Tess Holliday has a message for anyone who thinks she’s lost weight: “I’m still fat as hell.”
On Wednesday, Holliday posted photos taken during her trip to the United Kingdom, in which she poses seductively on a bed in a lace-up bodysuit — and the caption has been garnering plenty of attention.
“I hate when people comment ‘you’ve lost weight, you look good!’ No b*tch, I’m still fat as hell, but I know my angles AND I still look good.”
Holliday has gained a loyal following thanks to her positive message of self-acceptance and body positivity. As creator of the #EffYourBeautyStandards, Holliday aims to show both women and men that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes.
The 32-year-old model released her book “The Not So Subtle Art of Being A Fat Girl: Loving The Skin You’re In” in 2017. The book shares Holliday’s personal journey to self-acceptance while offering inspirational tips to realize their own power and beauty.
Despite online negativity, Holliday continues to promote her positive message and touch the lives of thousands of men and women around the world.
“As someone who lived in a plus size body, I had a lot of hangups about my body,” Holliday said while promoting her book last year. “I had a lot of issues. I had a lot of struggles. But through doing #effyourbeautystandards I realized that it’s something everyone deals with. Even the people that are trolling you, that’s why they’re trolling you. I realize that it’s not just a plus-size problem: man, woman, it crosses all genders, all races.”
Less hate, more love. That’s a message we can all get behind.
