She promised to change the way people think when it comes to their toxic habits and overcoming insecurities.
And it looks like Love Island’s Liberty Poole is doing just that when she posted a stunning photo of herself on Friday.
The reality star and model, 23, was seen in a plunging white dress, which showed off her ample cleavage and toned arms.
She looked happy and healthy, smiling and looking carefree as she sat on a swing.
Her 1.4 million followers flocked to the comment section to compliment her.

One simply said, “Beautiful,” and accompanied it with a fire emoji.
A second commented, “I love it, keep spreading what’s important.”
While a third said: ‘Really inspiring’.
The post comes after Liberty recently revealed she’s gained weight since appearing on the ITVBe show, but is learning to accept it.
She posted a series of images showing her weight change since the show, revealing that she felt the need to edit her photos – despite being a size 6/8 – to the point where she no longer recognized herself.
In the first image she can be seen in a black cut-out swimsuit, in the second she posted a side-by-side comparison and wrote: ‘Please appreciate this is really scary for me to post…
‘In the first picture I’m confident with my curves last week in Ibiza size 40. Slide 2 I am 8 months before going on love island. I was around size 6-8. The left photo is unedited. The photo on the right is what I posted on my instagram. I couldn’t find the exact image as this was 2 1/2 years ago.’
She continued, “It’s scary to think I didn’t see how severely I was editing my photos from getting my waist down to this size and don’t get me wrong. I love a tan, but the fact that I felt the need to edit it on my body and completely change my skin tone. I look back and think it’s so unhealthy.

“My point is that it’s really not about how skinny we are or how tall we are or what we look like, it’s about self-acceptance.”
The reality personality, who appeared in series seven, recently confessed that she was “tempted” to edit a bikini snap to “lift her natural breasts and reduce her bloat,” but then decided she wanted to show off her normal body and beauty standards.
She said, “To this day, I feel like I stand out and be a little different, but I want to encourage girls to embrace themselves and be a positive role model on social media.”
After the brave confession, Liberty has set up a mini IGTV series titled ‘Second Skin’, which allows her followers to spread love and positivity and talk about the issues they are concerned about.
