Marta Michalek

Advocate for self-love, self compassion, and proudly taking up space in a room.

Marta Michalek dreams of living in a world filled with women who look in the mirror and say, hey beautiful. After spending more than two-thirds of her life trying to make her body disappear, she is now an advocate for self-love, self-compassion, and proudly taking up space in a room. A business analyst by day, in her spare time Marta enjoys deadlifting, climbing mountains, and reading everything she can get her hands on.

Shame, Diets And My Eating Disorder

This yo-yo or extreme dieting may be seen as harmless or even vain but we must recognize it stems from a very dangerous place. Negative body image is the negative self-perception of your body. It is often accompanied by shame; the unworthiness we feel due to our flaws. This combination of negative body image and shame is what leads us to take desperate measures with our bodies.
