Los Angeles, Dec 22 (IANS) Actress Jameela Jamil recently shared a 10-year-old picture, recalling her struggles with eating disorder.
“This was a sad day 10 years ago. I didn’t want to go to the event because I was convinced that I was ‘too fat’ and that I would be publicly fat shamed the next day. I was so weak, I only managed to stay for 10 mins. Eating disorders/dysmorphia are so wild. I missed my teens/20s,” she wrote on social media along with an image.
In the photograph, she is posing in a form-fitting black dress and heels.
Jamil often speaks publicly about her experience with an eating disorder as a teenager and society’s impact on people’s relationship with food and their bodies, reports eonline.com.
Since then she has launched the body neutrality campaign, I Weigh.
