My date said I was ‘too fat’ so I proudly showed off my 'gran bod' on the internet | The Sun

MODERN dating is difficult to say the least — and even more complex for older women.

One TikTok user and grandma shared her dating nightmare of being body-shamed— and the resilient stand she took to reclaim her power.

Digital creator @Recover_your_power took to TikTok to share her empowering lesson in body positivity.

"So my date said I'm too fat," she started.

"I know I have 25 pounds to lose," she noted.

"But … can we normalize Grandma Bods?" she asked.

She then turned the camera to her amazing hour-glass figure, wearing a teeny-tiny black bikini.

TikTok users rushed to the comments with confusion, support, and most importantly, praise for the grandma's figure.

One user wrote: "I don’t see where there is 25 lbs to lose?? You are perfect."

Another agreed: "You’re gorgeous! The only thing you need is a different date!"

In her follow-up TikTok, she explained what motivated her to create this video.

"I was out by the pool and I was feeling really blue about my weight," she said.

"I did some self-talk — and I said 'screw it'" she explained.

"I don't feel too bad for a grandma, and I just shot the damn video and then I posted it," she said.

"It was the hardest thing I've ever done," she said.

"Just because somebody doesn't fit the mold of what you think they should for body positivity doesn't mean that they don't feel bad about how they look," she noted.

"I wasn't feeling 100% at all about how I looked — and I'm still not," she explained.

"But those compliments did help," she said. "I wasn't fishing for compliments, I was trying to say that whatever you look like, be happy in your body."

"I guess I was trying to convince myself to be happy in mine," she said.

"If I was looking for clout, or compliments, I probably would have done a still shot," she clarified. "And Photoshopped the hell out of it."

"No matter what size you are, no matter what age you are, love yourself enough to feel good in your own skin," she concluded.

TikTok users chimed in with even more support.
