Another Weight Watchers victim…

WHY? Everytime an inbetweenie or curvy person is on TV, they get a contract with Weight Watchers. WHY??? This time it is Iris Kroes, the winner of the Voice of Holland in 2011. Since April she’s been doing this diet and has lost 11 kilos. A young girl who is a role model for many young girls. And yet again it’s confirmed: being a big girl is not allowed in the media.
The same happened with Jennifer Hudson, also got a huge contract with Weight Watchers. To show the world: you’re more beautiful by losing weight! Come on! It’s time sizes 40 (EU) and up should be on tv, in movies, in magazines! And don’t punish these women who have so much talent because of how they look!

Tonight another episode of The Voice starts,
and remember: it’s all about the voice… NOT the look!


  • What some people forget, rebekka, is that “thin” doesn’t necessarily equate to being healthy. It depends on the individual… everyone is different! There are some of us that will still be considered curvy or plus-sized, even at our ideal size/weight — and we are healthy too!

    At 173cm, I am a healthy size 44 (US 14/16). I eat healthy and exercise daily. I can out-run and out-dance a lot of gals half my size! 🙂

    I think the point that the blogger is trying to make is: did Iris Kroes lose weight because she felt that she was unhealthy at her former size, or was it to bow to the pressure of being a thin women in the entertainment industry? Huge difference between the former and the latter.

  • ik vind het goed van haar.
    blijkbaar had ze er zelf een probleem mee, dus laat haar lekker doen. ik snap wel dat ze wat af wilde vallen, want als je dun(ner) bent, voel je je ook gewoon fitter, gezonder. ikzelf heb maat 46, en ben bezig met afvallen. er is namelijk een verschil tussen gezond en gewoon te zwaar, iets wat sommige mensen af en toe lijken te vergeten.
