Hey everyone! My name is Jenna, and I’m here with the hope that we can all work on our body positivity and self-image together. I am a dietitian, but please don’t be turned off by that word – there is a common misconception that being a dietitian means acting as a drill sergeant and telling everyone how they should eat, when to eat, and what to eat. My mantra is always that all foods can fit (note my picture!) and that to enjoy your food is part of enjoying your life. Being in the role that I am in professionally only increases my interest in transforming the body shaming that has become so prevalent, into a new appreciation for ourselves and the place that we live in every day of our lives: our bodies, our homes.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions, comments, or anecdotes that you may have on this topic, because I would love to hear from you! This is about the real feelings we are experiencing as a society and a culture, and what we can do to change our way of thinking.
