Have you ever said “no” to joining in on a social activity or even trying a new sport because you felt self conscious of your size?  In our latest Plus Performance podcast episode, we chat with Sophia Apostol, a Certified Professional Co-Active Life Coach about body confidence and how a lack of it prevents us from fully participating in life.

Sophia shares with us why she became a Life Coach dedicated to helping curvy women live their most amazing life; how to identify if you lack body confidence, because sometimes we are so use to the critical voices in our head, we may not even recognize them anymore; how to deal with self-judgment; judgment from strangers and loved ones; the small steps we can take to shut down the negativity; set boundaries in conversations, all for the benefit of building our body confidence so we can ‘grab life by the love handles‘.
