Skinny doesn't necessarily equal healthy.

Model Candice Huffine has been an important part of the body positive movement. And on Wednesday, she took to Instagram to point out how "skinny" shouldn't be the ultimate body compliment, yet it often is.

"How come when people say 'wow you look skinny' we say thank you?" she wrote alongside a photo of herself flaunting her stomach rolls. "In my experience, the times I've slimmed down the most have been preceded by stress, a break-up, lack of self-care, something traumatic.""How come people don't ever say 'You look so fit,' 'Wow, you are so strong,' or 'You run so fast and far now!'?!" she continued. "It's always about size, not ability and sometimes it overjoys us for someone to say we shrunk." "My stomach can jiggle and roll up when I sit for all of eternity, but if I can be healthy and strong and finish this race, then I'm complete," she wrote, quoting from her notebook. Then she continued to explain that she's "in the best shape" of her life, but still has stomach rolls and other so-called flaws that people associate with not being fit. "There's no perfect body," she said. "The one you have right now is amazing. Let it lead you to perfect days, finish lines, happy times, and fun." Preach. Huffine's message serves as an important reminder that fitness isn't always tied to looks-and that's something we can all get behind.
