Kay was raised in a very physically strong and athletic family. Both of her brothers played football and her parents were both power lifters. Recently, Kay has been addressing her weight and size, not only in an attempt to possibly lose weight but she’s been investigating her eating habits and experiencing epiphanies about the origins of those habits in her life and in her family. Kay goes into the mentality that her family carries around food and eating. She also opens up a discussion about control when it comes to food and also about the lack of control that Kay felt around her body as a young woman growing up in an athletic family. She was consistently being put in training camps and on sports teams as she came from a family of athletes and coaches. Because this was the culture of her family, Kay didn’t have a choice in the matter despite not feeling competitive about athletics at all. Jana and Kay discuss being burned out from sports, quitting and getting into the arts. The two show appreciation for women’s athletics and female athletes but ultimately want to appreciate it from the sidelines.
