There are several stories out there of girls on Instagram who suffer from anorexia. One of the most common factors that contribute to girls developing this disease are the amount of “fitspiration” images uploaded on a daily basis.
These types of pictures with hashtags like #thinspo or #fitspiration are always images of very thin girls with abs that talk about their healthy diets and their workouts. Of course, these girls (or boys!) always look perfect in these pictures, so everybody wants to be and look like them. That was the case of Megan Crabbe. She saw lots of these pictures on her news feed and wanted to look like that. However, she went down the wrong path.
First of all, we have to start realizing that everybody is completely different. Some people diet for their entire life and can’t reach their desired weight because they’re bodies just don’t work like that. This girl wanted to be thin and fit, and eventually became anorexic without realizing it. When she hit 35 kgs, they had to send her to the hospital because she was really close to death.
Now Megan is fully recovered and took to Instagram to show her progress and how she got over her problem. She also warned girls and boys out there not to make the same mistake as her. Of course, she received lots of support and positive feedback, but also a few hate comments. Either way, she got over a very important disease and everyone is very proud of her.
