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 127: Why Self-Care Helps You Lose Weight

Tuesday, June 4th, 2019

Episode 127: Why Self-Care Helps You Lose Weight

Are you an emotional eater? Check.

Do you give yourself a food treat when you’re sad or tired or angry or need comforting? Check.

Do you think of chocolate as one of your BFFs? Check.

Self-Care Podcast 127

Okay. Grab a seat and join me in this coaching session. I want to show you how and why self-care helps you stop using food as your main pleasure.

We think that having a treat is what we need. But the truth is that most women I work with have no idea what they need. They don’t take the time to figure out what they are really hungry for. And food seems to be the easiest answer.

But if you are carrying extra weight on your body, you already know that food is not the answer. And you may not know how to break this habit of using food for self-care and comfort and a whole lot of things it’s not meant for.

This is where I can help you. Let’s disconnect food from mood and create a self-care plan for your Project YOU. It will feel SO much better.

Episode 126: The Talk in Your Mind that Drives You Crazy

Tuesday, May 28th, 2019

Episode 126: The Talk in Your Mind that Drives You Crazy

Have you ever thought that you are driving yourself crazy? If you step back and listen to all the things you think about your eating and your weight, it’s not surprising that you might think that.

Talk Podcast 126

Imagine the jumble of thoughts you’re thinking about your eating. Why am I eating this? What should I be eating? Why can’t I stick to my plan? What’s wrong with me?

And the list goes on and on and on. It’s enough to drive you crazy. But wait! You are the one thinking those thoughts. You are the one creating that swirl of confusion.

Now, I’m not blaming you. And you shouldn’t blame yourself either. But I think it helps to know that if your thoughts are creating a mess of confusion, then your thoughts are the way out of that confusion.

We all talk to ourselves. You are no exception. I want your self-talk to be honest, but compassionate. And productive.

I want you to be able to think your way out of the mess you’re in. This is doable. And this is what you will learn.

Please join me in this coaching session where we take apart all those crazy-making thoughts in your head, slow them down, and create more meaningful ways of thinking.

And yes, create thoughts that will feel better to you.

Episode 125: Will Eating This Be Worth It?

Tuesday, May 21st, 2019

Episode 125: Will Eating This Be Worth It?

The ultimate question that you may never ask yourself. Too often we eat because of a feeling, a memory or a need that has nothing to do with our hunger.

Worth It Podcast 125

This is not good, right? This is what gives you extra weight to carry around. If your body isn’t hungry, no matter what you think the food may do for you, it will always be extra food that you don’t need.

And extra food is always stored as fat. Period.

So, if you want to lose that extra weight, you need to start questioning yourself before you eat without hunger.

And a good way to do that is to ask: “Will eating this be worth it?”

That will require you to look ahead into the future and think about how you will feel after you eat this thing.

What do you hope eating now will do for you? What are you hoping to accomplish by eating right now?

I want you to learn to look ahead and make your decision about whether to eat based on the results you’ll get. The consequences you’re creating. Because that is the reality.

And rather than just feel bad after you eat something you shouldn’t have, let’s get in the habit of deciding whether this food, these bites, are worth it to you.

That is the question I want you to ask yourself if you want to eat when you aren’t hungry: “Will eating this be worth it?”

Episode 124: I’ll Just Have a Bite and Other Weight Loss Lies We Tell Ourselves

Tuesday, May 14th, 2019

Episode 124: I’ll Just Have a Bite and Other Weight Loss Lies We Tell Ourselves

Do you ever say this to yourself?

  • I’ll just have a bite.
  • I deserve a little treat.
  • I’ll start fresh tomorrow.

Lies Podcast 124

If so, you’re certainly not alone. You may be the most honest person you know, yet when it comes to telling the real truth to yourself, you’re falling a little short.

You want to believe yourself when you say, “I’ll just have a little.” But when we’re talking about eating without hunger, you need to look at your history.

And your history shows that when you start eating for the wrong reason, it tends to keep going.

This is the truth. You want to eat ____________ and you’re not hungry. The truth is, whenever you do this, a little bit becomes a lot. And that is the truth about why you can’t lose weight.

I want you to take a deep look at all the little lies you tell yourself. Some of them may be about eating. And some of them may be about other habits you have, like starting over and over with anything you’re working on.

The feeling these thoughts create feels so real… because it is. It might make you feel justified or entitled to do this thing, or to eat this thing. But since that feeling comes from a little lie you tell yourself, it’s not a feeling based on your reality.

Join me today in this coaching session to uncover the lies you are in the habit of telling yourself.

And let’s wipe the slate clean. You are a person who does not tell lies. Ever. Not even to yourself.

Episode 123: Tough Times Without Overeating

Tuesday, May 7th, 2019

Episode 123: Tough Times Without Overeating

How are you in your life right now? Are you peaceful? Or stressed?

Wherever you are, know that life is full of hills and valleys. We all go through tough times and big challenges.

Tough Times Podcast 123

Of course, you don’t want to go through a tough time. But this is part of living. And it really makes you appreciate the normal, everyday ups and downs.

The question for today is: How can you get through tough times without resorting to emotional eating?

Do you call it stress eating? Or emotional eating? Whatever you call it, it happens when you tell yourself you can’t handle a painful emotion.

And so, you feel something that doesn’t feel good, and you eat to escape the feeling.

I want you to be able to get through the toughest times and still not go to food that your body doesn’t need.

Can you do this? Yes. You can.

In this coaching session I will walk you through figuring out how you want to show up for the challenges that life will give you. Without eating your way through.

When you get through this tough time, I want you to look back and feel proud, and that you did the best you could do.

Is this hard? Is this a challenge in itself? Maybe. But if you’ve got a plan, and you know how to think your way through it, you’ve got this. Without overeating.

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 114: What Would True Freedom Taste Like?

Tuesday, March 5th, 2019

Episode 114: What Would True Freedom Taste Like?

I know you want to lose weight or change the way you eat. We both know this. But what if I could lead you on a journey that would lead you to a whole new way of being in the world?

Freedom podcast 114

What if your ultimate goal was much more than a number? What if your ultimate goal was… dare I say it… freedom?

Freedom from obsessing about your weight. About your size. About what you ate or didn’t eat. About whether you were good or bad that day. And about how you looked.

What I want to introduce to you today is the concept of freedom. Freedom from the whole issue.

Today, in our coaching session, I want to talk to you about freedom. What it means and why I believe this should be your goal.

I know that freedom is hard for you to imagine. And I will tell you why this is.

And I know that you may think that you’re the big exception. You’re not.

I’ll show you how to get out of your old habitual thoughts that hold you back. And give you a new perspective on freedom from the whole weight struggle.

And, even if you’ve never succeeded at your weight goals before, I’ll show you how to cultivate belief in yourself, that yes, you CAN do this.

How do you get this freedom? Join me as I talk you through this.

Eating Is Always Your Choice

Thursday, February 28th, 2019

girl makes a choiceYou are always in charge of your eating.

Whether your choice is to eat or not eat.

How much you choose to eat.

When you start eating.

When you stop.

And, of course, what you eat.

Being in charge gives us a sense of freedom. It takes away the need to struggle.

No need to call upon willpower.

You don’t have to be ‘good’.

Because you are not forcing yourself to follow some external rules.

You are simply in charge and are following the guidelines of your body.

Eat when it’s hungry.

Stop when it’s satisfied.

And give it what it wants.

But, as soon as you begin to tell yourself to ‘be good’, or to ‘be careful’, or to not have something so you can lose weight as fast as possible, you will begin to rebel.

You will feel like you are being deprived.

That there is some restriction on what you can and cannot eat. And that you are no longer in charge.

And that, my friend, is the kiss of death to eating like a naturally slim person.

When you make up rules for yourself, or you follow someone else’s rules for your body, you will want to rebel against the rules and eat with abandon.

Your brilliant brain will respond to restriction and deprivation with overindulgence.

Binge eating.

And weight gain.

It’s just a little thing called survival. And we’re all wired for it.

Your brain is just doing what it’s supposed to do.

So play along.

Stop telling yourself that you have to eat or not eat something.

Instead, you are choosing to eat or not eat something because you want to, and because you think it will feel good and right in your body.

Not because you have to.

Because as soon as your brain hears: don’t, have to, should, or must!… it will respond with the urge to eat…

And you are not in survival mode.

Be relaxed as you make your choices.

And teach your brain that is wired for survival that you are just fine, thank you.

You don’t need to overdo anything because you are always able to get what you need.

You always have a choice.

And having choices is what freedom feels like.

Episode 113: Creating a Weight Loss Transformation

Episode 113: Creating a Weight Loss Transformation

Welcome, my friend.

If you are listening to the Weight Loss Made Real podcast, you are probably a fan of self-help and personal development.

Me too!

Transformation podcast 113

I can read and listen to those subjects endlessly.

But what I want to talk with you about today is even more than self-help. It’s self-transformation.

That’s right. Not just changing your habits or bettering a part of your life.

It’s about taking your whole self to a whole new level.

It’s about creating a new version of you.

Evolving into the you that you always wished you could be.

In order to do this, I want to walk you through what it will take.

So, we will start today by defining transformation.

And how you would know if you are ready for a transformation.

We’ll cover why you never achieved this new state of being before.

I want you to be clear and know what it would feel like to still be you but be an upleveled version of you.

And there are mental shifts you’ll achieve along the way.

Of course, you won’t go to bed as the caterpillar and wake up as the butterfly.

But there are signposts that you can look for that will tell you you’re on the right track.

And, I will show you the exact stages you will pass through on your way to the new you. Really.

Let’s change how you see yourself.

And what’s possible for you.

And, how to do this.

I will see you in the coaching session.
