Influencer Bree Lenehan has shared her 'real' body with fans on Instagram as she told them there's 'much more to life than weight'.
The body positive star, who boasts 544,000 Instagram followers, shared side-by-side photos of her posing and relaxed in gym wear as she told fans not everything they see on social media is real.
Bree is known for her 'Real Me Monday' series where she debunks 'perfect' posts shared by other influencers.
And fans were loving her latest offering.
In her first snap, Bree was seen sucking in her stomach as she wore a purple gym wear set and trainers.
While in the comparison photo, she breathed out to let her stomach relax.
She also posted similar photos in an orange gym wear set as she revealed what happened when they wind caught her locks.
Captioning the post, Bree wrote: "If your body was invisible and the world could only see you for your heart and soul, would you live life differently?
"Would you say yes to more invitations? Would you be able to live in the moment more? Would you enjoy food more?
"Would you believe in yourself more? Would you be kinder? To yourself and to others?"
She continued: "If I could give my younger self any advice… it would be this: Don’t let your body hold you back. There’s so much more to life than your weight, clothing size & appearance!
"For so many of us, we’ve allowed our harsh views of our body and others’ opinions of beauty affect how we live our lives, what we wear, how we carry ourselves, what we can eat, how much we can eat, how we feel about ourselves & we fill our minds with doubtful thoughts. We treat our bodies like a work in progress, a 'before' photo that doesn’t deserve to be seen.
"But a day we turn down doing something that brings us joy is a day of happiness we will NEVER get back. So I encourage you to do something this week you’ve been holding off on… Maybe it’s dining out, or going to the beach, rocking a cute dress, or wearing a bright crop top. What is that thing for you? Let me know below… I’ll go first!
"Whatever it is, you deserve to enjoy it. You deserve to be seen. You deserve to be comfortably & unapologetically you. Today, tomorrow and every day after that."
The influencer concluded by saying: "I don't know about you, but to me, real is beautiful. Softness is beautiful. YOU are beautiful.
"Just leaving these posts here every Monday to break up your feed a lil & remind you not to let your mind bully your body.
"Happy Real Me Monday."
Fans were loving the post, with it racking up more than 9,000 likes.
One told her: "Every time I see a post of yours you instantly make me feel so much better. Thank you."
While another added: "This is sooo important! Thank you for spreading so much light to others."
A third also chimed in: "I love these posts."
And a fourth branded her an "absolute queen".
It comes after Bree hit headlines earlier this month for showing what models look like when they 'breathe out'.
