Meghan Gilbert, 21 ans, est devenue mannequin instagram.

Meghan Gilbert a, durant toute sa jeunesse été la victime de railleries à l'école. En cause ? Son poids. En effet, celle-ci a, à un moment, pesé près de 100 kilos. Malade, dépressive, elle est réfugie ainsi dans la nourriture jusqu'au jour ou celle-ci réussie à s'en sortir. Après une perte de poids express dû à un régime et beaucoup de sport, Meghan commence à reprendre confiance en elle et s'affiche de fait sur le net. Résultat ? 65.000 followers plus tard, la jeune femme est une véritable star d'instagram : "à l'époque, je me droguais et sortais tout le temps. Je voulais tout oublier et le lendemain, je me réveillais la tête à l'envers, encore plus triste que le jour d'avant. Mais aujourd'hui, tout ça est terminé" aime-t-elle à raconter. Un bel exemple.

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. 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. I loved myself. I loved the gym. I loved the hardship. I loved the pain and soreness. I loved the people around me. And most of all, I loved God. When you first start to lift weights and someone pushes you to go harder, most the time you say no I can't do that much! But then you try, and you get one Rep out. You think you can't do it, but in reality you can. It hurts. You build muscle by tearing it down... Same thing goes in life. You gain strength through hardship. You will always have gloomy times in your life, and what matters most is your mindset. Saying no, I can't do it and not trying. Or saying yes, I can do it. I will try. I won't give up, no matter how hard it is or how much it hurts. I trust You, God. After the pain and trials, you end up stronger. I started at a 5lb dumbell, and now I'm lifting a 25lb. It hurt when I first lifted that 5.. so bad. But I kept on going. To 10. It hurt. To 15. It hurt. The same goes for life. Trials are like God's gym. Building you up to prepare for what is to come next. ❤️ 80 lbs downs plus a gained mindset of strength and endurance. Clean for 2 years and one month �xÊ�xÊ�xÊ�xÊ�xÊ�x"R�xÈ�x"R�xÈ�x"R�xÈ�x"R�xÈ
