Topics discussed in this episode:
– Keith talks about how seeing his mom emotionally eat, effected him.
– Looking at your past and how food was used as a way to comfort people.
– Dealing with a partner that is fearing positive changes in your life.
– Open communication is key when we decide to change our lives and our partner isn’t there yet. Don’t tell them what you’re doing, don’t ridicule them for not making the same changes, try to positively motivate them to take the journey with you.Screen Shot 2014-11-24 at 11.59.51 AM
– Model the changes you want to see in others.
– Embracing who you are.
– How our body image has been shaped by television, magazines, and online.
– Lead with love and you’ll always win!
