Diet culture, starving ourselves, food guilt, being at war with our shape, fat phobia, body shame. It’s a special kind of torture and what I’ve discovered is that no woman is immune to this hell, and for plus size women, magnify the feelings of pain by 100 because of how our culture responds to those who don’t fit in, literally.
Listen in as we talk about Sarah’s life growing up as a fat and happy child and what her uncle told her about her weight and her worth.
Hear about how the fashion industry disregards plus sized women and how much of the population that actually omits.
Gain insight into how fat phobia is literally everywhere in our culture and why it’s so important that we start to recognize how we unconsciously perpetuate it.
Fall in love with Sarah’s fierce rebellion as she shares a story about literally prying her braces off of her own teeth with a pair of pliers and why she was so hell bent to make everyone around her stop trying to make her conform to their standards of beauty.
This woman is a beautiful force to be reckoned with, taking plus size to the mainstream without asking for permission. GO SARAH!
