Jennifer Livingston is my new hero! She responded to a bully very eloquently. It is my hope that her message will help many who have also been bullied. She is one of the best role models I've ever encountered.
An occasional viewer of WKBT took it upon himself to let his stupidity come pouring out in a letter to Jennifer about her weight. I have always said that stupidity is a relative term--it depends where you're standing at the time. Mr. Krause proves my point.
First of all, it is none of his business what size anyone else is. As a very wise woman has said many times, "he/she is the boss of their own underpants."
Jennifer responded to her bully with a 5-minute answer on WKBT after her husband, Michael, posted the letter on his facebook page.
If Mr. Krause (author of the letter) had done any research, he would have found that yo-yo dieting is one of the worst things a person can do to their body. Also, there are no such things as "fat" diseases. Thin people get the same ailments. Only 5% of dieters keep the weight off long-term. The weight loss industry is the only one that can have a 95% failure rate and still be in business. So, Jennifer, you are beautiful inside and out--your bully cannot even come close to your beauty! Keep up the good work--you are a true inspiration! Jennifer's story
