I know we're definitely our own worst critics when it comes to how we look, but would you believe Kailyn Lowry fat-shamed herself after seeing a clip of the new episode of Teen Mom 2 season 5B?
Yep. She actually went so far as to give herself a negative shout-out on Twitter, basically admitting to the world that she isn't the least bit happy with how she looked after having baby Lincoln. And even though most new moms struggle with trying to lose the baby weight, it just seems like Kail is being a tad bit hard on herself.
Watched the clip of tonight's episode and all I can think is that I'm so glad I started workin out. Ya girl has been big for too long. Haha— Kail Lowry-Marroquin (@KailLowry) July 23, 2014
Aww! Ok, so I totally get where she's coming from, especially since she wasn't feeling confident when the episodes were filmed. But she had just had a baby, for crying out loud -- so she needs to cut herself a little slack! Don't you feel kind of bad for her, even though she's the one insulting her own appearance?
And then there's the whole "camera adds 10 pounds" thing. That's totally legit ... so Kailyn really doesn't look half as bad as she thinks she does.

But still, I guess we can all identify with how much our body image tends to change after we commit to hitting the gym and adopting a healthy lifestyle. We can't blame Kailyn for being proud of the results of her hard work and dedication. And if seeing herself on-screen before she decided to get into a good exercise routine helps keep her motivated to continue it? More power to her.
Do you think Kailyn is being too tough on herself?
