Sadie Robertson's Body Image Message Goes Viral, Strikes Chord on Twitter

Sadie Robertson, the 17-year-old whose family stars in the A&E series "Duck Dynasty," struck a chord on social media last week with a make-up free YouTube video promoting a positive body image message.

The seven-minute video has been viewed more than 2.5 million times since it was posted on March 26. In the clip Robertson, who also appeared on last season of ABC's "Dancing With the Stars," urged her viewers to "just be you and live original."

"The reality is, I struggle with comparing myself to other people, I struggle with worry, and I'm really hard on myself," Robertson says in the video, according to the Christian Post.

Robertson went on to discuss her own flaws and struggles as a teen in relating to her fans and followers.

"I want to tell you the reality of things: I struggle with jealousy," the teen says. "And I struggle with comparing myself to other people. "I may be this 'celebrity status' or whatever, but I'm just like every single one of you."

"I am 5-foot-7, I weigh 122 pounds, I wear a size 26 in jeans, a small or a medium top . . . I wear a size 2 in a dress, and I eat all the time. I'm not toned. I don't have abs."

Robertson pointed to her book "Live Original: How the Duck Commander Teen Keeps It Real and Stays True to Her Values" as a way to get her followers to love themselves.

The popularity of the video earned Robertson an invitation to "Good Morning America" on Monday.

"I mean, I just got out of the shower one day and I was in my pajamas laying in bed and I was kind of preaching to myself," she said on the morning show.

Robertson said she had second thoughts about actually posting the clip but her younger sister Bella talked her into it.

"I posted it and next thing I know, I'm on 'Good Morning America' talking about it," she said.

Robertson's message struck a chord with viewers who later praised her on social media.
