In a throwback snap from 2019, the blonde beauty discusses how she was unable to love herself while seeking comfort in alcohol.

Ashley revealed how she has never been happier and full of confidence in her own skin.

Opening up in the honest post she penned: ‘I’m just going to say it. Health and happiness has nothing to do with weight loss.

‘Yes of course, there are cases where people have to lose weight for health issues and weight loss for them is difficult and they should absolutely be celebrated.

‘Just like there are cases where weight gain is important for health and that can be hard and that should also be celebrated.’

The TV star continued: ‘But what I’m talking about here is the constant lie we have shoved in our faces by the diet industry.

‘By people making money off your insecurities. Especially in January. The devil works hard, but the diet industry works harder.’

‘Shrinking yourself will not make you happier. Restricting food and using exercise to punish your body for eating is a torturous cycle that will always result in self-loathing.

‘Weight loss does not bring happiness, self love, external love, and it certainly does not equate to health.’

The mother of one went on to slam the fitness DVD craze and toxic diet culture, writing: ‘We always see photos of people looking really sad pushing their tummies out with no make up, and then their transformation is always in the same outfit, sucking in, in full hair and makeup.

‘I’ve got a few celeb friends who have done these diet DVDs and come out years later to say they were miserable and regretted it. THEY WERE MISERABLE selling your happiness.

‘And I was thinking of my own transformation in the last few years. And it is the OPPOSITE of what the diet industry wants you to believe.’

The influencer went on to discuss how she sought comfort in alcohol after a tumultuous relationship: ‘In summer 2019, I was dating someone who was completely emotionally unavailable. He ghosted me.

‘I chased him for closure. But actually, I shouldn’t have needed closure because the signs were there.

‘And if I loved myself enough, I shouldn’t have been chasing someone who didn’t want me in the first place.

‘I looked toned and I was praised a lot for my body, but I did not have self confidence, I did not love myself, I binge-drank every single night to the point of passing out (I’d be proud of myself if I didn’t drink one day of the week) – I was *not* healthy, or confident, or happy.’

Concluding her post Ashley said: ‘And now, my body has changed, but my happiness and my worth is not dependent on external validation. I respect my body, I feel confident, and I know I am worthy of love & I don’t tolerate anyone who disrespects me.’
