"This
is a page dedicated to showing both sides of modern day beautyhttp://cdncache1-a.akamaihd.net/items/it/img/arrow-10x10.png.In
current societal fashion, a recent trending surge of "pro-obesity"
and "fat acceptance" have paved the way for many people to renounce exercisehttp://cdncache1-a.akamaihd.net/items/it/img/arrow-10x10.png and personal healthcarehttp://cdncache1-a.akamaihd.net/items/it/img/arrow-10x10.png in general. This page aims to only show
that being skinny is okay as well! Skinny-shaming is not okay :)."
