Stop yo-yo dieting, body shaming and binge eating

I know many of you out there struggle with feeling like you are often on a roller coaster when it comes to your own growth and healing.  You feel like you are making progress but then old patterns come back. I understand how discouraging and frustrating it can be to feel like you are back-tracking, but I want to assure you that you CAN get off the roller coaster and experience growth without major set-backs.

A big area where I see so many people struggle with setbacks is with their body – specifically eating disorders, yo-yo dieting and body hating.

If you can relate to any of that, then episode 93 of Over It and On With It is a must listen.

You’ll hear me coach Alyssa through a very holistic approach to her struggle with binge eating.  Even if an eating disorder or weight is not something you struggle with, I assure you that you will receive value and perhaps healing from listening.  Attune carefully to how I coach her step-by-step through how to approach her struggle on the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual episode.

This is a very important episode. Please listen and share it with your friends and social media tribe.

Here’s a tweet for you: A must listen for anyone struggling with binge eating or yo-yo dieting. (Tweet This!!)

You can break free of patterns that you feel imprisoned by but you must take action. I know many of you have experienced some intense suffering.  But suffering is not a life sentence. You can free yourself…I promise.

Love,
Christine

EP 93: Free Yourself from Yo-Yo Dieting and Binge Eating with Alyssa

EP93v1This episode is about disordered eating and yo-yo dieting. Today’s caller, Alyssa, was diagnosed with an eating disorder when she was younger. She has been to therapy to help her understand abuse she endured as a child, but has not yet overcome the effect it had on her. For Alyssa to experience true healing and transformation she needs to make shifts on emotional, mental, behavioral and spiritual levels.

Many people have the experience of making progress only to see old patterns re-emerge. It can be discouraging and frustrating it can be to feel like you are backtracking, but you can get off the roller coaster and experience growth without major setbacks.

During my coaching session with Alyssa, I held a space of compassion for Alyssa without reinforcing her victim story. There were people who would pity her and people she could blame, but pity and blame are not going to stop her from binge eating. In fact, it would trigger the behavior. We can take our power back by making choices that create change. So, I created steps to help her feel empowered.

A lot of people who were abused hold on to weight as a protective measure. because it’s our body’s response to the message from the mind of ‘I want to hide. I want to be invisible.’ If this resonates with you, listen to the podcast I did with Drew Manning, “Transforming Your Inner Critic into an Inner Coach”.

Consider/Ask Yourself:

  • Do you struggle with gaining and losing weight? Perhaps so much so that you may have an eating disorder.
  • Have you processed your issues and made progress in therapy regarding your past, but the old habits keep coming back?
  • Do you sabotage your health and well-being? Is it hard for you to be disciplined and stick to a plan?
  • Do you feel safe to be seen?

Alyssa’s Question:

Alyssa would like to know how to move past her eating disorder for good.

Alyssa’s Key Insights and Ahas:

  • She has always felt not good enough.
  • She’s forgiven people from her past.
  • She didn’t feel safe as a child.
  • She feels she should be beyond her issue.

How to Get Over It and On With It:

  • She shouldn’t identify with herself as a victim.
  • She needs a behavioral shift to make her feel safe in her body.
  • She needs to send love to a picture of her younger self.
  • She needs to reframe the belief that she can trust people.
  • She should ask God to help to make her feel safe and protected.

Action Steps:

  • If you have a re-emerging pattern like binge eating, what’s the payoff? It’s serving a purpose. Do some journaling as to what purpose it serves.
  • If weight is something you struggle with move, into acceptance. Ask the weight what it needs. When you get the answer, create your own holistic treatment plan. Pick one thing on the behavioral, emotional, mental, and spiritual level you can commit to.
