Episode 104: Four Concepts to Focus on in the New Year

Tuesday, December 26th, 2017

Episode 104: Four Concepts to Focus on in the New Year

Cookie is taking a brief health-related leave of absence, but she will be back. In the meantime, listen to episodes 1 – 104 and dive deeper into all the content with the Podcast Study Guide. And be sure to get on the wait list so you know when the Freedom Group opens up, and be coached by Cookie.

New year podcast 104

Can you believe it’s the end of another year with me? We’ve had so many coaching sessions together, with lots of new information.

I wanted to take today to outline for you some of the things I want you to focus on in the New Year.

Here they are:

1. I want you to listen to Episode 57. Here, we talk about the four most dangerous words you can say to yourself. Any idea what they are? They are: “I ALREADY KNOW THAT!”

When you say these words, you guarantee that you won’t learn anything new, or change your perspective.

2. Next, revisit Episode 68. I want you to understand why it’s so important to take a leap of faith. We will talk about what it is, and of course, how to do it. You cannot move forward if you don’t do what you have never done. I understand that you have no proof that you can do the unknown, but this is how you do it. You take a leap of faith. And you build your confidence.

3. Now, we move on to Episode 70. How often do you fall down and instead of getting back up, you say: “Screw it!” This is a dead-end statement. It stops you in your tracks, and it can become very habitual. Let’s learn how to fall down and get back up quickly!

4. And finally, have a listen to Episode 75. Do you have CLEAR guidelines? How you will eat? And why? And when? And how will you know when to stop? If you are thinking, “No, but I’ll just be good,” this won’t work. Clear guidelines are the way to go if you want definite results.

Join me in this session that summarizes some of the most important things you learned with me this year.

See you soon.

Episode 103: Why Slowing Down Helps Your Weight Loss

Tuesday, December 19th, 2017

Episode 103: Why Slowing Down Helps Your Weight Loss

How do you operate? I mean, in your life. Do you rush through everything, trying to get to the end of your ‘to do’ list? Do you pause to smell the roses?

Slowing down podcast 103

And if you do rush through, at 1.5 speed, how is that working for you? How is it working when you are trying to change how you eat, how you do things, how you deal with challenges?

My guess is that it doesn’t work. I’ve learned the hard way that leaving no time and no space in my schedule doesn’t give me the results I want. Actually, it tends to give me the opposite of what I want.

There needs to be some time and space in your life. To think. This is critical, especially in areas where you want to make changes.

And yet, if you’re anything like me, I can hear you protest:

“There is no time to slow down! My kids! My job! My commitments! My opportunities!”

So, you may continue to run at 1.5 speed, and then beat yourself up, because, guess what? Those changes you want to make? They aren’t happening.

Here’s the deal, my friend. You can do it all and you can have it all. But not all at once. And you need to slow down in order to think. And that is how you create change in your life.

Join me and let’s deal with all the reasons you’re already thinking that you can’t possibly slow down.

Episode 102: Listener Questions About Sugar, Caffeine and Alcohol

Tuesday, December 12th, 2017

Episode 102: Listener Questions About Sugar, Caffeine and Alcohol

Have you ever wondered if you were the only person in the world who struggled with a particular challenge?

Questions podcast 102

Chances are, you’re not.

Unique as you are, you’re not alone in this journey. And you’re not alone in what you find difficult, and what you are seeking answers to.

So today, I am answering questions from three listeners. I think you will relate to these questions.

One is from Mary about sugar. One is from Sudha about drinks and caffeine. And the last is from Paula about alcohol.

Each one of these may have its own future podcast episode.

In this coaching session, I mention a previous podcast about deprivation. Please check that out, because when you say ‘no’ to yourself, that sneaky brain of yours might try to convince you that you’re deprived.

You’re not! And I want you to understand why.

I am approaching the questions about sugar, caffeine and alcohol from a coaching and psychology perspective. Not from the perspective of body chemistry or nutrition.

Let me know what you think and if you’ve ever struggled with any of these substances. Do you keep them in your life? If so, in what amounts? What are your guidelines?

Let’s take a look at the mindset of indulging in sugar, caffeine and alcohol, and how they might affect you.

Mentioned in this episode: Episode 22: How Fear of Deprivation Makes You Overeat and What to Do About It

Episode 101: Using These Podcasts as Your Own Private Coaching Sessions

I hope you are loving these podcasts and think of them as private coaching sessions between you and me. That is how I think when I’m recording them for you.

Coaching podcast 101

Many of you have written to me telling me amazing stories of weight lost, habits changed and lives improved, all from listening to these coaching sessions.

And some of you have written to me asking for more help. You love the content of what I’m saying but you have trouble applying the ideas to your own, day-to-day life.

Well, that’s what we will cover today. I will show you how you can take these podcasts and use them to more deeply incorporate what I teach, into your days. This will help you change your eating, thinking and self-care. And of course, this is how you change your weight!

And, if you like things done for you, check out the link below for more information on my Weight Loss Made Real Podcast Study Guide. It’s designed to help you dive deeper into everything I talk about, so you can live the change, not just think about it.

I’ll see you in the coaching session.

Episode 100: Keep Your Weight Loss Goals on the Front Burner

Tuesday, November 28th, 2017

Episode 100: Keep Your Weight Loss Goals on the Front Burner

You know what you want to do. You’ve figured out how to do it. And you know what your next step needs to be.

Front burner podcast 100

But somehow, you get busy. You get distracted. And then, poof! Your goal is gone!

You literally, in the moment, forget what you were trying to do. All your plans fly out of your head and you proceed, doing what you’ve always done.

Why does this happen? Trust that you’re not alone in ‘forgetting’ what you were planning to do. It happens because of habit and distraction.

And in this coaching session, I’m going to help you shine the light on your old habits, and lessen the likelihood of this happening to you, so your weight loss goal stays on the front burner of your mind.

Make a plan, know your next step, and poof! You actually do it! That is your goal, so you can make the changes you want. Let’s do this!

Episode 99: Unearth the Fear that Sabotages Your Weight Loss

Tuesday, November 21st, 2017

Episode 99: Unearth the Fear that Sabotages Your Weight Loss

At this point, you know what you might be doing that holds back from what you want most: permanent weight loss.

Fear podcast 99

  • Maybe you eat before you’re physically hungry.
  • Maybe you keep eating long after your body has had enough.
  • Maybe you eat to ease an uncomfortable emotion.
  • Or maybe you do a combination of these things.

But even when you work on changing and addressing those things, sometimes you might still find yourself going back, over and over, to acting and eating in a way that isn’t helpful.

And sometimes the reason you do this is fear.

Fear of what is next.

What happens after you finally lose your extra weight, learn to manage your moods, and take better care of yourself?

That’s what I’d like to work on with you today.

Demystifying that big black hole of the unknown AFTER you lose your weight and lose the whole problem.

Let’s look ahead and bust through that fear together.

Episode 98: The Math of Weight Loss

Tuesday, November 14th, 2017

Episode 98: The Math of Weight Loss

Are you baffled about why you weigh what you weigh? Do you just tend to take all the factors that make up weight loss and lump them all together?

Math podcast 98

That’s not how I think about it. I like to look at what you weigh as a very simple, objective equation. Your weight, on one side, is made up of all the different parts of your life:

  • Your food.
  • How you eat.
  • How you think.
  • The choices you make.
  • How you take care of yourself.

Just to name a few.

So if you want to change your number, your weight, listen in as I show you how to view your weight as a simple equation.

And if you want to change the number, you can play with all the parts that make up your life.

Sound complicated? It’s not. Join me as I show you the New Math of Weight Loss. No calculator needed. Promise!

Episode 97: Writing Down Your Weight

Tuesday, November 7th, 2017

Episode 97: Writing Down Your Weight

Do you remember Julia Cameron and her book, The Artist’s Way?

It was all about writing each day in order to tap into your creative thoughts.

Writing podcast 97

Today, I’m going to share two of the tools I like best from another one of her books, called The Writing Diet.

What if spending a few minutes each day writing instead of eating could help you get to the root of things?

Wouldn’t you try it? I want to help you get some clarity, instead of getting those cookies.

So join me as I discuss and teach two of Julia’s tools that can help you access whatever is causing you to eat more than you need, and holds you back from what you want most: freedom.

See you in the session.

Episode 96: How a Food Journal Can Help You Lose Weight

Tuesday, October 31st, 2017

Episode 96: How a Food Journal Can Help You Lose Weight

Oh, my goodness! Just the mere mention of keeping a food journal is enough to throw most of my clients into a tizzy.

Food Journal podcast 96

How about you? What memories does the thought of writing down what you eat, bring up for you?

Could it be memories of shame and judgment and thinking poorly of yourself?

Remember when you dieted, and you slipped, (of course you slipped!) and you went to write down that slip and ugh! You felt terrible?

No more. I am not saying you must keep a food journal. But if you are stuck in a plateau, and don’t know why your weight is at a certain point, keeping a journal for a few days can be a dose of truth.

And nothing moves you ahead faster than dealing with reality as it is, not as you wish it were, not as you remember it was, nor as you hope it should be.

Reality is what you are truly doing, and eating, and that is giving you the result you have.

Let’s lose the old image of the harsh, punishing food journal and look at a simpler version that will help you play detective in your own life.
