What if this time, you didn’t quit? It’s a lot easier said than done, but believe it or not, there are techniques that you can practice to help you get good at not quitting. WOLT Place member Dana sent Catherine and Donald an article by author Eric Barker that breaks down those techniques. In this week’s episode, the couple take you through the five steps and relate them to their own experiences at losing and keeping off over a hundred pounds each. If Donald and Catherine can learn resilience, you can too. Plus, Catherine teaches the Vanilla Ice technique, Donald isn’t busy buying castles, and Buzz Lightyear makes all the difference.
