  • Summary

  • Possible Trigger Warnings:

    In this episode I talk about weight, eating disorders, binge eating, body shaming, social media, obesity and the correlation to health, chronic illness, pain attacks, pain medication, surgery, and mental health issues. This episode may be triggering for someone going through their own health journeys, or dealing with chronic illness. Everything said in this episode is a reflection of my own journey, and all words said are my personal opinions.

    Today's episode I wanted to upload as quickly as possible because I needed to get the words out now before I forgot them.  2020 didn't end well for me and 2021 wasn't off to the best start either when it came to my health. I talk about my first experiences with pain attacks (this is what I call them, not a medical diagnosis), not being able to find a diagnosis,  having no pain for many years, being diagnosed with Fatty Liver Disease, and how the pain attacks have recently returned. I chat about how I believe my weight has a lot to do with my poor health, and how I plan to lose weight (body fat and visceral fat) this year-not to look a certain way, but to feel healthier and stronger. Finally I talk about the recent Cosmo UK mag and the controversial article on wellness at any size, and how I was triggered by some of the recent posts doing the rounds on IG.

    This is a solo episode, so I'm a bit all over the shop trying to ease back into podcast life and not having that other person to bounce off of. I also seriously struggled with my pronunciation of some words! Word vomit got me good!
