Amanda Byram has admitted she was way too hard on herself when it came to her weight.
The Dancing with the Stars presenter revealed that now when she looks back at old photos, she realises she wan’t fat at all – even though she felt that way at the time.
“I was going through my phone recently and I accidentally swiped backwards instead of forwards and I just spent about two hours going through all of my old photos.
“I was looking at them going ‘I can’t believe I thought I was fat back then – I was banging,” she told the Sunday World Magazine.

“Sometimes I think we waste too much of our lives thinking about what we look like instead of taking a moment to appreciate it. I’m a lot happier in my own skin now, though,” she added.
A former model, Amanda is now an avid fitness advocate, posting work outs and healthy meals online.
“If I could go back in time and tell myself anything, it would just be to stress less. I think I was pretty chilled in my twenties but in my thirties I moved to the States and I was away from home and I was hard on myself then.
“During my teens was probably the toughest because I was modelling and I was worrying about being thin. I just look back at that time and want to say ‘go easy on yourself, stop beating yourself up about every little thing’,” she said.
