Hi There - I’m Karlyn Benn, Licensed Professional Counselor and Body Love Coach. My goal is to empower women to embrace their individuality and ROCK regardless of their weight or body size.
I know what it feels like to hate your body, spend every waking moment thinking about food, constantly comparing yourself to others, and starting over on Monday…every week! When I think back, my first memory of feeling body shame was in elementary school. Yep, elementary. Smh. And my first “diet” of many was soon thereafter.
For years, I struggled with weight issues. I’d lose weight, only to gain it back, and then I’d be mad at myself for “failing”.
Something had to change.
Slowly, I began peeling back the countless layers of self-hatred that the diet culture had imposed on me and realized true happiness started and ended by shifting my mindset. No matter what the scale read, the size of my clothes, or how the women on my IG feed looked, I had to love myself!
