Fitbloggin' session description

This is the session description for the small-group discussion that Margo and I will be leading at this year's Fitbloggin' conference:

Getting Back from Gaining Back

Did you reach your goal weight only to regain as you fell back into old habits? Do you feel sad and ashamed when you remember how you swore that you would "never again" be overweight?

We believe that healthy weight loss begins from a place of self-compassion. It's great to try to develop healthier habits and work toward your goals. We just don't think self-punishment is going to get you there.

Think about it -- even if you could hate yourself skinny, would you really want to?

We’ll talk about:

  • Developing healthy habits that are sustainable and rewarding
  • Finding ways to ditch shame and find compassion for yourself
  • Asking for the support you need from friends and family
  • Using technology to help you in your "weight loss project"
  • Dealing with body image confusion after a big loss or a big gain
  • Living your life with confidence and style, no matter what you weigh

Presented by Margo @shesnachomama and Jen @toledolefty


  1. cool! I'm sure it will be a great session. Hope you feel better today.

  2. Can't wait! I've gained a little (15ish pounds) and am so fearful of not being able to stop the weight gain train. Right now I'm just trying to maintain until I can gain some steam to do what I know I need to do.
