Episode 85: Boundaries and Your Weight — Healthy Self Care!
Show Notes

Boundaries are the ways we teach other people to treat us… I think that’s from Dr. Phil, actually. In our journey of weight loss, setting boundaries for ourselves establishes guardrails to keep us safe. When we set boundaries for ourselves or with other people, we are engaging in healthy acts of self-care. Too many people struggle to set boundaries, as most people were never taught what boundaries are, much less how to establish them. Low self-esteem also prevents people from setting boundaries or to say “no” when it comes time to protecting their time, space or possessions. It’s important to learn about healthy boundaries in order to lose weight and maintain a healthy weight. Boundaries keep us protected and keep us on track toward our goals. Listen in and learn more about how developing boundaries for yourself and with others will help you reach and maintain your goals of living a healthy lifestyle!
