Tess Holliday hopes anorexia revelation helps others
Holliday just recently went public with a medical diagnosis of anorexia she stated she has actually gotten from an expert.
“I’ve had a lot of messages from folks that are anorexic that are livid and angry because they feel like I’m lying,” she stated. “I am plus size, but advocating for diversity and larger bodies, and so I think for people hearing me say I’m anorexic was really jarring and hard and confusing.”
However Holliday states she has had an eating condition for several years.
Previously this month she tweeted “I’m anorexic & in recovery. I’m not ashamed to say it out loud anymore.”
“I’m the result of a culture that celebrates thinness & equates that to worth, but I get to write my own narrative now,” she composed. “I’m finally able to care for a body that I’ve punished my entire life & I am finally free.”
She informed “GMA” that she’s enthusiastic that sharing her story will assist others.
“I actually feel like I can take on the things that life is throwing my way and I have been happier in the last six months, through my recovery than I’ve been in my entire life,” Holliday stated. “I feel whole. I feel at peace. I really feel in my power.”
