You know what you shouldn’t do? Comment on strangers’ bodies — at the gym or anywhere else. After being fat-shamed while working out, one fitness blogger took to Instagram to call out the haters.

In her Instagram post, Julie Ana Kim says a man came up to her at the gym to tell her how brave she was for working out “at her size.”

He proceeded to offer up a wealth of backhanded compliments, including motioning with his hands “how big I was while saying he himself couldn’t imagine coming to the gym while being that big.”

Kim says she’d already had a trying week where she felt down on herself, and the stranger’s comments did nothing to improve her self-esteem.

Kim, who has lost more than 75 pounds through a series of healthy lifestyle changes, says this kind of judgment is what prevents people from starting healthy fitness journeys in the first place.

Kim ended her post with a message of positivity and determination.

Get it, girl!
