Making Personal Connections and Friendships Through Biking
"How is the bike kind of making connections for you differently than it might have a decade ago. Well so a decade ago i. I didn't have the didn't have the depth of relationships that i have now around the bike so i had a few people that i rode with and so on. If we go let's see a decade ago was twenty eight. So i was pretty focused on racing in mountain biking That's a pretty solitary endeavor especially when you're living out of the back of your honda elements driving around the country. Sleeping in national parks and truck stops at this stage. I look as i reflect on my time here. I had to get together the other day with your showed up in a park with some speakers and t you know in a blanket and said whoever wants to show up show up in about half the people who showed up repeating line new through bike so these are people that i was connected to his as an entrepreneur who are also in the bike space. These are people who i've met through writing people who bought you know some of our early bites or their friends. I met a few others that i had met before. Actually that varada are bugs and that was really special and then i was part of a burning man camp. That was you know the the bicycle repair camp and so those people as well. So there's this really strong bicycle theme. That knits together. This patchwork with people in my life. I always find it interesting in my personal connections as well. How different the people are that ride by. You know from the spectrum of sex race whatever its use itself selects around this activity of the bike and around nothing else whereas i don't know if a lot of other things in life that really do it in such a great way this element of Certainly i got my start in a much more competitive sort of paradigm and. It's it's probably no coincidence. That's i didn't have the deep relationships when i was in that competitive mindset that i have now whereas my mindset is is very much one of.

"In the workplace. So have you been told if you return to the office? What kind of office you are returning to And Laura and Mike. I really think and we're awaiting your calls at 1 808 5909571 808 590 W. J. R. You know, we're looking at this. It's you know, you're telling employers you know, we're really urging you to get your people vaccinated. You should think about giving them transportation to vaccination clinics, giving them time off to get vaccinated. All this these kinds of things that employers are supposed to give up in pursuit of that goal. Then doesn't tell them what they get or how their workplace will improve. If you do get the majority of folks vaccinated. It's a little crazy. You don't tell them. You know what the reward is. How many points you get for scoring a touchdown? It just seems like they should be providing them with a little more guidance and Mike and Laura, if you want to weigh in, I welcome that. Guess I'm returning to the office and all that. Yeah. Yeah. You see, I I feel like I've been lucky because I've been coming into the office. It's a sense of normalcy, but Yeah. You know how you get that feeling of dread when you're coming back from like a week's vacation? Could only imagine, you know, compound that with being out of the office for for a year and a half, even if you've been working, and I feel like it be just I mean, I think when we have people back in the building is going to be very tough for us to kind of adjust back to normal, so I can't even imagine how tough it is going to be for people who've been working from home to adjust back to normal coming back into the office. Well, and I really think it's unfortunate. I mean, we've got you know, First of all, so many people I really miss informed on what hip it is HIPPA isn't that people can't ask you about your health information. Hip it is is that your doctor? Can't release it unless you give them permission to that's all it is. And so you know, people say were saying the other day. Well, I You know, I don't want them asking about my my vaccination status because of hip Well, no, they can still ask, you can refuse, but they can still ask. It's not a violation of hip hop for them to say cheese. You know, we would like to reconfigure the workplace because we can have greater collegiate Galati greater synergies. By putting your folks closer together if you've all been vaccinated, in other words, if that's something that they allow them to do, But we can't even give give folks a reward for getting got vaccinated here like taking off their masks. And that's going to come. I mean, without you said over the weekend that the indoor mass restrictions are going to be easing up. The more people we get vaccinated. But if if you've got a cohort of workers and 100% of been vaccinated, this is the time to do it. We can do this now. We've got employers are saying, I don't even feel comfortable asking because people have gotten so sensitive about it. It's it's a real dilemma and kind of a catch 22 in terms of getting back to normal, and you're right, Mike. I think there's a lot of just social anxiety that comes with return to the workplace. Saturday Live had a great skit about how people have lost the The art of conversation and that all you can talk about is you know what you've been doing at home during quarantine.

A highlight from S6 E10 - Real Conversations on Mental Health (w/ Special Guest: Patricia Perkins)
"May is mental health awareness month. And i felt it only right to release an episode focusing on the topic of mental health. Now if you've listened to the podcast for any length of time you've no doubt heard me talk about my own struggles with ptsd depression and mon experiences. Not all that uncommon in the veteran community. What you don't often hear though is from the veteran's spouse and on today's episode. I get to sit down with my wife patricia. As she shares the story of her own emotional journey with mental health diagnoses medications. Hospital stays and a whole lot more. This is the we serve now. What podcast where. I do my best to answer the questions. Veterans and their families are already asking so you can make your post military life your best life by way of introduction my name is aaron perkins i am a us army combat veteran daddy to amazing kiddos. Host of this podcast. If you hadn't guessed. And i am joined today by my beautiful bride patricia. Welcome to the show thank you. I'm so glad to be here excited to talk about a subject that i'm passionate about. Yeah absolutely absolutely well. Great to have you here. I'm i'm incredibly happy that you agreed to be on the show. Usually it is me saying. Hey i'm going to be recording tonight. So if you you and the kids can kind of keep it down a little bit and but really really grateful that you here today. So today was one of many days where you're going through this. I don't know call procedure or treatment treatment. Okay so so. Obviously i went with you. Today is able to accompany you to that treatment and it specifically four depression right and so start with today. Let's start with today in a kind of what happened today. And what the treatment is. And let's start there. Sure okay so. The treatment is called. Tm s it means trans cranial magnetic stimulation menendez Treatment that oddly. Enough stimulates your brain. It's post what is supposed to do is to help the neurotransmitters talk to each other better and it is usually reserved for someone who's tried a few different types of medication for depression but it also helps with like anxiety. Ocd and sometimes even physical pain. Okay so so so. This is not a it. Sounds like it's a noninvasive. It's not a surgery type of thing so basically the way they explain it. It's like electromagnetic therapy. Where like in the old days where they would maybe cut. Open your head and maybe electric your brain things like that but this obviously they're not doing that. You can sit down in this chair. It's kind of like the big dentist chair. They strap you all in and they put this big magnet next to your head in a certain spot at a certain level. It's already been determined by your doctor and it made me last twenty minutes. And then you're you're on your way okay. So is that it's not obviously. I know this right before listeners. This is not like a one time thing. This is one of how many treatments you have to get. Okay so today was off my fourth treatment and i think if i did the math right i have at least thirty three more to go. So it's over a nine week period and because of where we live. I have to drive basically an hour and a half to get there. And then i'm there for fifteen to twenty minutes in the drive an hour and a half and and yeah i i definitely know that. That part in itself is frustrating. The drive so let's go back a little bit now so you're having this it might not be invasive but stewart pretty extreme treatment of kind of remapping your brain right yes. It's it's had some side effects already some some anger some tiredness Brain fog lightheadedness. The way the only way. I can explain it. It's like there's a big garden with a huge gate and there's all these locks and each treatment seems to slowly work open a new lock and then hopefully by the end all the locks will be open and king come open and i can be free of depression anxiety. I don't know if that's going to happen. I have faith that it can happen so hopefully it does happen. You me both you both so so take us back a little bit. How did you get to this point. You know obviously you. Have you know some sort of depression or anxiety or whatever take us back to diagnoses and that sort of thing so i i got diagnosed probably sixteen years ago like actual clinical diagnosis of major depressive disorder and house have severe anxiety. I have d. c. Ptsd so what is so ptsd. I know what is cd. Basically childhood post traumatic stress disorder. And then i have. Ocd okay so so ptsd. Veteran community intimately familiar with cps d c p s de. It is then the so. How did that come about. I mean this this is like you know really getting into the nitty gritty of it a little bit but i had parent you know. I had parents that. They weren't believers not that that makes you any less of a good parent but they were involved with things that they shouldn't have been involved with and they didn't have a good relationship with one another so that meant a very rocky relationship with their children and so without getting into too much and making people uncomfortable. This is a really bad childhood really bad and even in my teenage years there was some other stuff that was really bad. So just you know things that people don't really think about as being post traumatic stress disorder. I've heard other people say. How can you even have that. You weren't a soldier. Well that's not reserved for soldiers or servicemen period. Post traumatic stress can happen after a car accident after your home gets broken into after a traumatic. Any traumatic experience you can. Pdf st right right so so with depression. You were diagnosed. She said sixteen years ago crack and so did the anxiety diagnosis. Come along with that or out of that will work. It was shortly after. I think they at i thought maybe it was just really bad depression and they realized that it was both mint so they started treatment to different treatments who different medications and over the years between the two just the depression and anxiety. I know i've had over sixteen or seventeen medications and sixteen or seventeen. I didn't know there were that many others time for i mean i know. There's a lot of medications out there right. But most i know i i'm gonna go out on a limb here and say most people when they're struggling with anxiety depression or even if they do have a legitimate diagnosis of anxiety. Depression or both. It's okay let me go get this. Let me go try it. You know and then if that doesn't work maybe they go try something else but sixteen or seventeen that that just sounds like an extreme number is sensitive to medications and so what may work for a lot of people. Just doesn't seem to work for me. Or i ended up being allergic to it but i will say that i did. This test called a g. e. n. e. s. t. and it's a dna test and that's something that you're psychiatrists can do for you. There is a cost involved but it will tell you which medications and you know. They're all different classes. Work for your dna type so you have a red section and you should stay away from those. You have a yellow section. That may help. And then you have. A green section is more likely to help with your dna type so that can help a lot of people. Stay away from having to try sixteen or seventeen different medications. Sure sure that that's a really good point. And obviously you. You didn't take that 'til later. Right actually took it last year. Yeah so the break i. I wish i could have taken ten years ago. But i don't think even knew about it and that's another thing i would say. Is you know educate yourself. Don't wait on your doctors to find all the resolutions for you. Like feel free to look and research and bring it up to your doctor. you know. it's a good point. So medication is just one side of the depression anxiety. Ptsd just one side of it before the medication happens. There's something that either. Your doctors realize your families realize or you personally realize something different in me. Something is not working as it's supposed to or it's manifesting in in a certain way and i know that when it comes to ptsd specifically it manifests itself in a lot of different ways. They can manifest itself in anger in inability to focus and chronic pain. In a guilt it can manifest itself in different ways. So let's focus on the. Let's say let's. Let's go with depression right the major depressive disorder. How did that or does that manifest itself in your life. The first time. I realized that i might have an issue with. Depression was actually. I had a really bad episode. After i had caitlin so caitlyn's daughter. Sorry caitlyn's her daughter. Yeah she's fourteen now. After i had her. I was sitting just watching tv. And she was sitting there beside me and her little old bouncy seat. And i actually started having these really dark feelings kind of like oppression and actually that coincided with an anxiety attack as well and actually got rushed to the hospital because they thought i was having a pulmonary. Embolism so they thought that. I had blood clots. I was about to die. You know there was but it was a mixture of depressive episode and anxiety attack which i had never felt before and that really scared me and the doctors were able to put me on medication to help with that. It did not stop it but it did help. Sure sure so what what happens next. You know you're you're on this medication. It's helping look what happens. Is there a point at which you realize. That medication isn't working or isn't working as well as it should. Yeah most doctors will tell you you know. Give it two or three weeks to really get in your system if you don't see any changes or if you see getting worse than you're to want to let us know so that we can adjust or change that medication and over the years. That has happened so often. That i i got to this place and i'll say that it's okay to do this if you need to. Own your closet by yourself and cry for a little while. 'cause you're just overwhelmed and nothing seems to be working and you want so badly to be quote unquote normal. Go have cry. Go eat ice cream or chocolate or something. I don't even care. It's okay to do those things. But i got to this place where i was like. None of this is working. I need something completely different. And i think that's when. I did the insight site testing because most of the medications that i had been put on. Were in my red list more in the list that was for your dna. These are not going to work for you. Oh wow so going through this process and the truth is i didn't even realize this at the time we've been married for fifteen plus years and i knew that kept having different medications tried and you like oh. This is not working but we had no idea why. It's not working until this test. You didn't says hey this might actually work for you Yeah that's that stuff okay. So what about the anxiety piece you know. It started with an executive attack How does that manifest itself or did it manifest itself in your life. So i have an odd anxiety like i have panic. Attacks panic attacks but generally speaking. I'm just anxious and it's like my anxiety and my ocd. Like to just hold hands and frolic through my brain and so what. I'm feeling extremely anxious. I have to clean everything so it's kind of like since i can't control my emotions i can't control what's going on in the world. My brain has to find something that can control and the cleanliness in my house. I can control thankfully because you and the kids are pretty neat people. But i have to do have to be able to do something. Control something to calm down. If i don't do that ended up in the closet crying eating chocolate well like you said. That's okay if you have to do. It's not not not every day but so talked about the depression. Talk about the anxiety. Ptsd how does that manifest itself in your life on a day-to-day basis weekly basis. How how often what does it feel like said the. Ptsd is like a whole different monster. That lives somewhere inside of my person. And the worst episodes i have with. Ptsd is when my children especially caitlyn our daughter when she reaches those age those ages where you've espn we. We had talked about this a little bit today. As we're preparing for the podcast but it was as a recall kind of like the same ages or proxy ages where something traumatic happened in your own childhood right so so then. My brain is like imagine that happening to kaitlin. Imagine that having to our son. Christopher and then it's like this overwhelming like it's not a mama bear feeling is a mama dragon. And it's like i will. I will died to protect but at the same time. It's then there's this the the little girl in me is like. How could my mom have let that happen. How could my dad have let that happen. Where was the the parental. where were they. Why did these things even happened. That i have this trauma but we're all human doing the best. We can now. That i'm older i can. I can look at my pass without being completely angry with my parents because they were just doing their best as well. Sure sure so. We're won't take a break real quick but coming up after the break and now you have a few things that you want to share with our listeners. More as encouragement and continuing the story obviously but also practical steps. Stay with us. Many americans today don't realize the stress and anxiety. They feel is likely because of their finances. According to bankrate.com more than six out of ten people couldn't cover a one thousand dollar emergency seven out of ten. Don't budget regularly. An eight out of ten are living paycheck to paycheck to these describe you. Are you ready to live like others. Can't too many make the mistake of budgeting their lifestyle instead of budgeting their basic needs. I my friend. Marco over at mc business lab has a simple process to automate the basic things.

Second half of the show here with my wife patricia talking about mental health. And it's okay. She's looking at me right now. She's like oh just made a noise like it's okay. Well we'll cleared up. It's fine and so so anyway so here talking to my wife patricia about mental health and about her own challenges and struggles with it. And so obviously there's no one in your corner so to speak. I mean there's the stigma associated with it but there's also no one kind of coaching. You through this of like okay. Well if this isn't working here's what you do right not currently. I've had counselors in the past. You know and they've we've tried to work through things. I have been the hospital couple of times. And i think there's a lot of people who mean well but it doesn't mean it's going to work for you and so i feel it's important that people understand that if you do have a mental illness. It's okay to research an advocate for yourself. You don't have to wait on a doctor or counselor or someone who you feel like is more intelligent or just because they have letters after their name that they know you better than you do feel free. No not feel free. Please speak for yourself. that's huge. That is so huge. And i think that advocating for yourself is such a critical element of getting the help you need. Because when i think of veterans who are struggling right. You know whether whether it's a physical health or mental health concern. They know themselves like better than anyone else knows them and so when they go to the doctor when i as a veteran go to the doctor i have an obligation to myself right to be as honest and as really a as direct as i can like look. This is the problem. This is how. I'm feeling. I'm here for you to help me fix it right. But then there's the stigma especially in the military community. Where if something isn't working right in your brain you're not working right. Oh absolutely that is the stigma is is really and i think the worst thing about mental health diagnoses today at least in america. If not all over the world it absolutely needs to be normalized that your your brain is an oregon and just like your heart and all your heart muscle but you could knees your liver. If any of those things were failing if they weren't working like they were supposed to have so many people around you. Hey what can i do for you. What can i do for your family. Could i get my blood tested to see if i could be donor. How in the world could make your life better but you hear someone is in a three month depressive episode and they can't even get out of bed. I don't see people lining up with casseroles. I don't know. I don't see that happening. You know if you have to leave an event because you had an anxiety attack there's whispers. There's not help this is strong. It is so strong. And there's a you know within the military there is a fear and i will say rightly so that if you say hey i have this particular mental condition it can potentially impact your career and in the civilian world because well as a mom i if another mom i don't know maybe somebody's going to hear this and maybe they don't want their kids hanging out but as a mom you think. Oh can this person actually take care of my kid. While i'm away or is everything issue going to be too overwhelmed. Is she going to have some kind of attack. That i don okay. If you know somebody like that. Just educate yourself right and know that that person wouldn't take on that responsibility if they didn't feel they could handle it. Yeah absolutely and you know. That's a critical point to is. There is so much misinformation out there about mental health. And you know here's the thing. Hollywood doesn't help and i'm not going to rant. I'm not. I'm not trying to say like oh. Don't make movies about people with mental conditions. You know but there is this you know. The joker movie that just came out with a joaquin phoenix. That's joker yeah. Okay so you know. He obviously has a mental health problem. It looks like severe depression and he turns out to be this mass murderer. Right and so people associate edison. He's bipolar but go ahead. Fair enough fair enough so people associate those mental health conditions with something so extreme that they saw on a screen or read an article. now there are extreme cases. it's true. I mean you can't just say that that. No one is that bad off but there are people that bad off that they're not usually the people who look like they're doing okay. There those the people who are really struggling there are more signs right than than you just meeting them. Like if i just walked up to you and said hi. My name's patricia. Perkin tie you doing. You would never think i had five mental disorders right. You know someone. who's that far gone. You know they're going to be showing signs. Oh yeah absolutely for sure for sure and you know the thing is when it comes to mental health when it comes to you know having a a severe enough level of mental health challenges concerns whatever. You wanna call them. If you don't have an official diagnosis right there are so many. I guess levels is probably the best way to put it of of severity. Because you know like saying. Hey i'm feeling depressed for a couple of weeks is a far cry from major depressive disorder right okay. Yeah may i believe probably should have been a little more research but it would be depressed for at least six months before. It is a clinical diagnosis. And so there's going to be events someone dies. A friend moves away. You have to switch jobs then you could go through a you know a few days or a week of feeling depressed. That's normal. yeah exactly. That's the normal depression. That's not the go quick. It'll medication so you can feel better. That's right it's just a normal life happens and you get down and i've even had people say to me. Well you know you have a lot of stuff. You're very blessed. You have a nice home. You have a great husband. Smart kids you you you have you have you have you have. That has nothing to do. With what my brain is doing. I have the intelligence to know that. I a blessed person a blessed individual but that does not mean that my brain is going to let me enjoy all the time. Yeah that's so true. That is so true. And so i just saw an article earlier today from cnbc said fifty one percent of young americans are struggling with mental health. Fifty one percent. I can believe and i think a lot of that if i can just put in. My personal opinion is social media. I'm sure you constantly see people who are throwing up. There highlight reels on instagram. And some of them still on facebook and then those who are throwing out things on twitter but there you're not getting their whole life you don't read what's actually going on. I mean if people looked at my facebook they would see highlights. Because i want to show the good. I don't want to show the days. I don't wanna get out bed. Showed the days where. I'm like begrudgingly. Driving my kids to school because i have to. I'm an adult to do these things. You don't see those things and especially the generation under us. They're so obsessed with social media that they think that's real life. I mean i have a good life. But it's not insta worthy like everything. I do isn't gonna be popping up on instagram. Because it's not real life right. That's just advertising then like you said it's just highlights right. Yeah and so. I want to go back to the stigma piece for just a minute. Because that's a piece that i'm really passionate about and you know in the military you know being healthy being fit to fight. That's part of the job if you're broken your broken leg unit can't use you to go to war right. You have to get that leg fixed. I if you're broken mentally your unit may not be able to use you to go to war because like there's something wrong with you and like the. The thing is with the stigma. It's okay in you know outside of the military that things that your body or your brain is not working like it's supposed to and i've heard so many veterans so min- countless veterans really be rating their brothers and sisters in arms when they talk about having. Ptsd like your combat. Experience was different than mine. Therefore you don't have ptsd or you can't be depressed or you can't be anxious like you're just whining because you want to get paid from the va. You want the va to take care of you. That's ridiculous it. It really is our veterans out there who just looking for that that extra little bit of money out a month sure. There are but by and large the majority of veterans who who are having the courage to stand up and say. Hey i got something wrong in my brain. It's not working like supposed to. They should be applauded and say you know what that is. Surreal courage that you having right now to go and say i need help. Yes it takes a ton of courage and just in time out of being a military spouse and then my time out of it and interacting with veterans and even people who are still currently serving. They they have these but they don't even know how to say it out loud. They will become an alcoholic. But there's nothing wrong with me. I had no problem with war. Or when they get out of the military you know they get hooked on drugs. Oh in the military didn't affect me very much. I'll have i don't have any. Ptsd that that crazy stuff you know or all of a sudden. They're wife isn't good enough. Their kids aren't good enough and they want to be away from them at all times. They don't want that interaction but they say they're fine because they're afraid to say i might be broken inside and might need some help. So instead of having the courage to say that they are literally ruining their lives in other ways right what alcohol would drugs with breaking up their homes with neglecting their responsibilities. That's may there's so much i want to. I want to fix it right. I want to fix the stigma. Problem wanted but there is no easy way to do it. But i think what we're doing right here is having the conversation for the world to hear that. Look it's not just veterans. It's not just veteran spouses. It's according to that article. Fifty one percent of young americans who are struggling with some sort of mental health condition right regardless of what title you go by better in active duty man woman boy girl. Mental health is no respecter of persons. I'm sorry mental illness right. No you're right and mental health needs. You know it doesn't matter who you are. What are what color you are just like any like. I said any other body part in any other thing. That may need attention. Don't be afraid to give it that attention. Don't be afraid to speak up and speak out. Don't let the stigma hold down. Yeah for sure so from our conversation today. I know we're running up on time. So we're gonna wind this down and you know. Obviously you and. I have talked about this a lot and me in the future. I'm sure we will get you back on the show and talk and talk about about this and how fixing your life especially how the team s treatment is grain because he you know. I'm not afraid to talk about right. My inner demons especially can help somebody else. I feel like i feel like god puts us through situation so that we can help other people and if we can't take the bad and turn it around and help someone than what's it for and i have to have faith that it's it's to help others. Sure sure so. We have alluded to these three big takeaways right like the big takeaways from this episode. We've alluded to them throughout the episode. We've talked about them. We've even said them but remind us remind listeners. What those big three takeaways are from listening to this. I would say the first one is to advocate for yourself like i said. Don't be to research. Don't be afraid to figure out what might work for you. Ask for the jewish site testing. Ask for even if you've been on medication for a long time talking about the s you know there are other ways to go about it than just constantly saying in that cycle of pill after pill after pill with no results there. There is light at the end of the tunnel. So don't be afraid to say. Hey i think this might help me. What do you think. Don't wait on them. The second one i would say is. Don't let the stigma prevent you from seeking help Let's there is nothing wrong with you. If you have mental illness nothing like innately wrong review. You are just a person who is struggling and number three. I would say no that you are not alone like you were saying that article fifty one percent of young americans. This isn't even us. The older americans during these are young americans who were struggling. You're not alone. find group. fine fine started group. It right to you know. Don't don't stay alone either. When you isolate yourself things. Things often get worse so definitely seek out others who may have similar problems going on that you can talk through to to have some sort of accountability with and accountability is huge. It is huge and those are the three big ones. But i wanted to add one more. And it's something that i've done personally and it has to do with what i was talking about with social media and it's so funny because our pastors just said at this sunday delete block. You do not have to look at sally. Suzy sampson's and wish it was yours. Delete her blocking her. If if watching her highlight reel is taking your joy. Delete her if mr man who has it all together all the money all the muscles and the most beautiful wife you've ever seen if that stealing your joy delete him bought him because you need to focus on you and yours is so good. That is so so good so patricia. It is been an amazing conversation with you. I wanna thank you personally. Thank you for your courage to come on the show and talk about not just health in general but your own mental health your own struggles with the diagnoses. You know you've had hospital stays as a result had so many things going your life and so thank you so much for talking about this important topic with us you know. We all have a lot of questions but the most important question you can ask yourself is. This have accepted the forgiveness of sins. That only comes through faith in jesus christ and before we go one thing. Patricia wanted me to point out was earlier. she referenced. cpt. St and she called it childhood. Ptsd it is actually complex. Ptsd would she informed me of later in complex. Ptsd is brought about from long term trauma that might be physical emotional sexual abuse own going childhood neglect things like that. It could even be a prisoner of war type of situation that brings about complex. Ptsd so just clarification. There that that was what she was referencing in the second. Half of the episode. You may have heard probably did hear a lot of clicking in the background while that clicking was my burien husky running around on a hardwood floor and unfortunately we can't edit that out he just kind of made a cameo appearance on the podcast so that dog is the way i deal with my ptsd and depression having a pet. It just helps a lot so anyway. Thank you so much for listening. It has been a joy sharing our hearts with you today. Be sure to check us out on social media. We at facebook at courage to fight again. Instagram also occurred to fight again and twitter at courage again and check us out on our website at courage to fight again dot com a whole lot. More resources there well until next time.

NTSB Releases Preliminary Report on Fatal Tesla Crash
"Everybody around here and we've got quite a lot to go through. We've got an update from the national transportation safety board on the highly publicized accident involving accessible vehicle in texas a couple of weeks ago. We've got news on tesla. Energy manufacturing batteries and of course elon musk's appearance on saturday. Night live over the weekend rough start to the week. Four tesla's stock finishing down nearly six and a half percent today to six hundred and twenty nine dollars four cents that compared to the nasdaq down over two and a half percent the worst day in a couple of months for the nasdaq and we did see sector rotation today the dow was only down a tenth of a percent as the dow is generally made up of lower growth more value oriented stocks. So i know the tesla down. Six percent can sometimes feel a little bit rough especially for new investors but for context arc's innovation. Etf so a group of a lot of different stocks was down by itself five percent today. Obviously tesla driving a portion of that but certainly the movement was not just isolated to tesla. Today before we get into the news here you may have heard already but my voices still recovering a little bit. So i'll do my best to get through this but apologies for any disruption from that. I i up today. We are revisiting the unfortunate accident back in mid april of decimal ice vehicle in texas. As i'm sure most of you remember this received a ton of media attention because at the time law enforcement said that they were one hundred percent certain that no one was in the driver's seat of the model s. at the time of impact. You may remember that. At the time we went through a number of different reasons why the seemed implausible. And i felt like law enforcement was speaking far too soon saying they were one hundred percent certain of something without even having done a full investigation yet so too soon too much conviction and this led to massive media coverage of this accident. A lot of scrutiny. For tesla you've got consumer reports coming out and running some test about how they can defeat these safety features built in to help prevent people from using autopilot beyond its intended use case just keeps getting piled on all because of this one quote from law enforcement so here we've got the preliminary report from the ntsb quote. The crash trip originated at the owners residents near the end of a cul de sac footage from the owners. Home security camera shows the owner entering the car's driver seat and the passenger entering the front passenger seat. The car leaves and travels about five hundred and fifty feet before departing the road on a curve driving over the curb and hitting drainage culvert a raised manhole and a tree

Who Will Take La Liga Glory?
"Row madrid. I thought severe played off the park in the first half playing without a without a recognised striker. This was a hangover. And is this another example of china that madrid never say die until the end quality that or just sheer dumb luck that they got the equaliser in in in in such a such a way. 'cause shot was definitely going out. I thought not talking watching severe. I was kind of brought to mind some of those performances from boss loaned kouadio la where just had the to just moved it and moved and moved and keep moving and it was the degree of control was was really quite something and watching up close because i was ever says well it was. It was very very striking the ease with which severe seemed to be able to control the game. It's true huge amount of challenge. But they were much much side although madrid did react in terms of your your question about is this real madrid. Always finding the life last night that they didn't win made me think well you know this talks didn't find a way for but actually if you look at the table and the way as now that nine minute goal from tiny crews redden has depending on who you're giving it to actually could be huge because it keeps row madrid's about boss alone them and it also puts it in a position now going into the final four games that yes the league titles athletic images hands but if not let's go produce much draw now it goes back into roman hands and obviously without that goal they would have needed outlets country to lose one of those games.

Juan Sebastián Elcano Was Actually the First Person to Circumnavigate the Earth
"Ferdinand magellan is often credited with being the first person to circumnavigate the earth. However this isn't true. I don't mean this in the same way that columbus wasn't the first european in the americas because the vikings made it to newfoundland. I i mean magellan never circumnavigated the earth at all period. The magellan voyage did not set out travel around the world. The purpose of the mission was to find a western route to the spice islands. Or what we now call indonesia.

Last two full years the total crew consisted of two hundred and seventy minute at the start mostly spanish but with crew from many different countries. The expedition took a major toll.

Fifteen twenty one. Magellan himself was killed in the philippines by the natives of the island where they landed. He was surrounded and killed with spears. This left the expedition. In a quandary. Its leader was dead. Over half the crew were dead and they were on the other side of the world. They sailed around without any purpose for about six months. And eventually the crew selected one wants fashion elcano a spaniard to be the captain of the last remaining in smaller ships of the fleet.

I get it up for a minute one hundred percent. I don't have a problem but even though it goes down before. I can reach climax satisfy my partner. I don't have a problem. That's a problem. That's a problem for everyone. Yes vault a minute. And in fact. That's a form. Form of erectile dysfunction as called venus league where guys can get a good erection but they just can't maintain that erection and this is a very devastating form of erectile dysfunction because it affects young men. And how does it affect young men. What is it is it something. that's genetic. is it saying. Well it's just might be something that they acquired from say some trauma some injury or some something like that but a lot of guys. It's a genetic problem and it's the inability of them to hold out blood in their penis and the analogy. That i always get my patience. Is that imagine you had a faucet and you had a bucket and someone said hey you got to carry a bucket of water from the faucet over to that point. Be fossa works. Great water flows in great but so enroll a hole in the so. By the time you get over to point b. half the waters leaked out already. So you're not gonna have much water in that bucket. So that's the kind of e. Ed that younger men get and a lot of older men. Get as well okay. So that's one kind of since you were just talking about. I always say that gets this umbrella. Penis challenges like it's just you you can. You can't get hard or they you get hard you can't say hard and it's a problem and says there's pain involved form of pain and it's painful it's painful relationship it's painful so let's talk about. How much of these pitas challenges are mental and not necessarily physical small percentage. We're talking about ten percent of erectile. Dysfunction is due to psychological services. And there's things like you know stress anxiety You know those. Those will contribute to erectile dysfunction Expectations being inappropriate. You know those will contribute erectile dysfunction. But it's really a small percentage about ten percent is due to what we call. Psychogenic erectile dysfunction the vast majority so cruelly.

The Million Dollar Baby
"I was twenty six weeks. And i had sadie. She was one pound. Six ounces at birth was not breathing on her own. She had a lot of complications when she was first born Within the first two days of her being born they said she had a fifty fifty chance of living because not only of her size but she was also bleeding in her lungs because they were super underdeveloped so she was hemmorhaging thankfully she pulled through that but she had to be intimated four different times within the first month of her life tummy. Learn a little bit. Just about the nick you well did. The environment look like how often unable to visit her so since she was born. I was still a patient myself for nine days. So i was in and out of going between the nick you in my room so we were able to be there and kind of constantly go back and forth and visit her so at least somebody was with her almost twenty four seven but i would say the first six weeks for her was probably her most trying times. It was when we went through the most difficulty. She had you know echocardiogram since she had laser eye surgery and she had you know all these complications in things going wrong in the other rooms. You're hearing one. Another baby is having difficulty or maybe needs to be intimated or something is going wrong. So you're hearing all that on top of all the alarms going off and bells so sadie loved to either. Go app nick where she would stop breathing or oxygen levels would go really low so you can. You're just watching the monitor and seeing like ding ding ding. And it's getting louder and louder and louder as levels go down along with sadie in the neck you. I think it was a hundred and five days so like three and a half months so we spent a few holidays in there. I literally can't imagine what would be going on in my head for one hundred. How survived one hundred and five days of that
"half" Discussed on Half Size Me
"I think one of the first things you're gonNa tell me to stop eating my Pudding Cup and I'm like known home would never tell you tell you that but what's so funny is this is? We put the delayed gratification into practice. And now she comes back two months later her and says you know heather for years eight pudding cups because I thought it was okay. It was like an okay treat food to have and still be focusing on weight loss. But did I don't even know if I really like pudding cups yet. That was what I was holding onto in which she found was because she did this delay gratification and she was pre tracking a treat in every day. Hey there was other treats. She really liked better than the Pudding Cup but because she felt the Pudding Cup in some kind of weird way was was kind of diet friendly she he was holding onto that right and so now she's got treats in her freezer things in our pantry and she she said you know some nights. I don't necessarily have to eat it. I have things in my house. I wouldn't have had before but this is after months and months of her doing. So you're going to once you do this escape if we need to continue on with the regimen but it will start to normalize how you feel around treats they won't feel so charged for you because you know every day you can have one. There's IT's already protracted and delayed gratification piece comes in where I'm assuming some days you're exposed to many options right like maybe at a workplace. Please do you come across donuts or cookies. Do you ever have a situation like that Yeah and how do you normally handle those. How do I normally handle them there? I won't go go. It depends on the day. Like I'll decide that. Yes I'm going to go grab laugh. And then that's it for the day or just wore walk by where they are so it's just it's just how I feel in the day but sure if it's a day that I'm feeling low and I feel like I'm just going to have it. I'll make sure I grab them and if it's not I just keep myself away from where they are so very intentional. I guess yeah it's intentional but it's also you're making the decision in the moment based on how you Ashfield. Is that correct Italy delay gratification. We're going to remove that so part of what you're going to be doing setting a timeframe for yourself so let's just say and the process will walk you through this. It's going to help you identify when you normally would start. Consuming treat foods. Okay unless just pretend for a lot of people in the the. US Mid afternoon. Two thirty three o'clock they might go grab a candy or something like that right so you identify when you do it and what you're going to be looking at as pushing pushing back the time window on when you consume your treat so you know you're having every single day but you're pushing back the time a little bit to getting it to where for it's less it's less of the percentage of the day that you have treats because for many people maybe you're not one of them if they were to eat the candy at work at three o'clock they may they then start craving more sweet things or more treat foods and they may have a hard time stopping you ever find yourself in that position. Yep on a restaurant so with delayed gratification edification it removes the decision making because here's what I see. That happens when you say how do I feel today. I feel Kinda crappy there's doughnuts Let's have a donut. What you're doing is in that moment when you make the decision to eat the donut right then in a way what happens is we almost give ourselves an unexpressed permission to go completely off plan? So if you're feeling superstrong day it might just be the donut. But let's just you say you're really having a hellacious day and then someone else comes in with cookies and somebody else comes in and says. Hey let's do an ice cream bar at work today or someone invites you out for drinks and in an appetizers you see how quickly if your mind is in that space of it's a crappy day and you've already had the doughnut I kind of already messed up today. So let's just ride this wave for the rest of the day whereas with delayed gratification. You're going to actually keep a container with you. It can be container in your desk. It can be one in your purse. It can be a court size ziplock bag. It can be a small tupperware container and what you're going to do is you're gonNA remove decision decision making from the moment you're going to see that. Don't go man. I absolutely and how you talk by the way about these foods matters very much. Okay so I absolutely can have that doughnut. That is totally doable for me. I'm GONNA pop that Sucker in my tupperware container and then today day when I get to my time window where I have my treat. That's already been P- retract. I can make a decision then not now. Not when I'm feeling kind of crappy. Yeah I get to make the decision then. It might be three o'clock in the afternoon for you could be five o'clock. I don't know what your exact time window will be. You'll designate that but you'll make the the decision on the donut then not in the moment when you're faced with it because that's where the critical moment happens if you make the decision in that moment. EAT The donut. You've given that unexpressed permission for you to be going eating. Whatever it's like a permission slip has been signed whereas if you put it in a container? It's safe breath it's yours you can absolutely have it. We've already been clear about that. But you're not gonNA make the decision in that moment. Do you see what I mean. You free yourself of the burden burden of that decision and so when I lay all this just these thoughts out here is all of this feeling different than what you normally do. Yeah Kodaly Yeah. Does it feel doable. Yes absolutely doable. I could do that So we're GONNA start you. I'm GonNa send you the escape. The Food Prison coaching cast us in that. We're going to go much much much deeper into this whole process and it's going to be more specific to you but here's what I want to walk away with your number. One focus is what is. Is it weight watchers. Is it the binge eating. What is the main focus? You have to focus on right now. It's the binge eating. I mean yes. 'cause I wanNA just eat normally I wanna take that piece away because it just does nothing but wreak havoc my eating. So it's binge eating and normalizing your relationship with food because what I've assessed from what you've told told me what I'm hearing is that you're good at white. Knuckling it sometimes but then depending on how you feel you might go down that slippery path of eating eating all the sweets and all the fun foods because you maybe aren't having them really routinely and once you start you can't stop no true. Yes Yep Eh normalizing your relationship with foods and getting the binge eating under control. The third thing that we're going to be doing is every single day like clockwork like you brush your teeth. You're going to pre plan a treat for that day in the coaching cast again. I'm going to walk you through that process on how to do that. And do it correctly for you. Based on your goals and what you're working on but you're gonNA preplanned a treat for the day and then the fourth thing that we're going to immediately take action on is you having a container a tupperware container. Something that you can save your treat in that you're faced with in the moment so the preplanned treat could be anything and I even tell people this. If you don't know what you're going to want come seven o'clock at night you know. You could just put in a calorie allotment and say treat. You could leave it very vague at. I don't know but some of my clients know exactly what they want. They're like no heather. This is my favorite thing or I love ice cream. So I'm GonNa have a pint a halo top or they they know. But if you're in that mode where there's just nothing in that moment that sounds specifically great to you. You're still going to be a lot the calories to it even if you end up not wanting not thing like you can swap it out but anything you're faced with the day like you go to work. There's cookies brownies. There's doughnuts oh nuts you're just gonNA box it up and you're going to hold onto it and you're going to ask yourself later. Do I want this or do I want my P- retract treat you get to make that decision decision. You see what I mean. So we're taking the decision making off so these are just the baby steps to get you started. Does all of that field doable for you. At does is totally. And what will happen when this relationship with the treats starts to normalize when you see your binge eating starting to go down because you're having serving treats every day and they're not kind of like these supercharged things that you're you're kind of going off and then saying I'll get back to it tomorrow or two days from now or whatever you will be able to hit your calorie targets more consistently so there won't be like these days where you're white. Knuckling it you're hitting it you're hitting it and then you've got three or four days off the rafters and You are you currently tracking those days that you're binging in having all this stuff I only I only put down. What you you know the good part of my day? If my day goes Corley I never put that stuff in. But I'm really good at tracking the other stuff. I am not account. I know I'm not uh-huh okay. So here's the deal. Whether you ever decide you want to track completely or not getting this behavior under control is only going to work to. Your erred managed. Because what I see for most people when they do binge. You're looking at on the low end five hundred calories over maintenance. It can be several thousand over maintenance nets right so what happens on those days. Let's just pretend for second. You actually are taking a calorie deficit on the other days. It doesn't only sometimes cause you to maintain contain over the course of time. It can cause you to be gaining weight and I think you mentioned that your weight had gone back up. Is that correct. Yeah Yep Yep so when we think about the thing that you mentioned at the beginning you said Heather I just want to be kind of content. Right I just WanNa feel good really what you're saying is you don't WanNa feel like you're on this roller coaster ride of some days. I'm quote unquote good and some days. I'm fallen off the rafters and I'm kind of ending up in this really sabotaging position. You WanNa see a more normal eating behavior. Is that correct I do and I want to lose you. Know Twenty pounds in the process Yes I I know. I won't be happy here. I'M NOT GONNA I don't WanNa say where I am now. I want to get to. I WANNA lose the twenty but be happy and and at peace with yes and get off the roller coaster binging and the you know. I'm on a diet. I'm on a diet all the time absolutely and the truth is I have no doubt you could probably Oblique doing what you're doing now. If you really wanted to just really cut back on certain days could eventually lose that twenty pounds. Yes do. I think you're gonNA stay there with this behavior. The answer is no. I don't and I see this a lot. I get people who contact me for one on one coaching and they have lost weight but they're still struggling with with this what. You're struggling with the struggle. With treats they struggle with that relationship with food. They struggle with binging. And they're gaining the weight back doc. So they've lost it but now they're gaining it back. And so to my way of thinking I would prioritize this getting this in check I get the treats normalized once you feel good with that once. You're rocking it. You're noticing you're not having these off days and they've really decreased then I'd start looking at really really focusing on taking that calorie deficit because then you can actually get to the weight. Go you want. And you'll stay there because as long as this behavior is happening it's it's a sabotage behavior. And here's what happens with with maintainers or would icy with maintainers is the magic in the Mo Jo. We're off after a while. We're maybe they can restrict enough to offset the binging and the out of control eating but the longer they do it and they're really not trying to make any new progress. It kind of becomes a self defeating cycle where they're they're basically. They're kind of losing interest in the process and they lay off those extreme restrictions. And and now they're they're having more binged as than they are restricted days. Do you see what I mean by that. Yeah it's kind of like they mentally just get worn down from the the whole process and so for yeah. Yeah it's exhausting and think about it. What is it eight years of maintenance now? Yeah I mean if I I had to be doing this behavior for eight years. I don't think I'd have been able to keep my weight off so i WanNa see you get this in check for yourself now. Was this helpful for you today. First off very helpful. Yes thank you absolutely. So what I'd love is if you could hang on the line with me for second on get your information so I can send you the escape. The Food Prison coaching cast. Okay and then I'd love for you to check back in with me after you complete that and let me know how you're doing with that behavior. Does that sound good. Yes that's some good.

"I think all women need to focus on this. It just becomes. When do you want to choose to do it so for you. I would encourage you the based on the knee and the hip issue to definitely definitely find a trainer. Make sure they're modifying. What you're doing to fit you. Were ability level working on you building strength in a way that safer for you just a couple of tips Barbara. When you go in have a list of questions one. Do you have any references that I can call in check into. They should have worked with other people who have had issues similar to yours and worked on modifying plans for them second thing set a timeline. I'd like to work together for about six weeks order so many months so I can see if this is going to be the right fit for me and what I want to begin doing building strength but I WANNA make sure I have a program that works with all these issues like you go in and direct the show you don't leave it up to them and that way you feel like you're empowered and by putting a deadline in place with that does is it frees you from getting being sucked into a relationship. That might not be serving you if you find out the think this trainers a good trainer. You think that they had good references. Everything seemed on the up but then you realize it's not working. If you never put a deadline in there you might feel compelled to continue on with them and not know how to break off that relationship but by setting that deadline on on the front end you say okay. I'm going to do this for two months. At the end of the two months you can reevaluate and say am. I getting the treatment that I feel I need. Is this relationship helping helping me and if not then you start looking for somebody else or if you are enjoying it you just say you'd like to continue for another six months. Whatever it is that you feel comfortable with but remember. You're the customer you're the one that sets the precedent but a trainer. A good trainer should help motivate you. They should help make it easier for you. They should know which things is to watch out for that you so you don't get injured in any way and they should be able to help you build strength really at the level that you're at now so those are all the things. I would focus Cassamba again. It would be the calories and it would be the protein and then it would be the subsequent physical activity but yes my dear seventy two. You absolutely can do this. You have the right attitude the right reasons for wanting to do this so now. It's just a matter of putting those pieces into play. Our next question comes from Charlotte. She says I've been listening to your podcasts for about a year now and I'm beyond grateful for the advice resources an encouragement that you offer your listeners beyond that you've helped me immensely in my understandings innings of the weight loss process however I'm having a lot of trouble even getting started and haven't managed to lose an ounce. I've actually gained more weight and my tends to do. I just can't seem to get a grip on the momentum is extremely frustrating in a feeling very discouraged. My question is this and granted. I'm sure this isn't my only problem. What if the habit I can't sustain. Is All the protein consumption. It's really difficult for me to hit the protein goals every day in addition to the fact that I just don't enjoy it on a typical day. I'll have eaten about fourteen hundred calories worth of eggs chicken and broccoli salad beans nuts and I feel satisfied trying trying to hit. The protein goal feels like I'm eating too much food on top of that. I don't want to have protein shakes. Eat more meat and I can't really eat dairy do I have. I have to eat all that protein any help you could give would be amazing. Thank you so much other Charlotte Alright Charlotte good question so I do have a product that will be coming out shortly shortly called pump up the protein and this is a teaching tool kit geared toward people very similar to Charlotte. There are people who either don't really know how to figure out what protein goals to set. They're not really sure how to go from where they currently are to that limit how to make it enjoyable all of those factors so that teaching toolkit when it's available. Charlotte would be right up your alley. Ali But until then let's talk about this so going back to my question here from Barbara just a minute ago the same thing that applies to a seventy year old would apply to you in the sense sense of what is the most important if you're thinking of the hierarchy of Fat Loss Aka weight loss. It's calories. I protein comes second. Protein is an assistant to the calories and what I mean by that is if you need to eat fourteen hundred calories and you eat fourteen hundred calories and of course I know most of everyone listening to this as heard about the twinkie Diet they've heard about the snickers diet I mean people have done the donut dia basically where they eat these fun foods to their Calorie alary limit to prove a point that you can lose weight doing that. You can actually improve your body composition doing that. You can actually lean out doing that and so it's been proven that pretty not much any food at that calorie target will cause weight loss to occur. The reason protein is a great assistant to the Calorie. Goal is because what protein does is. It knocks down hunger but what you're telling me. Charlotte from your question here is you're already satisfied. You're already eating foods that leave you feeling in content. So maybe the goal of the protein you're shooting for right. Now would actually be more sabotaging to your overall weight. Loss goals then helpful. If you were telling me the opposite visit Heather Man I'm trying to hit fourteen calories every day but I am ravenous and I look at your food log and I see wow she's barely eating any protein or very low protein consumption. My recommendations nations coach might be led to Jack up that protein because what that's going to do is it's going to help satiate you to actually hit the fourteen hundred calorie target so number wine. You're not struggling with that so that tells me that maybe shooting for that higher protein goal is actually more harmful than helpful in this particular situation the other area that protein. Tina's helpful that also is good for the general weight loss is it helps to retain muscle mass so as women cycle weight loss over and over again and they do lower calorie diets cleanses whatever and they don't consume enough protein their body naturally. Let's go of muscle and the only way you would really know. This Charlotte is if you were doing doing something like a dexter scan the scan now you stay on your weight. Loss plan a fourteen hundred calories. You don't really prioritize protein. You have another one you might find that you lost. Maybe equal parts fat equal parts muscle and the only way you would really know that is through that scan so the reason that that is helpful in weight loss to eat the protein is because it preserves the muscle however there is a large range of what is considered good to do that goal some people might say his lowest point eight times uh-huh kilograms of body weight. Some people say one gram per pound of body weight. Some people say one gram per pound of lean body weight. There's so many different variations out there a general rule of thumb though just generally speaking if a woman's falling somewhere between one hundred and one hundred twenty grams of protein. That's usually sufficient amount to preserve serve the muscle tissue generally speaking if you're throwing things like string training if you're talking about somebody who maybe is carrying a little bit more muscle mass or if you're a little bit older under it might be helpful for you to be consuming more but what I want to prioritize. Here's what is the goal if your goal is weight loss and what you're trying to do with the protein in is causing it to where you're overshooting your calorie deficit than that is not helping the goal if you said my goal is. I WANNA lose weight and retain as much muscle mass as possible well then obviously prioritizing a certain level of protein would definitely be a good idea but you may not need the number that you're shooting for which again. Charlotte did not give me that she didn't say. Here's the amount of grams I'm shooting for. Here's what I'm actually doing so I'm kind of having to fill in the gaps here but my point is this. If you WANNA lose weight you must be in a calorie deficit visit if whatever's going on with your belief about the protein is causing you to self sabotage than you need to let that belief go and say okay. What can I fill my fourteen hundred calories with at that. I enjoy that I will eat and that I can successfully hit my calorie target over time as you become accustomed to doing this or maybe if you do get into spring training thing or if you do get more concerned about muscle mass you can always look at bringing more protein in if necessary but don't let a sub goal trump trump the primary goal and that's what I see a lot of people doing the get very confused on what their goals are and or what are the most important pieces to achieve that goal because they're so much information out there coming out all at the same time that we might start to get confused on. What's the most important so Charlotte for you dear. It is making sure you're hitting that calorie target. It sounds like what you're eating is extremely satiated to you and what you may want to do is just make a mark of where your protein is now and if you progress in this and find that you're not physically glee satisfying anymore. Maybe you're dealing with a little bit more hunger issues. Maybe looking at making a change then to your protein but you don't have to do that right away and you don't have to overly obsessive about the protein routine especially if it's not helping you get to your ultimate goals so I hope that helps you out all right that wraps up our questions from the VIP newsletter. If you would like like to submit a question go to have seismic dot com forward slash. VIP and now we are going to dive into my call with Sandra aright lovely listeners. We have a wonderful treat for you. Today we have Sandra on with us and she is wanting to get some help today. So I'm GonNa let her say Hello Oh and then dive into what she's been struggling with as of late so Sandra go and take it away my dear. Hello I've been struggling with nearing maintenance and I've been eating somewhat restrictive food plan with no sugar enough power but it seems like every one hundred days or so I slip up and I've binged on on sugar and flour and I it was over the holidays at the end of the year for about two months and then in just recently in the past week so I'm just fresh off experience again all right so bell every three months. You kind of abandoned what you're doing. It sounds like and then it does this last a week two weeks. About how long does it last. The first one was live probably about a month overall because we traveled for Christmas and before Thanksgiving so hey restarted started on January first basically and then I did really good I I lost the fourteen pounds that I gained and the past week it was a sickly and weak their kids one day in the middle and I got back on plan but then I flipped off off again and did you gain any weight during that one week yes it will take about five pound but I'm not sure how is it floating or not so you've had two instances of the San. How long grand total have you been attempting to do the no sugar no oh flower approach. It's been about a year and a half. Are you at a kind of a wait. You are happy maintaining right now. I would like to blue's. Maybe another pepin count. That's kind of a struggle area for me also okay so in this year and a half other who than the one month that you went off for the holidays. Have you consistently been focusing on weight loss or were you at all trying to maintain in there but finding it's a struggle struggle has that year and a half been nothing but weight loss no it was about six months of weight loss and then about six and have maintenance before I had that first bench months and maintenance it. It was okay we gradually add in food like more grains and more protein and more fruit so I I liked right being able to add my food and see that my wait could stay stable but I always regretted. Read it a little bit that I hadn't tried to lose another five to ten town and I'm not sure really why because I am fairly fairly happy with your body at this time and that's a plate I hear from every woman no matter what weight she started at no matter what weight Cayennes ad. It's that sense of dissatisfaction with where you are right now and just that you know if I could get that other seven. I thought you were going to say the number ten because that's usually what did I hear. You know if I could get that last ten pounds off heather. I'd feel so much better but would you really like once you get that other ten pounds off then. It's like Whoa wait a minute. Maybe just five more because I still see something here on that loving right this very moment and so it's kind of like we're always moving the bar just a few feet further a few feet further. It's never allowing ourselves as women to feel like we're we're okay the way we are. We're good the way we are so grand total in that six six months..

"Healthy body image is the last one that I'm going to share from the American Pediatrics Association. Approximately half of teen girls and one quarter of teen boys are dissatisfied with their bodies bodies. These numbers are higher overweight teenagers. Body dissatisfaction is a known risk factor for both eating disorders and disordered eating higher scores of body disatisfaction are associated with more dieting and unhealthy weight control behaviours. Both boys and girls reduced physical activity girls and more binge eating. Im- boys so what we want to keep in mind is how do we help create positive body image one. We don't segment anyone out. We work on this together. We work on building in our bodies up getting them healthy getting them strong but we're doing it as a family unit and we're not talking about wait. We're not shaming anyone's body including our own own were being super positive about what body's doing what they provide us because really in all honesty you wouldn't be here listening to this facebook live. You wouldn't be doing all of these things. If you didn't have your body your body wonderful I mean really you wouldn't get to be caught your conduit to living life and if we can help our kids see that and work on it as the family unit. It's really going to change how view it all right so if pediatricians what is the role of the pediatrician in this one concerns me because again and I know a lot of parents have come to me and said my kid's pediatrician says blank so this is again from the American Academy of Pediatrics the role all of the pediatrician and prevention of Obesity and eating disorders and adolescence observations that can be concluded from current research summarizes summarizes in this report to help prevent weight related problems including both obesity and eating disorders include discouraging dieting so what is zero pediatrician supposed to be doing discouraging dieting discouraging.

"Love that absolutely i to your point even if you are injured taking a break break maybe from the physical activity just focus on taking care of yourself. Healing in of itself is a goal. If you get injured or you've had surgery i i had to couple coaching clients recently that were struck with bronchitis and the flu and they were continent heather. I'm not doing this and i'm not doing that like right. Now your job your goal. Your focus goose is not to worry about all that other stuff we were doing before it's to get better if your body is sick or broken or needs to be repaired in some way the new goal for are you is to get better once you're better you can continue back on your journey and trying to do that without doing too much self destruction in the process. That's the focus us right. I was telling my boyfriend the other day we met across but i was like if you always go hundred percent like physically. I mean like if you're always working out at some point. You're going to go to zero percent so let's just keep it at like you know for me. I'm like yell. Let's give one hundred percent every day that we workout workout but then we don't have to work out seven days a week you you can relax a day or two and i always do better when i come back from arrestee anyway so really it's because my body needed just relax firday so there's nothing wrong with taking time off to heal.

"I don't think i would have gone through all that but at the same time i don't. I don't think i would have ended up learning all the things i learned in the end anyway. I was just having this conversation with joel this morning's eating breakfast about you know it's funny. I don't think i would've of necessarily at the time i ended up making my goal weight one fifty but that wasn't because it was well i wanted it was because it was what weight watchers said said i was going to have to focus focus on to achieve a lifetime status i if i were to go back in time now and redo it knowing what i know i would have said eat in a way that you can sustain and do the fitness unless you were willing to do and wherever those two roads meet. That's what your weight. Is you know but at that time i didn't have that perspective. I had to still learn grow into it. Become more self-confident confident to you know and that's that's all part of this. We're not born with the skills and knowledge and most of us didn't grow up in a household this was taught to us so we have to find our own way as we go exactly and i think had i just listened to your podcast from the beginning because what happened was i would listen to <hes> <hes> my favorite murder and your podcast while i was at work because i used to work on a farm and so i would just be cleaning stalls or whatever and listening and my favorite murderer recommended your podcast and i think it was carrying killed gareth in she was just talking about how basically you were just always giving good advice. I uh whenever and listen to it and when i started listening to it i was at my lowest weight. I remember i was doing intermittent. Fasting that i was when i was very obsessed about you know becoming thinner and thinner and i would go run about five to seven miles every morning and i wouldn't eat until like like one o'clock and i don't. I don't know why i decided that intermittent. Fasting was a good idea for me but i feel like their social media media <unk> certain diet plans are just like this is the only way you can lose weight but at that point i had already lost all the way to lose. I just needed to learn talking about strength training and so anyway i learned about that through you and took your recommendations and stuff in just listen to other people's stories and realize is that i was just like all of these other women and that i wasn't just the only one that i don't know fell since a community and then i ended up joining join in the half seismic community that helped a lot to instill hopes a lot especially on hard days because i still have really hard days because i mean i've basically been in binge eating recovery for. I guess almost a year so that's a really good thing. I wanna talk about that because a lot of times thomas people i think sometimes falsely think that when we hit a goal weight or we achieve what we think is a good way for us that the binge eating must gone right like if somebody's in a healthier body if they're in a lower body weight..

"Not less so it's easy to share and to be super rah rah rah when everything's things going well but when you get injured or when you're mentally struggling or things are feeling out of your control. That's actually the time. That's the most beneficial for you you to lean into your community whether it's a team whether it's an online group like half size me community whether it's something that you know you're involved in some capacity. Get in there and get more more active not less active. That's so true and i just i know that a year prior to joining crossed it. I was running and dan i got back into running but it became an unhealthy thing because i ended up losing about sixty five pounds and i got obsessed to with losing weight obsessed and all i did was run my cousin cassie ver very close in i remember she was excited. Did i ran my first ever mile and she was like awesome good job in so throughout time she also cross train so she would try to like convince smith to do cross training and then just ignored her and ignored her and i just got obsessed with running while it got to where my muscles were actually certain atrophy and i lost in my opinion too much way. Although i may not of looked very very thin my hair had fallen out about half half of it and unfairly sure i had some sort of vitamin deficiency. My cycle was all off and my skin even look to really dry and i just remember feeling terrible like i lost so this way and i had been praised in praise in praise for losing all this way but then i felt terrible and i just remember i was depressed and so i couldn't be happy at the smaller way either and i was just like i don't you know what's happening. I was like i thought being smaller would make me happy and it didn't. I hear this all the time i have met people at the lowest possible body fat percentage people who are literally getting ready to go up for a bikini competition and they're completely lean. I mean there's like minimal animal of any fat. They still see things that are wrong with their body and they feel the worst at that low body fat percentage. I mean they have really bad chills. They're malnourished. They're having a hard time sleeping at night. I mean it's very very unhealthy and then wig normally happens is is of course that brings on eating disorders to come later right so this is who's gotten to that leanest end of the spectrum and all the other places in between whether you weigh one twenty-one thirty one sixty you always in your mind say they will if i just got to such and such a weight i probably would be happier. I would feel better. I would look better like we have all these conditions on that and so for you what what was the highest weight that you had gotten to and then ultimately. Where did you finally settle in it because it sounds like you went to a very unhealthy low number for for you and we're doing things that weren't stable. So where did you kind of fall in settle in after the boy that i talked about earlier. The one that we dated almost for years i was about to fifteen when he broke up with me and i remember seeing a picture of myself and i didn't recognize myself. I self at how big i was and people tell me now that i never looked that big but to me i did. I couldn't recognize my face really league and so then i start to lose the way and i ended up losing sixty five pounds so i got down to about. I remember the lowest the way i was at was one forty five which doesn't sound that small but i'm tall and five seven and a half and you know everyone does carry their wait different. That is something i like people to know because i believe in you know being on the scale and stuff and checking in with your weight for accountability but i don't i believe in a number being right on the b._m._i. And everything i think women get really obsessed with scaly and that's something i found to be really really true when i was going through the year where i lost all of that way..

"Lake. Mike our third year of day dane and i think he got very you know like into his own journey with weight loss and health and i just hadn't picked up on it yet. He actually broke up with me. I did i always feel like it had something to do with like him losing way in feeling better better and maybe not but every single time that he would go to the gym or anything like that like he asked me to go and not that it was really his job to to do that but i do think it may have gotten me started if i just had someone reach out and be like hey do you wanna go to the gym with me and he just never did that for me but i had a few friends that sometimes would and i would always say yes because i did. I did always liked to be active. I just never found my niche and college with that. Well you know it's interesting as i was listening to you. Share from the injury on what i thought to myself was because you're such a young and impressionable age that it sounds like you identified with being like an athlete because you kept saying getting back to my athletic self you had this vision of yourself and it was almost kind of like when that was disrupted because of the injury because of the comments that the students were making about you feeling like you looked different in your body. It kind of sounds like it shook that foundation of am. I may be still an athlete like because it seems like you struggled to get back into that lifestyle. Would you say that kind of what you were seeing happened at that time definitely so if i could have sent you back to that point when you got injured you're still when this happened to you when i see this happen with thirty thirty forty and fifty year olds where they they identify as a runner they identify as you know somebody who does a specific sport or athletic ability ability and when they get injured and that's taken away from them for a while a lot of times it comes in really with negative eating behaviors. It's kind of that thought process of. I'm kind of feeling depressed about this. I can't go out from my runs. Will what difference does it make what i do with food. I my identity is somewhat lost right now right. If you could've gone back to that point in your history what would you maybe have encouraged yourself to do differently or the parents that were supervising you like what what do you think would have been helpful. I think i would have been really really helpful looking back if my soccer coach had maybe not that like he had so so much time to do this but if just any of my coaches had reached out and been like hey come to the games and you can do this job and help code because i was the age right could start to learn those kind of skills anyway in you know been in charge may be of even just like helping them out disperse water or whatever for my team because i think i just needed to be part of that community not necessarily running with them and everything but just being with them 'cause i remember like feeling left out but it wasn't like a i wasn't allowed to go or anything just would have been nice if they had reached out and then my parents may be if they had brought me to the game sinoe just been like hey come on but my mom my entire life worked a lot. I see the but she also taught for l._s._u. And so she was very busy but you know it could have been something that my dad sadder somebody could have brought into the games sure so what i think i heard there is you would have wanted to lean more into supporting community because it sounds like you were detached from that. I heard something else in there that you wanted to take some kind of action and for those of you listening. Let's just say you're fifty and you're an avid runner are when you get injured and you can't be running. You can't play soccer like emily was in that same situation where you can't do the thing that you love..

"Like i had more issues with it and there was some attempts at dieting and like middle and high school school and so you made some attempts at dieting puberty hit and then at that point how d- recall your thoughts changing or your awareness of your body body changing well i remember when i was twelve we went to the doctor and i stood on the scale with my mom watching adding and i was one hundred and sixty pounds. I was a little bit chubby. I do remember being. I think it was a size six like adult but i i think it was i had just listened to one year podcasts about how like the moms will freak out often in. It's like the age where sorry you're kinda growing out and then you're going to grow taller. I just hadn't gotten taller yet so i was about one hundred and sixty pounds. I remember my mom being concerned earned and the doctor being concerned and then trying to educate me on what i need to be eating and then i remember i ended growing like shooting up really tall paul and i actually looked slender again and was probably the same weight about a year later. This message is one that i've been recently doing some more researching researching <hes> just about childhood weight and the stigma and all that and there's a great research out of australia and she was sharing this idea that <hes> we penalize kids because they don't grow equally at the same time meaning their body weight may adjust should do to puberty and hormone changes but the hormone that triggers height to happen might not be at the same time as the weight and the fat accumulation and so because they don't happen simultaneously at the exact same moment you might seem like you said on the chubbier side heavier for your height but then over the course of that year of your hi shoots up and it all balances out so if you could go back to that moment in time with the knowledge you have now the perspective you've now and you could have entered that room as an adult and joined in that conversation with your mom in your doctor what would you maybe have said or instructed them based on your knowledge which i think i would have instructed them to not say anything in. Maybe just be like you're gonna grow taller and because i remember when i knew the number i wasn't ashamed by it but they felt something wrong with it. So then it became a realization. I have all my gosh. I'm big so i would probably just have told them to say yeah. You're probably near growth spurt because i wasn't really struggling with body image issues at that moment moment until then lease parents. Please hear what she is saying. I mean show after show show after show until the kid. This is brought to their attention. It's not a big deal and for most kids if they just eat normally they stay active it will adjust and and i'm not saying don't listen listen to the doctor but maybe have these conversations outside of the earshot of the kids and kind of think about this from a perspective of the longevity of their weight because because if more of us did this i mean if we talk to our doctors and pediatricians about this away from the kids. They wouldn't be carrying the burden on their shoulders of oh. There's something wrong with my body all right so after that you shot up in height you basically leaned back out again and then at this point where you about to go into college college finishing up high school. Where were you at. I was in high school and i remember i was a avid soccer player so i tore my a._c._l. In the tenth grade and i was sixteen i was probably the leanest i'd ever been my rode horses every single day competitively in then also played soccer soccer every single day so it was very active so when i tore my a._c._l..

I see a frenzy of scared nece a concern about what am I going to do. I'm going on big Asian Heather. There's a cruise. There's a buffet there. There's going to be all these unexpected eating events. What do I do in? How do I manage myself through my travels to where I don't gain a bunch of weight? I don't backslide. I don't come home in forget everything and go back to my old ways. And how do I enjoy myself in this newfound healthy eating world that I'm in now and so we're going to really work tonight in helping you transform your travels before we get started.

You've got hundreds as of hours of podcasts that you can go through and the reason that we started this was so I could help people start to change their thinking about how to lose this weight in a permanent and maintainable way. I myself have struggled Gould with my weight since I was a kid early. Start here for me around probably about second grade I started to continuously put on weight really started struggling even with binge eating. When I was eight years of age? I was really kind of in a bad position position in high school. I was well over two hundred pounds really struggling. So of course what did I do when on a crash diet lost a bunch of weight went to college gained it all back plus ninety more pounds.

"Cly it was. It was nothing. Nothing wild or crazy is very basic compliment. Very little 'isolation work is neat, bicep curls or squads. You're done the very basic stuff and I, I'm still doing that stuff today. I haven't done anything crazy. I just very, very simple. I think the big fish changed from now from the until now is that I, I have a son now, so I don't have our day to go lift weights and workout. I basically get a half hour on my lunch, break forties a week. I make it work. And that's one of the questions I get first off. Do I have to spend hours and hours and hours in the gym, and you're saying basically four times a week for thirty minutes. And honestly, if you. Had the equipment at home. I'm assuming you could do most of the stuff at home. Correct. That fluently. Okay. And so you're, you're making it work with four thirty minute sessions. You're doing the protein, and then where do you want to see this? Go for yourself? Where do you see yourself moving in the future with all this and actually working on improving my strength right now, I focusing on one exercise in particular, not just kind of what I'm doing just to add some challenge or some fun. I where I wanna be as far as my body weight and by my side, but I'm just working on improving my strength. So sounds like you're wanting to see strength gains and things of that nature, which which brings me to the question of tracking. Oftentimes people are so hesitant to track. They don't know if they want to track calories. They feel like that might be something that's hard to maintain, but when we're talking about setting new goals for selves, right? Whether it's it's running a marathon, whether string training. Do you find that tracking that information is valuable for you as far as seeing your progress? Oh, absolutely. I use a fitness tracker that will actually track my workouts for me..

She needed to begin to double her protein and start lifting weights to get to her goal. Wait and see her body composition change. She also shares how she had to give yourself permission to be happy with her weight and knock continue to pursue more weight loss. That's a hard one for so many of us, and she shares how her mindset has changed about the process of losing weight and keeping it off by being kinder to herself. Elissa is really crushing it because she is really good at collecting data. She actually did a post in the community forums which I've tagged many people on. I even shared it in one of our webinars about how she found her. CD e what process? She went through, how she stayed on on point for him was more than six weeks collected some really great data, put it all together almost in a scientific way which of course I loved. I love it when people spreadsheets together collect data and they're like actually very logical and analytical about it. So I, I love that about Eliza. She brings some wonderful things to the community, including some awesome protein recipe. She's been sharing some of her yummy protein recipes in there right alongside myself and other members that are sharing. So we would absolutely love to have you join us. We're going to be opening our doors on October. The second we stay open for about twenty four hours. If you would like to join us, you can just get on the waiting list and I just want to let you know in the month of October in the forms, we're going to be doing a challenge thirty days to better habits. We're going to actually be talking about how to build habits in how to identify keystone behaviors to attach them to. To how to know if they're actually being successfully executed, what steps to take after that mine challenges, they're kind of like courses. We're, I'm constantly trying to teach and educate and help everybody tweak. So the back to basics, what ended up happening is a lot of learning happened in their people are like, oh, I thought my basics were this, and I realized I wasn't hitting it and we had to refocus session. So when I really wanna do is educate, I wanna help and educate. So when I do these challenges, I put a lot of thought into them. And I think if I was doing some kind of a college course or long distance course, how would I structure it? And so usually there's an educational part in a video series. We then check in each day, people share what they're learning and how they're modifying. I love that. That is what I'm all about. And I saw so much good learning happening in the thirty days of why. Now this thirty days back to basics, and I'm super excited about her upcoming one which is going to be thirty days to better habits. So if you know you need help with these things. That's what we're in there doing. We're helping each other members or helping other members. It's awesome. All you have to do is go to house is.
