Kendi Baker wants to get rid of body shaming
Kendi Baker is a Susquehannock High School grad, mother of three and wife to husband, Brad. She's a career woman with a background that spans everything from marketing to hair styling.
But, Baker's new role on the “Dr. Oz” show might be one she's most excited about.
"I've always wanted to be on TV,” Baker said. “Being where we are from, this stuff doesn't happen too often.”
She's all too familiar with the struggle to maintain a healthy weight. She lost more than 100 pounds since her last son was born. She's been a part of programs at Gold's Gym in Shrewsbury, even getting certified to teach Zumba, bootcamp and group fitness. And said she's still a WIP (work in progress). But through it all, she loves herself.
“You don't have to be a size 2 to be fit,” Baker said.
She's helping “Dr. Oz” spread the message “one size doesn't fit all.”
This week, viewers can tune into an episode (we were told it will be on Thursday or Friday) where Baker and several other women try on clothing labeled “one size fits all.” It's Baker's second appearance on the show and it most likely won't be her last.
Baker was selected to be part of this “Dr. Oz” campaign last year when she applied to get tickets for a show. She submitted information about her height and weight and a photo with her family. Then, got a call from a producer asking her to be a part of the show.
Baker said this has been “such an opportunity for her” and “she's honored” to spread the message of self-love.
