The description that was posted with this picture on Facebook reads:

We are celebrating today because Lauren has gone one week without someone saying something mean to her about baby weight gain. That's a new record. Big day is only 9 weeks away!

A week without having something mean said to her is a new record? Great job, guys, way to get someone excited about bringing a new baby into the world. At least the comments seem more supportive, so it's not all bad.

Maybe it's the half serious, half joking tone of this commercial or that April 1st is coming up fast. Maybe it's the fact that they have three pretty normal looking dudes doing silly dances and playing in bubble baths and then that one super hot guy just... doing hot guy stuff?

Some people don't get it, some people love it and others are just glad SOMEBODY brought up the topic.

Is it real or is it a joke? Maybe only time will tell. In the mean time though, seriously, what's up with "Matt" (if that is his real name)? Amid butt selfies and purposely comical Yoga poses, does he not seem like the odd man out?

This image features Carrie Fisher in 2011 compared to now after losing over 35 pounds the newest Star Wars Movie. Fisher told Good Housekeeping UK that she felt pressured to lose the weight in order to reprise her role as Princess (now General) Leia Organa. 

In the interview she expressed dissapointment that after 38 years, Hollywood is still appearance obsessed, particularily when it comes to slimming down female actresses and maybe she has a point. Princess Leia, a badass in her own right (see video below if you need proof), is more often remembered for her sex symbol status in the iconic "Slave Leia" gold bikini.

National Health Services (NHS) worker Kara Florish took to Twitter to document receiving a body-image shaming business card on London's Underground.

The card, which states to be from a group called "Overweight Haters Ltd", reads "fat" in large letters on one side. The other side contains a paragraph with a description of the "organization".

Writer Sean Thomas Knox witnessed a similar, separate body-shaming card incident, and tweeted about it's authenticity.



British Transport Police on Twitter are asking anyone with any information to get in touch with them.

What started as a series of photos meant as a joke has become a trending expectation that may further the negative body images of young women with eating disorders.

The term 'bikini bridge' refers to the space between a woman's bikini bottoms and her stomach while lying on her back. A group of anonymous users of 4chan started circulating a series of the images as a prank. The images included comments like "I love it when...guys notice my bikini bridge" and " if your girlfriend doesn't have a bikini bridge why are you with her?"

But what started as a joke has triggered deep concern regarding the impact of these images on young women with negative body image issues. Experts say that those with eating disorders see this as a challenge and what is a joke to some may be taken very seriously as an aspirational goal to others.
