Many women struggle when it comes to losing weight after pregnancy and going back to a shape or size that they are comfortable with.

In the caption accompanying the picture, Danielle Brooks wrote that even though she brought a human into the world, she still felt shame because she wasn’t able to maintain her normal body weight after the pregnancy. She shared that a year later she had only managed to lose around a third of her weight gain and had to forget about her hopes of posting a snatch-back photo like other celebrities would do.

While she was honest about her experience with shame, Brooks also voiced her support for a fellow sister-in-curves, Lizzo. The singer was recently shamed by her fans for sharing how focused she was on her diet and health. Brooks said that Lizzo and other girls struggling with weight loss should be allowed to share their healthy choices publicly and not be made to feel bad about trying to be healthy.
