I saw the show and it was a tear-jerking pity party/celebration.
They spent a lot of time crying about how they felt about themselves...which at times was touching, but at other times seemed staged by Monique to
play up the sympathy.
I think that Monique is playing this fat thing the wrong way. Traditionally people are not supposed to be as big as some of us people are today.
Hormones and environment (including mental health) may play a role in some of the obesity...but lifestyle plays an even bigger role.
Many of those women were obese because of bad eating habits, lack of exercise and a metabolism that won't let it hide.
I don't think society should look down on people because of their weight...but what Monique is doing, I don't think, is helping that great a deal
either. I think it encourages big women to feel less of a necessity to be healthy by way of losing unhealthy weight.
Some obese women exercise and eat healthy, but STILL cannot lose a lot of weight and be thin. It happens...and I've seen it. But I think that
Monique is making it easy for the others that can choose healthier lifestyles to not do so.
The women on that show were beautiful. No doubt about it. Especially the girl that won. In fact...she wasn't all that fat, like the one chick on
the show was...a young girl too.
And another woman on the show was pretty tall and not necessarily fat at all. Her height allowed her to carry more weight, PLUS she looked good in
I don't know...cause I'm starting to ramble now...but I just think that the show was underwhelming and tried too hard to grab at the audiences
