Episode 125 – The Giving Tree

The We Only Look Thin team harvest another childhood memory and make it about weight loss.  This time, it’s the classic children’s book, “The Giving Tree”, by Shel Silverstein.  Sometimes on your fitness journ-venture, you’re the boy who takes and takes and takes.  Sometimes you’re the tree who gives and gives and gives.  Being 100% take or 100% give is not sustainable, and Catherine and Donald discuss how to live in the middle and how it’s one of the keys to long-term success.  Plus, Catherine is a metaphor mixologist, Donald lives in Egotown, and being a branchless tree with no apples is super chill.
