Everything will not be fine after Weight Loss featuring Remi Owadokun
Episode SummaryHow many times have we assumed that by simply putting in effort to lose weight, that we would automatically have the brightest, 'awesomest' life. On this episode, Remi shares with us that merely cutting calories and exercising is truly not the 'snake oil' for all our problems.On this episode, Dr Ezinne and Remi explore the various reasons why most women struggle with weight loss and also the depression that follows almost immediately especially when you make short term weight loss goals.

I just felt I was chubby and big boned, I never thought I was overweight or obese- I didn't have anything to aspire to, I didn't have anything to keep me going, I was not even excited that I could wear clothes because that was never the reason for losing weight in the first place so I got into depression- I got addicted to food. If I was happy i’d eat, if was sad i’d eat, so food became my pacifier, my Jesus, my satan, my everything- The thing about responding to life with food is that even when you have nothing to respond to, you've already created a habit of eating anyways- I don't want to leave my children early because I decided to be careless, because I want to “enjoy life”. I want to be old grey and healthy. - The last thing I want is to be is old and sick & inconveniencing my children and grandchildren.------------Grab Dr. Ezinne’s FREE TRAINING on ‘How to Lose Weight and Never Gain it Back’ at bit.ly/beyondweightloss so you too can finally finally get rid of the weight loss lifestyle, LOSE WEIGHT and NEVER GAIN IT BACK and live fabulously every waking day. ---------Schedule a consultation session with Dr. Ezinne so she can help you walk through your body struggles and rewrite your body story today - https://calendly.com/zinnyslifestyle/coachingsession If you have questions about booking Dr. Ezinne, sponsoring this podcast, guest suggestions or questions you’d like answered on the podcast; email us at admin@beyondadresssize.comTo Subscribe to Beyond A Dress Size Podcast on:- iTunes- Stitcher- Spotify- Anchor- Google Podcasts - Castbox Simply head to anchor.fm/beyondadresssize choose your favourite platform and subscribe.

You don't need a Perfect Body for the Holidays featuring Chichi Eruchalu
Episode Summary Tis that time of the year again when all the marketing and advertising is focused on reminding women especially that they need to fix their bodies to have a great time. I know we've all been impacted one way or the other. We plugged in this episode to help you work through the holiday season plus all that new year 'weight loss' resolution that the holiday anxiety gets you into but you never stick with. We are still on the recovery and empowerment through nutrition series but we want to make sure we are truly meeting your needs.We know right, it can really be frustrating to have a closet full of beautiful clothes that you cannot wear because they are not your size and you are unwilling to part with them.This episode will get you digging deep and asking yourself the hard but relevant questions.Lastly and should we say, most importantly, how to respond to negative comments and body bashing over the holidays. About our guestChichi Eruchalu is a Business Strategist, Speaker, Author and Coach who is passionate about bringing your business to life, through creative strategy and purpose-driven action in order to help you come out of hiding, make an impact and leave a lasting legacy.

I have to go to specialists shops. So I have always hated that fact and not enjoyed my feet but I’m grateful now for my feet. I’m walking and it takes me places.- I buy things that work for me so my wardrobe may look same but full of clothes that I CAN wear other than “I can't wear this or that” “ I can't wear this, it shows that” and you go through the wardrobe. It looks full but full of things I cannot wear.- Accept where you are. Just because you didn't lose weight doesn’t mean you should not dress well. Dress for your shape right now, buy things that work for you.- What you feel about your body today is not necessarily what comes from inside of you. It’s not your own feeling, it is something that has been said to you over time.

Do Not Confound Religion with Responsibility featuring Rayo Abe
Episode SummaryHow many times have we seen someone or maybe it was even you who was given a diagnosis (of course, make no mistake it's important to verify your diagnosis) but then what happens after this diagnosis is obvious and confirmed. Do you take responsibility and work with your doctor as you do your own research or do you ignore your doctor's recommendations and continue to live life like nothing has changed - AKA take responsibility for your health. After Rayo was diagnosed of being diabetic, she went home and decided in the characteristic 'Christianese' way that it was not her portion. So she continued to live like nothing had changed. It took a coma, one that she may not have made it out from to awaken her and make her realise that she had to choose between taking responsibility and using her religion as a crutch. Today, Rayo is alive and well because she had a second chance to make that choice. What about you? Are you taking responsibility? We hope this episode inspires you to take responsibility for your health and teach everyone around you to do same. About our guestRayo Abe is a Professional Housewife and the face of the LagosHouseWife brand. A graduate of English Language from the University of Ilorin, she made the choice to be a Stay at Home Mum even before marriage.Based on her experience as a Stay at Home Mum, LagosHouseWife was founded from her passion to help women be financially independent while at the same time run and manage their homes and families, with a special bias for healthy, balanced homemade meals (she looooves cooking) and she has teachings to help women with the required knowledge to balance their home lives and businesses. You can find her on Facebook and Instagram as @lagoshousewifeWebsite: lagoshousewife.com/Our Favourite highlights: - This body is my physical vehicle on earth, I can’t change it for another one. - I have only one shot. Once this body is gone, my purpose is gone. - We need to share our testimonies more to help people and we need to be honest. Being honest about how medicine helped you is not denying God’s Grace. - I am living with diabetes. I am watching what I eat, I test my blood sugar and I am responsible. When I do what I can do, God does what I can’t do. ------------------Be sure to share on your social media pages, tag your friends, invite them to start listening and start a conversation with the hashtag #beyondadresssize and tag us too @beyondadresssize.-----------Grab Dr. Ezinne’s FREE TRAINING on ‘How to Lose Weight and Never Gain it Back’ at bit.ly/beyondweightloss so you too can finally finally get rid of the weight loss lifestyle, LOSE WEIGHT and NEVER GAIN IT BACK and live fabulously every waking day. ---------Schedule a consultation session with Dr. Ezinne so she can help you walk through your body struggles and rewrite your body story today - https://calendly.com/zinnyslifestyle/coachingsession If you have questions about booking Dr. Ezinne, sponsoring this podcast, guest suggestions or questions you’d like answered on the podcast; email us at admin@beyondadresssize.comTo Subscribe to Beyond A Dress Size Podcast on:- iTunes- Stitcher- Spotify- Anchor- Google Podcasts - Castbox Simply head to anchor.fm/beyondadresssize choose your favourite platform and subscribe.

Oby Bamidele: Self Acceptance is not Living in Denial
Episode SummaryCan I really love & accept my body and still take better care of it? Isn't it better to 'change' and 'fix' my body first before loving my body? Loving my body right now is like settling and I don't want to settle. This is a common rhetoric that plays in the heads of many women and I have heard it over and over again from the women I coach. On this episode, Oby shares how self acceptance was fundamental in her journey through recovering from an eating disorder, letting go of the hatred and loathing she carried for herself and becoming a counsellor today teaching women to love themselves - warts and all. About our guestOby Bamidele is a mind-set coach, registered therapist in private practice, writer and speaker. She’s also a Christian, wife, mum and youth leaderWhat's her thing? Helping people break out of their rut of conformist beliefs and inauthentic living, so they can find their unique purpose, live freely and happily She is big on sharing her story and encourages women to own and embrace theirs (warts and all) to find peace, healing and courage to be “unapologetically You” She has authored two books- "Finding Purpose" and Me, My Hair and the Rest. You can purchase her books on amazon.You can connect with her on Facebook and Instagram as @obybamideleWebsite: www.obybamidele.comOur Favourite Highlights- The more I’ve reached self acceptance, the more open I am with sharing my good and also my bad. People learn not just from the good.- I had to reach a place where I could really love myself and look at myself in the mirror and say “you are OK, you are good, you are enough, despite the fact I’m a work in progress, I’m good and I love me as a work in progress”.- When you build up that idea that your life is perfect, it becomes so difficult to show any other side - even to yourself.- The catalyst for change is self acceptance. When you love yourself then change can take place------------------Be sure to share on your social media pages, tag your friends, invite them to start listening and start a conversation with the hashtag #beyondadresssize and tag us too @beyondadresssize.-----------Grab Dr. Ezinne’s FREE TRAINING on ‘How to Lose Weight and Never Gain it Back’ at bit.ly/beyondweightloss so you too can finally finally get rid of the weight loss lifestyle, LOSE WEIGHT and NEVER GAIN IT BACK and live fabulously every waking day. ---------Schedule a consultation session with Dr. Ezinne so she can help you walk through your body struggles and rewrite your body story today - https://calendly.com/zinnyslifestyle/coachingsession If you have questions about booking Dr. Ezinne, sponsoring this podcast, guest suggestions or questions you’d like answered on the podcast; email us at admin@beyondadresssize.comTo Subscribe to Beyond A Dress Size Podcast on:- iTunes- Stitcher- Spotify- Anchor- Google Podcasts - Castbox Simply head to anchor.fm/beyondadresssize choose your favourite platform and subscribe.

Ekene Onu: Unpacking The Weight and Taking Your Life Back
Episode SummaryEkene Onu who at some point was over 300 pounds before she started her journey with Refresh at Refreshwithekene will tell you categorically that when a woman starts to put on a significant amount of weight, it is to pad herself to push away the world and become invisible - there is something deeper she is trying to cover to hide her vulnerable parts. . . Unfortunately she does this almost always with food. We also talk about how pedophiles thrive & continue to operate even in our homes; these pedophiles are daddy's friends and mummy’s friends and by the time a girl has been violated over & over whether emotionally or physically, she gradually learns - sadly so - that her body must be the problem and its either she chooses to punish this body, hide it or just treat it with disdain and neglect. About our guestEkene Onu defines reinvention. Several years ago she went through her own revolution, left a career in healthcare as a pharmacist and went back to study organizational & change leadership at Georgetown University. She also is certified in emotional intelligence from ISEI and trained in appreciative inquiry and leadership development. She is a gifted spiritual teacher and has authored 5 books. Including the novel “The Mrs Club” and “Aristocrat wives”.

She has spoken and delivered trainings around the world from the US to South Africa. A 2016 United Nations Women Empower women Global Champion, she is deeply passionate about helping women develop and become the powerhouses they were born to be.You can connect with her on Facebook and Instagram as @refreshwithekeneWebsite: http://refreshwithekene.com/Our Favourite Highlights- I packed on weight as a way to hide and be invisible, overtime it became my coping mechanism for something I never really addressed. Today I Realize that when I don't feel psychologically or spiritually safe, that becomes the manner.- When you start eating food in a way that is not supposed to, something else is going on. Nothing should have control over you and if there is compulsion, it's a sign of addiction. You are consciously no longer in control. - Your healthiest weight is when you are in control of what goes into your body. It’s not about what you eat.- If you put your self worth in your physical self, you will have a hard time living fully. As you begin to age, your body will change and age - embrace it.-----------Grab Dr. Ezinne’s FREE TRAINING on ‘How to Lose Weight and Never Gain it Back’ at bit.ly/beyondweightloss so you too can finally finally get rid of the weight loss lifestyle, LOSE WEIGHT and NEVER GAIN IT BACK and live fabulously every waking day. ---------If you have questions about booking Dr. Ezinne, sponsoring this podcast, guest suggestions or questions you’d like answered on the podcast; email us at admin@beyondadresssize.comTo Subscribe to Beyond A Dress Size Podcast on:- iTunes- Stitcher- Spotify- Anchor- Google Podcasts - Castbox Simply head to anchor.fm/beyondadresssize choose your favourite platform and subscribe.

Ending Body Shaming Starts With You with Angela Ukomadu
Episode SummaryOn today’s episode with Angela Ukomadu, we talk about her experience working with Zinnyslifestyle and her previous experience at a gym where she was spending 3 hours daily and of course gaining more weight. We also touch a topic very dear to my heart; body shaming and how we use social media as a tool to pull other women down. The truth is what we say about other women's bodies is a reflection of how we feel about our own bodies and you never know what a woman is going through and how we are adding heaps of coal to the ongoing situation. About our guestAngela Ukomadu currently oversees the Reuters TV operations in Nigeria. Angela holds a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management from the Abia State University and a post graduate diploma in Education. She also holds a Certificate in Digital Journalism from the City University of New York, Post-Graduate School of Journalism and just recently became a Kiplinger Fellow.Our favourite highlights- You don’t need to spend 3 hours at the gym to be healthy or lose weight, doing so can very quickly culminate in frustration.- Addiction, substance abuse and suicide attempts in adults has been linked to body shaming in both boys and girls during adolescence. - When body shaming persists getting dressed for many people can become such a chore that if it deteriorate can lead to panic attacks and other forms of anxiety disorders.- Celebrities and the people you see on social media are not just images, there are real people with feelings behind that account, we need to stop attacking each others’ bodies. ------------------Be sure to share on your social media pages, tag your friends, invite them to start listening and start a conversation with the hashtag #beyondadresssize and tag us too @beyondadresssize.-----------Grab Dr. Ezinne’s FREE TRAINING on ‘How to Lose Weight and Never Gain it Back’ at bit.ly/beyondweightloss so you too can finally finally get rid of the weight loss lifestyle, LOSE WEIGHT and NEVER GAIN IT BACK and live fabulously every waking day. ---------Schedule a consultation session with Dr. Ezinne so she can help you walk through your body struggles and rewrite your body story today - https://calendly.com/zinnyslifestyle/coachingsession If you have questions about booking Dr. Ezinne, sponsoring this podcast, guest suggestions or questions you’d like answered on the podcast; email us at admin@beyondadresssize.comTo Subscribe to Beyond A Dress Size Podcast on:- iTunes- Stitcher- Spotify- Anchor- Google Podcasts - Castbox Simply head to anchor.fm/beyondadresssize choose your favourite platform and subscribe.
