Teri Hatcher reveals muscular physique in 'liberating' bikini pic after 55th birthday

Teri Hatcher just proved how comfortable she is in her skin, aged 55. The erstwhile Desperate Housewives star took to Instagram yesterday to show off her seriously toned physique, in a two piece.

Hatcher credited her figure to an eight-week fitness challenge, detailing in the caption that the snap was the "after photo" she submitted to the programme.

Watch as Rebel Wilson reveals her stunning weight loss:

"Exercise has become a source of well being not a means to look good naked," she wrote on Instagram. "As part of my @f45_training 8 week challenge we had to submit an after photo. So why actually post a pic of myself in a bikini? Well, this is my truth and being in this 55 year old body actually feels liberating."

"Here’s the thing. I’ve finally figured out how to be comfortable in my own skin. Maybe not every day but a lot of them. Age allows you to be clear on your purpose and cherish who and what you are grateful for," Hatcher continued. "You have enough age to see the miracle of life and enough youth to revel in that knowledge. You can be vulnerable and strong at the same time. You can forgive others and yourself. You are willing to put in the effort to reach a goal...or not."

"And that’s okay. Mostly, you know to make the most of every moment. For me that is sharing joy & positivity, knowledge I’ve gained through experience both successes and failures, and helping to lift others up. Sharing myself in a bikini (which I may or may not ever wear again) Is me Being open to others, open to life... finding glorious connection and community. No filters, no makeup, no airbrushing, no negativity. Be strong enough to be vulnerable."

Back in October, the actor opened up to the Daily Mail about how she prioritises healthy eating. "I stay motivated to make good choices, concentrating on eating food that falls into the categories of vegetables, dark leafy greens, fruits, and protein and whole grains," she told the publication.
