A BIG DEAL! –
Nov. 12, 2023 – The office manager revealed: ‘Growing up, I wasn’t always on the heavier side, but things started changing when I hit middle school. I was the curviest among my friends, and that stirred up some self-doubt.’
‘My relationship with food has always been complicated. I turn to it for comfort and to combat boredom. While I’ve come a long way in my journey with food, there’s still room for improvement,’ Jilly explained.
Her path to becoming an influencer began somewhat unexpectedly in January 2020.
‘At that time, my Instagram account was small, mostly filled with friends from school and online buddies.
‘Then, on a whim, I decided to share a series of photos with a heartfelt caption embracing body positivity, which took off like wildfire.
‘The experience was incredibly liberating, and it felt like I had unshackled myself.
‘It was a turning point, inspiring me to revamp my entire account to focus on the empowering themes of body positivity and neutrality.’
Jilly’s main message now radiates empowerment with the belief that being ‘fat and sexy’ is a powerful declaration.
