Even after Adele's former trainer rushed to defend her, Adele isn't receiving much of a positive response to the birthday photograph she posted a few days ago. Now, plus-sized women are bringing important issues out into the limelight in order to help people understand some important facts.
This week, Adele shocked the world.
And she looks incredible.
Adele looks amazing wow. I didn’t even know it was her— benz (@benz)1588754467.0
But let's start from the beginning.
All her albums have been hugely successful.
And things only went up from there...
And that became the song of the year in 2015.Shortly after, she released her next album, 25, which featured iconic songs such as "Send My Love (To Your New Lover)." If you haven't listened to that album, please do yourself a favor and add it to your playlist. You will not be disappointed.
Now, the singer has sold millions of songs worldwide.
But there's another reason fans can't get enough of Adele.
She is known for staying true to herself.
Adele has always been gorgeous, but she always been open about how she wasn't happy with her body...
But, in the last year, Adele has reportedly been working hard to lose weight.
Adele is also known for being quiet on Instagram...
In fact, it's rare if we get a sighting of her at all.
Now, in the last couple of months, we have all noticed a slight change in the singer's appearance...
Adele has just celebrated her thirty-second birthday...
Fans are living for her new look...

Here is the infamous and very beautiful photo.
Obviously, people have been going wild about her shock transformation.

But others haven't been so kind.

People have been truly resentful about her weight loss.
Adele has always been beautiful. But losing weight takes a LOT of hard work and dedication. That’s certainly worthy… https://t.co/oj9djgsWQD— driz (@driz)1588842422.0
Many seem to think that Adele has only lost the weight to fit societal standards...God forbid she would ever lose weight because she wanted to.
But now, someone close to Adele and her weight loss journey has spoken out...
Pete Geracimo is Adele's former personal trainer.
He finds the negativity "disheartening."
He has stressed that Adele does things her way.
And he explained that, for Adele, her goal was never to lose weight...
And she isn't losing weight to live up to society's standards...
And the trainer could not be happier for her.
But even despite this, some people are still bothered by what they are seeing.
The Fatphobia is STRONG this morning. Everyone acting like weight loss is an important milestone in Adele’s illustr… https://t.co/pVl2vaf1Mz— Hayley... But your dad just calls me Katya (@Hayley... But your dad just calls me Katya)1588750633.0
In a post for Metro, she described her feelings, saying this:"A second [after Adele's post] I was drowning in an ocean of slim Adele pics," she wrote. "Many of them posted next to pictures of her taken 10 years ago, when she looked a lot more like me. The message was clear: ‘This is important. She’s a better woman now. She’s more beautiful now. She’s healthier now.'"
She also emphasized that "diet culture" is dangerous."...I will not be quiet about body and beauty standards that continue to disproportionately adversely affect women (I cannot think of a single man who has ever had anything like this response to changes in his body). I have carefully curated a safe space online and I know that many of the people who follow me and I am following have a shared understanding of diet culture and its dangers."
"They accused me of jealousy and being ‘butt hurt’."
