Jameela [00:00:00] Hello and welcome to another episode of I Weigh with Jameela Jamil. I hope you’re well, but if you’re not, I hope you’re persisting whatever it is that you’re doing in order to just get by through this terrible month, I support it and I’m with you and I just want to quickly say thank you so much for listening to the podcast in the last month and absolutely inundating me with lovely messages about how much you’ve enjoyed the episodes we put out. I picked those guests very, very carefully and specifically for that time of year, and it makes me so happy to know that you it all resonated with you and that you felt heard and seen or inspired or energized and and less lonely. These are all the things that I feel, and what I love about doing this podcast is that, you know, I hate experiencing anything really great on my own. You know, like when you stay in like a nice hotel room, when you see a beautiful sight and then as you turn around,
