Ep. 15: I’m Too Fat Is Never a Good Excuse

Today we hear about how we tell ourselves all the things we're too fat to do!

One of my clients even told me her calves were too big to get a pedicure!

If you talk down to yourself or shame yourself in order to motivate yourself, let me tell you it doesn't work!

That's definitely not the fast track to results! The only way to get a positive result for your weight loss is to start with positive thoughts.

Hear the inspirational story of our She-Tries triathletes! The women of the Tribe that met in Charleston to do a sprint triathlon, many of them for the first time! They are all such a testament to the idea that we all have weight, but everything I decide to think about it is up to me. The best part is figuring out how to face fear, feel uncomfortable, and do it anyway.


And, as I told you about my “podcast jail”…here's what Kathy sees each day. I think the SheTri girls take a much better photo.

    Great podcast. It made me cry as I have lived that lie so long. I did a 5k walk a few years ago, I was afraid I wouldn’t finish in the time limit. But I did make it. Then I “rested” and stopped training, and gained back any weight I had lost plus more. The I Can’t is mostly I don’t want to because…..all excuses. Thank you for these, they will be the help I need to keep going.

    This brings back a memory of my first 5k with my daughter. I walked/ran and my daughter ran by my side cheering me on. I crossed the finish line and burst into tears!!! It was so emotional!!! I didn’t know why then but now I do!

    Wow did I need to hear this. I shame myself all the time. Like sleeveless shirts, I wear them but I always say I’m too fat to wear this but it’s too hot outside not too. I am really enjoying your videos and your posts. I’m at 309 pounds right now and just started the food prepping. I’m almost 44. Gotta do this for myself and my family


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.
