MAR ORTIZ IS a cast member on US TV show Big Women: Big Love – a reality programme that “follows the ups and downs of plus sized women in their daily lives”.

This week though, she has gone international after a selfie she posted to Facebook was shared over 30,000 times.

In it, she showed off her love handles and had a message for her fans


Her post began:

Someone told me “Mar you’re losing weight….” I said “Really? You think so? I eat a burger, fries and pizza like everyday…” LOL Why does size matter? Big or small…. I love my LOVE handles!

She continued her story – which has nearly 100,000 likes at this stage - to say that she celebrates her size every day:

I don’t care about having abs or eating a salad everyday. I do believe in taking healthier days and balance. I ‪#‎celebratemysize everyday! I love my curves and body. If I want to lose weight it will be a personal choice and it shouldn’t matter to anyone else but me.

And once it went viral, she posted a more SFW image for all the haters – with a nice crown on her head
