Episode 120: The Four Stages of Weight Loss

Are you frustrated because you can’t seem to stop eating?

Stages Podcast 120

I’d like you to take a more detailed look at these times when you can’t stop eating.

Because the way I think about it, you may be making progress that you just can’t see yet.

There are four stages of losing weight. And you need to get through all four of them to be able to eat the way you’d like to eat.

And, if you know about the four stages, you’ll be able to see where you are, understand why you’re there, and keep moving forward.

So, what are these stages?

  1. Stage 1 is when you’ve just overeaten, and you realize what has happened when it’s all over.
  2. Stage 2 is when you’re in the middle of overeating, you see what you are doing, and yet you just can’t get yourself to stop.
  3. Stage 3 is when you are able to see what you’re about to do. You haven’t started overeating yet. You are able to step back and see what is happening. And still, you can’t stop the habit. You eat anyway.
  4. And finally, Stage 4 is when you’re about to overeat, you see what is happening, and yes! You are able to stop yourself! This is big!

So, what we’re going to talk about today are these four stages.

I will tell you why you’re in each one. You’ll learn what you’re likely to do and think at each stage. And, I will help you get a good perspective of where you are, and what’s ahead, so you don’t give up.

Join me as I coach you and teach you a new way to look at your attempts to stop eating without hunger and lose your extra weight.

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 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 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.

How to Keep Doing What Works

Wednesday, December 13th, 2017

Keep doing what worksA while back, I completed a class on weight loss coaching. It was one of the most intense experiences in my life.

In a good way.

I love taking classes and view it as an integral ingredient for my happiness.

So, I finished the class and was certified.

And I had gained a few pounds.

What?

A weight loss coach, training on weight loss and gaining weight?

Yup!

Here’s what happened.

When you’re trying to make a change in your life, it usually involves stopping something you are doing and starting something you aren’t doing.

You pay attention.

You keep track.

In my case, I was on a daily forum, posting my thoughts, my feelings, my weight(!) and what I ate.

We were all totally focused.

We got into a groove.

And it worked.

After a few weeks of doing a new thing, we started to get some momentum.

Aha!

We created the good feelings we wanted.

We think we’re over the hump.

And suddenly, wham!

We slip and slide and lose touch with ourselves and assume we’re back where we started.

That’s what happened to me.

During this intense class, I lost several pounds. Very close to my ideal weight. I felt great!

And then when class was over, the weight came back.

This happens all the time to my clients.

First, know that when you slide backwards from a change you’re making, you’re never really back where you started.

You can’t erase what you’ve learned.

It’s in your head.

But notice what you did.

You stopped.

Stopped focusing.

Stopped paying attention.

And stopped taking the actions that were working.

So, does this mean you need to keep doing what works, what you were doing to lose weight if you want to keep it off?

YES!

You do. Keep doing what works.

Change is a long-term process.

It’s challenging.

You are re-training your brain to take a new route to work.

And this requires practice.

Knowing this ahead of time helps you prepare yourself for your change to be permanent.

So, what can YOU do to make your change more permanent? (I am right with you here.)

When things are going well, stop and notice how you feel. This good feeling is your goal.

Look at what you’re thinking when things are going well. These are your new go-to thoughts that will keep you on track. Put them on an index card, on your fridge, in your car and on your computer. I’m not kidding. These thoughts got you where you are. Capture them!

Now, take a good look at the actions you’ve been taking. They worked, right? So, you need to keep doing them. For a long time.

Any change you make is a series of steps.

Of thoughts.

Of feelings.

And of actions.

You don’t just do them a few times and wake up a new person.

But once you’ve done them, and you feel good, just keep going.

Keep focusing.

Keep tracking yourself.

And keep doing what works.

That’s the secret.

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.

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.

Mentioned in this episode: Episode 5: Working on Project YOU: Creating Your Weight Loss Blueprint
