Welcome to 2021, where being extremely obese is considered “healthy” by the body positivity crowd. Cosmopolitan magazine released a new edition that featured 11 overweight women and the cover read, “This is healthy!”
“‘Healthy’ can be a loaded word. We asked these women to open up about their personal journeys to reclaim ‘healthy’ as their own,” Cosmopolitan said, and then shared the stories of “11 women who prove wellness isn’t ‘one size fits all.”

One cover featured influencer Callie Thorpe, who says that she adheres to the “body neutrality movement” — a movement that doesn’t focus on one’s own appearance.
“Plus-size people often feel like they can’t be part of the wellness space. We are trolled for being fat, then can feel excluded from exercise because our bodies don’t fit the narrative,” said Thorpe, who has amassed more than 250,000 followers on her Instagram account.
Cosmopolitan also featured yoga teacher Jessamyn Stanley, who says that yoga “has absolutely nothing to do with what you look like.”
“When I first started I was often the only fat person at classes, and frequently the only Black person, so it was very alienating,” Stanley said. “I do experience fatphobic comments....Just yesterday someone said, ‘Do you really like your body? If I had that body I wouldn’t like it.'”

Cosmopolitan editor Farrah Storr defended featuring plus size model Tess Holiday on the cover in 2018.
“What are you actually trying to achieve with this cover?” Piece Morgan asked Storr at the time. “I read the interview and never once in the entire thing, with all the pictures in the interview do you as the editor of Cosmo even infer that this may not be a good weight to be, that this actually might be morbid obesity. And in Britain right now, we had the worst incidence of obesity in Europe by miles. We are a fat and ever fattening country.”
