Meet Sophie. Two years ago Sophie decided to go on an extreme diet because she wasn't happy with the way that she looked. In the first three months of her diet, Sophie lost 4 dress sizes and 3st (almost 20kg). After this, she then began exercising for 2 hrs per day and eating only fruit and salad. She got to the point where she no longer wanted to go to work because she felt she "looked too fat". Her sister brought her attention to this unhealthy mindset and this encouraged Sophie to seek help. After months of counselling and therapy, Sophie is now in a much better place; everyday trying to be happy with the person she is. Eating disorders can come in all shapes and sizes and Sophie urges anyone who may be travelling along a similar path to reach out. For Sophie, some days are better than others; but she is tackling each day as it comes. She is a Strong Woman.
