Nelson is open about her struggles with self-acceptance and her body. However, she wrote in a revealing Instagram post that she is working on doing so. "I'll never sit here and preach and say I love my body, because I don't, but I'm slowly starting to just accept it for what it is," Nelson wrote. "Sometimes I'm gonna put on weight, and sometimes I'm gonna go to the gym and lose it, either way girlies, one day we will be really old and look back at our pics and think 'god I was actually banging, why did I worry so much.' Anyway I'm rambling on now, but you're all beautiful in your own ways, and I hope you all know that."
