Tess Holliday opens up on eating disorder: ‘I’m anorexic and in recovery’

OHMYGOSSIP — Tess Holliday has revealed she is “anorexic and in recovery”.
The 35-year-old model has opened up about her battle with an eating disorder, as she says she has been impacted by a “culture that celebrates thinness and equates it to worth”.
Posting on Twitter, Tess wrote: “I’m anorexic and in recovery. I’m not ashamed to say it out loud anymore. I’m the result of a culture that celebrates thinness and equates that to worth, but I get to write my own narrative now. I’m finally able to care for a body that I’ve punished my entire life and I am finally free.”
The plus-sized beauty said she decided to speak out about her eating disorder after multiple comments about her weight.
She wrote on Instagram: “To everyone that keeps saying “you’re looking healthy lately” or “You are losing weight, keep it up!” Stop.
“Don’t. Comment. On. My. Weight. Or. Perceived. Health. Keep. It. To. Yourself. Thanks
“Yes, I’ve lost weight — I’m healing from an eating disorder & feeding my body regularly for the first time in my entire life. When you equate weight loss with “health” & place value & worth on someone’s size, you are basically saying that we are more valuable now because we are smaller & perpetuating diet culture… & that’s corny as hell. NOT here for it. (sic)”
Tess went on to say she finds comments about her body “triggering”, and noted that the negativity she receives also impacts other people reading her social media comments.
She added: “For folks like me that are trying to reframe our relationships with our bodies & heal, hearing comments about weight is triggering as hell. It sets us back in our progress — and when people working on themselves see you commenting to me that way, it hurts THEM, not just me. I can take it (I shouldn’t have to, but I can) but they didn’t ask for that trauma, ok? If you can’t tell someone they look nice without making it about their size, then baby, please don’t say nuthin at all. (sic)”
