‘My body has fluctuated by over 30 lbs over the last 12 years from health and life stressors (competing in figure competitions, being diagnosed with autoimmune thyroid disease and PCOS, losing my Father unexpectedly to pneumonia, etc) and no matter what my body looked like between 152 lbs. and 185 lbs., I wished it looked differently, ’ she wrote in a Facebook post. ‘I always thought if I could just get “there” then “there” would be enough. If I could just:
…lose 10 lbs.
…have leaner legs.
…lose a clothing size.

The solution isn’t ‘not valuing beauty’ but rather, expanding its definition to include us.’
