Nowadays, women especially teenagers are suffering from body shaming either from a family member, relatives or someone they don’t know. However, it is not plus-sized people suffer from this kind of bullying, but it also affects all sizes and shapes of people that are bullied by their looks or physical differences.

In Filipino society, it is normal to comment on someone’s physical appearance, whether good or bad. If a certain person doesn’t fit with the standard beauty of the society, he or she will have to deal with the pain and humiliation words from other people.

Laki ng hita mo size 32, bewang mo naman 43 mahiya ka naman sa sarili mo”. and the comments she heard from other people lead her to decide that she really need to start losing weight and be physical fit.

Another challenge for her, are the people that instead of supporting her, they still judge Abigail’s capacity to lose weight.
