Brittany Miles began compulsive dieting and exercising after being tormented about her weight in high school. She went from a size 18 to a size 4 and was 15 pounds underweight.
Over time, she began to exercise less, eat more and reshape her attitudes toward food and her body.
Miles now hosts a site on Tumblr that encourages people to embrace their bodies and reminds them that eating disorders don't manifest themselves in a certain appearance.
She said beginning her own blog was her way of supporting other people in her situation, especially those who recover to be plus-sized.
She no longer sees food as her nemesis and eats what makes her happy, not letting calories control the choices she makes. She's proud that she's experienced foods that she wouldn't have dared to eat during her illness.
"People who don't know me look at me now and see a 'before' photo. Little do they know that I'm an 'after' photo over 14 years in the making," she said.
