She added: “When I am not entirely body confident I try not to give myself a hard time but sometimes I do beat myself up, then I get back on the band wagon and get back to feeling myself! & THIS is what I teach and train others to do too.
“I practice what I preach to myself AND to others. We all fluctuate and have peaks and troughs and that’s OK!!”
Plugging her new plan, she ended the post with: "It’s safe to say LDSU3 has come right when I needed it!
"And it seems many more of you did too! Thank you to everyone who is signed on to the next four weeks! Let’s get kick 2021’s January Ass! #shapeupwithgabbyallen."

Another said: “So refreshing THANKYU for this,” while a third added: “Honestly Gabby, it's great for people to see both sides – we all have days of our equivalent of both, and I feel much better when I see its reality for people like you, in the nicest way.”
