In the 'deleted' photo, Sophie was seen showing off her natural tum as she relaxed and leaned forward.
This was compared to a 'posted' photo where she posed with a lengthened frame to give herself a flatter stomach.
Captioning the post, Sophie wrote: "Can we start again? It took me years to rewire my brain and learn to love myself.
"I didn’t wake up one day filled with self confidence. I woke up one day and realised that the work I had been doing tirelessly on being kinder to myself, was working. I woke up one day and realised almost two months had passed since the last time I was cruel to myself."
She added: "You are not going to wake up tomorrow and love yourself. There is no secret. There is no shortcut.
"It’s a commitment to yourself that today is the day you start to be a little kinder. Today is the day you start to replace nasty soul destroying thoughts with gratitude. It’s a commitment that you will stop pulling yourself apart in the mirror and instead you will say thank you.
"It’s a commitment that you want to rebuild your relationship with yourself. It’s a commitment that the war within you ends now."
Fans were loving the honest post – and they took to the comments section to praise her.
One told her: "Needed to see and read this today!! Thank you for being such an amazing role model."
"You are incredible, you look amazing," added another.
"I love you for this," added a third.
The post comes after Sophie showed off her 'weight gain' back in March after she told fans she's 'more than just a waistline measurement'.
