Episode 33: Body Positivity and Recovery in a Fat Body with Nia Patterson
In this episode, Tiffany meets to talk with Nia Patterson (@thefriendineverwanted) about what recovery has been like for her in a fat, marginalized body. She tells us about the discrimination she received in treatment and how her treatment team encouraged her to maintain a downward trending weight. She talks about how she overcomes those internalized thoughts and also attacks from trolls online. We also discuss body positivity and how it differs from self-love and positive body image. Nia also lays out some action steps for those of us wanting to challenge your internalized fatphobia and society's diet culture.
