“I battled with many eating disorders and body issues as a younger girl and it took me a long time to find self-love and acceptance! Trust me, all of that pain and destruction I inflicted on myself wasn’t worth it. Turning down so. Many. Sides. Of. Fries. Wasn’t worth it!!” Ireland wrote.
She continued, “I would eat a meal or more like a bite and have to run to the nearest bathroom or find digestive pills or run until I couldn’t feel my legs right before bed.”
“I used to read people’s comments when I first started modeling and anytime anyone told me I was too tall or too fat to have done a job, I would run on a treadmill for the entire duration of at least three episodes of Friday Night Lights that I had on a box set,” Baldwin explained.
“Love yourself!! You are beautiful!!” Ireland concluded her message.
Adding, “Enjoy your food. Eat ice cream with your friends! Workout and eat healthy to take care of your mind and body but find your healthy balance! Life is too short.”
Ireland’s revelation about suffering from the disorders came after her stepmom, Hilaria Baldwin, discussed also suffering from a past eating disorder.
