Lena Dunham spoke about feeling ‘joyous and free’ at a heavier weight, and it’s something we probably all need to hear once and a while.

In a typically honest Instagram caption, the Girls writer compared two paparazzi photos of herself at different weights. “On the left, 138 pounds, complimented all day and propositioned by men and on the cover of a tabloid about diets that work. Also sick in the tissue and in the head and subsisting on only small amounts of sugar, tons of caffeine and a purse pharmacy,” she wrote.

On the right: 162 pounds, happy, joyous and free, complimented only by people that matter for reasons that matter, subsisting on a steady flow of fun/healthy snacks and apps and entrees, strong from lifting dogs and spirits.

Even this OG body positivity warrior sometimes looks at the left picture longingly, until I remember the impossible pain that brought me there and onto my proverbial knees. As I type I can feel my back fat rolling up under my shoulder blades. I lean in.

A nice reminder that health is much more than a number on a scale. <3

Sorry, is there anything Jonathan Van Ness can’t do?

The Queer Eye fave transforms lives, cuts hair, grows a great moustache, dances in heels, and now proves that he can literally twist himself into pretzels.

All of a sudden we’re feeling very stiff and inflexible. *books into yoga class*

We’re not for digging up celebrities’ old tweets, but these from Hailey Baldwin about her now-fiancé Justin Bieber are simply too much. 

Back in 2011 and 2012, Hailey was a HUGE fan of Justin and Selena Gomez’s relationship. Really. She thought they were ‘perfect’ together and was ‘100% Team #Jelena’:

2011 was a different time! 👀

It’s worth remembering that the pair were introduced by Hailey’s dad Stephen Baldwin at a Bieber meet-and-greet. Tweet your idols! They might want to date you.

And now it’s time for… #What’sChrissyUpTo?

Cos she’s always up to something.

She’s calling out the Trump weirdos again, as she does so well:

Seriously MAGA-hat-gal, have you seen Mulan? She fought for her country! Though you probably wouldn’t let her into the US. *shrug*
