Joven que sufrió bullying en su adolescencia ahora sorprende al ser modelo fitness
Ese oscuro periodo quedó atrás, y la mujer ha sorprendido a todos al mostrar el increíble cambio que logró en su cuerpo.
En plena etapa escolar, Meghan Gilbert lo pasó muy mal. Y es que la joven que ahora tiene 21 años, soportó brutales burlas de sus compañeros por su peso, siendo víctima de bullying durante mucho tiempo.
Pero ese oscuro periodo quedó atrás, y la mujer ha sorprendido a todos al mostrar el increíble cambio que logró en su cuerpo, llevándola incluso a ser modelo fitness. “Odiaba mi cuerpo y todo sobre mí, por eso seguía comiendo porque llegó un momento que ya nada me importaba“, sostuvo a Mirror.
Pero no todo fue fácil, ya que tuvo que aprender a comer y a ordenarse. “Al principio fue difícil, pero sabía que tenía que hacerlo. Creo que los tiempos difíciles te hacen más fuertes. Aprendí a comer bien y saludable, ahora me encanta hacer ejercicios”, precisó.
W H A T I S T H E F I R S T S T E P // I can’t begin to explain how important this answer is.. I spent so much time trying to do workouts and trying diets, starving myself, fake magic pills, metabolism medicine. Nothing worked. I remember the feeling I had at this wedding on the left. I was so uncomfortable and hated every single thing about my body and myself. I had no confidence or self respect or love. When I started my REAL weight loss journey, I had a near overdose which was life changing. I knew I needed to walk by faith and not by sight.. and that included learning to love and respect myself. I refused to put a chemical in my body, and started teaching myself what kind of nutrients my body needs. I started giving my body exercise. Once I STARTED to eat again, my metabolism went crazy! But, what kept me going is loving myself. Make the change today and learn to love you for however you look. Be confident and be bold. Love every flaw. You are beautifully and wonderfully made. When you start to love yourself, you’ll start to care more and more about the foods and chemicals you put into your body. Trust me, loving yourself is the best feeling in the world.
The little girl on the left grew up living a dark life. She hated going shopping because everytime she looked in the mirror, she would cry and claim that the lighting made her look fatter. So in order to feel better, she ate fries and drank a large Dr Pepper or 4. Little meghan wouldn’t wear shorts or tanks even in 105 degree Texas heat, because she was so self conscious. Deep down, she wanted more than anything to love herself, but she didn’t know how.. so she started to pop pills and party. She lost all faith and all love. She was dancing with the devil, and ended up being roofied and raped. From then on, she went on a black out spree. She didn’t eat and trained her brain to hate food, until the day she overdosed. When I woke up, I saw the tattoo on my foot “walk by faith, not by sight”, picked up my stuff, left college, and went through healing. The first step was learning how to love again, starting with loving myself. I trained myself to eat, which cannabis helped greatly with. I started by go to the park on walks and runs,doing body weight exercises. I got a trainer, and started to be confident. Even the days I was down, I would push myself. DEPRESSION WILL NOT DEFEAT ME!! Change your mindset. Love is the GREATEST. Jesus commandment to us was LOVE. So start there. LOVE yourself, LOVE others, and LOVE your creator. 💚 80 lbs down 🙏🏼 props to @justinclemons for this beautiful photo taken in dallas at White Rock lake 😻
