Megan Jayne was diagnosed with anorexia when she was 14. At her thinnest, Megan weighed only 32kg (70 pounds) and had to be hospitalized and fed with a feeding tube.

After a long struggle, the 22-year-old from Colchester, England is now happy and healthy and is using her Instagram to promote body positivity and empowerment.

According to a report in Distractify, Megan told The Daily Mail:

"If a picture of my tummy rolls or cellulite being shamelessly embraced can show someone else that their body is worth loving too. Then I will post the most tummy-tastic, lumpy bumpy, thunder-thigh pictures that I can take."

Apart from using photos of herself, Megan also posts inspirational quotes to lift spirits and show what the true meaning of life is.

She even made a response video to Nicole Arbour's now-notorious "Dear Fat People" video, which was slammed for shaming fat people. 

Megan also has a website called where she wrote:

"Every time we don’t wear something, or eat something, or do something, because we think we aren’t good enough, that we don’t deserve it, we let a little bit of life slip through our fingers."
