Lindsey Vonn, 36, shared an empowering message of body positivity in a new Instagram post.
She shared hurtful internet comments about her body and appearance after posting unfiltered bikini photos.
Lindsey says, "I never Photoshop my photos and am proud to officially never had any plastic surgery of any kind," and tells fans to "stay strong, stay healthy."
It's easy to assume Lindsey Vonn, 36, is superhuman. The Olympian's ski racing record basically is. But, Lindsey is human, and she reminded everyone in her latest Instagram post how the pressure and negativity impacts her.
Lindsey shared a new series of unposed and unfiltered bikini photos. In the caption, she opened up about how scary posting all those bikini pics really is.
"I’ve posted quite a few swimsuit pics lately, which is scarier than it seems. Even as an athlete there are ruthless comments and media stories that tear apart my body and I admit it sometimes hurts me. I’m a normal person and sometimes I slouch, my stomach folds over, my cellulite shows on my butt, or I don’t fill out my swimsuit top just right....But, I always remember how my body has helped me achieve amazing things in my life and I am proud of how strong I am," she wrote.
If you scroll through the carousel, you see photos of Lindsey in various natural, relaxed positions in swimwear. The final slide includes a sampling from internet trolls. It hurts to read the "ruthless" comments.
Lindsey continued with an empowering message about self-acceptance and body positivity: "I’m not a size zero and that’s perfectly fine with me. One thing I can promise all of you is that I never Photoshop my photos and am proud to officially never had any plastic surgery of any kind. No Botox, no fillers, no mini surgeries. Literally nothing. I am 100% natural and 100% Lindsey. So to anyone who is feeling self conscious or down about their appearance; stay strong, stay healthy and love yourself no matter what the haters say.
Special thanks to all of you who have been positive and supportive... lets keep up the culture of body positivity going! ❤️🙏🏻💪🏻."
