Real Talk Podcast: Episode 2

In this week's podcast, Kim and I chatted about travel and how amazing it is to share those different experiences. For example, I vividly remember traveling to Barcelona at age 22. This was one of the very first places I went and saw women loving their bodies openly and it is an experience I hold near and dear to my heart as I continued on in my own personal journey towards self-love

We also talked about the importance of following your intuition and connecting to your source of love to avoid the temptation of self-comparison, which can be our worst habit as women.

We also touched on personal experiences where our core belief systems sent us warnings that something wasn't right! Like the time I was asked not to come back to my church youth group because I stood up for the women in my class.

So on that note, it's time to get real! Click on the link above to hear what we had to say!

Real Talk Podcast with Katie and Kim Babcock

I write in my book a lot about listing to your intuition when something is telling you something is wrong. I started to feel that recently with the added outside pressure from people telling me that Healthy is the New Skinny can make so much money and do more, but I need to get my followers up first! We all see the body positive trends happening on social media and we can all agree we do more eye rolls these days, instead of feeling genuinely feel inspired.  Social media is causing so many of us to feel disconnected from our true selves as we conform to seek validation from strangers. We have to start to talk about it and that is exactly what we are doing for this week's podcast.

No more bullshit, just real and honest talk about what we are seeing, feeling, and participating in. I called my new friend Kim Babcock, who I connected with after reading a book called "My Son Erik and the Afterlife" and finding my way onto the corresponding blog, Channeling Erik.

Kim is an author, medium, and spiritual coach with amazing insight on how we as women can take our power back. Hope you enjoy our unfiltered conversation and if you have any questions for Kim or myself we will be chatting every week and providing you with a boost of knowledge and positivity as we battle the constant messaging that tells us we are our physical bodies.

#MYFIRSTFIT

Bra shopping is such a big part of who we are as women and the truth is, fit can affect the way we feel about our bodies!

Healthy is the New Skinny has partnered with True & Co. and Natural Models to get real about something we've all experienced...which is bra shopping! 

Throughout history, bras have been marketed to shape our bodies in a way that is aesthetically pleasing to others. But what about what we want? What are we really look for in a bra? More importantly, how have our preconceived notions about bras and bra fittings affected our self-image?

We are opening up the conversation to find out how fit affects the way we think and feel about our bodies to learn how we can break the stigmas associated with something that is so natural. 

We are so excited to begin sharing real stories from women, who like you, have had a love/hate relationship with their past bra experiences. 

Tag #MyFirstFit to join the conversation and share your bra shopping and fit stories with us!
