“Painful Body Image is the final frontier of women’s disempowerment. Nothing is holding us back now except ourselves. It’s time to take our power back.”
~Julie Norman, Body Image Guru
“I feel FAT!” Ah, the mantra of the modern day woman. Fat talk is as common as small talk these days with 85% of women reporting body dissatisfaction and eating disorders affecting more women than breast cancer. Our culture is obsessed with weight, food, dieting and exercise even though 95% of the time this approach fails to create lasting peace and true health. Fighting with our bodies is ineffective at best, at worst Diet Drama keeps us from living and enjoying life to the fullest.
Oddly enough, you can hear women of all shapes and sizes state “I feel FAT.” That’s because body image goes way deeper than the scale and cellulite. I’ve yet to meet a women who’s found peace, health and empowerment through war with her body. What I have seen is painful body image starve women of happiness, energy, clarity, love and more. This has troubled me since I recovered myself so I’ve committed my work to changing it because I believe it changes the world.
“If the women of the world were comfortable, the world would be a comfortable place.”
