Episode 65: Holding Yourself Accountable




Summary

In this episode of Weight Loss for Food-Lovers, Molly speaks about the importance of accountability and why it’s an essential component of weight loss.


Many people fail to reach their goal because they don’t actually believe success is possible. Hope is not a strategy, it is a loose commitment. Every single person is capable of losing weight. No one needs to be ‘fixed’ because it’s not the person that’s wrong, it’s the mindset. Accountability is crucial in unwinding these programmed thoughts and habits in order to change.


Making a firm commitment can be scary because deep down, we are afraid that we will let ourselves down. We don’t want to come face-to-face with our ‘inner critic,’ or receive ‘punishment’ for not meeting our goals. This is not what accountability is about. It’s a chance to practice compassion and create awareness while moving forward.
