Episode 44 – Canary In A Coal Mine

Legend has it that miners took canaries into coal mines to act as a warning sign of dangerous gasses.  Are you hiding from your scale? Refusing to wear your fitness tracker? Saying things like, “I’ll start next week”? These are all weight loss “canaries in coal mines” that you are approaching danger.  In this episode, Catherine and Donald talk about recognizing the signs of danger and trying to do the opposite of what your instincts tell you to do.  Don’t hide.  Share with others.  Like when your car spins out on black ice, you turn into the spin even when your instincts tell you to turn away.  The Tip of the Week (TOW!) is to stop following people and pages on Social Media that are hurting your weight loss goals.   The Product of the Week (POW!) is the excellent book, “The Gifts of Imperfection” by Brene Brown.  Also, the couple attempt to answer the age-old question, “Why is gravy so good?”.
