America Ferrera Writes Powerful Message About Embracing Her Body: 'Thank You for 33 Years of Standing With Me'

19 April 2017 3:43 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

America Ferrera is learning to love herself more than ever.

The Superstore actress turned 33 on Tuesday, and Instagrammed a cute picture of her and two gal-pals taking a SoulCycle class. Ferrera admitted she hasn't always been kind to herself when it comes to her body, but says that that's changing with age.

"At 33, I finally understand that my body is a miracle!" she wrote. "After too many years of criticizing, punishing, depriving, or neglecting my body for what it isn't, I'm attempting to love it unapologetically as it is! Thank you body for 33 years of standing with me even when I wasn't on your side. I promise from here on out to stand by you and face down all the criticism and bulls**t distractions (inner & outer), so that we can move beyond beautiful and get to the business of living! Thank you to these amazing humans and so many more who have inspired me to celebrate »
