Body image pt. 2

LAST WEEK, YOU GUYS HEARD PART 1 OF OUR CONVERSATION ON BODY IMAGE. THIS CONVERSATION WAS LONG, WINDY, AND FUN! SO WE SPLIT THIS EPISODE INTO TWO PARTS SO YOU DON’T GET CUT OFF ON THIS HEARTFELT CONVERSATION ON BODY IMAGE AND OUR PERSONAL BODY IMAGE JOURNEYS.

WE WANTED TO CONTINUE TALKING ABOUT THIS TOPIC THROUGH THE LENS OF POP CULTURE AND SOCIAL MEDIA. THERE WAS SO MUCH MORE TO DISCUSS AND THERE ARE MANY DIFFERENT PORTRAYALS OF BODY IMAGE RELEVANT TO THIS SUBJECT.

WE HOPE YOU ENJOY PART 2!

DISCLAIMER: WE WILL BE CANDIDLY DISCUSSING ISSUES INCLUDING BODY DYSMORPHIA, EATING DISORDERS, DEPRESSION, THYROID CANCER, PREGNANCY, AND PREGNANCY LOSS. SHOULD ANY OF THESE THINGS BE TRIGGERING TO YOU AT THIS TIME, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO SIT THIS EPISODE OUT OR SEE OUR SHOW NOTES FOR HELPFUL RESOURCES.
