Sailor Brinkley-Cook is getting candid about her ongoing battle with body image.
The 21-year-old daughter of Christie Brinkley and Peter Cook has been struggling with what she sees in the mirror in front of that in the social media.
“I’m so f–king sick and tired of photoshop,” she wrote on Instagram alongside a series of photos of her in a bikini, making reference to lyrics of the song Kendrick Lamar hit single “Humble”.
“I’ve been so down on me recently. Crying about my cellulite, leaving the fat in my body to ruin my day, getting mad that I’m not as skinny as I once was,” she explained. “The body dysmorphia and left more of an eating disorder tendencies have been coming in strong.”
Brinkley-Cook admitted that the changes in her body have left her feeling that she lost all “control” and has forced her to compare herself to others.
“As I come of myself as a young woman my body shifts and changes by the month, the ‘control’ I felt I had once more has been completely stripped away from me,” she continued. “The hormones, the emotions, the pains of growth. I go on instagram and scroll through the photos of girls who look ‘perfect’.. the shiny skin with a bump to be seen, a small waist, and thighs that look like chopsticks. And I compare myself, as if someone in a app on my phone looks should directly correlate to how I feel about my body?”
The model said she was now ignoring what she sees online and instead has been focusing on what she’s grateful for his strength and his health.
“What I have learned is that I encounter each day. I go to the gym 6 times a week. I feed my body with beautiful foods,” she explained. “I’m so f–king LUCKY to have two legs and a healthy body that takes me through life.
“I’m so tired of thinking about all that makes ME is something to be ashamed of.”
Brinkley-Cook, joked then appears a list of all your so-called faults, because if you are not on Instagram that is not real.
“As well as the majority of 21st century girls were going to do, I’m going to put this out there on instagram,” he joked. “Declaring that I have cellulite, and a stomach that does not always look ‘nice’ (whatever the f–k that means) and I am 100% imperfect human. And I’m proud as hell of my body!
“If you’re out there hating on yourself, stop!! Thank you to yourself. You’re body is so magical. That is all. Have a good day.”
