Episode 146: Boredom Eating

Episode 146: Boredom Eating

Ho hum! Another lull in your day. Nothing exciting to do. Not much to think about.

Might as well grab something to eat!

Is this you?

Boredom Podcast 146

Although eating from boredom was never my thing, SO many of my former clients and Freedom Group members have told me that this is their biggest struggle.

If you’ve ever gone to eat something with no hunger, and seemingly no problem, you know what I mean.

It’s the excitement you are looking for. The pleasure. And yes, that hit of dopamine that you crave.

But wait! This is a habit you don’t want to keep.

Because it will give you a gift you don’t want. All that extra weight. And a strong link between an emotion and the chips, ice cream and Snickers bars.

So, join me as I deconstruct the idea of boredom:

  • What it is.
  • Why you feel it.
  • What it feels like.
  • What creates that feeling of being bored.
  • And a new way to both look at it, and not eat from it.

I know if you solved this issue, your eating would be less stressed, and your old habits of eating from feelings would start to fade away.

Let’s do this!

Episode 139: Stop Saying “That’s Just Who I Am”

Tuesday, August 27th, 2019

Episode 139: Stop Saying “That’s Just Who I Am”

In this podcast I’ll talk about why saying, “That’s just who I am” after a failure is so harmful to your weight loss success.

Who I Am Podcast 139

If you fail at some part of your weight loss plan and let that derail you, you won’t reach your goal.

You might think, “I’ve failed – again – so I might as well give up” but that isn’t helpful.

But what do you say and do instead?

I’ll show you three very important things to do after a failure instead of saying, “That’s just who I am.” And these three things will make all the difference.

If you want to learn what to do about that fail you just had, listen in.

What you say and do next will be the difference between giving up and reaching your goal.

Episode 135: KonMari Your Mind

Tuesday, July 30th, 2019

Episode 135: KonMari Your Mind

The KonMari Method, created by Marie Kondo, is a set of rules and a mindset for tidying up – decluttering – your home.

KonMari Podcast 135

You can apply the KonMari method to your mind, decluttering your thoughts.

The KonMari Method has 6 rules:

  1. Commit yourself to tidying up.
  2. Imagine your ideal lifestyle.
  3. Discard what really doesn’t work.
  4. Tidy by category, not location.
  5. Follow the right order.
  6. Ask yourself if it sparks joy.

In this coaching session I’ll explain why decluttering your mind is important for reaching your goals. And I’ll show you how to adapt the KonMari rules to do this.

I’ll walk you through each step so you can begin discarding thoughts that are not useful or joyful. It’s time to KonMari your mind!

Episode 134: Do You Expect to Lose Weight on Day 1?

Tuesday, July 23rd, 2019

Episode 134: Do You Expect to Lose Weight on Day 1?

In today’s coaching session we’re going to talk about what you expect when you start a new weight loss plan or program.

Expect Podcast 134

You’re so excited (and a bit scared) when you get started. You’re ready to really do it this time, aren’t you?

You may not want to admit it, but secretly you’re hoping to get on the scale tomorrow and see big changes. When you don’t, you get discouraged. And most likely, the new plan doesn’t last.

If that sounds familiar, listen in as I talk about this topic.

There are six things I’ll cover:

  1. What your expectations are when you start a new weight loss plan.
  2. Why you have these expectations.
  3. What happens when reality doesn’t match your expectations.
  4. The results of this pattern (it’s a never-ending cycle.)
  5. What is realistic to expect when you start a new plan.
  6. And what that reality requires of you.

Understand why you expect this and why it’s unrealistic. And these expectations are unrealistic. (We’re keeping it real here – I’ll always tell you the hard truth.)

How do you stop this cycle of starting a new weight loss plan, having unrealistic expectations, getting discouraged, and then quitting? Learn what to do instead of repeating that pattern.

I’ll show you how to see what is required of you if you want to succeed. And I’ll teach you what’s needed so you can stay on plan, stay on the path, and achieve your goal.

Join me for this coaching session and let’s put an end to the cycle of start-stop-repeat. It’s not getting you the results you want. It’s time to learn what to do instead.

Episode 133: Why Planning Ahead Really Works

Tuesday, July 16th, 2019

Episode 133: Why Planning Ahead Really Works

Let’s take an honest look at how you’re deciding what to eat and when to eat.

Planning Podcast 133

If you’re letting triggers other than physical hunger determine what and when you eat, you’re not alone.

There are many triggers to eat that have nothing to do with physical hunger in your body. But continuing to be triggered to eat without hunger will not get you to your goal.

Triggers to eat are all around us, all the time. And they’re not going anywhere. What’s important is to learn how to respond to them in a way that actually helps you.

You already know I believe in planning ahead of time, both for what and when you eat. So, in today’s coaching session, let’s look at why planning works and why it’s important to your weight loss success.

I’ll explain why you’re susceptible to triggers (hint: it’s your lower brain) and what you can do about it. I’ll show you how you can retrain your brain. How you can create new programming (using your higher brain) that will build new habits in response to old triggers.

You may resist planning because of old associations with dieting rules and restrictions. We’ll talk about that in this coaching session, too.

Planning works because when you plan ahead – deciding ahead of time what and when you will eat – you are using your brain’s executive functions. And that provides you with guidance that always serves your highest good. Planning ahead is a foundational skill of eating like a natural eater.

Let’s get started so I can show you why planning really works and how you can begin using this tool today.

Episode 132: How to Stick to Your Weight Loss Plan for the Long Haul

Tuesday, July 9th, 2019

Episode 132: How to Stick to Your Weight Loss Plan for the Long Haul

Are you part of the way to your goal and wondering how to stick with it? This episode will help you with that.

Stick with It Podcast 132

Sometimes, when you have a big goal that requires a lot of time and commitment, it’s easy to lose your way.

You might find yourself doubtful that you can keep up with what got you to this point. You might find that you’re not quite as motivated as you need to be. As you were in the beginning. Or you might find yourself slipping back into old patterns. Patterns that aren’t helpful in getting you closer to what you want.

I want to show you, in this coaching session, how to hold onto the success you’ve created so far, and how to move forward without losing ground or motivation.

This requires looking at your beliefs about yourself. About what you think you are capable of. And about staying for the long haul.

This means knowing how to motivate yourself when that sticky note on your computer screen is no longer noticeable to you.

And this is what you need to do. You need to keep your eye on where you are going. And, at the same time, on what your next step will be.

You’ll learn how to know what to focus on, and when to switch focus. From the future, to the present, and back again and again and again.

You’re creating a new path for yourself. A smooth path. It’s rocky today. But if you stick with it, it will get easier.

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

Tuesday, June 25th, 2019

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 43: Emotional Eating: Why You Need to Feel ALL Your Feelings

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.
