Just when we thought Kelly Clarkson couldn’t get any more relatable! The American Idol alum took to Twitter to open up about gaining weight during the holidays, and although she said that her pants have become very tight, she admitted that it was “so worth it” in the end. Kelly even made a funny joke about all of the people who have managed to shed a few pounds during the past couple of weeks.

“To the person that lost weight over the holidays…. Don’t worry, I found it and I will get it back to you starting January 1st #TightPants #ButSoWorthIt,” the 36-year-old said on the social media platform.

Over the years, Kelly has grown to become very open and honest about her weight to fans. After she revealed that she has been suffering from a thyroid condition, Kelly confessed in a previous interview with Extra that she simply had to change her diet to shed a few pounds and also stay in good health.

“I literally read this book, and I did it for this autoimmune disease that I had,” she explained. “And now all my levels are back up. I’m not on medicine anymore because of this book, it’s called The Plant Paradox [by Steven R. Gundry, MD].”

Though Kelly managed to lose some weight, she admitted that it hasn’t made her feel better about herself because she’s always loved herself the way that she was. “It’s when I’m fat that I’m happy. People think, ‘Oh, there’s something wrong with her. She’s putting on weight,'” Kelly said in a previous interview with Redbook. “‘I’m like, ‘Oh, no! I’m sorry, but that represents happiness in my emotional world.’ For me, when I’m skinny is usually when I’m not doing well.”
