Plus size writer Gabi Gregg is under scorching hot water after posting pictures of herself in what people are calling a "fatkini" gallery. Not only did Gabi post pictures of herself in a swimsuit she also invited other plus size women to post their own swimwear pictures. Within a few days the pictures were all over the internet with critics harshly slamming the writer for defending obesity.

Well I hear that Gabi!! I am in full support of women accepting their bodies. Folks please remember that your health is not determined by your size. You could be as skinny as an Olsen twin and have sky high cholesterol. I'm not advocating obesity either, what I am saying is right in line with Gabi. Ladies let's learn to love our bodies regardless of what our size is.

Gabi didn't get absolute support from all plus size readers with one woman stating " I am a person who is overweight, and has struggled with weight my whole life. I don't think we should glamorize obesity". Interesting!

I want to hear your thoughts on this issue! Are these women glamorizing obesity or accepting their bodies as is?
