JOIN THE MOVEMENT
In an effort to show that size is just a number, PEOPLE is launching the #ShareYourSizeCampaign. Ten social media influences – including Iskra Lawrence (left) showing off her size 12 body – have already taken the plunge. To get in on the fun, just write your size on a piece of paper and strike a pose! You may be featured in PEOPLE magazine or on PEOPLE.com. Submit your photos by emailing them to firstname.lastname@example.org, or by tagging #ShareYourSize on Twitter and Instagram till May 14, 2016. For all the official rules, see People.com/ShareYourSizeRules.
“I was extremely excited to be involved with this campaign because it’s so rare to see a wide variety of body shapes and sizes displayed and celebrated in the mainstream media,” says the creator of GirlsGoneStrong.com. “It’s not about one particular body shape being superior to another, but rather, it’s sending the message that there’s no wrong way to have a body.”
“I would love to be somebody who helps to shatter that stereotype of who’s a runner and who’s not, and who’s able to do this and do that,” says the runner and blogger at Fat Girl Running. “I’m opposed to this notion that exercising is only for skinny people.”
“I want women to know that you don’t need a ‘miracle pill’ or ‘quick fix’ to lose the baby weight,” the news anchor tells PEOPLE. “It can be done slowly, over time, in a healthy way that will set you up for good habits going forward.”
“I feel so confident because of my quality life,” the model tells PEOPLE. “I’m exactly where I’m meant to be.”
“Why does size matter? Big or small … I love my LOVE handles!” the singer and reality star posted on Facebook.
“People need to see someone in the spotlight who does not have the appearance of perfection,” says the winner of American Beauties Plus.
“I can’t explain how proud I am of myself. I have shed so many tears in this journey – tears of frustration, deprivation, disbelief and gratitude,” says the PEOPLE Half Their Size blogger.
“The best way to deal with negative comments is to not reply and move on, but know that you are doing the very best that you can and are happy doing it,” says the Diary of a Fit Mommy blogger.
