On July 14, country singer Jessie James Decker took to her Instagram stories to address a Reddit thread that “rips” her apart “on a daily basis” over her weight.
Someone sent her the Reddit page, which made her burst into tears.
“It’s pretty awful, and I cannot believe this is still happening in the world — that people are doing this,” she said while crying. “Yes, I have gained weight, 100 percent. I used to obsessed over it. I tried to stay a certain weight, and most recently, over the past year, I decided to just let myself live. I work out, and I eat what I want, and I 100 percent am 10 pounds heavier than I used to be.”
“How can you wake up and live with yourself?” she asked. “I’m shaking because I cannot believe what I’m reading.”
She continued saying, “It is hurtful, and I am such a strong, confident person, and I always have been, but it does hurt my heart a little that people are ripping every little thing about me apart.”
One day later – on July 15 – Decker posted a photo to her Instagram of her rocking a striped bikini, showing off her super toned body. We’re not sure who is body shaming her, but we think she looks incredible!
She captioned the photo with a simple, “#Cheers.” Check out the photo below.
