Ayanda Thabethe took to social media recently to share a candid thought about body image and her journey with her own weight.
The celeb opened up and shared that she sometimes looks at old pictures and remembers how unhappy she was with her body and how seeing the scale would leave her dissatisfied.
Ayanda reflected on how she looked in the photos and wondered whether anyone ever felt satisfied with their weight, which opened up a conversation about how much of an effect body image can have on a person.
Ayanda posted on Twitter:
"When I look back at my old pics, I always think about how skinny I was yet at the time wasn’t happy with the scale, which makes me wonder if anyone is ever happy with their weight..."
