This is the longest I have remained the same weight in the last 15 years and that feels pretty amazing. My level of confidence when I walk into auditions is at a whole new level. And I'm confident that with the skills I have learned, and the habits I've developed, I'll be able to stay at this weight for good.
Results ARE typical and to be expected with MyBodyTutor. See why at the end of this page.
If Jaimie can do it with MyBodyTutor, why can’t you?
Most, if not all of us can relate to Jaimie. Her relationship with food was not serving her in a healthy manner. Body image issues along with eating for “any reason” – good and bad had became Jaimie’s way of life.
Too often clients like Jaimie let their ego get in the way and would rather “jog in place” than get some help. These are the people who lose and gain back the same weight over and over again.
Jaimie was very knowledgeable regarding diet and exercise, therefore she knew with imposed self discipline she could just “force” the weight off without any outside help.
Except, herein lies the real problem – if she truly could have been successful without help than why wasn’t she?
The Action Plan
It was evident that Jaimie needed the support and accountability of MyBodyTutor in order to meet her diet and exercise goals.
We did not “force” Jaimie to “be good ” or give up her favorite foods. Our mission was to be her partner in weight loss, not be the food police. A partner who provided Jaimie with healthy food choices and strategies to maneuver around any unforeseen obstacles.
Jaimie had tremendous success because she changed her relationship with food. She did not just “stick to a diet” through sheer willpower.
She changed her habits, and habits trump willpower every time.
Why it Worked (in her words)
For the better part of my adult life, I have been a major over-eater. I was a very athletic kid and we ate healthy foods in my home so I didn’t see the effects of my crazy lack of portion control until I was an adult and my metabolism slowed down. Throughout college my weight spiked up and down very quickly. I developed major body image issues and a very negative relationship with food. I have used every excuse in the book to justify eating whatever I wanted; good days to celebrate/bad days to comfort. I frequently consumed so much food that I would be physically in pain which would lead to feelings of upset and disappointed with my lack of control.
I don’t normally have trouble admitting I need help but for some reason I really struggled to do this on my own. Adam’s emails implying that if I could do it on my own I already would have were obviously accurate but they annoyed the hell out of me. I knew a lot about diet and exercise and was determined to force it to work one of these days. As an actress, my image is always part of the discussion. I embraced denial until I was called in for “Chubby Girl” on a popular television show and that I couldn’t ignore. I did lose 10 pounds on my own and then quickly swung back to binge eating and gained half of it back in a few days so I finally decided to give MBT a shot.
I was very motivated for the first month and found it very easy to follow the plan “perfectly”. The second month I found those compulsions sneaking back in every now and then and when I gave in to them I would have the urge to quit. One of the hardest lessons I’ve learned working with Adam is that “perfection” is not the goal. I tend to bounce back and forth between extremes and finding that balance was difficult.
On a deeper level I knew that there would be a light at the end of the tunnel. I knew that lying on my daily reports was a waste of time and money and quitting would certainly lead nowhere. It was tough but I made myself stick it out and eventually uncovered the emotional triggers that lead me to lose control!
Having to track not only my meals but how much sleep I was getting and really facing how much stress I would put my mind through with my insane work schedule uncovered patterns as well. I have since made some major changes in how much I will let myself schedule into a week. I’m putting my health and peace of mind first and it’s making a huge difference in my ability to exercise self-control.
After working with MBT, I did reach my weight goal; not because of crazy restrictions or 5-hour workouts, but because I learned how to consistently eat healthfully. I learned that going off the rails is fleeting. I learned that I really do feel best when I make time for myself. I have created new habits with food. (I also completed a marathon – something I’ve been meaning to do for the last 10 years.)
This is the longest I have remained the same weight in the last 15 years and that feels pretty amazing. My level of confidence when I walk into auditions is at a whole new level. And I’m confident that with the skills I have learned, and the habits I’ve developed, I’ll be able to stay at this weight for good. That is priceless. I couldn’t have done this without MBT, otherwise I would have! 🙂 I can’t recommend this program enough. It’s changed my life. Thank you!!!

What did you say to yourself as you were reading Jaimie’s story?
It’s fascinating when we start to notice our own behavior. Typically, we distance ourselves from that person. We find something they have that we don’t. We make them into something other than an ordinary, regular person. Then, we create an excuse for why we can’t achieve the same level of success.
The most important thing to realize: Whatever anyone else has done or become, you can do or become as well, with the right support, guidance and accountability.
Here’s the best part: I guarantee it or your money back. I sincerely believe in what we offer that much. I know MBT will be the last program you ever do or need.
