Former Love Island star Malin Andersson has shared a body confident snap alongside a poignant message to her younger self.
The reality TV star, 25, has faced an incredibly difficult time after after her baby girl Consy passed away in December, when she was just four weeks old after being born seven weeks premature.
Her passing came just months after her mum, also named Consy, passed away from stomach cancer in November 2017.
Brave Malin often speaks out about her struggles in a bid to help other people, and on Wednesday shared a stunning snap in a bikini as she opened up about body confidence in a letter to her younger self.
In the emotional letter, she wrote to her 442,000 Instagram followers: “Hey there young self. I wanna have a quick word with you..
“In around 8-10 years time you would have given birth to the most beautiful little girl. Things weren’t meant to be and she left this earth.. But there’s a lot more to it.
“You finally learnt how to love and appreciate your body. That toned stomach you always wanted – no longer.
“The uplifted perky boobs – no longer… Bra fat, back fat? Yes please. Cellulite? Well it’s been there the whole time but you just stopped stressing and trying to rub your skin raw with weird salts.”
She continued to say how she is now so incredibly thankful for her body, and finally has learned how to love herself.
“What you don’t realise yet is that your body is a machine,” she added. “It’s powerful and is capable of a lot. Look after it, nourish it. Please stop punishing yourself for eating. Don’t make yourself sick or take 3-4 laxatives every night. You’ll be left with IBS and intolerant to a ton of foods.
“It’s not nice believe me… You’ll also love yourself the most you have ever loved. This is your authentic self, the true meaning of self-love.
“Your skin will be glowing, hair and nails ever strong your mind will be in its most clarity and you’ll understand the true meaning of appreciating life and that is doesn’t revolve on the importance of being ‘PERFECT’.
“Oh.. and you’ll also be helping thousands of women/men on different issues. How rewarding is that? That is the definition of fulfilment. What would your future self write to you?”
