“What Not to Wear” co-host Stacy London is a picture of confidence and empowerment on TLC, but in the latest issue of People she revealed that she battled with eating disorders for much of her youth.

During her early 20s, London was anorexic and was a pin-thin 90 pounds at her lowest point. She was hospitalized for her condition and, over the next year, gained another 90 pounds from binge eating. Now 43, she seems to have overcome her battles with compulsive eating and anorexia. “My value doesn’t simply come from [being thin],” she said. “It comes from me and solely from me. It took me a long time to recognize that.”

London’s latest book, “The Truth About Style,” discusses her body image issues. “When you can talk about something and shine light on it, you’re obliterating shame,” she told People. “And that to me was always the really hard part — to feel so filled with shame and having no recourse to thinking it could get better.”
