Episode 130: Secret Eating – Who Are You Really Hiding From?

Episode 130: Secret Eating – Who Are You Really Hiding From?

Secret Eating Podcast 130

Tell me if you can relate to this:

  • You go out with friends for a nice restaurant meal and you order a salad. But when you leave, you stop and go through a drive-through, and over-indulge as soon as you get home.
  • You are cleaning up after a nice dinner with friends, and as soon as you bring those plates into the kitchen, you’re throwing away their scraps but you’re also eating half of them.
  • Or, you have a tough day at work. You bravely hold it together, waiting until you can be alone, in your bed, with the TV, and a large bag of chips and a gallon of ice cream.

Do you eat in secret? You know it has nothing to do with the food, right?

Why is it so hard to just be yourself? To eat what really want, without worrying about what others think.

To take care of your stress and your pain with hugs and conversation and maybe some tears, instead of with food.

This is possible. So, let’s talk today about secret eating, why you eat in secret, what it could mean, and how to get rid of that habit.

Because you know how bad it feels when you’re done with your secret eating. Let’s deal with this now, my friend.

Episode 128: Why It’s So Hard to Lose Weight if You Can’t See the Truth About Yourself

Tuesday, June 11th, 2019

Episode 128: Why It’s So Hard to Lose Weight if You Can’t See the Truth About Yourself

Several years ago, I struggled. With just about everything.

Truth Podcast 128

Some days I felt ‘fat’ and other days I was content with my body. Some days I struggled with my eating and other days I just ate naturally. Sometimes I felt attractive, and other days I hated the way I looked. And my moods! I never knew how I’d wake up, feeling up one day and down the next. And I had no idea that I could ever feel a sense of control or understanding of these moods.

My self-image fluctuated wildly. And now I know that this happened because my thoughts about myself were fluctuating wildly too.

I had no compass to tell me the truth. How I really looked and felt and what was real and what was just my story. This takes perspective and being objective about yourself.

Sometimes you have a friend who serves as your mirror. Being with her lets you see yourself as the rest of the world sees you. And then you can be objective about what’s really you.

But sometimes you need the objectivity of a professional, who can see you and help you see yourself. In truth.

Today we’re talking about how to gain some objectivity in how you view life and yourself.

Join me for this short coaching session and ask yourself some important questions about your truth.

Episode 122: Emotional Eating and Your Weight

Tuesday, April 30th, 2019

Episode 122: Emotional Eating and Your Weight

Today we’re going to focus on what I’m guessing is your main issue: emotional eating.

Emotional Eating Podcast 122

This happens when you have linked an emotion with food. So, when you start to feel the beginning of that feeling, whatever it is, and it feels uncomfortable, you have learned to muffle that feeling with food.

The food tastes good, and it distracts you from whatever that feeling was. And so, your habit is formed.

But if you eat from an emotion without hunger, no doubt you will be carrying around some extra weight.

We talked about emotional eating in Episodes 40, 42 and 43. And I thought we should revisit this topic and get really clear so you can understand how to solve this problem.

Do you eat when you’re happy? Do you eat when you’re sad? How about when you’re bored?

Well, this is emotional eating. It includes what some call ‘stress eating’.

All of this type of eating is really a habit. It can feel pretty strong and pretty compelling.

Almost like once the idea to eat comes over you, you have no choice.

But I want to show you that you can learn to separate your mood from your food. And how it’s done.

Join me in this coaching session, in this one-of-many about emotional eating.

Mentioned in this episode:
Episode 7: Managing Your Mind to Manage Your Emotional Eating
Episode 13: Understanding and Ending Your Emotional Eating
Episode 40: Why You Overeat When You’re Stressed
Episode 42: Stop Your Stress Eating, Part 2

Episode 121: Five Reasons You Aren’t Losing Weight

Tuesday, April 23rd, 2019

Episode 121: Five Reasons You Aren’t Losing Weight

I’ll bet you think that you are struggling to lose weight because of a reason that is special and unique to you.

And so, I want to tell you, right from the start, that whatever you think about this special reason… you’re wrong.

Reasons Podcast 121

I’ve seen it all and I’ve heard it all. There are several reasons why some women (and men) struggle with weight loss.

The good news is these reasons are common. And so, they have a common solution. And if anyone can learn and apply that solution, well, you can too.

So here are the reasons you’re probably struggling.

See if you can relate, and then listen in as I talk about these challenges and what to do about them.

  1. You think it’s more about what you’re eating than why you’re eating.
  2. You are so used to escaping your feelings that you can’t picture life without emotional eating.
  3. After eating the way you have for years; you want a super fast solution.
  4. You have no faith in yourself, and don’t really believe you can do it.
  5. You think your case is unique, and that you have some very special reason why you’re different.

My friend, if you can identify with one or more of these reasons, then pull up a chair, AND grab a free downloadable copy of my book and let’s figure this out. Together.

I know you can do this.

Episode 119: Keeping Your Weight Loss Promises

Tuesday, April 9th, 2019

Episode 119: Keeping Your Weight Loss Promises

You probably don’t give it a second thought when you shrug off the promises you made to yourself.

Promises Podcast 119

Promises like not eating when you’re upset, eating when you’re hungry, or giving yourself a few minutes a day to check in with yourself.

Or maybe you do pay attention to your promises, but still just can’t seem to keep them.

Well, keeping your commitment to you is the way to make progress with your weight loss goals. It’s the way to do what you say you’ll do. And all those little steps add up to big changes.

Plus, you earn your own trust and build your confidence, knowing that you’re a person who has integrity. Not only with others, but also with the most important relationship… and that’s the relationship with yourself.

So, here’s what you’ll learn in this important coaching session:

  • What usually happens for you when you try to make a change, to do something new, to do something you really want to be able to do?
  • What do we mean when we talk about commitment, promises?
  • Why it seems easier to keep promises to others than to yourself.
  • Why it even matters whether you do what you say you will do.
  • And how to start keeping your own promises to yourself so you can do what you so much want to do, change your eating so you can eat naturally and get to your natural weight.

Join me as you learn how to make and keep promises to yourself, and why it’s so important.

Episode 118: There is No Hurry

Tuesday, April 2nd, 2019

Episode 118: There is No Hurry

Are you in a perpetual hurry to lose weight? Does that work for you?

Hurry Podcast 118

My educated guess is that it does not work. Hurrying makes you feel panicky and fearful and worried. It makes taking intelligent action hard, if not impossible.

I know that you’re probably in the habit of looking for the quickest fix. We all are these days.

But that quick fix, when it comes to weight loss, simply does not help you get what you want. And what you want is permanent change.

Permanent change comes from changing how you view things and changing your thinking. Then you can more easily change what you do.

If you force yourself to rush and take fast action, you will fall down and likely not get up for a while. And that will make your progress even slower.

So, hurry not only isn’t likely to get you what you want, but it doesn’t feel good. And in order to lose weight permanently, the whole process needs to feel good, so that you will stick with it.

If you’re willing to even consider rejecting your habits of hurried thinking and hurried actions, pull up a comfy chair and come into this coaching session with me.

Let’s take apart your habit of always being in a hurry for weight loss. It will come. But let’s not let hurry stop you because it’s not a sustainable way to live.

Episode 117: How to Stop Quitting When You’re Not Perfect

Tuesday, March 26th, 2019

Episode 117: How to Stop Quitting When You’re Not Perfect

Have you ever failed in your weight loss efforts, and in your desire to leave this whole problem behind you?

Quitting Podcast 117

Of course, you have! Everyone has.

But the even bigger question is: What do you do when you fail? Do you quit? Do you tell yourself you’ll never get this?

If you’re like most of my clients and members of The Freedom Group, that is exactly what you do.

And the problem with that is each time you quit, because you’ve failed, the going gets rougher.

It gets harder and harder to move forward and make progress. You’ve had a fail. You’ve called yourself names and beat yourself up. And now what?

You want to start again. But each fail and each start over… everything is harder.

The real work to do is stick it out. Get up when you fall down. Know that failing is part of growing. In fact, one of my members said this on a call today: Failure is the bridge to success.

Don’t you love that vision? I do.

You need to stick with it and get over the hump when things get challenging and keep going.

Just keep going. Stop quitting. You can do this. Get over that hump.

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 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 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.
