31 year-old glamour-model-turned-fitness fanatic Gemma Atkinson transformed her body from slim and super busty to ultra fit and toned. And her transformation didn’t go unnoticed.
Her message to her haters:
‘People say to me “Real women have curves.” Well I don’t – I am straight up and down. It’s mostly men actually, they say women shouldn’t have muscles. But that’s like me saying to a man that unless they look like Arnold Schwarzenegger, they’re not a man, which isn’t right. I just ignore all the trolls. I have changed my body and they clearly want to as well. Sadly, they don’t have the same drive and willpower so they put me down. It’s so petty. For a stranger to have such a negative opinion on YOUR body means they are 1000% unhappy with their own.’
On her change:
‘Over the years I have grown to love the way I look,’ she explained. ‘And my figure has become a lot more muscular as a result of regular gym workouts and yoga. I have increased my muscle mass and reduced my body fat so I look bigger now than before. I’m certainly heavier, but I love it – I feel strong.’
