ESTABA ESQUELÉTICA Y NO ERA FELIZ

La motivadora historia de Golden-Bhojwani, la modelo que comenzó a vivir tras engordar

La maniquí comía tan solo 500 calorías al día y aún así no estaba conforme con su peso. Dejó de desfilar, engordó un poco y ahora es una mujer distinta: más feliz, más estable, más mujer

La vida de una modelo no es sencilla. Todo el que piense en una maniquí de éxito se imagina las fiestas repletas de glamour, las alfombras rojas, el éxito personal que supone tener dinero a mansalva y también la satisfacción de saber que uno mismo es capaz de generar beneficios por 'tu cara bonita'; sin embargo, esta moneda tiene otra cara que no es tan apetecible. Vivir en constante dieta y midiendo las calorías al dedillo, largos viajes por todo el mundo sin tener tiempo ni para visitar los monumentos más emblemáticos y, de paso, no poder disfrutar del tiempo libre con tu familia o amigos por tener que continuar pendiente de su estresante ritmo de vida.

A little flashback Friday action for you. This caption will be long and won't fit, so if you'd like to read please find the rest in the comment section....The left side was me at the start of the peak of my career. My first proper fashion week where I was actually the size I needed to be. I was booking amazing shows that one never thinks they actually could, walking with girls who I once looked up to, it was a serious adrenaline rush...but after fainting one night in my apt whilst preparing one of my very low cal meals (I think it was 20 pieces of steamed edamame if I remember correctly), I called it quits with the diet and workout regime I was put on and decided I could do it on my own. I thought to myself, I can still be this thin, but I'll just eat a little more so I don't feel so horrible. Well, eating a little more turned into eating nearly a bag full of almonds, which then turned into eating full size meals, which then turned into a full blown binge. I was craving every single food you could imagine and I was giving in to every craving even though I knew this was such an important time in my career. I made it through NYFW okay, no one had noticed any weight gain, but by the time I had gotten the LFW I could see the pounds starting to show both in the mirror and on the measuring tape, but I kept quiet obviously not wanting to sabotage myself. I found myself going to the grocery store and picking up raw vegetables to try and make up for the near two week binge I had in NY, but I didn't see any weight coming off no matter how "healthy" I was eating and no matter how many workouts I fit in. MFW came and I knew I was bigger and by bigger I mean a 35.5in hip rather than the 34.5in hip I started with in NY, I played it cool and just pretended everything was normal. I did end up booking shows, Dolce & Gabbana being one of them. Which I afterwards received online criticism about my thighs looking fat...Anyways PFW came about, and I found it impossible to resist those chocolate croissants 🙊 I went on many a casting with one exclusive option being on my schedule, but after meeting the client I knew the reason for me not nailing the gig, my size...

Estas dos caras de la moneda las ha disfrutado Liza Golden-Bhojwani, que vivía en constante régimen para lucir escuálida en las pasarelas. Comía tan solo 500 calorías al día, lo que le permitía presumir de huesos bajo la piel. Un ritmo de vida que pronto terminó por pasarle factura, cuando un desmayo la hizo concienciarse de que esta existencia no debía durar más, por lo que tomó la decisión de bajarse de las pasarelas y convertirse en una mujer normal, con curvas, pero feliz. Realmente feliz, ya que las calorías pasaron a ser un mero dato que ella ni consulta y los kilos de más una prueba de que la belleza no entiende de peso.

Dejé de luchar contra mi cuerpo”, comenta la modelo en una imagen compartida en su perfil de Instagram y que está cosechando un gran éxito viral al sorprender a propios y extraños por su impresionante transformación física. En ella muestra cómo estaba antes de dejar su profesión y cómo luce su cuerpo en la actualidad, más voluminoso, pero que le ha alegrado el rostro: “En la foto de la izquierda estoy yo al comienzo de la cumbre de mi carrera. Era mi primera Semana de la Moda y estaba en el peso en el que tenía que estar para ello. Pero, tras desmayarme un día en mi apartamento mientras preparaba mi comida baja en calorías (20 piezas de edamame hervido), decidí parar con la dieta y el entrenamiento y mantener el peso por mi cuenta”, escribe la modelo, que también cuenta cómo siguió con su carrera con un cuerpo alejado de la anorexia que le exigían y cómo la insultaban durante los desfiles por estar 'gorda'.

I can't believe that this time next week I will be in London, working. Last year this time, I had just gotten married and been enjoying all our wedding celebrations with friends. I never planned on starting to work again. I never thought I would be able to face the industry I had been in for so long, but felt I had failed at so incredibly. But then out of the blue one day, I found myself saying, "okay, this is it, you can do it again, focus, diet strictly, and workout like a beast so you can get that body back and get back to working." You know how it goes, it takes you 3+ months to get in shape, but takes you just a week to start losing that perfect muscle tone you have been working so hard on. It's quite frustrating. All I ever wanted was to be a naturally small girl. Naturally thin. The girls who were just BORN for this shit. They were born to fit in every damn thing perfectly. God how many years I wished that upon myself. But then I realised, that would never be me, I would never be the size 0-2 girl who can just be that way without having to slave away at it... I have come to terms with it and accepted it as you may have noticed in my previous posts. I have moved on from the obsession of fitting into the standard perfect model mould. And I have decided to make my own mould, my own shape, my own personal being. Again, I know I am not perfect. I am not perfect physically, mentally, or emotionally. I am really not sure WHO is. I have been through my trials and tribulations, where I really just lost hope in myself, life, and the world... But I would like to share with you that even the most broken and imperfect people can see the light at the end of the tunnel. One day, somehow, there is always hope for a positive outcome in each and every one of our lives.
