Sam Smith struggles with their weight “every day”.
The 27-year-old singer took to Instagram on Tuesday to share a topless picture of themselves, and said that over the festive period, they often find themselves gaining a little weight, which can “trigger tricky body issues” when it comes to self-acceptance and body positivity.
Alongside the snap, they wrote: “Christmas time is upon us. This time of the year always triggers tricky body issues with me. I love me some mince pies and all the trimmings, and I always find I gain a bit of weight during this time. I’m writing this out to you all, but also writing this for myself.
"Let’s make sure we remind our bodies during this time that no matter what weight we are, we are deserving of love and acceptance. Let’s love our fluctuating bodies. Look in that mirror and shower that reflection with Christmas kindness. Be super soft. It’s an everyday struggle for me. You aren’t alone xx (sic)”.
Earlier this year, the ‘Too Good At Goodbyes’ hitmaker said they were “finally friends” with their body, after revealing they had undergone liposuction at the age of just 12.
