Society loves to conflate "skinny" with "healthy." But let's not forget "skinny" can also mean "unhealthy" and "a total nightmare." Just ask British model and body activist Charli Howard, who spent years at an "unhealthily low weight" after being told she was "too big" for modeling gigs, People reports.
Ever since quitting with a LITERAL FU to the fashion industry, she is doing much, much better. Yesterday the 26-year-old shared a powerful message about body acceptance on Instagram, along with photos of her from before, and now that she's "happier than I’ve ever been."
She definitely looks prettier now. But more importantly, she looks alive. And HAPPY.
