Holly Madison is sharing her struggles with body dysmorphia. In a TikTok video posted on Sunday, Madison detailed what she went through and how she viewed her body during her time at the Playboy Mansion.
“So for a recent post, I was looking for pictures of myself in a bunny costume and I came across one. It reminded me of a moment in my life where I was watching a playback of myself in a fashion show and I thought, ‘Oh my god, I need to lose weight,'” Madison explained before sharing a photo of herself from 2005.
The model went on to say that she wanted to be honest about what she went through in an effort to help others who are struggling with body dysmorphia.
“I hope people can take a minute and think about how they think about their own body and is it holding you back by feeling bad about yourself?” Madison asked her fans in the clip before sharing how her own view of her body prevented her from enjoying life.
“It’s not worth it. It’s not worth feeling bad about yourself. Like, there are things we all want to improve about ourselves, but it’s not even worth taking the time to be miserable,” she added.
Madison said she was “terrified” to look at photos of herself, like the one she share of her in her iconic bunny suit, because it would send her mind into a tailspin.
“[I] thought I had gained weight, and thought I hadn’t stuck to my diet, and I thought my thighs were huge and I thought, ‘I need to lose five pounds at least,'” she recalled. “And that’s ridiculous. I look like a stick.”
