My name is Katie!
I am a nurse committed to helping others.
I decided to share my journey to try to combat toxic diet culture and predatory pyramid schemes. I want to encourage and support others like myself who have had difficulty with their weight and health. I have struggled with my weight for my entire adult life and a majority of my adolescence.
I suffer from thyroid disease and was diagnosed at a young age. It has always been a little more difficult for me to lose weight than it would be if I had a normal body metabolism and didn't move through life at the speed of a sloth. Throughout my life, I have failed multiple attempts at losing weight.
The only difference between then and now is that I am no longer using my disadvantage as a crutch and facing my issues head-on. I identify as an "emotional eater" - no matter the emotion. This led me to look into the reasons behind why and how I eat the way I do. I discovered that anxiety and depression (along with many other mental health diagnoses) can play a huge role in how we react to or even use food to cope.
Whether you've got weight to lose, want to learn to love yourself, or want to learn about the health and wellness truths that MLM companies don't want you to hear
I'd love it if you joined me on my journey to better health.
