you are worthy as you are, quote, trees

Weightless is about fostering a fulfilling body image and life, at any shape + size. It’s about well-being, not weight.

Weightless is about building a healthy relationship with food and yourself. It’s about transforming your self-care, and finding self-acceptance and self-love.

Weightless is about becoming a clever consumer and recognizing when women’s magazines and other mediums tout unrealistic and damaging tips and standards.

Some of the features you’ll find:

  • Body Image Boosters. Having a healthy body image doesn’t just affect how you feel about your looks, it affects your overall well-being. Research has shown that high levels of body dissatisfaction are connected to low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, unhealthy habits and disordered eating. Every Monday, you’ll find a tip that helps you boost your body image and take great care of yourself.
  • Recovery Stories. Weightless also features interviews with amazing women who’ve recovered from eating disorders, negative body image, binge eating and other kinds of disordered eating. If you’d like to share your story of recovery, please email me at mtartakovsky@gmail.com.
  • Minding the Magazines. How often have you picked up a women’s magazine, and after flipping through the pages, felt like you had to put yourself on a diet and exercise every day of the week? Though women’s magazines include some positive pieces, we regularly get a skewed view of beauty and a stringent view of food and fitness. These posts point out when magazines dish out bad advice on eating, exercise and “healthy” habits.
