Emily Nolan found herself lying on an operating table in the middle of a life or death Why Not Now? moment. She had modeled at 16 different sizes and lived a life in pursuit of being “pretty” until she realized that nothing would ever be enough. Emily now practices radical honesty and self-acceptance. We talk through how she got to a point where she feels healthy in her Earth Suit. We discuss the impact our culture around beauty has on society. Emily said, “Our culture wants us to never have an end game. To always buy, consume and to never have enough and to live in the future of an idea of what we could be – and that idea is always better than what we are now. But in truth, is it?”
