WOMAN TIRED OF HOLLYWOOD'S OBSESSION WITH PERFECTION

(FOX 11 - Los Angeles) A Los Angeles woman says she's tired of Hollywood's obsession with perfection.  So, she's doing something drastic right in the middle of Hollywood Boulevard to show other women that it's perfectly fine to be large and have good self esteem.

While you may or may not agree with Amani Terrell's method, no one can argue with her message of loving yourself at any size.  Amani weighs 260 pounds. She knows she has to lose weight. In the meantime, she refuses to be down on herself.  She says, "You can not seek validation from other people. This world is very cruel. You must seek validation within yourself and be kind to yourself."

Amani decided to strip down to her bikini in the very busy Hollywood Boulevard to show the world that women are beautiful at any size.   While most people had a positive reaction...some, not so much. One guy yelled that he lost his appetite. Another sarcastically called her "Precious".



i think she's awesome...i couldn't do that on a public street, especially in L.A. or Miami.  Pass me a sarong, please. ClapClap

first off I'm not gonna pretend to care about her health (i.e. concern trolling ) from an aesthetic perspective, her shape isn't appealing to me at all..she'd look better with less weight 

but that's not the point...I do agree with her message about loving yourself

...it's better than loathing yourself right? and hating the skin you're in cos at the end of the day, it's your body and your life

health is not just physical--mental and emotional health is important too

I haven't watched the video yet

my first thought.LOL

idk...i spent a lot of time in hollywood and no one was thinkin about being perfect when i was there. media made it sound like that but not in real life. and another thing thats so funny is her walkin out in a bikini..ive see so many things there...from white contacts to a man in fishnets a thong and heels...(during the day) to drag queens...that her bikini means nothing really. LOL if thats what she wants to do, then more power to her...just stop layin on the ground dude thats gross. Dead

I'm a plus size, and I'm going to say.....IMO....
 
This does not change anyone's perception of a plus size person. I WILL NOT WILLING MAKE MYSELF INTO A JOKE.....BY MY ACTIONS.  and I think she made a "JOKE" of the situation.
 
What changes people's perception of A PLUS SIZE....is being PUT together....dressing for MY SIZE, dressing in flattering styles, looking my best...being the BADDEST PLUS SIZE WOMAN, you have seen for a long time.
 
Also exercising, staying toned as possible, wearing the correct undergarments so you look TIGHT and TONED not rolly and jiggly.  Some people are just big boned, tall or larger size.  I come from a family where the smallest person is a size 12 and 5"9.  So I'm never going to be a size 6 just by my genes.
 
Walking around naked, showing ROLLS is making a JOKE of the situation.
