We need more women like this to acknowledge the beauty of all body types. I personally find slim girls less attractive.

Her weight-loss journey has inspired a ton of people, but it's also angered countless"fat activists," who have taken to sending her hate emails and YouTube videos over her transformation.

Mercado struggled to get her modeling career off the ground before, but the changes she made landed her a contract with TRUE Model Management, and a more active life with her kids.

I love it when big girls shine. She has a positive self image. Good for her.

Rosie Mercado is a plus-sized model who, over the course of three years, altered her diet and lifestyle and lost roughly 250 pounds. Such a transformation (when done in a healthy and conscientious way) is incredible, and truly awe-inspiring. However, there are certain individuals who don’t exactly see it that way.
