Former Victoria's Secret model Erin Heatherton traded in her wings back in 2013 after being asked by the brand to lose weight -- and now she's sharing her story with Time magazine.
While the model had been with the lingerie company for nearly five years, she'd had enough when they pushed her to her limits.
"My last two Victoria's Secret shows, I was told I had to lose weight," she revealed. "I look back like, 'Really?'"
Though Erin was working out twice a day as she prepped for the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, she just couldn't reach the brand's specified weight.
"I was really depressed because I was working so hard and I felt like my body was resisting me," she explained. "And I got to a point where one night I got home from a workout and I remember staring at my food and thinking maybe I should just not eat."
Now, with her Victoria's Secret modeling days behind her, Erin finally feels comfortable in her own skin.
"I stepped away from hiding behind a fabricated version of myself," she said. "I no longer put actions behind my fears and insecurities."
