See This Popular Instagrammer's Inspiring Words about Weight Gain
Beck Jackson has a healthy attitude about losing her six-pack.
Most before-and-after photos on Instagram display stories of weight loss and muscle gain, especially when you make your living as a an influencer on Instagram. But fitness influencer Beck Jackson of Melbourne, Australia, is showing that sometimes your #bodytransformation can include a little weight gain—and that's OK.
Last week, the 23-year-old posted a photo of her looking incredibly toned at the beach next to one of her looking slightly rounder after letting herself indulge during the holidays.
She captioned it with some inspiring words indicating that she's aware she's gained some weight, and she's fine with it:
Your body will fluctuate so much throughout adulthood and it really shouldn't take over your life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Yes I've probably gained a kilo or two (I don't actually know because I don't weight myself) but yes I'm less toned than I was 4 months ago, no I don't think I'm unhealthy, no I'm not unhappy.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You know why? I've had fun, I've been on holidays, I've been eating amazing food, I haven't been beating myself up when I don't get to the gym because I'm too busy living my life, ive been really really HAPPY! That's why I may look a little "softer" than I did 4 months ago. ⠀⠀⠀
The fitness star added that if this had happened when she was 19 or 20, she "probably would have had a severe mental breakdown."
"I was never confident within myself and that meant that regardless of how much I weighed or what I looked like, or how defined my ab muscles were, I would never be happy with myself," she wrote.
She concluded with a great tip, "Try to stay healthy, exercise regularly, but your body doesn't define who you are as a person, your weight shouldn't control your life, and if you want to eat a bowl of ice cream after dinner – EAT A BOWL OF ICECREAM AFTER DINNER! Because life is too short to give up those simple little pleasures."
The body positivity post was enormously popular among her 208,000 followers, who applauded her realness and healthy attitude to weight gain.
