Plus-Size & Exercise: Ashley Graham Fights Back
There are so many negative connotations attached with being plus-size, especially that plus-size women don’t go to the gym. That couldn’t be further from the truth!
Ashley Graham is at the forefront of body positivity and in the latest issue of Self Magazine she shares her favourite body-weight exercises.
After being accused of losing weight and betraying fans we can see why Ashley has had enough.
“To some I’m too curvy. To others I’m too tall, too busty, too loud, and, now, too small — too much, but at the same time not enough. When I post a photo from a “good angle” I receive criticism for looking smaller and selling out. When I post photos showing my cellulite, stretch marks, and rolls, I’m accused of promoting obesity. The cycle of body-shaming needs to end. I’m over it.”
Exercising isn’t all about losing weight, it builds strength, it’s good for us, it makes us feel great and we like it!
