Leave it to JK Rowling to speak words I couldn't before put together. I couldn't agree more with what she has to say because there's always that little ping of annoyance when someone says "you've lost weight" or "I'm getting fat again". I don't see that in people because I don't let myself define people by there appearance, rather I see what they've contributed to the world. I see who someone is so as Rowling put it: "Let my daughters be Hermiones..."
Did you know that Hermione was named after the daughter of Helen in Ancient Greek mythology? JK Rowling picked the uncommon name because she didn't want young girls that shared the name of Hermione's character to be picked on.
"I was set free, because my greatest fear had already been realized, and I was still alive, and I still had a daughter whom I adored, and I had an old typewriter and a big idea. And so rock bottom became the solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life." - J.K. Rowling J.K. Rowling's 20 Quotes on Writing
