She’s 10 kilograms too heavy with one stomach roll too many.
Her thighs are too wobbly and her buttocks and boobs too saggy.
Fortunately, tomorrow is Monday – the start of a new week and the start of your strict, tasteless and food-free diet (because it’s not nutritious, it’s starving).
After three miserable days, the diet falls by the wayside and it’s back to that hearty sandwich at your favourite café and avoiding the mirror at all cost.
The unhealthy cycle of dieting and bingeing is one that has too many women in its nasty clutches.
The easiest way to beat it is to love your body. And that’s exactly what one curvy model has decided to do.
KhrystyAna, a model and advocate for body-positivity on social media, shared a powerful post on Instagram about how she found happiness when she made the decision to love her body, no matter its shape or size.
“In 2013 I thought I wasn't small enough to be a fashion model and, technically, I’ve never been small enough,” the attractive blonde writes in the caption of the post. She shared two images alongside each other of her during her diet days and what she looks like now.
“Even back then, with all the dietary suffering and daily long hours at the gym, I was at 37,5 hip size, a bit too thick.
“Was I happy? Absolutely not.”
KhrystyAna, from San Francisco in the US, further writes how she neglected herself because of her unhappiness.
“I didn’t care about my happiness nor mental health, it was all about getting the next gig. I found myself depressed, going through an identity crisis.
“I gained more weight, hated myself more and more until I had no more energy left within me to hate anything.
“But exhaustion was somehow freeing. Freeing from thoughts.”
But during her exhaustion, the model says she experienced a defining moment.
“Blank-brained, I looked at this newer but older me. No more striking judgments.
“Why? Why should we ever wreck ourselves? For career? Parental approvals? Romances? Or fame? Why did I? Why would you ever?”
And she has a message of encouragement to every woman battling with self-love.
“Trust the nowest [sic] you, trust that this is deserving of all your love. It really is.”
