Gonyeti says she  is not bothered by people mocking her weight.

“Being a plus size does not mean I’m disabled or I cannot do anything in life. I’m good as I am. I’m a proud plus size woman, chidhunda. I’m proud of who I am, I was born that way and I have to love the body. We were all created in the image of God and those who body shame others do it out of ignorance,” she told the Daily News.

Gonyeti said as much as people raise the health card, there are also slender women suffering from similar diseases.

“Whether slender or plus size we are all the same. Some have said go on a running path, shed weight to avoid heart diseases. There are slender women out there suffering heart diseases. I’m happy with my body,” she said.
