Don't miss listening to this podcast, everyone! It's a very positive and realistic discussion about weight, and some issues with regard to weight. It's not judgemental or condescending! I especially appreciated the mention of the power of intention. I do believe that's the key to, well... everything that I want to be in my life!

Thank you very much, that was very interesting and I could identify with it so much. I lost all my weight and put it back on again. I don't want to do that again.

Thank you for the excellent interview with Renee. I have been struggling with the last 20 lbs for a long time and need to do something different to become healthy and thin.


Wow, forgiveness! I never ever thought about forgiving myself. It sounds so obvious when I hear it, but never heard it before. Forgive myself for overeating, for being overweight for gaining more weight. I recognize how much shame and shaming and blaming has been done to me and I have done to myself about my weight. No one has ever suggested forgiving myself.
