If you grew up as a plus-size person you were constantly told that your life goal should be to lose weight. Losing weight was our journey, and being skinny was the prize we were told to aim for.
A very popular hashtag on social media is #TransformationTuesday, and you can see thousands of pictures of men and women showing off their new bodies. Most pictures include a before of them at their heaviest sizes, and an after of their current weight-loss bodies.
Body-positive activist Jewelz Mazzei recently posted a picture of her #TransformationTuesday to remind people that weight loss is not the solution to your problems.
