    Congrats on her success! I’ve lost 80 lbs eating a balanced diet, lifting and walking and have been maintaining for a few years and I still enjoy listening to weight loss podcasts.

    From what I listened (had to stop about halfway through) had good information, but the speaker had a bit of a ‘holier than thou’ delivery that I found tough to listen to after awhile. Hopefully though it will help others!
