This Aussie model shared a very different kind of before and after post

Repeat after us: health comes in all shapes and sizes; skinny does not necessarily equal healthy; losing weight will not make you happy.

While we all know that fitting into sample size clothing doesn't make you a superior being, sometimes we need a little reminder. Today's dose of body positivity comes via Aussie model — and one half of Insta-babes @Any.Body_Co — Kate Wasley.

Recently, Kate posted a very different kind of before and after to Instagram. In the 'before' picture on the left, Kate is at her lightest (and also very unhappy). Whereas in the 'after' snap on the right, we see Kate as she is now. She posted the before and after to share her emotional experiences with fad dieting and obsessive calorie counting.

If we saw more before and afters like this on Instagram, the world would a much more chill, much happier place. Thank you, Kate.
