Show Notes

How does a mother of “this many” children relate to her changing body and intimate relationship when she finds herself hung-up on the parts she finds hard to love?

In this episode we discuss:
• the double-whammy of having kids and grappling with our body aging
• comparing ourselves to narrow, learned and curated definitions of beauty
• The male gaze
• using body obsession as a way of avoiding deeper life questions
• moving towards awkwardness
• changing your story
• surrounding yourself with support for change
• creating a bridge between where you are and where you want to be
• recognising you can’t be controlled and ecstatic at the same time, choosing consciously what you want
• making a commitment to yourself about how you will speak about your own body
• cultivating the seductress and putting the mother to bed
