Meghan King Edmonds is doing her best to keep her head up after a trying year. In the last several months, The Real Housewives of Orange County alum has dealt with a divorce, health issues surrounding her son Hart, and other "unfortunate events," and in a recent post on Instagram and her blog, she explains how all of those factors are taking a toll on her body image after several critical comments from followers.
On December 15, Meghan shared a pic on Instagram of her holding her daughter Aspen where the two lovely ladies were all smiles. Though things seemed rosy in the image, Meghan explained in her caption that things aren't always as they seem when it comes to her physique.
"'Eat a burger.' That’s what they say," she started her caption. "I’ll be real with you: I’m too thin. But please, I deserve some grace. I am doing the damn thing with all of the dignity I can muster as I put my kiddos before anything else. Much more on this (why I’ve actually lost so much weight, how I feel about it, and what I’m doing about it)."
Meghan expanded on her blog about the additional pressure this time of year. "But right now, I am too skinny. I don’t like it. I won’t weigh myself because I’m scared to see what the scale says," she wrote. "When my clothes don’t fit I pretend like they do anyway. But I’m not hungry. I know I should eat but I’m surviving on adrenaline but decaying on stress (did I mention what has happened in the last 150 days? And let’s just really lay it on by being in the thick of the holidays)."
The mom-of-three is well aware of how she looks and is looking for support as she gets through the year. "Acknowledgement is powerful and allows me to psychologically take back control. However, you hurt me when you mention it. I’m working on it," she concluded.
Wishing you the best, Meghan!
