In this episode, It’s my pleasure to interview Meg
Meg lives in the NYC metropolitan area and has a professional background in elementary education.
She grew up overweight and started focusing on health at 25. Unlike many others, She had never really tried to lose weight before that, she just remembers hearing and reading that lasting weight loss was impossible, that most people who are able to lose a significant amount of weight inevitably regain it at some point, so she assumed there would be no point.
Fortunately, once Meg started the changes were significant and quite addictive! She stuck with it and has lost 192lbs. She says It’s difficult to fully express how much my life has changed – before she spent most days off work in bed, exhausted. She also says mentally; the changes have been profound – she was previously a chronic procrastinator and has become generally ambitious and active. She says now she loves to exercise and move primarily because it feels so amazing not to be limited by her physical body anymore!
In this episode, we talk about how she managed to lose the weight, some of the success and failures along the way, and how voluntary hardship has pointed her in the right direction throughout her life.
