Episode 94: Don’t Believe All Your Thoughts

Wait a minute – you shouldn’t believe everything you think? Aren’t your thoughts true? They sure seem to be the truth.

Thoughts podcast 94

Where do your thoughts even come from? What happens if you question your thoughts? And while we’re at it, what’s the difference between a thought, a belief, and a feeling?

We make a lot of assumptions every day – about our thoughts, our beliefs, our feelings, and our reality.

There is so much going on in your mind – all the time – that’s true. But you have the power to choose which thoughts to pay attention to. And what you choose affects your reality. But how do you choose?

Today we’ll talk about where your thoughts come from, how to know which ones to believe, and how to take back your power over them.

Listen to this coaching session to learn how your thoughts create your reality. Then use that knowledge to start creating an even better life for yourself – one thought at a time.

Episode 91: How to Handle Your Weight Loss Obstacles

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

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

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 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 76: How to Honor Your Hunger AND Eat with Others

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 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 72: Treat or Snack?

Snickers before lunch? Cupcakes before dinner? Fast food after breakfast?

Treat or snack podcast 72

What do you eat and when do you eat it? If you’re a regular listener, you know that the first thing you need to do is check in with yourself and make sure you’re hungry.

And then if you are, what do you eat?

In this short and sweet coaching session, I teach you the difference between a snack and a treat.

We talk about when you might want to have either one. And how to make smart choices when the time comes.

It’s time to stop kidding yourself about your food choices. It’s time to know when to eat what. And be able to shed your extra weight and stick to your plan.

Let’s dive into the snack vs. treat debate.

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.
