Most people will post a before-and-after picture after they've lost weight, but writer and actor Lena Dunham is celebrating body positivity by sharing these pictures that shows her 24-pound weight gain.

Lena said she was "complimented all day and propositioned by men and on the cover of a tabloid about diets that work". She added that she was also "sick in the tissue and in the head and subsisting only on small amounts of sugar, tons of caffeine and a purse pharmacy".

She continued, "Even this OG body positivity warrior sometimes looks at the left picture longingly, until I remember the impossible pain that brought me there and onto my proverbial knees".

Lena Dunham is heavier and a whole lot happier than she was a year-and-a-half ago.

"Throughout my teens I was told, in no uncertain terms, that I was fucking amusing looking", she wrote of herself previous year. "As I type I can feel my back fat rolling up under my shoulder blades".

"Truly a wonderful woman you!" In words, deeds, humour, intelligence, person, style and being.

During an appearance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" in March of a year ago, Dunham said she was "frustrated" by the rampant body shaming in Hollywood, especially for women.

The rundown included "anxiety disorder and resultant constant nausea", "an election that reveals the truth depths of American misogyny", and "a quiet rage that replaces need for food with need for revenge".

"I don't want to be on this cover cuz it's diametrically opposed to everything I've fought my whole career for and it's not a compliment to me because it's not an achievement". It's not explicit, but it's possible that the "pain" of being "sick in the tissue" that Dunham mentions probably refers to her condition, which she took an extreme step to deal with by having her uterus removed in February.
