I used "Healthy" with reference to a person's overall immunity, stamina, flexibility which hasn't been compromised because they are on the plumper side.
So yes, I do agree with you.
Hm. How do you define healthy? I think body positivity is nice but being positive about overflowing fat rolls simply because people are insecure about them is cruel. I say it is cruel because how would you classify praising someone for giving into their physical sexual desires and wasting away their life by renting sex workers each night? If this is how they want to live, fine. But that doesn't mean they are living healthily and it certainly doesn't mean that they should be praised for it. It is cruel because it is saying that one should be proud of being overweight while looking at a life expectancy of 50 years.
As long as you mean the "shapes and sizes" are actually healthy and not just body shapes other than skinny or curvy with clear skin (without stretch marks, I mean), then I stand by you. But I would never praise someone for being proud of being unhealthy. What kind of generation would we raise if we told them it's okay to be grossly overweight and physically incapable? A damn sad one, I'd say.
