Jamie Otis reacts to body-shamers

Jamie Otis has called out her body shamers in the past, and her recent post did just that. 

Taking to Instagram, Jamie shared a fun video of her family of four in Arkansas. 

Jamie’s lengthy caption began, EDIT:I didn’t wanna “go there” w this on here but since someone DM’d me to “call me out”? – no, I wasn’t 100% “body confident” here. And yes, I have been struggling a bit with my image. I’m not ashamed to say that publicly. I mean, if you grow up hearing skinny is pretty the minute you gain weight you feel less beautiful.”

The former MAFS unfiltered host continued by writing, “This type of mentality isn’t going to change over night for me or for anyone. Just because I post a picture of myself without mentioning anything doesn’t mean I’m avoiding it or “lying” ….I’ve always been super honest about this.? Anyway, figured I’d put the proof in the pudding by “publicly” sharing this.?”

To make her followers feel less alone, Jamie shared how she can relate and called out ‘body issue demons.’ 

Jamie wrote, “If you’re someone who deals with body issue demons (and people who constantly wanna “call you out” about your image – I FEEL for you! ❤️❤️❤️”

I still think it turned out pretty good though!❤️We prop the phone up and let the video run then screenshot the best shot – it isn’t the best quality but heyyyyy, you’ll get it!?”

Jamie added, “Arkansas, you’ve been so beautiful!!!”
