Moms frantically dieting before a big event (something must be wrong if Mom feels like needs to change her body. Note to young impressionable self: Dieting is important, changing your body is important).</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">And it came fast and furious at you with what you watched in the media and in magazines.  Where are all the heroines with varicose veins, warts, alopecia and cellulite?  Name all the movies you saw as a kid where the larger or older women were courted by the seemingly perfect masculine heart throb.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">And it came from our peers.  How many times did you complement your friend(s) only to have her (them) deflect that complement and come back with a reason why what you just said isn’t true.  </span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">While we all claim to want to have self-confidence we also fear being TOO confident (arrogant) and relishing too much in our beauty.  Essentially, we can’t win.  Apparently someone is giving out awards for being humble to the extreme and shaking off words of admiration.  How can we actually find that sweet spot of pure, simple body love that is just for ourselves with nothing to prove to anyone else?  </span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">There is a poignant article from CNN about the surprising things hospice workers hear from their dying patients.  In addition to the regrets over not spending enough time loving, traveling, or pursuing their passions, one thing stuck out most of all: They regretted not appreciating the fact that they had an amazing bodily vessel to live out their lives.  They felt deep sadness at having to leave that magnificent and underappreciated body.  They wished they had <a href=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/6-ways-to-embody-your-body\">embodied their bodies</a> more while they could.  They recognized all the incredible things their bodies could do: house babies, make love, go swimming, dance.  And most of all they felt grief that they would have to leave that corporeal house with all of those glorious sensations.  One woman was quoted as saying:</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><em><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">“I know I’m supposed to hate my body. (sic) </span><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Everyone told me -- my family, my school, my church. When I got older, magazines and salesgirls and boyfriends (told me), even if they didn\'t say so out loud. The world\'s been telling me for 75 years that my body is bad. First for being female, then for being fat and then for being sick. But the one thing I never did understand is, why does everyone else want me to hate my body? What does it matter to them?\" (source:</span><a href=\"http://www.cnn.com/2014/10/16/health/dying-regret-body-hate/index.html\"><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">http://www.cnn.com/2014/10/16/health/dying-regret-body-hate/index.html</span></a><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">)</span></em></p>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">What does it matter to them indeed.  It’s time to pull the veil around why women and girls feel such an ardent desire to change their bodies and not accept themselves as they are.  Without placing the blame on one entity entirely I have found that it has to do, in part, with the way our societal social and power structures have been set up where the patriarchy relies on women to stay small (figuratively).  If women and girls are too busy overexercising, counting calories and obsessing about food (or lack thereof) then we certainly can’t find the time necessary to run for office, become a engineer or write a <a href=\"https://www.amazon.com/Body-Image-Blueprint-Go-Self-Reverence-ebook/dp/B071H4F3ZZ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1511898495&amp;sr=8-1&amp;keywords=the+body+image+blueprint\">best-selling novel</a> with the same gusto, drive and passion than that woman who is steeped in self-love, self-worth and deep unrelenting confidence in her interior and exterior can.  I am not saying this is conscious, vindictive or sinister.  </span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">No, it’s way way below the surface where people often don’t explore.  It shows up in subtle ways that gets internalized early and often and which can become so powerful that it’s hard to wake up from.  It\'s not about conscious and willful shunning of diverse women of all shapes, colors, weights and ages. (although that does happen regularly) but about the underlying fear of losing one’s standing in society, of insecurity of shifting values and beliefs and the fear of being usurped.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Plainly stated, women are still not willing to fully step into their power, beauty and confidence.</span>\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">We are just now slowly starting to see a seismic shift with this.  This is certainly a watershed moment surrounding the #metoo movement and the insurgence of the body-positive world which is active, brazen and growing every day.  Women are starting to become “woke” to these power structures and are taking action.  </span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">These actions show up in myriad ways including reporting inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace without fear of retribution, claiming high-profile and powerful positions in virtually all fields and career paths and “leaning in”.  </span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">It also shows up by giving the middle finger to dieting for good.</span></h1>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">We used to burn bras in the 60’s to rebel and reveal our power.  Now we’re burning bridges and not afraid of those repercussions.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">We all can rightfully own our beauty and self-worth.  </span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">I give you permission to have the audacity of body-love, with no shame, no remorse and no apologizing.  </span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Post those selfies, savor that delicious food, and relish in everything your gorgeous body is capable of feeling and doing.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Do you agree?  Post your comments and share this article far and wide.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<div style=display:none;><img src=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/audacity.png\"></div>\r\n\";s:10:\"post_title\";s:25:\"The Audacity of Body Love\";s:12:\"post_excerpt\";s:0:\"\";s:11:\"post_status\";s:7:\"publish\";s:14:\"comment_status\";s:4:\"open\";s:11:\"ping_status\";s:4:\"open\";s:13:\"post_password\";s:0:\"\";s:9:\"post_name\";s:18:\"audacity-body-love\";s:7:\"to_ping\";s:0:\"\";s:6:\"pinged\";s:56:\"\nhttp://jennyedencoaching.com/6-ways-to-embody-your-body\";s:13:\"post_modified\";s:19:\"2017-11-28 16:22:04\";s:17:\"post_modified_gmt\";s:19:\"2017-11-28 21:22:04\";s:21:\"post_content_filtered\";s:0:\"\";s:11:\"post_parent\";i:0;s:4:\"guid\";s:36:\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/?p=2074\";s:10:\"menu_order\";i:0;s:9:\"post_type\";s:4:\"post\";s:14:\"post_mime_type\";s:0:\"\";s:13:\"comment_count\";s:1:\"2\";s:6:\"filter\";s:3:\"raw\";}i:1;O:7:\"WP_Post\":24:{s:2:\"ID\";i:1580;s:11:\"post_author\";s:1:\"1\";s:9:\"post_date\";s:19:\"2017-02-21 10:50:30\";s:13:\"post_date_gmt\";s:19:\"2017-02-21 15:50:30\";s:12:\"post_content\";s:4268:\"<img class=\"aligncenter size-full wp-image-1581\" src=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/timothy-meinberg-136258-1.jpg\" alt=\"this is us\" width=\"3264\" height=\"2448\" />\r\n\r\nFor those of you who watch the popular, maudlin and addictive show, \"This is Us\", know that you need hankies a plenty when sitting down to watch an episode.  Each story arc is beautiful and relatable in its own way.\r\n\r\nAs an eating psychology coach and body image mentor though, you can imagine that the character of beautiful Kate has me in a complete tizzy.\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">There is a poignant scene early on in the series that felled me emotionally on a deep and visceral level.  I won’t be spoiling the show by recounting this scene but will speak about it because it truly encapsulates for me what so many young girls go through.  What was most heartbreaking about the scene was that we, the audience, the millions of people watching, lay witness to this character understanding for the first time that her version of herself: The confident, beautiful and self-possessed person she naturally saw in herself was different than those around her.   The character, Kate, is a beautiful overweight woman, living in LA and navigating her chronic dieting world.  She is trying to find herself, her career and her connections to other people including her relationship with her needy twin brother. Through flashbacks we are exposed to her journey from a happy, innocent and oblivious young (and larger) girl to a insecure, body-loathing chronic dieter.  This particular arc of the show obliterates me every time because of the nuanced vulnerability we see in her body-image descent.  Every time I see her storylines I want to reach into the TV screen, hug her, and tell her how beautiful she is.</span>\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">In this particular scene, Kate is roughly 10 years old and takes a trip to the local public pool with her family.  She happily and innocently wears a bikini to the pool, despite being larger than many of the other kids and refuses to bring a t-shirt, as her parents quietly plead her to do before leaving.   Her parents are kind and care deeply about her but tacitly judge her or at the very least worry that she will be judged by others simply because of her size.   Her “friends” at the pool snicker at her and ultimately send her a note saying they are embarrassed to play with her unless she covers up.  Kate sulks sadly on her lounge chair and her parents find the note, leaving her loving dad give her a pep-talk and to lend her his t-shirt.  But, it\'s too late.  The damage has been done.  This was and will always be a seminal moment in her identity.  She was body-shamed into covering up.  We see, through these flashbacks, the very moment that defined Kate and so many of us can relate because we’ve had similar experiences too.  Our understanding about how shame around our bodies starts to unfold is witnessed before our very eyes through Kate\'s story.</span>\r\n\r\nHow many of us had moments like this and can speak to defining moments in our body image?  I am guessing many.  That this type of body-shaming remains today, 40 years after this flash-back, in this fictional show made in 2016 tells us how far we have to go in the movement of body positivity and health at every size.\r\n\r\nAs long as unattainable body standards remain front and center in our purview in media, magazines and in our role models, it will become increasingly hard to unshackle ourselves from dieting culture and mentality.  I applaud \"This is Us\" by giving us a personal and upfront, and unvarnished example of the very trajectory many girls face or faced growing up.  That there is no easy solution that the show resolves is ok.\r\n\r\nWe just need to continue to have the conversation.\r\n\r\nWould you be willing to share a bathing suit story you have related to your body image as a child or adult?  We all seem to have them.  Comment below.\r\n\r\nAnd if you\'re interested in learning more about healing body image techniques, watch my free training below.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<div style=\"display: none;\"><img src=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/exercise-challenge-2.png\" /></div>\";s:10:\"post_title\";s:33:\"The Character of Kate: This is Us\";s:12:\"post_excerpt\";s:0:\"\";s:11:\"post_status\";s:7:\"publish\";s:14:\"comment_status\";s:4:\"open\";s:11:\"ping_status\";s:4:\"open\";s:13:\"post_password\";s:0:\"\";s:9:\"post_name\";s:17:\"character-kate-us\";s:7:\"to_ping\";s:0:\"\";s:6:\"pinged\";s:0:\"\";s:13:\"post_modified\";s:19:\"2017-02-20 16:45:22\";s:17:\"post_modified_gmt\";s:19:\"2017-02-20 21:45:22\";s:21:\"post_content_filtered\";s:0:\"\";s:11:\"post_parent\";i:0;s:4:\"guid\";s:36:\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/?p=1580\";s:10:\"menu_order\";i:0;s:9:\"post_type\";s:4:\"post\";s:14:\"post_mime_type\";s:0:\"\";s:13:\"comment_count\";s:1:\"0\";s:6:\"filter\";s:3:\"raw\";}i:2;O:7:\"WP_Post\":24:{s:2:\"ID\";i:1770;s:11:\"post_author\";s:1:\"1\";s:9:\"post_date\";s:19:\"2017-04-25 09:20:32\";s:13:\"post_date_gmt\";s:19:\"2017-04-25 13:20:32\";s:12:\"post_content\";s:4853:\"<h1><img class=\"aligncenter wp-image-1772 size-full\" src=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/4-ways-to-feel-good-in-your-skin-right-now.png\" alt=\"\" width=\"800\" height=\"800\" /></h1>\r\n<h1>Do you struggle with feeling amazing in your skin each day?</h1>\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Women and men often feel that the only way they will feel good their bodies is if they change or transform it.  We are always on the hunt for the next diet, beauty product or service that will help us shape shift into a size, shape or style that is different than what we are right now.  In living this way, we are forced into believing that we will be happier, more satisfied and confident if only we lost weight, gained weight, got rid of those varicose veins, fill in the blank.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">While it’s true that sometimes these measures make us feel better about ourselves, it’s often a pyrrhic victory as aging and changing life circumstances have us face the next problem with our appearance that needs to be fixed.  And the next, and the next….</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Do you see the problem here? </span></h1>\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">What if we were to instead look for ways to feel good in our skin right now, as it is, imperfections and all?  It is often said that depression lives in the past, anxiety in the future but bliss is right now. This may seem like a lofty goal to you right now and one that does not feel achievable or acceptable.  I get it.  But let’s use these 4 examples below as ways to get started and plant a seed that can helpfully set you on a path for a glorious garden of body-positivity, love and acceptance.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1>1. Practice mindfulness.</h1>\r\nSit with yourself and notice the places in your body that feel content, alive, vibrant.  Notice where you may be feeling discomfort, pain or where you tend to direct your negative self-talk towards.  Acknowledge all of it and breathe through the thought bubbles that arise.  All good relationships are based in trust, communication and respect.  By just allowing yourself to be.  By noticing your breath, and the subtle ways our bodies speaks to us, we can begin slowly begin to build more trust and respect for the incredible vessels we are lucky to have.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1>2. Explore bodies of water.</h1>\r\nOur bodies feel different in water than on land.  Enjoy the sense of lightness and expansiveness in various pools, oceans, lakes and hot tubs.  Notice the sensual aspect of being in water.  Getting in touch with our different senses be it smell, sight, touch, can bring us gratitude and awe about the ways we can experience pleasure and comfort in our skin no matter it’s size or shape.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1><span style=\"font-weight: 400;\"><strong>3. Do something you absolutely love to do and brings you joy.</strong>  </span></h1>\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Horseback riding, improv, pottery, poetry writing.  Whatever. When we can pursue or passions and express ourselves creatively or in a way that feels truly aligned with us, we can move towards balance and be who we are supposed to be irrespective of our exterior packages.  It’s a way of tapping into what lights up our souls which can far transcend our physical bodies.</span>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1>4. Splurge and buy clothing with materials that feel soft, comfortable and/or luxurious.</h1>\r\nBuy clothing that fits your own particular shape and size, as it is right now.  Don’t pay attention to the size or number on the label.  Don’t get into stories about how you used to fit into x but now you lament that you only fit in y.   I truly understand the grief and the mourning of a certain size or number, but it is just that.  A number.  Its an external, subjective measure that we human beings have ascribed meaning to.  Nothing more, nothing less.  So, go into that store, and buy what feels good on YOUR skin and on your own beautiful body, right now.  And then go strut your stuff!\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">Tell me.  When are the times that you feel most comfortable in your skin?  What will you do today to feel good in it today?</span>\r\n<span style=\"font-weight: 400;\">And don’t forget to order your copy (or 10 for friends?) of my #1 Amazon Best Selling and International best selling book, <a href=\"http://bit.ly/bodyimagebook\">The Body Image Blueprint</a>, today! </span>\r\n\r\n<img class=\"aligncenter size-medium wp-image-1744\" src=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/FRONTcover_final-1-198x300.jpg\" alt=\"\" width=\"198\" height=\"300\" />\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<div style=\"display: none;\"><img src=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/4-ways-to-feel-amazing-in-your-skin-right-now.png\" /></div>\";s:10:\"post_title\";s:42:\"4 ways to feel good in your skin right now\";s:12:\"post_excerpt\";s:0:\"\";s:11:\"post_status\";s:7:\"publish\";s:14:\"comment_status\";s:4:\"open\";s:11:\"ping_status\";s:4:\"open\";s:13:\"post_password\";s:0:\"\";s:9:\"post_name\";s:31:\"4-ways-feel-good-skin-right-now\";s:7:\"to_ping\";s:0:\"\";s:6:\"pinged\";s:0:\"\";s:13:\"post_modified\";s:19:\"2017-04-25 09:56:08\";s:17:\"post_modified_gmt\";s:19:\"2017-04-25 13:56:08\";s:21:\"post_content_filtered\";s:0:\"\";s:11:\"post_parent\";i:0;s:4:\"guid\";s:36:\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/?p=1770\";s:10:\"menu_order\";i:0;s:9:\"post_type\";s:4:\"post\";s:14:\"post_mime_type\";s:0:\"\";s:13:\"comment_count\";s:1:\"0\";s:6:\"filter\";s:3:\"raw\";}i:3;O:7:\"WP_Post\":24:{s:2:\"ID\";i:1708;s:11:\"post_author\";s:1:\"1\";s:9:\"post_date\";s:19:\"2017-04-08 15:37:21\";s:13:\"post_date_gmt\";s:19:\"2017-04-08 19:37:21\";s:12:\"post_content\";s:3501:\"<a href=\"http://bit.ly/bodyimagebook\"><img class=\"aligncenter size-full wp-image-1695\" src=\"http://jennyedencoaching.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/FRONTcover_final.jpg\" alt=\"The Body Image Blueprint\" width=\"1827\" height=\"2775\" /></a>\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n<h1>Do you need the Body Image Blueprint?</h1>\r\nThank you for your support and interest in my debut book, The Body Image Blueprint: Your Go-To Guide for Radical Self-Reverence!\r\n\r\nThis body of work is the culmination of my life\'s work both personally and professional.

6 Steps to Feel Bad-ass in your Bathing-suit this Summer:

This post is my loving response to the 60+ women and men I interviewed for my book, The Body Image Blueprint.  For when I asked the question, “when do you feel least comfortable in your skin?” more than 65% of participants mentioned being in a bathing suit as top on that list.  It kills me to know that many women and men won’t even go to a public beach or pool for the dread of wearing a bathing suit.  These are women and men who love being outside, love swimming and the ocean but refuse to take part in that joy any more.  I wondered what it was about swimsuits in particular that made us all feel so uncomfortable and vulnerable.  Is it the fear of other people judging us?  A modesty issue?  Was it how the material felt on the skin that made it so onerous? Whatever the reasons – I honor and respect them. but I also gently ask you that if you too feel wretched when wearing a suit or being at the beach or public pool to sample these 6 strategies.

 

And please report back to me.  I’d love to know if these techniques work for you the way they have worked for me.

 

1. Find a bathing suit that fits your unique body and style. Make sure it is comfortable and is the correct size. (I love www.modcloth.com to buy amazingly comfortable and stylish suits). Buy a beautiful sarong, caftan or coverup in a style and material that makes you feel comfortable.

 

 

2. Recognize and acknowledge that you feel like people may be looking at you and/or making judgements. Ask yourself: Is this true? Or is it a story I’m making up because of how I feel about myself?

3. Get in the water. We are all weightless in water and the sensory experience can help us feel embodied and alive – one of the ways we can improve our body image.

 

 

4. Stand at the pool or beach for a moment in complete mindfulness and presence. Notice the thought bubbles.  Just notice how your body feels and where you are holding tension, ambivalence or stress. Breathe through that and recite a positive mantra. “I am worthy as I am” “My body is meant to do amazing things.” “I will not let shame or fear hold me back for what I want to do in my life.” or make up your own.

 

 

5. Take a minute to notice other people at the pool or beach. Notice how we are all interconnected and we all feel the same concerns, insecurities and self-judgements. Most people are too wrapped up in their own body concerns to be worrying or judging you. Seriously. Remember that. We all have our stories – but you’re allowed to let go of yours.

 

 

6. Take a minute to compliment at least 2 people. Complimenting others is a gift to them but also to you. It doesn’t have to be about that person’s looks or their bathing suit. It could be about how well they are managing with watching 3 kids at the pool or their really nice beach bag or for their taste in music. Whatever. Give yourself a gift by making someone else’s day.

 

Which of these resonate with you the most?  Which will you try?  Let me know in the comments section below!
