La modelo inglesa Iskra Lawrence compartió su transformación de peso para promover la positividad hacia el cuerpo
Iskra Lawrence ha compartido una imagen en su instagram de empoderamiento de su transformación de peso para promover el autocuidado y la confianza en el cuerpo.
Las dos imágenes se tomaron con una década de diferencia, mostrando a la modelo en las primeras etapas de su carrera, luego, 10 años después, cuando se sentía más feliz y «agradecida por este cuerpo al que llamo mi hogar».
«Solía buscar la aprobación de la industria de la moda e intenté ser ‘perfecta'», escribió en un extenso pie de Instagram. «Pensé que si me parecía a ‘ella’ (un ideal de belleza irreal), sería feliz, exitosa y amada. Todo lo que encontré fue fracaso (porque no puedes cambiar quién eres), vacío (porque mi tiempo y energía se estaban agotando tratando de lograr algo completamente auto absorbido y de sacrificio superficial haciendo las cosas que amaba) e infelicidad (porque no hay restricciones en una dieta o ejercicio abusivo que se sienta bien)».
Both of these images are of me. The left is about 10years ago. And the right just under a month ago. I remember being proud of how skinny I looked during this shoot. And how now people call me fat when I’m just happy to be alive and grateful for this body I call my home. I used to seek approval from the fashion industry and tried to be “perfect”. I thought if I looked like “her” (an unrealistic beauty ideal), I’d be happy, successful and loved. All I found was failure (because you can’t change who you are) emptiness (because my time and energy was being used up trying to achieve something completely self absorbed and shallow sacrificing doing things I loved) and unhappiness (because no restrictive diet or abusive exercise feels good) I share my experiences with you all because if you are feeling like I did there is another way and those recovering from EDs you’re not alone. The best thing I ever did was focus on looking after myself and being the best me I could be. Seeing value in who I was. The impact I could have in the world and people around me. Trying to give, instead of focusing on myself, my image and needing approval from others. And accepting that I am meant to be here just like you, and we were all created to be imperfectly perfect. I started Investing time into self-care, doing things that made me happy. Listening to my body and mind and nourishing them both, without guilt. That is 10years all squished into a lil insta caption but it did take time but it was soooo damn worth it. Because of what I went through My dream has always been to get self-care (mental, emotional and physical wellness) education into schools. And I’ve started that, but I also wanted to create something for adults that still needed a safe space that’s judgement free to go on a positive journey of self love and that’s why I created @everyBODYwithiskra I don’t have all the answers and I’m not ever trying to change anyone or tell people to do this and that etc. But I felt the need to create this as I wish I could have had this when I was struggling and if I’m able to use that to help even one person even better.

Lawrence fue descartada por la agencia modelos en la que trabajó durante 15 años, después de ser considerada «demasiado gorda», y desde entonces su misión ha sido cambiar la forma en que las mujeres sienten acerca de sus cuerpos. Recientemente lanzó un programa de salud, ejercicio y autocuidado llamado EveryBodyWithIskra, que ofrece apoyo sobre el juicio y objetivos poco realistas de la vida cotidiana.
«No tengo todas las respuestas y nunca intento cambiar a nadie ni decirle a la gente que haga esto y aquello, etc.», escribió. «Pero sentí la necesidad de crear esto porque desearía haber tenido algo así cuando estaba luchando, y si puedo usar eso para ayudar incluso a una persona para mi es lo mejor».
