Why is WEIGHT consider Ugly

Hello Sweetea,

Living in a superficially social with stupid-ficially attitude and mindset can be emotionally and financially draining.  After watching Jessica Simpson’s show “The Price of Beauty” I truly believe it’s a global issue that a lot of people find weight to be “ugly.” People will spend their last dollar on cosmetic surgeries to cut the ugliness out their life.  I ask myself is it because of what the media, magazines, videos, or advertisements put out there is considered “sexy or beautiful” make people consider weight is ugly?

Weight has been an issue for many years and a major social problem. This has been a hot topic of all conversation lately I think due to the weather change and everyone wants to walk the street bare. However, so feel one should be of a certain size to walk bare and others shouldn’t because it’s unattractive and offensive to their eyes. If a person is comfortable in their skin shouldn’t they be allow to walk freely without being judge because of their size?

Growing up today a person especially children have to be wise because it’s hard to tell the truth when it’s covered by different messages from the media and people’s viewpoint of what is attractive and what isn’t. The world can be cruel and the world can be kind, to people who so call do not fit the norm of what a person should look like. People who don’t fit what is consider the norm weight size are often victims of jokes, stereotyping, negative nicknames, physical violence and other forms of discrimination because of their physical appearance. This happens in educational institute as well as in professional settings, where a person with weight is often denied promotions or insurance coverage, and even friends because of their physical appearance. Is this fair or just plain old silly?


It’s sad that parents are not taking the time to teach their children to love themselves for the person they are and not the person society want them to be. I am noticing a huge trend in the school system with young ladies and men too trying all unhealthy means and behaviors to lose weight. This is why I support Dove’s Campaign for Real Beauty and use Dove’s video to aid me while working with my clients. Parents allow society’s standards for body shape and the importance of beauty to educate to their child what is ugly and what is beautiful by the promotion of various media outlets. The media links beauty and body shape to symbols of happiness, love and success for women and men. Media portrays these images as achievable and real by dieting and/or plastic surgery to fix the problem. The networks are even censoring plus-size ads especially Lane Bryant’s new lingerie line while Victoria’s Secret Angels are free to sashay around because they are skinny.  Also, people have to be mindful what they say and their behavior about weight because someone is always listening and watching you.


I think it’s time we support “Skinny doesn’t mean healthy and happy; Weight doesn’t mean unhealthy or ugly! Proper eating habits, an active lifestyle and loving who you are equals good health and mental peace of mind and happiness!!!!!  Love who you are in the body you are in, in return that will help you to be the person you want to be!!!

  1. It is sad that this world has come to defy thin as sexy. Women in general are sexy no matter what age race or weight. We have been given the inner peace to show the world what sexy really is. It is loving yourself. Be proud of who you are. Dont let others definition be what makes who you are. I have 2 little girls and I am teaching them to love themselves, be proud to hold their heads up high and say I am beautiful.

  2. Hello Nicole and welcome! Hopefully, you subscribe, joined me on facebook and come back often! I totally agree with you and that is the best way to raise your daughters because building their self-esteem is really going to help them in this cruel and judgmental world. Also, its going to help them while they are dating too.
