It’s been a long time coming. For those of you who might not know, in the past year and a half I’ve lost about 60 pounds. But it’s not the first time in my life that I’ve done it…
Episode 74 – The Weight Loss Episode
This episode begins with an account of my complicated and lengthy history with food and exercise, including the period of my life where I obsessively counted every calorie I ate and tracked every minute on a workout machine to burn it off.
I’ve gone through two pregnancies, a few career changes, lots of random diets and workout programs, and many lifestyle adjustments, but my relationship with food and exercise remains a complicated one to this day.
And in the midst of so much conversation about the harmful effects of diet culture and body shaming, I felt called to create this episode which includes some of my personal realizations in the past few months that have lead me towards the healthiest year of my life so far.
I’ve learned so much about myself by looking back at some of my ingrained habits, my recurring patterns and emotional responses to life events, and I felt called to share them with you today in this episode.
It’s called The Weight Loss Episode, but it’s so much more.
This episode concludes with the mindset that I’ll be taking into 2020, complete with goals that look VERY different than my weight loss goals in the past.
