    #176 Part 2: What My Clients Are Saying (You, On Fire Spotlights)

    It's a special episode because in this 2 part episode I’m speaking to 4 incredible women, whom I’m willing to bet will have pieces of their story resonate with you. These are 4 of my clients who worked with me during the You, On Fire program and they are here to show you that it is possible to go from obsessing over food and hating your body, to no longer fretting about your reflection and having so much more confidence in who you are outside of how you look. These women go on to be role models to their kids, they have more time so they volunteer or become advocates for social justice, they ask for a raise and a promotion at work, they speak up to their medical professional about HAES or they pursue a new calling. And in all of these little ways, they start to leave a different kind of mark on this world and change the culture. To enroll in You, On Fire go to summerinnanen.com/youonfire

Incredibly helpful

I learn so much from this podcast in every episode, and I especially appreciate the diversity of the guests and the frank discussions about fat acceptance, privilege, and the problems with mainstream body positivity. Thank you, Summer!

This Podcast Gets Me Through

Summer brings light to the dark parts of myself that insist on telling me over and over again that I am not good enough. I listen to this podcast usually while riding my bike and by the end of my bike ride I am renewed. Her insights and those of her many accomplished guests remind me of who I really am...unique, beautiful, and perfect just as I am. Thank you Summer for being a pioneer and a fearless rebel. You really have made such a positive impact on my recovery and on my life :)
