Meet Katy

We've been brainwashed to believe that we all need to be at a "normal" weight (i.e. low weight) to be healthy.  When I challenge clients to define what they mean by healthy, they insist that they have to be at a certain weight and this will magically make them healthy.  They don't even understand the question I asked them because our society's perception of reality has been so skewed.  

Health is an umbrella that encompasses many things, and for true health there needs to be a balance among those different areas. 

  • Physiological health – are your organ systems functioning properly?
  • Psychologial health – how's your overall state of mind and wellbeing?
  • Spiritual health – are you experiencing fulfillment and joy and living according to your values?

And what does weight have to do with this?  Some would argue that it has everything to do with health. I challenge that this isn't true. Studies show that a person's physiological health improves as a result of behavioral lifestyle changes, regardless of weight loss. And our psychological health is about mind, not body. A person can be happy and healthy at any size. For more information, check out the Health at Every Size movement, spearheaded by thought-leader Linda Bacon, PhD.
