Episode 170: Why Now is Better than Someday

Episode 170: Why Now is Better than Someday

Do you want something different than what you have today? Do you want to feel different? To do different things? To get different results?

Now Podcast 170

I hear you! Of course, you do. And that doesn’t mean you don’t appreciate what you have and who you are today. It means you want more. You want growth. You want to live as a better version of who you are.

That means allowing yourself to feel good now, even while you are going through a really challenging time. I want you to prioritize taking good care of you and your loved ones. And once you are safe and healthy, it’s okay to feel good now. It’s okay to move between fear and worry and back to gratitude and peace.

In addition to feeling good now, it’s also okay and even good to keep moving toward what you want most. After your needs are taken care of, now is the time to take steps in the direction of your dreams.

Time marches on, life marches on, and so do you. In the moment when you know you are okay, allow your good feelings to be present AND allow yourself to take steps toward what you wish for. Remember that someday is not real. Someday is a concept in the future, an easy way to let your brain stop worrying about today, but never really getting where you want to go.

I’d love to be your support and your guide to help you get through this big challenge.

Learning to manage your mind during a crisis is such a valuable skill. Let’s come through this together, better than we were before.

Episode 166: Middle of the Night Eating

Get your FREE worksheet for this episode!


Do you ever wake up in the middle of the night, looking for food? Maybe you’re actually hungry, or maybe it’s just your habit.

Night Eating Podcast 166

In the moment, it feels like you have no choice but to follow this strong urge. And so, you do.

In the moment you don’t give it a lot of thought; there’s just this super-strong urge. And you probably go back to sleep after you’ve eaten. But the next morning is a different story, as you are wracked with guilt and regret.

Feeling bad and frustrated won’t help. But I do want you to do something about this, so it doesn’t become an even stronger habit.

In this coaching session I will tell you exactly what it might look and feel like so you can know if middle-of-the-night eating is what you are struggling with.

Then we will talk about all the possible reasons you might be doing this. We’ll talk about how it started and what to do about it.

This is a habit you definitely don’t want to keep around; there’s no doubt about that. But rest assured that this night eating habit, like all others, can be changed. And I will show you how, right here. See you in the session!

Episode 165: How to Eat with an Irregular Schedule

Tuesday, February 25th, 2020

Episode 165: How to Eat with an Irregular Schedule

A lot of my clients complain about their schedules. So many things come up! And so many things just don’t happen as they were planned.

Schedule Podcast 165

Sometimes your regular schedule gets disrupted and you have to change all your plans.

Other times your schedule is regularly up and down. It’s always irregular. And that is normal for you.

What I hear is that so many of my clients and listeners blame the normal ups and downs of their life for their irregular eating. For their overeating. And for their out-of-control eating.

Does an irregular schedule have to lead to irregular eating?

What is true? Can you actually stick to your plans and work toward healthy weight loss when your calendar is looking a little crazy?

The answer is yes! And that’s what we will talk about today.

Not only will I show you how to stop blaming and complaining about the fluctuations of your schedule, but I will also show you what to do about it.

You know me and you know there will be some thinking involved. But together, we will figure this out.

Episode 163: Are You Rebelling Against Yourself When You Overeat?

Tuesday, February 11th, 2020

Episode 163: Are You Rebelling Against Yourself When You Overeat?

Do you think if someone had a way of ‘making you’ do something, that you’d be so happy? Because then you’d really stick to your eating plan or go to the gym.

Rebelling Podcast 163

But then, when you do join a diet program or hire that personal trainer, you still find yourself quitting?

If you do, you are not alone.

And as silly as this might sound, you are really rebelling against yourself. You’re the one who wants to achieve something, to change a habit, or to just show up differently.

But when you set things up to do just that, you find yourself thinking things like:

  • I don’t care!
  • I don’t have to!
  • No one can make me do that!

And the next thing you know you are off your plan, headed in the opposite direction of your goal.

This is rebellion at it’s worst, because you are actually rebelling only against yourself. Hmmm. Not exactly what you planned to do, right?

In this coaching session we will take a good look at how you might be rebelling against yourself, why you might be in the habit of doing that, and, of course, how to stop doing it!

You know what you need to do. Now, let’s work together to help you actually do that. Without the rebellion. No more excuses!

Episode 152: Getting Through the Holidays Without Gaining Weight

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

Tuesday, November 19th, 2019

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 150: Why You Must Make Time for Weight Loss

Tuesday, November 12th, 2019

Episode 150: Why You Must Make Time for Weight Loss

It’s another Monday and you’re motivated to start a new weight loss plan. This time, you say to yourself, I’m ready.

Time Podcast 150

For a few days or even a couple of weeks, you’re staying on your plan. You don’t have to think too much about it.

And then, the inevitable. Something or someone throws a wrench into your plans. You have to work late or there is a family emergency, or you’re worn out from too many commitments, or maybe it’s that you’re going on that long-awaited vacation.

But no matter what “it” is, the next thing you know, you tell yourself you’ll just have to plan on getting back on track after this is over with.

Sound familiar? It’s a cycle that you’ve been through before. That much I know.

But this cycle doesn’t get you where you want to go. It doesn’t help you reach your weight loss goal.

Something is missing. But what is it?

That something is time. Making time for your weight loss plan. Making time for yourself. And making your weight loss a priority. Every day. No matter what comes up.

Listen in today as I explain why making time for weight loss is so important to reaching your goal.

Episode 148: Do You Love Food Too Much?

Tuesday, October 29th, 2019

Episode 148: Do You Love Food Too Much?

Have you ever said this? “I just can’t lose weight because I’m a real food lover.”

Love Food Podcast 148

Well, this is just not true. We all love food, really. Me too!

But when we love something, there is no drive to overdo it. Just the right amount is perfect. And too much is too much.

When you love something, you don’t use it for things it’s not intended for. You don’t eat delicious food because you are sad. You don’t eat 12 cookies because you are excited.

You eat food because you love it, and you eat it slowly enough to taste it. Slowly enough to really savor it. And you get maximum pleasure out of it.

When you use food inappropriately, to make yourself feel good, it’s not because you love it so much.

It’s because you aren’t taking responsibility for yourself. For your emotions. And this is VERY different from eating because you love food.

I want you to enjoy the foods you love. AND learn to manage your emotional life. AND, see that they are two different things.

Here is where we do that, together.

Episode 145: Should I Have Just a Little? Or None at All?

Tuesday, October 8th, 2019

Episode 145: Should I Have Just a Little? Or None at All?

How often do you struggle with this?

Little Podcast 145

You are offered a piece of chocolate cake. Your mind immediately starts weighing the pros and the cons.

Should you have a little bit of it? Or should you say no?

What will be easier? What will create more of a struggle?

While you know yourself, I wonder if you know what makes this decision easier or harder for you.

The first thing that I want you to look at is your thoughts, of course! If you think ‘one bite and I’m out of control’, that is a hint that you might find it easier to have none than just a little of that chocolate cake.

Your thinking creates your emotions. And if your emotions are deprived and helpless, when thinking about not having a treat, we can look at this and decide what you really want to do.

You’ll learn why having some isn’t better or worse than having none of that tempting food at all. It all depends on what is easier for you. And I’ll show you how to make the whole decision easier.

Are you ready? Will you have a little bit? Or will it be easier to just skip the cake?

Let’s find out!

Episode 144: How to Deal with Other People’s Moods Without Eating

I used to be totally ruled by the moods of my husband, my two daughters and my friends.

Moods Podcast 144

If they were in a good mood, I’d be good. I’d feel relieved and peaceful. But if they weren’t, everything felt up for grabs.

If they were sad, I’d feel sad.

If they were worried, I’d jump right in there on the worry bus with them.

And if they were angry about something, guess who’d be angry too? Me, of course!

Now I have so much more understanding about moods than I used to. I know what creates my own moods. And, I really understand what creates the moods of others around us.

And that’s what I want to share with you today.

Because what you ultimately want to do is to experience your own moods, the good and the bad AND be with someone else and their moods, without running to eat to feel better. This is a step toward ending your emotional eating.

No matter what mood the people around you are in, you have a choice of how you feel. This is our work today.

Join me in this coaching session where we shine the light on moods, especially the moods of those around us.
