Overcoming Weight Loss Resistance

Weight loss resistance can seem like an inescapable maze for many individuals, particularly as they age. It’s not just about slashing calories; it’s about a thoughtful, overall approach to eating and self-care. Join us today as we discuss all things weight: weight loss, midlife weight loss, weight loss resistance, stress, cortisol, and the key to it all! Let’s explore how setting intentions, embracing self-compassion, and understanding biological factors play crucial roles in our journey toward a healthier body and life.
