    I have to see this. I am so pissed off at the latest Jenny Craig commercial. The lady in it lost sixty pounds and says, “Thank you for letting me be pretty one more time” and as she is saying this I think what the fuck is wrong with this society that we think is pretty is thin!! Who the hell does Jenny Craig think they are to put the message out that thin is pretty? I know a lot of thin people that are ugly as hell inside and out. (Sorry for swearing PaPa Love you!)

      ~~~Tia,
      the film is about big women & thin women who cannot accept themselves.

      Fat or thin…we are in the same boat. We need to love ourselves for “Who We Are.”
      that is the entire theme of the fillm. It is not about FAT or THIN.

      it is about ACCEPTANCE, LOVE, & Fitting into one’s own Skin. xxxx Luv U.

    I was anorexic when I was young then I was still on the thin side after overcoming my anorexia. Now due to health issues I have gained weight, especially in my stomach area (I used to have a very small waist line). It is a very weird experience to gain weight and learn to just accept it. It so changes my self perception. I would love to see this movie to help me with my transition since my weight gain appears to be a permanent condition.

      Dear, Sophia,
      The movie was an eye-opener.
      No matter our size….It is so difficult for women to accept & love ourselves.
      Fat—Thin—whatever.
      It is a learning process…that seems to last a life-time.
      And I am still evolving..
      Watch the move and give me your perspective. xx

    My mom always says acceptance will come with age – I hope not too late though. 😉 We are all united by the disfigured “gene” and it is quite sad really. My husband thinks I am absolutely perfect the way I am and I cannot look at myself without complaining about something which really peeves him! So here’s to all of us girls working on accepting ourselves just the way we are!

      We are all evolving.
      Still.
      The question is: Will we ever think we are good enough? Thin Enough?
      So superficial. SO ridiulous.
      But true.
      Luv U, Elizabeth.

      Anriana,
      society teaches intolorance & superficiality.
      this is why women, especially, are in the state we are in with
      anorexia, bulimia, suicide, & weight issues.
      Watch the film and give me your perspective on it. xxxx

    Thats alright Tia, I still love you——————– Kim, fat or thin or whatever, somestimes it’s about
    health reasons. I think it’s about how you feel about yourself, not how other people think or feel
    about you. If they don’t like the way you look, fat or thin, than they are ones with the problem.
    I agree with Tia, I can’t stand to watch those commercials either.
    Love You
    Dad

    I had to watch it. I cried and laughed, I loved it! I wish I could make everyone who’s ever known me or will know me watch this movie because it really is about me. This is the first time I could completely and honestly relate to a character. Thanks
