In this episode, I had the pleasure of interviewing sister clients, Cheryl and Janine.
In 2021, Cheryl was frustrated with having regained weight AGAIN and was contemplating another stint on Weight Watchers. As someone who experienced a history of yo-yoing with no long-term results to speak of, she decided to do something different and brought her sister, Janine, along for the ride.
After working together for 6 months, both women share their experience in the program from two completely different psychological perspectives.
In this week’s episode, you’ll learn:
- The biggest challenges they encountered throughout the program and how they’ve been able to execute the psychological tools they learned to remain consistent in their habits
- Cheryl and Janine share why they decided to try hunger directed eating and how the program helped them identify the dysfunctional eating behaviors they developed as children
- Why participating in the body image course in the program was the game-changer they didn’t know they needed
- What holiday and social eating looks like for them now compared to years previous (hint: no more food anxiety or losing control)
- Both women’s BEST piece of advice for those who fear they’ll gain weight if they stop calorie counting and focus on weight loss through behavior change
