**Trigger warning for this episode: mentions of dieting, weight loss, disordered eating, calorie restriction, exercise addiction, and fat phobia**
In March of 2020, I broke up with diet culture once and for all. I was coming off of a 15 year obsession with restrictive dieting, although I didn’t see it like that at the time. I was exhausted from trying to change the size of my body year after year, and I knew that in order to give myself a different future, I needed help.
Since then, I have worked every day to heal my relationship with food, exercise, body image, and self-worth. The story is not complete, (actually it won’t ever be complete) but I am ready to share the beginning with you today.
This is part one in a larger series where I’ll be sharing my experiences. Please note, this podcast is not a replacement for one-on-one coaching with a professional. I can only speak to my story.
