Conquering Obesity, with George Watson

George has been working with business owners since 2002 in building empathetic cultures of kindness that nurture the human spirit and outperform all median cultures by at least 200%. He's a Jesus follower, a marathoner, rides an electric unicycle for his favorite hobby and is passionately in love with his wife Laurene of 33 years and father of 3 adult children.

What you will learn in this episode:

  • George’s vulnerable experience with his marriage and how he created the marriage he wanted for himself
  • How George’s commitment to his marriage is similar to his commitment to weight loss
  • The shocking realization that led to George committing to making a change
  • George’s former understanding of health and how he worked through finding the solution that worked for him
  • How George’s positive perspective of his weight kept him from making the necessary changes until he had to face the reality of the situation
  • The beginning of George’s weightloss journey and his surprising early successes
  • How shame actually perpetuates the action you’re shameful of
