Marc works with 30-year-old Kiersten who would like to let go of the fear and shame she feels around her weight, and feel more confident in her own skin. After being diagnosed with hypothyroidism in high school, Kiersten was placed on thyroid supplementation that helped her lose about 60 pounds – but since then, it’s been an up and down roller coaster.
She’s experienced times where she was able to lose weight, trying things like a keto diet, working with a weight loss coach, and being on a strict exercise regimen. But after experiencing some personal hardships a few years ago, she gained all her weight back. Now the heaviest she’s ever been with about 100 pounds she’d like to lose, Kiersten is wondering where to go from here. Equally, she’s trying to figure out how she can quiet the voice of self-criticism, and see herself and her journey in a kind and loving way – something more important than ever to Kiersten as she seeks to heal the abuse she experienced as a child.
Tune into this powerful and potent episode, where we take a special look at the role of childhood abuse and abandonment, and how that shows up in how we speak to ourselves as adults – regardless of our body’s shape or size.
