Jameela [00:00:00] Hello and welcome to another episode of I Weigh with Jameela Jamil. I hope that you’re all right. I hope that the holiday season isn’t too stressful. We talk a lot about eating disorders within the I Weigh community, and I know that this can be a really triggering time for some people because of that. There’s a lot of talk about food and a lot of talk about losing the weight that you’re gaining now because they just love to keep us in fear, don’t they? They don’t want us to enjoy our pie or our time with our families and friends or just our lives. They want us to constantly be thinking about the terror of the future and how we’re supposed to look according to their bullshit standards. Well, as ever, I urge you to say fuck them and I urge you when you see the content about losing that Thanksgiving weight, losing that Christmas weight, January starting a new year. A new thinner you. Please join me in getting angry, getting real
