Are you working towards a goal but just can’t get there?

Are you trying to lose weight but find you can’t make it happen especially during menopause?

We start out with good intentions but we find we self-sabotage ourselves before we even start.

My guest is Jennifer Powter, Founder of the Weight Loss Academy, Mindset Coach and Author.  In this episode we discuss Why we sabotage our weight loss and how we can fix it.

During the interview we discussed:

1. Why Women are putting way too much time and effort into trying to solve the wrong problem – what’s the problem they really have?

2.What is self-sabotage

3. What are the other “family members of self-sabotage”?

4. The FINE theory and how this impacts the self-sabotage cycle 5. How does all of this really impact a woman’s health – physically, mentally, emotionally?
