How do you deal with wanting to have a healthier relationship with food and your body, while simultaneously wanting to feel good in your body? Especially when healing disordered eating may involve gaining weight?
In today’s episode of the podcast, Sam discusses a social media influencer’s TikTok where she talks about just that.
This influencer recaps her experience going on a brand trip where she experienced body distress and discomfort all throughout the trip: getting out of breath walking up stairs, a massage chair not fitting her, and needing to leave a group pilates class early due to the class difficulty.
These experiences led this influencer to reflect on her experience gaining weight in eating disorder recovery.
We tend to look up to the social media influencers that we love, and you may have had these exact same thoughts. Sam gives her professional perspective on the situations that came up on this brand trip as these are common conversations that also come up in work with clients.
