“As a teen I had accepted that I would never be seen as ‘feminine’ because the media tells us we must be small, dainty, cute and soft-spoken. Over the years it had been ingrained in me, that to be feminine meant to be desirable and to be worthy of a good life,” writes the New York-based woman. “I’ve slowly freed myself from these toxic thoughts…”

Appearing on Dr. Phil to talk about body positivity, Bible explained she struggled with weight since her childhood. “At the age of 14, I was about 200lb…I had this personal trainer that was not very nice. They’d tell me if I wanted friends, I’d need to lose weight, that no-one would ever love me if I’m fat.”
