It is very common in our imperfect society to be body shamed and ridiculed for being fat. It’s like being fat is a crime and people take it as their own responsibility to make sure everyone who is on the heavier side of the scale gets informed on a regular basis (sometimes even multiple times a day) about it. If you are fat, you are automatically deemed as being less attractive. Accept it, people come in all shapes and sizes. It might be true that being slim and fit increases one’s confidence by x times, but let’s be clear about one thing that being fat is not always a choice. In fact, constantly reminding a person of their inability to lose weight is demotivating. However, we have something that might motivate you. There are several celebrities who were once very fat but today, they are slim. Let’s have a look at some of our B-Town celebs who have transformed themselves from fat to fit. And if they can do this, you can do it too!
