Here's what she wrote:

"There is no shame in gaining weight during pregnancy (or ever). There is no shame if it takes longer than you think it will to lose the weight (if you want to lose it at all). There is no shame in finally breaking down and making your own jean shorts because last summer's are just too dang short for this summer's thighs. Bodies change. Bodies grow. Bodies shrink. It's all love (don't let anyone tell you otherwise.)"

Anne had earlier posted a picture of her in a bikini during her pregnancy.

It's such a delight to see her glowing both inside and out!

So many of us doubt our bodies owing to beauty standards set by society and the beauty industry. And when someone we look up to says something as empowering as this, it is reassuring to say the least. Thanks, Anne. You inspire us.
