- Facebook user Maru Guayco voiced out her sentiments about fat shaming

- However, Maru revealed that she is healthy given her food choices and regular exercise
In society’s standards today, being thin is almost equal to being attractive and healthy. While it’s a sad understanding of things, it is the awful truth that is happening now.
However, one netizen got tired of hearing these things especially since she’s in the opposite side of the matter given her plump figure.
KAMI stumbled upon Facebook user Maru Guayco who gave fat shamers a piece of her mind when she composed this lengthy post in an attempt to enlighten the minds of the masses.
She grew frustrated from hearing how she’d be ‘pretty’ and no longer be ‘unhealthy’ if only she tried to lose some weight.

In her defense, Maru explained that she is indeed healthy since she keeps track of the food she eats and does it in portions. She even became particular and claimed that she’s eating fruits, vegetables, and tries to avoid having oily food.
As for another factor in a healthy lifestyle, the netizen revealed she’s been visiting the gym a couple of times per week as she prioritizes her body and not to satisfy other people’s judgments of her.
Unfortunately, some people’s ridicule do get the best of her and she refers to it as her ‘bad days.’ Nonetheless, Maru keeps on striving to be herself and live healthily since she ‘owes’ it to her body to do so.
So the next time you think that fat is synonymous to ‘ugly, lazy, unattractive, or unhealthy,’ think twice!
