Sam Smith shared a shirtless photo with a powerful message behind it.
The singer, who identifies as gender non-binary, opened up about their “struggle with their weight every day,” which becomes more glaring during the festive period, when they usually gain weight.
Coupled with their love for mince pies and trimmings, putting on a few pounds could “trigger tricky body issues” when it comes to body positivity and acceptance, the singer addressed.
“Let’s make sure we remind our bodies during this time that no matter what weight we are, we deserve love and acceptance,” Smith wrote in their post to remind themselves and their fans.
“Look in the mirror and shower that reflection with Christmas kindness,” they added. “It’s an everyday struggle. You aren’t alone.”
Many fans related to Smith’s message, applauding them for being honest with their body. “You are beautiful and valid regardless of your size, and thank you for sharing this,” Tess Holliday commented. “So beautifully written,” Parson James responded.

Christmas time is upon us. This time of the year always triggers tricky body issues with me. I love me some mince pies and all the trimmings, and I always find I gain a bit of weight during this time. I’m writing this out to you all, but also writing this for myself. Let’s make sure we remind our bodies during this time that no matter what weight we are, we are deserving of love and acceptance. Let’s love our fluctuating bodies. Look in that mirror and shower that reflection with Christmas kindness. Be super soft. It’s an everyday struggle for me. You aren’t alone xx
