Apr 18th, 2023

A BODY-POSITIVE gym lover has spoken out about the difficulties of having a happy relationship with exercising.

The TikTok influencer posted a video sharing her experiences of trying to overcome the desire to become "the smallest version" of herself.

Shelby (@shelbysaywhatblog) has almost 500k followers and often shares fashion tips for midsize women.

She captioned her recent video: "No one ever talks about how hard it is to build a relationship with exercise that isnt about hating your body.

"After youve spent years obsessively, losing weight, dieting, and burning calories only to be the smallest version of myself."

In a different style to her usual upbeat and glamorous videos, the influencer showed herself looking flustered and downbeat mid-workout.

It was accompanied by a trippy soundbite in the background of "hey, hey, hey, hey, are you even paying attention to me right now?"

The brunette opened up about her past relationship with her body.

"Pov: you're trying to build a healthy relationship w/ fitness that isn't about obsessive weight loss & dieting but then your body dysmorphia starts acting up at the gym," she wrote in screen-text.

Her followers rushed to the comments to share their support for her honesty and continuous positivity.

One wrote: "I LOVE seeing your gym content for the record, it makes me feel good."

They continued: "Its amazing how some days I feel totally confident & other days its absolute imposter syndrome like have I ever worked out before."

Another added: "Im proud of you. This is such an uphill battle. Its happened to me less and less as time passes and I hope the same for you."

Meanwhile, The U.S. Sun exclusively spoke to a 24-year-old toothless influencer who is embracing her appearance.

At just 19, she was left without teeth after continuous vomiting from medication obliterated her teeth.

She had to wear dentures, struggled to feel confident, and was left constantly hiding her mouth.

But now she has taken toTikTokto share her story and self-acceptance journey insisting she will no longer hide her smile.
