No. 26 | Take Back Your Power. You are More than Your Body! with Steph Gaudreau

Beth and Steph chat through their experiences surrounding body image and ditching the idea that our worth lies in our external appearance. We talk through what we see to be the differences in body positivity and body neutrality and share personal stories and turning points in our journey that helped shift our perspectives.

In this Episode We Discuss:

  • the importance of the non-measurable aspects of health changes
  • letting go of the societal rules surrounding food, willpower and our choices
  • embracing making choices from a different perspective
  • the mental and emotional freedom that comes from taking up space, showing up big and focusing on strength vs. shrinking, being small and making choices to "fix" our body
  • negativity as a motivator and why it doesn't work
  • body neutrality is NOT giving up
  • can you make changes when you aren't moving from a negative mindset?
  • how acceptance can offer clarity and solution
  • it's OK to not love all of your body!!
  • it is NOT your job or responsibility to make anyone else comfortable when they look at your body!!!
  • on wearing the damn shorts, understanding cellulite and SO MUCH MORE!!!
