Note: Reshape Physical Therapy and Wellness evolved into Weight Loss for Health, and finally Zivli. How to Lose Weight After 50 was our first course that eventually grew into Zivli. Some old blog posts or resources mentioned in this episode may have been removed. 

In this week’s episode, Sarah and Morgan discuss the role that resilience plays in losing weight and keeping it off. Resilience is the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties, aka toughness. We could all use a little more of that, especially during these crazy COVID-19 times.

If you really want to lose weight and keep it off, you have to cultivate the skill of resilience. This isn’t something you’re born with, you can learn how to become more resilient. It doesn’t matter how many times you stop. It matters how many times you start again.
