Recently, Kim Kardashian revealed her weight: 119 pounds. Kendall Jenner and Khloé Kardashian both praised Kim for her body, commenting on how “skinny” she was.

Emmy Rossum Opens Up About Body Image Issues
In response to Kim’s weight reveal, Emmy made her own public statement on her Instagram Story.
The only time I was 119 pounds is when I had MONO on a magazine shoot
and everyone was ‘freaking out over how good’ I looked. I had lost ten pounds and was gaunt and sick and felt faint … It totally messed with my head … You never know what someone is going through. If you’re having a tough time with body image, I promise you’re beautiful and this feeling will pass. Today is just a moment. Practice some self-care and reboot. Take a bath. Take a walk. Take a yoga class. Make a healthy nutritious meal and watch your favorite funny movie. Tomorrow is another day.
Stephanie Beatriz Also Posted Something on Her Instagram About Her Past Body Image Issues
Kim Kardashian saying what she weighs and her sisters complimenting her being so skinny is like eating my brain rn. There’s only one time in my life when I ever weighed 119 pounds. It was right in the middle of a terrible relationship, and intense eating disorder, and I thought that I could be thinner and look even better. Everyone kept complimenting me on how I looked, and I felt desperate to stay at that weight. It sucked.

At Any Rate, Body Positivity is a Must
Despite the constant pressure to be thin, skinny or thick, women need to accept what their body type has to offer. It’s totally refreshing to hear about past struggles from women who have been there. Emmy Rossum, Stepanie Beatriz and Rhianna all have the right mindset. Accept yourself because you’re beautiful, no matter what your shape is from one month to the next.
