The Student Who Got Bullied For Her ‘Thunder Thighs’ Is Now A Fitness Model

Student Meghan Gilbert was bullied for having ‘thunder thighs’ and she shut everyone down by becoming a fitness model.

The 21-year-old  from Dallas, Texas, gained 200lbs because of an eating disorder and then got bullied by a lot of her fellow students. Due to the horrible things they said, she was diagnosed with anxiety and depression.

But now she shed the weight, dropping to 137lbs 9st 11lbs.

The girl on the left was 200 lbs of depression, anxiety, and sin. I was addicted to drugs and I partied every night. I woke up in the morning wanting to forget that I had to wake up this morning.. my life was just..sad. I hated every part of my body and being until I took one too many pills and sipped one too many drinks, waking up after 36 hours of straight sleep. Well, could be longer. When I woke up from my overdose, I saw my tattoo “walk by faith not by sight” and that’s when I knew I wasn’t doing life right. The Bible PREACHES LOVE! That’s Jesus’s commandment. So that’s where I started. I loved myself. I loved the gym. I loved the hardship. I loved the pain and soreness. I loved the people around me. And most of all, I loved God. When you first start to lift weights and someone pushes you to go harder, most the time you say no I can’t do that much! But then you try, and you get one Rep out. You think you can’t do it, but in reality you can. It hurts. You build muscle by tearing it down… Same thing goes in life. You gain strength through hardship. You will always have gloomy times in your life, and what matters most is your mindset. Saying no, I can’t do it and not trying. Or saying yes, I can do it. I will try. I won’t give up, no matter how hard it is or how much it hurts. I trust You, God. After the pain and trials, you end up stronger. I started at a 5lb dumbell, and now I’m lifting a 25lb. It hurt when I first lifted that 5.. so bad. But I kept on going. To 10. It hurt. To 15. It hurt. The same goes for life. Trials are like God’s gym. Building you up to prepare for what is to come next. ❤️ 80 lbs downs plus a gained mindset of strength and endurance. Clean for 2 years and one month 😊😊😊😊😊🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼

YALL! I have been taking an insane random road trip over the past few days and got stuck in the Grand Canyon last night 😭 I apologize for the delay on the plans. Check back tomorrow for the real launch and add my snap to watch my road trip 😲

Meghan says that confidence and not giving up helped her the most to become a fitness model.

“Saying no, I can’t do it and not trying. Or saying yes, I can do it. I will try. I won’t give up, no matter how hard it is or how much it hurts. I trust You, God.”

“After the pain and trials, you end up stronger. I started at a 5lb dumbell, and now I’m lifting a 25lb. It hurt when I first lifted that 5.. so bad, but I kept on going. To 10. It hurt. To 15. It hurt.

“The same goes for life. Trials are like God’s gym. Building you up to prepare for what is to come next. 80 lbs down, plus a gained mindset of strength and endurance. Clean for 2 years and one month.”

Meghan is an example of hard work and such an inspiration. It almost makes you want to hit the gym… Or at least put fitness in you New Year’s resolutions. Would you do that?

We would.
