INTERVIEW

ROSALIE

At 55kg, a UK size 8, she walked into one of the UK’s largest modelling agencies.

She was told she needed to lose weight to reach the agency’s high standards.

After four grueling months of intense exercise, dieting, and calorie counting, Rosalie returned to the same agency almost a stone lighter.

But they told her to lose more weight. They wanted her ‘down to the bone’.

Rosalie Nelson, 28, was born in Canberra, Australia.

She moved to London aged 22, after modelling in Australia for four years.

Rosalie's greatest regret is putting herself under so much pressure to be thin and pushing herself too hard.
