A modelo finlandesa Lola Pahkinamaki, hoje com 26 anos, fez um comovente desabafo sobre sua luta contra a anorexia. Ela enfrenta a doença desde os 16, quando começou a fazer dietas restritivas para emagrecer. Rapidamente, a modelo perdeu muitos quilos e desenvolveu o transtorno alimentar.
“Eu comecei a emagrecer aos 16 anos porque achava que estava acima do peso e queria melhorar minha imagem, mas as coisas começaram a ir longe demais”, contou ela em entrevista ao Daily Mail.
Lola chegou a pesar 45 kg. Hoje pesa 54 kg. Em sua conta no Instagram, ela posta o antes e depois e fala sobre o que passou.

My transformation: LEFT:45KG ⬅ RIGHT: 54KG ➡ – I have heard my body looked much better on left: I was lean, I had no bum, my legs were thin branches, I was afaid to eat for keeping my shape, I didn’t sleep well, I didn’t feel comfortable while training anymore, I felt cold all the time, I was angry because I had no energy etc.. I trained hard, I didn’t eat carbs enough and weighed myself more than twice in a week ⚖ – I am feeling much better on right, where I am now: I have no stress about eating or working out, I feel comfortable while training, I sleep well, I eat for my hunger and I am very rare feeling negative feelings, I am happy, I don’t feel cold anymore, I eat carbs a lot, I workout 1-2 times in a week, I don’t weigh myself at all anymore 🙏🏻 – What it asked to get in ”this shape” I am today? At first: to me it’s not shape, it’s a balance! And secondable: all it asked was desire to feel better, not look better 🙏🏻 – On my blog I am next talking about how to keep health up when life kicks your ass. Especially for people who has eating disorder or an other mental illness it’s very hard. But for other people as well, we are all humans so it’s very normal to lose control at times 🤭 I am having hard times right now so I am going to share my own tips for surviving as well! Stay tuned if you are interested to know how do I do it myself! 🔥
Lola relatou que a doença foi desencadeada por vários motivos diferentes – problemas na infância e dificuldades de relacionamento com a família, além de bullying na escola e autoestima baixa. Ela só começou a se recuperar depois que os médicos disseram que ela morreria se não melhorasse – alertaram, inclusive, sobre o risco de seus ossos quebrarem por causa do baixo peso.
A modelo é conhecida como Barbie e, apesar de ainda ser magra, diz que, enfim, se curou da anorexia, após uma longa batalha.
“Eu me chamo de ‘Brain Barbie’ porque eu entendo muito bem que a verdadeira beleza vem de dentro da cabeça”, ponderou.
Lola enfrentou a anorexia com mais gravidade em duas ocasiões. “Eu sei que é uma batalha mental. Quando seu cérebro parece bom e saudável, você se sente bem e saudável. E quando você se sentir bem e saudável, você realmente parece bem e saudável”, pontuou.
Quando criou uma rotina de exercícios combinada com alimentação saudável, Lola passou a adotar e compartilhar os benefícios desse estilo de vida.
“Em um ano, eu perdi peso comendo saudavelmente. Comecei a fazer exercícios e amei o jeito que me sentia”, relatou.

Left: looking at my body, felt good in this pic but still felt fat at times. Had anxiety and did sports twice in day every single day 🤦🏼♀️ . Right: looking at my body, the place my whole system is living in and respecting it the way it is. Being happy, feeling good and not fat anymore no matter huge weight gain. Reached body positivity and final body peace. Doing sports 2 times in week 🙏🏻 – RECOVERY TALK: Eating disorder is mental illness and this is what was the hardest thing to grant to myself. Right now, at first I want to say for everyone who’s fighting for this kind of issues: do not be ashamed of your illness or yourself. You will get better my dear, you will if you really want it ❤ – When I started to study brains and nervous system after recovery I found lots of understanding to myself. I wish I knew this all about human system years ago, it would have saved me from lots of pain and anxiety, from many failed meals and unhealthy sports 🍝❌ This is why I so much talk about human system, about brain and how does the brain work. Because I have seen it helps a lot with self understanding and doing this with self searching it is possible to reach recovery by becoming body positive person ❤ – Today I am curvy, I have healthy body fat and my structure is stronger than ever. I wear woman clothes instead children clothes today, I eat 5-8 meals in a day and do sports only twice in week. I sleep better, I am not anxious like I was while eating disorder, I feel good in my shape and I don’t stress about gaining. This is what I call body peace and oh, it feels so peaceful 🙏🏻💖
