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 77: A Little Tough Love: Why It’s Important to Tackle Your Weight and Eating Issues

Do you ever ask yourself: Why bother? Why am I doing this? Who cares about my weight and my eating and what difference does it make?

Tough love podcast 77

Well, grab a seat because it’s time for a little tough love session, with your coach.

There are many important reasons for you to do several things:

  1. Accept yourself where you are.
  2. Conquer anything that uses up your thoughts and energy, taking you away from where you are meant to go.
  3. Always know that taking care of you is the foundation for a good, happy life.

I want you to stop trying to lose weight and change your eating if you’re doing it strictly for self-improvement.

But I do want you to not stop until you are where you want to be so you can do what you’re meant to do in the world.

Join me in this short and sweet tough love session. And for more tough love, listen to Episode 48.

Episode 76: How to Honor Your Hunger AND Eat with Others

Tuesday, June 13th, 2017

Episode 76: How to Honor Your Hunger AND Eat with Others

I know you’ve probably been working on learning to eat more naturally so your body can get to the weight you’re meant to be. And that means learning to eat when you’re nicely hungry, not starving, and stopping when you are comfortably full, but not stuffed.

Hunger podcast 76

This is a process. And it’s easier to do when you’re eating alone, with little to no distractions.

But life is full and busy and we all have connections: friends, family and co-workers. And sharing meals is part of the fun of relationships.

So how do you focus on your body’s signals of hunger and fullness while you’re with others?

What do you do when they’re ready to eat and your body isn’t?

And how do you manage your hunger to fit with all the times you’ll be dining with the people in your life, who may easily be on different schedules than you?

In this coaching session, I will show you how to manage your hunger so no matter what’s on the calendar, you will be able to honor yourself AND have a life with other people.

Episode 75: Why You MUST Have Clear Guidelines to Lose Weight!

Tuesday, June 6th, 2017

Episode 75: Why You MUST Have Clear Guidelines to Lose Weight!

You know all those promises you make to yourself?

“I’ll do better.” “I’ll be good.” “I’ll eat less.”

Guidelines podcast 75

Well, they are worthless. Sorry to burst your bubble, but our coaching sessions aim to get you past doing what you’ve always done, and onto doing what works.

And one of the first things that needs to change is the clarity… yes, the clarity of the promises you make.

I want you to start creating guidelines and getting totally clear on what you will and won’t do. Exactly what are these promises to yourself?

Because only when you are really clear will you be able to make the right decision when faced with choices in the moment.

Eating better or eating less is meaningless in the moment you are sitting in front of a plate of food.

What does better mean? And exactly what does less mean?

Here’s where we will nail this down together: I want you to be able to keep your promises to get the results you want. To do that, you need to learn to make better promises. Starting now.

Join me in this coaching session as I show you how to toss the old general goals and promises, and instead, create clear and motivating guidelines that you can actually follow.

I will see you in the session.
