Do you wish someone could just give you the magic key to the kingdom and tell you what to eat?

Worst to eat podcast 59

How much of your life does binge eating consume? If you want your life back, we know exactly what you need to do. And, you can do this. Find out more here.

So many of my clients want just that. They don’t want to work, they just want the answer to the lifelong question: What do I have to do to lose weight?

Is that your question, too?

If it is, here is the answer: Eat like a naturally slim woman.

Manage your mind and your emotions so you don’t eat your feelings. And learn how to take the best care of yourself.

That’s right. The basics.

If your next response is: I already know that, then this coaching session is perfect for you.

Join me as I lead you in a brief coaching session and show you why the basics work and how you might be sabotaging yourself without realizing it.

Episode 58: Want Weight Loss? Aim for Imperfection!

Tuesday, February 7th, 2017

Episode 58: Want Weight Loss? Aim for Imperfection!

I can just hear you now. No. No. I can’t aim for imperfection. I’m different. I’m special. I’m always at the head of the class. I HAVE to do things perfectly.

Imperfection podcast 58

How much of your life does binge eating consume? If you want your life back, we know exactly what you need to do. And, you can do this. Find out more here.

My dear listener, no, you don’t. Your perfectionism is holding you back from doing great things.

Learning new ways to eat and feel and think all take practice. Just like a baby learning how to walk.

I know you’re special. But you still have to go through the learning curve. And that means doing things imperfectly.

And then practicing and practicing until you do them really, really well.

Let me coach you. Let me show you why you wish for that A+. And what learning really means. And specifically what’s required to learn new ways to eat and think.

And then we can talk about why learning new eating skills MUST be imperfect. And, exactly what steps to take.

And last, I will coach you and show you how to keep moving, and not stop and give up, right through imperfection.

B- anyone? Join me. It will be good.

Episode 57: Want to Lose Weight? Stop Saying These 4 Words!

Episode 57: Want to Lose Weight? Stop Saying These 4 Words!

Have you ever listened to, or read, the answer to your eating challenge, and thought: “I already know that!”?

Well, if you did, you certainly aren’t alone. But did you know how poisonous those four little words are?

Words podcast 57

Those words keep you searching for a magical solution. Those words keep you stuck looking outside of yourself, instead of inside at what you’re doing, and what you’re thinking.

If you want to end your weight and eating struggle, you’ve got to start by being honest with yourself.

Instead of thinking, I already know that… I want you to be honest and think: “If I already know that, why aren’t I doing it?”

If you’re a regular listener, you know that your thoughts create all your habits and all your actions.

If you want to do things differently, eat differently and even create different moods, you’ll need to start catching yourself when your brain says: I already know that!

And in this episode I will show you exactly how to do this.

Join me, and get more in charge of your thoughts so you can get yourself to really do what you know you should.

  • What is a slump?
  • How does it show up in your life? What does it look like?
  • And, what does it feel like?
  • Why slumps occasionally happen to everyone.
  • And what your three choices are when you’re officially in a slump.
  • Finally, getting out… how to think, feel and act to get yourself out of that low-feeling slump.

Episode 55: How to Eat at a Buffet When You’re Trying to Lose Weight

Episode 55: How to Eat at a Buffet When You’re Trying to Lose Weight

Hi there! Do you ever eat in a restaurant?

Of course, you do! These days we all eat out more than ever before. And one of the most fearful eating experiences when eating out is dealing with a buffet.

Buffet podcast 55

You know, those restaurants where there are long, long tables of food and all of it looks and smells delicious.

You know that in the past, the buffet signaled the end of your self-control and the beginning of regret and shame.

But there’s a new way to look at an eating event like a buffet. Or any restaurant meal. Or dinner at a friend’s house where you have no choice about what is served.

In this coaching session, we are going to talk about a new way to not only eat at a buffet, but a new way to think about buffets.

With this new mindset, you will be in charge of yourself and your eating no matter what’s in front of you.

So get cozy and grab a notebook, and get ready to be coached.

Want to be spontaneous and just wing it? Then you should know what your results are likely to be.

What could feel better than a fresh start?

But often, as you know, those multiple fresh starts don’t usually have what it takes for you to get past the first month, or maybe even the first week.

I know that it’s likely that you secretly beat yourself up about your weight right now, all while trying to valiantly push forward to reach your goals.

Stop right there. That doesn’t work, and we’re not going to do that anymore. I need you to put away all the thoughts related to ‘failure’ before you set any goals or make any promises to yourself.

You want to do this, right? Then join me in this coaching session and let me show you how to really start the new year off right.

Episode 52: The Top 8 Concepts About Weight Loss and Eating that You Learned This Year: What You Need to Know to Succeed

Tuesday, December 27th, 2016

Episode 52: The Top 8 Concepts About Weight Loss and Eating that You Learned This Year: What You Need to Know to Succeed

It’s hard to believe it’s been a year! This is our 52nd episode of Weight Loss Made Real and I hope you’ve enjoyed your coaching sessions.

Concepts podcast 52

With so much material covered, it may be hard for you to organize it all and try to follow the concepts.

So in this episode, I’ve put together what I consider your top 8, most important coaching sessions and concepts. You might want to go back and listen to these again, as you decide what you want to choose to focus on in the New Year.

Here we go with your top 8 concepts:

Concept #1: Clear your path. Learn from your past mistakes. This is covered in Episode 2, Let’s Clear Your Path to Weight Loss Success.

Concept #2: Connect with your body. Here you’ll learn how to eat like a naturally slim person, and you can find this in Episode 3 (How to eat like a naturally slim woman) and Episode 6 (When to start eating and when to stop).

Concept #3: Challenge your thoughts. It’s mind management time! Go back and listen to Episode 7 (Managing your mind to end your emotional eating) and Episode 13 (Understanding and ending your emotional eating).

Concept #4: Check your habits. Your habits either help you or hurt you. Let’s look at what you are doing and what you’d rather be doing. You’ll find this in Episode 11 (Your eating habits).

Concept #5: Working on Project Y.O.U. Do you remember why it makes so much sense to work on your eating, your weight, and yourself in general as if it were a project? Take a listen to Episode 5, called Working on Project You.

Concept #6: Cherish yourself! You’ve heard me talk about self-care, self-worth, and self-esteem. All different ways of saying LOVE! Go back to Episode 9 and listen to How to care for yourself so you can do the right thing.

Concept #7 is all about creating your own tool kit. This is not from a published podcast, but is coming in a future episode. How to put all the things you’ve learned into a tool kit that you can pull out and use as needed to get through Project YOU.

And last, is Concept #8: Banish Your Binges. Here I remind you of some of the things I talked about with Kathryn Hansen, of Brain Over Binge, to help you get rid of those life-disrupting urges to binge. You can find our talk in Episode 8, and can apply what you learn there to binge eating of course, but also to emotional eating and general overeating.

Here’s to another year of growth for you. Keep listening and keep learning. You can do this!

Xoxo,
Cookie
