  5. Best way to go, Peoples opinion about you is not your gaddamnn business.
    But,Mona has always been a gorgeous lady so i'm guessing the so called body shamers are the jealous and envious people, I mean just take a look at the clean ravishingly beautiful woman😍😍🀷‍♀️.

    2. She is not photogenic at all. Wait until you see her physically, then you'll know true beauty. She is clean, white and BEAUTIFUL. I love her everything about Monalisa, especially her maturity.

      @Anon,Her own shade of cleanliness and freshness including beauty does not even need a physical encounter to notice, Like it's so glaringly obvious.

    2. @Bini you can say that again. In my own case my only offense is being slim. I practically hated myself one period coz the shaming was just too much. What did i do? After i decided not to let it slide again, one of my shamers fell into my trap and i warned the living daylight out of her that day. We literally argued over it and since then i had my peace, at least from her, until i completely deal with d rest. Weytin sef

  7. I have migraine headache and have been put on a drug dat has made me gain abt 12kg. I eat as healthy as i can,i excercise etc. Wld have blown up more if not for my discipline.
    I actually tried stopping d drug migraine came in full force dat i will cry sometimes. I have tried other drugs but some are not good for women in child bearing age. Some dont even work.
    I went from size 1o to 14. Because people are used to seeing me slim they keep body shaming me that i have blown up. How many ppl will i explain i have a condition. Some especially all these family aunties can be so cruel.

    2. Please don't listen to them. Size 14 is a very beautiful size. I am sure you look even more beautiful and curvier now. You don't know what I went through just to get to that exact size considering I have a high metabolism. Don't listen to them. Rock your new weight.😘

    4. Darling sis, you owe no one an explanation. Keep looking after you, let them keep running their mouth. If you keep listen and letting it get to you, depression will come in and that’s worse. Please take good care of you that’s all that matters. Be safe πŸ€—πŸ˜˜

    7. 12:32 please, have you found out what causes you migraines?

      Mine was from chronic sinusitis. One consultant even wanted me to undergo surgery to drain the nasal fluid but God ordered my steps to meet another doctor who advised me not to.

      I've had acute migraines for years and even passed out from the pain. It was like lightning struck and I blacked out.

      With faith-based prayers, drinking enough water daily, medication (antibiotics,nasal drops), I got healed.

      Some women have migraines on or before their monthly flow.
      To counter this,
      drink lots of water πŸ₯›πŸ₯›πŸ₯›

      exercise🚢‍♀️πŸƒ‍♀️⛹️‍♀️πŸ‹️‍♀️🚴‍♀️🀽‍♀️🀸‍♀️🏊‍♀️

    8. Anon look here those people just want to make you feel low and sad abeggi. Is it not size 14?. Or I don't know what size 14 is again? I just googled size 14 models and they aren't even fat just thick with a little flesh. So what is the matter now that you are listening to those that want to make you unhappy.

      All the size 14 are fine with nice shape. Abi it is not size 14 you mean because I don't understand again sef

      I hate being slim I just hate it. I am here trying to gian weight to reach that size 14 and you anon are listening to jealous people.

      Don't vex me o

    9. Everyone is shouting size 14 isn't fat. Please consider the person's height and BMI. This is not even about body shaming but for your own health - type 2 diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, metabolic syndrome, etc.

    10. Im d anon. Yes my size 14 is UK size 14. My boyfriend doesnt even mind cos he met me dat size. But my whole life i have been really slim so carrying the extra weight is annoying.
      People dat dont know me before always say where is the fat, ur beautiful. But i feel it cos it isnt naturally me.
      Well i have to learn to live with it. Anon19.47 mind you im not obese and i excercise 5times a week and eat well,i have never had BP problem as i go to d hospital and do medicals yearly as part of my job its required.

    11. 19:47 and you think there are no thin or slim people who have all the illnesses you are ranting about? Lot of slim people have them but ignorance makes them feel they are an exception.

      It will shock you to know lots of fat people are healthier than the thin ones you see all around. Size 14 isn't obese at all. All these people up here are obviously UK size 14 which I am too and I look good.


      20:21 You will feel good with time. I am maintaining my weight and don't wish to reduce at all. See crazy curves with flat tummy and nicely proportioned behind.πŸ˜‹

  8. I am 6ft tall. Growing up,I almost developed a low self esteem because of my height. I couldn't hide ,I couldn't do what my friends did,on the assembly ground I was the tallest,people told me I was too tall for a girl,some called me giant. All these made me feel bad until I got into the university,my friend noticed and she was like I should stop being Shy that girls were dying to have my height. That built up my confidence,I changed my walking step,started packaging myself well,I was no longer shy to walk in crowdy places. Guess what ? I became a celeb in school,people would stop me to admire my height even my lecturers. Let me not talk about how much favor this same height has brought me. The most important thing is to love yourself and be confident in whatever form you find yourself.you are more than enough πŸ’œ

    1. I have a friend who is 6ft3. She channelled that into playing basketball. Though she is retired now due to marriage, kids and all, besides she is no longer a spring chicken but back then, she was one of the most sought after both home and abroad and she played well. She is so made that if not for that same height I doubt she would have had the necessary connections and financial standing she enjoys till now. God doesn't make mistake. Everyone looks a particular way for a reason.

    2. Lol... This here is exactly my story. I have been tall since I can remember. As a child in primary school I had low self esteem. I was always made to seat at the back,last roll to be precise because I'm taller than my mates and elders. I was slim too,which didn't help my course at all. I was called things like dogo, palm tree, alika, alinga oporoko, dry bone, skeleton etc.
      But I thank God for growth. As I got into my teen age, I started adding flesh in the right places. I had very flat tummy, a very curvy body for my height (some people even told me to go into modelling) and I have a beautiful face and skin. I have also got good brain too.
      Now, I have grown to be very confident.

    8. Lee Lee, you see that your last sentence sums it up nicely! πŸ‘Œ
      ...."You are more than enough" that's the difference between your comment and Monalisa's, "After all we are all never enough".

      That's the difference between being super-confident and what triggers low-self-esteem.

      You see, YOU ARE MORE THAN ENOUGH!

      It's not about being beautiful or handsome. It's about your MENTAL ATTITUDE. This determines your AURA and your AURA determines WHAT YOU ATTRACT.
      You see very fine ladies and men yet they have low self-esteem because someone/something made them believe they are not enough.

      I admire and compliment people a lot as well as positively communicate how they can improve.
      It has never crossed my mind that anyone has something I don't have because I don't compare myself (or others) with anyone.
      5ft 6, size 10. I've been told I've got a nice physique, glowing skin and all but not even in the years I had facial acne did I think I was less beautiful. In fact, I carried it like a 'beauty-blemish'. πŸ˜„
      None of siblings had acne but it didn't bother me.

      Love and accept yourself and others will. πŸ’ž

      Sabella, yes! "God doesn't make mistake" .
      Variety is the spice of life else God won't have made the rainbow. πŸŒˆπŸ’ƒπŸ˜€

  19. Lol
    I remember when everyone mocked me cos I was skinny ,
    Same people that mocked me are now on a diet , i gained weight cos of steroid as I wrote earlier , not like I'm big and I'm not even overweight I'm a size 10 now yet some people are calling me fat .
    I love my body , I'm on person that believes that how I feel about myself is what matters 😌 I do not need any form of validation.
    My flat tummy is coming back and I'm glad , some people are on the big side not as a fault of theirs but mostly health challenges, however I believe in healthy living , this surpasses everything else.

  22. Some criticism can come from a place of love.
    I used to be size 8 before I got married. After two kids I ballooned to size 18, it took the 'body shamers' so called to make me sit up and to compound my situation, I already had an orthopedic case, so to avoid putting so much strain on my femur, I changed my diet and made sure I workout for 1 HR daily!
    It took about 4months but yours faithfully is now size 12!
    Guess what, those people are now congratulating me.

    If you know within your self that what people are saying about you is true and within you, you desire to change, please find a way to change and shame your shakers!

    I'm now healthier, happier and a yummy mummy!

    1. They didn't need to shame you to pass their message. Besides that diet you changed and exercise that worked for you may not work for another person. Some people need medical attention before one pound drops regardless of whatever they do. People's body differs.

      Delete
    2. There's something called constructive criticism, not every critic is wrong.but when you know that's how you are created or it's nothing you can change, nor does it affect your health or even concern them that becomes body shaming.

      Delete
    3. Oh well, good for you.

      We are all different. Words actually break some people. If it is from a place of love, there are ways of telling or hinting the person to lose weight.

      Delete
    4. @ anon 13:41, thanks. We needed more people like you to share their testimonies. You're happier now and in the end, the "shaming" ended in praise for you. In my case, my "body shammers" are now saying my current size 8 isn't good at all, that I should gain weight. When l was size 12, l didn't hear word. You can't please humans. Just be sure you're healthy and satisfied with your outcome.

      Delete
    5. @ anon 14:25, weight control is 80% diet (healthy diet and portion control) and 20% exercise. It works for every living human. However, discipline is key and many lack this, hence the popular myth that it doesn't work for everybody. Progress results may take different duration for differnt people but it surely works.

  23. That's life, I almost brought down the picture I posted on facebook yesterday when a long time crush responded with the 'Shock' emoji, I was so concerned, I ran back and almost pulled the picture down and then I remembered; Who is he exactly to define what I put online? I said to myself, "A bloody long forgotten dumb crush that has refused to grow up cannot dictate what I should look like, and immediately, my mind came to peace.

    Morals:1) Do you, the world will adjust.
    2) You are amazing just the way you are, so..... self love.

    So far, 185people has seen the picture and it has generated lots of love and likes. One man's poison, is another's meat.

  31. My mother in law bodyshamed me because of my bowlegs when I gave birth to my son. She will be stretching his legs when birthing him, saying she doesn't want him to have my type of legs.

    1. Girl, there is someone sitting in a wheelchair who would do anything to be able to walk. Do not ever let anyone steal your joy from you. If it wasn't bowlegs it would be big nose, flat butt, small breasts, or whatever the hell ppl would find fault of you with. Love yourself. I know in my culture some guys go for girls with bowlegs specially, according to them the sex is hotter, so you got your bowleg lovers out here.

      I have a big nose and I would never dream of cutting it to make other ppl feel comfortable. My nose has always done what it was created to do and never let me down. How could I dream of mutilating it to make ppl in the world who have their own flaws happy.
