Let’s be real: Most of us had a first-hand experience with weight fluctuation, especially during stay-at-home orders. But instead of being hard on ourselves for a rising number on the scale, we should normalize the fact that our weight fluctuates throughout our life—and Camila Cabello agrees.

In a recent episode of The Late Show with James Corden, the singer verbalized her feelings about a recent incident where she was unknowingly photographed. “I had my belly out, I didn’t know anybody was taking pictures of me,” she says, explaining that the photos initially sparked a bout of anxiety about having her stomach exposed. But, after some time passed, the 24-year-old decided to change her mindset.

“I was like, you know what, this is normal,” she says on the show. “It’s like, my weight is gonna go up and down. Also we have these crazy beauty standards from freakin’ Instagram of people that are photoshopped or if they’re not photoshopped, it’s not every woman’s body. And I was just like, you know let me get on TikTok and just talk about this.”

In the viral video she posted—it currently has 4.7 million likes—Cabello says, “I was just running in the park, minding my own business, trying to be fit, trying to keep it healthy and I’m wearing a top that shows my belly and I wasn’t tucking it in ’cause I was running and existing like a normal person that doesn’t tuck it in all the time…But then I reminded myself that being at war with your body is so last season. I am grateful for this body that lets me do what I need to do.”

Although Cabello is normalizing weight fluctuation, it’s evident that she likes to keep her body moving to stay healthy. A few of her favorite workouts: Dancing and lifting weights with her personal trainer Jenna Willis. Based on Camila’s exercise routine and healthy mindset, the star is developing a healthy relationship with her body.
