Subscribe: Spotify |

In this episode, we are excited to dive into the inspiring journey of Priyanka Venugopal, a coffee-loving mama bear with a profound love of learning. From a young age, Priyanka’s enthusiasm for education was evident as she eagerly raised her hand in class, always ready to erase the blackboards, and strove to achieve top grades and earn Gold Stars.

Despite not being overweight during her childhood, Priyanka struggled with a constant sense of discomfort within herself. As she aimed to be better, well-liked, and the epitome of a “perfect kid,” she grappled with her self-image and personal identity.

Join us as Priyanka opens up about her high school years, where her weight became a growing concern. She candidly shares how she experimented with various fad diets and tried to maintain discipline, causing fluctuations on the scale. Little did she know that life had more significant challenges in store for her after medical school and residency.

Things took an unexpected turn when Priyanka embraced motherhood and had her first child. This period marked her heaviest weight, and her previous strategies to manage it no longer proved effective. She refers to this phase of her life as the “good-on-paper-heavy-in-my-mind” time, where she felt lost in the struggle to balance her new roles as a mom and a high-achieving professional.

However, amidst these challenges, Priyanka stumbled upon Coaching, which became a true turning point. Through self-discovery and a growth mindset, she managed to shed over 60 lbs without resorting to obsessing over points or calories. Her journey of transformation was powerful and inspiring.

Today, Priyanka is on a mission to help and guide other high-achieving working moms who find themselves in similar situations. Her creation, “The Unstoppable Mom Brain,” serves as a beacon of hope and empowerment for these moms, letting them know that positive change doesn’t have to wait until the end. In this episode, she shares valuable insights and practical tips that will resonate with every listener, reminding us that it’s never too late to create a life filled with fulfillment, joy, and well-being.
