Seriously! Victoria’s Secret model Erin Heatherton was asked to lose few pounds in 2013? She had already hit the target weight in 2012 and was on strict diet and exercise regularly. No wonder, she was pissed off. According to Erin, despite her eating healthy and exercising twice a day, her body "just wouldn't do it"

“My last two Victoria’s Secret shows, I was told I had to lose weight,” she says. “I look back like, ‘Really?'”

Shortly after that, she resigned but she had already worked for 5 years for them. While she worked there, she was unbelievably popular and praised. This angel often appeared in various fashion shows and catalogues while her tenure before she finally decided to bid farewell.

Although she is a model and maintaining their figure is mandatory, it was too much for Erin who was finding it hard to please them. She looks really hot and her figure looks really toned but her employer might have started to piss her off. This lingerie company might have wanted a slimmer waist to fit their products in.


The breakdown to breakthrough moment in my life has allowed me to become the truest version of myself. In my moment of “failure,” I stood in the face of adversity. I was struggling with my body image and the pressures to fulfill the demands of perfectionism upon me. I am not perfect. Through this struggle, however, I found the strength to love myself. I stood in my power. I thought of one of my favorite quotes, “Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a men’s character, give him power” - Abraham Lincoln. I look back on that moment now, and I embrace it. This feeling I once perceived as “failure” was, in truth, a powerful awakening for me to stand behind my purpose in life. I stepped away from hiding behind a fabricated version of myself. I no longer put actions behind my fears and insecurities. I made a choice to redirect my energy to be a catalyst for change. To create a channel for women to become the truest versions of themselves, along with me. (Stay tuned for more...) In the end, if you aren’t being true to yourself, then what the fuck is the point. #rebelwacause #empowerment #womensempowerment#empoweredbyyou
