A Los Angeles resident, Amani Terrell, wore a bikini along Hollywood Boulevard as her little way of promoting healthy body images. Amani Terrell says she lives in a city where being thin is "in"; however, Terrell wants to show that you can be beautiful no matter what the scale says.
Terrell explains, "I came up with this idea because I live in Hollywood and there's this mass hysteria of perfection in this town. There's a misconception that big women have low self-esteem. I don't have low self-esteem. I'm 260 pounds. I know I do need to lose some weight. However I still love myself regardless."
