Being thin does not mean being happy: an American woman changes the idea of "before and after"photos

Categories: Health and Medicine | Social Networks

Imagine a typical "before and after" photo: usually on the left is a photo of a girl in a bikini or a man in swimming trunks, and on the right is the same person, only thinner. People are proud of their transformations. Obviously, there is nothing wrong with this: working and achieving your goals is really something to be proud of. But American Allison Kimmy (Allison Kimmey) believes that a positive transformation does not always consist in weight loss. Being thin does not mean being happy.

Allison Kimmy is a popular blogger. Her Instagram account is dedicated to body positivity. Allison promotes the rejection of the pursuit of beauty standards and living in harmony with your body. She often posts photos "before and after", but they are different from the usual ones, because Kimmy is several sizes larger in the "after" photo.

Some time ago, Allison Kimmy became famous in social networks, posting a conversation with her daughter, who called her fat. Kimmy explained to her daughter that every person has fat, it protects muscles and bones, and the body receives energy from it. It's just that different people have different amounts of body fat.

She urged everyone to talk about this with their children, but subscribers reacted to the statement in different ways. Some supported Kimmy. Others wrote that excess weight is not the norm, it can signal problems in the body.

Allison herself is confident in the correctness of her actions. She posts photos in a swimsuit, completely unashamed of her figure, and feels absolutely happy in her weight.
