Not your girl 💄✨
Shelby has been very open on social media about her weight struggle—although in plain sight she looks great! She recently went viral after sharing a hurtful conversation she had via text with her boyfriend.
"I am 120 pounds. I have been for about 5 months. My partner said this to me. Am I overreacting for feeling hurt by this? I’m at a loss and just can’t even comprehend how someone who claims to love me can say this," she expressed.
She also explained how she weighed 120 lbs when they met, so basically, nothing changed, but her BF still body-shamed her for her "beer gut."
People on Twitter began to respond to her question and offered amazing advice!
After going viral—nearly 6,000 retweets and 40,000 likes later—Shelby announced she was officially single!
"I want to update you guys that we are broken up. He was really unhappy and felt like shit, especially after knowing my tweet went viral. He has told me he’ll use this as a learning experience to be a better person. And here I am, single and free." Stay beautiful, Shelby!
As a lot of you know, I recently went viral after asking for advice on Twitter on if I was right in feeling hurt by my (now ex) for saying I had beer gut and that he thought my gut stuck out more than this which was “weird.” I want to say some things.. 1) My ex is not a horrible human being. There’s a reason I did not include his name in the screenshots or publicly name him. He mistreated me during our time together and I left. Things were not going well even before his comments about my weight. He said he’s going to work on himself. That’s all I can ask. I did not post on Twitter to shame him in anyway. Just to seek advice. 2) I’ve struggled with my weight my whole life. Doctors don’t know why I was so skinny for years or why I started gaining. I am at a HEALTHY GOAL weight. 115-120 was what I needed to be. I am where I need to be. 3) I had no idea I’d go viral. I had about 200 followers on twitter when I posted. Now I have news outlets everywhere covering my story and asking for interviews. I do not want to make this about my ex. I want to use this as a way to empower women and show that body positivity is something that can be achieved. My only goal is to use whatever “fame” I’m gaining to make people feel good and spread love 💓 All the kind words I’ve gotten have meant everything to me. Everyone who shares their story touches me in a different way. So thank you!
