Sample Questions to Get Us Started (depends on the topic we choose)

Tell us your story. What’s your background and how did it lead to where you are now?
What are some of the pitfalls when it comes to losing weight…. why do so many people struggle with keeping the weight off?
What are some of the challenges women face to lose weight/ improve their health through menopause and beyond?
You say that weight loss starts in the mind- but how do we work on our mindset?
So many women are hard on themselves- does this help or hinder weight loss?
If you love and accept yourself, doesn’t that mean you’ll let yourself off the hook and get complacent?

I look forward to our interview!
