On this episode, Sue and Sarah talk about the issues that do complicate weight-loss, from depression and anxiety, comfort eating, diabetes and heart conditions as well as the deep rooted emotional issues that often are at the heart of being overweight.
Sue shares how the most important thing you can do, is just make a start – to take the very food step. You’ll also hear Sue share her experience of mentoring morbidly obese clients and how she supports them by building a relationship with them – where they’ve been, and they’re struggles.
Sarah also shares how a health scare prompted her to take her health more seriously.
Stay tuned to hear how Sue supports her clients who are morbidly obese to start with small goals from walking to the letterbox twice a day, to being able to tie your shoelaces or dress yourself again – small and sustainable and incorporating self-care and goals that are not just about what the scales say.
