Melinda Parrish, a plus size model who indeed has a unique way of promoting training and body fitness. Melinda’s campaign isn’t about losing weight, but it is about activities on embracing and loving one’s body.
As Melinda stated on her website below,
“This challenge IS NOT about weight loss or changing your body to meet a standard of perfection, it’s just about taking a few minutes a day to focus on taking care of yourself and loving your body through movement.”
“This can be taking a walk during the work day, a trip to the gym, or dancing on your bedroom in your underwear. Any form of movement that makes you feel empowered and works with your daily routine.”
For more, Melina has been sharing her journey throughout her idea with hashtags #HealthyAtAnySize and #GetMoving2015 on Instagram.
The reason behind her movements are mentioned below,
“The holidays have always magnified body issues for me.”
“Because there is so much to do this time of year to in order to perform your perfectionism for everyone else, in everything from gift giving to hosting to being a guest to baking to charitable activity, it’s always been a time of year where I lose my commitment to self-care and showing my body love.”
“And with plenty of indulgent food around to reach for during stressful moments, my body issues have historically been at an all-time high during the holiday season.”
Indeed, the plus size model believes being overweight does not mean you are unhealthy.
“I’m choosing to love this size body and celebrate what it’s capable of, rather than trying to whittle myself down to meet traditional standards of ‘fit’, ‘healthy’, and ‘sexy’,” she concluded.
