    How to Start Speaking the Language of Self-Love

    How to Start Speaking the Language of Self-Love

    Are you familiar with the five love languages?
    The five love languages describe the five core ways that people receive and express love in a relationship.
    I’ve learned a lot about myself and about how to be a better partner by deepening my understanding of the five love languages, as well as openly and consistently communicating about them.
    But here’s the most important piece I’ve learned from studying this topic: we often don’t apply the principles to the most important relationship in our life…
    The one we have with ourselves.
    The most important relationship in your life is the one you have with yourself.
    It sets the tone not only in your romantic relationship, but in your relationship with your body, food, exercise, and also greatly influences how you interact with others.
    In today’s episode, I’ll introduce the five love languages in greater detail, before ultimately helping you to shift how you view them through the lens of applying (and constantly practicing) them to the relationship you have with yourself so that you can feel, look, and be your best!

    Be Your Own Best Friend and Break the Binge-Eating Cycle for Good with Azul Corajoria

    “I learned that I needed to be my own best friend."
    This theme and commitment helped bring Azul out of a vicious binge-eating cycle that was robbing her of confidence, joy, and love in many aspects of her life and into a relationship with food and herself that can now be described as loving and confident - and one that she has full control over.

She teaches people how to move well, eat well and live their healthiest lives with simple science-based workouts that build strength and confidence alongside easy and sustainable nutrition and lifestyle changes - no guilt-tripping, no counting, and no dieting.

    You’ll discover the foundational coaching elements she used with herself - and now her clients - to rebuild her relationship with food and herself and to make binges a thing of the past.

    Episode Highlights and Quotes:
    Learn how Azul brought herself out of a vicious binge-eating cycle and into a stable, healthy, and sustainable relationship with food and how she coaches women to improve their relationship with food, fitness, and themselves (without guilt-tripping or dieting).

    “I learned that I needed to be my own best friend.”
    “I didn't necessarily put in the work to understand who I was. What I mean by that is that everything that I did or every compliment that I would get, or growing up, everything that was emphasized was always based on how I looked. I just started to believe that that was all ... that was important about me. But when you take a step back and you start to do that self work and you start to realize, "Okay, who am I?" It's like, I'm a good daughter, I'm a good friend, I'm a good sister, I'm funny. These are my interests, these are the things that I like to do.”
    “...this feeling of control, because that's ultimately why we calorie count, is we think we have control. But when you think about it, that's actually food having control over you. You no longer actually have control when you're doing something like calorie counting all the time and getting all these anxious emotions from it.”

    “I like to think of eating well and moving well as, these are lifelong things. They're not a six-week program, they're not a 12-week program, they're not a year. These are things that you should be doing literally for the rest of your life. If you don't like it, you're not going to do it. It's not going to be sustainable.” How I Can Help You:
    I help women over 30 lose weight and rebuild limitless confidence so that they never have to diet again.

    The Power of Keeping Promises to Yourself with Allison Sellner

    The Power of Keeping Promises to Yourself with Allison Sellner

    Meet Allison.
    An OBGYN in the Houston, Texas area who has been dieting for nearly two decades. 
    Having started her first diet around the age of 12 at the recommendation of her Mother, Allison developed a collection of habits and a relationship with food that drained her mentally, emotionally, and physically. 
    Despite knowing what to do, Allison continued to get in her own way. She’d start and stop various diets only to end up back where she started. 
    During her residency, she experienced an infertility diagnosis, two rounds of IVF treatment, and a miscarriage - as if the stress of residency wasn’t enough. Inevitably, something had to give…
    That something was Allison prioritizing herself and her own self-care, which led to her weight, frustration, and unhappiness being at an all-time high shortly before she joined The 5% Community.
    Listen in to hear how dramatically Allison’s life has changed (inside and out!) since she joined The 5% Community in mid-2022. She’s not only lost nearly 20 pounds and countless inches, but has recaptured a newfound level of self-confidence, self-belief, and consistency in her life.

    Join The 5% Community.
    Episode Key Highlights:
    “When I joined The 5% Community, my weight was at an absolute all-time high. And I was just at a place of desperation and honestly, kind of hopelessness and feeling like I needed something to work. I, like so many women who joined the program, have been dieting, honestly, as sad as it sounds, probably since the age of 12 or 13.”

    “So it was definitely bleeding into just my overall confidence in myself in general. I think that manifested in kind of confidence within my marriage, confidence that I was being the doctor that I needed to be, as well as just my relationships with friends and family, because it was just an ongoing preoccupation that I had with food. And I joke that labor and delivery in the hospital is just a landmine of temptation and triggering foods in abundance.

    But it's so true. And I meant to look up the statistics. I know it's like 50% of nurses are overweight and obese, but I think it's like a quarter to a third of doctors are also overweight in obese.” “Yeah, I mean I think that's really the key. Like you said at the beginning of the podcast, this is simple, but it's not easy. And I feel like I really kind of dove in into building all of those foundational habits, which I think is the hardest part. It takes a lot of consistency and habit formation, but then I have been kind of amazed at once you put those in place, how simple it is after that.

    And also learn some of Allison’s best Houston restaurant recommendations! Key questions asked to Allison include:
    Tell me about the woman you were just prior to joining The 5% Community: What was your biggest problem or frustration prior to joining?

    How did your inability to solve this problem show up in other areas of your life, such as your romantic relationship, parenting, work, relationship with friends and family, etc.?

    Something that stood out to me was your recognition that when you successfully completed an early morning workout, it set the tone for your day and week. Tell us more about this. One of your fears in our time together was navigating social occasions - you and your husband both work demanding jobs and like to unwind by trying new restaurants on the weekends…What has changed in your mindset and approach to enable you to navigate these situations with grace and ease? How is your life different since joining The 5% Community and what are some of the internal results and changes you’ve experienced? How I Can Help You:

    7 Things You Can Do Differently this Year to FINALLY Keep the Weight Off FOR GOOD

    “You can’t change unless you change.” 
    Yet, too often we’re all guilty of desiring to change an aspect of our life but never following through on the changes that need to be made to create that change we desire.
    If significant, sustainable weight loss has been a primary motivator for countless years, yet, you’re not any closer to that goal being a reality, this episode is for you.
    It’s time to change.
    In today’s episode, I’ll detail seven changes that you can make to accelerate your journey to never having to diet again. 
    Most of these changes - if not all of them - will evoke an immediate sense of discomfort, overwhelm, or anxiety.
    This is normal.
    This is the feeling of being alive. This is the feeling associated with contemplating movement just beyond your comfort zone, which is where transformation occurs.

    If you resonate with any aspect of the story I share in today’s episode, know that you’re in the right place.

    Introducing Screw the Scale Radio

    Introducing Screw the Scale Radio

    I’m going back to where it all started…
    In 2018, I took the leap of faith (thanks to a lot of support from my friend, Whitney!) to start a podcast, which became known as The Screw the Scale Podcast.
    In 2021, I brought on a co-host and tried a new approach, ultimately renaming the show: The 5% Way Podcast. 
    That chapter of my podcast was a lot of fun and taught me a tremendous amount, but as I resume the role of solo host, I am excited to make a return to my roots and bring to you a podcast that encapsulates all I’ve learned the past four years and 222 episodes!
    Screw the Scale Radio. 
    If you’ve been losing and regaining the same 20+ pounds and struggling to have a positive relationship with food, and a loving relationship with yourself, you’re in the right place. 
    This is THE podcast to listen to so that you can learn how to get out of your own way, keep the weight off for good, and feel and loo your best!
    Take a quick listen to learn more about the upgrades I’ll be making to the show and discover what you can expect as we venture into chapter three of this podcast journey together. 
    And in episode 223, which will be published 24 hours after this episode, you’ll learn EXACTLY who Screw the Scale Radio is for and how it will help empower you with the belief and action steps you need to not only lose the weight you desire and keep it off for good, but create the level of confidence, self-love, and certainty you crave.
