In 2016, Sarah founded The Beautifull Project - a storytelling collective that invites women back to their bodies and into a world where they belong with substance and strength. A gifted storyteller herself, Sarah has a skill for using her own experience as a woman navigating the world in a fat body to invite her audience to encounter the parts of themselves they hide away from the world - the parts they believe to be “too much”.

 

Healing from her own undiagnosed eating disorder of many years, Sarah amplifies a message that moves beyond a body positive sentiment and creates a movement that makes room for every body to tell their truth and take up space. Explore her work and the "chorus of courage" she is creating at www.thebeautifullproject.com.

KEYNOTE PRESENTATION

Kiss BMI Goodbye:

Breaking Up with a Weight-Centered

Approach to Wellness

 


Is it really possible to break up with a weight-centered approach to wellness
once and for all? It’s one thing to understand diets fail. It is another to recognize disordered
eating and eating disorder recovery is dependent on creating a rule-free relationship with
food. How does it work? The role of society's ideal body size must be acknowledged. We
must call out society’s weight belief that a healthy body is a thin body. Abandoning this myth
that thin equals healthy is the very foundation on which a sustainable approach to wellness
can - and should - be built. This session will focus on how we can each move toward a
weight neutral, body affirming lifestyle.
