S2 E8: I’ll Never Fit In: Fighting for Acceptance

November 8, 2019

Shar and Heidi talk about how rude comments and judgments about weight can cause body dissatisfaction, which has NOTHING to do with a person’s actual weight, but on how we feel we are seen. Unsolicited advice, advertising and social media play a big role in body image and sets unrealistic expectations on our bodies. They also talk about the struggle of not letting “fat” become an identity and why it is important to see ourselves as a whole person and not simply who we are based on weight. YOU. DO. YOU.
