Overcoming anorexia was not easy, but Megan received help from her father, who accompanied her during the hard process. He eventually recovered, but discovered that at some point he replaced starvation with food binge eating, so after gaining weight he had to start dieting with several nutritionists.

Now Megan sees her body in a loving way and on her Instagram account she uploads bikini photos and videos in which she dances safely and confidently.
