First of all, we are absolute advocates of the body positivity movement. Everyone should stay the way they feel comfortable. Unless it is of course harmful to health. But that also includes the decision to lose some weight. Unfortunately, it’s not that easy, especially when you don’t feel so comfortable in your own skin anyway. Many compensate for stress or problems with eating. The reassuring thing is that many celebrities feel the same way. Of course, it is much easier for them to lose weight, often with a personal chef or trainer. But it’s still good to be positively motivated, isn’t it? Here are a few before and after pictures to take courage …
