Tiffany Brien, a 26-year-old former beauty queen, shared a photo of her very bloated stomach to let you know that sometimes she isn't skinny. Brien's side-by-side photos compare her stomach before going to bed and upon waking. In the photo on the left, Miss Northern Ireland 2012 is carrying around a "food baby" that was also the result of hormones and lack of sleep, as she explained on Facebook. (While she doesn't name this food baby, it has a real "David" vibe.) On the right, Brien is posing at that time when all humans look their best: upon waking up (and probably after a serious BM).

Reality check....

No I'm not 6 months pregnant. It's just my food baby...These two photos are 12 hours apart, left before bed and right when I woke up.... I know right!!

We are not all what we seem on social media. I thought I would share a bad day with you to show you nobody is "perfect" and it is ok to have an off day where your body just decides to not play ball. Don't worry girls, it happens to the best of us, all part and parcel of being a female! It is a delightful cocktail of lack of sleep, stress, hormones and food intolerances. A mixture for a whole lotta bloat.

To make matters worse it seems to happen at incredibly inconvenient times... On a evening out for dinner in a lovely tight dress. I could be half way into my main course and I suddenly feel uncomfortable and now really unattractive with a big bloated belly!
