Body Image Bootcamp  |  $199

As a woman, mother, and artist, it is my passion to help All Women face their Body Image Issues and change their lives by empowering them to Love their WHOLE Self.

What is Body Image Boot Camp?

The intent of Body Image Boot Camp is to explore your body image, educate you on why we believe the bullshit we do, and empower you to take control of your thought processes, thus enabling you to move forward and work toward more important things!

Our bodies are simply the vessels that our soul travels through life. They are not designed to live forever. When we put so much worth into what they look like, what happens to our bodies when they start to age, change, and break down?

Body Image Issues

Unfortunately we live in a society that has taught us to believe that we are not worthy and that there is always something that needs to be altered, changed, or bettered. Body Image Issues are prevalent in our communities, with our young and old, and has become like a wild fire on Social Media of all platforms. It has the ability to wreck lives and gets in the way of incredible women accomplishing amazing things. I truly believe that once we get past it, we will have so much more time and energy for the important things in life.

Changing Lives

Body Image Boot Camp is here to provide the tools for women to start changing their mindset, therefore allowing you to move past your body issues and start focusing on the things that can help change our world for the better! I have been through the boot camp myself and I am trained and certified facilitator of Body Image Boot Camp. I am so grateful to my mentor and creator of BIBC, Teri Hofford for teaching me her ways and inspiring other women to become apart of this very special movement.

How Does It Work?

and who is it for?

BIBC is for any woman, no matter their size, shape, age or color, that wants help coming to terms with their body image issues. We will gather at the ESP Studio and have weekly topics to help us get to the root of the body image monster that lives inside all of us. I will give you a journal and all the materials to create your personal and private art journal. We will focus on collage, drawing, writing, painting, and sharing about our experiences with weekly topics, triggers and events that have occurred in our lives.

Body Image Statistics

  • “Body image” is the way that someone perceives their body and assumes that others perceive them. This image is often affected by family, friends, social pressure and the media.[1]
  • People who are unhappy with their bodies and don’t seek healthy nutrition information may develop eating disorders. “Eating disorders” are unhealthy relationships with food that may include fasting, constant dieting, or binging and purging.[2]
  • Body image is closely linked to self-esteem. Low self-esteem in adolescents can lead to eating disorders, early sexual activity, substance use and suicidal thoughts. You can post encouraging notes in your school bathrooms to brighten your classmates’ day. Sign up for Mirror Messages.[3]

Body Image Boot Camp

“So what is body image? It’s a reaction you have within in response to what you see in the mirror or a picture. This encompasses the perceptions and things you tell yourself about how you feel about your body. You’re too fat, too thin, ugly, old, bloated and tired, average, amazing, fit, beautiful or whatever you tell yourself based on what you see. This is your body image.

 

Self image is how we feel about ourselves as people, as human beings. It’s who you are as a person from the soul; self esteem. If you’re a good giving and caring person, a good parent, a great friend or sibling. Body image and self image for most everyone go hand in hand. You may have great body image but a poor self image; poor self esteem. Or you may have the opposite. Ultimately you want a healthy and positive image of both.

 

If you’ve looked in the mirror and punished yourself for what you see based on the fact that you’ve let your health go and gained weight you get what I’m talking about here. Because you’ve let yourself go (body image) …now you’ve deemed yourself as a total failure in life. (self image) The fat on your hips and thighs, your flabby midsection, the chubby arms…these are not who you are. (body image) And because you may have let yourself go for whatever reason, you’re still the same loving giving person that you’ve always been. (self image) Your friends, family and loved ones around you know and embrace this as well. I’ve said before that being overweight for the most part is always the result of something much bigger; an injury that caused you to become inactive, a traumatic event, your need to be protected by the fat suit, depression, loss, a bad relationship or any other reason in life that took you in the wrong direction health wise. These events and the current result of being overweight again are not who you are. No need to punish yourself. And newsflash; If you’re overweight you have the power within you to do something about it.”
