“I feel safe posting pics like this for all of you because I get how hard it is to feel good in our skin — whether we’re trying to lose or gain weight, whether we’ve had babies or not,” she wrote on Instagram. “We are under constant scrutiny. I am not perfect, I have not reached all my goals, I still see all my flaws first. But progress is everything, and one positive feeling begets another.”

She also thanked fans for having her back.

“I love that you guys shut down the obvious trolls that show up on here every now and then because they seriously have no other place or way to feel heard,” she wrote. “I try not to give them too much thought, but know that I appreciate every single one of you and you make me smile and feel good every day.”

Well said, Daphne! We think you look fabulous.
