Episode 133: Why Planning Ahead Really Works

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 129: How Accountability and Structure Help You Lose Your Eating Issues

Tuesday, June 18th, 2019

Episode 129: How Accountability and Structure Help You Lose Your Eating Issues

What do you think of when I say the word accountability?

Accountability Podcast 129

Do you think of your old strict 5th grade teacher, asking you for your book report? I thought so.

And what do you think about when I talk about structure?

Do you think of a rigid schedule that has no flexibility and feels a little like prison? Yup. I thought that you might think that.

So, here’s the reality. When you want to achieve something, anything, you need to have a path. Some guidelines. Some things in place that help you know where you are going, how to get there, and signs that you’ve arrived.

Well, that’s exactly what accountability and structure give you. They give you a framework for doing what you most want to do. These are things you can create for yourself, by you, for you. So, there is nothing to rebel against.

Let’s take a look at how accountability and structure can very positively affect how you eat and how you deal with food, so that you can get what you want: ending that emotional eating, losing that extra weight, and living your best life.

Here we go! Join me.

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 116: How to Believe You Can Lose Weight for Good

Tuesday, March 19th, 2019

Episode 116: How to Believe You Can Lose Weight for Good

You make a plan and you’re committed.

But you have nagging doubts that you can accomplish your weight loss goals.

Believe Podcast 116

And of course, you do!

You’ve never done this before, and you have no evidence that you can do it.

You’re thinking, I’ll believe it when I see it.

So how can you move forward and get where you want to go if you don’t believe in yourself?

The answer is simple.

You create the beliefs you want to have. And then you practice the heck out of them.

Yes, you can choose what you believe.

I know your current beliefs feel right. They feel like the truth. So even if they give you some not-so-great feelings, you assume they are just the truth.

Here’s the scoop: your beliefs are simply thoughts. Stories in your mind. And you’ve given these thoughts so much attention, and so much emotion, that over time, they become very strong. And very accessible.

And eventually, they simply feel true to you.

The good news is that even your long-held beliefs can be examined and replaced with beliefs that are more congruent with you, your life, and your desires.

So, let’s get to work on uncovering and shining the light on those beliefs of yours. The ones that stop you in your tracks every time you try to break out of your old patterns.

And then, you get to choose.

See you in the coaching session!

We are very proud and grateful to be featured in the Top 30 Women Podcasts. Thank you!

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 112: Why You Should Use Non-Scale Goals and Non-Scale Victories

Tuesday, February 19th, 2019

Episode 112: Why You Should Use Non-Scale Goals and Non-Scale Victories

Does your scale frustrate you?

Non-scale podcast 112

Does getting on the scale sometimes give you a great day, and then you go celebrate with extra treats?

Or maybe it gives you a bad day, and then you attempt to cheer yourself up with extra food your body isn’t hungry for.

Either way, it feels like you are giving your scale too much power in your life.

Who wants to be told whether to be miserable or joyful based on a number on a piece of plastic and metal?

Yet, you do want some way to set goals, and then measure your progress toward them.

Here it is!

And here’s what you’ll learn today:

  • What are non-scale goals and non-scale victories?
  • Why you might want to consider divorcing your scale.
  • Understand the appeal of the scale and the numbers.
  • What might change for you with non-scale goals and victories.
  • How to use different goals and checkpoints along the way to measure your progress on your weight loss journey.
  • The best way to stay motivated in your quest to eat naturally and drop your extra weight.
  • Some of the amazing benefits you will get as your eating normalizes, that have nothing to do with the number on the scale.
  • And, how your focus on the number of pounds on your body can negate any progress you’ve made.

Please join me as we dive into the scale and its alternatives.

Episode 103: Why Slowing Down Helps Your Weight Loss

Tuesday, December 19th, 2017

Episode 103: Why Slowing Down Helps Your Weight Loss

How do you operate? I mean, in your life. Do you rush through everything, trying to get to the end of your ‘to do’ list? Do you pause to smell the roses?

Slowing down podcast 103

And if you do rush through, at 1.5 speed, how is that working for you? How is it working when you are trying to change how you eat, how you do things, how you deal with challenges?

My guess is that it doesn’t work. I’ve learned the hard way that leaving no time and no space in my schedule doesn’t give me the results I want. Actually, it tends to give me the opposite of what I want.

There needs to be some time and space in your life. To think. This is critical, especially in areas where you want to make changes.

And yet, if you’re anything like me, I can hear you protest:

“There is no time to slow down! My kids! My job! My commitments! My opportunities!”

So, you may continue to run at 1.5 speed, and then beat yourself up, because, guess what? Those changes you want to make? They aren’t happening.

Here’s the deal, my friend. You can do it all and you can have it all. But not all at once. And you need to slow down in order to think. And that is how you create change in your life.

Join me and let’s deal with all the reasons you’re already thinking that you can’t possibly slow down.

Episode 94: Don’t Believe All Your Thoughts

Tuesday, October 17th, 2017

Episode 94: Don’t Believe All Your Thoughts

Wait a minute – you shouldn’t believe everything you think? Aren’t your thoughts true? They sure seem to be the truth.

Thoughts podcast 94

Where do your thoughts even come from? What happens if you question your thoughts? And while we’re at it, what’s the difference between a thought, a belief, and a feeling?

We make a lot of assumptions every day – about our thoughts, our beliefs, our feelings, and our reality.

There is so much going on in your mind – all the time – that’s true. But you have the power to choose which thoughts to pay attention to. And what you choose affects your reality. But how do you choose?

Today we’ll talk about where your thoughts come from, how to know which ones to believe, and how to take back your power over them.

Listen to this coaching session to learn how your thoughts create your reality. Then use that knowledge to start creating an even better life for yourself – one thought at a time.
