Meet Callie Thorpe, a 28-year-old style blogger, who just served her followers a fresh dose of reality, the topic: cellulite. Callie recently spent her honeymoon in Mexico, where she posted photos of herself in a swimsuit, as one would do on holiday, but after some horrific comments about her body, she decided to send out a PSA, and it's an incredibly important message about cellulite.
"Let's talk about cellulite," she wrote on Instagram. "I have it, you most likely have it. It's a part of our skin, it's bumps of fat underneath said skin and I promise you that no matter how many creams or how much you 'brush your skin' you will still have it. It makes no difference on you as a person or certainly on how attractive you are. As @gabifresh once said you can't get Cellulite without 'U LIT.'"
Preach, Callie! With all the terrible body-shaming that goes on across social media, it's really important to remember her message that cellulite is not a reflection of who you are as a person, and one cannot base their self-worth based on if they have it or not.
if you feel you have to lose weight to feel better I understand. Your body, your rules. Always. But know your worth is not linked to size

Callie runs the blog From the Corners of the Curve, and frequently talks to her followers about loving their bodies, a message we can totally get behind.
