Show Notes

Are you a people pleaser? Well… if you have trouble saying “no,” feel responsible for other people’s feelings, avoid conflict at all costs, apologize a lot, and feel like you never have time for yourself (especially if you’re busy doing so much for so many others)… then it could be that you are, indeed, a people pleaser! There’s nothing wrong with wanting to help others… unless you are so busy doing for so many others that you neglect to take care of yourself. If you say you’re “too busy” or “don’t have time” to meal prep, exercise, take ten minutes to do absolutely nothing, or grab yourself a protein drink in the morning on the way to work, you are probably people-pleasing your way through life at your own expense. This will result in not following through with what you need to do to lose weight or maintain weight. Listen to today’s episode and learn more about how excessive people-pleasing behavior can sabotage your weight loss goals.
