We're always heartbroken when we hear that someone has a past like this, but then we take a step back and become proud of them for conquering the things that once threatened to tear them down!
Pretty Little Liars star Shay Mitchell says that she used to STARVE herself!
In the June issue of Self magazine, which we already told you had some suuuuper sexy photos of Shay on the cover, Shay reveals the struggle with eating she had to get through before she could be who she is today:
"Being beautiful doesn't mean being skinny. It's about being healthy. I'd starve myself for a day, and the next day I was hungry, tired and miserable. When I felt so bad about not being able to fit into size 0 jeans, I realized I had to make a change."
We're SO glad you made that change!
We know that you're happier and healthier than ever — and we hope you never look back! The future is SO bright for you, Shay! Treating yourself like the flawless specimen that you are (regardless of fitting into those 0 jeans) is the only way to go!
