Meghan Gilbert, from Dallas, Texas, was an ugly duckling in her class due to her plump figure and overweight.
Besides neverending bullying, she ballooned to a whopping 200lbs (15st) because of an eating disorder.
To add, being in horrible relationships with her classmates she was soon diagnosed with anxiety and depression.
This is how Meghan herself describes her inner and outer world in the caption to a side-by-side photo posted on Instagram: “The girl on the left was 200 lbs of depression, anxiety, and sin. I was addicted to drugs, and I partied every night. I woke up in the morning wanting to forget that I had to wake up this morning.. my life was just..sad.”
“I hated every part of my body and being until I took one too many pills and sipped one too many drinks, waking up after 36 hours of straight sleep. Well, could be longer.”
Hopefully, 21-year-old managed to overcome her addiction to turn her life on the right pass, dropping to 137lbs 9st 11lbs.
“When I woke up from my overdose, I saw my tattoo ‘walk by faith, not by sight’ and that’s when I knew I wasn’t doing life right. The Bible PREACHES LOVE! That’s Jesus’s commandment. So that’s where I started.”
