Excess Skin and Skin Removal Myths and Misconceptions DEBUNKED!!

Episode 42 is about debunking the top 5 myths and misconceptions surrounding excess skin after extreme weight loss as well as skin removal surgery. After a post about Jacqueline's skin removal journey on her legs went viral on Instagram and TikTok many comments came in surrounding her legs, skin, and surgery. This is not the first time that Jacqueline has received comments that are just flat out not true in regards to excess skin or skin removal. We thought it was time to sit down and discuss why we feel that these comments are just simply not true. Hopefully, if you find yourself on a weight loss journey where loose skin is a possibility, near the end of a journey where loose skin is a reality, or are just interested in the topic, this episode will help understand some of the most misunderstood facts and realities of loose skin and the possibility of surgery to follow.

Losing Weight at Over 500 Pounds and Losing Weight Now, 5 Major Differences This Time

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.

Don’t Let “What If’s” Stop You From Loving Yourself and Living Your Best Life

In episode 40 we talk about choosing to lose weight or not because of a fear of loose skin. This discussion also is one that touches on self-love and what that may look like for many different people. For Jacqueline, self-love meant losing weight. After Jacquline lost 350 pounds and found herself dealing with many complications due to the many pounds of loose skin covering her body she chose to have some skin removal procedures done to rid her body of those complications. Self-love looks different for everyone but everyone should be making the choices that are best for themselves. Another topic that we touch on is not allowing yourself to use the excuse of loose skin as a reason to not lose weight. If you want to lose weight go do that and worry about the loose skin if/when that happens. Don't use that fear as a reason to stay comfortable and complacent. Ultimately it is up to you to make the best choices for yourself. Don't allow those "what ifs" to hold you back from living your best life. Always be thinking about growing and bettering your life and worry about problems and possible complications as they arise.

Setting Boundaries. Why are Boundaries Important When Trying to Change Your Relationship With Food?

In episode 39 we talk all about boundaries. We dig into boundaries specifically in regards to Jacqueline’s eating disorder recovery and changing her relationship with food. Setting boundaries is something that is super hard for Jacqueline but also supercritical to not only her recovery but truly being able to live her best life possible. In this episode, we talk about what setting boundaries looks like, examples of how Jacqueline is setting them, especially around food, and how important it is to help educate others on your wants and needs so they can also learn with you and help support you. We share tips from Jacqueline’s therapist, how Jacqueline is incorporating these tips to work for her. We talk about examples of how changing the common words and phrases others may use around food can tend to trigger us. We dive deep into talking about how other people talk about food around you and changing these conversations can be super important when trying to change your relationship with food. Jacqueline is still working on setting boundaries with her loved ones, but wants to share what she is learning, how she is beginning this process, and how setting boundaries is key for moving forward in life and living your best life possible!

Are The Workouts You Are Doing Enough?

Episode 38 is a conversation about workouts and feeling like your workouts aren't enough. Jacqueline received a comment on an Instagram post talking about a "workout with me video" that she posted to youtube and that comment inspired this week's Never Too Late to Fly episode. Jacqueline talks about where she started with exercise and movement at over 500 pounds and why 5 minutes was enough and how those same 5 minutes are what led to her being able to go to a gym, join a class and follow her own training program now that gyms have been closed due to COVID-19. We talk about how the only person you should be comparing yourself to is yourself as well as why the opinions of others shouldn't determine your actions. When we allow other people's opinions to determine our actions we don't always remember to do what is best for us. Both of us wanted to share that it is so very important to do what you are capable of while at the same time pushing yourself against your comfort zone. When you are trying to better yourself against yourself you will have a much easier time silencing those critics who may not think you are doing enough or that what you are doing wouldn't work for them. We hope that you find it in you to do whatever workouts are best for you and not to worry if someone else doesn't find your workout challenging or doesn't feel like that workout pushes you enough. Challenge yourself and compete with yourself and success will find you.

Jacqueline Ate Pizza and Cake for Her Birthday and Feels Like the Day Was a Success?!?!

Episode 37 is an episode reflecting on Jacqueline's Birthday that passed on Saturday. We talk about the progress that she has been making in regards to her eating disorder and relationship with food. We dig deep as to what she has been doing to see this progress. Jacqueline talks about how talking with her family before her big day led both them and her to know what they should expect in regards to food and meals. Jacqueline shares how having this conversation ahead of time helped her have success on the day of instead of the added stress and anxiety caused by others asking what are we having for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. As someone who is trying to recover from a binge eating disorder, it is a success to enjoy meals throughout the day without having major binges, anxiety, or restriction. Jacqueline looks at her birthday as a bow on top of her progress because of how she felt about the way the day played out and really helped her to see and feel the validation that she is without a doubt making progress with overcoming this eating disorder. We hope that this conversation about Jacqueline's progress gives anyone who may find themselves struggling to know that it is possible to make progress.

Being in a Relationship at 500+ pounds. How do you talk about losing weight?

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.

Positives From Jacqueline’s 350 Pound Weight Loss Journey. What Did She Gain by Losing Weight?

In episode 35, we talk about Jacqueline's 300-pound weight loss journey. Her journey was so much more than just losing weight. There were so many areas of her life that drastically changed because of weight loss. Jacqueline changed not just physically, but mentally. She lost a lot, but what she gained is so much more. She regained her life. This episode dives deep into Jacqueline's life at 500 pounds, and how much her weight loss journey changed her life forever. We talk about her challenges both physically and mentally from weighing over 500 pounds, what life was like after she lost her first 50 pounds, and how she continued on her journey to live her best life possible. There are so many extreme views that people on one side, tell everyone to lose weight, and on the other side think weight loss is bad. We share why we think it is important to find the middle ground and say away from extreme views. We also discuss how doing what is best for you is always the right answer. When we choose to lose weight, if done for the right reasons and because we feel it is best for us, there is no reason why weight loss should not be celebrated. Jacqueline has so much to celebrate about her weight loss journey, and how her accomplishments are nothing to be ashamed of. This episode talks about all of the positive changes that happened along Jacqueline's weight loss journey.

Weight Loss Surgery…Did Jacqueline Have Weight Loss Surgery? Would She Get Weight Loss Surgery Now?

In episode 34 we dive into the topic of Weight Loss Surgery. Did Jacqueline have weight loss surgery to lose more than 350 pounds? Would she consider having weight loss surgery now? We answer these questions as well as everything in between regarding weight loss surgery. The decision to have weight loss surgery or not have weight loss surgery is very personal. Ultimately we feel that weight loss surgery is a tool that can be helpful in the right situation. However, we do not believe that weight loss surgery is some magic spell that will help you overcome an eating disorder, mental challenges, or make you happy and resolve any other challenges that you may be facing. Weight loss is hard no matter if you choose to have surgery or not. Jacqueline shares her reasons for making the decisions she has on her own journey. She also talks about how she feels about being asked if she is having weight loss surgery now. Remember, there is no right or wrong decision here, just the one that is best for you.

How did Jacqueline Find and Eating Disorder Specialist and Why Being Open and Honest is Key to Growth and Progress.

In episode 33 we talk all about how Jacqueline actually found and began talking to her eating disorder therapist. We talk about how she was struggling for years before getting help since she “looked fine and healthy” on the outside. Everyone told her she lost weight and looked great. Jacqueline knew something was not right but did not know how to get the help she needed. She shares how she had to speak up and be an advocate for herself and for her mental health. We discuss what she did to get the help she needed and how she knew that this therapist was the right one for her. Jacqueline gets emotional in this episode because we dive in deep about how being open, vulnerable, and honest with yourself is the most important thing when it comes to recovery and how coming face to face with these challenges can be hard and scary, but so very important. There is no one size fits all when it comes to recovery and Jacqueline shares her path and what she is doing to help her overcome her own struggles. We know it can be scary to ask for help or admit you may be struggling, but asking for help is the strongest thing you can do. 

We hope this episode gives you a little more insight into Jacqueline’s journey and how she found her eating disorder therapist and how she is continuing to keep moving forward one step at a time to live her best life possible. Hopefully, this episode can encourage you to keep doing what is best for you, how important it is to be an advocate for yourself, and to remember it’s ok not to be ok all of the time.
