How To Reclaim Your Life After Dramatic Weight Loss copy

Today we are exploring the idea of transformation through the lens of body-image and acceptance. Many of us embark on a journey to change our physical selves, with the promise of happiness, but true transformation is as much about changing a physical aspect of ourselves, as it is about accepting ourselves. In this episode, Sarah McDonald shares how carrying extra weight impacted her sense of self, and what losing 150 pounds meant for her health and wellbeing. She details what life was like before her weight loss, the catalyst for embarking on a health journey, and the inner healing that she experienced. Sarah offers her advice to listeners whose relationship with food is defined by negative thought patterns, and highlights that the mental transformation is as important as the physical transformation.

Coming Out & Living Your Truth

The popular understanding of sexuality is that it develops from a young age and solidifies as a person grows older. “Gay” and “straight” are treated as the default categories, with labels like “bisexual” or “asexual” often entirely forgotten. Although in recent years, more space has been made for people who identify with being gay, lesbian, bisexual, or queer later in life. Living our truth requires being with the people we love – and for some, this requires the courage to pursue a life they never imagined they would have. In this episode, I am joined by Ashleigh MacDonald – a professional dancer who identifies as lesbian having only been in heterosexual relationships. Today, she shares how she met her current partner Rosie, what inspired her to live her truth, and how she overcame hardship along the way.
