It happens to men and women—even celebrities such as Serena Williams, Selena Gomez, Kelly Clarkson and Amy Schumer. Fat-shaming—criticizing people’s physical appearance based on their weight—is both rude and hurtful.
Most people who listen to my show are not obese, but being shamed for how you look, what you believe and desires that don’t fit the narrative of the culture you live in can be equally damaging.
Nicole Black, who was fat-shamed for 30 years, reached a peak when she packed an extra 100 pounds on her 5-ft. 1-inch frame, feeling like a victim is strictly optional.
Nicole is an author, speaker and advocate for mindful living. She is the co-founder and former CEO of Renaud’s Patisserie & Bistro. When she isn’t working to promote her story of getting healthy from the inside out, she enjoys travel, yoga, Pilates.
In her new book, Fat Shame: Ditch the Shame, Get Confident, and Claim the Life You Deserve,Fat Shame: Ditch the Shame, Get Confident, and Claim the Life You Deserve
www.NicoleBlack.com Black shares her own journey of yo-yoing from fat to thin and back again even as she operated successful bakeries with her ex-husband.
To be sure, Fat Shame is not about dieting, nutrition, exercise or even bariatric surgery, which is how she eventually slimmed down to 118 pounds. Instead, it is a book about achieving self-love, something she struggled with even with her new size four body when she continued to feel unhappy and ashamed.
Black, who grew up in Hollywood as a film director’s daughter, recalls how a stranger once rolled down his car window to say, “Hey, fatty! Jenny Craig is right down the street!”
And at a party, when she pointed out her husband across the way she was told: “No man that good looking would ever be married to a thing that looks like you!”
