Ep 39 What to Do When You Feel Like Quitting

Tuesday, September 27th, 2016

Episode 39: What to Do When You Feel Like Quitting

Let’s face it. You’ve probably given up on your eating and weight goals a few times. Or maybe more than a few times.

Quitting Podcast 39

You may be intimate friends with the art of giving up. Quitting. Walking away.

And when you do that, your goals remain a distant dream that you never quite achieve.

That’s why today, I’m going to coach you on quitting, and how to be prepared for those unwanted suggestions to drop what you’ve been attempting.

Here’s what we’ll cover in today’s coaching session:

  • What it looks and feels like when you think it’s time to quit and give up.
  • Why is this happening? Again!!
  • What if you believed that quitting was not an option? How would that make your outcome different?
  • If quitting isn’t an option, what are your options?
  • Is past failure evidence that you just can’t do this?
  • What should you do when you get those familiar urges to just give up?
  • Step by step plans to conquer the thoughts of stopping and walking away from your goals.
  • What your own patterns around quitting are and how to rewrite your story for a different outcome.
  • What you truly want and how to make it real.

Join me in this coaching session as I guide you toward knowing how to not give in to the familiar urge to quit.

Ep 38 Want to Lose Weight? Let’s Look at the Patterns that Caused You to Gain It — Part 2 of 2

Tuesday, September 20th, 2016

Episode 38: Want to Lose Weight? Let’s Look at the Patterns that Caused You to Gain It. Part 2 of 2

I know you’ve struggled. I know you don’t totally get why you can’t lose this weight.

But I do know how you can permanently lose the weight AND lose the whole problem.

patterns podcast 38

The answer: let me coach you and show you your patterns. Let’s take a good, deep look at how you got here, so you’re never in this position again.

Here’s what we’ll cover together in this episode:

  • Why it’s important to shine the light on your patterns: no more secrets!
  • No one does everything wrong, including you. But I’ll bet you lump all your failures together, and I’ll show you how to stop doing that.
  • Let’s move your focus from what went wrong to what you do right. (I’ll show you that there ARE things you do right!)
  • What have you been doing that you know you should do more of?
  • What habits do you have that you know you want to drop?
  • And what are you doing that you’d like to do less of?
  • Why knowing your patterns creates your own personal GPS, and let’s you create a perfect path to what you want.
  • How to create a personal plan for yourself, because generic plans don’t work.

You can do this. And figuring out what went wrong is the first step to doing things different.

Join me in this coaching session. Let’s do this!

Here is the worksheet mentioned in the episode: Discovering Your Patterns.

Ep 37 Want to Lose Weight? Let’s Figure Out Why You Gained It First — Part I of 2

Tuesday, September 13th, 2016

Episode 37: Want to Lose Weight? Let’s Figure Out Why You Gained It First. Part I of 2

All my clients are in a big hurry to get to their weight goal. They don’t want to waste a moment; they just want to get to the end.

I tell them the words they need to hear but definitely don’t want to hear. Those words: slow down!

gained podcast 37

If you don’t slow down and take a peek in the rear-view mirror, you’ll never learn how you ended up where you are, how you gained the weight.

And then you’ll be doomed to keep repeating your patterns.

Here’s what you’ll learn in this coaching session, the first of a two-part series:

  • Exactly why you need to look at your past weight and eating history.
  • Why your weight right now is exactly where it should be.
  • How to look at your weight and fact the facts, and not create drama about it.
  • Your weight today is no mystery… and why that’s a good thing.
  • What patterns led you to today?
  • Did you deal with your moods in the past with food?
  • Was your motivation lagging?
  • Did you have a strong vision of what you wanted?
  • Do you know how to pick yourself up when you inevitably fall down?
  • Did restriction and deprivation hold you back?
  • Are you a perfectionist? Perfectionism and weight loss don’t mix!

Let me help you figure out what went wrong so you don’t repeat it again.

You did the best you could in the past. But now, let me show you how to do better.

Here are the two worksheets mentioned in the episode: The Miracle Question and Creating My End Game.

Ep 36 Do You Really Need to Cook to Eat Well and Lose Weight?

Tuesday, September 6th, 2016

Episode 36: Do You Really Need to Cook to Eat Well and Lose Weight?

Both sides of a good question.

Are you a gourmet cook? Me neither!

Cook Podcast 36

Sometimes I’m a takeout queen, and other times I’m prepping food for a healthy week.

It’s really good to know where you stand in the cooking question debate: to cook or not to cook? That is the question.

Here’s what we’ll cover in this coaching session that you need to know and think about:

  • How the way you choose to feed yourself determines the ease or difficulty of your weight loss.
  • Why you might choose to cook in order to eat better.
  • On the other hand, why eating out might be stressful… or, it might actually make feeding yourself much easier.
  • Why does it feel safer regarding food choices to eat at home?
  • How to look at your food sensitivities and allergies so you aren’t feeling deprived.
  • What if cooking just isn’t your thing?
  • What are some options to restaurants, if you don’t want to cook?
  • How to feel in charge of what and how you eat no matter what method you choose to get food.
  • How do you make an eating plan that works?
  • Why it’s important to actually make a decision about cooking or not cooking.

Let me help you face the facts and make a choice, so you have no guilt and you always know where your next meal is coming from.

Ep 34 Want a Treat? Here’s How to Lose Weight AND Have Treat Foods

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2016

Episode 34: Want a Treat? Here’s How to Lose Weight AND Have Treat Foods

Gone are the days of super-strict diets of cottage cheese, broiled chicken and steamed broccoli. At least I hope those days are gone for you.

Treat Podcast 34

Learning how to eat to support your natural weight requires foods that are good for you AND foods that are delicious. Otherwise, you know you’ll never be able to stick to a plan for very long.

But what is a treat? And how much do you give yourself?

Join me in this episode as I teach you and coach you on these concepts of eating treats:

  • Exactly what do you consider a treat?
  • How can you look at treats and leave behind the good vs. bad mentality?
  • Is it okay for you to eat just for fun and pleasure?
  • How does overeating play into treat foods?
  • Do you give yourself a treat that’s a certain type of food, or do you go for quantity?
  • What do you listen to: your mind or your body when it comes to treats?
  • What’s the trick to keep your treats under control?

And more.

I want to show you how to create a way of eating that allows you to get to your natural weight, while giving you the natural pleasure we all get and want from good foods.

Here it is!

Ep 32 How to Get Past Your Greatest Weight Loss Fears

Tuesday, August 9th, 2016

Episode 32: How to Get Past Your Greatest Weight Loss Fears

It’s inevitable. Just like clockwork. It always comes up.

All my clients think this. Sometimes it comes up early, in the consultation. Other times it comes up after a couple of coaching sessions, once my clients feel more comfortable with me.

Fears Podcast 32

They ask:

  • Have you ever had a client who just couldn’t do it?
  • Couldn’t lose the extra weight?
  • Couldn’t stop emotionally eating? Or binge eating?

You might ask because you’re afraid.

Afraid of being the exception. Afraid of just not being able to do what it takes. Afraid that there’s something wrong with you. And that you will always, always struggle.

Just because you haven’t yet achieved what you want to achieve doesn’t mean you can’t. But I am talking about this today because I really want you to know that you’re not alone in having these fears.

I want you to face these fears and understand where they come from. Why they feel so real to you. And learn how to bust through these fears and do what you really want to do. Eat well. Stop when you’ve had enough. Create a body you feel good in. And live your life.

Join me as I talk about your most secret fears about your weight and your eating, and how to get rid of them now.

Ep 31 When it Comes to Weight Loss, Must You Always Keep Your Promises?

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2016

Episode 31: When it Comes to Weight Loss, Must You Always Keep Your Promises?

How to Know When to Keep Your Promise to Yourself and When to Negotiate a New One

Promises Podcast 31

You have a goal. Check!

You have a great reason for losing weight. Your big ‘why’. Check!

And you create a plan. Check!

All systems ready to go.

But wait! As you start your project of working on your mind and body, certain situations come up. Situations that cause you to want to change plans and not keep your promises to yourself.

What do you do? Do you change plans or keep your word, no matter what?

Here’s how to look at this common condition:

  • When you make plans, why do things always come up that cause you to second-guess yourself?
  • Do you have a flexible plan? Or stay firm no matter what?
  • What’s the danger of not keeping your promises to yourself?
  • Does it sound like a whole debate team in your head when you try to figure out what to do?
  • Is the road narrow all the time? Or can you widen the road and still be on it?
  • What if you think you’ll never get the opportunity to eat this food again? Ever?
  • Should you bend your own rules when the desire to eat comes from an emotion?

Join me as I coach you on promises. Promises you make to yourself to help you change your eating. When to keep them and when to break them.
