My body image flipped when I got pregnant and had a baby. Women's bodies change. I struggled at first, but I turned to the instagram body positivity community, [and began finding my own voice]. I resonated with the messages of self love.Since then, I've been trying to explore the body-love concepts, and infuse that into my teaching.
Coworkers were commenting on how amazing I looked and how "healthy" I must be because I could turn down food.I had never felt sicker.My symptoms weren't going away, I was having constant anxiety, and I felt completely disconnected from my body.I started to get pissed off when someone would say, "you're so lucky you can't have dairy," as if it was a positive sign of control. It helped me to realize how messed up the way we talk to other people [about their bodies] is.
