In this episode, I reflect on my personal journey with body image and weight fluctuation, the wounding and repeating patterns I found that had me stuck there, and my recent transformation of “Reverse Dad Bod.” I share how I tapped into a new level of discipline and discernment in hopes that my story might inspire you to move towards what your soul might be asking of you, regardless if it’s with body image and weight or something else. We have limited time here on Earth… let today be the day when everything changes.
