The Body Image Upgrade
A step-by-step journey to feeling connected to your body and beautiful in your skin
“The biggest shift I’ve experienced from taking this course has been this sense of partnership I’ve formed between myself and my body. My body is a friend that I now check in with regularly, just like I would any of my friends, to see what would make her feel joyful, excited, nourished, and light. Today, I feel so grateful for my body!”
- Leah Vail
If you’re here, then I know you have a complicated relationship with your body.
You’ve been through a LOT with her.
You’ve gone through times of desperately wanting her to change - standing in front of a mirror pinching and prodding at every single imperfection, so frustrated that your body doesn’t look like the bodies you see on Instagram or in magazines.
And then you’ve gone through phases where you’ve tried to “love your body”, because you heard that’s what you “should” try to do. You’ve attempted to accept her as she is, only to end up catching a glimpse of yourself in a reflection and sinking into a pool of self-judgement, right back where you started.
You’re so scared that if you don’t have the “right” body, that you won’t get what you want
out of life:
- The beautiful relationship
- The admiration from other women
- The approval from your family
- The stellar reputation in your career
- The joy, the ease, the happiness.
If only I was THINNER:
I’d be able to wear all the pretty clothes and they’d look effortlessly good on my body.
I’d be able to attract the kind of partner I am actually attracted to. Or, my current partner would find me more attractive.
People would think I was thriving and so happy. I want them to think these things about me.
But at the same time, you’re so exhausted from trying to constantly fix and change the body you’re in.
You’re tired of seeing pictures of yourself and immediately zooming in on what you don’t like. You’re tired of feeling held back in your life because of your body. You’re tired of always worrying about people judging the way you look.
You know there must be another way.
You’d do anything to feel that vivacious confidence NOW.
To feel sexy NOW.
To feel free of all this noise NOW.
You want to end the fight with your body, but you just don’t know how.
I get it, because I've been in your shoes. I went from being a girl who could barely look at herself in the mirror to a woman who handles her body’s changes with grace, unconditional love, and unwavering confidence.
And this way of feeling in my skin? I didn’t get here by hitting a certain number on a scale, working out like a crazy person to “tone up” or miraculously flattening my stomach.
I got here through a total shift in mindset and learning what it actually looks and feels like to treat my body with the love and respect she has always deserved.
I realized what was true for me all along (and the same is true for YOU!): the only thing standing in between me and the confidence I always wanted to feel was MYSELF. Not those extra pounds.
Here's a bit more about my story.
I bet you can relate:
When I was younger, I was often praised for having a “good body”. To a high schooler, I internalized this as “my body brings me love and attention”.
So when puberty inevitably hit, and my body naturally started to change (hello thighs! hello boobs!), I got really freaked out.
What if my body wasn’t special anymore? What if I lost the admiration and recognition I’ve always received because of my body? What if I’m not loved?
So what’s a girl to do when she wants to get her skinny little body back because she thinks it’s what makes her worthy?
She DIETS. She starts to control food. She runs and runs and runs to burn calories.
She does anything she can to try to FIX her body and manipulate it to the ideal version of where she thinks it should be.
And the worst part of it all was that while I was busy trying to fix my body, I started to lose myself. I started to lose my confidence. I started to lose my sense of fun and my youthful carefree nature.
Instead, I became rigid. Controlling. Serious. And very insecure.
This concoction of events led to a decade long struggle with food and my body.
It led to my weight yo-yoing all over the place and gaining forty pounds. It led to feeling completely disconnected from the neck down and feeling so gross in my own skin, all the time. It led to feeling embarrassed of my body whenever I was with a man, and ashamed of my inability to control my weight. It led to a lack of self-esteem and self-worth, convinced I wouldn’t be found attractive.
It was an all-consuming, defeating place to be in.
Slowly, I started working on my relationship with food - ditching diets and forming an intuitive relationship with food. As I did that, I also started challenging some of the ingrained beliefs I had about myself and my body.
I realized the power of my thoughts and woke up to the idea that the way I saw myself was actually creating the exact reality I did not want. I started playing around with new beliefs about what was possible for me, in the exact body I was in.
I started letting myself have way more fun, wear clothes I wanted to wear, put on bright red lipstick with a little black dress and enjoy being a damn woman, go to happy hour even though I knew I’d be consuming “empty calories” in beer, and believe that I, too, deserved to live a vibrant, passionate, feminine and fun life.
Slowly, my weight stabilized, the yo-yo dieting came to an end, and I stopped believing that my body was ever actually getting in my way.
Today, the relationship I have with my body is founded in deep respect and unconditional love. I no longer try to control her size, because I know that the size she is will always continue to fluctuate, and my self-worth is no longer tied to it. I have an actual close bond with her; I listen to what she needs and I do my best to honor that, daily.
And life feels a heck of a lot easier, more fun, and lighter without the constant fight with my body. It’s opened up my brain to be able to focus on the 1,000 other things that are important in my life.
And you deserve this too. You deserve to have a wild, fulfilling, meaningful and fun life in which you are focused on what MATTERS and not on what’s wrong with your body.

“Since doing the course, I feel much more comfortable in and with my body.”
My relationship with my body has always been difficult and I have never been satisfied with my body as is. I let this rule so much of my life and it was utterly soul-crushing. I signed up for the Body Image Upgrade because I knew it was time to really focus on how I felt about my body and to improve the relationship I had with her.
Since doing the course, I feel much more comfortable in and with my body as it is now. The changes I’ve seen in myself have been really positive -- it’s a great feeling and certainly a lot less stressful! The course is simple to do, it has a ton of impact, and I love that it can be done at your own pace, over and over again.
“Don’t assume that if you’ve done body image work before you already know the questions and answers -this course takes that work deeper.”
Before the course, I felt like my body was letting me down; I was angry at my body, I blamed it for holding me back, and I didn’t take my own pain and physical limitations seriously. Now, I feel like my body and I are on the same team. I am much more accepting of the reality of my limitations, but I’m also so much more aware of what my body CAN do. My eating, movement and rest patterns have all improved as I am listening to my body more and working with her rather than resisting her.
Honestly, any woman alive in this society has body shit they need to work on! I would absolutely recommend Jamie's program!
“Every woman needs to do this program!”
Before doing this program, my relationship with my body was a constant battle. A daily fight for change that didn’t need to take place.
Since going through the course, I now have patience, connection, understanding and acceptance of the body that is mine for LIFE.
I loved the applicable examples Jamie included in the lessons. She's always been vulnerable and open with us, and vulnerability breeds vulnerability. So when I saw or read about how she dealt with similar struggles that I face, it helped me practice being brave enough to deal with those things in a healthy way.
This work sets the stage for wide spread personal growth in allowing ourselves to be who we are and learning to be in tune with our needs and desires more clearly.
I would recommend it to every girl I know. Period!
You can get started any time and will always have access to the course.
