Hearing Our Own Voice
Our cultural obsession with weight and attaching weight to health and worthiness is damaging to us as individuals and as a collective.
Melissa believes and speaks about how it is especially damaging for those of us who are constantly pushed out into the margins because of race, gender, ability, size, or sexuality. It can really complicate our sense of identity, wholeness, and belonging. She has been searching for ways to redefine wellness through a process of unlearning, relearning, and telling our own stories.
This podcast centers conversations about all of these things with Black health and wellness professionals and fat activists who have taken a weight-inclusive approach to their work. My goal is to uncover the lies and myths that get sold to us, but more importantly I want us to explore how we can filter out the cultural noise and begin to hear our own voice .
There's so much freedom, and truth, and joy, and fun in these conversations. And I'm delighted to share this with you.
