*Different viewpoints from siblings are nothing new. And Mara Schiavocampo is no exception as the recently slimmed down ABC News reporter shares an opposing view on weight loss from her sister, Pia Schiavo-Campo.
Mara has generated headlines upon the release of her book “Thinspired: How I Lost 90 Pounds: My Plan for Lasting Weight Loss and Self-Acceptance.” The page-turner details how she lost 90 pounds via healthy eating and daily SoulCycle and Barry’s Bootcamp classes.
On the other side is Pia, a plus-size blogger who runs the website Chronicles of a Mixed Fat Chick. In a blog post that came out as Mara’s book arrived at bookstores, Pia encouraged people to love who they are, no matter their size and not fall into the trap of diet books and pressure to hit the gym.
“If you haven’t already, you will soon be bombarded with ads for the latest exercise craze, discounted gym memberships, or the diet book that will finally change your life,” Pia wrote.
Despite being on different sides when it comes to body image, Pia has nothing but love for Mara and what’s she’s been able to do.
“I’m very proud of my sister’s accomplishment,” Pia told Page Six. “…It’s wonderful to see that we can both finally be in a positive place, even though our bodies look very different.”
