Brittany Miles Beat An Eating Disorder And Now Loves Her Curves

Brittany Miles had an eating disorder then began compulsive dieting and exercising after being tormented about her weight in high school. She went from a size 18 to a size 4 and was 15 pounds underweight. Over time, she began to exercise less, eat more and reshape her attitudes toward food and her body. Miles now hosts a site on Tumblr that encourages people to embrace their bodies and reminds them that eating disorders don’t manifest themselves in a certain appearance.

“Our society and my peers told me that I wasn’t lovable when I was fat. That when I was fat, I couldn’t be anything else,” said Miles, now a senior and a biology major at Georgia Tech in Atlanta. “So, I was determined to be the farthest thing from fat possible.”
