I grew up in a home where teasing was allowed—and those are just a few of the “funny” words I heard as a girl.

But it was also that same year that we got serious about changing our dysfunctional patterns with money.

To do that, we had to look back at our family’s patterns with money.

And we were both surprised by what we found out!

3 Primary Reasons Why We Become (or Stay) Overweight

If you are overweight (as I once was), you can become obsessed with food, losing weight and that number on the scale.

But it’s almost impossible to get fit until you consider the underlying factors that are creating your body to become (or stay) overweight, because putting on weight isn’t just something that “happens” to us.

It often follows certain beliefs that we can so easily believe.

In this video, consider which of these 3 reasons may be true for you. (And find out which 2 of the 3 I dealt with.)
