    Through the modelling and clothes-making process, [Mettamade] cares about what I think and how I feel in the clothes — that I feel good in them. When else do you get the opportunity to have that kind of relationship with the people who are making your clothes?

    I'm mindful about not engaging in diet talk, or when I notice people are moving/exercising for the wrong reasons, I won't engage with that either. I've curated my social media so that it's all body- and fat-positive people on there. I surround myself with amazing people. It's really the support system that helps make the [body liberation] movement [possible].

    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.
