Body positivity is a recently popularised concept that has garnered a lot of steam in the past years. A concept that promotes women and men loving their bodies the way they are regardless of their size, colour, or age is much needed. In a day and age where mobile apps and online tools can change the way your body looks to the world, we must embrace who we truly are. Discarding the false stereotypes that a skinny body is ideal, we must encourage self-love in the most real way possible. A first-year student in college, or a middle-aged homemaker, regardless of who you are, you should be proud of your body.

In the wake of this social movement, we saw Jameela Jamil, famous The Good Place actress and activist, speaking widely and openly about establishing a positive body image for all women. Apart from sharing pictures showing her cellulite and scars, she started an inspiring movement called “IWeigh” which celebrates women’s achievements and not their body weight. This is all the positive vibes that we like, no? Here are 10 tweets by Jamil about body positivity that will make you proud of your body as well…

1. She created the IWeigh Movement, that is brilliant

She spoke with singer Lizzo, about her journey towards self-acceptance and self-love. You can see a snippet of their inspiring talk here:

3. Transphobic near? Have no fear! Jamil to the rescue

4. She calls out social media apps that promote skinny and unrealistic body types

5. She’s not afraid to call out The President of The United States when he body shames women

7. In the wake of the celebrity ‘Diet Tea’ scandal, she made sure to stand her ground and preach the truth

8. Remember the near-total abortion ban bill signed in Georgia last month? She voiced her opinion on her body pretty well

9. She tells us to embrace our cellulite, even if that means calling out multinational companies on their body shaming campaigns

10. Lastly, she shows us exactly how to react when someone tries to body shame you
