Extreme Makeover Season 2 (Jacqui)

Top Quotes From The Season 2

Extreme Makeover Weight Loss Edition

This episode featured Jacqui, a 30 year old who’s starting weight was 355 pounds.

Jacqui began to put on weight at the age of 14, after she was sexually assaulted. It is not uncommon for victims of sexual abuse to gain a significant amount of weight. Sometimes it is intentional. The thought process is that ‘If I’m fat no one will find me attractive. If I’m not attractive no one will ever sexually abuse me again.”

Sometimes it is unintentional. It seems like victims of sexual assault often carry a great deal of shame or guilt. This shame and guilt often evolves into insecurity, self-doubt and a sense of unworthiness.

This is so sad. I can’t imagine how horrible it must be to be a victim of a sexual assault. These victims did absolutely nothing wrong. They are every bit as worthy of good health, confidence, self-esteem and happiness as everyone else. We have to find a way to stop this self-sabotaging emotional and behavioral action that so often follow sexual abuse!

If you or anyone that you know has been a victim please know that you are 100 percent worthy of all of the good things that life has to offer.

I am by no means qualified to offer any type of guidance for people who’ve experience this type of trauma. Please seek out a qualified professional in your area. I can help with nutrition and exercise advice. It can be a team effort!

Now for the quotes from this weeks episode

“It’ makes you feel very alone and very sub-human.”

“It’ just came out and that passion that I have for my future pushed me to something that I didn’t know that I had.”

“I forgot how strong I could be.”

“I have to prove to myself that I can do more than I ever thought possible.”

“I used my weight as and excuse not achieve all of my hopes and dreams.”

“Now I feel like I’m worthwhile and I’m strong. and I’ve done something great and that’s a healthy feeling.”

“The biggest change besides the weight  loss was changing my mind.”

“I could have lost any amount of weight, but if I didn’t chose to love myself and change my mind about how I feel about myself I would still be and empty shell of a person.”

 

Jacqui also took every task, every short-term goal and stayed focused. She never wavered from her program. Because of this she hit every goal and actually lost more weight in one year than any other female client that Chris Powell had ever worked with. She lost 207 pounds.

Way to go Jacqui…you DESERVE IT!!!

Extreme Makeover Season 2 Premier (Tony)

Top Quotes From The Season 2 Premier

Extreme Makeover Weight Loss Edition

Because each episode of this show follows a very similar format, I’ve decided not to go through a thorough run down of each show this season. Instead I’ll mention some key moments and lessons and share them with you. Plus I’ll list the top inspirational and motivational quotes from each show. Hopefully this inspiration will help you to reach your weight loss goals.

The overall take away message that I want to share is that Tony overcame a ton of “real life” obstacles during his year.  Yet he didn’t allow any of them to derail him. He was unemployed, broke up with his fiance, ended up homeless and started a new career in Security. All of this at the age of 49.

Despite all of this he still lost 200 pounds in 12 months!

If he can have that type of success in the face of that much turmoil, certainly you can find a way to reach your weight loss goals.

The time for excuses is over!

Now for the top quotes

“Food makes me happy.”

“Food gave me pleasure, gave me joy, gave me love, I enjoy it.”

“Eating is where I got my joy and love from.”

Tony clearly was an emotional eater. He had a very deep rooted emotional relationship with food. It is very common for people who have this type of emotional connection with food to struggle with their weight. If you identify with this, you’ll need to address your own personal emotional relationship with food to be successful. You will probably struggle if you just focus on the behavioral and habitual aspects of nutrition and weight loss. If you need help with this you should find an experienced counselor in your area.

“I don’t want to die obese. I don’t, I’m scared.”

“It just seem like we’ve both been overweight for so long. It’s kind of hard to know that you’re not going to be obese anymore.”

You’ll also have to overcome any fear that you might have about a new self-identity of “an obese person” to be successful.

“Life does seem unfair at times. But I don’t think that life throws anything at you that you can handle or you can’t change if you have the will or the determination.”

“You don’t have to give up. You just need to dig deep down inside and say, ‘I’m doing to do this for myself’ and you have to love yourself”

Notice the evolution of the language that Tony used from the beginning of the year through the end of the year. This weight loss journey is all about the changes that occur on the inside. You have to change your mind to be able to change your body. Your body is just a physical manifestation of what is happening on the inside.

Start your journey…see you next week!

Motivational and Inspirational Quotes From The Biggest Loser – Season 13 Finale

Here are the Top Inspirational and Motivational Quotes from this week’s episode of The Biggest Loser

It’s Finale Time

I really thought that Kim was going to win this whole thing. She looked incredible She basically hit her goal weight. If she is capable of losing more weight than she did, it’s a very small amount. Because of that she was at a disadvantage. Jeremy lost 199 pounds, over half of his body weight. Kim just didn’t have that much to lose. But Congratulations to Jeremy, to lose that much weight is amazing and he deserves the victory!

There aren’t too many quotes due to the fact that a lot of the finale is made up of flashbacks from the entire season. To see the best quotes from the season just scroll through the blog and you’ll find them.

Anyway here are the quotes.
