Ep. 67 – Do You Use Others As An EXCUSE to NOT Lose Weight?

We all make excuses.

It's human nature to find the reasons why we can't lose weight more than the reasons why we CAN lose weight.

Nothing is wrong with you when you use excuses. But excuses don't HELP you either.

Today's podcast is all about a common type of excuse we use in weightloss. If you are a mother, go getter at work, or care-giver you will know exactly what we are talking about. The NOBLE OBSTACLE is going to change your life.

Why? It's important to know what's broke before you try to fix things.

If you use excuses then no food plan will be able to compete with their power.

So, what are Noble Obstacles? It's a concept defined by Jon Acuff in his book Finish. These are the excuses we use that sound SOOOO GOOD but in all honesty they just keep us from doing the hard work of weightloss.

I see this all the time in my Tribe.

Women are running around taking care of the kids, the husband, the job, and the dog, all at the expense of their own health and well being.

Think about it. If losing weight means you have to put your kids last who the hell is going to sign up for that? No one. The problem is this: our children should not be an excuse to eat cheeseburgers. 

Y'all…last time I checked McDonald served damn salads. 

I'm certain you'll enjoy the colorful way I teach you how to call BS on YOU.

    How about, “I can’t stop off at gym on way home from work because the dog will be sad.”


Hi, I'm Corinne

I lost 100 pounds and get what it is like to be overweight and feel defeated. I did a complete mental and physical transformation and now I teach women how to do the EXACT same thing. You can get started today with the free course.
