Monique




Do you guys think Monique is doing more damage than harm to black women...people? Many times Monique preaches that's it's ok to be obese, I understand her position in trying to uplift women who might otherwise have self esteem issues, but does her type of rectoric do more damage than good? The reality is obesity is a major problem for the the black community, both men and women, and as you know heart disease and cancer are directly related to obesity. So do you think she should change her message?

I think Monique tries to justify the fact that she is too LAZY to lose weight by glorifying her hefty size and insulting "skinny bitches". The truth is she's probably moderately healthy, I'm sure she does the standard checkups. But I'm sorry..she looks uncomfortable as hell. I am not obese and I feel so pudgy at times in certain clothing. And ladies, we all know how "our girl" makes us feel each month...inwardly I'm positive that Monique wishes could lose a few (like 70) pounds.

Monique gets on my @#%! nerves!

(Sorry, but you touched a nerve w/ this one) She is too fat and she glorifies it! Her "reality" shows glorified being fat and stereotyped black women worse than white people do.

My local radio station has now added her radio talk show to the lineup from 2-6pm and I tell ya IT REALLY SUCKS. I don't even listen to the radio anymore (just my CDs). She tries to act like she is educated (maybe she is), but she sure doesn't sound like it. My advice to her--LOSE WEIGHT AND STICK TO COMEDY!!

Yeah, Monique is too heavy and should not be encouraging women to remain so. It's not even about being thin, it's about being healthy. She breathes and sweats way too much. Not cute.

I dont think she is wrong. I used to,but Im realizing now that you wont have the motivation necessary to make substantial changes to your body unless you come to peace with who you are NOW! It important for people with less than desirable frames LOVE THEMSELVES FULLY! Then and only then will they have the fuel (long term) to make and sustain positive changes.
