Anna went on to say that belly rolls, cellulite, and stretch marks are nothing people should be ashamed of—or be focused on getting rid of. “As I'm getting older, I have cellulite and stretch marks that aren't going away, and I welcome them,” she says. “They represent a life fully lived and a healthy life and body at that. How can I be mad at my body for perfectly normal ‘flaws?’”
Anna points out that her body is strong, can run miles, and can lift all kinds of weight, and she feels good because of what her body can do. She finished with this message: “So when you approach your journey, I want you to remember these things: I will not punish my body, I will fuel it, I will challenge it, AND I will love it.”
This isn't the first time Anna has gotten real about her own "flaws." In May she shared a similar set of comparison photos taken right before her wedding: one with flawless abs, and one with rolls. "If you focus on how bad you look in the bad angles, at least focus on how good you look in the good ones too!!" she wrote.
Apparently fans are getting the message: Over 320,000 people have liked Tuesday's post so far.
