    Let Go of Scale and Body Obsession, You Are Enough with Genevieve Angelson

    I’m talking with actor, writer and friend Genevieve Angelson. Two girls in eating disorder recovery taking their hearts out, putting them on the table, and seeing what happens. Spoiler alert: it’s a lot of laughs and a lot of truth. We get into learning from our slip ups - falling forward as Genevieve calls it, scale and body obsession and the beauty of learning how to just be enough. My heart is still full from this conversation - hope it can warm yours up too. Also if you want to read the unbelievably awesome article she wrote for Refinery 29 on having an ED during the pandemic, click here.
     
    Genevieve Angelson is an actor you might recognize from her roles in Flack, Good Girls Revolt and the upcoming Apple TV series The After Party.  She is also a regular contributor to Refinery 29 and Town and Country on the subjects of feminism, eating disorders, classical Hollywood and psychedelic drugs.

    Why Trauma is Even More Normal Than We Think with Kimberly Johnson

    Why Trauma is Even More Normal Than We Think with Kimberly Johnson

    I got my hands on an early copy of Kimberly Johnson’s new book, Call of the Wild, and basically lost my mind. So much insight into the cultural impacts on women and their bodies, why the most intense solution isn’t the best, and why trauma is even *more* normal than we think… and may be very much in the way of understanding what we’re really craving.
     
    Kimberly Johnson is a Sexological Bodyworker, Somatic Experiencing practitioner, yoga teacher trainer, postpartum advocate and single mom. She helps women heal from birth injuries, gynecological surgeries and sexual boundary violations. She is the author of early mothering classic The Fourth Trimester, as well as Call of the Wild: How We Heal Trauma, Awaken Our Own Power, and Use It for Good.
     
    If you want to know more about Kimberly, you can follow her on Instagram and Facebook, you can find her on her website, and listen to her podcast Magamama.
     
    I’m also obsessed with knowing all about you, so please follow (and DM!)  me on Instagram, Facebook and my website. We’re in this together and the journey is going to be so awesome.

    How Race and Sugar Addiction Intersect with Shun Foreman

    How Race and Sugar Addiction Intersect with Shun Foreman

    Shun Foreman is a pal of mine and a registered nurse. Perhaps most important, she’s a fierce advocate for sugar addiction and for improving the health of people and communities of color. Shun’s journey from nurse to activist is fascinating - all originating from a trip to the plantations of Sugarland, TX, where she had an aha moment that the sugar industry continues to keep her community enslaved. Shun shares how her personal journey in breaking up with sugar led her to start a movement called “Sugar Mode Off” as well as her Facebook group, Sisters Breaking the Bonds of Sugar, which is committed to helping save lives in communities of color. It’s an incredible story that I hope will leave you feeling hopeful and fulfilled.
     
    You can find out more and join the movement by following Shun on Instagram @sugarmodeoff.

    The Importance of Being Selfish with Dr. Brad Reedy

    The Importance of Being Selfish with Dr. Brad Reedy

    Dr. Brad Reedy is a friend, mentor, and pretty awesome therapist, public speaker, author, podcaster and beyond. Brad and I get real on craving authentic connection, why we shouldn’t fix other peoples’ problems, the art of being selfish, and why shame and guilt doesn’t work in healing. He’s the kind of person I can sit and listen to and nod my head with and feel super nurtured for hours - and he can make me cry at the drop of a hat.
     
    Dr. Brad Reedy is a Co-owner and Clinical Director of Evoke Therapy Programs, an experientially-based therapy program for adolescents, young-adults and families. He is also the Founder of Enlightening Relationships and provides parent coaching, couples therapy, and individual therapy.
     
    If you want to know more about Brad, which I hope you do, definitely check out his books The Audacity to Be You and The Journey of the Heroic Parent, his podcast Finding You and his website. 
     
    I’m also obsessed with knowing all about you, so please follow (and DM!)  me on Instagram, Facebook and my website. We’re in this together and the journey is going to be so awesome.

So Grateful!

I believe that things happen for a reason and the path that led me to finding Molly was a long one but so worth the wait! I’ve struggled my whole life with my weight. I’ve struggled with Bulimia. PTSD. Lipedema. But never in my wildest dreams did I realize I was addicted to sugar! I remember joking with my friends and family about being addicted to sugar but not knowing that it is a very real addiction. Since watching Molly on the “Quit Sugar Summit” with Mike Collins I have embraced this new life changing journey of finding my new life (at the age of 59) sugar and flour free. It’s beyond eye opening! Not only is my eating clean it has also put me in a spiritual journey too...it’s a win win ❤️. Molly has a way putting the truth out there. You can feel the love behind her words! Embrace it!
Forever Grateful!
