Ep. 294: The Three Stages of Weight Loss

Every weight loss journey is unique, but you will also inevitably come across three universal “pit stops” along your way. On this episode of the Get Your GOAL podcast, we’re chatting about the three stages of weight loss, so you can navigate the road with ease.

When you set out to achieve a weight loss goal, it can feel like you’re traveling alone and you might even wonder if you’re the only one who feels confused or overwhelmed or stuck.

But you’re definitely not alone.

Over the years of working with thousands of women losing weight, I’ve identified three distinct stages of the weight loss journey that everybody goes through: the first five pounds, which are swirling with indecision; the “messy middle,” which challenges your patience and fortitude; and the last five pounds, where so many women are tempted to quit right before they reach the finish line.

When you know what to expect along the way, this weight loss journey won’t feel so treacherous – embrace your journey, celebrate your milestones, and bask in the certainty of your inevitable success. Join me for this week’s episode, and let’s go!
