In episode 41 we talk about the weight loss journey that Jacqueline is on now and how it is different than when she began her weight loss journey several years ago at 500 pounds. Jacqueline shares the top 5 differences she has noticed that are different this time around, including what may be a little more challenging, and what is somewhat easier. Jacqueline shares a lot of information about how important mental health is and how therapy is helping her so much. Having a binge eating disorder is hard, but Jacqueline opens up about this, about her weight gain and what she is doing to not only lose weight but how to hopefully keep it off this time in a healthier way and keep moving forward without so much anger, embarrassment and shame. We discuss how along our journey we are all constantly growing, changing, evolving, and learning. We discuss how we cannot be angry for the past and for not knowing then what we know now. Learning is part of the journey, making changes is ok and you never fail if you never stop trying. Jacqueline sometimes feels like she "failed" because she gained some weight, but she is learning that this time around when she is trying to lose weight, she doesn't have to start over because she failed, but this is just a continuation of her journey to being the best version of herself possible. We hope these top 5 differences Jacqueline is sharing can help inspire you to keep going on your journey and no matter what, to never give up on yourself. You can never fail if you never stop trying.
