Being bullied about my weight as a kid was excruciating, and really impacted my sense of self and self acceptance. Now I really know that that the only weight problem I have is the problem other people have with my weight. This campaign is so important...don't wait to love yourself until you reach the perfect weight. You are more than numbers on a scale.

The most recent episode of The Biggest Loser, which aired tonight, February 4th, most certainly took on the "body bullies". The show this season works to fight childhood obesity. Youth representative Lindsey, a 13 year old middle schooler, fight out against even more. In tonight's episode Lindsey proudly holds a school pep-rally to remind her peers that no one should be bullied for his/her physical appearance. What a great and inspiring remind that we can all do our part to stamp out bodysnarking.

I was never made fun of for my appearance by others, just myself. Being very critical of myself, i was also critical of others. Now I only think positive thoughts about myself and others. I try to positively remind others not to talk snarky about their bodies and I think it makes people think about something that is a knee jerk reaction for women. Spread the positivity--it really works! Alicia B.

Some people won't be happy until they've pushed you to the ground. What you have to do is have the courage to stand your ground and not give them the time of day. Hold on to your power and never give it away.
