YouTube fitness star Cassey Ho is known for her bubbly personality and body-positive message, but she’s also not afraid to talk about her past struggle with anorexia. “I thought I had to be super skinny and super toned and all of that kind of stuff, and compared myself with other fitness people and Instagrammers,” Ho said while speaking on the #GirlLove panel at VidCon, the biggest online video convention.

Ho has talked about her eating disorder in the past, but this time, she added a message we could all stand to hear again and again: “Once you realize there’s so much more than your abs and your booty, then you can really thrive in life. There is so much more to life than your body.”
