Amy Duggar has never been one to follow blindly.
Even before the rest of the world realized that her family is more corrupt than the Mansons and the Sopranos combined, Amy questioned authority and refused to go along with the more asinine rules imposed by her powerful Uncle Jim Bob.
This was perhaps most evident in her rejection of the infamous Duggar dress code.
The code, as you’re probably aware, was one of Jim Bob’s most repugnant attempts to control the girls and women in his life.
Perhaps that’s why Amy rejected it from the outset.
These days, Amy has completely severed ties with the more fundamentalist members of her extended family.
We guess that’s an easy decision to make when the fundies are also the ones who defended and enabled a convicted child molester.
Anyway, now that she’s completely free from her uncle’s oppressive influence, Amy is truly living her best life.
She’s wearing what she wants and posting the pics of her outfits for the whole world to see.
When you look at the photo below, it might seem unremarkable at first.
But it’s important to bear in mind that this is a woman who hails from a family in which women aren’t even permitted to bare their shoulders or knees.
And here she is rocking a form-fitting tank top in front of her massive TikTok following!
Fans, of course, loved the look, and it wasn’t the only time this week that Amy received major praise on social media.
The mother of one also posted an Instagram Story in which she flaunted her recent weight loss.
“Let me just tell you a story real quick. I’m gonna make this as real as possible,” Amy explained.
“I had this pair of jeans in my closet before I even had [son] Dax – Before I was even pregnant – and I thought to myself, ‘I can’t wear them, but I love them.’ I think I got them for, like, $10, and I was like, ‘That’s it.’
“‘I’m gonna get them, and they’re my incentive jeans, and I’m just gonna try every once in a while to see if I can wear them,’” she continued.
“Y’all, I tried them on today for going to dinner, and they fit, and I’m not even kidding. Like, there’s room. Like I can live in them. You know? Like, live. And I’m not hurting,” Amy went on.
“I feel like I really tried to work out and eat high protein, and the work is really paying off.”
She concluded with the message:
“Don’t give up.”
That sentiment applies both to losing weight and to breaking free from your cultish family!
“Yay, you go, girl. Absolutely love a clothes boost. I call them my no scales victories,” one fan commented, according to UK tabloid The Sun.
“You look beautiful,” another person wrote.
“Congratulations. You are beautiful always,” a third chimed in.
Even Amy’s cousin Jessa — who’s still fiercely loyal to her parents — offered up some praise, writing, “I love it! Go, Amy!”
Yes, it seems that Jessa is still paying close attention to her rebellious cousin’s social media presence.
Maybe there’s hope for her liberation yet!
