Session Overview: Self-Acceptance & Weight Loss

Are you afraid that self-acceptance means you’ll never lose weight? Does self-acceptance mean giving up?

So many of us want to feel good in our skin AND want to lose a few pounds. Are these two things incompatible and mutually exclusive? Or is it possible for them to exist side by side? For both things to be true?

Self-acceptance is a hot topic. At best, it just means different things to different people; at worst, it’s completely misunderstood. In this discussion, Karen, Mara, Christie and Shauna will introduce the concept of self-acceptance and facilitate a meaningful discussion about the relationship between self-acceptance, body image, health at every size, and weight loss. The goal will be for each person who participates to walk away from the discussion with a personal definition of what self-acceptance means and how to apply it in their own lives.
