The model revealed on Instagram that she is currently in recovery for anorexia nervosa.
"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.. I've punished my entire life and I am finally free."
Revealing she's been receiving positive comments for losing weight, and that these made her uncomfortable.
Not the “but your fat how are you anorexic” comments. Y’all don’t know how science & body works huh. My technical diagnosis is anorexia nervosa & yes, I’m still not ashamed. I’m too damn happy for y’all to even come close to dimming my shine.— Tess H🍒lliday (@Tess_Holliday) May 2, 2021
