Instagramers!!! Needing assistance; how do I curate my advertisements???

hi guys!is there anyone instagram savvy out there? Despite having an all fat-positive ‘gram, I’m still getting diet culture ads everywhere! Things like skinny tees, or underwear that ‘flattens your stomach,’ or supposedly boPo active wear that’s actually pro-weight loss. I keep reporting them as scam/misleading, but they keep coming! Its really frustrating, especially because I am so close to the point where I don’t want to lose weight/want to stay at my current body weight!!! Any help/tips…See More
