Rather than letting the body shamers get away with their negativity, however, Daphne clapped back with a second post, in which she shared an open and honest message about body positivity.

"I feel safe posting pics like this for all of you because I get how hard it is to feel good in our skin — whether we're trying to lose or gain weight, whether we've had babies or not. We are under constant scrutiny," she wrote.

The mother of two admitted that she doesn't feel perfect and she still has yet to reach some of her goals — but "progress is everything," she wrote, and we have to start from a place of positivity to get there.

She continued:

This is a space for positivity and smart strategies and results, but most importantly, it is a place for celebration and FUN. I love that you guys shut down the obvious trolls that show up on here every now and then because they seriously have no other place or way to feel heard. I try not to give them too much thought, but know that I appreciate every single one of you and you make me smile and feel good every day. I hope I can do the same for you.

We're feeling better about our bodies already. Thanks, Daphne!
