I love helping women to feel better in their bodies. To love the skin they're in.
But what does loving your body really mean?
Does it mean you really have to love every bit unconditionally?
Does it mean never having a negative thought about your body when you look in the mirror?
No. Not really. I mean maybe one day.
But loving your body is a daily practice.
And it starts with acceptance.
It also starts by talking about it with other women.
Sharing our stories, our pain, our hurt, our shame, so that we can realize that every woman no matter what her size struggles to love her body.
Yes every woman.
Even that one you're thinking of right now.
The one who you look at and think "If I could JUST look like her then I'll be beautiful".
Well for the last year I've been hosting an in person coaching and connection group in my home called Body Love LA, and a website called littlethings.com asked my friend Ian Midgley, a documentary filmmaker, to do a piece about me and the group work I'm doing here in LA to help women accept and love their bodies in a city that makes it extra hard.
You can read about and watch the piece here!
And if you're interested in joining in the conversation and having opportunities to talk about and feel more empowered in your relationship with your body, your food, and your self, I invite you to join my new community - The Rebellious Eater - on Facebook where I'll be doing live streams and hosting online group discussions, as well as posting about local LA opportunities to be a part of the conversation.
