New year, same philosophy: Lena Dunham is starting off 2016 with the same body-positive message she has been spreading since first coming on to the scene. Only difference? She’s doing it in a bikini.

The Girls show runner, 29, posted a bikini-clad selfie to her Instagram account on Sunday, accompanied by a caption that – by the looks of her fans’ reactions – is undoubtedly relatable.

“Not her natural habitat, but she’s trying her darndest!!!” the actress captioned her snapshot, referring to her journey to total body acceptance and adoption of a healthier lifestyle.

In recent years, Dunham has candidly spoken about body confidence – a topic she has regularly tackled on social media, illustrating her messages with post-workout selfies.

“My relationship with my body is constantly evolving. I’m going to be 30 next year. I had to learn, as you age, you have to move,” she told ESPN in September. “You have to move so you don’t die. You have to move so your brain doesn’t atrophy. You have to move so that you look a little bit like a person that you might want to be.”
