The star typed a caption for her fans and followers to explain how she’s come to appreciate her body over the years.
Frankel typed, “Here’s the unfortunate truth. I rarely exercise. I hate water. I prioritize sleep, but fail. I eat what I want, but never eat. I run around like crazy with endless energy.’

“In my twenties and thirties, I was dieting and exercising endlessly and being much heavier and less happy with my overall appearance,” said the TV personality.
The star then began to open up about her body and the positive path she had chosen.
“I have good skin, but I’m saggy in places and I’m thin, but by no one’s standards I don’t have a significant muscular shape. I choose balance and happiness & do the best I can. When I’m 90, I don’t want to have played any more sports, that’s for sure,” she added at the very end.
