Lena Dunham is finding out that a lot of weight can come with losing a few pounds. The actress/Girls creator is well known for her body-positive approach to living, but caught some flak after she started an exercise program to help with chronic pain related to her endometriosis and slimmed down a bit. That slimmer frame has apparently landed her on an Us Weekly cover next to the headline "20 Diet Tips Stars Are Using," with "Lena / How She Gets Motivated" slapped over her photo. And so Dunham early Monday offered "20 slimdown diet tips!" of her own on Instagram. Among them:

  • "abdominal adhesions pinning ovary below uterus *" (* means pre-existing condition)
  • "marching your a-- off"
  • "having to switch from Uber to Lyft (lots of calories burned trying to understand a new app, then even more trying to understand if the conflict was resolved)"
  • "having your phone number leaked and violent images texted to your phone by randos under names like VERYFATCHUCKYBOY@creepz.com"
  • "I have no tips I give no tips 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 thanx"
"Amen to that," is Mashable's take. Based on her post's likes, more than 100,000 people agree. Dunham isn't the only celeb making positive social-media waves in recent days... (More Lena Dunham stories.)
