Episode 197 transcript



Cassy Joy: Welcome back to another episode of the Fed and Fit podcast. I am your host, Cassy Joy Garcia. And today we’re back. It’s been a while since we’ve done one of these, but this was a really wonderful opportunity to chat with a lovely listener and reader.



I would love to introduce you to Katie. She hails from Indianapolis; I almost said Minneapolis.



Katie: Indianapolis.



Cassy Joy: {laughs} Indianapolis. And we’re going to do a reverse interview. So the way that these interviews work is Katie has written in with a wonderful question, or set of questions, and instead of politely answering her via email, {laughs} I asked her if she would come on the podcast and we could have a conversation because I really think that what we might talk about today would resonate with a lot of folks. So welcome to the show, Katie.



Katie: Thank you for having me! I’m so excited to be here.



Cassy Joy: Thank you so much for making the time to come on. I know you’ve got a lot going on right now. So we will cut into it. Do you mind sharing a little bit more about yourself with all of our listeners? And then we can get into the discussion and maybe some questions you’ve got.



Katie: Sure. I’m a 34-year-old first time mom. I have a son named Clay who is about 10.5-months old. I live in Indianapolis with my husband of 2.5 years, Chris. And our two dogs; our two puppy children. I worked for Target Headquarters up in Minneapolis for about 7 years out of college, and I moved back to Indi, where I’m from, to work for a small digital marketing start up for the last four to five years. And after having my baby, I transitioned to working part time.



And I definitely wrote in with a question that I thought could, like you said, resonate with some of your other listeners. But after having my baby, essentially I’m struggling with what I think is a weight loss plateau. But along with that, some body image and confidence issues. I do definitely want to start with this is not the world’s biggest problem. And I totally recognize that. I feel beyond blessed in my life. But this has been kind of a mental struggle for me. Being tired postpartum, period.



I know a lot of people are dealing with a lot more serious things going on, or possibly even infertility, or other issues like that. So I don’t want to downplay any of those with nutrition or weight loss conversation. But it’s definitely been something that I’ve s...
