She also, wrote an article on the same for the popular, -d.vice.com. Where she shared all the details of her journey. She quoted,
” Around 20, I started to become aware of my body. I noticed that my natural form was not like most of the other girls who were modelling. I had a wider waistline and fuller hips. I decided that I needed to change that and obtain that perfect figure so that I could really make something out of this career. It was now or never. I started doing the workouts and diets that all the other girls had been doing all along. Unfortunately, the only diet that ever got me close to a 34″ hip was limiting my daily intake of calories to 500 a day. Seeing myself drop nearly 20lbs in just two weeks gave me a rush.
But I was miserable. Full of mood changes. I was constantly on edge and shaky, my face sunk heavily, I had black circles under my eyes. I was so hungry that an almond tasted as good as a fresh buttery croissant. Like all of my diet fads, it didn’t last long. I had an incident one night, where I fainted cooking myself one of my “sorry excuse for a meal” meals. I was scared and stopped the diet right then and there. Nothing was worth this much stress to my body.”
That’s not it. She came out clean about her her journey, to her healthy self. She wrote, ”
” I started sharing photos of myself and my body on Instagram from the moment I decided to stop dieting. I felt inspired to share with whatever followers I had, that sometimes the best body for you is not the same as the one society tells you you need — but that does not mean it’s not beautiful. I am now what is called a plus size model. This can be an offensive label to many people, but at the end of the day, I know my worth. I’m proud and happy to be the size that I am, and I understand how the industry works, so I don’t get offended by such things.”
Dear Liza, you are tremendously beautiful, Inside & Out. We wish more power to you always x
