129. What Should I Do When…(Weight Loss Edition)?

Raise your hand if you’ve ever taken to social media to get advice and it felt like the floodgates opened and you were inundated with responses.

Go on, raise your hand, I’m raising mine too. I think we’ve all been there.

Asking questions on social media can be a bit of a double edged sword, though.

Sure you might get some legitimate advice from people who know what they’re talking about, but you’re also going to get a lot of advice from less than qualified (albeit well-meaning) people.

I see questions about weight loss so often and although we want there to be black-and-white answer, the truth is, it depends.

In today’s episode of The Live Diet-Free Podcast, I’m giving you four questions to ask yourself to make decisions for yourself based on your individual circumstances and not the loud opinions of people on the internet.

125. What to Do When You Start Gaining Weight Back

Have you lost weight in the past only to start gaining weight back once you let your foot off the gas a little?

Like so many of the women I’ve talked to about this very thing, you’re probably convinced that you’ll never be able to lose that weight in a sustainable way.

You’ve told yourself that in order to stay at your goal weight, you’ll have to live life in a constant state of restriction and maintenance is for other people, but not for you.

That something inside of you must be broken, because everyone else seems to lose the weight and keep it off without the struggle you’re having.

Sound familiar?

You’re absolutely not alone in believing that, but I want to assure you that there’s nothing wrong with you.

This episode of The Live Diet-Free Podcast address all of this and more.
