Slim Fast Ad Targets Overweight Brides?

  |   By Roseanne Dela Rosa

When I first clapped eyes on these Slim Fast ads, I didn't know whether to laugh, be outraged or do both. In the end, I went with laughing. I'm all for getting your butt into "healthy" mode, but I'm sorry these ads are hilarious. They certainly do pay tribute to almost every bride/woman's insecurities: an oversize butt, seeing your groom struggle to carry you, and–heaven forbid–falling through your cake (very unlikely that will happen). Anyways, the point of this post really drove me to empower all of you not to pay any attention to these ad ideas. Take them for what they're worth–entertainment. Being beautiful and happy (inside and out) on your wedding day is what counts–after all your mister fell in love with you.. not the notion of you half your weight later. This is just my opinion, how do you ladies feel? Let's talk :)
