Kylie Shea is a strong, gorgeous professional ballerina, but she’s always beenon her legs. She typically fills her Instagram feed with perfectly posed professional photographs of herself, but on Monday she decided to share a “raw and unedited” picture of her legs to help others who are .

“I’ve had cellulite since I was a pubescent teenager and to this day it makes me feel very vulnerable,” she said. “I struggled through years of unhealthy eating habits as a young girl, and I continue to work my way through weight gains and losses to this day.”
Is This Extreme Form Of Intermittent Fasting Safe?
In January 2017, Geoffrey Woo and Michael Brandt, co-founders of HVMN, a Silicon Valley startup that makes supplements, decided that they weren't going to eat for an entire week—and they invited their team to join them. For seven days, those who signed on drank water but ate no food. And they decided to make a video about it.“Fasting provides mental clarity, increases your productivity, and can extend your lifespan,” Woo espoused in a voice-over. “Two main benefits of fasting are autophagy, a natural process of recycling of old cells and creating healthy new ones, and ketosis, using your body’s natural fat stores for upgraded energy.
But, for the very first time, she’s starting to.
“I just finished a very special job this week and have been training incredibly hard to prepare, and today when I looked in the mirror I found myself for the first time not judging my cellulite like I usually do and I was compelled to share this part of me that has always felt so uncomfortable,” Shea said.
She hopes that by sharing this photo, other people will also begin to.
“Social media seems to be flooded with women that have not even a square inch of cellulite, as does the classical ballet world, and so I just wanted anyone out there who struggles with this to know that you are not alone,” Shea said. “Keep training hard and remember that our bodies will respond best to all of our hard work when our minds are healthy and our souls are nourished.”
Why It’s Okay To Be Sad Around The Holidays
No matter where you turn during the holidays, it can feel like everyone is trying to push merriment and joy your way. Sure, it's a nice sentiment. But if you're someone with depression, then all this messaging about happiness and cheer might make you feel guilty about how you actually feel on a regular basis, according to Danielle Forshee, PsyD, LCSW, a relationship therapist in New Jersey and New York."People may feel pressured to feel or present themselves to family members or friends in a way that shows they're okay," Dr. Forshee says.And, for some people, this can add a layer of pressure and stress to an already tense time.
