What started with a social media post has become a movement, and now a podcast. On I Weigh, Jameela Jamil challenges society’s definition of worth through weight by asking different thought-leaders, performers, activists, influencers, and friends about how they are working through their past shames to find where their value truly lies. With hilarious and vulnerable conversations, I Weigh will amplify and empower diverse voices in an accessible way to celebrate progress, not perfection.

Love this podcast
Jameela is so thoughtful and curious during these interviews. I’ve loved all of them so far.
Also just wanted to say... you can be on ADHD medication and antidepressants at the same time 👍
Absolutely love everything you stand for! And love your guests but can you please let the guests speak more. Too often they give a quick answer and then you go back to talking about yourself. I love you and love hearing from you but want to hear the guests speak more
Breath of fresh air
I’m so grateful to have discovered this Podcast. Thank you Jameela for the honest conversations, for making me think and reflect and for introducing me to so many interesting people.
