For most of us, certainly for me, the key to achieving and maintaining your weight loss goals is in understanding how to stop self sabotage.

This is far easier said than done but it is 100% possible if you're willing to pay attention, be honest with yourself and acknowledge that you have everything it takes to improve your life and change your behavior.

In today's episode we're addressing a listener challenge that, to me, points to the gap between planning and doing. Maybe you recognize this pattern: you establish a plan. You set goals. You draft a menu for the week. You pre-determine how many workouts you'll get in. You stock up on healthy groceries. You don't execute. The groceries go to waste. You don't make it to the gym. You bring home takeout after working late. The next week, you go back to the same process. You refine your plan. You make it more specific. You spend more time on the plan than on the execution of the plan.
