‘Plus-Size’ Miss Universe Responds To Body Shaming

via ARTISTA PH on Youtube

Jane Dipika Garrett, the first plus-size Miss Universe contestant, spoke about her struggles with weight gain caused by PCOS.

She aims to inspire others to love and accept themselves.

Garrett has faced both positive and negative reception, including cruel remarks about her weight. (Trending: Donald Trump Confronts Bud Light CEO.)

She has learned to embrace a strict lifestyle and maintain a low-stress level to manage PCOS.

Garrett encourages people to embrace their own beauty standards and to strive for a healthy lifestyle.

“I really did not expect to get that much applause on the stage or that much spotlight. And I wasn’t expecting anything. I was just there to represent my country and to represent women all over the world. And that was my goal,” she said.

“I came with a humble heart… but when I won on that stage, I got the loudest applause from the whole entire audience. And that felt so good because it was like a breakthrough moment for me and for society that they see something different, that they see real size beauty.”

“I see things like, ‘Oh, she’s a whale,’ or ‘That’s disgusting. I’m going to vomit.’ Or like, ‘She’s promoting obesity.’ ‘Why don’t you go to the gym?’ And things like that,” Garrett said.

“And it’s like they don’t even know my story. They don’t even know what I’m going through.”

“So it’s very easy for us to gain weight. Even if we just look at a piece of cake, we can gain weight,” she said. “[The haters are] just judging me from social media. And that’s their problem. I don’t let it bother me… Society can be very cruel. People can be very cruel sometimes.”

“Recently, I’ve gained a lot of weight because of my hormonal issues. And that’s also really taken a toll on my mental health and my self-esteem because I thought that I wasn’t good enough or that I wasn’t beautiful enough. But I really had to get the validation for myself and learn how to have a positive mindset and to love myself despite not feeling my best self,” she said.

“It’s about being confident in your own skin and accepting who you are, where you are at. So I had to really remove all of those messages that were coming from society as well as coming from my own mind. So I had to really brainwash myself again and accept who I am and love myself.”
