The morning after seeing an old friend at a New Year’s Eve party, she forwarded me an email ad featuring a loose weight quick product along with a personal message from her saying, “Great seeing you last night, hope this product helps you in the New Year.”
How would you respond to such body-shaming? For the record, I’m personally OK with my weight and I’m not unhealthily obese, just pleasantly plump and I exercise several times a week.
Don’t respond. Whether fit-shaming or fat-shaming, it’s body-shaming.
With friends like her, you don’t need body-shaming enemies. Drop it. Drop her.
Bringing up her email in conversation would fall on deaf ears. You have significantly different values.
