Former Anorexic Posts Instagram Photos Of Her ‘Flab’

November 6, 2015

A former anorexic who nearly died when her weight plummeted to just five stone has started posting photos of her new size 14 body – and she says she’s proud of her tummy flab.

Megan Crabbe, 22, told BBC Radio 5 live that photos of stick-thin models led her to diet obsessively as a teenager, and aged 15 she was hospitalised and close to death.

But she’s now beaten the disease, and wants to encourage other women to realise that “your worth does not depend on your weight”. She’s collected 40,000 followers on Instagram by posting images of her new, healthier, fuller figure, complete with stomach rolls and cellulite.

Megan hopes that her @bodyposipanda account will help combat the “Fitspiration” craze on social media which, based on her own experience, she says promotes images of unnaturally thin bodies that are both unrealistic and dangerous.
