As Glamour reported, the Special singer and body positivity activist recently posted a TikTok challenging the assumption that all plus-size people exercise for weight loss. Lizzo stitched a video about this common misconception from creator @tiffriahgrande.

“Heavy on the ‘not trying to escape fatness,'” she told her 26.9 million followers, echoing the original TikToker’s wording. “Heavy fucking on it.”

“I think a lot of people see a fat person that way and immediately just assume everything they are doing is to be thin,” the Grammy- and Emmy-winning artist continued. “I’m not trying to be thin. I don’t ever want to be thin.”

Although Lizzo’s job as a singer and performer is very physically demanding, she repeated that her goal is never to lose weight. Instead, she takes a “holistic” approach to fitness, prioritizing food and forms of movement that make her feel happy.

“I just wanted to stitch this to show support to you because this creator specifically said, ‘I’m looking for people that I can resonate with,'” she concluded. “Very, very same.”
