Go Love Yourself

By Crowd Network

Welcome to Go Love Yourself! It’s the show where we’re all learning to love ourselves a little more 💖 Laura Adlington (left, 2020 GBBO Finalist) and her best friend Lauren Smith (right) grew up in the 90s and 00s when low rise jeans were high fashion, Bridget Jones was the poster fat girl and diet culture was rife. Now, we’re unlearning everything we’ve been taught about body image, acceptance and confidence, and this podcast takes you along for the ride! From self-love, to the other kind of self love (wink wink nudge nudge) we’re here to help you feel happier, more confident, and part of the best community on the internet. Join us EVERY TUESDAY as we talk about everything from diet culture to dating, mental health to social media, fashion and giving zero f***s about what people think..

Let's Talk About Money

"We're more comfortable talking about our intimate sex lives than we are talking about money." And that is why we're dedicating a full episode to money, finances, budgeting, debt... the lot of it. We are no experts (as you'll hear) so we invited along the fabulous Ellie from This Girl Talks Money, who guided us so wonderfully through the very complicated world of saving, treating ourselves and how to actually live our lives whilst still making savings. You can find Ellie here. And she's written a book which is your guide to all things financial wellbeing (basically, how to have a good time but still save).

S4 Ep16: Movies & Body Image

Ever wondered why so many of us grew up to hate ourselves? Wellll, movies are another one of those big culprits... We've got the obvious ones like Bridget Jones, and the fat joke heavy ones like Norbit, and DON'T EVEN GET US STARTED ON SHALLOW HAL! But, there's also the more innocuous ones, that we kind of do love. Like Mean Girls and Love Actually, which sadly are actually filled with toxic diet culture.

S4 Ep15: Mythbusting Contraception

Despite essentially half the world having to deal with it, contraceptives and women’s health are STILL taboo topics. But, with so many of us suffering in silence and having little access to reliable information, we need to talk about it. So in this week’s episode, we’re chatting to Dr Becky from The Lowdown, a website where people can add their reviews of different contraceptives, and find reliable information about their options. Or, as they like to call it, the Trip Advisor for your vagina. We myth busted everything from, being on the pill for “too long” and withdrawal bleeds, to the fertility awareness methods and the effectiveness of contraception in larger bodies.

S4 Ep11: Being Child-Free

Lovely listeners, this might be our most emotional episode yet. We've recently been speaking a bit more on the podcast about our experiences with being child-free, so you might already know that, for numerous reasons, neither of us have kids, despite wanting them. And from the amount of messages we get, we've realised how common this experience is, despite how isolating it can feel. So in this episode, we're getting real about our experiences, and where we're currently at with this. We're also chatting to the incredible Jody Day, aka the BEYONCE of Childlessness, about her advice on grief and what a childless future can look like.  p.s. as you'll hear in our chat, we're aware that child-less and child-free are meant to have different definitions. We're currently more comfortable using the term 'child-free' for ourselves, so that's what we're using in the episode title. It's absolutely not to take away from anyone who's child-free by choice, it's just where we're currently at in our "journey" xx   Resources: Gateway Women: https://gateway-women.com  World Childless Week: https://worldchildlessweek.net Jody's Book: https://gateway-women.com/book/  Show Notes Get your live show tickets here!

S4 Ep10: Office Nightmares and Opinionated Families

It's been a while since we spoke about dealing with other people's opinions, and because we get SO many requests for advice on it, we thought we'd revisit it. Our experiences with it have also changed since our last episode on it: Lauren's been shocked by the water cooler chat at her new job, and Laura's had to make the difficult decision to cut someone judgmental out of her life. So, in this episode, we're diving into our experiences, as well as responding to some of your stories about office nightmares and opinionated families.

S4 Ep8: Marriage, Motherhood, and Other “Milestones”

We’re coming up to our 35th birthday’s, and we can’t stop thinking about all the milestones society expects us to hit by this age. So, Lauren’s coming up to her 35th birthday. The age when everyone tells you your fertility “falls of a cliff”. And after growing up in a world that expects every woman to marry, have babies, and hit all kinds of milestones this birthday is hitting particularly hard. So in this week’s episode we’re talking about all the milestones we’ve felt pressured by, from motherhood to marriage, uni to career success, and money to mortgages. The pressures we put on ourselves can be unbearable, and hopefully this episode brings a bit of comfort to you. TW: this episode contains references to trauma, mental illness, and infertility.

S4 Ep7: Single Life and How to Love it

It's time for us "spinsters" to reclaim and learn to love our singlehood!!!  The pressure we face to be coupled up, and the assumption that your life isn't whole without a partner is INSANITY. So, in this episode we're chatting to author of 'A Single Revolution'. We get into all the best bits of single hood, how we got rid of the shame we felt (and got from others) about our lack of partner, and how to deal with those lonely moments that do creep in. So, if you’re single right now this really is an episode for you, and if you’re in a relationship this will be a really interesting insight into what the world is like for your single friends (and why you need to spot asking if we've found someone yet).

We had the BEST time seeing Barbie together, but the movie and all the hype around it really got us thinking... what kind of impact did Barbie really have on our body image? And how do we grapple with our love of the film, alongside our issues with Barbie?

S4 Ep5: The Lizzo Lawsuit

This isn’t an episode we ever thought we’d make. It’s also one we weren’t sure we would make, because it’s an ongoing legal situation and we can’t speculate about what is and isn’t true. But, the Lizzo lawsuit is all we’ve been able to think about for the last few days. It’s all we’ve seen on our instas, all we’ve seen on our newsfeeds. And the reality is, prior to now, we’ve personally put Lizzo on a pedestal and this is a bit of a wake up call. So, we needed to chat about our feelings around it all, because we know it’s something that’s really hit our community. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

S3 Ep18: The Reality of Weight Loss with PT Ben Carpenter

TW: this episode references weight loss, including intentional weight loss Sometimes it feels like we can't avoid conversations about weight loss, fitness, and health, so in today's episode we're becoming part of the conversation. To be honest, we were a bit nervous about recording this episode because of our own relationships with fitness and how triggering any mention of weight loss can be for lots of people, including us. But this episode was one of the few weight loss conversations we didn't come out of feeling triggered, and that's thanks to Ben: the no bullshit personal trainer who *shock* advocates for people in bigger bodies. He's one of the good ones and gave us a bit of hope! We chatted about some weight loss myths, like "eat less, move more" and 🚀SUPERFOODS🚀, the harm of commenting on people's bodies, the toxicity of (some parts) of the fitness industry, and had some really honest conversations about intentional weight loss.

Poor body image is such a difficult generational habit to break - our parents were force-fed diet culture even harder than we were, and we've all been conditioned for so long that certain comments about food, movement and health, are second nature. Plus, there's so much pressure and judgement about raising kids in the 'right' way. So, we're chatting to Molly about advice, body image literacy, language, and even how to talk to your nieces/nephews/friends kids.

S3 Ep12: ADHD and Mental Health

Did you know that men are 3x more likely than women to be diagnosed with ADHD? ADHD, or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, is a type of neurodivergence with symptoms that can include restlessness, trouble concentrating, and sensory issues. It can can have huge implications for your life, work, and mental health, but quite often it’s missed until people notice it themselves, and advocate for it with their GPS. It’s also something we’re seeing more of on TikTok, which is making some people worry that it’s being glamourised and turned into a bandwagon. But with diagnosis so hard to come by, especially in the UK, maybe there’s some value in self-diagnosis? Gemma Styles recently opened up about her experience with being diagnosed with ADHD as an adult, and we’re so pleased she’s joining us today to talk us through the process of being diagnosed, what this meant for her mental health/self-love, and how she’s adjusted to her diagnosis. 🧠If you think you might have ADHD, here are some resources to check out: ADHD UK - https://adhduk.co.uk Adult ADHD Self-Screening Tool: https://adhduk.co.uk/adult-adhd-screening-survey/ Diagnosis pathways for ADHD (UK) - https://adhduk.co.uk/diagnosis-pathways/ Videos about ADHD - https://adhduk.co.uk/videos/ ADHD and Mental Health - https://www.mind.org.uk/information-support/tips-for-everyday-living/adhd-and-mental-health/ ADHD Common Questions and Answers - https://www.adhdawarenessmonth.org/category/q-a/ ADHD Support Groups - https://www.ukadhd.com/support-groups.htm Virtual Body Doubling - https://www.flow.club Today's Sponsors: 💦 If you'd like to try ROAM, head to exploreroam.com and use code LOVE for 20% off site wide 🧠 If you'd to try BetterHelp, head to betterhelp.com/GOLOVE, where you can get 10% off your first month. 🎥If you'd like to watch this episode, we're on YouTube: youtube.com/@goloveyourselfpod 🙏 You can support us on Patreon for £1 a week to get ad free and early episodes: https://www.patreon.com/goloveyourself 🙏 Or support us on Apple Podcasts for £1 a week to get ad free and early episodes: https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast... 📧 If you'd like to contact us, you can email: golove@crowdnetwork.co.uk 📷 Or follow us on Instagram: @goloveyourselfpod ❤️ Join our Facebook group to connect with other listeners: https://www.facebook.com/groups/51272...

We've been doing this for a while now, and of course we still always get the "What about health?" questions. So, we thought it’d be good to chat a bit more about fatness, health, and BMI. A lot of you will know this already, but it’s one of the main ways that medical professionals determine health. So you’ll often go to the GP for a medical issue and be weighed, even if it’s something irrelevant like an ear infection. It’s often the thing that’s mostly focused on in terms of improving your health, and quite often it’s even used to deny care, with cuts offs for treatment for things like infertility if you’re over a certain BMI. So we know it has a huge impact on how our health is viewed and treated. But the more we looked into it, the more we realised how backwards this system is! It was never supposed to be used like this, yet here we are, letting it have a huge impact on our self worth and quality of care. So, let's chat about it. For more information about HAES, click here.

S3 Ep9: The Shocking History of Clothes Sizing

We KNOW how messed up clothes sizing is. We’re taught to equate our self-worth with what size knickers we wear, which is obviously not true. And the more we looked into it the more we realised that clothes sizes are actually bull**** - it’s all made up, it’s changed over time, and it’s never consistent. Basically, we’ve been set up to fail, and we wanted to do more of a deep dive into why exactly that is. So in today's episode we're SO excited to chat to fashion historian Nicole Rudolph about where clothes sizing came from, how it got so messed up, and how we can remove the emotional aspect of sizing. This one was a huge lightbulb moment for us, so we hope you enjoy!  Also a HUGE HUGE HUGE thank you to everyone who came to the live show - it honestly was one of the best nights (if not THE best) of our lives. We didn't have time to catch up about it before releasing this ep, so we'll have a proper catch up in next week's episode xxx If you’d like to try the Virtual Yoga Studio you can head to virtualyogastudio.com/love, thand for £15 you’ll get 3 months of access to daily classes that can be done at your own pace and from wherever you want. ✨NEW EPISODES EVERY TUESDAY, CLICK SUBSCRIBE TO GET THE EPISODES FIRST!✨ 🎥If you'd like to watch this episode, we're on YouTube: youtube.com/@goloveyourselfpod 🙏 You can support us on Patreon for £1 a week to get ad free and early episodes: https://www.patreon.com/goloveyourself 🙏 Or support us on Apple Podcasts for £1 a week to get ad free and early episodes: https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast... 📧 If you'd like to contact us, you can email: golove@crowdnetwork.co.uk 📷 Or follow us on Instagram: @goloveyourselfpod ❤️ Join our Facebook group to connect with other listeners: https://www.facebook.com/groups/51272...

S3 Ep8: Confidence and Geordie Shore

Jess Millichamp is an ICONIC pioneer in the British plus-size fashion world, and probably the first person we ever saw living their unapologetic best life on Instagram. So we've obviously been desperate to chat to her for ages, and here she finally is! She also had us in absolute stitches the whole time, and we're 10000% going to Newcastle for a night out (thoughts on Tequila Rose...?) We're also chatting about confidence, answering some of your questions, and getting a sneak peak at what goeson behind the scenes to make her incredible clothing line!!

S3 Ep7: Our Relationships with Exercise

Wellll it’s safe to say our relationships with exercise are NOT the best. We grew up feeling like exercise was a punishment, something we weren’t cut out for, or something to justify what we could eat. But after our episode with intuitive movement expert Tally Rye in season 1, we’ve been thinking more about how much movement could do for our mental health, relationships with our bodies, and just overall lives. Trying to improve our relationships with exercise is a really long and complicated process, but in this episode we wanted to give you an honest look at what that “journey” has been like for us so far. Plus, Lauren chats to us about trying her first ever dance class after putting it off for years!

S3 Ep6: Ozempic and Diet Culture Myths with AUBREY GORDON

We cannot believe it, but today we’re chatting to one of our absolute HEROES, fat activist Aubrey Gordon (@yrfatfriend). In this episode we’re myth-busting all things “wellness” and diet culture, including the ghost from the future who *apparently* popularised celery juice, and the viral weight-loss drug, Ozempic. Plus we chat about getting into fat activism, supporting marginalised bodies, and the new US guidance encouraging diets in children as young as 2. ✨NEW EPISODES EVERY TUESDAY, CLICK SUBSCRIBE TO GET THE EPISODES FIRST!✨ 🎥If you'd like to watch this episode, we're on YouTube: youtube.com/@goloveyourselfpod 🙏 You can support us on Patreon for £1 a week to get ad free and early episodes: https://www.patreon.com/goloveyourself 🙏 Or support us on Apple Podcasts for £1 a week to get ad free and early episodes: https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast... 📧 If you'd like to contact us, you can email: golove@crowdnetwork.co.uk 📷 Or follow us on Instagram: @goloveyourselfpod ❤️ Join our Facebook group to connect with other listeners: https://www.facebook.com/groups/51272... 🎭 And, we're doing a live show!

S3 Ep5: Anxiety and Panic Attacks

We've chatted about our anxiety a lot, but it's time to dive a bit deeper (Lauren's favourite 😉).  While people are talking more openly about anxiety, and we LOVE it, the differences between feeling anxious and having an Anxiety Disorder are often forgotten. Not to mention how often the more taboo bits, like intrusive thoughts and panic attacks, still face a bit of stigma. So this week we've recruited Anxiety Josh to chat us through the different types of anxiety disorders (including GAD, agoraphobia, panic disorder and OCD), how to recognise these, and how to help ourselves/our friends if they're struggling with anxiety. We absolutely loved chatting to Josh, and it couldn't have come at a better time considering what Anxious Aardvark's we are right now. Surprisingly, this episode was also HILARIOUS to record, and we learnt a bit about the kink world... Plus we catch up about our Valentine's Plans (or lack thereof😅)! ✨NEW EPISODES EVERY TUESDAY, CLICK SUBSCRIBE TO GET THE EPISODES FIRST!✨ 🎥If you'd like to watch this episode, we're on YouTube: youtube.com/@goloveyourselfpod 🙏 You can support us on Patreon for £1 a week to get ad free and early episodes: https://www.patreon.com/goloveyourself 🙏 Or support us on Apple Podcasts for £1 a week to get ad free and early episodes: https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast... 📧 If you'd like to contact us, you can email: golove@crowdnetwork.co.uk 📷 Or follow us on Instagram: @goloveyourselfpod ❤️ Join our Facebook group to connect with other listeners: https://www.facebook.com/groups/51272... 🎭 And, we're doing a live show!

S3 Ep4: Cutting Out “Hi Hun” Friends

It's not something we talk about enough, but making friends as an adult is HARD. You grow up seeing all these amazing friend groups on TV, but we promise it's not always like that, and you're not alone if you're feeling friendship anxiety. Plus, sometimes friendships aren't serving you and it's okay to cut them out!! We don't see movies about friendship breakups but seriouslyyyy they can be just as hard as romantic ones! So today, we're chatting all things friendships - why we feel anxious about them, how to find new pals, when/how to cut people out, and SO much more. Plus we react to some Am I the Asshole submissions on Reddit about other people's friendships, and oh my god it's the best thing ever (absolutely living for the drama of these!!!) ✨NEW EPISODES EVERY TUESDAY, CLICK SUBSCRIBE TO GET THE EPISODES FIRST!✨ 🎥If you'd like to watch this episode, we're on YouTube: youtube.com/@goloveyourselfpod 🙏 You can support us on Patreon for £1 a week to get ad free and early episodes: https://www.patreon.com/goloveyourself 🙏 Or support us on Apple Podcasts for £1 a week to get ad free and early episodes: https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast... 📧 If you'd like to contact us, you can email: golove@crowdnetwork.co.uk 📷 Or follow us on Instagram: @goloveyourselfpod ❤️ Join our Facebook group to connect with other listeners: https://www.facebook.com/groups/51272... 🎭 And, we're doing a live show!

S3 Ep3: The Reality of Binge Eating (with Therapist Sarah Dosanjh)

This is an episode we’ve been wanting to do for such a long time. We’ve spoken a bit about our experiences with overeating and our disordered relationships with food, but in this episode we’re speaking to former binge eater turned psychotherapist, Sarah Dosanjh, about the reality of binge eating disorder, learning to be kinder to ourselves, how to recognise it’s a problem for you, and how to take the first steps toward recovery. It very much became a therapy session for us, so a warning that this episode contains detailed references to eating disorders, particularly binge eating disorder. If you’re struggling with an eating disorder, please visit beateatingdisorders.org.uk. You can also find Sarah’s Youtube channel and podcast here.

Anyone else on 🌶spicy🌶 book tok or is it just Lauren? A good romance book written by a woman just hits different, but it can be really hard to find the right one (almost as hard as reading one in public🤣)!! So in this episode, Lauren’s telling us what we should look, which books to start with, and where we can find books with good fat rep. But will it be enough to convince Laura to try one out?! Plus, one of our favourite authors, Bethany Rutter, joins us to chat about the importance of representation, what it’s like in the publishing industry, and what it’s like writing spicy scenes… This episode is sponsored by BetterHelp.

S2 Ep23: What We’ve Learnt This Year

Ohhhh it's a spicy one. We both have polar opposite views about Harry and Meghan so we need to talk about! Plus it's the final episode of season 2 (😢), so we're getting all reflective about what we've learnt this year, how are relationships with food/movement are at the moment, and what we're hoping for in 2023, and most importantly, HOW we can get Lizzo on the pod. We're also chatting dream Christmas meals and getting WAY too excited about it. We'll be back with a new season in January! As long as we don't have another fight about the Royals...

S2 Ep21: Setting Boundaries & Calling Out Your Family

What are we meant to do when that random aunt starts spewing diet culture or asking us why we’ve put on weight?!?! Allll year round people feel like they’re allowed to comment on your body or offer unsolicited “advice” for your “health”. But this time of year, it can be so much harder because people close to you feel like they can make these types of comments, and you can’t avoid them because it happens at family events. Plus there’s the INEVITABLE “when are you having kids?” and comments about indulging now and dieting later.  So we NEED to talk about setting boundaries, calling out your family and dealing with Christmas diet culture. Plus, we chat about present ideas during the cost-of-living crisis, and taking the stress out of it all.

S2 Ep20: The Reality of Menopause

We've been wanting to talk about this forever because society LOVES to make us scared of ageing and the menopause. There's always been so much stigma around it that people end up suffering in silence. And it looks so different on everyone that people can end up feeling confused, alone, unsupported by doctors, and a bit like they're going mad. But menopause is completely normal, there is help out there, and you're not alone. So in this episode, we're chatting to the fabulous Vickie aka INPOlife about her experience getting a hysterectomy at 40, fighting for 5 years to get a menopause diagnosis, and what living with menopause is like for her. Plus, Laura is absolutely convinced that Vickie was on Eastenders, and..... WE HAVE A HUGE ANNOUNCEMENT!

We’re flying solo this week because we neeeeed to catch up about Lauren entering her sexy era. I mean, did you SEE that thirst trap?!? And if you’ve been listening for a while, you’ll know this is a huge shift from a few months ago. So we need to know what’s changed and WHAT HER SECRET IS! We both kind of broadly represent two types of listener - the single one entering her hoe season, and the one in a long-term marriage who’s not even thinking about feeling sexy. So hopefully there’s lots you guys can relate to as we unpack it alll, and some helpful tips if you want to find your inner sexy goddess!

S2 Ep18: PCOS and the Taylor Swift Controversy

We're finally doing one of our most requested episodes, and we're joined by plus size and PCOS content creator ThatGirlSare to talk all things Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. It's something that affects 1 in 10 women, but doctors are constantly undermining people's symptoms because "pain is normal for girls" or "all your issues are caused by your weight". And even if you get a diagnosis, there's no treatment and support is limited, so in this episode we're talking through the reality of life with PCOS, diagnosis, symptoms, dealing with patronising doctors, and normalising body hair. Plus we have a much needed catch up Lauren's sexy instagram post, Disney's first plus-size female protagganist, and the controversy around Taylor Swift's Anti-Hero music video...

S2 Ep17: Being fat, disabled and CONFIDENT

Disabled isn't a bad word, okay?! Fat disabled people are still treated as second class citizens and we need to talk about it. Accessibility in the UK is still shockingly bad and disabled people are constantly facing extra judgement from ableist people.  And yes, there have been massive improvements to plus size representation, but sticking in a white able-bodied plus size women and a pretty disabled woman in the corner of a campaign lineup isn't good enough.  So today, we're chatting to disabled fashion blogger, FromSarahLex about the reality of being a wheelchair user, how doctors have treated her because of her weight, and how she's learnt to be a confident bad bitch 💅. Sarah is the absolute best and somehow managed to match Lauren's energy?!?! Who knew that was possible... Anyway, we're besties now and Sarah may be building a sidecar onto her wheelchair so her and Lauren can go around town talking to strangers... Learn more about your ad choices.

THERE'S FINALLY A BOY IN THE ROOM! We know how much diet culture has messed with us, but we've never actually spoken to a man about how it's impacted them*. So in this episode we're chatting to Laura's good friend and Masterchef The Professionals star, Aaron Middleton. There's sooooo much about lad dynamics that we just don't get, so it's a FASCINATING insight into all things banter/ripping into your mates, talking to your friends about body image, and our different experiences with diet culture. *obviously Aaron can't talk for literally all men (imagine how scary it'd be to have all men ever on the pod ?!) and we can't talk for all women so this is only one perspective and isn't representative of all men/male friendship groups! We also don't talk about the experience of NB or trans people because we can't speak to those, but would love to cover that with guests in future xx Learn more about your ad choices.

We chat about everything from seasonal depression and diet culture habits we're struggling to break, to how Lauren's dating is going and what it's like for Laura to watch Bake Off.

S2 Ep12: The Scary Reality of Weight Loss TV

Unfortunately, we'll all remember the boom of weight loss shows in the 2000s. From the Biggest Loser to Supersize vs Superskinny, these shows harmed our relationships with our bodies and made us think that we had to crash diet. They're the epitome of diet culture and the toxic 'eat less move more' attitude. And the reality is, they usually didn't even work, and sometimes harmed people's bodies. So this week, after we rant about our own experience with weight loss shows, we chat to our friend Sarah LeBrocq, who was on a weight loss show in 2013, about her experience and how it turned her into an obesity advocate.

We've been wanting to talk about sex FOREVER, but as you know we are very much not experts...

Fashion might seem a bit frivolous, especially because we always say the way you look is the least interesting thing about you. But it’s so hard to actually let go of beauty standards - we’re unlearning a lifetime of shit here! And sometimes wearing nice clothes that you love can really kick start your confidence. But there are soooo many “rules” we’ve been taught we should follow when it comes to fashion. And wtf even is “flattering?! We’re still learning how to navigate it all, and trying fight diet culture while still being confident and comfortable in our own bodies. So in this episode we’re having an open and honest chat about how to break fashion “rules”, whether it’s ok to still be stuck in the “flattering” mindset, and whether we actually really like floral midi dresses ?!?

But luckily for you, we have an editor so this episode is just the funny bits/the bits that actually make sense... This was so much fun to record and we ADORE them with all of our hearts. Hope you love this one too xxx TW: references to infertility Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

S2 Ep7: Let's Talk About Body Privilege

The way you look is the least interesting thing about you, BUT it's still a huge factor in how the rest of the world views you and treats you, so it's time for us to talk about body privilege. It can be awkward and uncomfortable, but it's such an important topic so in this episode we're chatting about the spectrum of body privileges, the history of the body positivity and fat liberation movements, and our own privileges. We are by no means experts - just people who have done research, are constantly learning, and are trying to make an inclusive community. So there's no shame at all if you're also still learning and feel a bit strange thinking about privilege when we live in a world where we're all made to hate our bodies. Feel free to just listen with an open mind, and remember that recognising body privilege does not take away from your own struggles. If you'd like to do more of your own research, these resources are a good place to start: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1uaKmxbeZCwhp4tfhX0b8BzpqPfOXggDRkydeRu8D_d0/edit?usp=sharing  And if you'd like to come our meet up in Brighton, check out the event on Facebook!

S2 Ep6: Learning to Love the Outdoors

Outdoor activities are so bloody fun and the outdoors is for EVERYONE, no matter what you look like, but it doesn't always feel like it.

But Every Body Outdoors are a brilliant group who are trying to improve clothing, gear and representation for larger and plus sized bodies in the outdoors movement in the UK. So today we're chatting to one of their founders, Steph Wetherell, about getting into hiking, what it did for her relationship with her body, the reality of the outdoor clothing industry, and so much more!

S1 Ep18: Our Mental Health Stories

So here's the part of self-love that people don't always want to talk about. But mental health is SO important. Because when you don’t love yourself, your mental health can completely go to shit. When you live in a bigger body you’re basically taught to change yourself or even hate yourself. And when you've got poor mental health, it's easy to tell yourself you've failed. We get it. We both have shitty mental health sometimes, and we're ready to talk about it. So we hope this episode brings you a bit of comfort and makes you realise you're not alone. We love you so much and we promise it gets better. TW: This episode contains references to suicide and suicidal thoughts. If you think this episode might be triggering for you, please skip it.

S1 Ep13: Why We Broke Up With Slimming Clubs

Nothing screams diet-binge cycle quite like slimming clubs! We've both been to diet clubs close to 10 times each, so we know what it's like. They might work for a handful of people, but for the rest of us, they're TOXIC and destroy our relationships with food. They place moral value on foods, shame us if we put on weight, and charge us a fortune in the meantime. We don't know what the answer is, but we know our experiences with slimming clubs have impacted our relationships with our bodies for the worse - and we know we're not the only ones.

S1 Ep12: Intuitive Movement with Tally Rye

We don't know about you, but exercise has ALWAYS been made to feel like punishment.  Like the only way we can be worthy is by eating less and moving more. Exercise can be incredible for mental health and stress relief, but it's hard to untangle that from allll the diet culture bullshit. Tally Rye created intuitive movement, inspired by the concept of intuitive eating. It's all about re-learning what it is your body actually wants, as opposed to what you think you should be doing, according to diet culture.

S1 Ep2: Our Stories

This week, we want to tell you a bit more about our stories so you can understand where we’re coming from when we talk about fighting diet culture and growing to love ourselves. We’re both now plus size, but we have very different stories. Laura grew up bigger and has had a problem with comfort eating for as long as she can remember.  Meanwhile, Lauren grew up smaller, but was made self conscious of her body from a young age, and gained weight later in life as a result of trauma.  In a culture rife with diet-culture and fatphobia, we all have similar experiences of low self-esteem and problematic relationships with our bodies and food. But we’ve also all been taught to hide it and feel ashamed. We're here to stop that, and hopefully, you can find some comfort in our stories today!
