Weight Watchers Friendly Videos I Bookmarked this Week
In this video Amanda shares an example of what she eats on Freestyle for a Day. She also talks about indulgent meals and their effect on her weight loss as she gets closer to her goal. I love when she shares her “lightbulb moment” on how some of the people she was following on social media were causing her to feel bad about herself and what she did about it. Her epiphany related to her self talk is powerful too.
