A Juicy Convo About Fat Activism [feat. Victoria Welsby]
The SociEATy Podcast
Victoria Welsby is, in a word, a superstar! They are a world-leading expert on body image and confidence and a speaker and author, and they have an incredibly amazing and inspirational story to share, having gone from being homeless with low self-esteem and being in abusive and difficult relationships to being who they are today – a courageous and confident fat activist! They join me in this episode of The SociEATy Podcast to discuss being a fat activist and what that means, touching upon various topics such as neutralizing the word fat, advice on how to work toward accepting our own bodies, the misconceptions surrounding links between weight and health, and so much more! Victoria also explains their Body Love Road Map, which you can download for free here! As per usual, Victoria closes by providing a couple of actionable tips that you can put into action today in order to work toward body acceptance! They encourage us to ask ourselves why gaining weight is such a fear and to then take appropriate action. Educating ourselves is important but is not enough. We also need to take action or else education alone isn't going to work. I am so grateful to Victoria for having been on the podcast to share their remarkable and inspirational story and for giving such fantastic advice! They are so great at breaking things down into practical steps, and I know that their insight will be helpful to you! Be sure to check out their website and their podcast as well!
