Posting a collage of herself at three stages in her weight journey the ex Geordie Shore star gets real about weight, and reveals how she’s at her happiest now that she has a healthy attitude to her body image.
“Here are three wildly different images of my body and they tell a story! In the first pic I was around a size 16, unfit, unhealthy and most importantly - regardless of my grin - I was unhappy,” Vicky begins her Instagram post.
“In the second image I’d slimmed down with the help of my fitness dvd - I was a size 6 with no boobs and pretty much no life. I became obsessed, too focused and this in turn was also detrimental to my health. I wasn’t enjoying the amazing gift of life as I was too worried about the calorie content of a blueberry,” she adds.
“In the third pic, I am around a size 10, all boobs, bum and zero apology! I train hard, I eat right about 80% of the time but my life doesn’t revolve around what the scales say,” she tells her nearly four million followers.
“I am a strong, healthy, realistic woman with a good balance of work and home life. I am in short, HAPPY. And that’s what I wanted you to know.”
Vicky then advises fans to enjoy life and insists that that a good diet and exercise habits can be a part of a happy lifestyle, “Don’t allow your happiness to completely hinge on what the scales say!
“Be happy because you’re alive, see exercise as a celebration of what your body can do not a punishment for what you’ve ate, use food as fuel not a means to curb boredom and most importantly: eat the cake once in a while... because life is for living and cake is great.”
