Meet Katy

Today, I wanted to share my favorite tips to help you improve your body image (that actually work).

One of my favorite podcasters and business coaches, Amy Porterfield, says that sometimes we have to DSD – Do Something Different – in order to grow.

This really resonates with me, because so much of the process of what I teach – i.e. making peace with food and our bodies – means that we must DSD and get uncomfortable to heal because we are up against diet culture.

Every year there is a fundraising walk where I live in Kansas City for an organization called the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA).

It’s a wonderful event, and it’s so cool to see the community come together to rally in support of people who are healing from eating disorders and disordered eating. I was honored to give a speech at this year’s NEDA Walk – and the topic I chose was body image.

This speech was me doing something different and getting out of my comfort zone.

In it, I went into detail about my 4 best tips – that are surprisingly effective – to improve body image.

In short, they are:

  1. Curate your social media feed!
  2. Get rid of the scale
  3. Wear clothes that fit your body now
  4. Change your inner dialogue about your body

And guess what?

I filmed this speech and turned it into a podcast episode, so you can listen to it now!

In episode 45 of the Rebuilding Trust with Your Body podcast you’ll hear:

  • More detail about my 4 surprisingly effective tips for improving your body image
  • The social media game-changer that will help you rethink the way you scroll

I hope that this episode inspires YOU to get out of your comfort zone as you are working on rebuilding trust with your body and learning to feel more comfortable in your own skin.
