How did Jacqueline come to weigh over 500 pounds?

Episode 14 follows Jacqueline as she talks about and shares how she found herself weighing more than 500 pounds. Getting to the place where she is now, has allowed her to look back and to think and talk about what went on as a child and young adult that led her to her lowest of lows. Those situations are what we talk about in this episode and how they led her to that bathroom stall in Disneyland that changed her life forever. Without all of those moments leading up to that moment her life might never be what it is today. Being able to look back and know what she knows now makes it easy for her to share her journey and experiences and remind people that you need to do what is best for you and to be mindful of everything you say and do because you never know who may be watching and listening to your choices and actions.

“Cheat” Meals and Treat Meals, How these meals work with extreme weight loss.

Episode 13 is all about the "Cheat Meal." Jacqueline has experienced her fair share of "cheat" meals and these experiences along with her remarkable weight loss journey have helped her form some of the opinions and stories she shares in this episode. We talk about why we both feel that treat meal is a better name for this type of eating and how we think everyone should feed those cravings while still being mindful of what and how they are consuming whatever their treat may be. Changing the way you view and think about food takes lots of time and practice but just like with many other things in life when you realize that there may be a problem you can work on resolving those issues.

Answering One of Jacqueline’s Most Asked Questions. What are your thoughts about food restriction?

Episode 12 tries to answer one of the questions that Jacqueline gets asked most..."How do you handle food restraint and food restriction?" We dive into how food restraint and food restriction mentally and physically affect your body and actions. We discuss how creating hard, strict rules regarding food lends itself to a binging cycle. Rules will be broken and when the rules are broken you will feel like it is ok to eat whatever it is that you aren't allowing yourself to eat. We dig a little deeper into how and why these rules, restraint, and restriction lead to the vicious cycle of binging and then repeating the cycle. We hope that this discussion and Jacqueline's experiences are helpful in answering your questions about how to handle restrictions surrounding food.

Becoming Hyper Aware of Your Thoughts, Feelings, and Actions will Help You in Many Aspects of Life, but Especially with Recovering from an Eating Disorder.

Episode 11 dives a little bit deeper into Jacqueline's Binge Eating Disorder. We talk and discuss how she found herself diagnosed with BED as well as what she feels led up to becoming a binge eater. After talking about when, why, and how she discovered these disordered thoughts and actions we talk about what she is doing to overcome these behaviors. It is very well known that many eating disorder circles around social media believe that ED recovery and weight loss can not work at the same time, but Jacqueline finds herself in the very position of facing both weight loss and BED recovery simultaneously. We also talk about a situation that happened this week when she reached out to a brand that posts about recovery and how they responded to her comment. We hope that the topics and discussions in this week's episode can help our listeners to think about their own situations and help them to become more aware of how their thoughts and actions affect how they feel and respond even if they aren't necessarily suffering from an eating disorder.  We absolutely both feel that every individual is unique and that no matter what their experiences are they will require a unique approach to resolve their struggles.  Recovery does not look the same for everyone, what works for one person may not work for everyone else.  You need to do what is best, and what works for you!

Exercise for Weight Loss: Start Moving Even If It’s Only for 5 Minutes!

Episode 10 is all about exercise and the mindset surrounding exercise. We talk about how Jacqueline started exercising even when she weighed over 500 pounds. We discuss the importance of starting your exercise routine at the level you feel comfortable with and how this will help to grow your confidence not only with working out but with everything you do. Being able to say "yes I did my workout today" no matter how short or long will help you feel like you can do it. When you can do it every single day you will start to believe that you can push yourself a little more each time to improve where you are and what you can accomplish every time you exercise. These small victories add up and lead to you want to push yourself to explore different types of workouts. When you find an excuse to skip that workout it just becomes easier to keep making those excuses. Get out there and get started with exercise even if it is only for five minutes. You CAN do that! Get moving, learn how your body feels while its moving and keep pushing that comfort zone a little bit each and every time you decide to exercise. After you keep making these little changes for extended periods of time you will find that you have made some big progress! The sooner you start exercising the sooner you will see those results, the longer you keep making excuses the easier it will be to keep finding another excuse.

 

Thanks for listening! Get out there and move your body like nobody is watching and remember, it's never too late to fly!

Should You Be Proud of Weight Loss? Reaching your goals is OK!

In episode 9 we talk about why we think being proud of your weight loss is ok.  We dig a little deeper and talk about Jacqueline's experience with celebrating and shaming weight loss as well as why we think you absolutely should be celebrating your victories.  We strongly believe that when you are using weight loss as part of a journey to better health, fitness, and overall wellness that it is very important to celebrate it.  We also believe that celebrating weight loss if that is your only goal can be a slippery slope that sometimes leads to bigger problems.  Ultimately we think that it is important to listen to your body, your needs, and your situation to make the choices that are best for you.  We think that anything too extreme can be dangerous and celebrating steps along a journey can help to keep you motivated and to continue on a path to success. We hope that you find a helpful bit of information that you can apply to your own life and situation and use that to reach for that goal that you never believed that you can achieve.  It's never too late to fly!  Go get whatever it is that you want to accomplish!

Thanks for listening!!

Overcoming Setbacks: Talking About How I am Going to Overcome Weight Gain

Episode 8 goes over Jacqueline's plan to overcome her recent weight gain struggles.  We talk about the steps that we believe are important to consider when you are struggling.  We think that the past is the past but those moments are there to help you get stronger.  The past is important and so that we can learn from those struggles as we continue forward.  Without the low moments, you would never know what those high moments feel like.  It is important to use these lows to help you learn from your mistakes or bumps along the road and help get better.  Life is a winding path and a journey and we need to remember that we can always keep moving forward and that just because we make a mistake that we haven't failed and we can't give up.  We must continue on even if that means we need to choose or create a new path.  We hope that this episode can be a little reminder that we all make mistakes, have hard days and times but no matter what we have not failed or truly lost unless we stop trying.  Keep going, believe in yourself, and remember its never too late to fly!

The Challenge and Struggle of Gaining Weight After Losing Weight

Episode 7 dives into weight gain after weight loss.  Many people who lose large amounts of weight experience and struggle with regaining weight.  This episode finds us talking about how Jacqueline went from healthy weight loss to some somewhat unhealthy and "extreme" measures to try and get that number on the scale to continue downward and reach her lowest weight.  These unhealthy weight loss tactics coupled with trying to recover from excess skin removal surgery led Jacqueline down the road of gaining weight once again.  We talk about what was going on and how she came to realize this and how she knew it was time again for some changes and to try and start losing weight in a healthy manner after all.  We talk about why and how it is so difficult for so many people to open up and admit that "yes" they have actually gained after being at their lowest point.  We hope that this episode can help you if you find your self in a similar place in overcoming the challenge of regaining weight.  Our hope is that by discussing these difficult to talk about topics that our listeners can look within themselves and be open and honest about what they may be experiencing so that they can realize that it's never too late to fly and make those changes that may be needed to live our best lives possible.

The Scale: Why you should you be using more than one way to measure your weight loss success.

Episode 5 is an in-depth conversation about the scale.  We talk about Jacqueline's relationship with the scale and how that one tool can hold you back from success.  Jacqueline has been weighing herself recently as she tries to lose some of the regain she has experienced over the past year or so.  After the number on the scale didn't change for a second consecutive week, she had a little meltdown and let that number dominate her.  After a very deep conversation, we decided to make this week's episode about the scale too so that Jacqueline could share her experiences and how they have helped her to grow mentally and emotionally.  After taking a step back and really looking at the success she has felt in the past two weeks she again remembered that the number on the scale doesn't define her and shouldn't allow it to control her the way she was allowing it to.  We talked about how she was making healthy eating choices and getting her exercise in and there wasn't much else in her control that she could do to make the scale move.  Sometimes you do everything in your power but sometimes that scale still won't budge.  Even though the scale was being stubborn she felt like her clothes were fitting better, and she felt like she was able to move better in her workouts.  These are two different ways to measure success without looking at the scale.  We also talked about how progress pictures can be an excellent way to gauge if what you are making progress towards your weight loss goals.  Ultimately we talked about how its ok to feel whatever it is that you are feeling and releasing those emotions is important to your progress.  If you stay in a negative place mentally it will more than likely hold you back physically at some point too.  Jacqueline shares how important being aware of your emotions is to staying on track and making progress to your goals.  When you are aware of your emotions and your thoughts you can make the changes to help you achieve your goals!  We hope that whatever journey you may find your self on that you have success and don't allow any number on a scale to define your or determine your value or worth.  Thanks for listening to this week's episode!
