The teen described the journey as “hell,” explaining she also went to the gym, counted calories, stopped snacking and cut out soda. Moreover, Ariana said she did intermittent fasting and followed a calorie deficit. “So it is a process. It takes time,” she stated.
As difficult as it was, Ariana expressed she’s happy that she persevered, saying, “It was not easy. But it was the best thing I ever did for myself and my body… I’m so happy with myself. I’ve never felt so beautiful.”
And while it’s hard work, Ariana told her followers, “believe in yourself. Do it for you. You got this s–t!” As for the critics, the 19 year old advised, “Stop comment [sic] on peoples bodies and worry about yourself.”
