Whitney Cummings Appreciates Jameela Jamil
Looks like Whitney Cummings was quick to reciprocate the public appreciation she received from Jameela Jamil. Only a few hours later, she also made an Instagram post dedicating it to her friend Jameela.
She expressed everything that the actress had done for her including promoting positive messages of self-love. Like many others, Cummings no longer felt the need to deprecate herself anymore. It’s thanks to the positivity radiating from Jameela’s ideology and her I Weigh Campaign.
I Weigh Campaign’s Positive Message
I weigh Campaign is a social media campaign where people around the world are encouraged to accept their real bodies. They’re taught to not obsess over the number they weigh. In essence, people are taught to love themselves and whatever identity they choose to have. For this reason, Whitney Cummings wishes she had such a campaign to teach her this enlightening message when she was 19. At that age, many people bullied her on her weight. Eventually, making her even more conscious of it and hate herself for it.
She did whatever she could to make sure she looked thin like Kate Moss, even shifting to diet coke which ended up harming her physically.
This point has time and time again highlighted by Jameela Jamil; that this obsession with thin bodies leads us to adopting methods and ways that harm us physically and mentally. Hence, we shouldn’t obsess over it as it our physical and mental health matters a lot more than what we look like.

Thank you @jameelajamilofficial for being the real deal, walking the walk, and always telling me to shut the fack up when I self-deprecate or bully myself. I sure wish @i_weigh existed when I was 19 and my hair was falling out because I only ate Diet Coke to try and look like Kate Moss
