In doing so, she uploaded a pretty damn nude photo on her Instagram...
"I spent so many years loving my body but thinking it wasn't lovable by others- its sole purpose was to be fodder for jokes. I performed the insult so no one else could. I don't regret any of it- that's my art and that was my truth," she began in her caption.
"But now, at age 31, having been through hell and back with my health and other people's perceptions of my physicality, I feel deeply comfortable with the idea that this pear-shaped pot of honey is equally good for making people laugh.
"Love it all."
GO GURL! Her comments are basically filled with praise, especially by other girls who can relate to how Lena is feeling.
"Thanks Lena for being so inspiring," one of her followers wrote, "and for helping me and all the girls out there to be, day by day, more confident and positive about our bodies."
Another person told her "Your body and your mind are beautiful, the both of them. Keep writing intelligent, witty and socially critical pieces. You are a true inspiration."
"Glad you're loving the skin you're in," yet another wrote. "You're giving women permission to do the same and make friends with their own bodies."
