Fat Shaming Weight Loss on Facebook

Now that social media is such an ingrained part of our lives, so too is the ‘selfie’.  For those of you who are unaware, a selfie is a photo that you take of yourself (usually to publish on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc) and is something that Gen-Y’s LOVE to do!  However, there is a controversial weight loss page on Facebook which encourages people to upload photos of themselves in only their underwear, in order to ‘shame’ them into losing weight. 

The 12-week weight loss program is called ‘Frank Personal Training Program’ and you can ONLY join if you are willing to upload ‘selfie’ shots in your underwear each week you are on the program.  The founder of the program, Frank Gorman, believes that while the photos may be perceived as humiliating, they are essential for success.  You can read more about the program here:   http://www.news.com.au/lifestyle/health/would-you-turn-to-facebook-shaming-to-lose-weight/story-fneuzkvr-1226770668407

I don’t know about you, but I CERTAINLY think that this is something I would NEVER do.  I mean, how would you feel about a photo like that being posted on Facebook with potential audience of millions seeing you with so much flesh on display?  Yep, it’s definitely confronting and, as we know, a photo on Facebook can end up anywhere!  How would you like it if people you work with knew exactly how you looked in your undies…?  It would be difficult to look them in the eye every day.
