Love Your Bodd
About This Show
We all have insecurities. You are not alone in your struggles. Love Your Bodd is a podcast focused on creating a dialogue around body image, specifically in the arts. In Love Your Bodd, Heather Boddy sits down with artists, activists, and health/fitness professionals to discuss body image, race, and how our insecurities make us who we are. The lack of representation in the arts and media is overwhelming. It's time to hold up a mirror to the industry and talk about how it can affect us. It's also time to hold a mirror up to ourselves and truly love that person we see staring back at us. Do you love your bodd?

63 - Becky S: Use Your Words | Anorexia, Exercise Addiction, & Asking for Help
7 days ago
"I think I just wanted people to see that I was in pain. I couldn't say that. I couldn't say, 'Hi, I'm Becky, I'm in pain. This is me being thinner than I should be so this is what pain means to me.'" - Becky S This week on Love Your Bodd we explore the importance of reaching out when you are in pain. Verbalizing your feelings can be incredibly difficult and can manifest in your mental health in all sorts of negative ways. For Becky, her inability to verbalize her pain led to an eating disorder. This week's guest Becky is incredibly open about her struggles with Anorexia, Exercise Addiction, Recovery, and most recently Bodybuilding. Listen to hear her talk about the winding road that is recovery and how lifting weights has both helped her recover but on the flip side, how competing in her first ever bikini competition brought back some of her disordered thinking. **Trigger Warning** This episode can be potentially triggering for anyone who is struggling with an eating disorder, has struggled with one in the past, or who is in recovery.
