We all hear her. She’s that voice that holds you back from being that fearless person you ultimately want to be around food and within your body.
So it goes without saying that to change you’re going to need to open your mind up to new ways of doing things…and I’m here to tell you listening to your ‘mean girl’ has got to go.
You probably think I’m going to tell you that in order to start to making change you must silence your ‘mean girl’. But no I’m not, because I don’t believe it’s true. Body acceptance is a path for the brave, but it’s not a path for the fearless. I’ve never met anyone who isn’t fearless to some degree, especially when it comes to their bodies.

Key points from the video:
- Fear has been programmed to come along and be super hypervigilant and insanely over protective to protect you from getting ‘hurt’, ‘losing’ and being ‘vulnerable’.
- Contrary to popular belief I’m all for fear not necessarily being a ‘bad’ thing. You need your fear for obvious reasons like basic survival. We were all born with a fear ‘reflex’ that stops many of us from living a dangerous, crazy life (walking right into traffic, jumping right into the surf despite being an unconfident swimmer, going to pat a lion because it’s cute etc). So to some degree you can thank fear for hanging around!
- You do not need your fear aka your ‘mean girl’ when it comes to food.
- Your ‘mean girl’ will always show up especially when you’re ready to get support, make a change, implement support etc. Fear is triggered because you’re entering uncertain territory, with an uncertain outcome (and control freaks HATE this!).
- You will learn one of my favourite techniques for slicing through fear and working with it, rather than against it.
