Her daughter called her fat after they went swimming – now her brilliant response has the internet cheering…

The prevalence of obesity is increasing day by day, particularly in the United States, and there are probably even more people who are struggling to lose weight or maintain a healthy weight.

Allison Kimmey, a mother of two at 30 years of age, has chosen to embrace her body just the way it is, after struggling with diets and maintaining a size two to four for years. Presently, she is a size eight and happy with her decision, feeling a sense of liberation from the pressure to attain a slimmer physique.

Allison shares her story on social media through her Instagram handle, @allisonkimmey, where she regularly posts photos and videos that serve as a source of inspiration for many.


Allison’s primary objective is to spread the message of self-love and positivity and encourage people to embrace themselves as they are. Unfortunately, not everyone receives this message, including her young daughter.

During a recent trip to the pool with her children, Allison had hoped for a fun-filled day. However, when it was time to leave, her daughter referred to her as fat after taking a glance at her.


Allison described the experience on her social media and it went like this:

Me: “What did you say about me?”

Her: “I said you were fat, mama. I’m sorry.”

Me: “Let’s talk about it. The truth is, I am not fat. No one IS fat. It’s not something you can BE. But I do HAVE fat. We ALL have fat. It protects our muscles and our bones and keeps our bodies going by providing us energy. Do you have fat?”

Her: “Yes! I have some here on my tummy.”

Me: “That’s right! So do I and so does your brother!”

Her brother: “I don’t have any fat. I’m the skinniest. I just have muscles.”

Me: “Actually, everyone, every single person in the world has fat. But each of us has different amounts.”

Her brother: “Oh right! I have some to protect my big muscles! But you have more than me.”

Me: “Yes, that’s true. Some people have a lot, and others don’t have very much. But that doesn’t mean that one person is better than the other. Do you both understand?”

Both: “Yes, mama.”

Me: “So can you repeat what I said?”

Them: “Yes! I shouldn’t say someone is fat because you can’t be just fat, but everyone HAS fat and it’s okay to have different fat.”

Me: “Exactly right!”

Allison aimed to impart a valuable lesson to her children that weight or size does not determine one’s worth, and everyone is equal, regardless of their physical appearance. This incident also served as a reminder to her followers and others that there is still much work to be done to promote body positivity and acceptance.

In response to her daughter’s comment, Allison shared on her Instagram, “If I shame my children for saying it then I am proving that it is an insulting word and I continue the stigma that being fat is unworthy, gross, comical and undesirable.” Her thoughtful response showcased her unwavering dedication to promoting body positivity and acceptance.

People like Allison are an inspiration, as they strive to spread a message of self-love and positivity while challenging societal norms and expectations surrounding body image.
