Despite the rise in body positivity nowadays, there are still quite a number of people who poke fun at full-bodied individuals. Meghan Gilbert was one of those women who people made fun of because of her weight.
Feeling incredibly down, Meghan sought comfort in unhealthy foods. On her Instagram account she wrote about her journey, referring to her past self in the third person.
“She hated going shopping because every time she looked in the mirror, she would cry… So in order to feel better, she ate fries and drank a large Dr Pepper or 4.”
What’s worse is when Meghan Gilbert turned to illegal substances and hard beverages during parties. Unfortunately, such a lifestyle caused her to be sedated and abused. She also stopped eating, further damaging her already fragile health.
One day she woke up and said enough is enough. She packed her bags went off to change herself. She started eating right and working out. However, the most important change of them all was when she chose to change her mindset. She chose to love herself.
