Let’s address the performance at the 2017 Super Bowl by Lady Gaga and all of the “fat shaming”. The internet is hot with claims that Lady Gaga looked fat at the Super Bowl performance. The media plays a big roll in what women should look like and not to mention what an influence the fitness industry puts on the magazine covers of a “perfect body”. Are we serious that we think Lady Gaga is Fat? I recently hit the cover of my first magazine, the canfitpro magazine – Canadian Fitness Professionals for winning #1 Fitness Instructor Specialist in Canada. The first question my 1o year old daughter asked was “did they photo shop you?” How sad is that?
Lady Gaga Super Bowl: Hip Surgery
Shame on the world for putting that in a 10 year old’s mind but truth be told, there is a lot of photo shopping and putting the “perfect” woman on marketing messages. I watched Lady Gaga perform at the 2017 Super Bowl and I thought it was an incredible performance. All I could think of was how incredibly proud I felt of her because of her shape and knowing her story. Now back it up… in 2013 Lady Gaga had surgery on her hip for a Labral Tear. Excuse me! We have this in common because I had the same surgery and let me tell you what it is like to come back from HIP SURGERY! Ok, I’m shouting now 🙂 12-24+ months of extensive rehab. She is in incredible shape.

Lady Gaga Fat Shaming
I have to admit, when I watched the performance, I noticed her abdomen area and knew there would be a ton of people commenting on her stomach area. Being in the fitness industry for 18 years, I knew with certainty that this would be a big issue because people love to pick at everything. She looked AHHH-MAZING. In fact, she looked in the best shape that I have seen her. Strength in her performance, confident and strength in her body. She came back blazing from a surgery that has an excruciating and long recovery.
Seriously Lady Gaga is Fat?
Shame on Us
The Fitness Industry plays a big role in this area. Every marketing message is about weight loss, get in shape fast, showing the “perfect body”, greased up bodies in magazines, Fitness companies marketing about not loving your body, etc. The list goes on an on. Are we kidding that we are commenting Lady Gaga has a muffin top? Did anyone see that tiny belly? Strong body? What the heck is wrong with us? Think about when was the last time you saw a magazine or fitness brand / company selling anything related to fitness without a person with the image of a “perfect” body.
We need to check ourselves and celebrate our bodies. I would love to hear your comments about what you think.
Recognize and Replace
If you did judge Lady Gaga, recognize your thinking. Are you stuck about your own perception about the perfect body? Replace what you are thinking with a better thought. You have to practice, look at your own self and recognize what bad thoughts and patterns you have created. Love your body exactly where it is to day with all if it’s perfect imperfections.
That’s how Fit4Females is different. We teach you how to love your body at every stage and we work on the inside out.
