Do you feel shame and/or want to hide your body?
I’ve been talking a lot lately about shame around our bodies and how we, as women, want to hide our bodies.
We often carry this deep feeling of being ashamed of our weight and that, in turn, makes us want to hide.
We want to cover up, wear baggy clothes, hide during intimacy and not allow anyone to see us at our current size.
This only perpetuates the shame and then makes us want to hide even more!
Are you constantly trying to hide your body?
Do you always look for ways you can disguise, camouflage or cover those parts of yourself that you hate?
Then listen in, my dear, because this is for you 🙂
BTW–I’m linking to a sample chapter in my book (click the book image or this link) where I write about a time in my life where I wanted to hide the most. I had gained 30/35 pounds and was asked if I was pregnant. It may be helpful if you need more support.
Thank you. I did not get a reply on intermittend fasting
Hi Welma–I sent you a response on Monday! I just forwarded it again in case you missed it 🙂

Hi Sandy–we definitely can be deeply impacted by people’s comments on our weight (I talk about this on another blog post below). This process is definitely small steps–we don’t leap out of our box of comfort all at once. It’s a “dipping our toe in the baby pool” type of thing 🙂
