Having been obese for much of my life, I can attest to the discriminations and internalized hatred that comes with Obesity. I don't want to down-grade the pain larger women may be feeling; but on the flip side of this, I think it's also important for people who may be underweight (like myself now), to not wait for culture to stop praising the thin! The constant praising of my weight lose feeds into my ED and the fear of the past discrimination I faced when obese, makes it hard to risk gaining weight. We all need to not wait for a change in culture before becoming healthy!
