Fat person fearful of a camera

The most recent episode with Kristy Johnson is a great listen. I’ve worked with Kristy personally and can attest to everything she says in this episode. She does a great job of making you think about things other than how you look.

I’m a large person and have struggled my entire life with having my picture taken, and still do to an extent. I always look back on the pictures that Kristy took of me and my wife and can’t help but smile.

She’s a wonderful person and this was a great episode of the podcast

This is my favorite podcast!

I never miss an episode. The host is genuine and funny and so insightful! It’s such a gift to feel like you’re in the room with her and the diverse group of guests she interviews, speaking truth to experiences that mirror my own! Five stars!

Rabs126 ,

She’s real and full of love

Love love love this podcast. As someone who grew up usually the only plus size person in my family or friends, it’s nice to have a community and place where people understand. An awesome range of topics about self love 🍑💕
