Listening to podcasts about weight loss is very motivating to me. Half Size Me is my favorite. What weight loss podcasts do you enjoy?

    I listen to Half Size Me, too. It's actually the only weight loss one I listen to. I like High Performance Mindset for the workout side of things.

    Unpopular opinion here. I have tried to listen to Half Size Me numerous times because so many people recommend it. But something about her voice just annoys the heck out of me. I can't stand it, for some reason (maybe it reminds me of someone from my past, idk). I like We Only Look Thin and Losing 100 Pounds With Corinne (be forewarned about her potty mouth). There are also some good weight loss episodes if you scroll through the Food Heals podcast.

    I've used Podcast Addict and Pocketcasts.

    I’m not sure I’ve tried ‘Half Size Me’ yet, but how you describe feeling about the voice is exactly how I felt about the couple on ‘We Only Look Thin’!

    I got to the point listening to their voices that I quite honestly wanted to scream! I deleted it from my podcast library instantly.

    I listen to all of my podcasts through Apple podcasts on my iPhone.

    Not necessarily weight loss-specific but I started listening to the RP Strength podcast a little while ago and have been enjoying it. It's certainly a little self-serving at times when they mention books and programs under the RP banner but the content on a variety topics have been very interesting thus far; motivation, discipline, habits, training, etc.

    This is how I felt about Denise Austin back in the day when I had her aerobics videos :smiley:

    Half Size Me Heather's voice doesn't bother me though. I never just sat and listened to her - I was always walking or gardening so she never had my full attention. Maybe that helps. Also I forwarded over a lot of the junk in the beginning.

    I like the message that both Heather from Half Size Me and Donald and Catherine from We Only LOOK Thin emphasize. Sustainability. I enjoy some episodes more than others. With HSM I prefer the interviews to the Coaching calls.

    I like Optimal Health Daily which is broader than weight loss and exercise. The title of each episode make it clear if it is of interest to me. Each episode is short. I find them inspiring.

    I’ve tried others and downloaded some more to try, but I only have so many hours to listen to them. 😋 I like to go back to the first of a podcasts and listen to them mostly in order, so I haven’t run out of episodes yet!
