Do you ever rebel against losing weight because you just can’t stand following the rules? Do you feel like other people want you to lose weight, and that kind of bugs you? Do you hate authority, especially when it comes to diets and weight loss boundaries? If so, this podcast will help! We’ll talk about what to do when you want to lose weight but hate following rules. (Scroll to the end of this post for other news.)
In this coaching interview, I visit with Trish about how to change your mindset towards rules and authority so you don’t really mind having weight loss boundaries and may even learn to love them.
Here are a few of the topics we’ll discuss:
- Why it’s important to associate consequences with breaking weight loss boundaries
- Authority: Is it good or bad? What makes it good or bad?
- Why parents and significant others often want us to lose weight
- How to not let it bother us when people want us to lose weight
- How to change our attitude towards weight loss boundaries or rules
- How focusing on renewing our minds rather than following our boundaries can keep us from feeling like failures when we break our boundaries

Great podcast, Barb! I especially like the way you gave a good perspective on why some of us may have experienced negative interactions as a child with our parents or other adults regarding our weight. It helped me to see their may have been good motives but a untruthful communication of the motives. Thank you for always delivering high-quality content on all your podcasts, books, blogs, etc. God is so good!!
