So, who the heck is Katja?
I'm just a regular girl. A regular girl that stands tall at 5'11. I tell you this because this was the beginning of my healing process.
Long story short, I HATED my height. All through my teens, high school, college and even into my early 20's, I was incredibly insecure when it came to my body. Basically, I felt like a tall giraffe everywhere I went. Taller than the boys, bigger than the girls, I felt like a major outsider.
This led to self-hate which led to emotional eating, over eating, binge eating, cardio for hours and hours on end to work it off, etc.
The issue with society's perspective on health is it's so heavily focused on aesthetics. What a female body SHOULD look like. No wonder I had self image issues, I didn't look like anyone in the magazines. Anyone else?
It wasn't until years later I realized health is much more than just the physical element. Health should be all encompassing: a mind, body and spirit approach to healing and wellness.
Sooooo, how can Katja help me?
Great question! Ever heard of the phrase "hurt people hurt people"? Well, I believe healed people heal people. And, I've healed.
