Following the picture, Ireland explained how she would "eat a meal or more like a bite and have to run to the nearest bathroom or find digestive pills or run until I couldn't feel my legs right before bed". Ireland noted that she was pushed towards these unhealthy eating habits after she came across negative comments about her body on social media. She further added that it affected her more than it should have.
"Anytime anyone told me I was too tall or too fat to have done a job, I would run on a treadmill for the entire duration of at least three episodes of Friday Night Lights," she wrote, as reported by E! News. "I battled with many eating disorders and body issues as a younger girl and it took me a long time to find self-love and acceptance."

Your body should be treated with the dignity and respect it deserves," she noted.
