Episode 111: More Mindful Eating and Living — Part 2

Hi there!

I hope you enjoyed Episode 110, about waking up and getting your eating off autopilot.

Mindful podcast 111

Now, continuing with that theme, you and I will work on looking at the rest of your life in a more mindful way.

Here’s what we’ll cover in this coaching session:

  • Why living your life on autopilot causes you to miss out on a lot of good things.
  • How eating without distractions sounds good but isn’t realistic for most of us.
  • Is meditation required for living a more mindful life?
  • The most common reasons I hear for why becoming mindful doesn’t work.
  • Why acknowledging that you are the center of your life makes it much easier to know what to do and what to work on.
  • Creating a vision of what a mindful day would look like.
  • A challenge to create your own mindful day vision.
  • The feelings you should have when you leave unneeded food on your plate.

Episode 110: Wake Up! Get Your Eating Off Autopilot

Tuesday, February 5th, 2019

Episode 110: Wake Up! Get Your Eating Off Autopilot

Wake up!

No, I don’t mean in the morning. But I do mean in your life. And especially when you are eating.

Wake Up podcast 110

I wonder if you are aware how much of your overeating happens when you are zoned out, not paying attention to what and how much you are eating?

Well, this is really common. But common or not, I don’t want this to be something that you continue to do.

Eating is pleasurable. And if you enjoy good food like I do, I want you to taste and appreciate every bite.

Besides getting more pleasure out of your food, the other component of eating with mindfulness is that you get to hear your built-in signals that tell you how much to eat.

That’s right. You don’t need a diet to know when to eat and when to stop.

But you have to be awake and aware every time you eat in order to hear these signals.

So in this coaching session today, I’m going to be talking to you about:

  • What eating on autopilot is.
  • How to recognize it in yourself.
  • Why you might be doing it.
  • What you need to stop.
  • And of course, how to stop eating without realizing what you’re doing.

Join me in this coaching session and learn how to be fully present with your food. And in your life. And in the next episode, Episode 111, we will continue this theme. It’s called, Eating Mindfully: How to Eat with Intention and Attention.

I’ll see you in our next session.

Episode 109: Self-Love at Any Weight

Tuesday, January 29th, 2019

Episode 109: Self-Love at Any Weight

Hello there!

I’m so glad you’re joining me for this coaching session today. If you have a problem even hearing me mention ‘self-care’ or ‘self-love’, then this session is for you!

Self-love podcast 109

What do I mean when I talk about self-love as related to weight loss? Well, it’s all about the care you give yourself.

Now, I can just hear you thinking: When I get to my goal weight, that’s when I’ll do nice things for myself. But for now:

  • I don’t deserve it.
  • I don’t have time.
  • I don’t even know what to do or how to do it!
  • This is something other people do – not me.

Does this sound familiar? Then you’re in the right place.

I’m going to show you what happens when you don’t take good care of yourself.

And how it affects not only your general level of contentment, but also your eating and your weight.

So join me as I help you create a plan to build self-love into your life right now, no matter your number on the scale. I want you to learn what it takes to not only do it, but to feel worthy and deserving of self-love.

You can do this, and this will make your weight loss journey easier and more pleasurable.

I’ll see you in the session.

Episode 108: Back to Weight Loss Basics!

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2019

Episode 108: Back to Weight Loss Basics!

Do you rebel when you hear me talk about getting back to basics? I would venture a guess that you might.

This is because it’s natural to always want something new. Something exciting. A new solution to an old problem.

Basics podcast 108

But what if the solution to your long-term problem of overeating and eating when you’re stressed was right in front of you?

You’d have to give up the search to see the direction you should be facing.

Everything I know comes down to three things that you need to learn to make your eating problems things of the past:

  • Eat
  • Think
  • Love

These three basics are what make up how you show up in your life, and sometimes they are working and balanced, and often, they aren’t.

Without learning how to eat like a natural eater, or learning to manage your mind, and of course, learning how to take great care of yourself, you will flounder.

And if you’re an emotional eater, floundering for you will show up as extra pounds on your body. Believe it or not, when you overeat, not only are you practicing a habit you don’t really want, but you are trying to take care of yourself. You are trying to do your best.

But, it’s not working.

Here is where I want you to go back to the basics, the foundational skills that will help you be the best you that you can be.

So, you can take all that energy that you use lamenting your weight, your eating habits and your body… and use that energy to go into the world and do amazing things.

Join me today as we go back to the drawing board and focus on what works: eat, think and love.

You can do this!

Episode 107: Recommit to Your Weight Loss and Eating Goals

Tuesday, January 15th, 2019

Episode 107: Recommit to Your Weight Loss and Eating Goals

If you are ready to set some goals and get what you truly want this year, then you’ll have to think about and work on developing your commitment or recommitment.

Recommit podcast 107

A commitment to yourself, to your goal and to not giving up.

That is what I will work on with you in this coaching session today.

I want you to succeed. And I want you to know the feeling of pride in yourself when you get yourself to do what you most want to do.

Despite obstacles and despite slipping back into old patterns.

Commitment is so important! Here’s what you’ll learn today:

  • How to commit with passion even if you’ve failed to reach your goal many times.
  • Why self-belief is not optional.
  • How you might be using your past to predict your future, and why this is a mistake.
  • Are you a perfectionist? I want you to understand how this can hold you back.
  • How to stop arguing with reality over the process you must go through to get what you want.
  • Why some sacrifice is a good thing.
  • And, how to determine which stage of change you’re currently in, and what you can and can’t do in each stage.

There is no perfect time to start working towards a goal, not a Monday, not New Year’s Day, nor the first of any month.

You can begin working towards your goals any day, any time, and any moment.

Step into your future with me and let’s get you what you most want: lasting weight loss, natural eating habits and the ability to keep your promise to yourself.

I will see you in the coaching session!

Episode 106: Why Do You Really Want to Lose Weight?

Tuesday, January 8th, 2019

Episode 106: Why Do You Really Want to Lose Weight?

Lose weight podcast 106

If I were to ask you why you wanted to lose weight, either you’d look at me like I was crazy, or you’d go through a whole mental list of reasons you’ve accumulated through the years.

  • You might want to look better.
  • Or be a smaller size.
  • Or have ‘better’ clothes that fit you.
  • Maybe it’s how you show up in your job, your public image.
  • Or perhaps you have a big event coming up and you’d rather not show up in the body you currently have.

Why would I even ask such a simplistic question? Shouldn’t I know better?

Well, I’ll bet you’d be surprised to know that most of your reasons aren’t true.

They are what you THINK you want to get out of losing weight and changing how you eat. But they are merely surface reasons and won’t carry you through this journey.

That’s right! Your reason for wanting to do this is what creates fuel for your desire. Your big reason for doing anything is why you wake up and keep doing what’s right for you to reach your goals.

So, in this coaching session, I’d like to invite you to dig a little deeper. Let’s go behind and underneath the reasons you say you want to make eating changes.

And let’s get to the truth. What do you wish you could feel? What attitude do you wish you could have as you walk through the world?

That’s what you’re really after. And today, I’m going to show you how to get the feeling you want.

Because when you change how you think and get that feeling you lust after, it’s simply a matter of time before your body changes as well.

Let’s do this!

Episode 105: I’m Back! And Here’s What I’ve Learned!

Tuesday, January 1st, 2019

Episode 105: I’m Back! And Here’s What I’ve Learned!

Join me as I return to my podcast and you, my beloved listener, after a life-changing challenge.

Learned podcast 105

After I went through this challenge, I was able to stand back and see with more clarity, some things about myself.

As I was able to do this, I also realized that much of what I learned can be applied to you as you travel through the challenges of learning to eat and think like a naturally slim woman.

I wonder if you realize how strong you are, and just what you are able to do? It’s so much more than you probably know.

And it’s interesting to think about the way you view this journey. Do you ever think: “This is just too hard! It’s not fair. And I just can’t do it.”

I used to think that too, but this past year has made me realize just how much I was capable of.

Also, no matter what I went though, which I will reveal in this episode, I finally was able to see that I’m still me. I know there are times when you look in the mirror and it’s almost as if you don’t recognize yourself with extra weight.

Rest assured that you are always in there, and you are always you. The essence of you is constant. No matter what you weigh. You are not lost. And this is good news.

And finally, I thought a lot about the difficulty I had asking for help. What this meant about me, and how it held me back.

And then I turned the corner and realized that it’s SMART to ask for help and to know when you need it. And this applies to you too.

If you’re curious to hear my heartfelt message to you about what happened to me, what I learned and how it applies to you, I hope you’ll listen to this coaching session.

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

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
