A young lady by the name Shelby Johnson, 23, went viral last week after she published a body-shaming comment from her boyfriend. According to Johnson her boyfriend confronted her for having a beer belly and stated that if it keeps growing, he would no longer find her attractive. Johnson shared screenshots of their conversation online and it went viral prompting her to end the relationship.
‘I want to update you guys that we are broken up. He was really unhappy and felt like shit, especially after knowing my tweet went viral. He has told me he’ll use this as a learning experience to be a better person. And here I am, single and free,’ she announced on Twitter. In an interview with Elite Daily, Shelby who explained she only just achieved a healthy weight after years of struggling with being underweight; “I was once 80 pounds, in the hospital having tons of tests run. Now I’m 120 pounds and immensely healthy. Whether you’re super skinny or overweight, your feelings about yourself are valid. Listen to your gut and don’t ever let someone tell you how you should or shouldn’t look.”
“I’m just really happy I can use my story to turn this into something positive and open the conversation of body positivity. So many women struggle with their weight and not feeling like they are enough. For me, this isn’t even about my ex anymore. It’s about how reaching your goals is possible,” she added.
