"Not when we were laying in bed, not when I had stomach ache, not when he walked passed me in the kitchen, literally never.

"I was so afraid that he would feel my softness and be put off, repelled, or even repulsed.

"He did absolutely nothing to make me feel those things, but I had convinced myself for so many years that my tummy needed to be smooth, to be toned, and to be ‘flat’ in order to be loved.

"I have since learned that that was in fact a lie we’ve been fed since we were children, and actually all tummies are lovable and all bodies deserve love.

"I hope you’re letting yourself be loved."

Many social media users were inspired by Nelly and were quick to take to the comments to express this.

One person commented: "Finally letting myself be loved like this is the best feeling ever."

Another user added: "It's been eight years and I still struggle, thank you so much for posting this."
