“I am a very proud momma. @AmeliaGHamlin you are brave, courageous, and so very strong for 16 years of age. For any age!You have touched so many! We all love you so much. You my love, are fearless!!!” she tweeted. She also took to Instagram to show how proud and happy she was of her by sharing a throwback picture of Amelia. In the caption, Lisa appreciated Amelia for the strength she took to battle anorexia and to come forward and talk about her story. 

Your will and your strength for someone of 16 years of age is way beyond your years. You are so wise and each day you teach us to be better and to do better,” she wrote. She added that her daughter had always inspired others and she was proud of the woman she had become. 

"I do believe you were put on this earth to help others. You are an inspiration to us all. We are so very blessed to have the family that we have and the love we all share. Your truth has set you free. I love you to the moon and back. So in awe of your commitment and strength," she further wrote.

Amelia spoke about her struggles with eating disorder in an Instagram post. "Also mentally," she wrote in the caption. "Instead of people ever commenting on my mental stability, people commented on my weight. Usually, when people are struggling with an eating disorder it stems from your mind, and your body is a reflection of it.” She confessed that she taught herself to love the way she and her body is. But she found happiness by being the source of inspiration for several others who battled the same. 

Even though things have been hard in the recent times because of her Hashimoto disease diagnosis, Amelia has decided to not give up. "I have a lot of health complications after starving myself for so long so it’s going to be a journey that I go through for a large part of my life…," she wrote. "Not to say that recently being diagnosed with Hashimoto’s has also been an extreme challenge for me to balance when still getting over this part of my life, but I am getting there. One day at a time. I want to help."
