Episode 91: How to Handle Your Weight Loss Obstacles

When you undertake any goal, especially a big one like changing the way you eat to lose your extra weight, you’re bound to run into obstacles.

And, you’ll also run into excuses.

Obstacles podcast 91

Whatever you run into, how you view these roadblocks will either help you figure things out, or give up.

Of course, you don’t want to give up, right? So, let’s see the difference between your excuses, which keep you stuck, and the obstacles you face, which inspire you to find a way around them.

And, we’ll talk about the idea of using a role model who’s doing what you’d love to be doing, to inspire you. Do you look at other women who can get themselves to do what you can’t, and wonder what the difference between you really is?

It’s the difference between the way they think, and the way you think. Instead of looking at others and feeling envy, let me show you how to be inspired and motivated into action when you see others a few steps ahead of you.

Let’s do this. No more stopping and giving up. Let’s figure out how to turn your excuses into obstacles that you can figure out and overcome.

Join me for this coaching session that will help you move ahead in your weight loss journey.

Episode 90: What Are Your Weight Loss Expectations?

Tuesday, September 19th, 2017

Episode 90: What Are Your Weight Loss Expectations?

When you set an important goal, like changing how you eat and learning to eat naturally, what do you expect?

Expectations podcast 90

What do you expect to happen? And how do you expect things to go?

If you’ve tried and failed at changing your mind and your body, odds are good that you haven’t managed your expectations.

Your expectations about how hard or how easy it might be. Expectations about how you will handle slips. And expectations about your abilities to literally change your mind.

I believe that managing your expectations at the beginning of a life-changing journey can make or break your end results.

And today, I’d like to coach you through taking a look at the expectations you have and show you how to edit those expectations so they work for you, and not against you.

Join me as we talk about your expectations in the world of weight loss.

Episode 89: Time Management Interview with Jill Farmer

Tuesday, September 12th, 2017

Episode 89: Time Management Interview with Jill Farmer

You’re trying to make changes in your life. In how you eat. How you live. And basically, how you show up in this world.

Time podcast 89

And I’ll bet there have been times when you’ve said: “I can’t do it all! I just don’t have enough time!”

I understand. I’ve been there myself. And reading about time management (and trying to apply what I read) is one of my favorite pastimes.

So how do you do it? How do you find or make time for what is most important to you?

Join me and my guest, Jill Farmer, author of ‘There’s Not Enough Time… and Other Lies We Tell Ourselves’.

Here’s what we discuss:

  • What’s the most common complaint Jill hears from her clients?
  • Should we look at making a lifestyle change, like losing weight as a ‘to do’, or as a project?
  • Why is planning ahead important and how do you get yourself to do it?
  • How does perfectionism fit into how we manage our time?
  • Why is it so important to be able to say ‘no’?
  • And, what’s the biggest mistake people make when they are making a list of things to do?

I want to help you change, and change is made of up lots of actions and details.

Join me in this interview so you can learn to manage yourself better as you change.

Jill FarmerJill Farmer is the author of “There’s Not Enough Time… and Other Lies We Tell Ourselves” which debuted as a bestseller in the Time Management category on Amazon.

In 2015, The Washington Post named Jill to its 21-Day Time Hacker team as one of the top time experts in the country. Jill travels the U.S. delivering keynotes and teaching her acclaimed program for some of the top corporations and organizations in the world.

In addition to being a master certified life coach practicing since 2010, Jill Farmer is a wife and the mother of two daughters. For more than a decade, she was an Emmy Award winning consumer reporter and television anchor in St. Louis.

Jill is also the unsuccessful herder of the two worst-behaved dogs in the universe.

Episode 88: How to Officially End a Meal

Episode 88: How to Officially End a Meal

Let me guess. Sometimes, it’s hard for you to stop eating.

End meal podcast 88

If something tastes good, your meal may extend way after dinner has ended. And you find it hard to declare an official stopping point.

Well, this is exactly what I’m going to help you with today.

Once you determine that you’re hungry, and you start eating, the next step is knowing exactly how to stop. We’ve talked several times about recognizing your fullness and knowing when to stop.

What I’m talking about here is the actions you can take to declare the meal over, and move into the next part of your day or night.

Join me in this session and learn how to put closure on any meal.

Episode 87: Do You Get Most of Your Happiness from Food?

Tuesday, August 29th, 2017

Episode 87: Do You Get Most of Your Happiness from Food?

Exactly how much pleasure and happiness do YOU get from food? Do you sometimes feel like nothing else in your life can compete with the rush you get from a delicious dessert?

Happiness podcast 87

Or the savory delight of a perfectly cooked cheeseburger and fries?

Or for you, maybe it’s that special plate of pasta you love?

No matter what it is, sometimes other pleasures don’t seem to live up to the jolt of good feeling you get when you eat something yummy.

That’s why we need to talk, my friend! We need to get honest about your definition of pleasure. And you need to disconnect your happiness from food, and put it in it’s rightful place: something that’s really good, but it’s one of many things you give yourself to feel great.

Let’s dive into this subject and solve this puzzle, so you don’t keep getting hung up on this common internal conflict.

Do you struggle to lose weight or stop eating emotionally? If you do, click here to learn about how The Freedom Group can help. The Freedom Group is a coaching program with me as your coach and a group of like-minded women who will help you reach your goals. We’d love to have you in the group! Hurry, though!

Episode 86: Getting Over the Hump

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 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?

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.

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.
