Deb and I start out this podcast by talking about thought work and how you can effectively use it to heal your body image and other crazy-making beliefs that you are holding onto for dear life.

We go into the truth that there’s no shame in wanting to change your body. We get it as we’ve been there and thought we needed to fix our bodies too. We’ll never judge you for feeling like your body needs to be worked on in order to be worthy or loved and yet we’ll also always tell you that it will not work. You will never achieve whatever it is you’re hoping to feel/do/have by losing weight. Instead, you’ll lose time and so much joy by fighting your naturally occurring hunger and the body you were given.

We discuss how very different this journey to escaping diet prison is for every single one of us and how complex the daily realities of healing and recovery are.

We also talk about not letting thin privilege devalue your life and letting go of the need to shrink your body, your life, your truth for others.
