The Comparison Trap:

  • Unfollow accounts that trigger thoughts of self doubt or self shaming
  • FOLLOW accounts that bring balance to posts or are uplifting and feature all different kinds of body types. Some of our Instagram favorites are:
  • @darrennatoni (the account Jenna reads from during the podcast)
    @runeatrepeat
    @healthyisthenewskinny
    @grrrrl_clothing
    @coconutandkettlebells

Overall, remember that you’re getting the highlight reel on social media. EVERYONE struggles in different ways, but we aren’t always comfortable putting that out there.

Unsupportive Friends:

  • Talk to your friends. Explain your goals. Good ones will support you 🙂
  • Set yourself up for success. Plan activities that don’t revolve around food or alcohol.
  • Remember: everything is a choice. What you eat, drink, choose to do, etc.
