Hello & welcome to the Fearless Self-Love Podcast! Loving ourselves is the most selfless thing we can do. When we prioritize our own needs, we show up more fully for others. We are more receptive and aware. We begin to live with ease. Each episode features conversations with creatives and wellness pros, whose real-life stories will inspire you to take the next step toward living a life you love. Our bottom line is to cultivate communities of fearless self-love and compassionate connection…and you'll feel like you're right here with us, sitting around the table with a pot of tea.

Just because someone does not look like your picture of health does not mean they are not taking care of themselves or unaware of their appearance. Cherie Bachman of @thickfunfabulous breaks down the pain and beauty of embracing a fat body. She courageously tells her story of coming to self-love and how deciding to love herself transformed her sense of self and providing her the tools she needed to take care of herself. Listen as Cherie challenges the perception that fat people who are happy are promoting obesity, “People who are thicker, who are fat, can be joyful, and enjoy their lives.” She makes it clear that “It’s always important to take care of your body. Period. What that looks translates to is different for everybody individually,” and asks me to speak to weight gain from an Ayurvedic perspective. This interview is raw and to the point. Let it open your heart in love.

Cherie Bachman has always had a passion for people, but that has been expressed in different ways through out her life. She began her work in child care and then worked with college students. Most recently, she has changed gears in her career to work in clothing retail. This shift still allows her to focus on her love for people, but now specifically with plus size people in helping them feel comfortable and beautiful in their own skin. In the past year, Cherie was inspired to start her own fashion and body positive blog and Instagram with one of her good friends, Erin. They consistently strive to be vulnerable in their journeys of self love and excitement for fashion in order to inspire others to do the same!
