Esta modelo ha compartido su cambio de peso tras dejar la industria de la moda

Liza Golden-Bhojwani solía desfilar en las pasarelas más importantes del mundo. Hasta que, según sus propias palabras, 'dejé de luchar contra mi cuerpo'. Golden-Bhojwani ha contado su historia a través de una foto colgada en su cuenta de Instagram, en la que puede verse su cambio físico desde los tiempos en los que era modelo de pasarela:

A little flashback Friday action for you. This caption will be long and won't fit, so if you'd like to read please find the rest in the comment section....The left side was me at the start of the peak of my career. My first proper fashion week where I was actually the size I needed to be. I was booking amazing shows that one never thinks they actually could, walking with girls who I once looked up to, it was a serious adrenaline rush...but after fainting one night in my apt whilst preparing one of my very low cal meals (I think it was 20 pieces of steamed edamame if I remember correctly), I called it quits with the diet and workout regime I was put on and decided I could do it on my own. I thought to myself, I can still be this thin, but I'll just eat a little more so I don't feel so horrible. Well, eating a little more turned into eating nearly a bag full of almonds, which then turned into eating full size meals, which then turned into a full blown binge. I was craving every single food you could imagine and I was giving in to every craving even though I knew this was such an important time in my career. I made it through NYFW okay, no one had noticed any weight gain, but by the time I had gotten the LFW I could see the pounds starting to show both in the mirror and on the measuring tape, but I kept quiet obviously not wanting to sabotage myself. I found myself going to the grocery store and picking up raw vegetables to try and make up for the near two week binge I had in NY, but I didn't see any weight coming off no matter how "healthy" I was eating and no matter how many workouts I fit in. MFW came and I knew I was bigger and by bigger I mean a 35.5in hip rather than the 34.5in hip I started with in NY, I played it cool and just pretended everything was normal. I did end up booking shows, Dolce & Gabbana being one of them. Which I afterwards received online criticism about my thighs looking fat...Anyways PFW came about, and I found it impossible to resist those chocolate croissants I went on many a casting with one exclusive option being on my schedule, but after meeting the client I knew the reason for me not nailing the gig, my size...

"En la foto de la izquierda estoy yo al comienzo de la cumbre de mi carrera. Era mi primera Semana de la Moda y estaba en el peso en el que tenía que estar para ello. Pero, tras desmayarme un día en mi apartamento mientras preparaba mi comida baja en calorías (20 piezas de edamame hervido), decidí parar con la dieta y el entrenamiento y mantener el peso por mi cuenta", ha contado.

Tras esa decisión, la modelo comenzó a comer compulsivamente, lo que le hizo ganar algo de peso. Aun así, continuó apareciendo en desfiles: "Por uno de ellos, de Dolce & Gabbana, recibí insultos online en los que se me decía que estaba gorda", asegura.

 

Dos años después, volvió a restringir al máximo su alimentación para poder continuar desfilando. Hasta que se mudó a la India, donde conoció a su hoy marido, y dejó por completo su carrera de modelo. "Un día me di cuenta de que esa no podía ser yo. Nunca sería esa chica que entra en una talla 0 sin tener que esclavizarme para conseguirla".

Ahora, Liza trabaja como modelo 'plus-size' y utiliza su cuenta de Instagram para transmitir mensajes 'body positive' con sus seguidores.
