Writing on her Facebook page Omielan said: "Thanks so much for sharing my video. No blogs or famous people have shared it, it's just gone viral from you lot tagging your friends and sharing. I think it's really indicative of how hungry we are for positive body images. I've had amazing messages from people who have struggled with this. I'm so glad people have taken to it. We need more of this feel good shit please, tired of this self loathing."
