[Body Confidence Summit] Dana Falsetti: Proof That Body Confidence Has Nothing to Do With Your Size

So you’re stuck in a rut of self-loathing. You’re too fat to go to the gym, too puffy to put on a nice outfit, and too fed up with feeling like crap to bother investing a little loving time and attention into self-care. So you sit and crash on the couch with another bag of salty potato chips. The vicious cycle of self-loathing keeps you stuck—but mostly in your head, pinned down and paralyzed by the idea that your body is an insurmountable barrier to being, doing and having a life you love. Here to take that notion out to the trash and kick your assumptions along with it is Dana Falsetti.

    A very valuable lesson, Dana, – that our body size or shape should not stop us from succeeding in what we choose to do

    This interview is bad ass!!! As a counselor and yoga teacher who has experienced BED and body hatred, I feel inspired and wise as to how this all works!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!

    I feel like she wrote my book! I can relate to so much of this except I did finally start losing my weight after I improved my life. I can relate to how she felt, how she looked at herself and food, all of it! Many other woman out there will relate to this story as well.
