Crushing Your Goals, Maintaining Your Integrity and Overcoming Your Breakdowns with Bruce Pitcher

Episode 128Brute Strength


This week is round two with my friend Bruce Pitcher. Bruce was a participant in ABC’s Extreme Weight Loss about five years ago and he lost over 200 pounds in one year. Bruce shared his weight loss story with me in episode 6. Today he’s highlighting the differences that separate him from the participants that haven’t been able to keep the weight off. We talk goal setting, hitting rock bottom, and why your excuses are completely worthless. Enjoy the show!
