Aaron and Glenys talk about weight. The global pandemic has put many people in a panic about changing weight. For those recovering from EDs and disordered eating, weight gain is often necessary and a part of healing, but hearing weight gain stigmatized constantly can feel like a huge setback. In this episode, our hosts talk about how they support their clients in normalizing weight gain and taking the focus of healing off of weight and put it more on supportive self-care. They also discussed how weight gain IS normal not only in healing but over a life time for most people. How do we help people navigate the mental and physical discomfort they feel in a changing body? Why is going back to “real” clothing such a pain?! Aaron and Glenys also recount (and cringe over) their pasts when they were steeped in diet culture and promoting weight loss, and how we can meet those feelings with compassion and have gratitude for the community they found in HAES® that allowed them to evolve at their own pace.
