22-årige Jayne Crabbe fra England har taget Instagram med storm på grund af sin dødcharmerende holdning til kropsidealer.

Efter hun selv led af anoreksi i en periode, er det lykkedes hende at få ændret sit syn på sig selv og sin krop, og nu har hun gjort det til sit mål at hjælpe andre med at gøre det samme.

Nu har hun over 300.000 følgere på sin Instagram-profil, hvor hun med evigt godt humør fremviser sin buttede krop uden den mindste snert af flovhed.

En bedrift, som mange - både kvinder og mænd - nok ville blive gladere mennesker af at kunne gøre.

Her er et par af hendes søde billeder - husk at læse hendes inspirerende tekster til billederne:

I want you to promise me something - that when life knocks you down, when you stumble, when you lose, when you get hurt or scared or lost in the darkness, you won't blame the pain on your body. Promise me that you won't start thinking 'If only I was thinner/prettier/curvier/more perfect this would never have happened'. Promise me that you won't turn against the vessel that does everything it can everyday to keep you alive. To get you through the darkness. Promise me that you will be gentle with the fragile outer shell you've been given. That you won't shame it, blame it, torture it, shun it, or convince yourself that it's the root of all your problems. Promise me that you will try with everything you have to be gentle and kind to your body, and to yourself, through it all. I promise I will. 💜💙💚🌈🌞

I think that one of these pictures is more beautiful than the other. But it's not the one you think. One would be called curvy, the other fat. One looks like a 'before', the other looks like an 'after'. One will inspire people to tell me that I'm unhealthy, unworthy, unlovable. The other will be praised, admired, desired. And even though I've spent my life believing that the version of me on the left is more valuable than the version on the right, I've changed my mind now. I think it's more beautiful just to be yourself. Because the picture on the left was taken with all the pressures of what a 'perfect' body should look like in mind. The body is posed. The face is polished. The angle is unnatural. And while both these pictures are me, I don't see myself in the picture on the left. I see everything our culture wants me to be. And I still don't quite measure up. In the picture on the right, I am relaxed. I am content. I am celebrating all the parts of myself I've been taught to be ashamed of for my whole life. The rolls on my stomach, the cellulite dotting my thighs, my face bare and my mind free from what anybody else wants me to be. And that freedom is beautiful. More beautiful than a perfect pose or a flattering angle could ever be. It's the kind of beauty that's in us all, exactly as we are. If only we could learn how to see ourselves clearly. 💜💙💚🌈🌞

Do you wanna know the truth about gaining weight? Because I've done a whole lot of it. I used to believe that my life would end over a couple of extra pounds on the scale. I used to believe that losing weight was the most important thing in the world. I used to believe that there was no such thing as going too far, getting too thin, losing too much. Then I nearly lost my life. There were only two options left: gain weight, or die. So I gained weight. More and more. Anorexia morphed into binge eating disorder and within a year I'd gone from 65lbs lying on my death bed to 180lbs, right back to self loathing and wanting to lose weight more than anything in the world. I lost and gained hundreds of pounds over the years. I'd clawed my way back from the edge and still I believed that happiness could be found in the dropping numbers on a bathroom scale. Until I realised that no weight loss had ever made me happy. No amount of disappeared pounds had made me stop hating my body. And chasing thinness had made me lose much more than weight - I'd lost myself. Now I know that no matter how much extra jiggle might come along, nothing important about me will have changed. I'll still have the same heart, the same mind, the same passion, the same love. The scale will never be able to tell me anything about myself that truly matters. It doesn't have the power to define me - only I do. And I refuse to keep chasing that empty promise of happiness granted through restriction and self hatred. I'll take my happiness right now. We are all so worthy of it, exactly as we are. Don't be afraid of gaining weight, my love. There's a whole life for you to gain when you stop letting those numbers dictate your worth. 💜💙💚🌈🌞

Hemmeligheden bag Jaynes sunde forhold til sin krop er en åbenbaring, som hun fik, efter hun havde været besat af vægt i en årrække, og skiftevis havde været farligt undervægtig og farligt overvægtig.

- Det var indtil jeg indså, at ikke et eneste vægttab nogensinde havde gjort mig glad. Intet antal af tabte kilo fik mig til at holde op med at hade min krop. Og jagten på tyndhed havde fået mig til at tabe meget mere end vægt - jeg havde tabt mig selv, siger hun til Hello Giggles.
