Podcast: Lori Schaefer turns 48, loses 211 lbs
After I shared the short version of my transformation story on NBC’s The Biggest Loser, I had the privilege of sharing a much longer version with Brett Fairell who started the podcast and website titled: “Your Way Weight Loss.”
I met Brett at the Biggest Loser after-party where we swapped transformation stories. Brett lost 173 lbs and his way was the Paleo diet. Like me, Brett is paying it forward, and asked me to be interviewed for his podcast. Here is my full interview titled: Lori Schaefer Turns 48, loses 211 lbs.
Many of us who have fought obesity most of our lives, lose hope that we can get the weight off, get healthy, and live a different life.
While I totally understand that outlook because I was there for so many years, I’m here to say BULLSHIT!
I am living proof (as is Brett) that you CAN do it. And this website is filled with podcasts that carry hope and inspiration, as well as lots of different methods for getting there and achieving your dreams.
So, to those of you reading this who are feeling lost or hopeless… Or, if you are reading this and you have someone in your life in that camp, please click on this link and listen to my podcast — and all the others that counter the argument that it’s hopeless. Because it’s not! There is a way and we prove it.
To those of your struggling, I say: Personal transformation is available to YOU. Health and happiness is available to YOU. And, YOU can do it. There are many of us out there who want to help. So, please, if you are struggling…be brave. Start here. Listen to my podcast, reach out via my blog and tell me what you think. And remember, you can do this.
We’ve totally got this!
P.S. Podcasts are great to listen to when you are driving long distances, working out or going for a walk. And to my new friend, Brett Fairell — thank you for the podcast sharing my story and so many others who have had success losing weight “their way.”
