One person exclaimed: “Amen my girl! We are meant to fit INTO clothes”, while another shared their struggle: “Aghh this is so hard for me!”

A third chimed in with a positive note, saying: “Beautiful, and soft squishy bellys are the best if you ask me.”

On the other hand, a fourth person was somewhat ambivalent, stating: “Depends! I’m all for looking and feeling vomited and loving and loving the bodies we have at different stages.

“BUT sometimes those ups and downs… they are sign of bad habits and they are alerts to bring about change. Beware of the message!! I’m not sure what to do with it.”

Previously, Danielle has been candid about her weight gain journey and her evolving relationship with food. There was a period when she aimed for a very thin figure, but eventually, she sought a change.

Fed up with fretting over her diet, she chose to embrace life more fully and allow herself to enjoy the foods she loves. While she maintains a balanced lifestyle, her body has naturally become fuller.

Reflecting on her transformation, she remarked: “We put so much pressure on ourselves to avoid our body changing, to look like we did when we were younger and/or look like a body we scrolled past on social media. But, bodies change.”

“And while we’ve been taught to view that negatively, it’s actually incredibly normal and OKAY. The difference between these photos isn’t just weight gain; it’s also mental growth, freedom and happiness that came from seeing food as more than just calories and ‘bad’.”
