Lena Dunham seems to be in a really good place right now!
In fact, the actress says she’s feeling “happy, joyous, and free” after opening up about her 24 pound weight gain. Embracing herself as an “OG body positivity warrior,” she also hinted at her battle with endometriosis, which she has brought awareness to in the past!
Taking to Instagram on Tuesday with a new post comparing herself at 138 pounds to now at 162, she shared:
“On the left: 138 pounds, complimented all day and propositioned by men and on the cover of a tabloid about diets that work. Also, sick in the tissue and in the head and subsisting only on small amounts of sugar, tons of caffeine and a purse pharmacy. On the right: 162 pounds, happy joyous & free, complimented only by people that matter for reasons that matter, subsisting on a steady flow of fun/healthy snacks and apps and entrees, strong from lifting dogs and spirits. Even this OG body positivity warrior sometimes looks at the left picture longingly, until I remember the impossible pain that brought me there and onto my proverbial knees. As I type I can feel my back fat rolling up under my shoulder blades. I lean in.”
