Episode 36 digs deep into being in a relationship at over 500 pounds. Jacqueline discusses some of what she was struggling with as she was in a relationship while also trying to figure out her own self-image and weight issues. We talk about how our relationship helped Jacqueline to be able to love herself and how the love we had for each other pushed her to make those changes for herself. We also talk about how in order to make big and lasting changes it is important to be making those changes because you want them and not because you are trying to please someone else. It doesn't matter if this person is family or a boyfriend or girlfriend if you are changing because someone else wants you to that can be dangerous and also your results may not be lasting or sustainable. Your situation and relationship will grow and evolve and maybe you find that person is no longer a part of your life, does that mean you just give up on the goals because the reason you were changing is no longer there? No, change for yourself and compare yourself to you, and make sure that you are moving towards where you want to go even if they are small steps because YOU want to change. We also discuss what we feel is the best way to help someone that you love and care about if you want to help them lose weight. That is NEVER an easy conversation to have and our first-hand experience with this will hopefully be insightful as to how you can try and have that conversation with someone you love and care for.
