Valerie Bertinelli, 63, causes a stir with ‘overweight’ swimsuit pics

“I continue to work on not suppressing or numbing my feelings with food or alcohol and here I am. I am enough,” she wrote. “Our bodies do not define who we are as human being’s. A number on the scale does not define how much love your heart can hold. 🩷Please love yourself, every single part of you. YOU ARE ENOUGH 🤍✌🏻

Bertinelli’s latest post is just another instance of body positivity. Taking to Instagram, the actress posted a throwback image of herself in a pink bikini from 2014.

In the caption, she acknowledged her weight and height, writing: “This is a 150lb body on a 5’4 frame. […] This is considered overweight.” Naturally, her post prompted an outpouring of support and admiration from her followers.

“Aging strong not skinny is where it’s at!” someone wrote.

Another added: “Oh my goodness,” while a further person commented: “I am beyond speechless.”

Someone else chimed in with: “You look better than a model.”

Reflecting on her journey, Bertinelli shared that she had a transformative moment years ago when she finally realized she was doing herself a disservice by constantly trying to shed the same 10 pounds.

This lightbulb moment eventually led her to re-evaluate her relationship with her body and self-worth. The passing of her ex-husband, Eddie Van Halen, in October 2020 further deepened this, causing her to focus on prioritizing what truly matters in life.

It’s clear that Bertinelli’s transformation isn’t just about rejecting societal beauty standards – it’s all about embracing life’s joys and finding happiness in things that extend beyond physical appearance.
