Little did Morgan Bartley, who is just a nineteen-year-old college going student, know that her photos on Instagram would get deleted without any notification specifying the reason for it.
Morgan is a resident of Ventura, California, and she has been happily posting photos that were taken throughout her weight loss journey.
She had been chronicling her progress on weight loss in her Instagram account. Nothing seems wrong in this, right?
What caused her to gain so much weight at the age of only 19?
Well, when the teen was just 15 years of age, she was diagnosed with a very painful condition called Ovarian torsion. This disease caused her the loss of one of the ovaries.
The doctors even went on to say that she may not be able to bear a child of her own ever in future as her womb was incapable of doing so. Even though she was at a very tender age to understand the implications or the severity of her condition, she started suffering from depression.
Due to her depression, she developed an eating disorder which led her to gain 70 pounds of weight.
She had confessed,
“I felt as if my body had failed me, and that I had no control of what was happening with my life, Binging was the one thing I could control, it was my escape.”
However, at the age of 17, better sense prevailed and she decided to take back the control of her life again. She went in for a surgery to lose weight, met therapists, took care of her diet and even began working out. As a result, she managed to lose 115 pounds. Amazing determination, one must say!
She has posted many revealing but not shameless or harmful photos through her Instagram account showing how much weight she has lost by posting before and after pictures during her entire weight loss journey.
But sadly, this didn’t go down well with Instagram, and her bikini clad photos were removed without any notification or warning. She is hurt with this and wonders what could be the reason behind this. She wasn’t doing anything wrong and had just posted photos of her transformed body.
But she’s not about to let that keep her down.
“I’ve worked relentlessly to accomplish what I have, and I refuse to let anyone take that from me.”
She hopes to drop another thirty pounds and is doing her best to avoid obsessing over the numbers on the scale.
