Hating My Body & The Start Of My Journey To Body Acceptance & Love

Journey to Brave

Aug 16 2023 • 27 mins

I’ve been hating my body and shaming myself for putting on weight over the past 5 years. I feel far from confident about it.

Every night I look at myself in the mirror, and tell myself my stomach is fat. I tell myself that I should be at a certain weight. That I look awful. That no man would find me attractive. That I won’t achieve the level of success I want unless I’m thin.

I oscillate between accepting where I am and learning to love my 54 year body exactly the way it is, vs trying my hardest to lose the 5 kgs. It’s a constant battle in my head.

I’ve had this mental battle most of my life.

Society says women are only attractive if they look a certain way. Is it any wonder we beat the shit out of ourselves to fit into a certain mould?

I know i’m not alone. I know there’s a LOT of women feeling exactly the way I feel. And so while I kinda feel like vomiting right now, I’m doing it anyway…

Sharing my journey toward loving my body - something I’ve never felt. And it’ll be a journey, because even writing the words ‘loving my body’ brings up resistance.

This Episode of the Podcast is a ‘from the heart’ share and I hope it resonates with you.
