She weighed just 60 pounds at one point, but through treatment was able to put on some weight and is now a - much healthier - 110 pounds.
Though Annalise Mishler's case in particular was the result of severe trauma, she offered words of advice for anyone suffering from an eating disorder to Life and Style:
"If you're suffering with an eating disorder, you need help... You need a therapist, a dietician, and probably a psychiatrist — a team of people who can advocate for you and help you with every single step of the way."
She is also hoping to inspire others through some of the pictures she shares on Instagram.
(Nov 2016-June 2017) it may not be #transformationtuesday but it is #humpday and despite the obvious physical change is an incredible mental change. i used to be scared to wear crop tops even tho i had an EIGHT pack because i worried that if i sat down my stomach would have rolls. (???) now, i weigh 60 pounds more and i wear a crop top more days than not and give zero fux. not only do i love my body more than ever and feel so much gratitude that i was able to live through 5 years of weighing less than half of what i should have, but i am determined to help anyone and everyone that is in the place that i was in the left photo and the second 2 photos. it's why i do what i do--why i put myself out there online on youtube and why i am transparent and vulnerable with countless strangers. i want to help as many people as i can. i was given a second (and third and fourth) chance at life because i have a purpose; that purpose is to spread awareness and help those who can't help themselves at the moment. my transformation video will be up on my youtube tonight. make sure to subscribe ✨🎥annie mishler
