In an age when many of us hide behind filters and photo-editing to capture the ideal shot of ourselves, one woman is braving the scrutiny of the internet to promote a beautiful message.
Megan Jayne is only 22 and has already made a huge impact with her body-positive Instagram posts. Her mantra is “less worry, more eat” and she doesn’t mind showing off her curvaceous figure to help others.
Megan is a recovered anorexic who used to eat so little that she came to losing her life. She weighed less than 70 pounds at her lightest, and was told by medical professionals she had mere weeks to live. She had been battling the disease since the age of 14, and knew she couldn’t let it consume her. It took a lot of hard work to regain her life and accept her body the way it is. Now Megan has 33,000 Instagram followers who have supported her journey and see her as an inspiration.
She explains that, “Thin would never be thin enough. The eating disorder overcame me so much that I believed it was all that I was and all that I had.”
“When you stop using exercise to torture your body into weight loss submission, you might just find ways to move that you actually enjoy. Ways that feel good, without pressure, without obligation.” says Megan.
Her journey has not been easy, but she is the happiest she has ever been and we think she looks amazing! Share your thoughts about Megan’s story with us.
