Let me start with saying that anorexia sucks. It’s a nasty, and potentially life-threatening, psychological eating disorder. I won’t even pretend to understand what it’s like to live with this disease, but after knowing that it can be cured with lots of tasty food, I say let me know if you need a lunch buddy, and I’ll be there! Especially if you’re buying. Anyway, there are people who have actually died of starvation because of anorexia, so, yeah it’s that serious.
Thankfully all the people in the list below have kicked this illness in the butt and managed to get to their normal weight, regaining their life and happiness along the way. Check out before and after pics of 10 brave people who beat anorexia!
1. Margherita Barbieri is a talented young dancer. She’s made a miraculous recovery, after people at the ballet school started calling her “Thunder Thighs”.
2. This is anorexic Hannah, when her BMI dropped to 11 (yeah, ELEVEN!), and this is the beautiful and healthy Hannah now.
3. Believe it or not there only 1 year difference between these shots. So remember, that no matter how bad things look, it is always possible to find happiness again.
4. Just another example that shows anorexia is no joke.
