I spent far too many years hating my body; now, I've finally reached a kind of peace with myself. I've had a girl sneer at me and call me fat; I just replied, "Well, you're ugly. I can lose a bit of weight, but you'll always have a face like a pig," which shut her up.

I'm not fat, but I can see how those who champion the size zero would think so. Some model agencies give their models serious eating disorders by saying things like, "Ew, thunder thighs, no-one will hire you looking like that," when said model is just a size 12. That's not fat, by anyone's standards.

Katie Green was hired by Wonderbra, who told her to lose two stone. Rather than do that, she quit. Good on her.
