Episode 152: Getting Through the Holidays Without Gaining Weight

If you’ve been following these podcasts and are doing the work on your eating and thinking and self-care, now may be the time for stress.

Or so you think.

Holidays Podcast 152

Here in the U.S. and in many places around the world, it’s holiday season.

That means more food, more temptations to ditch your eating plan, more family drama and more worry about eating.

Am I describing you right now?

In the Freedom Group, lots of our members start worrying about the holidays in October.

For some it’s all about the food itself.

For others, it’s about being alone, or with family members you’re not as connected to as you want to be.

Maybe you’ve made progress in your weight loss journey and you fear losing the progress you’ve made.

Or maybe you’re just beginning and struggling, and you’re afraid that your old habit of non-stop holiday food will keep you stuck in square one.

And self-care? For lots of us, it goes right out the window at this time of year.

Let’s look at all these holiday concerns together. I know for sure that no matter what the calendar says, you can get through the holidays without weight gain and without stress.

Yes, you can even be with family and still honor yourself. And I will show you how.

Let’s do this together and make these holidays the new standard for you to take care of yourself and your eating no matter what day it is.

Episode 151: Why Hunger Can Feel Scary

Episode 151: Why Hunger Can Feel Scary

You’re hungry. You start to feel panicky. Will you be able to eat soon? What type of food will be available? What if there isn’t enough?

Scary Podcast 151

Next thing you know, you’re eating way more than your body needs. But you can’t help it. It’s scary to be hungry.

Or maybe this is what you experience… you’re hungry and you immediately respond by shutting that down. You’re used to dieting and that means you ignore that hunger signal. You can’t eat now – you’re not supposed to. And that’s scary too.

There are so many reasons hunger signals cause you to feel scared, out of control, or panicky.

Today, let’s take a closer look at the thoughts and feelings that come up when you feel physical hunger.

And we’ll talk about why it’s so hard to even wait for hunger in the first place!

We’ll talk about the difference between food restriction and food deprivation. And why you don’t need to worry about either once you learn how to eat like a natural eater.

I’ll explain why hunger is not an emergency – even if your lower brain is telling you otherwise.

We’ll finish up with strategies for handling hunger signals so that you don’t panic, and you don’t respond in ways that derail you from your goals.

You can learn to experience hunger without feeling like it’s an emergency that causes you fear and panic. I’ll show you why it’s so important to learn this and how to do it.

I’ll teach you how to respond from your higher brain, making choices that will serve your body, your goals, and your enjoyment. You’ll be able to replace those scary feelings and panic with peace. Listen in to learn how.

Episode 32: How to Get Past Your Greatest Weight Loss Fears

Tuesday, August 9th, 2016

Episode 32: How to Get Past Your Greatest Weight Loss Fears

It’s inevitable. Just like clockwork. It always comes up.

All my clients think this. Sometimes it comes up early, in the consultation. Other times it comes up after a couple of coaching sessions, once my clients feel more comfortable with me.

Fears Podcast 32

They ask:

  • Have you ever had a client who just couldn’t do it?
  • Couldn’t lose the extra weight?
  • Couldn’t stop emotionally eating? Or binge eating?

You might ask because you’re afraid.

Afraid of being the exception. Afraid of just not being able to do what it takes. Afraid that there’s something wrong with you. And that you will always, always struggle.

Just because you haven’t yet achieved what you want to achieve doesn’t mean you can’t. But I am talking about this today because I really want you to know that you’re not alone in having these fears.

I want you to face these fears and understand where they come from. Why they feel so real to you. And learn how to bust through these fears and do what you really want to do. Eat well. Stop when you’ve had enough. Create a body you feel good in. And live your life.

Join me as I talk about your most secret fears about your weight and your eating, and how to get rid of them now.

Why I Love My Clients

Wednesday, May 14th, 2014

I love my clientsI am so lucky to have the most wonderful and inspiring clients.

I get to work with the most incredible women every day.

I am honored that they bring me their stories.

Their frustrations.

Their hopes.

And together we create a new dream for them.

They are brave. They have the courage and guts to face their fears. To face their demons. And to turn the light on what’s lurking in the dark corners of their minds.

They are inquisitive. Together we look at their past. And how their story about their past created their present. And then we create a present that feels great.

They are resilient. No matter how many times they fall down, they get back up. They never give up in their quest to heal what doesn’t feel right.

They are smart. They know that they can accomplish great things. Whether it’s shedding excess weight, creating better health, working on their relationships or any aspect of their life. Together we figure it out and they can move forward.

They are great people whom I am honored to know.

Honored to work with.

And in my book, my clients deserve a standing ovation.

They are doing their work.

And isn’t that why we’re all here?

To become the best version of ourselves?

Xoxo,
Cookie
