When it comes to moving your butt, I hear a variety of limiting beliefs.

“I can’t lose weight walking”.

“I don’t have time”

As you are to give up and take a bite, you quickly run to the nearest mirror to see the amazing results of your newest diet. It always keeps you motivated. You are committed to look fabulous this winter. When everyone else seem to enjoy an extra piece of food going for cozy and hidden, you are not one of them. Hot all year long is what you are going for.

Should I restrict calories to lose weight?

  • cookies – a half two days ago (while PMS-ing)
  • diet – oh yes!

So what’s WRONG?
