The topic of this week's episode of the CWC podcast is self loathing, attaching self worth to our physiques, and the different coping mechanisms we use to distract ourselves. For years I desperately wanted to be ok with the way I looked, and I reached that point at the beginning of my transformation in 2017. I thought I had it all- until it all came crashing down when I had breast implant illness and could no longer workout, which had become my newest "addiction." I thought nobody would find me relevant if I wasn't in the gym hitting PRs. It took a long time to realize that my body does not dictate who I am as a person. I thought having a perfect physique would solve all of my problems, and (shocker) it didn't. I also am still in the process of letting go of what others think of my body, and this one is harder than I thought.
