Overcoming Self Sabotage, 3 Tips To Help Get Out of Your Own Way

This week's conversation for Episode 54 digs deep into self-sabotage.  We dig deep into Jacqueline's own experiences with self-sabotage and how she is working on overcoming these difficult situations.  We talk about a few examples where Jacqueline found herself in a situation where she very easily could have wreaked havoc on her progress by continuing to go against her best judgment.  Jacqueline shares 3 tips that she has learned from her therapist and has implemented into her everyday life with some success.  The first tip is to admit and be aware that you are self-sabotaging.  When you are aware that you are doing this type of behavior you can work on stopping it or mitigating how long it lasts.  Tip number 2 is to make small changes that are sustainable and can help you reach a larger goal.  These smaller bites are easier to follow and do continuously.  It is much easier to eat a cake in slices or bites rather than trying to eat the entire cake at one time.  The third tip is to challenge or test yourself.  After you have the first two steps down and you feel comfortable where you are it's time to put some of those changes into practice and see how you respond.  It will be difficult and it may feel like you are failing but that is the place you need to be for growth and learning.  When we create these situations for ourselves it is much easier to recover rather than trying to go through these experiences out of necessity in "real" life.  Try not tracking something at home on a weekend and see how you respond.  Try eating something "off" plan and see how you respond.  It's much is easier to recover from these situations when you are controlling them not because you are out of town and there is nothing that you can do to fix or control the situation.  We hope that this conversation about Jacqueline's experiences can help you if you are on a similar journey.

Top 3 Things Everyone Should Know About Weight Loss. Jacqueline’s Top Tips after Losing 300 Pounds.

The 3 things about weight loss that are not talked about nearly enough.

1- It’s going to be hard Ya, I said it. Weight loss is not easy. If you want to lose 5 pounds or 500 pounds- weight loss is hard. It’s not just as simple as “stop eating and workout”. Oh man if I could only keep track of how many times I have personally heard that one. Just stop eating and move more. I wish when I began my journey at 500 pounds that someone would have told me the truth...this is going to be hard. When it became hard, I always thought there was something wrong with me. Why was it hard for only me! What I didn’t realize is that it’s ok that it’s hard. Hard does not mean impossible. So just because it’s hard, doesn’t mean that you aren’t strong enough.

2- You don’t have to be perfect. For so long I strived to be perfect, to never slip up, mess up, go over my calories...I tried so hard to be perfect because that is what I thought it took. If I wasn’t being perfect I wasn’t trying hard enough. Trying to be perfect only lead me deeper into an eating disorder. It’s not about being perfect. It’s doing your best every day and knowing when you “fall down” it’s ok! You just stand back up and keep moving forward!

3- You are not always going to be motivated I don’t care who you are, no one is motivated 100% of the time. I wish I knew this when I began my journey too. On days I was struggling and didn’t feel motivated to keep going, I thought, Why was I the only one struggling, why was I the only one having a hard time...why couldn’t I just be like everyone else. But what I didn’t realize is that no one is motivated all of the time. Realizing this has helped me so much. That is why it is so important to me to build healthy habits and healthy routines that I can stick to, so when my motivation is lacking I can rely on my daily routine and habits to help me out.

Eating Choices and Food Decisions on Vacation in Disneyland || Jacqueline Made BIG Progress this Trip

Episode 52 is an episode talking about Jacqueline's success with her relationship with food on our most recent trip to Disneyland. We dig deep into the day of thoughts and feelings surrounding Jacqueline's food choices. Jacqueline's thoughts and feelings surrounding food were very different on this trip and were a direct result of the hard work that Jacqueline has been putting in with her therapist regarding her relationship with food, and overcoming her binge eating disorder. We hope that this conversation about what has changed and what is working and not working for Jacqueline can help you if you are on a similar journey.

Tracking Weight Loss Progress without Using the Scale. Is Jacqueline Seeing Success?

Episode 51 is a conversation about Jacqueline's progress and experiences since she has stopped weighing herself. It has taken a lot of work on Jacqueline's part to get her where she is today with her relationship with food and herself. We talk about the changes that have happened and allowed her to feel this progress. All of the work that Jacqueline has been putting in to try and overcome her Binge Eating Disorder has allowed her to feel the progress and success she is feeling. It has been a long road and there are many times that she didn't feel that she was on the right path but she has continued to push on and now she is reaping the benefits of her hard work. There are still some struggles and some days are easier than others but she really feels like she has turned a big corner in her weight loss journey without using the scale to measure her progress. We hope that this conversation about what has changed and what is working and not working for Jacqueline can help you if you are on a similar journey.

Jacqueline Is Throwing Away The Scale…Sharing Some Thoughts From Therapy.

In episode 46, Jacqueline talks about her ever-changing relationship with the scale. After many discussions with her therapist, Jacqueline has decided that it is best for her mental health to stop weighing herself and using the scale to justify actions and behaviors. Jacqueline and her therapist talked about why the scale has played such a huge role in her journey and why some of that thinking is what may be holding her back when it comes to making progress with her mental health and recovery from her binge eating disorder. Jacqueline discusses why using the scale as a way to determine weight loss success is a dangerous and slippery slope for someone who may be struggling mentally with food and/or their weight. Jacqueline shares how her therapist explained why it is important to have different ways to measure your progress rather than using the scale as a sole determining factor in your progress. Jacqueline shares some thoughts and points that her therapist has helped her with, in hopes to help others who may find themselves on a similar journey can be inspired by what she is sharing. If you find yourself struggling with the scale as well as your weight loss journey this podcast may just be what you need in order to help you think about something different and help you on your journey.

5 Tips About Support When it Comes to Weight Loss

In episode 45 we discuss how to support someone on a weight loss journey. After getting asked this question, we sat down and shared a lot about how Kevin supported Jacqueline when she began her journey at 500 pounds. Jacqueline and Kevin learned a lot about what worked, what they needed to work on, and what they need to keep doing now to keep loving and showing support to one another. They talk about how communication is key, being open and honest with one another and expressing your wants and needs is so important. We cannot expect people to read our minds...so we need to communicate and listen to one another. They also discuss their views on if you should go on a diet together, not using your partner to hold you accountable for your decisions, and how shame, guilt, or dismissing the feelings of someone is never helpful. We hope that this honest conversation can share some ways that you can support someone on a weight loss journey and how if you yourself are on a weight loss journey, how you can openly and honestly ask for help and get the support you might need.
