Podcast Episode #143: Why Body Image Can Be So Difficult After 40

Positive body image is something so many of us strive for, not only for our own well-being, but also as an example to our kids. But what we don’t talk about is the struggle to keep that positive body image mindeset when we know our body isn’t as healthy as we want it to be. And what a toll the pressure of “having it all together” can have on us.

In this episode, we welcome back Ruth Soukup. She’s the founder of Thinlicious (as well as 3 other companies), a NYT Bestselling author of 7 books, and host of the Do it Scared podcast, among many other things! Her passion is for helping women create the life they love and is the mom to two teenage girls.

We chat with Ruth about the difficulty of keeping a positive body image also while trying to become healthier (especially after 40), and what we can do about it.

In this episode of the No Guilt Mom podcast you’ll learn:

  • The struggle of body positivity when trying to lose weight
  • How we are impacted by what we observed from our own parents and how they viewed body image and weight loss
  • Mind shifts we can make to help make our own mindset align with what we want to have
