Episode 86: Getting Over the Hump

Whenever you try to change what you typically do, it’s really common to hit the wall. The wall of your old habits.

Hump podcast 86

Changing these old habits involves a little discomfort. I like to call the act of dealing with the discomfort: getting over the hump!

Once you get over the hump, and you’ve been willing to temporarily feel some discomfort, a whole new world will open up to you.

You won’t be controlled by your habits. And we know habits play a big role in how you eat.

So settle in and join me in this coaching session and learn how to get over the hump of discomfort to make real change in your eating and in your weight.

Episode 85a: The Freedom Group

The Freedom Group is revamped and ready and waiting for you. But only if you’re ready to stop overeating, end that emotional eating and drop the weight. For good.

Freedom group podcast 85a

For over 25 years, I’ve worked with private clients, showing them how to not only lose weight, but also do it in a way that doesn’t feel so hard, AND do it in a way that gives them permanent results.

That’s a big promise. And that’s exactly what we do in the Freedom Group.

We bond together for teaching, coaching, support and the gentle kick in the butt that you sometimes need.

And, when you complete my 4-month program, and maybe hang around a bit longer to dive deep into your personal challenges, you will be empowered.

You will be your own guru. Your own coach. Your own CEO of YOU. And you will love your life AND your body.

Take a look right here. I’d love to see you in the Freedom Group and coach you.

This group will only open for new members three times each year. And after this enrollment period, it will be closed for new members until 2018.

If you love the Weight Loss Made Real podcast, you will love this group coaching experience.

See you there.

Episode 85: How to be Your Own Weight Loss Guru and Why You Should!

Tuesday, August 15th, 2017

Episode 85: How to be Your Own Weight Loss Guru and Why You Should!

Here’s what I hear all the time: “Just tell me what to eat!” “Just tell me what to do and I’ll do it!” “Help me do this!”

Guru podcast 85

And here’s what I think when my group members say this: I am not your guru.

You are your guru, and you could be amazing at knowing exactly what do to and how to eat if you would stop looking outside of yourself.

You know yourself better than anyone. And that includes me. Yet you’re confused about what to do and how to do it. I understand.

I think your goal should be to learn how to think about your challenge, and not just look for someone, anyone, to tell you what to do and how to do it.

Do you want to stop being at the mercy of all the gurus out there? Then join me in this coaching session. We’ll talk all about gurus and why they are so appealing.

And then I will show you why you need to be your own guru and how to begin to do exactly that.

Are you curious about a group that empowers you to be your own, confident, knowing guru? Click here to read about the Freedom Group. If overeating or emotional eating is your thing, this group will empower you to learn to take care of yourself, learn how you should be eating for your particular body, and learn to manage your thoughts and emotions. This group only opens three times a year, so be sure to take a look now.

Episode 84: What Are Your Values?

Episode 84: What Are Your Values?

Do you know what your values are? What do you believe? How do you choose to live your life?

Values podcast 84

These are questions we rarely sit down and think about. Yet your values rule your life. Or should rule your life.

When you aren’t aligned with what’s important to you and what you believe, then you will feel out of whack. You’ll have a hard time keeping promises to yourself. And a hard time getting where you want to go.

Let’s use today’s coaching session to help you take a look at your values, and see whether your life is in sync with what you truly value and want.

Episode 82: Fullness: A Deeper Look at How to Tell When You Should Stop Eating

Tuesday, July 25th, 2017

Episode 82: Fullness: A Deeper Look at How to Tell When You Should Stop Eating

Do you have trouble with the feeling of fullness and stopping eating when you’ve had enough? Welcome to a very large club!

Fullness podcast 82

Most of my clients find it MUCH easier to know when they are hungry than they do knowing when they are lightly satisfied.

Why is it so hard to figure out when enough is enough?

Partly, it’s such a subjective thing. There is no beeper or alarm or light that goes off like the one in your car.

Wouldn’t it be nice if some personal signal let you know exactly when you were full?

One of the challenges is that if you have extra weight on your body, you are most likely to be used to feeling full a lot of the time.

If you get used to that feeling, then that becomes the normal time to stop eating.

Join me as I give you a system for knowing how to tell when you’ve had enough, no matter now good it is, and stop eating.

Episode 81: Bad Day? Don’t Eat Your Way Through a Bad Day

Episode 81: Bad Day? Don’t Eat Your Way Through a Bad Day

When was the last time you had a ‘bad day’? Go back to that day and let’s think about it together.

Bad day podcast 81

Did it feel like things just happened to you that you had no control over?

Sometimes things DO happen, to all of us. But things that happen don’t have to give us that dreaded bad day.

In this coaching session, we are going to make some changes in the way you think about your days, so the ‘bad’ days are much more rare.

What makes a bad day for you? And once you decide it’s a bad day, what happens? How is your bad day connected to your eating?

Let’s look at the truth behind what truly makes a bad day and show you where you do have so much more control than you think you do.

Can you change your feelings about your day and leave your food and eating out of it? Absolutely!

Let me give you a whole new perspective on how to treat yourself no matter what kind of day unfolds for you.

See you in the coaching session!

Episode 80: Weekend Weight Loss or Weight Gain?

Tuesday, July 11th, 2017

Episode 80: Weekend Weight Loss or Weight Gain?

What does your typical eating week look like?

If you’re like I used to be, it would look straight and narrow Monday through Thursday, and wide-open and full speed ahead on the weekend.

Weekend podcast 80

I’d tell myself on Friday that I deserved to reward myself for getting through the week. For accomplishing all that I did. For putting in hours and powering through, even when I was tired.

And, I had a very willing partner in my husband, David, whose favorite suggestion is always, “Let’s treat ourselves! It’s the weekend!”

So… I deserved to ‘treat myself’, right?

And that’s what I did. Until too many Monday mornings of shame, regret, and an upward moving scale woke me up.

I finally realized that if I kept up the pattern I was living in, I’d never get where I wanted to go.

I’d never accomplish my eating goals. My self-care goals. And certainly not my weight goals.

So, what’s the solution? Do you have to be strict and rigid and hard on yourself all the time?

No! If you know me, you know that’s not how I roll. Pull up a comfy chair and listen as I coach you on how to have a good week AND a good weekend and still be heading in the right direction.

Episode 79: Why You May Fear Regaining the Weight You Lose

Episode 79: Why You May Fear Regaining the Weight You Lose

Welcome back, my friend!

Imagine that you’ve done it! You’ve held on long enough to change the way you are eating. You’ve stopped eating emotionally. Maybe you’ve been resisting those urges to binge.

Regaining podcast 79

But oddly enough, you don’t feel confident and proud. You feel nervous and insecure.

Why? Because you may have used sheer willpower to accomplish your feat, and that isn’t enough.

That isn’t enough to change from the inside out. To change deeply enough that you do walk around feeling relaxed and proud and confident.

And my goal for you is that if someone asks how you eat or what you do for yourself, you might find it hard to explain, because these days you think: That’s just how I live!

So let’s talk about changing from the inside out, so you don’t fear regaining weight you lost, or slipping back into old habits.

I will see you in the coaching session.

Episode 78a: Binge Eating? A Short Announcement with Kathryn Hansen

Wednesday, June 28th, 2017

Episode 78a: Binge Eating? A Short Announcement with Kathryn Hansen

Hello there! This is a short bonus announcement for all of you who are struggling with binge eating.

Binge eating podcast 78a

You may know that a couple of times a year I offer, with my friend and colleague, Kathryn Hansen, a live 8-week course that we teach together. This course is based on Kathryn’s books in the Brain Over Binge series.

We’ve had amazing results with our students.

And yet we know that a class, or group format isn’t for everyone. Maybe your schedule doesn’t allow you to make the calls. Maybe you like the anonymity of working alone. Or maybe you like to dive deep and spend time exploring certain subjects in more depth than the class schedule allows.

What Kathryn and I are announcing today is the debut of our Brain Over Binge Independent Study Course. Take a peek right here and see if this is right for you.

We are so excited that we can offer this. We hope you become one of our listeners who have learned to make binge eating a thing of their past.
