not have to be put in a box. I don’t want to be limited by anything.”

Gigi Hadid: “The world puts so much pressure on fashion, then judges models for succumbing to that pressure”

gigi-hadid-weight-loss - Gigi Hadid: "The world puts so much pressure on fashion, then judges models for succumbing to that pressure"

Back in 2015, Gigi Hadid walked the Tommy Hilfiger in a bikini and she immediately received a lot of criticism for not looking skinny enough. Gigi then wrote a lengthy post in which she shared that she was comfortable with her figure and that she would never change it – her words in 2015 (read it all here):

Yes, I have b~~~~. I have abs, I have a butt, I have thighs, but I’m not asking for special treatment. I’m fitting into sample sizes. Your mean comments don’t make me want to change my body, they don’t make me want to say no to the designers that ask me to be in their shows, and they definitely don’t change the designers opinions of me.

This week, Gigi, who previously said that she lost weight due to a thyroid medical condition, recalled the feedback she got in 2015 for her message, saying:

‘The response was crazy. From Victoria’s Secret Angels to my friends who are considered plus size, everyone texted me and said they appreciated me saying something. The world puts so much pressure on fashion, then judges models for succumbing to that pressure.’
