London Weight Management Ad

Small kerfuffle on Facebook amongst my friends but gaining notoriety elsewhere in the Singapore cyberspace. Hopefully it’ll spread.

Let’s face it, being fat is not healthy for most people and often losing a few pounds here and there would do wonders to our self-esteem. But surely this is not for everyone. I’ve seen ugly skinny people and evil skinny people and unhealthy skinny people and depressed skinny people. Just because I’m fat, it doesn’t mean life is as desperate and miserable. Irresponsible advertising!! Preying on the insecurities of women and perpetuating the myth that losing weight is the key to happiness! GGRRR!!!!
