Jameela Hello and welcome to another episode of I Weigh with Jameela Jamil, a podcast against shame. I hope you’re well. It’s a lot going on. It’s December. Truly one of the most triggering months of the year for such a multitude of reasons. It is a difficult month for people who struggle with self-image and eating disorders, and there’s a lot of partying going on that’s really difficult for introverts and people with social anxiety. The diet fucking industry is already getting ready for all of us, already early, earlier than usual, putting out the adverts about how we’re going to have to lose the weight from the foods that we haven’t even eaten yet on Christmas Day. We haven’t even been able to enjoy our fuckin dessert and our fuckin turkey and potatoes with our friends and family before they are already telling us about intermittent fasting and starving ourselves so we can be beach body ready by next summer, which is six months away.
