Ep.31 - Self-Acceptance & Self-Love with Cera Byer

The Conversation:  In this episode, we talk with Cera Byer about the lesson of body acceptance and self-care. Cera shared her powerful story of moving past childhood abuse, excessive diets, and negative thinking sparked by her own family to become a mentor to others needing help to achieve body confidence.


Insights:  Here’s what Cera shared:


  • How her parent’s negative relationship with food started a chain of dieting at age 6, insecurity,, obesity, and an eating disorder 
  • Her powerful breakthrough moment in the shower that caused her to pivot towards a new level of body acceptance
  • Her legal emancipation from her parents as a teenager and how that affected her body 
  • The conversation she had with her mother about body confidence and self-esteem
  • The message she would want to pass onto her mother about accepting your body
  • Her new work built on her wisdom as a trainer, lived experience as a person experiencing abuse and shame, and mentorship as a person who made it through her obstacles


Memorable Quote: “I was put on a diet at 6.”


The Homework: Take some time today to do these 3 simple things:

  1. Take a moment to list at least 5 things that you like about your body.
  2. Find a place where you can read the 5 things you wrote out loud.
  3. Notice how your body feels when you read these 5 things. Throughout the day, repeat these things every time you have a negative thought about your body.
