Episode 1: My Story

In the kick off episode, Kathy and I share our stories of obesity and what you need to do to lose weight.

If you don’t know, at the age of nine I started writing and the very first sentence started with how I hated being fat. In the 8th grade I weighed 210lbs., throughout high school my weight hovered around 175lbs., and then in my 20’s I landed at 250lbs.

I share with you today the moment that changed my life. The moment where I decided I would never do ANYTHING to lose weight I couldn’t keep doing the rest of my life.

12 years later I’m podcasting about how YOU can do this, too.

One of the valuable lessons in this first podcast is HOW to keep COMMITMENTS to yourself.

Think about it, so many of us want to lose weight so bad we will do anything…except stick to it. I’ll give you straight talk about how you cannot afford to keep up the habit of breaking promises to yourself.

You’ll learn that the first step to losing weight is being willing to do what you say you will do. And no more. You’ll learn how to make real changes that drop the weight. Not just change everything HOPING to lose weight.

And, you will also learn how to create SMALL, DOABLE steps that lead to long term weight loss success.

    How can I listen to your podcast if I have an Android phone? Not an Apple.

  • Dianna tkachuk says:

    How or where can I find all your podcasts? Seems like I can only find a few of them.

    • Maria Ladd says:

      Cindy, download Castbox from Google Play store and then subscribe to Losing 100 Pounds with Phit-n-Phat =>

    Please do something for Google pixel XL owners and Android phone. Not everyone likes or can afford apple.

  • Sue says:

    This was EXACTLY what I was looking for and what I needed. Thank you!!! I am excited to finally keep my promises to myself!! 😁

  • Donna says:

    Just found your site. I am so sick and tired of being sick and tired. I am a great starter, but poor finisher. Never finish anything.

  • Stacy Troutsma says:

    Favorite take always:
    I will never do anything to lose weight that I can’t keep doing for the rest of my life.
    Know where I am and where I want to be (I did the exercise and will add to it as I go)
    If I want to find reasons I am overweight I’ll find them but that doesn’t mean I have to keep them.

    Thanks Corinne
    I am going to commit to follow your program and your advice.

    Hi, I'm Corinne

    I lost 100 pounds and get what it is like to be overweight and feel defeated. I did a complete mental and physical transformation and now I teach women how to do the EXACT same thing. You can get started today with the free course.
