Episode 85a: The Freedom Group

The Freedom Group is revamped and ready and waiting for you. But only if you’re ready to stop overeating, end that emotional eating and drop the weight. For good.

Freedom group podcast 85a

For over 25 years, I’ve worked with private clients, showing them how to not only lose weight, but also do it in a way that doesn’t feel so hard, AND do it in a way that gives them permanent results.

That’s a big promise. And that’s exactly what we do in the Freedom Group.

We bond together for teaching, coaching, support and the gentle kick in the butt that you sometimes need.

And, when you complete my 4-month program, and maybe hang around a bit longer to dive deep into your personal challenges, you will be empowered.

You will be your own guru. Your own coach. Your own CEO of YOU. And you will love your life AND your body.

Take a look right here. I’d love to see you in the Freedom Group and coach you.

This group will only open for new members three times each year. And after this enrollment period, it will be closed for new members until 2018.

If you love the Weight Loss Made Real podcast, you will love this group coaching experience.

See you there.

Coming Soon!

I am developing two new products especially for you: a Podcast Study Guide and a complete Weight Loss Made Real Home Study Program. If you would like to be notified when they are available, please click here and join the waiting list.

Episode 78a: Binge Eating? A Short Announcement with Kathryn Hansen

Episode 78a: Binge Eating? A Short Announcement with Kathryn Hansen

Hello there! This is a short bonus announcement for all of you who are struggling with binge eating.

Binge eating podcast 78a

You may know that a couple of times a year I offer, with my friend and colleague, Kathryn Hansen, a live 8-week course that we teach together. This course is based on Kathryn’s books in the Brain Over Binge series.

We’ve had amazing results with our students.

And yet we know that a class, or group format isn’t for everyone. Maybe your schedule doesn’t allow you to make the calls. Maybe you like the anonymity of working alone. Or maybe you like to dive deep and spend time exploring certain subjects in more depth than the class schedule allows.

What Kathryn and I are announcing today is the debut of our Brain Over Binge Independent Study Course. Take a peek right here and see if this is right for you.

We are so excited that we can offer this. We hope you become one of our listeners who have learned to make binge eating a thing of their past.

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.

Coming Soon!

Episode 74: What Will Really Be Different When You Finally Lose Weight?

Tuesday, May 30th, 2017

Episode 74: What Will Really Be Different When You Finally Lose Weight?

Do you dream about how things will be different in the future? You know, once you lose weight. Once you eat differently. Once you stop bingeing. Or once you truly start taking care of yourself.

Different podcast 74

This dream sounds so smart. It makes you feel excited to move forward and make changes. But changing who you are and how you live is an inside job. It doesn’t automatically happen when your weight changes.

Changing your body comes from new thinking and eventually new eating.

But truly changing your future is available to you right now. Even with whatever you weight today.

If weight loss is your goal and you reach it, no doubt you’ll have a smaller body.

But surprisingly, some things will be better and many more will still be the same.

So how do you motivate yourself to move forward and learn to act and think in new ways, while understanding that weighing a certain number doesn’t change your life?

You start right here. With me today, in your coaching session.

Episode 73: Why I Don’t Believe Your Weight Loss Excuses, and Why You Shouldn’t Either!

Tuesday, May 23rd, 2017

Episode 73: Why I Don’t Believe Your Weight Loss Excuses, and Why You Shouldn’t Either!

What are your favorite excuses? I’m sure you’re a bit indignant right now, as in: I don’t have any favorite excuses!

But let me assure you, you definitely do!

Excuses podcast 73

If you constantly start and stop your weight loss efforts, and your efforts to stop bingeing and take better care of yourself, the ‘stop’ part comes about because of your excuses.

Excuses are made-up stories you tell yourself about why you can’t do something.

I know you don’t really want to believe them. But you do.

In this coaching session, I’m going to show you what an excuse is, and how it’s different from an obstacle.

We’re going to talk about why and how your brain falls in love with your excuses, and doesn’t want to let them go. Even though they hurt you.

If this sounds like the bad boyfriend from 7th grade who you wanted to dump but couldn’t, sit down and listen.

I’m going to show you how to break up with those old harmful excuses. And in the process, find your way around any obstacles that ARE real.

Let’s dive in!

Episode 70: Why Do I Keep Saying “Screw It!”?

Tuesday, May 2nd, 2017

Episode 70: Why Do I Keep Saying “Screw It!”?

Welcome back! I hope you are enjoying these coaching sessions as much as I am.

Screw it podcast 70

Have you ever reached the point in your eating and weight loss journey, where things aren’t going well, and you say: “The heck with it!”

Or, “I just can’t do this!” Or, “I’ll just start tomorrow.” Or, “Something must be wrong with me.”

All these thoughts have one big thing in common: they stop you from moving forward and take you totally off track. They keep you stuck in a pattern of failure.

All are versions of screw it!

These are habitual negative ways of thinking when things don’t go as planned. And they all prevent you from achieving what you want most: peaceful eating and, for many of you, weight loss as well.

So today, I’m going to coach you about this common thought of screw it. We’ll talk about when it comes up, what it might sound like in your own mind, why you think it at all, and, finally, how to stop saying, “Who cares!” and what to think instead.

I will help you stop what constantly derails you: your seemingly innocent thoughts.

I will see you in the session!

Episode 69: Where Do I Start Making Changes for Weight Loss?

Episode 69: Where Do I Start Making Changes for Weight Loss?

Do you love these coaching sessions but don’t exactly know where to start?

Start podcast 69

Here is your answer: You start right here. You start with getting really clear on what your problem is. Define it.

Episode 1: The Difference Between Emotional Eating, Binge Eating and Compulsive Overeating

You’d be amazed at how many clients over-exaggerate and generalize their problems. I want the facts, just the facts.

Once you’ve done that, I want you to get crystal clear on what’s gone wrong for you in the past. If you’re not sure, you’ll be doomed to repeating your mistakes over and over again. And we both know how useful that is!

Episode 2: Clearing Your Path to Weight Loss Success!

Click here to get a downloadable copy of my book, Clearing Your Path to Permanent Weight Loss, so you can begin to figure this out. It’s free for my listeners.

And then, create your project. Project YOU.

With all the moving parts and plans and goals and reasons why you’re doing this. Get it all out and organized and begin looking at it in a different way.

Episode 5: Working on Project YOU: Creating Your Weight Loss Blueprint

You can certainly do this. I’m certain. And this podcast will help you take the first steps.

Episode 68: Why You Need to Take a Leap of Faith

Tuesday, April 18th, 2017

Episode 68: Why You Need to Take a Leap of Faith

Whether you want to lose weight or stop bingeing, you need to do something differently than what you’ve always done.

Leap of faith podcast 68

And when you try to do something differently, you come up against your thinking.

What if this doesn’t work? What if I just can’t do it? What if I’m different?

What do you do now that you’ve come up against these roadblocks?

There is no proof that something you’ve never done before will work. Yet if you don’t take different actions, you’ll keep doing what you’ve always done. And you know what result that gives you, right?

So the answer is to do what you’ve never done.

How?

By taking a leap of faith. By making an educated choice to do something that is different and uncomfortable and has the potential to take you to the results you dream of.

How do you create a new practice of taking a leap of faith to help you in your journey to lose weight and stop bingeing?

Listen in as I coach you on exactly that: how to get yourself to do new things, things you know are good for you, even though you’ve never done them before.

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.
