A 24-year-old blogger Danica Marjanovic, who was a size 10 and “miserable” in her teens, is a living example as she’s now pursuing a career as a plus-size model after suffering from bodydysmorphia.
It was gathered that she battled body dysmorphia from a young age, and never felt happy about her slim figure despite losing a considerable amount of weight in her late teens.
According to Daily Mirror report, she said;
“When I look at photos from back then, I can remember the exact emotion that I felt at that certain time and I just remember being really unhappy and miserable.
“I wanted to start posting about body positivity online, I kind of thought to myself – what was the scariest thing I could do that would challenge those insecurities that I have about myself.
“My blog helps me deal with my mental health firstly because showing my body is obviously helping my self esteem which is a huge impact on my depression – I see it like my online diary.”
