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 66: Why Taking a Pause in Your Weight Loss is Good, But Why It’s Not Good to Stop

Tuesday, April 4th, 2017

Episode 66: Why Taking a Pause in Your Weight Loss is Good, But Why It’s Not Good to Stop

Have you ever made a plan to eat differently, and then failed? Failure in my eyes may be different from how you see failure in yourself.

Pause podcast 66

To me, making a mistake is not a failure. But making a mistake and falling down and not getting back up is the true definition of failure.

What I’d like to coach you about today is learning how to create a pause instead of a stop.

A pause where you evaluate what’s going on and what you might need to adjust to move on.

And moving on is definitely part of the picture.

I think one of the most common mistakes my clients make is falling down and staying down.

Do you do this? It sure takes a big toll on you and how you see yourself. And it doesn’t have to be this way.

Join me in this coaching session where we talk about the different ways of handling a slip, and how to learn from it vs. just stop.

Episode 65: Did You Just Overeat? How to Compensate Without Punishing Yourself

Tuesday, March 28th, 2017

Episode 65: Did You Just Overeat? How to Compensate Without Punishing Yourself

We all  overeat sometimes, especially on our way toward learning how to eat naturally.

The important thing to look at when you DO overeat is what you do immediately after.

Overeat podcast 65

Do you punish yourself? Do you restrict your eating to ‘make up’ for what you just overate?

You may very well be sabotaging yourself without realizing it!

Restricting your eating following an overeating episode messes with your survival instincts.

It reinforces a habit that is exactly what you want to stop doing!

Listen in and join me in this coaching session as I teach you why it’s so important not to restrict your eating after you’ve overeaten.

If you regularly swing between overeating and then under-eating, this session is for you!

Episode 64: How to Stop Making the Same Mistakes

Tuesday, March 21st, 2017

Episode 64: How to Stop Making the Same Mistakes

Do you keep making the same eating mistakes? Over and over again?

Mistakes podcast 64

You know how bad it feels. You see what you’re doing. You see it happening. It’s almost like watching a movie, starring you.

And you feel helpless to step in and make a change.

Here’s how to do it. Here is the process you’ll take once you understand how change unfolds.

From unaware.

To aware but without responsibility.

From taking responsibility yet still doing what you don’t want to be doing.

And then to, voila, change!

When you see things differently, you will act differently.

Click here for a copy of the poem I love that so beautifully illustrates this concept.

Which chapter do you see yourself in? Does it help to know what’s next?

Let me know how you do.

Goin’ Gray!

Thursday, December 15th, 2016

Woman coloring her hair to remove grayAllow me to clarify for a moment here.

The hair coloring process of Cookie Rosenblum will not be stopping anytime soon.

Nope. Covering my gray hairs will continue indefinitely.

The gray I’m talking about is beneath my crowning glory. And yours too.

It’s your mindset.

You know how you (and a million others) may have a tiny tendency to think in black and white?

Here’s how it goes:

  • You see yourself as either a good person or a terrible person.
  • Either you’re on a strict diet or eating everything that doesn’t have a pulse.
  • You might be glued to your couch eating chips, or you find yourself training for a marathon.

Sound familiar?

Well, here’s the deal.

Nothing is all good.

Or all bad.

Especially not you.

Striving to be all good all the time is guaranteed to do nothing but make you feel bad about yourself.

And why would you want to do that?

Conversely, telling yourself you’re a terrible person because something you tried wasn’t perfect puts you down that slippery slope of self-judgment.

Neither extreme works.

Neither extreme feels good.

So, go for gray.

Be okay with being just okay.

And know that being okay doesn’t mean giving up, not trying at all, or doing your worst.

It means, simply, that sometimes it’s okay to just do okay.

Not great.

Not terrible.

But okay is okay.

Ep 44 Do You Think Weight Loss is TOO Hard?

Tuesday, November 1st, 2016

Episode 44: Do You Think Weight Loss is TOO Hard?

When was the last time you caught yourself saying, “This is just too hard!”?

weight loss hard podcast 44

When you’re changing your eating to eat naturally and get to a comfortable weight, there will be challenges.

There will be roadblocks. But finding your way around the roadblocks is your work.

It’s necessary and helps you grow.

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

  • How do you define something as ‘hard’?
  • What goes on in your mind when you think something is TOO hard?
  • Understand how and why continually thinking things are too hard will keep you stuck exactly where you are.
  • I know this is hard to believe, but hard is good, and I will show you why.
  • How can you reframe ‘hard’?
  • Learn to manage your mind to deal with and even welcome challenges.
  • Can you think of a time you got through something challenging? How did you feel afterwards?
  • What is the key phrase you can use to feel good when you have a challenge, even if you don’t know how to move forward in the moment?

Join me today in your coaching session about doing hard things. If you want anything different than you have at this moment, then hard is on the menu. Let’s get you ready for it.

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.

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.
