Writer and activist Ijeoma Oluo shares why she gave up the
pursuit of weight loss even though she had "succeeded" at dieting,
how she stepped away from the scale and made peace with her size,
why body acceptance is a journey and not a destination, how to help
kids develop peaceful relationships with their bodies, why worrying
about your weight robs you of your life, why we need to stop
obsessing about our bodies, how food insecurity affects people's
relationships with food, and lots more. This episode originally
