“I’d been deliberating whether to post this or not for a while. It’s high-time I shared a SMALL snippet of my journey with you. So this decade, I conquered eating disorders (exacerbated by my media job), anxiety (nearly) and low self-esteem (that’s right, I had it). Here I was a size 00 weighed 39 Kgs and severely malnourished. I was very sick,” stated the Rasm e Dunya actor.

I am happy in my skin now, I meditate and I eat healthily and I have a general feeling of well-being. The purpose is to tell you all that you are beautiful no matter what shape or size you are, don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. The most important thing in this world is your health. To all those suffering from these horrible ailments, I’m sending you BIG hugs, positive energy and I pray that you may prevail. Ameen,” wrote Armeena on her Instagram, urging people to stop body shaming and be happy in the skin they were.
