The Swedish teen calls her Instagram account "fitspo"
Fifteen months before becoming one of Instagram's most popular fitness bloggers, she was admitted to the hospital with an eating disorder.

Which is why she's very careful about what she shares online. She won't divulge calories, her own weight, or anything she perceives as triggering. She uses Instagram as a tool to track her recovery, and refuses to use social media to engage in things that will impede her ability to move forward and away from her eating disorder.
She does want to continue to document her recovery. "I felt I had a responsibility since I had a lot of followers who looked up to me and saw me as an inspiration... it became very important to me to recover in a good way and to stay healthy. To show people that it was possible and worth it." [Stuff]
