Las burlas y apodos que le pusieron lograron un gran cambio en la joven Meghan Gilbert, de 21 años: depesar alrededor de 200 kilogramos hoy es una modelo que luce una figura envidiable.

Meghan desarrolló un trastorno alimenticio por el exceso de comida que ingirió durante un crucero “de todo incluido” que no la limitaba.

Muslos grandes” fue el apodo hiriente que le impusieron a la chica, además de que era víctima de burlas por parte de sus compañeros.

Por el desorden que padeció, la chica llegó a comerse seis bolas de helado y cuatro raciones de lasaña. El acoso hizo que su problema se acrecentara hasta el punto de ser diagnosticada con ansiedad y depresión por lo que acabó por recluirse en casa.

La joven reconoció que tenía un problema y decidió cambiar su dieta, además de que comenzó a hacer ejercicio.

Hoy Gilbert se ha convertido en una modelo fitness y luce sin problemas pantalones cortos, además de que se convirtió en “influencer” en las redes.

Lifting is not about how I look. (And yes my posing is messed up, I have a roll over my shorts, and my legs show the chubby side.❤️) I do not workout to have a nice body. I lift because it makes me stronger. It gives me a challenge to be a stronger and better me every time I walk into the doors of the gym. Within every rep, im bettering myself. What I learn in the gym, I apply to my life. It's heavy and hurts, but the next time you do that lift, you'll be stronger and it will be easier. Your muscle has to hurt and tear in order to grow. And the same goes for your life. If times are hard, keep pushing and then things will get better, and the next time this situation comes along you'll be SO much more strong and able to handle it without as much stress. I body build because it not only helps my physical health, but my mental and spiritual health as well. Growing up, I didn't have this concept about that and it has been LIFE changing❤️

This video doesn't just show my physical change, but it shows my mental and emotional growth as well. I was so lost growing up.. I didn't realize that self love and respect was important. I would binge eat and party, filling my body with drugs and poison. Instead of turning to God, I turned to the world. I couldn't wear shorts or go to a dressing room at the mall without crying. Not because I was big but because I was lost and I hated everything about me… One week I was just tired of life, and took too many pills. I overdosed.. by the GRACE OF GOD I woke up and saw my foot tattoo "walk by faith not by sight." From that moment on I found God again, and when I found God I found LOVE!! When I started to love and respect myself, I started to eat healthy and work out. Then it just all hits.. you sweat out the toxins, so you become MENTALLY and physically stronger. You learn persistence. You learn consistency. I was lost and now I am found. Do not give up. It takes time and it also takes failure. When you fail, you get back up and try again. Rest. and try again. 😌 at the end of the video you'll see me getting washed clean of the Old Meghan, which was the best moment of my life. ❤️

A good friend of mine took my senior prom photos in high school, and when I received them on a CD, I threw it on the ground and stomped it to pieces with a river of tears flowing. Since that day, I couldn't find one prom picture. Thankfully I got them back. The girl on the left was not the Meg that I am today. I started popping pills when i was 14, and had a binge eating disorder since I was very little. That led to depression and self worth issues. People bullied me but I also bullied myself.. the drugs kept getting worse I hated myself more and more by day, until binge eating turned into anorexia. I had an overdose in 2014. No one found me. I was alone. I remember having a vision of seeing my body laying on the floor with my dog pacing back and forth at my feet. By the grace of God, I woke up. I saw the tattoo on my foot "walk by faith not by sight" and I picked up my things and left college. From the moment I woke up and saw that, I knew I needed to change. I told depression no. I told Satan no. I followed God and learned to love my body and every flaw about myself. I embraced life. I found the gym and we have been in a relationship since June of 2015… HE NEVER CHEATS😂 the gym taught me persistence, hope, consistance, and how to grow. I learned to take pain and use it to make myself stronger. It starts in your MIND! Change your mindset, pick up your feet, and get to the gym.
