Episode Highlights:

(06:55) [Marchelle] Kids want to be accepted and to keep up with the popular kids. That's how this all got started. I became really depressed, especially after my friend died..and I didn't know how to get away from it… those bad habits carried on into my young adulthood, and my mental health suffered a lot. I felt like I wasn't worth very much and the people didn't like me if I wasn't skinny. I don't know why that meant so much, but it did.

(11:21) I do think that most people who struggle with obesity feel very alone in their struggle. We all know other people who are trying to lose weight, but we don't really have any idea of how alone other people feel in their journey, how hard this is, and how disabling it is...everything about this disease is hard.

(19:42) There is help out there. It is crucial. I believe in seeking support from a healthcare professional. I encourage everyone to find an Obesity Medicine doctor and maybe even a therapist. I also wanted to remind all of our listeners that we have so much help and guidance for you in the Empowered Weight Loss Membership, this is Dr. Angela's program. She teaches you everything you need to know about weight loss and how to keep it off. There is a community and you get to be around other people so you don't feel so alone and you can bounce ideas off of each other. You can even get an accountability buddy, which I think is so important… because isolation is what keeps you in the dark.
